Love! Thanks for the update and hard work.

I feel really bad, but...I have to agree. Didn't get very far because it was difficult to read. If you guys need help with grammar and whatnot, I'd be willing to help since I have some experience with renpy. This looks like a super good game, the grammar unfortunately makes it unreadable.
Exactly. I feel like they shouldn't be currently charging full price for an unfinished game, it doesn't sit well. If they're going to charge a full price that's more expensive than regular otomes, they should at least update on when the full game will be released. Very frustrating to have paid this much and it's not even fully released and have gotten nothing back but silence. It's been half a year, for christ's sake. My mistake for not reading the fine print barely even mentioned and assuming from the huge price that it was done, I guess.
The writing is beautiful, it's definitely worth the wait, and the character development is beyond amazing, which is exactly why I wouldn't recommend starting it until they finish it up.
Wanted to add to this! Makes me so happy to see other people who support this game. I played an early demo for this game many years ago and am still patiently waiting on it. Take your time, and know that there are people who wholeheartedly support you from the shadows haha!
Have to agree about A2. One of those games that really hit me when I played as a teenager, I've played so many otome games and there's only a few that really hit me in the heart. A2 was one of them. Thanks for all of your hard work.
Are the episodes stand-alone, or do I need to play the first to understand the story? If it's a series, would I have to wait for future episodes to get the complete story or does everything wrap up in this episode? Asking because I usually wait till a VN or episodic series like this is fully done before I play and get into it!
Also, have to say, I played Fantasia and Doppelganger back years ago when I was younger and they were some of the best VNs that made a huge impression on me and were some of my favorites. I remember playing them back when there weren't as many English VNs but the market was still starting to grow, and your games had so much more depth to them than the regular japanese translated otomes I used to play. Your hard work over the years has been fully appreciated and I just thought it was important for you to know. (No lie, Fantasia 2 is probably my top otome from playing as a kid because of the adventure and romance aspects! I'm a sucker for adventure and romance so it was so awesome for me to travel with a bunch of cute guys haha!) I'm really glad to have played your games as a kid that I'll always remember as good impressions of English VNs! :)
Will you be making a cheat at all? Like some sort of code to max out stats?
Also wanted to say that I love your games! Your stories are amazing. Halloween otome was one of my faves when I played it years ago, and this one was just as amazing. I will continue to support your amazing work!
This game lags a lot for me. When I load, save, rollback, etc., the game lags very badly. I have a gaming laptop and it runs windows 8. :/ Wish there was a fix or something for this. It's only this renpy game.
Silly question: How do you pronounce Apris? I was always saying it with a french pronunciation haha, with the "s" being silent. (Ah as in apple, and pris like "pree") But I don't think that's right. xD My friend believes it to be
"Ah" - as in apple - priss"
"Ahh - as in awful - priss"
or "Ay - priss"
It's killing us and we have to know! xD
Such a beautiful, wonderful game <3 Your game had much more soul and passion in it then most commercial, polished otomes out here. (I totally slacked off in my school studies because I was so into this game haha!) It just really made me feel like I was going on this amazing adventure with the characters. It really showed that you put a lot of time and effort into this game, story and characters. There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this game. I loved how you could shape the main character, and I specifically loved Xander's character. A lot of otomes made very bland, archetypical characters that get boring after a while. Your characters and story are all so multidimensional and complex. That barely happens nowadays, and I really appreciate your hard work to give us this beautiful game. The only things I think should've been different were the grammar/spelling issues and more sprites for Xander--he constantly looked evil and insincere with his smug smile sprite and it was misleading haha. xD
Thank you thank you thank you. I look forward to seeing more work for you! You should definitely make your next game commercial, I'd pay good money to play your games!
It's not your computer, half of people are having this issue. Just look at the steam community. There's a horrible lag and it hasn't been fixed. :/ It's disappointing because people keep complaining and they don't seem to care at all. No responses whatsoever.
Just wanted to say that this is one of the best VNs I've played, and I've played too many to count. I love this so much!! I can't believe this was free, you honestly deserve so much for this game and all the work you put in. The story is truly unlike any other. It's not fluffy like other VNs, it's real. The emotions of the characters are raw, and the characters are flawed yet beautiful. Definitely different than the basic archetypes for VNs and games in general. Really love the character development and the story in general! Don't even get me started on the music; I've found myself singing stuff everywhere I go haha. But I don't wanna ramble on too much, I just really like this game a lot and I appreciate all the hard work you put in. I wish it got more funds and attention that it deserves. Heck, if there's any way that I could help out besides funding, I'd love to help out! (Writing, programming?!) I just really wanna see this game complete one day and am looking forward to any epilogues that possibly come out. But please don't stress yourself out and take your time!
Thanks again for everything!
You based your knowledge on your HIGHSCHOOL AMERICAN government class, as if that meant you held all the information to all government. Also, there are PLENTY of forms of government with underdeveloped leaders. You don't know as much as you think about politics at all, so you might want to get over yourself a bit. Please do us all a favor and stay in school a bit longer. Also, honestly, SERIOUSLY, how would you feel if someone told you to "get better" at your art, and without you even ASKING for their opinion? Maybe this is better for them; that's why it's called ART. You might as well have said it was bad, it was extremely inconsiderate.
But you know what, I'm not gonna argue with you anymore; obviously there's a stick somewhere up in that rear of yours that can't be moved. If you want to take serious meaning out of a game genre thats mainly meant for romance then that's your own problem. (By the way, the definition of a game is, "a form of play" or "an activity engaged for amusement," so again: not meant to be taken serious even if you decide to do so.) You were very rude, and if you can't see that and want to make excuses then that's on you. But maybe you should keep that in mind for the future, because not everyone will appreciate your rude 'criticism' and overall dryness. (To be blunt, no one likes a buzzkill/stick in the *ss.)
I hope you learn to lighten up a bit. I won't be responding again, as I see it's a waste of time with you. Regardless, have a good day. :)
"""I take AP Gov in high school (and it hasn't even been one whole semester of the class yet!) so I think I know everything there is to know about politics. College classes? Political science degree? Who needs those, I take an advanced high school class and know everything. AMERICAN-style government definitely applies to all sorts of government in the world, even in this game. Taking AP Gov automatically means that I can't suspend my belief of reality to just relax and play a GAME. Games definitely HAVE to be realistic.
BTW, your art is bad. I don't care that you spent a lot of time working on it and that art isn't easy, and I don't care that I might be making you feel insecure about yourself and your artistic abilities. I'm gonna be rude as HELL anyways. Fix it.""" -Melocule
