Hi all~! I basically just made this topic to talk about what I liked about the game. I finished all the routes earlier today, and I'm really excited for episode 2!

The two characters I liked best were Saleos and Kali. These two seem to hit Lilim's issues and past the hardest in my opinion, so they stood out to me as more emotional than the other routes. Anzu was interesting but  felt distant-which is obviously on purpose, it doesn't surprise me the character whose age is ????? is like that. She didn't BS when it came to Lilim's delusions, going straight for the jugular. I honestly can't wait to hear more about her as there's clearly a lot more going on under the surface. I don't like how she treats Kali though.

My favorite scenes were in Saleos' and Kali's routes, obviously. For Saleos specifically, it was the House scene. It's clear to me that being in a vampire House is more than just being a family, but given everything I couldn't help but view it as a touch romantic. Lilim, despite her obsession with Lucifer, considered for a moment following and staying with Saleos.  He then popped that bubble like a idiot but it was a major character moment for Lilim which stood out to me. As a whole, I viewed this route as pretty sweet - Saleos and Lilim are both outsiders looking for honest companionship and they seem to provide each other that.

For Kali, her whole ending was wonderful to me. I won't go into too much but it was nice seeing Lilim and her break free of the things that bound them, even for a moment. The two are parallels with each other and it's interesting seeing how the two of them contrast. Kali and Lilim seem to better each other and I love that quality quite deeply.  It's also pretty funny to me how Lilim is STILL so oblivious to how she feels about Saleos in his route but got it right away in Kali's lmao. Makes sense, given that Anzu's presence would speed that realization up quicker, but still. Also, Kali legit has the best design in the game imo-Anzu is not wrong when she says Kali is the prettiest thing she owns. I could look at her sprite for hours, she's so aesthetically pleasing. And cute!

Gaki is.....Gaki. His route was the funniest but also I never really like pervert characters. So he already had the deck stacked against him. Just...those endings....poor Lilim.

As to the game itself, ghosts seem to matter a lot. I have some theories, but I'll leave them to myself for now.   :D I loved how the world was shown subtly! The player is not explained everything and there are a lot of moments in-game where there's a clear implication the characters get that the player does not. It leaves everything very mysterious and I want to get to know more.

So, thank you devs for this wonderful game! I enjoyed it a lot !

Developer

Thank you so much, Answerless! We're glad that you enjoyed the game!

Ashe, the writer, really put a lot of heart into the game. She expanded the outline I gave her, and she came up with these intricate backstories for the characters and the world, and we're just so excited to get started on Episode 2 when we can. I really wish we could talk about some of the things we have planned for it, but I feel like that would diminish the experience.

Gaki is definitely not the route most people will play because he's the best choice for Lilim, lol. Thankfully, that's exactly how we intended him to be. He's like an amalgamation of the things neither Ashe nor I enjoy in the flirty bishounen tropes. But, I will say that we have some interesting things planned for him in the future.

I don't want to comment too much on Saleos and Kali, just because I know I'll accidentally go into Episode 2 territory, but they're definitely the "main" routes. Along with Gaki, too, although theirs are more serious. That said, I hope we can still do Anzu and the final character route justice, too. 

I feel like Episode 2 will end up being significantly longer than Episode 1. Eep!
