All I have to say is… Amen! You put what I was thinking in a better way than what I would do.

1st: Honestly none… Not everything needs to be change.
2nd: But, added… There are many things, but one of them is on the 3rd question… So I can’t say for certain due to not knowing the direction of the path laid upon us. My thing that I like more in writing is the feeling of comfort conveyed in the readers. Cuddles mostly, that even when is read you can somewhat feel that.
3rd: For me, honestly, versatility is appreciated. In this case, I would like both to be frank. But if I had to choose… I do not know.
You are a poet, my friend. (I know… We aren’t actually friends.) As far from how I review VN’s this one… Doesn’t need a complicated one. So I will speak my mind a bit.
The story is interesting, and finally I understand why Isekai was included in the tags. They lived in a world that had magic… something not normal for us, but for them. After that, they traveled to another one. That’s all I will say.
The starting of the story is intriguing, the character or Main character. It is revealed slowly to a good rhythm, nothing feels rushed. For the other Characters, the bovine and the woven, both are interesting dynamic. I hope that the relation that blooms is slow, and comforting.
But please, ArgonSol if you are reading. Do not try to please everyone. Keep the essence of the ground you build up. Do not change completely the path that you want for other people. But, keep in mind constructive criticism, and help from others.
I know, and thank you for clarifying that. But, the game is anything but realistic… to some extent. There are realistic parts of it, but I will say that realism. Doesn’t apply to the whole story. Anyway, I understand that for the terms of their relations from their endings. Not everyone has a path already build. We follow the unknown in the world, so I can accept that the endings are bittersweet.
Life is full of unknown paths that we have to explore. And not all of them end in a happy and loving relations. Some lead to problems with family, others lead to fights, even death. For that, I do appreciate that their relations aren’t fully developed after their travels. And so… that is my point of view in this case.
Okay! It reminds me of some of the books I read about the same kind of life. Horny furries trying to get the MC laid, MC being the most “attractive” character, etc. Anyway…
For a first chapter, it does pack a lot of content. I have to say that Aiden’s route is touching. I got the perfect route. (Always loyal to the one I pick, no side stuff, no getting laid by others, etc.) I love how well build is the little bubble the academy has. It is enough to work the story. About misspelling… little here… little there… but does not distract. I can tolerate it.
The day progression is slow, and I enjoy that the days are longer and not faster. The speed of which both MC and Aiden fall for each other is reasonable. There is more personal connection is not rushed like in many VN’s. But it is true that the days are only 3 according to that they are going a little too fast, but I can get pass that.
Aiden is an interesting character and to tell the truth. It bought a smile on me when MC accepted Aiden even if he had “double personality”. He accepts him the way he is. (Besides the benefits we discover after knowing about that “double personality”. Some people will know what I’m talking about.)
Overall: It’s pretty good! I do recommend giving it a try.
Which one? The one that he stays or the one that he leaves? I can’t say it any less vague, or I will spoil the ending a bit.
I have seen the one where he stays, the one that he leaves, but not the other one that people call… Too far away. I guess that would be the worst ending.
I do not know why, but all “good” endings, leave the feeling of bittersweet.
This VN, just… wow. All I can say is that I’m left wounded by reading it. It is so bittersweet, and beautiful. Cedric really hurt me deep. I felt the pain of Kieran while reading the route.
Besides that, the writing was on point. But I got lost, there was a problem with the flow of the story, but passing that… I’m just… Pained by it.
About that disclaimer…
“This VN is a combination of comic/manga and writing styles. So, the VN structure is different from the other normal VN.
If you are the kind of reader that likes to read visual novels that doesn’t have awkward moments, / weird script / or anything that makes you feel “edgyness” is too much.”
Man I’m laughing from the awkwardness, I feel like I’m watching some kind of comedy anime. It feels so… like a comedy done for a TV show, but it hits the spot for me. I’m enjoying this by just finishing the prologue and starting the first chapter.
The awkwardness is literally making it harder to read for me. But, because it’s making me laugh or really take a few seconds to let it sink in.
