Hello creator and others, I would like to introduce myself as THE GamerMan ( very small channel currently), and I made a video, which will turn into a mini video series, on this game, and if you guys do not mind to come check it out.
I had such a great time playing your game!! The characters were very interesting and the fact that their profiles contain their MBTI types was a pleasant surprise!! As an INFJ I felt really connected to Diven but all characters were a fun ride. I also liked the combination of visual novel sprites with pixel art, it was a nice touch and made the game more engaging. Still, my favorite part was definitely the dialogues, I'm a big sucker for dialogue-heavy games and yours was a lot of fun!!
You really need to include a major character death warning in the bio of this game somewhere, I was not prepared for something like that and I'm afraid I don't like to play games with scenarios like that.
On a slightly lighter note the art and game design is well put together, I liked the characters personalities and thought they worked really well together.
Overall best of luck with your game but you should warn people that there is going to be lots of death in a game before they download it.
Hi, i played the recent update and it crash a few times, but the plot is amazing and the characters funny. It seems it's going to be a very tragic story, but the funny moments were awesome. I would like to suggest a little bit of more hints to solve the puzzles (N°2 in my case) for stupid people like me XD.
Overall it was an amazing demo and i'm looking forward to the final game!!!
THAT I ONLY PLAYED THE DEMO RIGHT NOW EVEN THO I'VE HAD IT IN MY FOLDERS SINCE LAST YEAR RESZJDXYGHJKM
Majority of the characters are lovable (some of them I might need more interactions, but pretty good for all of them!) All of them are pretty interesting, wondering what's their story~ alsoimhurtWHYWHYWHY
Story-wise, I love how it's unfolding! I'm not really good at giving compliments, but I can say that if this were a novel, I'd 100% binge read it even if it takes me months without any breaks XD. ItssointenseIactuallystartedpanickingaroundtheelevatorpart
I actually enjoyed the new gameplay mechanics in this game? I've played any visual novels with the same mechanics! The escape room was enjoyable, puzzle was challenging, but all is well the amount of dog food left me dumbfounded because I still can't understand it
I don't know what to say anymore BUT I LOVE IT <3
Overall looking forward to see this game completed! <3
I've been a little hesitant to download the game at first, mainly because i thought it would focus too much on sci-fi (I'm not really sure where I got that from? lol) element and I wouldn't be able to finish the puzzles. But it was actually very enjoyable! The graphics and mechanics were really nice. I've already gotten a bit attached to some characters, so I will definitely follow the development of this game! I can't wait to see it finished ^^ Good luck!
This was such a fun game! I enjoyed the art style and the characters were very interesting. The story was on a whole new level and I instantly felt drawn to it. I really liked the fact that you have the different sins in the story and the concept was something I never heard of before. I can't wait for the full game, keep up the good work :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
I'm not going to lie, this was extremely fun! Saeva reminded me of Lycoris a bit (face-wise), but your art style's really cute and the puzzles were absolutely lovely. I was (truthfully) a bit stupid in muddling around the escape room but I figured it out!
