Cool little game! And the art is so sweet, I'm in love with it!

Did one ending so far, the Full Timer one. If I may ask, how many endings per character does the game have, and are there "better" endings than the one I got? I liked the ending I got but I'm wondering how romantic or not the game can get so I know what to expect from other endings haha!

Anyway, it was a very pleasant experience so far!

You're welcome, and thanks for the answers! Can't wait to check out the next update when it'll come out

(1 edit)

Wow, this was such an amazing experience! And I've tried only one character so far!

The overall ambience of the game is great - it's so beautiful! And botht the art and music are gorgeous. I'm curious, is the music custom made or just very good choices?

As for the characters, I liked all of the ones I've interacted with, but I'm weak towarts Nikolai. He isn't really "my type", but I really like alkonosts - one of my favorite magical creatures actually. I was amazed to see one in a game honestly - they're not a very well known species. And well, somehow, I've come to like him a lot, even in such a short span. But I bet his route will be tricky - at least to get a good ending. Oh well, I do like challenges!


Also, I wanted to ask three questions, if you don't mind!

- Will you add more characters to the game?

- Are you planning on adding CGs?

- How many chapters per route for the full release?


Anyway, thanks for the great experience, and good luck with the project!

I'll try to find that later - I'm actually on a borrowed computer cause mine broke, so I don't know things like that out of the bat. I'll check it out

Managed to go back to the default settings by re-extracting the game from the .rar after erasing the original extracted files. Still can't change the settings but I have sound again. Though I stumbled upon a more serious issue. During the Seth scene with the stained dress, once I reach the CG, it appears deformed (like stretched) and no text appears. I see it should have text and there is a little cursor moving, but nothing appears. It goes back to normal after the CG part, but even in the log I can't see what was said (it's like there is no log for that part at all). 

Can't seem to be able to do anything about this one, so I'll wait for it to be fixed as I don't want to miss on anything.


On a side note, I'm really digging the fantasy investigation thing!

I sure do too!

But I have a small issue and I can't figure out what is the problem. I wanted to ajust the text speed, sound and stuff before starting, but when I click on the little square indicator - it goes all the way to the minimum (happens on all bars) and I can't crank it up afterwards, so I'm stuck with no sound and so on. I've tried exiting the game and opening it again. The squares appear at their default positions but I don't have sound anyway, and if I click on them they go all the way down again. Also, can't go into windowed mode.

Haaah congrats on the release! 

I'm downloading right now and will be playing soon! I tell you my thoughts after finishing the game, or at least one romance.

Okay! Thanks - nice to be sure!

(1 edit)

Ah well, I don't mind waiting for the full release but it depends if it'll take very long to be finished to be honest. I don't know your planned release date so yeah (I mean, I don't know if the november one is after being pushed back or not)...

If it'll be long, then partial releases may be a good idea! After all, me and I'm sure tons of other people are hyped for this game for a very long time haha.

That reminds me I haven't pre-ordered yet. Time to do it I guess

Oh wow, I wasn't really up to date with the news - didn't even notice it'll be released so soon haha

So yeah, considering I was expecting to wait months, I don't mind such a small delay. Good luck with squashing the bugs!

Haha yeah; black or dark blue wolves aren't the easiest to deal with in illustrations. But so pretty!

Ah, this CG looks so much better now! While all of the changes are nice, I must admit the hind legs were the only thing that actually bothered me in it - though the new shading is gorgeous too!

Eh, sadly I may need to pass on this one - amnesia is one of my pet peeves in fiction, unless treated in some specific ways. But good luck with the project non the less!

Okay, thanks!

With the current amount of chapters done, I think it's a good moment for me to start the game, but I'd like to know something before getting into it.

Does the game have 6 individual romances and among the 6 characters 2 pairs can also be part of a poly relationship if you want to play in such a way, or is it ONLY possible to get some romances if you go poly, and you have 6 main routes aside from that? While I like poly routes sometimes, it's quite rare and I tend to avoid that - so I'd like to know so I can plan what I do in the game XD


Anyway, can't wait to get into it! Seems very promising!

Thank you! I'll go and look how to message you over on Patreon!

