This game is absolutely lovely. The character sprites are gorgeous, the backgrounds are beautiful- the interactions are charming and fun. I adore that there are (almost) no bad endings, and trust me I played all of them. It was so refreshing to see a game where the main character (almost) always kept her independence, desire for justice, and need to help others. Charming is a really fun protagonist and I found that I never got annoyed or tired of playing as her. The princes were really nice as well. I really liked all the different routes. If I HAD to pick one, I'd probably pick Zel's "better' route, because he is very sweet and reminds me of myself in a way with his shyness eheh. But yes, overall this is a fantastic game and I absolutely cannot wait for the expansion of this story and more options!
(Just a note to start off with: This is the writer of Lads in Distress / Catfish Crew.

Hello! Thank you very much for playing Lads in Distress, NaNoRenO version!
First, I must apologize for the extremely late reply >_< I don't log on the CatfishCrew account anymore as I'm usually on this EG account to keep track of our new games under this account, so I didn't see the notifications about new comments.
Anyways, thank you very much for the kind words and compliments! :D We're really glad that you like Charming; we wanted to make a proactive protagonist, so we're glad that the players like her too!
We now have a new demo for the full version of the game up, which covers the new common route + 2 scenes per route (with Ellis and Nicholl as two new love interests), in case you're interested! :)
Thank you again for playing LiD!
