Thank you for the feedback - I'm very glad you enjoyed the game and the characterisations.
Ah, and someone else who does their first playthrough blind! I always do that as well - I call it my 'canon playthrough'.
Unfortunately for me and my less than stellar otome skills, most of the time my 'canon ending' tends to be 'No one likes you, and you die alone to be eaten by your cats'. >_>
Which is why I guess I like to include plenty of conversation options that are just for role-play purposes. I find I can really get into role-playing the character when I don't have to worry that one 'wrong' answer is going to condemn me to a bad ending.
Anyway, it was lovely to hear to what you enjoyed about the game and I hope you find BFF just as engaging.
Many thanks for playing.