And sure, I can wait for the new release

Replying on this old thread since we were talking here haha

Last month was WILD, but I finally managed to send some money via Patreon - yeah, I know, it's almost the next month, but oh well XD

I've send enough for the tier that allows me to get a sketch (from the kurozora.konoi e-mail if you want to check), so I'd love to discuss what I'd like, but well, tell me if you'd rather do it here or by mail. I'm fine with both!

On a side note, maybe I'm derping, but I can't manage to find the Patreon version of the demo - any help? XD

Nice to know the king may be an option in the future! 

And sure, I can wait a couple of days for the extended demo - I don't mind it being a bit more rough and unfinished. Thank you for telling me!

Wow, must play this!

I'll write my thoughts once I'm done, but I'd like to ask a question before starting, if you don't mind. Is the king an actual romance option too? In scenarios like this one, I always like it when the arranged marriage candidate ends up being the true love, despite the main character not necessarily wanting to marry them to begin with. So it would be a huge plus for me haha 

Hey there! This is a random and maybe useless topic!

I know you guys are working hard on the game when you can afford to do it, and I'm glad you didn't forget about the project. I just want to say I'm still here, waiting patiently and cheering on you! I did a lenghty review after playing the game so you guys already know I think it's awesome, but nothing wrong with telling it again, right?

So yeah, hang in there!


PS: on a side note, I've only recently noticed you were the people who did a2 too. It was such a lovely little game that really stuck with me. I remember my playthrough of it so dearly. So keep up the good work and awesome games!

Just came back here to see if we had some news, and sadly nothing - I guess I'll keep waiting, I don't actually have issues with that nor will I be asking for a refund since I adored the two routes we got.


But that leads me to my second point. I'm so surprised by the comments. Honestly, I didn't expect people to complain about the "lack of romance". I definitely don't agree with that. But the romance here is more subtle than in some other games, and leaves lots to the players' imagination - and I like that. Now, I totally understand some people may play otome games only for kisses and steamy scenes, but I'm not necessarily in for that. After playing litteraly dozens of otome and BL games, I know for sure a good romance game doesn't need to have any explicit kissing or sexual scenes to be perfectly fine and great.

So yeah, it may not be your jam if you NEED kissing, but I think it's a very nice, sweet and touching game if you're fine without it. 

What it definitely IS, it's an otome game. It's just not your standard otome, that's it. After playing as many games as I did, you just start to see more and more atypical games that break the codes, and you also start to think of it as refreshing.


If you want great but more conventional indie otome games, I suggest Nusantara: The Legend of the Winged Ones and Cinderella Phenomenon (both are free and a new Nusantara game is in the making too). 

Can you believe I still didn't have time to play the game since the full version is out? It makes me so mad with my busy schedule and hectic life! I honestly hope I'll find some time soon. I mean seriously, I funded an entire ending in this thing and then didn't have time to play *tears*

(1 edit)

Wow, when you said 2 chapters left, it hit me how close your are to completion - well, of the story part at least! At this point, even if you don't meet the weekly quota, you still deserve congratulations!

I hope everything will go smoothly with writing, coding and drawing till the end!


On a side note, I must admit I don't know what to think anymore. I'm very hyped for the antagonist's route as I usually love antagonists routes in games and I also love romances that are very slow to start, so it's totally up my alley. I'm also very eager for Guntur's route since he's my favorite from the start, and obviously for Kah'lil as I like him more and more with each passing week and I've even dreamt about him as I told you before and all... But because of that, I'm getting worried I won't like Arya's route as much as the other three. I hope he'll prove me wrong when I do his route!



EDIT: I've seen How To Train Your Dragon 3 today, finally!

(2 edits)

Congrats!

I am so SO happy about the success of the kickstarter! I'll be donating later today, even though the game is already funded. May as well help in reaching a new stretch goal! (EDIT: and done! Pledged enough for the betatesting tier!)


PS: also, that pic of Adnan is the cutest thing ever - love the sketchy and spontaneous style

Haha, actually my question was SPECIFICALLY if the only characters for the sketch things were the knights, since I wasn't sure. I'm totally planning on asking for a character from the game though XD - I mean, how could I NOT ask for Errol 

Wow the improvement is so huge on the doctor's sprite! Congrats!

