Yes, thanks!

Congrats on the music - I'm so jealous I can't do that myself! I'm also making a game right now but I'll have to buy music or hire someone.

And you shouldn't worry that much about updates taking time. Honestly, I've rarely seen a game page updated so often with news about progress and stuff.

I like both of them, but I guess I have a sligh preference for the second one!

Now I'm curious, are you the composer too, or does someone make the music for you?


Oh, unrelated, but I forgot to ask before. Will it be a commercial game when completed, or will it remain free?

No problem! As I said, it won't prevent people from playing since the regular download works fine, but it's convenient for people who follow a lot of games and don't always have time to check every single one of them for updated. If you open your launcher and see it in the updates queue, you know there's new content, more likely.

(1 edit)

I haven't played myself yet, but discovered the game in a let's play. It looks so nice - I really did the retro aesthetics, and the characters are compelling so far. I believe I've seen almost everything during the let's play, so I'll wait for the next update to play by myself, though.

Oh by the way, I wanted to download it using the downloadable itch launcher to keep it automatically updated, but it doesn't seem to work. Instead of the install option in the lower part of the screen I have an "open page" option to open it in a browser. And if I use the itch launcher to open the regular download button, it says: "No compatible uploads were found for this title". 

The download works fine if I use a regular browser, but it would be nice to be able to use the launcher.

Hi there! So, I'm replaying the game after more than a year without playing. Obviously, I've missed quite a bunch of content.

I had a couple of questions about the current version. So, from what I see in the spreadsheet, we have act 1 out of 4 complete for all characters, which is great. 

I can't recall if the previous demo I've played featured any kind of warning at the beginning of the game, about sexual content, or the option to censor it and stuff, so I'd like to know if this version has sexual content already, or not yet?

Also, I don't know much about the original Morenatsu and it's various versions - I've discovered the game with your remake, and was too lazy to play the old ones - it would be weird now. I've been trying to check some info without spoiling myself too much, but I've seen people saying some routes were never finished, and that included Kyouji and Soutarou. And some people seemed to consider their route was some kind of conjointed one, with either a poly relationship as an outcome, or they seemed to consider the two of theme are currently in a relationship, and were against routes for them since they didn't want Hiro to make them break up. But well, fan discussions on websites are not really to be trusted, am I right? So really, I'd like to know if they have actual separate routes or not? It's even more confusing since the first character choice in the game, during the welcoming party, is for them both, if you choose so.

And also, I've seen some placeholder art, but I was wondering about the background. Will you leave the altered photos as they are now, or are you planning actual drawn artworks for the BGs?


Well, I guess that's all, really. I'll go back to the game later. It's such a pleasure to play.

Hah, the tatoo looks gorgeous! I hope you'll keep it as it is or with only minor changes!

Kahlil looks good to me, too.


And man, I'm glad you had that backup and didn't loose everything. That would have been awful!

Oh sure! I'll do that once I'm done!

Yes! It's very fun so far! And having purchased it on Steam, I even get trophies from it, so it's nice too. I'll probably check out your other games too!

I'm sorry your game has been reuploaded without your agreement - I hope it gets solved soon. As a positive note if that can make it a bit less frustrating, I found it thanks to that and purchased it! Not usually my type of game, but it looks quite interesting!

Hey don't worry! I'm sure the game will be awesome, so take your time and make this little gem come true!

And I LOVE Changeling! This makes me so excited!

Hey, congrats on the success of the Kickstarter! It was a last minute success, but a success non the less! I'm happy for you and I can't wait to have access to new beta builts now!

Well, I didn't even know I had messages disabled haha! I'll try to do something with that, but I'll message you anyway - thanks!

I've checked the Patreon post, and Guntur looks really nice! But then again, he always does haha...

As for Kahlil, I think a frontal or almost frontal running pose would be nice, yeah. Or something like crouching / dodging with fllowing hair. 

I'm not used to twitter and stuff, but I believe it should be enough if I tell you I'm @Kurozora_Konoi on there? Haha, sorry, I'm so bad with that XD

Ah, by the way, are you planning on releasing Steam Keys to they people who purchased it here, at some point? I tend to favor Steam, but I didn't notice it was on there too, and purchased it here.

Ah, I didn't know about a bigger version being made! I love the short version to no end, so I expect great things from this one.

Downloaded already! Will play it this night! 

Eeeh, Escape Rooms - never tried participating, but I'd like to become game master for that kind of stuff (I have a lot of experience as a game master in tabletop RP). Seems like a lot of fun!

Anyway, NOW I can replay the demo haha

Aah, congrats on the progress!

But eeeh, don't give me false hope for Gale! I wanted so badly for him to get a route - if you say that and in the end nothing happens, I'll be so saaad!

Oh my XD

Okay, I'll wait for the new demo before replaying then - thanks for the heads up!

Congratulations!

It's awesome you're done with the writing, minus some polishing!

I guess it's time for me to replay the demo... again XD

Oh wow, I can't believe it! Thank you!

I'll send an e-mail right away!

Honestly I like both versions for Kahlil, so in this case I don't mind either way. He's so pretty in both cases!

As for the conversation well... good luck!

Yeah, I do my best. I'm sensitive to the heat, so unfortunately even hydrated I always feel awful with high temperatures, but oh well, it'll go down a bit starting today

Hey, you're not slow haha!

By the way, I was a bit busy this week, and the heat kills me, but I'll be able to work on the designs on tuesday!

