(I commented in my rating a while ago but I didn't realize that reviews weren't visible to the public):

Really well done "animation", I love how smooth everything feels even as the time changes. Very cool concept and very well executed. Especially loved Bahorel's friends playing d&d juxtaposed with them eating out of a skull.

Thank you! I'm so pleased you love this version of it. It will remain "just a demo" for a while, so I am glad you appreciate it as is!

Thanks for your feedback! I'm not sure how to add a mute button in Twine, so for now the player should just feel free to mute the tab if they don't like the soundscape.

This is super funny! Great job. The absurd premise was executed really well. I think it would be greatly improved with subtitles though or even just a basic textual aid (Your mother vs ... also your mother?).

Thank you! I'm hoping to finish the Demo relatively soon, the finished product may take a little longer :)

Thank you very much! I hope it lives up to your expectations.

Thanks so much for your comment! I wouldn't say it's based on my experiences exactly haha, I've never spent the winter in a cabin with a wolf after all, but I would say it is honest to my own experiences.

Thank you! I look forward to showing it to you and hope you enjoy it. :)

Thank you! I'm excited about making progress too!

Play and find out! :)

That sounds super interesting! I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more about it as development goes on with the project :)

Wow I loved playing this! The art is lovely, the story is lovely... Unexpectedly I like all three of the love interests a lot, Sinclair surprised me with his moment of genuine kindness and sincerity and would love to get more of those. Worthington is definitely who I would marry IRL, friendship and respect > romantic love for a foundation of a marriage, especially a 19th century marriage. Guy is who my Miss Fernside is holding out for, at least until he actually proposes marriage to Emily. Lowkey Ludlow is the most attractive out of any of them but unfortunately personality-wise he's.... hm. Definitely one of my favorite VNs so far even though it's finished. I'm hoping for some kind of chance to try and make up with Emily too.

I forgot to comment when I played it for the first time, but it's almost a month later and I'm still thinking about it! I really really loved this game. I love historical dramas and media in general, and your research for this game really shows in a way that is extremely satisfying. This is the game I have unknowingly wanted to play for a long time, and I want to sincerely thank you for satisfying a need I did not know I have for queer visual novels set during the 18th or 19th centuries.

I deeply and unaccountably loved Alas, and I admit I'm guilty of wanting Tris and Alas to "make nice" as you spoke about in your retrospective. I think it's because I identified more with Alas than with Tris, felt his pain more strongly, and wanted Tris to learn how to treat him more respectfully and lovingly... which is definitely how my first (and many of my subsequent) playthrough(s) played out, so I was definitely satisfied with that. ...I don't know what that says about me, haha, but thank you again for writing that option even in what is ultimately meant to be a story about a breakup. There's so much else about the game and the story that I loved, but I don't have enough space to talk about it all.

Also in your retrospective you wrote about queer pain and the need for stories about it that are not voyeuriste. I have a lot of thoughts about that also... I know a lot of people enjoy pure fantasy escapism, playing through a setting where homophobia doesn't exist, but I've never been able to get much out of that sort of story (though I'm glad it exists). I'd rather have something that feels honest to my experience— where things may be painful, and that when the characters find love and happiness it feels... not earned exactly, but honest. Like it could really exist, where queer love and happiness is not an escapist fantasy but something that is real and something that can exist alongside grief and danger and complication and everything else. Anyway that's sort of what I got from this story. :)