Also, I think I need to say it - it's so considerate of you to warn people about the upcoming themes and adress this stuff in details for those who want to read it. You didn't really HAVE to put exteded explanations on it, as many creators don't, but you still did, and it's very nice. Now, as I'm a person who  throroughly enjoyed Corrupter, of course I'm not one of the people who'd be bothered by the themes per se, but I'm the kind of person who may be very upset depending on the character it happens to, so I was glad I was able to check in the link. As you may remember, Errol is my favorite character, and I think I would be genuinely distressed if it was directly about him.

Anyway, I may be able to become a patron starting next month, and it makes me happy. If I can afford it, I'll gladly take the tier that allows me to get a sketch. On that matter, do I have to ask for one of the knights if I do so, or can I ask for any character? Bet you know where I'm getting to with that XD

(1 edit)

I'm playing on Windows, so no problem with that.

And I've tried both with my old saves from itch.io and with a fresh file just in case, so it shouldn't be that either.


EDIT: now, if it's only me, don't worry too much - as I said, I won't be getting all the achievements anyway, so a couple more or less won't change anything. But there's no guarantees someone else won't have the same issue.

(3 edits)

Redeemed my code earlier today!

I've been trying to get the endings I got before the Steam version was released, for the sake of achievements, but some of them don't unlock. It's not that important to me since I won't be getting all endings anyway, but for people who want to get a 100%, it'll be an issue.

The endings that don't want to unlock so far are End 1 and End 3. Keep in mind I won't be able to check for any of Mark's or normal endings as I'm not planning to do them - neither the so called "friendship" one I've discovered while checking the guide for other ways to get some of the bad endings (wanted to see if they're bugged no matter the way you reach them, and yes).

EDIT: End 9 achievement doesn't unlock as well. Same for End 12 (at least on Biel's route - haven't tried on Pol's). Aaand same for End 8. I won't be trying with any more endings so that's it. But I'm sure other people will report if the various normal or Mark ending achievements have problems too!


On a side note, I've discovered another thing that you may (or not?) want to twitch. You actually can't skip the credits unless you're already pressing the skip key before reaching the credits screen. And if you don't set the game so it skips all dialogues, it stops you at the screen before if this is a new ending, so yeah, you HAVE to watch the credits at that point - no matter what I press, it seems impossible go back to the menu until the credits end. The ending is quite short and it's pretty, so it's not an issue if playing the game at a normal pace. But when doing a lot of endings one after another just to unlock them, it gets pretty tedious. And well, since the ending names have been added since the pre-Steam version, the game considers the last dialogue box as "not read" and so yeah, I'm forced to watch the credits XD (I don't want to set it to skip all dialogue just in case there's something important for me to see).

Thank you for your answers! 

I somehow missed the FAQ - it's quite interesting! I understand very well your reasons for removing humans and thus changing the MCs species - obviously you can do so much more like this. I mean, if humans were considered inferior to the beastmen, as you seem to imply with the FAQ, it would have oppened other possibilities too, like a scenario where as kids, no one from the group cared about things like that, but as adults, there would be the fear of that coming into play in any future relationship and stuff. But yeah, it wouldn't help for the part about allowing players to imagine the characters as humans or as animals of their species and stuff, obviously. All in all, it's a clever choice, though I can understand how fans of the original may be bothered by it. As a new player, obviously, I'm not attached to him being a human, and well, as said before, I really like Hiro as a MC, so I'm pretty happy with the path you choose!

Hah, just finished playing the demo! I'm so sad no route is fully complete but it was great anyway!

So yeah, first of, I want to say I didn't actually play any version of Morenatsu before Homecoming, so I'm here with an entirely fresh opinion without any elements to compare it to. 

The game has such a nice nostalgic feeling to it - it's really the first thing that I've noticed about it, and it really made a huge impact on me. I find it very endearing and touching, be it in sad or funny moments. I like the art style, and I'm especially fond of the little profile pics of the characters on the bottom right part of the screen - most have a vintage charm the main sprites lack. But both sets are pretty! I was wondering though - will the sprites get multiple expressions and/or poses later on, or will it stay as it is? And also, are the backgrounds placeholders for fully drawn ones, or will they stay as edited pictures? Just wondering.

