(Just a note to start off with: This is the writer of Lads in Distress / Catfish Crew. I'm just using this account for our new VN studio to answer comments because I have added this account as a contributor to LiD project, and it's easier to monitor all our games under both CC and EG from this account alone.)

Hello! I must apologize for the 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.

First, to answer your question, yes the CGs were drawn by three artists in the team who stepped up to finish the CGs together after our initial CG artist left so that we could actually release the old version on time for NaNoRenO. As a result, there will definitely be art inconsistencies; sorry to hear you didn't like them! We have a new CG artist now responsible for the CGs of the full version, so hopefully that helps!

Secondly, thanks for your critique on the story! The script was extremely rushed because we wrote all 75k in the span of 30 days for NaNoRenO lol. Sorry to hear you didn't like the game, though! Those issues should be improved upon in the new version.

Thanks for the comment and interest anyway :)

Thank you for the compliments and kind words! Glad to hear you enjoyed the NaNoRenO version.

Yes, Nicholl is now a love interest you can choose to romance in the new demo of the full version that we just recently released! :) Currently, 2-3 of the scenes in his route is covered in the demo. Hope you enjoy romancing Nicholl if you end up trying the new demo!

Yes, we're aware some antivirus programs flag our game as a virus, even though all the AV softwares we have access to all report our game files as clean. If you are concerned and would rather not trust that it's a false positive, we totally understand. Sorry for the problems, but thank you for your interest in our game!

We are unlikely to do any translations for this game, sorry :( None of us are proficient enough in French for that, haha. Sorry for any disappointment!

Nicholl is now a love interest you can choose to romance in the new demo of the full version that we recently released! :) He'll get his own route in the full game as well. Hope you'll enjoy his route if you try the new demo!

If you happen to still have our old NaNoRenO version downloaded, I believe you can try to workaround that problem on Mac by right-clicking the game file and clicking Show Package Contents > Contents > MacOS > Lads in Distress game file again. It should also bring up the terminal, but the game should be able to run properly then. I believe this issue is because the NaNoRenO version of LiD isn't compatible with the new MacOS updates, but who knows ;o; Anyways, that's one workaround we found, but we would definitely suggest you to forget the old NaNoRenO version and just try our new demo for the full version which we recently uploaded for the full experience! Haha.

Thank you for your interest in LiD again! Really sorry about the late reply ;o;

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!

Thank you for playing the old NaNoRenO version! Happy to hear you liked Snow and Mer's second ending. :D

We now have a new demo for the full version released! There are 2-3 scenes for Nicholl's route in the demo, so hope you'll like him if you end up trying the demo!

Again, thank you for playing the old NaNoRenO version :)

HI NIKA <3

YES WE DID IT.  Special thanks to you. Oh, you should remind me to add you guys to the credits, haha. I couldn't have made it through the last week of working on the new demo if it weren't for you guys :")

Hello! Thanks for playing the demo and getting back to us with your feedback so quickly! ^_^

Thank you very much for the compliments and kind words! It particularly means a lot to me that you said the writing has improved. Turns out a year of constant VN writing can do a lot for your writing skill lol. Re-reading old script for NaNoRenO version seriously makes me cringe now, so I'm really happy that players feel that the writing in the new demo is better in comparison!

Haha, yes! I definitely had fun writing Ellis. Poor Charming has probably never been rejected before in her life, so I thought it would be fun when one of the princes don't actually want to marry her. ;)

Thank you! I'm so happy and relieved you like Nicholl's route. His is definitely the route I'm most nervous about, since it's new and so many fans have been waiting for a Nicholl route that I was worried the actual route would disappoint, haha.

Yay! Glad to hear you think Mer's route has improved and didn't disappoint you as a fan of the old route. We definitely put in a lot of work trying to rewrite and improve his route, as I believe many players previously criticized parts of Mer's route. The conversation about body swapping actually was in the NaNoRenO version as well! We just rewrote it to make it flow better and be more natural and, well, more hilarious so that it'd be more memorable. Thank you for the compliments! Really glad to hear you liked the new version of Mer's route.

Again, thank you for playing our new demo and for letting us know your thoughts! It means a lot to us :D Hopefully you'll enjoy the final full version too when the time comes!

Hello! Thank you for trying our new demo and for the detailed feedback! Don't worry, we don't mind long comments at all ^_^

We're glad you like the new demo! :D It particularly makes me happy that you felt the writing has improved. Crazy how much one year of constant VN writing can do, huh? Looking back on the old NaNoRenO script makes me cringe now lol.

Thank you for the compliments on the art! We were worried about whether fans would be unhappy about art inconsistency with the changes in the character artist position, so we're glad to hear you like the character/CG art and Ellis's new design!

Haha, glad to hear you like Tabitha! Yes, she can definitely be pushy, but that's why she's such great friends with Charming ;) Charming needs strong characters like Tabitha as friends or else she'd probably scare all of them away, lol. Yes, I'd say Ellis's social awkwardness is part of his charm. It's so different from all the princes Charming meets daily that she's drawn to it in a strange way. ;)

Ah, another Nicholl fan! Honestly, with how much fans were asking for a Nicholl route for NaNoRenO version, I was so nervous about whether this Nicholl route would let you guys down, so I'm glad to hear you like his route! As for the melon garden... It's actually a joke / meme that started in our public Discord server with fans, so blame them! I ended up making it canon because it fits and it's hilarious, so the melon garden will definitely come up more often in Nicholl's route!

Haha, Beau and Hood... Maybe in a distant future. xD No promises yet! Sorry for the disappointment though OTL We really didn't want to cut them, but we had no choice ;o;

The full game will indeed continue to be free! So no worries about that :D After all, we're using a lot of CC-NC background resources, so we can't make the game commercial even if we wanted to, unless we want to commission full set of original backgrounds lol.

Anyways, thank you again for playing our demo and letting us know your thoughts! ^_^