Chapter 4: Since when cuteness is considered a part of a sexuality? I understand what the narrator is trying to tell, but… I never thought about something or someone cute in a sexual manner. Now this just me, maybe is sexual for others. Whatever…
Life changing… So this story is told from whom? The narrator or The Main Character/Human/Person who we can change the name of?
This is going to make me more confused.
Chapter 5: Wow… well hidden. It was intense… From fun and happy to hectic and stressful. It was rather extremely fast for me. I’m dumbfounded, honestly… after MC and Draveyar problem… It hurts a bit.
Behind on 1.0…
Man, I’m enjoying the journey, and my suspicions were correct.
Coming back to other thing…
I’m happy that you are still working in it. Even if, like you said because of your “lazy butt”.
When you say the first chapter, do you mean Sam with his starting of problems in his head, or do you mean for a specific route?
Moving aside, the question. I also had problems with it when I first read it, though now I have some new kind of immunity for the depictions on The Smoke Room. But I will not lie, I still feel like there are eyes watching me while I sleep. Even though my room does not have windows… and natural light.
Interesting… I will check that soon… I just finished reading Mark’s route and well…
I see more and more of what is going on. Still, I really have no idea of what is going on other than:
Possible spoilers Ahead!.
Everyone that we see as the “main” cast are childhood friends, or just known to us as the memories are still absent.
They know each other too much, but try to hide it.
(not really a point but…) Walter(MC) truly can’t see the multiple hints, that they’re hiding something.
I guess for me, it did not affect me at all… I guess reading the other projects of The Echo Project team, made it less difficult for me to take it in.
Still, I do feel that feeling of about to trow up.
I also feel bad for him after knowing his past.
Question to anyone…
Did the original content that was a couple of months back changed?
To explain why I am asking…
I recently read Mr. Parker’s and Anders’ routes, noticing differences in them.
Lars route is the same, though new changes to the content.
Walter and, if you have read Herbert, are twin brothers, right?
But after reading Mr. Parker’s and Anders/Byron routes, there it seems to be brothers? I do not know exactly, just asking. But on Lars route Walter seems to be Herbert but now is a different person due to memory lost.
More like theory crafting per see, but I’m confused. Just changes from timeline to timeline from what I see. Like there is something more than memory lost, like Walter and Herbert are the same person, but it depends on the route.
Like I said, I’m just theory crafting here, so…
(Sorry if anything I wrote doesn’t make sense, I… It still a lot to take in after reading Anders/Byron route and episode)
After checking a bit, maybe? We do gain something when taking to him in some routes. I do not know if he will be Dateable, but I hope we can at least become friends with him. He does need some friends.
You are a savior! I was wondering about my choices, and you had the answers all along. I was trying to have a better conclusion on Shoichi’s route. Thank you for this information.
Also, you made my day by having that information. I was sad that Shoichi never talked with her mother. And I was locked out in the other route due to a single choice.
I had followed the route in the right direction all the time but one choice made it imposible.
I would say to give it a try and get back to it. You have a new perspective now. Something that you might have liked might show now as a problem or who knows… It might be better than before. So far I have enjoyed the one route I had chosen.
But the final answer and the choice is yours to take.
Well, for what I have been seeing from rausmutt he seems to have a full comic series. It has a lot of lore, so you might want to check on his Patreon for his comics.
For the third question: According to what the VN says, shelter the building absorbs the mana that is created by them to power its systems. That’s why they get what is known as the Shelter sickness.
Other than that, there seems to be mana created by anyone, and it gets to stay in the atmosphere what I can guess is that, yes, mana seems to be more abundant on other places.
He-he… I did not expect this VN to have the kind of situations I saw.
Just to evade spoilers… in one of the scenes, MC is trying to escape from someone…
I did not expect to see a “relief” option after a stressful encounter, I’m laughing too much for this little snip. I haven’t played too much but just making me have a good laugh, I can see that this will be a really fun ride.
I would like to say that you guys did a perfect job in completing Tatsuki’s route. I have seen the original route and for sure this one brings a better closure to the route compared to the original. Tatsuki’s problem was better taken with being a problem and a friend, having to worry about it instead of just being part of his life.