Hiro is a very sweet character - I'm glad this game has an MC like him. I instantly felt attached to the guy. I really like how he can be a dork sometimes, but he's always sensitive and caring in the end. It's also interesting to me to observe his self doubt bordering self deprecation and his anxieties. I hope he'll get better during the course of the month. Now, I wouldn't say he's my favorite character in the game, but he certainly is a hero I adore and I'm sincerely rooting for him. Probably one of my favorite BL game MC all in all. I have a question about him too, though. I may be wrong, but I believe I've read somewhere that in previous version(s) of the game, he was a human guy and didn't have so much personnality (being rather a blank page for the players to indentify themselves with). I love MCs who are their own people since I never identify with the characters I play and if the games force me to do that I feel uncomfortable, so if that's an actual change that you made, I'm happy about it. But I'm wondering about him being a human before. Was that really a thing? If yes, I'm very curious about why it was changed. I honestly don't mind him being either a fox or a human, I'd enjoy the story in both cases, and I think it's extremely cute when he rolls his tail around him and stuff like that. I'm simply very curious about what could motivate such a change. 


Now, to answer your questions! Well, as for who is my favorite character, I actually can't decide between Shin and Kouya. I LOVE them both, and it's really hard to choose since they're so different. More surprisingly, Soutarou isn't that far behind them. He isn't really my type, but I really grew attached to him. Honestly, the only character I don't like is Tatsuki. As for the others, well, even my least favorite ones all have some things about them I enjoy or find redeeming at least.

My favorite event is with no doubts the shrine prayer and wish making with Soutarou. I literally teared a bit during this one. Man, so much feels there! Entertaining the children with Kouya was funny too with all the quick reacting and stuff (I'm a huge fan of timed choices, so of course I like it). And aside from that, I like all events with Shin, but with no one being outstanding compared to the other ones - I think I'll wait to have more of the game before deciding my favorite event with him. I can't predict who'll have my nº1 favorite event of all in the end. Well, probably one of my three favorite characters, but yeah... Now, I've also enjoyed the Seven Wonders one - the part about the seventh one was unexpected and hit me right in the feels too XD

Now, what am I looking for the most? That's always a hard one to me, honestly. Obviously I'm looking for the full version, and I'm looking for lots of feels, but aside from that... eh... I guess I'm simply looking for the full game haha!


Anyway, I fell in love with this game and explored a lot of paths in the demo! Good luck with the full project guys!

Hah, Guntur is such a handsome character - it never ceases to amaze me XD

And the bottles are so cute! Ah, I can't wait to be able to watch the movie!

Ooh, I see, I see! Yeah, definitely needed the clarification about the single route romances and the secret romance haha! I guess I'll see if I like the characters I meet, and if I like someone a lot and they're one of the romance'able characters, or one I think may be, I'll redo an adequate playthrough of Rose of Segunda, so I won't have continuity errors.

Thank you for your answers!

AAAH! This was sooo cool! I'm so glad we finally have the (full) demo! I wanted to wait for this one before playing, so yeah.

Well, before diving into my feedback, I wanted to remind once more that since this isn't mandatory, I didn't play the solo and the girls' routes, as that's really not my thing. But I'll do my best to properly review the rest!



First of all, the backgrounds are really pretty. They seem improved from the first game, if I'm not mistaken? Anyway, I like those and I like the new clothes - very elegant, and all of the little changes alude nicely to a change of times and a tense period. You can really sense from many little thing the country will be at war soon. Now the only thing missing is a proper soundtrack, and the atmosphere will be amazing!

There are some typos and stuff here and there, but nothing that won't be changed with later proofreading, I'm sure.

I'm slighly confused about the choices at the beginning that serve to determine the way you played Iolanthe in the first game. I believe I choose well since she doesn't seem out of character compared to how I left her, but well, hard to tell for sure since the demo was quite short. But I'm not saying it was too short either. I wouldn't mind a longer one, sure, but it was enough to see what's happening, some of the situation the country is in, get a nice glimpse of how is Iolanthe's couple life, and be hyped for what's coming next - so no complaints here!


