completeley get that and agree! my comment was more for those that complained about the other characters :)

I'm excited to see how everything develops on from here. It's good that no character is perfect. It's understandable, not necessarily right how some reacted but it's realistic. As cheesy as it sounds: Nobody is perfect. And that's why this game is here. It will show their development, their changes. The Andromeda Six Team needs to learn, that not every part of the royal family is and was to blame for what happened to their planets and their lifes and simultaneously the mc has to learn about the true extent of his families (more like father and uncle) impact and what they have caused by doing nothing or doing something while harming. Of course I also want to see them mutually respect each other (at times tell each other off when someone is saying/doing something that's not okay) and learn from each other.
I'm looking forward to them growing as a team, them learning about each other and accepting each other. I know the situation right now seems more than devastating but it's realistic and it wouldn't be if everyone had acted neutral to it and if nobody had blamed the mc (that's just not how strong emotions work). Then there wouldn't be any need for change in their characters, but that is important. (i don't mean a full 180 cause that's even more unrealistic but more like they have to come to terms with their past and I'm more than ready to see that gradually while playing the story).
Okay i agree with your first part! With another episode it would have been less sad and overwhelming. But i think it's more than far fetched to say that the whole crew hated and blamed him for what happened apart from Cal. In fact there were only two guys that weren't on the mc's side.: Damon & June. And even though June did go off like that, which is not right but understandable and he knows that he's not in the right about making the mc part of this, BUT even though he's conflicted, he still was rejecting the idea of damon. The other ones did too: bash, ayame, cal, ryona, all of them showed that they still protect the mc. It's unfair to just dismiss that.
Also i don't know if we both read it differently but when all of the people talked about their past, they didn't blame the mc, but his family. And tbh that's more than right. They also said that this may be a difficult situation but they won't dislike the mc just because they are part of the royal family.
I do however agree that it was kinda surprising that the characters and their roles for this whole situation were chosen like that. June as the guy that can't handle the truth or cal as the person that's seemingly neutral about it. I didn't expect that either since i thought that maybe cal or ryona would be the one's not handling the truth well. But i kinda like it, because the most are kinda surprised of how the roles changed and that is good. It's better to see unexpected sides of a character since we all think in these tropes it's out of character when someone does something that's not fitting his "character", when in fact he portrays are person and a person is more than "coldhearted distanced" or "loyal, friendly and helpful" etc. Idk if i explained it so that one can understand but i think it's good to go out from the fixed character personality trope from time to time. :)
yeah the chasing part i fully agree with! I hope there will be some kind of oppurtunity for damon to basically tries to "impress" the mc instead of the mc doing it. Then again i think it's kinda difficult to display it, because we as the mc control the story and so we kinda have to press for the romance ourselves if you know what i mean. Hopefully there still will be a way for the mc to also distance herself and then damon chases her. That would be cool, too onesided is never good
I kinda get what you mean. I want to know too whether the race thing was just for more customization purposes or whether that will make any difference. Personally I'm okay with both.
With the character personality I would like to know whether it makes a long-lasting difference that you have chosen the emotional/aloof/strong option and whether that determines anything. But i do think that those option will shape something, but not for now but for the future of the mc if you get what i mean. But also just to say those character shaping things are normally not to expect in every visual novel. The VN that really put their focus on something like that, they will have this in their game bio. I agree i love them more with this kind of option too. But for me it's more like a bonus not a necessity
Btw check out their tumblr. I think I've seen a bit of info on these things there :)
I guess they were because he didn't act any different. For me it was quite understandable too. We all knew the very first scene we met Damon, that he is an ass, very cold and distanced. And I also do think that at this point of time in the game, Damon still doesn't see the mc as a person that is invaluable for him. At this point they flirt together but that doesn't mean anything romantic at this point. I think that that is realistic. I would be kinda mad, if someone as distanced and cold-hearted like Damon would be this close after only two episodes. That wouldn't be realistic. So for me the way he acted does make sense. I think when they become closer, he'll gradually will come to change to an extenct of course (no one changes completely). But as of for now I think it's good that they made Damon not change anything in his behavior and that he still doesn't trust the mc. Because if we think about it. They all are mercenaries. And as harsh as this might sound, I do believe that the crew would have at least discussed his proposal if they haven't had known the mc and came to know this fact. But since the most of the crew are kindhearted and they already knew the mc by then, this proposal was out of question. But Damon isn't like this, so he won't just trust someone/get attached to someone just because they flirted a little and have known each other for a while. But I'm 100% sure once they really established this trust, he will the most caring and protective boyfriend.