Also, he is a bit less horny, but still he asks for it first instead of forcing Hiroyuki into it. And I did not expect Hiroyuki’s to change on one of the scenes. Furthermore, the ending was a better one in my opinion. Bringing a good memory and a heart fell moment with the both of them. I was enjoying a bit more of this story of his. I hope you guys can bring a better ending with Torahiko, I guess he is the more affected in these relationships compared to the others.
Also, I’m wondering what will happen on Kounosuke’s route once it is done. Likewise, I wonder about Juuichi’s route, and shin’s route. Both of them had an interesting one in the original. Still, I hope these routes get a better closure.
My, My! I see why someone did not like the VN… The phasing is fast. Yes, A bit too fast. But I can tell that it has some work in it. vkywrufwe you might want to write the story first on a document, then separate it in a VN format, like if it was a Script of a play. Then have someone read it for you… If you have no CG or art to follow in a scene, try to give a detailed description, while slowly building to it.
Also, try to give descriptions on some items a little more detail. Mostly try to create a solid stage in someone mind. Think of asking, yourself, how much the reader can see by getting a description. And do remember to give a description of the place they are… for example: During the tavern scene, they are kinda talking to each other and getting frisky.
But, there is no idea where they are and if it is in front of anyone. I would guess the dragon can have a little more decency on public… or not it depends, as I know little about the character, so I can’t say. Furthermore, if the dragon is a Horny Beast, that is normal in this world, let us know. It can save a little the setup of both MC and Cid.
For the phasing a tip I can give, is give them time to know each other… It can be in the same day and get frisky, but make the day last. Don’t give a vague adventure, show little meaning less talk, sometimes is just the little things that can make a scene more enjoyable. Talk about little interests, their travels, adventures, embarrassing encounters, or traumatic events, create a story behind them to make them interesting.
Also reveal the characters slowly… or you will run your head out of ideas. And if you have too many, write them down to use in the future. On real life, we do not pay attention to the little things on our day-to-day life, unless it is with someone we like or want to know. MC can become more perceptive or less… He will remember the little things if he is writing from a fond memory or even a traumatic one.
I hope this helps you a bit on it. It might be a prototype, but do give it an ending. Prototypes on Development can also be good to tell how much you still need to think before going for the big things. (I know that a bit too well…)
My apologies of the code name. And yes, about almost trowing up it happened around 20 times while reading… The description of each scene was a bit too much. Now for the little time I have been playing this new VN, it is an interesting situation, also a bit of comedy here and there, I wasn’t expecting it too soon though… But I will come later with my full opinion once I finish.
Alright now this is my next one on my list to read. For you Agentwolf07 Redacted. Anyway, I have recently read one gore VN. A Hellish Journey. It did get me almost to trow up, just by reading the descriptions of the scene.
I know there is a warning on this, so… It will be my fault. (I hope I don’t get the feeling of trowing up again… Not even Doom does that to me.) Aside from that, I was giving it some time to read, I hope it is as good as I read in the comments. I will review it later since I feel like this VN is going to be a wild ride… sigh (I need to prepare in case I do trow up)
Alright… There is too much to ask and few will get an answer. I took a little time to read, and I can say… Is this story done in a mater of loosing memory from the main character’s perspective? Or is it like a reborn in a new world?
That is what I believe bringmethefurries was wondering… but I understand on his perspective that there are more questions than answers. But to be fair we can only get the answers from the story not the developer. I know there is something that will be answered by the story, and that’s what VN’s are based on. I have read multiple VN’s and many of them still hold the mystery for a good time.
The other… MC reacting to the situation in a very calm demeanor. Like he knows where he is, yet he doesn’t remember. He doesn’t panic, but tries to pressure for an answer yet almost none get answered. For this, I can say the speed of the situation is a faster and there is less thinking coming from MC. He seems less affected than normally it lets to be.
He might be coping, but still for us readers there is a vast contrast on showing if he is ok or not in the situation. And here it shows little thinking of the situation. He is really calm, almost frightened more so. But, to defend to the person dealing with the writing. There are multiple ways a person can react to a situation, and depending on the experiences it had it can be calm, or it can be outright an outburst of emotions.