Now, the characters and routes. Well, funny thing is, my route ranking is the same in this demo as it was in The Rose of Segunda, with my favorite being Frederique, then Leo, followed by Bastien and finally the prince. The girls were last back then, but as I told before, I didn't try their routes here. Interestingly, despite what you said about his route in the latest update post, Bastien's route wasn't really unexpected to me. I have more or less predicted they WOULD be back somehow to the Parisi, and some form of deep emotional troubles - both things would be necessary for one part to make the route possible and for other part to make for some interesting tension and stuff. 

As for my detailed thoughts about the routes so far, well, I'll go from my least favorite to my favorite.

- Guillaume: well, him being my least favorite doesn't mean I don't love him - that ranking is only comparative, with the other characters I like more. Now, his route was actually the most surprising one to me, to be fair. I didn't think he'd support his father so much and that he'd be so much in denial of his bad ways. It makes for interesting tension, and I'm wondering how the situation will end in this route. Strangely enough, it's the one that felt the less romantic to me too, it was too tense, maybe partly because it felt too tense since I simply couldn't agree with him on some of the things he was talking about. That's basically all I can say for now about him, I think.

- Bastien: I've already shared some of my thoughts about him before, but that was basically about the fact I wasn't really surprised by his route here. So, onto the route itself! It was a VERY interesting one. Honestly, it would be higher in the list if Leo and Frederique weren't SO DAMN AWESOME. Ahem, sorry! It was really heartbreaking, to begin with. It always made me so sad to see Bastien suffer because of what may have been happening in the first game, and with all the awful stuff that happened between the two games, ugh! I feel really bad for him because of his father rejection, the bad reception of the marriage and all the different issues he and Iolanthe have to face against. But it's even more painful to see how he reacts to that. And what makes it worse is that his reactions are totally understandable, especially considering he's quite introverted. It also saddens me to see the always so strong Iolanthe struggling with keeping her head up and not feeling too tired by all of this. All in all, I expect greatness from this route when it'll be fully released.

- Leopold: well, I love the guy as always! And I like the fact that you can be on the "bad" side if you're doing this route (if we consider Guillaume's is the "good" one). Leo is and always was my kind of character - one who's disgraced and kind of an underdog if we talk about good suitors, but who has great ambitions too, and who'll be truly gratefull and sweet with the main character if hey choose him and truly love him. And well, I gotta love the intrigue in this route. Seeing how Iolanthe and Leo are in perfect synch and harmony with each other, and how they can create such elaborate plans on the long term all to get what they want is really cool. I also like the fact you can choose if Iolanthe is helping Leo out of love, or if she really shares his dreams and ambitions. While both choices obviously promise support, the undertones are really quite important. I don't think their harmony and, for the matter, their marriage will truly last if they're not on the same page. And if they're not, they'll have to seriously talk about this. But well, personally, I really like to show full support there, as opposite to Guillaume's route where I can't always agree. And besides, I believe it's truly important to Leo to know he has Iolanthe's full support. When he actually talked about that... well, it was truly touching to me.

- Frederique: ah, the best for last! Well, what can I say... I had a litt-HUGE soft spot for him since the very beginning, in the first game. I just can help it, he automatically puts a grin on my face and makes me feel happy. He's such a lovely character, and his relationship with Iolanthe is so sweet and daring and strong at the same time. I have a trully hard time making a review here - I love him too much to think straight. Well, all in all it's nice to see they had a happy life, at least up until now, and if you fully develop the whole spying scenario you put in place for this route, it may be the most interesting one, even if we're not talking about the romance itself. But I'm REALLY wary of Iolanthe's and Frederique's mother in this route. I hope she won't pull anything crazy and awful on them. So yeah, it makes me tense too haha - so much emotions in this one. Oh and also, it was so nice to finally see them share a kiss, albeit a brief one. Man I really hope for a kissing CG in this route, aah! I'm rarely really hung up on that, but in this specific case I missed it so much in the first game. Well, no point in me rambling on and on about this one, you get the gist of it, and at this point I'll be only repeating myself and squealing on every little detail.



And finally, some questions. 