egal, enough of the ted talk :D have to get back to studying
I definitely agree with the "giving our piece of minds" option. And yeah I do think that there's still so much we don't know about him and the others. That was just the introduction i feel like. They all did talk about their pasts but some of them really just shortly and not with any details. And yeah i think so too, we'll get to know a bit more about damon in the next episode. I also have the feeling that maybe we'll meet the girl that was teaching him stuff as a kid. I'm really excited!!!
I kinda get that people feel like that this was rushed with the background stories but for me personally i think this overwhelming feeling was purposefully made. Like everything comes crashing down on them: their past, the betrayal, the tragic life stories etc.. Like this feeling we probably all had at some point: feeling shitty and then just shit keeps piling up with even more problems, situations etc. So i thought of this episode, as something like that.
I agree that maybe it does come off as unnatural since everyone were talking about their stories back on back, but at the same time i think it was the perfect opportunity to explain why they reacted the way they did when the mc came out as a royal. I also do think that they didn't reveal that much. I think that there will be a lot more to learn about them and about the details and how maybe things were connected etc.
I agree for me it would have been the perfect thing if they would have told the mc when their homeplanets would have been visited. So something like: oh here was when that and that happened, showing them around whilst telling the mc about their past. That would have been the ideal thing (for me) but i do think that something similar will happen in future episodes and i think given the fact that in some of the upcoming episodes we'll get to pick our love interest, it does make sense that like the general "gist" of their past was revealed. Plus like i said, i kinda have the feeling that there will be a lot more revealed that we don't know yet.
Could be but Nah, i don't think so. I think that there will be something with him, vexx and zovack but i don't think that he'll do this. I also am disappointed that damon said it, but i think for someone like him, someone that lived his life in hell ( we'll probably get to know even more in the upcoming episode) I think it's not surprising to grow up to be a cold and rational, ruthless guy like this. He probably faced so many shitty ass humans in his life so why should he already trust the mc after knowing them for like two weeks or so. He's a person that needs to change this attitude, i agree, but at the same time it'd be out of character for him not to at least name this idea. It's not something that he'll overcome over night.
I also think that yeah, He proposed it, but he also immediately knew that no one would agree so it was just him and his personality thinking about a rather rational and cold way and also don't forget: these guys are mercenaries not civilians, they think like that. I'm 100% sure half of them at least thought about this for a second. Yeah they are more human and less ruthless and cold as damon so of course they immediately discard it but that's the thing: Damon is a guy shaped by his past. Like all of them. But certain factors, traits and circumstances, influences made him to a cold guy, closing off anything that could tie him down, anything that could get him attached and that could trigger his emotions that he hides in some far away corner. All of them could have potentially been like him with pasts like that. But they all got some second chance, someone /something that saved them. That and the fact that they all have different traits, it's clear that some grow up to be the positive, the kind way like ayame for example and some end up like damon.
That being said, you're definitely entitled to not liking him. But me personally, i want to see his character development. I think he's a coldhearted person, but i also think that all of them are messed up in some kind of ways and i just want to see their whole stories and their development and how they will (hopefully) " make peace" with their past.