Now. This is what I think how this starter holds up. The story how it starts feels like the person who we know as MC (The main character, Reese) was killed. Yet it doesn’t seem that way… This is one of the first points I found confusing. Void can be linked as dead, but after taking a lesson with Spark I can see the other meaning, the mind in a blank state. Void of anything.
We know there is more to the world, since we get the feel of the fantasy world at some point. Magic or a similar force to it exist in this world. The story is interesting it hooked me for a while, where I lost it was in the phasing of the scenarios. They feel rushed but with enough to read and understand the situation… But there is a lack of something always popping up here and there.
This feeling of lack, lack of something, holds the story back. Back enough to make me wonder what is missing. Yet I do not have a full answer to it. I feel is in writing, but it could be the lack of construction on the scenarios… or it could be the lack of speed in scenarios feeling like a flash memory instead of a more meaningful moment.
As for the story as a whole right now… It can hold its ground. I know there is more to see and do want to know what is in store for the next build.
I do hope you can get through this rough time you are having, Krow. Many of us happened to have those moments of grief, take your time and work slowly to your goal. Just don’t burn your self by trying to please the public first. Take care for what it is trully important at this moment.
So let me start with something different now… Normally I would do some recounting of the whole story. But, is a bad idea since there is too much effort put in here that I do not want to spoil too much stuff. Normally I would do this: I mostly try to review per route but, I know there is just too much to cover it. So this time I’m going to do some key timings that I enjoyed while playing. After that I will review per department: Audio, Narration/writing, Art, and finally eye candy~. I know the game isn’t finished!
Before, I start doing a full review. Here is what I can say for anyone looking for a little push to start reading: If you can stand gore imagery and descriptions, go for it. It is more intense sometimes than Doom… and that is saying something. It is brutal sometimes. But, ignoring all gore. It does stand by a strong story and likable characters, only when they don’t go all demonic and chaotic full gore. Besides, their adventure is a fun one. I had a good deal of laughter, too many that I got my family members asking me if I was alright. I was enjoying the little talks and teasing to each other. It has a good atmosphere, and they focus on personality between them. I was immersed in the story since it does play a lot of realism in how a fantasy world would look like. If, it was taken realistically in the sense of fighting.
So first let’s go for personality:
Per character personality:
Akai, the main character, a lonely wolf: He is a mercenary, and earned a title for killing people in a certain way. I will save some info. He fights a lone, but with the new people he meets he gets a full 180 happening to him becoming a caring wolf. But, when meeting with our choices to date aka his future fellow demons… He becomes a Horny wolf if you want to make him. Also, he really did live by solitude sometimes. According to the time of the last build, he has lost 4 dear people he was trusting and considered family. Two of them were his family, the other 2 were fellow mercenary that help him.
Tchort, the ??????: This character is a prideful one. He enjoys torture and killing. And that is his good side. His altered personality or true demon form is a killing machine and is cold in the way he kills. He is a psychopath.
Red, the croc: This guy is a tsundere, but not the typical tsundere. He is stubborn and shows he doesn’t care for you… at first. If you interact with him more, it has a sweet spot for you. I choose him first. I enjoyed his interactions he will try to act all tough, but he actually is tough. But feelings are hard to hide. He cares for you if you try to break the barrier that he uses.
His alter personality or true demon form is a berserk fighter, and oh boy! Do not mess with him! He is dangerous~. Even if you do get him to try it with you, he will still try to do some damage to you. He still loses his temper so easily that he could destroy you. And he is brutal, all right. I almost puked after imagining the scenes during one of Akai’s nightmares. This scene was Red’s nightmare of distrust… and was agonizingly brutal.
Drago, the dragon: Drago is a teasing one. He loves to tease a lot. Also, he hates that people treat him all high and mighty due to him been a dragon. Additionally, he really is a lustful dragon if you meet him alone. In addition, he has some sense of high decency, if you can say that… His demon form or alter personality is an Eater of people… He can eat people whole. Also, he is a scary form to mess when he loses his control over that form.