I've seen lots of choices that seem to basically determine how Iolanthe feels about this or that (for example the ones in Leo's and Guillaumes routes about having children), but don't seem to be relevant to how  the route will progress. Are they really only there for fluff, or do all the choices have some kind of deeper purpose?

Also, does each route have more than one ending?

And last - you talk about a secret romance? I guess you must play on the solo route to get it, am I right? And are they a man or a woman? If you can tell without spoiling too much, of course!

Yes, thank you!

Don't worry, I can totally wait, I just wanted to have some kind of idea. Must be complicated without getting a script, my god! And releasing the game route by route is not a bad idea. Besides, if you do that, I'll definitely play all of the routes haha - sometimes if I like a route too much, I can't do any other after playing it, but that tends not to happen if I get to play the routes one by one like that, unless I really dislike a character.

Hey there!

Yeah, I've read Arcade Party's post about that. It's sad, but things happen - that's life for you. I'm happy you'll be going on with the projects though! I was kinda hoping it'll be you!

You've updated us on Tomai, but I was wondering if you have some infos to share or any form of approximate idea about when you'll be able  to release AWOO? If that's too early, I totally understand. But well, it's one of my most awaited games, so I had to ask.


Anyway, have a good day!

Hmm I choose my wording badly, sorry - I get that I got what is called the "ending" - I meant the "actual ending of the story" if that makes sense. Basically, I consider the epilogues as part of the story, and I don't want to have them "cut" in any way - even if it's only a couple of scenes. So yeah, I may have used the wrong words, but I've checked the Patreon page when I've reached the point in the game where it tells me about the normal or Plus epilogue, and I've commented only after getting all the info. And well, I'd rather wait and be able to play the entire chapter rather than playing the cut version and then replaying it full - waiting to be able to get the epilogue is extremely frustrating, but playing the normal one now would be even more to me, believe me! I know how Patreon works, don't worry - I know I won't get continuous updates. But that only makes the fact I can't pledge now even more accurate XD

Don't get me wrong, I will pledge if I'm able to because the game sure deserves it. I just wish the store page did say the exact differences the Patreon version has. I usually avoid checking the Patreons of games I like right now, because well I'm broke, so I don't want to tease myself with things I can't get. Thing is, in this case, I had no other way of knowing about the fact Plus even existed - well, other than checking the forum threads but I didn't want to risk spoilers - I always check that once I'm done playing.

Well, I've played Dimitri's route only, so far, and with only "kind" choices. 

Before I give my opinions, I must state one complaint I have, as it'll affect what I can tell about the game. I'm sorry for doing so as I don't like to start on a bad note but oh well, it's not really about the game itself either. It's the stuff about the Plus version. The store page sure says becoming a patron gives you access to more content, but as nothing is specified, I was thinking about side stories, bonus clothing parts or whatever. I never thought it also included actual endings, especially since the feature listing seems to list the "mature" scenes as part of the game as it is. While I'm absolutely not against some endings being playable only for patrons, I think it's very important to state so on the store page - and I mean, clearly tell people what is in the regular version and what is added in the Plus version - or at least do so at the beginning of the game, as part of the tutorial or explanations or whatever you fancy. I was playing and was really into the game, and then I reach the final chapter and suddenly the game tells me I can't play the "full" ending if I'm not a patron. Thing is, right now I'm utterly broke and well, I'm picky about endings so I won't play the normal one. So I'm stuck without an ending until I manage to get some money to spare on becoming a patron. Again, I wouldn't mind if I knew beforehand. I'd have waited before starting the game at all. Now I'm sooo damn frustrated. So yeah, not an issue of the game, but of stating clearly the differences between the regular and the Patreon versions on the store page.

That leads me to a question - when I'll finally be able to get the Plus version, will I have to start from the beginning in order to have access to the full game, or is it some form of patch, or will it detect my save and be compatible with it? The chapters in Plus may not cost gold, but I kinda don't want to go through all the special requests again just for that either, if possible


Again, I'm so so sorry about complaining so much here. I liked the game and I was really into it - but that makes the sudden force-stop all more frustrating. I hope I didn't sound too agressive about that - it wasn't my intention.



