I loved the unexpected appearance of a Welsh word.
Those bloody onion fairies got to me again.
Edit: Ok three times. I was not emotionally prepared for this.
This isn't a criticism, just something I've noticed in the last couple of updates.
If it was me, I would be craving some alone time by now. And the MC might not need the money, but I'd be dying for some routine activity like a job or volunteer work to give his life some sort of purpose, even if it's only a couple of afternoons a week.
I have been unemployed since the start of COVID and I'm feeling incredibly antsy. I need to do something useful or it feels as if my life is slipping away. Anyway, that's just my personal existential crisis.
The 0.1.1 and 0.1.2 updates were bug fixes, so they can be released fairly quickly. Content updates will take much longer.
I'm guessing that the next content update will be 0.2, but who knows when that will be.
I like it a lot so far.
I don't know if anyone else has reported this but when Hannah and Skylar enter Appealing Apparel, the Submissive Maid and Slutty Schoolgirl dialogue has been swapped.
I agree with you about Alice, she needs a LOT more attention.
There are times when the MC acknowledges that he's been neglecting her and that she deserves more attention, and then he seems to go out of his way to hang out with any other girl except her.
I get the feeling that the MC sees her as more of a sister than he does with the other two, possibly because of their shared history with Martin. I think that has pushed him into a more traditional protective big brother role rather than the boyfriend role with the other two.
He seriously needs to make time for her, not just one off special events like a date followed by a night in a hotel. If she's that horny and time is limited then even a quickie in the bathroom would do.
That's the problem with harems, it's difficult to give each woman the attention she deserves.
I've noticed a slight problem.
It seems like I played the side quests out of order. I finished Sage's quest before completing Chanel's one. There is a whole section of Sage's quest (and of course Total Defence Party that appears once you finish it) that references the business opportunity that I am only now being offered as I finish the Chanel's quest.
I held off finishing Chanel's quest as it got a bit too grindy at one point so I spent some time on the other side quests. Then I got locked into the end sequence of Sage's quest.
My recommendation to anyone playing this is to play the side quests in order and leave Total Defence Party alone until you've finished Chanel's quest.
I broke down at the bit in chapter 13 where he leaves the photo of Lori behind. It struck quite close to home for me, I had to take a break.
If I had a single remaining photo of a long lost loved one and I had one final chance to take it with me or lose it forever, you bet I would take it with me. I wouldn't risk my life to retrieve it but he's not short of space or in a rush so it didn't make sense to me to just leave it behind.
I'm facing a huge dilemma.
I want to play this all in one go, it usually takes me about 3 - 3.5 hours to play the 6 days in each update. It's half past 9 in the evening. Do I play it right now and just stay up late, or do I torture myself and leave it til tomorrow?
There's only one answer to that question. Looks like I'm in for a late night.
FYI the old version keeps its saves in the "Interactivemap" (followed by some numbers) folder. I had to reinstall and run the previous version and check the folder modified dates to discover it.
I'm just downloading the update now but thank you for this in particular "moved girls daily routine to their quests list (it seems to be more convinient than vice versa)".
I spent a lot of time swapping between the two lists, showing the relationship level there helps a lot too.
I was a bit worried when I read that before playing (always expect spoilers when reading comments), I thought it was going to be a bit rapey. Thankfully that wasn't the case.
Relationships (especially open ones) are built on trust, respect and communication. Arizona got that from Jacob, she didn't get it from Frank. The breakup scene went exactly the way I wanted it to.
I was trying to guess what the cliffhanger would be for this update and I'm so glad it wasn't what I thought it was going to be.
Maddie's surprise wasn't really a surprise as there were a few hints that the MC didn't pick up on, stupid pelican.
I'm 80% sure I think I know how this cliffhanger is going to play out, I won't say because SPOILERS.
I wanted to figure out just how much content this game has so I timed myself on a full playthrough.
Apart from chapter 1 and 2 which are pretty much twice the size of the rest of the chapters, each chapter took me an average of about 3 hours to play. It took 33 hours to play all 9 chapters. I've played it a couple of times before so I wasn't going slow.
That's a LOT of content.
I've played on a bit and I'm actually fairly certain that that's what was supposed to happen. Later there is a conversation with Sasha where she says "Johan got hysterical and caused a crash to hide the truth."
I love it when games mess with reality like that.
Being a bit of a dev myself I appreciate that. But you certainly weren't kidding when you said there was a lot of content in this release.
Personally, I'm looking forward to the trip to the old city with the Gingers and what the next boat trip will be like. I also can't wait to see where things are going with Melissa and Anna.