Thayne, the bull: A timid yet social bull. He is more intelligent than the others. Knowing him, he has saved Akai so many times, and helped cool down his own friends when they become demon form and lose control. As an ally, he does talk a lot, and he is social once you get to know him. He will be there to guide you in the hard times. I have yet to see him lose his temper.
Havelock, the orca: A pirate of the sea. He does take care of his tripulation. To the point of sometimes comforting Akai when he is down. The alter personality of this orca is difficult for me to identify when he does go berserk. But, he does to try to liquid a certain character for his actions, and eventually he does somewhat succeed.
There is more, but for now is barely enough to make me understand the new followers.
Now let’s review per department.
Audio: On the spot, even the eerie scenes became stronger to the point of sending chills to my body. Not only for those scenes. Also, the battles were good and enjoyable, I had imagined some… but sometimes it was too much. >.<
Narration/writing: Story: It is strong and well-placed. I saw life in this world. And their people also were living beings, not just some random npc taking. All of them had their own lives. Characters: All of them are a good bunch, I had many fun experiences with them and how they interacted with each other.
One problem… There are some inconsistencies when following some paths. And informed one of them on the recent update devlog. Also, there were some orthography problems I noticed, but sometimes they made the serious moments more fun. I’m not going to lie, yes it ruins the scene, but man some of them are common. And yes, even I do have those issues. Actually, I have a habit of reading a lot of times over. But some common mistakes still pass without me knowing.
Art: Although is rough on some aspect, it does have a charm on it. It is constant and enjoyable to look at. As for the scenes, wow do they hold up even when is on weird angles. As for the gore… well, I’m happy that there is not too much of it. Or I would have a hard time eating while I was reading this VN. The eerie parts were spot on. I had some chills running down me.
Eye candy: There is a lot. And oh boy~. Did I enjoy the ones on my path? Yes. But, since it is shared with narration, for me, they feel a bit short. I do not mean the scenes, I mean the narration of the scene. But it is probably my thing. Anyway… They are steamy~ and enjoyable to read with the accompanied art. And Red as my to go for… he is a handful yet unexpected one to get into to. I dare to say that I had fun with him… Ye, lads! I’m crazy for this croc~!
Hey BigBuffDemonBoi, I found a small inconsistency check: Tchort saying we took care of Drago’s needs… while not true since we got interrupted by Thayne. He said later, but I never got in a scene with him since I played… This scene is on the last update, I thought it would be better if I let you know about it.
Same here, I just finished reading and reviewing the whole game. And do wish he can still work on it. It was a new warming experience. I also became a fan of his work. I recently read Steadfast,other work from Drakes, and it does play on someone’s hearth. Or I guess it played with my hearth.
Actually, I’m enjoying it. I’m according to the number of the build… let’s say… Build 1.2: “A Dragon’s Story and his Darkest Secret”.
For now, I will say is a fresh air in something I was working on… Basically showing the gray side of evil. Since evil cant be actually completely define. This one works on the grey side, not the black and white we somewhat see in other games.
Yes, im building a fantasy world too… I have been inspired by many things, and now even this shows some of the same examples I was working with. Once I finish reading, I would like to ask the Dev if he is fine with me using some of the content for inspiration.
Also, if you can’t stop thinking about it, it means that is fantastic for you. Since not every game tents to stay on someone’s mind. A good game will be remembered and even used as an example of something.
So… This is a wonderful game and for once, I got the feeling I was in a warm embrace~. Now the feeling I will explain later but for now, let’s give something to read to the ones that still searching for an opinion before playing. Also, I would like to apologize for the sheer amount of reading I’m leaving here. I got lost in writing yet I feel like got it summarized as much as possible.
I had an astounding ride of a change of worlds. For once, this one left me feeling like in clouds and a warm embrace. I can say that I have been reading many VN’s probably around… 40?! Wow… Ok, I’m addicted to VN’s, I have to admit it. But none of them left me feeling this strange warmth after reading it. As for the story and plot… well there is enough to have a fun talk. But I have to admit that it feels too fast to have a… Beast man? Furry? Sorry, I can’t distinguish this right now. Still, I had a big dumb smile while enjoying the routes.
