Thank you for playing. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Life is busy!
I believe that crashes in the battle system are stemming from an in development EXE being used to run the game. A shame but it is what it is. I'm glad you enjoyed the gameplay overall however. That is my main focus, so to know I did well in that regard is heartening. I will strive to continue improving on it.
Story-wise, I feel my hands were tied on art and time, but I do acknowledge that it's the weakest part. I have plans for things to get more exciting, of course, I just need to get there. But I'll also be thinking about how to improve the beginning.
Thanks for your feedback. I'll be taking everything into account to apply improvements when I resume on it.
