You got the true ending on the first try! (some people had lots of trouble with it^^)

It was also my favourite of the seven endings! I liked how ambiguous it was at the very end. In fact, I think one thing that makes the writing of Hierofania so nice is that you don't go out of your way to explain certain things or draw attention to them, such as when Crocket says Murphy "never, ever" sits on the throne. Even after talking to Murphy and finding out more about him you still don't really have an exact explanation. Which is good, in my opinion.

I had a few nit-picky things to say after finishing but I think all of them have already been mentioned. Though after reading this thread I will say that the art is actually what drew me in. That, and the vague memory of a review by anonl.

Holy cow, fanmusic! I didn't even know that was a thing, but this is so cool!
It sounds...like I don't know, it makes one think of ruins, forgotten battlefields or something. Sad, but...sweeping?
Your Locked Souls music is really cool too, you know. Like really good rpg music. (please take it as a compliment, my writing playlists are 99% rpg music, chrono trigger/saga frontier/older final fantasies and such)

Thanks! Though the Locked Souls music isn't by me -- for some reason Soundcloud plays someone else's music after mine...! But I have written music similar to that haha. And I'm a big fan of the Chrono Trigger/Cross and Final Fantasy soundtracks too :D

Looking forward to trying out Hierofania 2.

SO I finally managed to play Hierofania after wrestling with the startup glitch and I have to sAY THAT IT'S WORTH IT DANG
The writing, the characters, the art and the setting is so well done, I can hardly find anything I dislike at all. Stranger and Murphy are baes you managed to blend cheerfulness in such a bleak setting that it's really hard not to be impressed by your writing and art design! 10/10 will recommend playing Hierofania

in my first playthrough i got the seventh ending which was bittersweet so naturally i thought i got the bad ending and played through it again....... and realized NOPE THAT'S THE TRUE ENDING GODAMMIT STRANGER. WHY. I like it though, the ambiguity is there and it shines brightly in this unusual world of Hierofania.
and i love the character interaction between Crocket and everybody really; Murphy as her father figure, Douglas unintentionally sorting out her life goals and Stranger being a massive tsundere to her lmao

since im still riding high on the enthusiasm for this game, i drew fanart of Crocket, if you don't mind sorry if she doesnt look like herself i suck at hair fml ;u;
Now im off to play Hierofania 2 and Rhyme or Reason~

The setting in this game is amazing and the art is gorgeous, definitely one of my favourites. I can't get Ending 6 for some reason though, any help? Nevermind, I dug into the game's files and found it. What a great game, moving unto Hierofania 2 now.

Thank you SO much.
It makes me so happy when I see a message for one of my games.
I hope you enjoyed the sequel, if you tried it. :)