Question to anyone: are furries, Beast mans? or I’m in the wrong here? I can’t find the difference since I have seen many concepts behind this world of… furries on VN’s. I do not know if I’m addressing them right…
There are spoilers after this! Be ready,there are long lines of text.
First, I have to do this every time. I do try to honestly say my opinions while trying to leave a positive review. I’m by no means an expert in writing or storytelling, or even English since it is my second language. But first impressions are still a good point of view and a place to see what attracts some people. The current review is done on Build: 1.081
Also, I judge mostly on the story and characters themselves but not on their looks. Which is easy for me. But I know many go for the other stuff…
This is how I do this: I mostly try to review per route but, since it is just starting, I kinda feel bad since it is short. And will update for any content that gets added. After that I will review per department: Audio, Narration/writing, Art, and finally eye candy~. I know the game isn’t finished!
Before the routes: Oh! It feels like months passed by so, By not remembering some things is worrying me right now. I can recall the stories on some VN’s but this one did not get me as I expected… I had to do a little reading of my brainstorming notes to refresh my memory. Not a good thing not to be able to remember the start of the journey. Our character is an interesting one we know him… as a man that lost most of his family already.
His father disappeared and his mother died. I wasn’t expecting a full tragic start at all. We know that this character later turns into a fun person to hang out with. Anyway stopping with my non-important inner monologue here. The world of the character’s origin and the new world that we get transported was interesting… to say at least. I choose a tea to calm MC(Main Character) down. And he drifts to sleep and wakes up in a similar world he was in, but in this case, there are… Beast men? Furries! … Ok… This one is going to be troublesome. Anyway… MC wakes up to a Furry person. He walks and talks is a tiger and we see MC punch him to see if he is in a dream. This part was hard to remember.
We get to know the main cast and our choices to date. At this time we see 3 available to get with. The first one we get to know is the tiger, Gran. What I got from him was: “He is an energetic but, a worry gentle guy… sometimes a teasing one too. Also a little overprotective? Or is he…” Gran took us out to eat something after waking up in this new world. Also, he noticed we had an Orb. These orbs are tools that let us use their power in some way. They are a little unknown thing for us at the moment. When we arrive at a dining place, we get to meet one of Gran’s friends Dave. The second option: Dave is a dragon… or well it seems to be. This is what I got from how he is: “A change of air! He is timid yet, he has a sense of authority, but not to the point of being an adult. He allows you to choose decisions, and he wants you to be the one choosing what to do. With a warming heart, he invites you in.”. But when we meet him we are seen as some dangerous person. MC doesn’t understand why but he worries since he is an Orb user.
After a while, we get to go to a Police Station (PD). There we meet some characters but the main one that we got to focus on was the Chief of the Department, Chief Norman, he is a bear… But, it took me a long time to figure it out. I honestly thought that he was a different kind of breed of dog. He seemed more dog-like to me than to a bear. Norman is our third and last option at the moment. This is what I got from him, how he truly is: “He is authority, sometimes he acts before knowing about it. He might be a bit reserved, and sometimes timid. But his heart truly gives a wonderful warmth. Caring like a father yet more closely than any other.”.
-I’ll cut short here so when the new characters that need to be added get their day I can add more to explain how we meet them. And this is how we meet our characters, or well, our future boyfriends.
Gran’s Route: Gran is 25, He looks old and shows a sense of maturity and a sense of authority in his job after all he is a police officer. My time with him even if it was for a day was fun! Enjoyed the time with him he made me laugh so many times, and other times make me worried. He doesn’t know that he sometimes acts badly I can say the same thing that MC said “A good, and charming goof”. He is fun to hang with, more than expected. Also… He teased MC to get his number…
Dream introduction: The dream we get with Gran is one full of lust. Gran having a sense of overpowering MC gave him a steamy press of each other’s bodies. But, ending with a comforting and soft kiss.
Dave’s Route: Dave… I did not get too much while playing with him, what I mean is that I did not get his age at all. He seems like a teenager since he was dressed up in a typical University US style of clothing. Dave seems more mature than Gran. Since he gave me Gran’s number because he knew Gran would tease me to get it. He also knew our intentions of helping him… he asked why we wanted to help him instead of staying in the PD. He seems shameless to show his body to MC since he gets to start undressing in the same room as him too. I got the feeling he is sensitive sometimes. Also, we know he is into us.
