Played the demo a few times now and man, is it a joy. It already feels very romantic.
I love Marion's inner voice and I'm very excited to experience the world's events through her eyes. Her clever wit and sense of humour is fun and it's believable that others would fall for her.
I always like to see strong female characters who aren't written as though their emotions signal weakness (see the first scene she has alone with John near the river). Humanity does not belie badassery.
Each LI seems very distinctive so far. I had a hard time picking a favourite. Looking forward to uncovering the hidden depths of the characters as the game progresses. I expect each will be quite nuanced.
Art is beautiful. The style is lovely and clean and the character design is little more mature than other otome games I've played, particularly Eastern ones. It's a welcome change. My favourite aspect is the wonderful facial expressions. I found myself scrolling back to check out the looks on each character's face throughout different scenes! The artist did an amazing job.
Music choices are good and set the tone well.
Good luck with the rest of development! I can't wait to meet the Nottingham LIs. Particularly excited for Lord Geoffrey.