Yeah, creepy demons are definitely interesting!

And e-mail noted! I'll probably start with a couple of sketches with various hairstyle / clothing options, and then refine the ones you'll like the best

Okay so, I'm done with the latest built of the demo. I'll be starting on the drawings asap, but in the meantime I'll give you my feedback - it's quite lenghty because I somehow forgot to post it with the latest built so yeah XD


I'll start with the few issues I've stumbled upon.

- In Potter City, at the potion stall on the market, you can choose the "Frugal" option even if you're not frugal.

- There is a "bustling city" background noise that stays no matter what you do or where you go even after leaving Potter City, like the mines in the Kurost Pass or the Bandit Encampment, and also the selection screen on the map and other places. It was a problem with previous builts too, but somehow I always notice it when starting the mission with Tyran, so it may start at this specific point, I'm unsure. The sound is natural when you're in Potter City, but quite bothersome elsewhere.

- Erika's portrait (the text box one) still has a faint square around it.

- Icarus' portrait (also text box) moves slighly from left to right depending on the expression he has.

- I love the open bounty mission idea, but I'm unsure if I've completed it correctly. I did it when it appeared - after accepting the mission with Tyran. I defeated the 5 bandits group and got out of the dungeon by the other exit, but going back to the academy after that and talking to Stella didn't give me any new dialogue. And when asking her for advice on my current task, she directly skips to asking if she can help with anything, not giving any form of advice on anything. Also, I got the clue from the bandit fight, but I don't seem to be able to see it in my inventory or anything.

- Being able to consult karma points and aquired perks would be very useful (unless you can do it and I somehow missed it XD)

- Myrana's new bust bothers me a bit. It's a nice picture, but since she's leaning forward and not standing straight, she shouldn't be so "high" on the screen. I know she's very tall, but not THAT tall, based on the picture at the end of Act II. And besides, I think the bust is even slighly too big compared to the others (if you look at her head, it seems bigger than the other characters' - that's a good way to check the picture sizes)



And now the positive!

- The new version of the conversation between Greyson and Erika is very interesting. I like the fact it reveals more about the Osvolks - I can't wait to learn the entire truth about that story, though it's obviously awful. But the little hints and pieces here and there made me really curious.

- The whole Turtula Manor dungeons are AMAZING now. It was creepy before, but now that's on a whole new level, I'm digging it so much!

- Well, as mentionned before, I really like the open bounties idea. It's a nice challenge!

- Bless you for the perk books!



Well, I think that's all for this built. Can't really say anything story wise since it didn't really have story content, except for some background information here and there. 

Well, now I'll be able to focus on the designs! 

Okay, thanks! With that, I think I'll be able to think of something!

Also, I'm almost done with playing the latest built, so I'll be back with the feedback for that before I'll get the drawing done, if you don't mind.

Hey, you have the right to be happy and enjoy real life or cool videogames! And besides, you still reached your quota, so really, you shouldn't feel bad!

That festival sounds nice, too!

Okay, so start with a simple design idea or various options, and then we'll see - got it! I'll see what I can do!

Oh yeah, another question as it'll help me design. The design I'll be doing, is it a new look that he'll have after a time lapse or something, or do you want to change his look overall. Because well, if you'll keep the design he had so far for the beginning of the game and then he cut his hair / changed his hairstyle a bit, it won't necessarily be the same if I simply have to re-design his hairstyle and stuff. And well, same goes for the clothing

Aah, of course! Is it for the text box sprites or for the waist-up pic?

Just tell me exactly what you want and I'll start it soon!

Eeh, I tend to not like when the love interests end up with one another if you don't romance them, but I guess I don't mind it in this specific game - I like Tyran so much that I'd feel bad if I romanced any other character at any point XD

But I'm happy I gave you some ideas then!

I'm sooo excited for the game!

I think my favorite bachelor so far, or well, the one I'm the most hyped for, would be Kien. But it may change once I get the chance to play the actual game.

And thank you for the opportunity! Good luck with finishing the game!

Oh yeah, I forgot, but I actually had a question for you!


You said before that we're able to flirt with anyone and even pursue various romances till late in the game, and then at some point we'll have to choose. That much is clear. But I was wondering if mere flirting would change some dialogues? Like, you pursue mainly one romance, but flirt with some other characters without it going too far. Will stuff like that be reflected on the dialogues with the romanced character? I don't know if I'm making myself clear so I came up with a hypothetical situation for it.

That much is true, I choose to romance only Tyran in my playthrough. But now, imagine I let Sam flirt with some other characters, let's say Kuro and Roj (doesn't matter if Kuro isn't a romance option since you still can try to flirt). At some point, a conversation may come up with Tyran where he wonders if Sam is really in love with him since the only other people he seems to have any interest in are "regular" boys. Or, the opposite, if I make Sam flirt with a couple of girls only, Tyran may wonder if Sam REALLY does see him as a man despite everything he says, since he otherwise seems to like girls. 

Of course, those are just sample scenarios, but I was wondering if you were planning things like that for the game? I think it would be cool but it isn't THAT necessary either. And well, obviously it could apply in different ways for different characters - I only set Tyran as example since I'm the most familiar with him at this point.

Ah, if I could I'd help you with the bad ending - I writing bad endings is interesting. But oh well, can't really do anything considering you'd have to spoil me the entire game haha! I hope you'll find inspiration for it!