Dream introduction: The dream we get with Dave is one with a sense of… dreed and darkness… loneliness. But, with a warming touch. Dave gives MC to choose, to be in control. But also gives us the sense of security and warmth MC needed. Dave sensed that MC was scared and asked not to be scared of him. Dave let MC do the first move. With a hand on Dave’s chest and a hand on his cheek, MC closes his eyes and delivers a kiss. Sadly I do not get what kind of kiss was.
Chief Norman’s Route: Norman is 37, He is a whole different thing. Norman is interested in MC but he is too timid to show it. MC knows it but doesn’t want to make him uncomfortable. MC’s impressions of Norman are a bit weird. He sensed authority coming from Norman but also, solitude, and an overpowering feeling of intimidation. During his route this was one of the things I had in my mind: “What I think is that he is not that bad or well he doesn’t mean to become a little intimidating is probably how he acts in his office. Maybe is he doing it without realizing.”.
MC clearly wants to talk to Norman, but he says to speak to Doc, MC thinks “What if I want to talk to you instead…?”. Clearly showing interest. Also during one time it seems this thing pops almost every time I read a VN the age gap thing. Is even here! I honestly did not expect it. Is this normal? I mean in a sense of a young person wanting to date someone older? Is this some kind of taboo?
Dream Introduction: We are in a cabin with clothes drenched. It is raining outside. Norman enters and offers to cover with blankets and a cup of hot chocolate. Norman was wearing a teen’s outdoor-style clothing. What I can get from the scene was that we were freezing from the cold so we get closer to a fireplace, with Norman. He asked us to sit on his lap, cuddling with MC and snuggling closer to MC with kisses on the neck. The last kiss is on the lips and is a warm tender kiss.
After reading everything the one ending dream that got me feeling in the clouds was Norman’s route. I was feeling the whole scenario I felt like I was living in that place at that moment. Creating and imagining the whole scenario was so soothing and warming. I was about to fall asleep from reading since it was at night. I did sleep with that feeling and it was wonderful.
I might be a sucker for bears now that I think about it~.
All right now is time to go to the Department Review.
Audio: Music is a form of art and I know when there are feelings in a song, the intro/main menu song is a masterpiece for the whole game. It fit the whole scenario and feelings that this project tries to convey. Warm, slow, and passionate. At the moment I have no complaints about music since they fit exceptionally well.
Narration/Writing: Although I understand grammar is not my forte I’m not reviewing grammar. I’m reviewing the story itself and its characters. So here is something I can say. I was immersed. I feel like I was MC for some moments. Other times the full charm of the characters showed in and shinned like a true person. A feeling of connection was created.
Art: This art is charming! I’m in love with this style. And the little but noticeable blink on every character is a plus for me. It looks like a kind of comic inside of the gallery and I love the style.
Eye-candy: Since the game is starting there is none.
Extra: I’m adding this since now I started creating a brainstorm every time I want to review a VN and sometimes I get some of my thoughts in it. You can judge me for this I don’t mind at all. I think this will show some of the things that get to my head. And this one was… surprising and kinda embarrassing so enjoy. And for the interested, my choice of the perfect partner, in this case, would be Norman… Unless we get the wolf route on the next update.
“Hahaha! Okay, so this is going to be a fun ride I can tell for the stupidity of a simple question. HE asked where is here, answering the room, not the location.”
“We returned with the lion to his apartment to take a shower and finally clean ourselves, though it seem sad that I did not stay. I understand that he might want to but we still have no idea to who go for it. I’m debating with Dave or the wolf.”
“Even after that, we learn that the lion and Gran are overprotective. Hehe, Norman is on me too… Man does everyone try to hit him or what.”
“Gran caught me by surprise while opening the infirmary door. I almost fell over but talk about cliche here hehe~.” “Gran is now our supervisor. We applied for an internship. Is going to be a handful one hehe~.”
