i've been eyeing this for quite some time now, and it was better than i expected! you guys have done such an amazing job, and thank you so much for bringing this over to the English audience c:
the art and animations were downright beautiful (need i say more) and the world built around the characters was so fascinating that it's easy to get hooked! things like the magic system, the creatures (i mean... vampires), the occupations, the baths-- the writing and character reactions make everything seem so natural and seamless that you feel like you fit right in after starting the game. it's not overwhelming and even becomes more intriguing as the game goes on. the journal was also super useful for this! (oh, and the first class assholes bit? that was hysterical) and speaking of characters...
Renan and Ilyes, i love you everyone is so charming and their interactions with each other are super fun. the test/assessment scene and the one where Rave goes with "call him the runt" are my absolute favorites, i love these boys. Rave is the epitome of do no harm but take no shit and i really like the unique moments he has with everyone else (like being soft to Hyde aaahh).
keeping in mind that this is just a demo, i'll just quickly breeze over the few technical stuff i noticed (the points about the English translation has already been stated, so i won't touch on that): the menu/UI has a good aesthetic but the UI with narration (and scrolling background) has a different font and font size compared to the rest so it feels a bit out of place and inconsistent. there's also a small thing where even if Renan is your roommate, Rave (when talking about choosing a study... friend) still asks about "study[ing] with my roommate" so maybe a check at that part can be done? the music was good at being atmospheric; i'm guessing the times when it goes completely silent are placeholders for future pieces? it's good for scenes to have music that matches the mood so i'll be waiting for that!
i don't have a lot of predictions about where the story might go, but i'm really curious about the roommate vs study assistant/partner choices; it suggests that we can have two different people if we wanted, which means a lot of possible branches (b
oyA as a route and boyB as the disapproving/supportive roommate? cough cough) and i wonder if it'll have any influence on future choices or endings. hmm. anyway! i can't wait to know more about this world and these characters, and you can bet i'll give my support to the kickstarter! <3