Now, for the game itself. As told, I enjoyed it. Well, at least Dimitri's route, and well, until the second to last chapter. Though the story left me very disturbed since I've been facing a lot of similar problems than those in the route, and well, I must admit it made me quite anxious at some points, but oh well, it was still very interesting and the other elements were making up for the stressful parts. Dimitri is a very cute character, and I kind of love the "second chance" kind of love stories. The fact the new romance is the brother of the previous one makes it even more interesting. Though I must admit I don't hate Alex either. I'd almost be interested in a route for him - another kind of "second chance", let's say. Well, I say that, but I'm sure I'd feel guilty about Dimitri if I Alex had a route and if I'd be playing it.

I'm glad the clothes making part of the game isn't overbearing, as stuff like that tends to bore me to no end - but it was nicely balanced, so nothing to say about that - it was totally okay. 

Characters. Well, as I said, I like both Dimitri and Alex, and most of the side characters are pretty cool too. MC is pretty okay, though sometimes she can be too naive or in denial to my tastes, but I think that may vary depending on her background / route. On that note, I have a question - do the kind or fierce choices lead to dialogue changes before the ending? Like in the way she acts "by herself" during the course of the game, I mean?


Well, it's hard to do a full review for now - I'll post something more in depth when I'll be able to finish the route and after playing the other avaible one. But if you could spare a moment for your time for answering my questions, I'd be happy! And again, please don't feel bad about the first part of my comment - you did a great job on the game, and it's totally worth a paid version and all - I'm really only bothered by the fact I couldn't know about the fact I wouldn't get the full ending before reaching the actual ending in-game. 

Oh I'm sure I'll love it!


As for the dreams, well, I have quite different dreams than most people - I hardly ever have dreams where I appear. So basically, it's like watching a movie. And even when I play a role in the dream, I'm almost never myself, like in the "me I am when I'm awake". In those cases I'm often one of my characters. Konoi is actually a wolf demoness that appears in my dream since I was 3 years old, and I'm always in her body in those dreams. They don't happen often, but each time she's older and lot of stuff have happened in her life.

A lot of the stories I create were actually taken from my movie-like dreams. So I can't really tell that a character visits "me" in a dream since I'm basically not in the dream and I obviously can't interract with them XD. It may be due to the fact I never identify with characters in fiction. For example, when I'm playing a romance VN, I don't project myself into the MC - instead I help them achieve happiness. I'm like a guardian spirit. Well, of course in  games like Baten Kaitos (not a VN, but oh well) where you actualle ARE the main character's guardian spirit, I identify with the caracter I play since it's basically the  role I always think I have when I play - with the exception I can also talk with the main character this time. Though, I tend to argue with Baten Kaitos' hero quite a lot, but that's funny too.

I think because of that, I have dreams about characters from games and series way more than people who are themselves in their dreams, as the dream can be "in context". So yeah, it was my first time dreaming about one of Bermuda's characters, but I often dream about Rama since I love him so much.

Happy to know the progress is going well - congrats on finishing another chapter!

I understand oh so well the desire to skip on the middle part in a story and go from the intro to the juicy segments XD - I have the same thing when I master RPs and I have to write my scenario. I always need to fill the middle part with interesting things for the players to enjoy, but I can't go on with the main story yet, and it frustrates me. Funny because I don't feel it as much when I write other kind of things. I guess it's because it's SO frustrating in RP that I don't feel it anymore in other circumstances haha


But seriously, you CAN'T imagine how eager I am to play. Can you believe two nights ago I've DREAMT about this game. How obsessed one can be, eh? Can't exactly remember what was in that dream, aside from the fact it was about Kah'lil

It sucks, but I totally understand you. I'm in an extremely dire situation rigth now myself - I can't find a job that can sustain me, I live in a place where I can't pay my rent right now and I have to deal with an outright crazy person (sorry for the harsh word, but believe me, it's true) but I fear they'll throw me out if I act about that, and I can't get myself to draw or write anymore because of all the stress, so it prevents me from trying to go on with my projects, and the added stress of that prevents me from looking for a better "regular" job too... It's a nightmare, so yeah...

Anyway, it at least you found a way to get out of this shit, then I'm happy for you!
