Oooh this was such a nice update!
I really liked all of them but i have to say, Charlotte's one was really quite surprising. Maybe because I played it after Frederique's very sweet and wonderful one then bam! Charlotte's one was quite serious in comparison and I liked it. I feel like I am seeing one of the conflicts that might arise in their route.
Then Sofia's extra scenes were touching. I really enjoyed them, as well as Guillaume’s one.
Speaking of Guillaume, I'm looking forward to his route!
Thanks for the update!
So...I was initially going to wait until this game is released on Steam before I buy it there but my anticipation got to me and I got the game myself (I will definately replay this game though in Steam because It's that good so far!).I have to say, this game is really in a league above Rose of Segunda, a game I already deeply love. The amount of work and quality the 2 route's writing alone has is simply amazing! And it really has me anticipating (and worried for my faves, heh) for the remaining routes when they are released.
Bastien's route was just as heavy and depressing as the demo made it. I am one of the people who had Bastien as one of my least favourite routes in TROS, but his route really made me pay more attention and appreciate his character so much more. It was painful to see him struggle throughout the route, depressing to know that his father not only regret's his existence but also blames him for his wife's death and that itself caused Bastien so much grief. But it makes his good end all the better especially when he decided to not let people talk him or his relationship with Iolanthe down.
Frankly I was almost guilty to even follow through with the other romance and even the platonic Frederic direction because of how much it hurt to hurt Basien when he was struggling so much but I did and I also enjoyed Pieto's character and the romance it went with it.
Sofia's route...It was something else, it felt more cutthroat and direr than Bastien's but I seriously deeply enjoyed it. The various plots with the nobles where interesting. Also the new characters like Lucette and more of st Rue. God I loved Lucette for what we saw of her.
The main conflict itself was very realistic, it's sad but Sofia's mother never having accepted her daughter as a lesbian because she wants her daughter to be 'normal' is still very common even at our times. I found it hard to have Iolanthe be 'understanding' since I also can understand why she'd be very upset being the one being sligted so badly but alas, I also could't be too angry with Sofia since it's her mother, cutting off family is never easy, especially if you care for them like Sofia does.
Also the whole issue with if you should keep things from Sofia or not. I intentionally hid everything from her first because I wanted the worst outcome over and done with and Oh boy, It was even more painful than Bastien's route because I knew it would come down crashing and it really did. When she was ranting about her father's past actions, how she hated his lying the most out of everything, I knew things where gonna go to hell later on. I felt so bad fo Iolanthe and Sofia.
Now Frederique, god I loved him. In both routes, he is at the very least your most closest confidant and the possible option of him being in a poly relationship with Iolanthe in Sofia's route was just amazing. The way you built up their relationship (if you choose it) was a nice touch, I simply loved it.
Now for the mother herself. She is quite a character, she is very much a love to hate character to me. She is very interesting and ruthless in a way I can appreciate. But damn, I also heavily dislike her, it's no wonder why Iolanthe and Frederick barely cares for her when she is very blunt in just using them as tools.
I will say, I am going to be so much more in pain when Frederique's, Leopond's and Charllotte's route (my top 3) are out because I know I will always wanna get the other ends first and the Good/Best end last so....the angst and complications will kill me. But I will enjoy it because you're writing is really great.
Overall, I'm anticipating for the rest and you're doing an amazing job so far!
EDIT: Also I want to add, Poor Francesca. She is truly a pitiful character, I did not end up liking her but I certainly felt more sympathy for her than the 1st game. She got duped in a crappy situation with people looking down on her. That must hurt..
I asked for a refund but unfortunately I am unable to since i bought this way too long for me to get one. Not sure If i can even dispute it. And Even if I do, I also have the same issue of not having the same card I used to but the game...
Oh, that's interesting! And it makes does sense, the dynamic between both of them would really be vastly different depending on how they got married. It even shows on the demo. I'm anticipating it!
I have to say I'm looking forward whenever Guillaume’s route is released. It's one of the routes that has a lot of diverting paths considering there are 3 ways Iolanthe be with him (arrangement, throne only or romance). So i'm definitely curious to the impressions of his route in the future.
I am part of the "wait until it's finished/in steam" camp and I have to say. This sequel is shaping up to be a really big one and I am so excited to see it all play out when I get the chance to play it. I sincerely hope this becomes really really successful. I loved the first game and the sequel looks like it will surpass it big time!
I hope it's okay to ask.
I was wondering how I can have Kamala notice Marcus' behavious in Act 2? I've tried multiple times but I guess i'm doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm just starting this game and it's lovely so far and addicting. But I heard this has multiple endings and I wanted to know how many endings are there exactly? is it purely if you can pay all of the loan or not or are there more than those 2?
thank you in advance
I think it's safe to say, this is a dead project. I'll give them the benfit of the doubt that they aren't being wholly manlicious. They were gonna finish this game wholeheartedly but real life stuff happened and then it went all to shit. And instead of explaining anything they think they can just wash their hands and move on ignoring the people that paid for this... Which is BS but hey?
I used to be optimistic but...2 years of nothing? I think this game is a dead game.
I just wanted to say that I wished I played it sooner. This game is just so fun, so charming and I love all of the characters. Iolanthe herself is a great MC, I love her to bits.
I enjoyed all of the routes and If I had to rank them based on how much I enjoyed them it wouls be like this:
Fredericks's route was just so sweet, I really loved Iolanthe and Frederick's close relationship in the game, they had natural chemistry and interactions that I enjoyed regardless of which route you're on. I was initially worried about his route being awkward as a romantic route but I was surprised to find myself loving their route, how natural it felt and understood why both would or has fallen for eachother. I kinda wished it was more explict but I guess it's fine.
Leopond another character who's interactions with Iolanthe were also great to watch. Leopond is such a charming character, I thought that I would find him boring but I was proven wrong.
Charllotte is sweet, I liked that in her route, she grows as a person and becomes more confident and independent despite the small amount of time interacting with Iolanthe. All Charlotte needed was someone to not chelter her, talk her down and beleive in her, Their ending is one of my favourites. To be honest I also didn't think much of Charlotte as a love interest based on my 1st impression of her but she surprised me.
I would go on about what I loved with each route but i'll just stop with my favourite 3.
But yes, I really loved this game and the fact that it's confirmed to be getting a sequel just makes me happy since all endings with each routes would be great with a continuation (especially Leopond, Sofia and Frederick's endings) and since the plot for the sequel seems to be deeper I'm sure it'll be just as good or better than this game. Overall, I hope for continued success for this game and any game you make in the future!
Based on their history of the devs with their previous games. I can be confident to say it's not a scam. Although it seems they have put this game in the back burner for a long time due to real life stuff.
That being said. There has been no update whatsoever, for months, not even a post saying "I'm sorry, we are very much behind but are still working on it". Which itself really disappoints me, I understand that they cannot sacrifice their entire time for creating a game if they have other obligations but there is no reason not to at-least inform the people who have pre-ordered this game what the status is. Just anything to let us know what's going on. I don't think it's asking much....
