It's just speculation on my part, and nothing definitive, but...yeah. I really, really hope everything turns out okay for her. Please be okay, Agashi!

Got in contact with the RA team. According to them, Agashi's last contact with them was in mid-October. She had to "cancel" her contract with the team due family issues that resulted into major health issues. She still wanted to help out, but couldn't anymore on frequent basis. They haven't had contact since.
Does this sound similar to what you found hiraeth? To be honest, I fear something happened with her husband and kid.
Agashi is listed as a story consultant for the Royal Alchemist. Which, important to note, is different from writer and a bit less essential, so any contact from Agashi to the rest of the Royal Alchemist team may be sparse. If none of the other contacts pan out, we can try asking them for more info, although I don't expect much. Communication with them might well have been dropped too.
I'm one of the higher tier backers who was promised a character to be inserted to the game. I don't believe this project was a scam-the creator was very active in responding to my emails, gave me several character sketches and even had them redone when she changed artists. We discussed some bits of the world and story, and it seemed clear to me there was more she wanted to show. I'm not going to say being a scam is a complete impossibility, but I have a hard time believing a kickstarter scammer would go through that much effort for that long. Her enthusiasm for the game seemed too genuine for someone who was only after money, but I get its easy to cloak yourself on the net.
The last correspondence I had with her was November 14th, where she was responding to an email I sent on the 13th. In that email, she mentioned having to deal with moving and mental health issues. She said she'd mention these in her next kickstarter update, which she said would go up on November 15th. She thanked me for contacting her and said "it was the final nudge I needed". The date passed and I figured she got busy, and have an update up by mid-December maximum. As we know, that hope didn't come to pass either.
I contacted her through that same email chain on Jan 11th and haven't gotten a reply yet...Things happen, so I gave her a weekish grace period to reply. But it's now the 21st, and I'm frustrated at a lack of reply and worried. To be honest, I want to get in contact with the other superbacker-maybe that'd shed more things to light on the situation. It'd help get closure if it really is the worst case scenario.
The update has a lot of good new stuff in it! Love the updated UI. The new choices at the beginning are cool, I just wanna ask if that's just for fun or do they also impact the bf's personality?
Felt the edited script-not sure how I feel about it. I think it was made more jokey? Which I'm sorta "eh" on. The take on this premise at first was a bit more evenly distributed between the inherent ridiculousness of it and realistic responses to it actually happening. It's a fine line to toe though, and everyone's line is different, so I'm likely nit-picking.
I'm willing to wait a bit longer for the regular CG artist. I liked their art a lot, and they're what originally drew me in to the game.
I think I hit a bizarre bug.
Quick overview of my choices: flirting with Bell at the start, saved him, margaret died the first night, took Lu in. Shifted to trying to romance Lu the moment he arrives. Get the shell scene, which can lead into Lu dying and taking me to an actual ending (a not very happy one) with the affection choice.
Or, I can pick the say nothing option, wait out the timer, have the guide hurt, fight through, and then....nothing. It gets to the Guide saying "We need to start walking, we already lost enough time as it is." and bam, I'm brought to the main menu. Everything just stops there.
Yup! When you're in the weekly scheduler, roll your mouse over your character portrait. Your stats will appear on the left. Do the same thing with the Prince's portraits and you'll see their progress as well.
Just a quick question, since I suspect this may be the case...
For Serin's demo ending, is he supposed to be trained in light and wood? I have wind and wood come up as checks, have been training him in them a lot, but keep failing,
Planning to donate to the kickstarter soon, I liked what I saw so far of the game. Can't wait for MC's pic of the heir in some shady back alley to come back and kick her in the ass. A quick suggestion, you should put the kickstarter link on the page near the top, probably below the discord! Some people might only check the game page.
Bought this today, finished up Charlotte's and Sofia's routes-I have a quick q, does Sofia only have 3 CGs? Charlotte's has four, so I'm assuming every LI does.
(I'm enjoying the game so far! I just wanna give a proper review after I finish all the routes.)
Hi all~! I basically just made this topic to talk about what I liked about the game. I finished all the routes earlier today, and I'm really excited for episode 2!
The two characters I liked best were Saleos and Kali. These two seem to hit Lilim's issues and past the hardest in my opinion, so they stood out to me as more emotional than the other routes. Anzu was interesting but felt distant-which is obviously on purpose, it doesn't surprise me the character whose age is ????? is like that. She didn't BS when it came to Lilim's delusions, going straight for the jugular. I honestly can't wait to hear more about her as there's clearly a lot more going on under the surface. I don't like how she treats Kali though.
My favorite scenes were in Saleos' and Kali's routes, obviously. For Saleos specifically, it was the House scene. It's clear to me that being in a vampire House is more than just being a family, but given everything I couldn't help but view it as a touch romantic. Lilim, despite her obsession with Lucifer, considered for a moment following and staying with Saleos. He then popped that bubble like a idiot but it was a major character moment for Lilim which stood out to me. As a whole, I viewed this route as pretty sweet - Saleos and Lilim are both outsiders looking for honest companionship and they seem to provide each other that.
For Kali, her whole ending was wonderful to me. I won't go into too much but it was nice seeing Lilim and her break free of the things that bound them, even for a moment. The two are parallels with each other and it's interesting seeing how the two of them contrast. Kali and Lilim seem to better each other and I love that quality quite deeply. It's also pretty funny to me how Lilim is STILL so oblivious to how she feels about Saleos in his route but got it right away in Kali's lmao. Makes sense, given that Anzu's presence would speed that realization up quicker, but still. Also, Kali legit has the best design in the game imo-Anzu is not wrong when she says Kali is the prettiest thing she owns. I could look at her sprite for hours, she's so aesthetically pleasing. And cute!
Gaki is.....Gaki. His route was the funniest but also I never really like pervert characters. So he already had the deck stacked against him. Just...those endings....poor Lilim.
As to the game itself, ghosts seem to matter a lot. I have some theories, but I'll leave them to myself for now. :D I loved how the world was shown subtly! The player is not explained everything and there are a lot of moments in-game where there's a clear implication the characters get that the player does not. It leaves everything very mysterious and I want to get to know more.
So, thank you devs for this wonderful game! I enjoyed it a lot !
SPOILERS, YA'LL. DON'T READ UNLESS YOU PLAYED
Hahaha dang, I knew this game was dark but the Twins really hammered that point in. They were the scariest out of the bunch, imo. The other two bachelors I can kinda see them having genuine desire for a companion, but the Twins? Nope. That poor girl is going to be taxidermied sooner or later. She's their "pet" now.
The epilogue was super intriguing! Really scary too, if I'm understanding it right. How is there such a huge cover up for missing persons? Makes me think of all those classical stories where girls are offered as virgin sacrifices to the dragon. Just keep throwing girls at them and maybe they'll go away? lol I wonder what happens to the women who survive their possible 'life partners' bad ends...I can only imagine them either being forcefully inducted into the MCIP or killed by them later...
This world is really intriguing and fun, I hope you'll continue making more stories for this universe in some form or another!
I figured it out about an hour before you posted this, orz. But I really appreciate you replying! I found a few other surprising ends along the way, so it was a good thing I tried it again on my own. There are still a couple other endings I'm missing, but I haven't spent all that much time on getting them yet. Marco's ending was really nice, I'm glad I was able to see it! Thank you!
I need some help on Marco's route. I think I have all his clues (5 out of 5, right?). I've tried a) trusting him like a naive baby fawn, b) acting like a mall cop watching someone in a store, and c) aggressively hitting on him at every opportunity. And mixing those approaches together when it doesn't work. But still no dice. Any advice?