“Definitively got the tiger charmed for me “I’m happy that it’s you…” I see no regrets in saying that. All right, so patrol time also Gran seems to be playing with us now and then. Cheeky one~. Glad he is having fun, with me around. Also… a lot of cheekiness coming from this guy.”
“Actually since starting I’m sure I would have noticed since I been brainstorming here. I know Gran has a soft spot for Lil ol me, so he really wants to be by my side , heh. I’m happy with this turn of events but… I hope I’m not left hanging since… I know how the developer took this as a hobby project. sigh why do good projects sometimes end up in a bad spot?”
“OH! Dave knows that we are after him.”
“Dave got a bit ahead… is he shameless or did he forget we are here?”
“Sam noticed that Dave’s behavior changed and she knows that he kinda likes him in some way or another. And MC revealed a card without knowing it! Dave on the other hand was a little sad knowing that MC was searching for his father’s cooking classes. And flattery starts to appear without MC noticing. Also, the poor dragon mind seems to see us in an apron and gave him an awed face while looking at us, I guess he likes what he sees.”
“Changing subject we go to the internship this time though… we get the intimidating part of Norman. But, what I think is that he is not that bad or well he doesn’t mean to become a little intimidating is probably how he acts in his office. Maybe is he doing it without realizing it?”
“Haha, Norman looks funny with an officer hat~.”
“I know cheesy stuff when I see it but this was way too cheesy… stretching a hand back of the pillow to the character’s direction is a classic move. I have to admit cute in this world yes but… because of… you know… their bodies of animals? I mean… Yes, I have been doing reviews on furry visual novels but… I somehow look at them in the way of a human instead of a creature… if that makes sense?”
“I guess I do not care for the superficial I care for the internal part of the characters. Is hard for me to explain but I do not feel like their bodies are what get me attracted to them… I’m more intrigued I guess because it is a Gay, Novel… something that I have yet to experience.”
“Yeah, I’m a lone wolf if I was a fersona… furry? and existed in the world of these characters. Anyway…”
“Wait… so Damon is helping on setting up? What is going on? Do they know my intentions of getting close to Norman? Or does Norman even think about it? I believe we got set up?”
“Let me insist on the age thing. 37… well I can see why he was somewhat hesitant but… It seems we don’t mind the age gap. Heh~ I guess is normal to do in this novel huh!”
“Wow, he is a bear all right. Using a blanket and cuddling him close to the fire. Yep! This one is my favorite so far. Cuddles and snuggles with kisses… but in the neck. Even imagining it feels soothing.”
I’m sorry if this becomes a rude answer. Meanwhile, the game is actually really good we know that it is a hobby project. Meaning that he will work in this VN when he feels like it.
I understand the feeling to want an update already after comparing dates since the last update. But he might have been having problems or something in IRL, I do not know anything besides that it is a hobby project. So be patient, soon we will get something at least. And if the project no longer gets updates, we can create our own stories just from this, as a base.
Probably because it was a little rude? People normally don’t read the important stuff, even I first thought it was finish. Also, yes, you did answer. And no, I wasn’t the one who gave you a minus.
I actually wonder why he did that too.
Also, development log doesn’t say if it is done or not. Neither on the start of the description of the game.
Unless is Echo and Adastra which are the only projects that I know are finish.
Alright, this looks interesting… I will give it a go. I do reviews, so I will take my time to see where this story is. Likewise, I know the position of this VN and I do wish to provide some insight by the current content in it. Not only that, but I do hope you Drakes can continue on this passion project as a full time thing one day. I will be honest but open-minded.
update: I have been reading and to say that I have enjoyed the journey so far is an understatement. I will need more time to organize on this one. A lot of good stuff! I have a brainstorm of 6 pages and I can’t get enough of it. If you are reading this, Give. It. A. Try. I cannot stress this enough, this is a hidden gem! I will do my review once I have organized my thoughts.
Small update 05/06/2022: It is late but, I finally finished reading all routes now it’s time to take it and review it. I should be done by today, tomorrow or a later date. Right now, I feel in the clouds~. Soon I will explain why. A wonderful feeling~
