I've been playing the game for a while and although the music, art and voice acting is lovely, i can't seem to get into the story and the characters.
It feels way too rushed. I wish you would give the beginning some time to build up. Perhaps start the story a few days before the travel to get to know the main character first.
I don't quite understand why she would only be told on the day that she's to be married off - and to the king especially! Why isn't she asking more questions? Why would the family not prepare her beforehand? Let her pack her own things?
The writing itself bothers me. Not only does it have a constant feel of being rushed, but all the conversations feel immature and unnecessarily hostile and cringy at times.
She seems to quickly accept her fate of being married off, but then she's running around like a child when she has to ride the centaur. The bachelors talk to each other like they all have internal quarrels although they've only recently met each other. Why does everyone seem to hate each other? Why is everyone so rude and direct without explanation?
An example is why would an esteemed knight that's seen the harshness of battle remind a girl not to be shy, that she can eat like a pig?
I wouldn't change the story of the world cause the world itself seems interesting and the story is nice. Just the conversational writing. Perhaps rethinking their personalities to seem a bit more mature would make the game overall more enjoyable for me if i was to buy it in the future - after all, this is a visual novel. The writing is the main element.