I thought about the home planets too and I really hope they take that kinda route like you said. Seeing from where they come from, why they are the way they are and how the royal family is linked to their messed up past but I'm really excited to see all this and i also hope to see that the mc is apologizing in behalf of his family with the promise to make it better, for all the people suffering, his friends from the crew and his sister nerissa ( that is if he's going to become the king at the end)
Yeah totally I agree with you !! Honestly they are pretty reasonable considering that a lot of their personal fates were a consequence by how the royals were not caring or (not) handling the situations in their home planets.
But for me it was surprising that he out of everyone was the one opposed to it the most. I mean after hearing his story it obviously made sense to me and i understand it 100% but my surprised reaction was more like that i expected the captain to be the character to react like that or before the episode aired i thought because of ryonas bio and the sentences for episode three that she would be the one that wouldn't handle the truth that well. So for me it wasn't that i didn't understand it, because i obviously totally agree with their anger and frustration and understand him, it was more that it surprised me in terms of who the person will be, that isn't handling it well
Exactly! I thought about the scars for a second but somehow i didn't connect them but yeah now that you've said it!
Something is going on and i'm kinda suspicious about damon and the blood. I can't help but think that damon met vexx and let him run because something is there and we don't know about it yet and not gonna lie my mind crossed the thought about how damon maybe is some kind of spy for zovack.
Honestly this was soo good. Directly starting the episode with the continuation of that big cliffhanger and then all that happened with vexx, to the big revelation, this episode was so unbelievably exciting and full of suspense.
This episode just showed again how talented and hardworking your whole team is and I'm falling in love even deeper with all of these wonderful characters. My two main love interests are still damon and bash but honestly it's awesome that I've found a visual novel that makes me want to play every route and i sure will. All of them have a story to tell and I'm totally here for it. The overall story is so important from a cultural and socially view point.
I loved all the one on one scenes in the first two episodes but I did in fact see that the mc and the potential love interests have ''moved closer'' in this episode and my heart was beating so much, my face was blushing hard. I love it when something is written that well that i can simply feel everything the scene wants to convey! Everything else was amazing too. The CG, the flow, the music and the overall smoothness.
Honestly i was surprised with how one in the team reacted (don't want to spoiler) and wouldn't have expected that reaction but that just wants me to know their story even more.
Also I know shits going down right now but I can't help but think how well vexx and damon could get along with each other. Kinda want to see that. I also just realized the drawings of bash in the pilot room and I love it :D and the thing on cal's neck.
Thank you for this amazing game <3 i can't wait for the next episode, cursa, damon and the potential person from his past ?!?? ( lol i'm just theorizing...unless...)
can't believe that i only just now discovered your game ! I'm very much looking forward to begin playing but i already can tell that this will be a gem and a rare case of me playing all routes as all of them seem like interesting and fun characters with amazing yet emotional stories
but not gonna lie, I already know who my favourite is and whose route I'll play first: DAMON all the way - not only is he basically my type on paper (love island reference) but i also love the name damon :D
Edit: wow! I've played the demo and I'm head over heels, this is, just as I expected, a gem!! I just can't find the right words but I'm already addicted to this game and story and the characters already have a special place to me. I'm very excited about playing their routes and seeing what happens with my mc's memories and the secret person etc.
I love the character design, the art, the music, how well everything is scripted and harmonizes well together and also how smoothly the transitions are! The writing is amazing. It is fascinating and beautiful to me how one can capture so much emotions and provide the reader with so much material at the same time that i vividly can imagine the tension between the mc and the other characters. Not just in the main story itself but also when e.g. damon interacts with my mc - like I'm blushing like crazy with all the tension and vibing i get from his dialogues and the narrative writing (but the same goes for the other characters too) - 10/10 would recommend! ;)
I just finished playing the demo and i was blown away to say the least: I'm very intrigued by the suspenseful story, I love the writing, the characters are very interesting and hot. The gameplay was smooth, fluent and i had a lot of fun. The art was beautiful: the characters as well as the backgrounds. The music was harmonizing as well
I can't wait to see what happens next, what the both of them hide behind their perfectly made masks/faces (very handsome ones if i may add). I'm also looking forward to the personality stats!!
