Awwww, cute!! Super congrats on releasing your game. :3
I really like how polished it looks! I'm really diggin' the color scheme and the logo, haha.
I kinda wished it was longer, because I liked it. Mason opened up rather quickly -- didn't feel there was enough detective snooping and drama/tension! But you established the characters, gave us the premise, told us that they're on speaking terms and that the MC already had feelings for him, and then gave us not one but two good endings. So no harm, no foul.
- The bright yellow dialogue box, while super cute, made the white text hard to read, especially since all of the sprites had white on their lower halves. I would suggest a much darker outline on the white than just the gray. But I'm all for bright colors, just with dark text (or dark outline).
- On the reverse side, I LOVED LOVED the instant messenger window. It was perfect, the text was so pleasant to read, it was cute, etc. I would've loved more IM conversations, if not just to show that Mason could be a different person when not face-to-face or in front of others.
"he looked at me like I just said "hurr hurr""
- Nice music! The jazz worked great at setting up the tone.
Again, big congratulations
on your first VN! Yaaay!
