This is a great visual novel, and actually its probably my favorite one I've ever played (read? not sure what verb to use there!). I tend to get a little bored with visual novels, or I zoom through them so quick that nothing really stays with me. But I felt like the pacing was really great, and the romance options didn't bore me at all. I was torn between Piper and Alkar, but by chance I spent the festival with Alkar first and fell in love! I'm very invested now and I can't wait until Chapter 9!