Great job :)))
First of all, there's no problem in taking your time! In the end it's better for everyone and it would be a pity if you needed to stress yourself even more than you already do and that's why do it in your pace and I'll gladly wait a bit longer if that means that the game's quality is higher and the team had more fun doing it.
1. I'm okay with both since they both interest me :)
3. + 4. auf jeden fall! definitely! I think things like that are really interesting and help us understand more of what you have to do to ensure that this game works at its best. for me personally youtube would be the best
First of all, wonderful game. It is so well written and the story was so full of suspense and I loved the aspect of how you get to know more and more with each route you play so that you have the full picture after playing all the routes!! The art is gorgeous and the cg's really awesome and well used!! I know it's coming late but about the after stories, have they been already published? And idk why because I've played all the endings but one CG is still missing out of the total 12 CGs? Is there any special way to achieve that cg or did I do something wrong?
I'm already hooked with this game tbh. I mean you always make good games so I'm not even surprised that I'm in love with this game. It looks so freaking promising, intriguing, exciting, mysterious,etc!! The art style is gorgeous to say the least , the aesthetics, the setting absolutely dark and beautiful at the same time. The characters are whats the most interesting tbh, I'm so curious and excited to get to know them and their story and obviously romance them all ;)) When I firstly visited this site, after playing the first red embrace I immediately fell in love with Heath (which partly has something to do with his name but also his looks and the little character sheet I've read) so it goes without saying that I will play his route first. But I didn't expect the others to be equally as interesting as him so even though they might not be my type (visually) they are so interesting and likable and I already know that I'll fall in love with all of those characters and also the story.
Obviously it is linked to the other, first game and I really love that. The first game was already so freaking good but since it wasn't that long there were still open questions about the whole vampire world and all of that and now we get to play behind the scenes in one of the gangs and I love the idea by splitting them into different personality groups. The first game introduced features like the fact that you could change the personality of your mc by your choices and I'm in love with things like that because I like to be more sassy and confident and a bit of a tsun-tsun :D - playing hard to get xD and often the mc is just a pretty friendly person which is awesome but still if you want to be a bit teasingly mean it's always the bad route you'd get ,so I hope that will be different with this personality you give to your mc. Because in your first game it was a bit of a pity that choosing the bold options led to their bad routes and I hope it won't be like that in the new game but I already saw a huge improvement in the demo. Since adding the different houses will probably ensure that you being bold or whatever can be the good choice for some characters.
Also you added the option for customising your mc's gender or the appearance and that is absolutely amazing and really thoughtful. Not many devs do that, so massive compliment for that!! You also consequently changed the text and the pictures according to how the mc looks and what it wants to be adressed as. That probably took a lot of time and you still did that and I appreciate that very much :) and then the npc's will remember how you treated them. How amazing can it get ?
I'm excited for this game and my theories are running wild. Especially for Randal. I mean I already thought that he has this whole Jesus Jared Leto vibe going on but when I saw his stigmata,the tattoos and also the fact how his group dynamics are, I got really suspicious. That can't be a coincidence, or am I just overanalyzing ? :D
Finally I have two questions: Is it possible to romance someone of the other house. So If I'm from the Iscari house is it possible to get together with Randal? And if that is a yes, will there be also some other dialogues ? And secondly: will there be any smexy times ? Because unfortunately there weren't any in Red Embrace.
All in all, I have high hopes and if Red Embrace was the totally awesome ice cream then Red Embrace:Hollywood probably will be the even bigger and better ice cream with cherry on top. So you can guess that this game is already on my wish list on steam
I just rated the demo but I don't know whether you can see it. But to sum it up: I'm hooked. The story, the characters, the layouts and aesthetics, the soundtracks , the art style and CGs, the mistery. the fact that is is fully voiced, I'm loving it ;) and also the boys are all pretty smexy I don't even know where to start. Since I love the teasing types I think I'll be pretty happy about those love interests :D :3
