Aside from that I really like what I see so far and characters’ backstories intrigue me to no end.
P. S. I’m sorry I’m not very good at giving praise (/□＼*)・゜
The part before encounter feels deeply intimate like going through someone's diary. I have to re-read it to fully understand how I feel but for the first time it was a little hard for me to concentrate. We learn nothing about main character during prologue and after finishing it I was left with a feeling rather than facts about her. There is this atmosphere of longing and sadness but aside from that there’s nothing left inside my head that I can say about MC. For some reason I can’t recall what she was thinking about while she was alone.
Also with a different text box format there’s no distinction in text between what MC thinks or feels and her actions. Usually we read internal monologue then *click* it disappears and we get next few lines about what is our character doing. Here everything blurs into a wall of text.
“At least for now she wants to figure out how she ends up here and for what reason.”
“She tests her limbs again, they’re heavy to move etc”
Maybe you could change text color or use cursive writing to make those parts more distinguished?
Oh, I'm looking forward to this so much! I mostly play VNs for romance aspect but both of your games (this and RE one... oh my, finally Leon's hotness got acknowledged in a otome-ish kinda game) are so well written and hilarious that even if there's not a tiny bit of romance just jokes and puns I'd enjoy it nonetheless.
I see you post updates regularly. Thanks! It's good to know you're still passionate about the game and it's progress is going steadily!
The premise is interesting though rough around corners at the moment. I guess you're planning to focuse more on character intaractions and dialogue than on the story which is great! That's my favourite type of otomes. Sprites look absolutely lovely !they even blink! and ability to choose character's personality is also a nice touch. I hope kind persona won't end being too-kind-for-her-own-good type and bordering being stupid. I imagine her acting attentive to others and maybe soft spoken but please don't fall for silly girl goody two shoes archetype.
There're a few things that bother me. Mainly, it's prologue part. Did our protagonist undergo a serious facial surgery just to wade off some creep? It's a bit weird since there was no mention of her moving to another town. I mean what is the point to change your apperance if you live in the same place and this guy still knows your adress.
Also, she's just 18 years old! Won't her parents or Ryuu try to help her with stalker situation or at least complain that she decided to do something that drastic?
Where did she get money for the operation if she's a high schooler? Ryuu's clothers don't look anything like school uniform so maybe he and mc are colledge students?
Anyways, the demo looks very promising and I look forward to enjoy the full version in the future!
