Yay, thank you so much for this breakdown of the lovely bg work you did.

You guys are the best!!! As I mentioned it's only because you released your RenPy scripts that I could figure out one of the Cookbook codes had an error. (Which reminds me, I should put the updated code in the Cookbook section of the forum...)

Anyways, stuff like this a TREMENDOUS help to those working on our first game. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Thank you so much!!!

Finally played it and... why the fuck hadn't I done it earlier? Seriously, it's so lovely ;u; I won't go into detail right now, but that's a great idea and really well done, too!

Also, wonderful characters! I really can't say who I like the most, everyone of them grew on me! (Especially the boys.)

The art was also gorgeous hnnnnnnnng and OMG that GUI. <3

My reaction to the post-prologue: Dafuq did I just read?

I really loved this! Totally blew my mind.

GREAT JOB. ^^v

Played this a long time ago and only now do I have the time to write a review. I might get some minor details wrong, so sorry :C
Camille wrote:Not sure why you have that one part in spoiler tags... Auro and I are perfectly fine with negative feedback.
I've seen more than my fair of fans who reacted to negative feedback directed towards the creators. It's really strange and not at all a pretty thing to see :/ But if you guys are okay with it, here I go. Keep in mind that it's my pure opinion, so do with it what you will.

Truth be told, I haven't played through all of the prologue routes yet. I don't think I will unless I want to study the cliches of otome writing because it's painful for me >_>
It would have been more believable if there was more than one background during that section because keeping it at the restaurant made it feel like Lily* lived at the restaurant; that, or she passes out at night and no one bothers to drag her out of the place. I'm pretty sure she doesn't do either of the two :/

As for the post-prologue, it wasn't engaging to me for some strange reason. The twist was a slight surprise, but what came after that? Slice of life and nothing too out of this world. It felt like a letdown to me since I was expecting something on a conspiracy level >_> Pierre/Josh's narration wasn't redundant or boring, but the characters didn't interest me so much. Ethan was the nice guy who can't take care of himself, Liam was the guy lusting for your love, Angelina was the girl controlled by her parents' expectations, and Laura was the girl trying to keep up with the reputation of her siblings.
When I read story, I like to take something along with me long after reading it; here, I didn't find anything to take with me or remember. In fact, I had to turn on the game again to look up the names and make sure I didn't switch them up. I did connect with Laura the most but her route seemed like it was somewhat rushed or skimped on. IDK, that was the feeling I got while reading it :C

In terms of art, the sprites were nice to glance at, but the more I look at them the more unsettled I get. Whenever I'd look at them while reading, I'd get distracted with their eyes and wonder where they were looking. I mean, they're not looking at me or each other, so what are they staring at? I might be the only one bothered by that kind of stuff >_> BGs were good, no qualms there. As for the CGs, I know you guys had NaNoRenO time constants, but the anatomy was not so great.
One that startled me a lot was Angelina's CG. It wasn't the context of the scene itself, but rather her eye. When I saw it, I thought it was going to slide off her face or something D:
Needless to say, the CGs could have used a bit more fix up on some places.
And has someone pointed out that Liam's CG has the wrong outfit on him? I did a double-take on that scene.
I still find myself humming or whistling some of the OST sometimes, but the music was a tad bit too loud during gameplay. That's all I'll say on it since the music was bought from a variety of sources.

Final verdict: Overall, RisAmo is a game that ranks among one of the top on LSF in terms of quality and production values. It wasn't able to captivate me like it has with so many other players here, but I can respect the amount of work you guys put into it. Worth a play if you want a different look at the romance genre, but so much potential was turned over in favor for a slice of life story. Not bad in of itself, but there could have been more.

Maybe if I feel like it, I'll write you guys some Lily*xBroom fics >_> My ship shall never sink!

.....................This was one of the most surprising games EVER O__O
I'm still totally mindblown.
I mean, when you do the postprologue you suddenly think "Oh-oh, I remember something simliar at the beginning of "Alien", everbody run, they are gonna eat you!!"
And then happens what happens without warning xD
But seriously, I enjoyed it so much. My hand hurts from all that clicking but I just had to play it through.
Even though I wasn't able to talk to Laura properly (guess, it was wrong of me to accuse her of being helpless %D).

But seriously.
The idea, the graphics, the music, the "cheesy" text.
And I can so totally relate to Ethan :'D

Seriously, the only missing part was making Lily* go all on Laura or Angelina and my head would have exploded from the awesomeness that someone did put almost every genre in one game *__*
Never stop making games, NEVER EVER!

P.S.
Thanks for making the save slots show the route. I was sometimes irritated why some characters talked to me despite trying to get someone else. That is a good way of showing the player did something wrong ^^

Thanks for all the comments on RisAmo! ;_; Auro and I went through a lot of work and stress to get the game out, so we're really floored by all the responses, good or bad. Even if you didn't like the game so much, it still requires time and effort to get through it even once, so we appreciate you choosing to spend your time on our game.

If you guys haven't seen it yet, I wrote a Cyanide Tea blog post a little while back that addresses most of the common questions/concerns regarding the game. Aaand I wrote this mini-rant/essay on Tumblr about
homophobic comments we've received about the game.
The blog post and rant/essay have spoilers, too, so if you haven't finished the game yet, you should probably wait until afterwards if you want to read them. Note: that's my personal/fandom tumblr. If you want to follow it, go ahead, but I post a lot of stuff that might not be very relevant to you. XD I have a side tumblr specifically for VN/Cyanide Tea stuff if you'd like to follow that instead.

@CheeryMoya:
We considered a lot of more twisty/crazy story ideas for the post-prologue, but ultimately decided that if we wanted to be able to finish the game in a month, the plot couldn't be too complex. Plus, most of our games involve conspiracies and huge plot twists and whatnot, so we wanted to take a step back and do something more light-hearted for a change. |D;

Not all people, even in real life, are super complex or strange. I suppose my end goal with writing the post-prologue characters was that I wanted them to be realistic and relatable. For the most part, I think I succeeded on that since a lot of people have commented as such. It's a shame you couldn't find something you really liked/could take away from the game, but not everybody is going to, after all. That's why there are so many different games in the world. XD Anyway, thanks for your time both playing the game and writing a review.

Oh, uh, I played it. Enjoyed it, though I'm not sure what to say that anyone else hasn't. My only real issue is that
the twist they're in an alternate dimension/planet/thing does seem to come out of nowhere. The only thing I could think of that fix that would be to at least vaguely hint at it somehow, like something sort of weird happens that's like a game glitch.

The game is now available in German thanks to Marcel Weyers.

+ The German version is using Ren'Py 6.14 so if there are any problems with it, please let me know.
+ I had to split up some of the text screens differently because the German translation made some parts overflow the textbox. So the German version has slightly more screens than the English version and things don't flow exactly the same, but it's pretty close.
+ I edited the chibi CGs so that the text would be in German.

I finally got around to play this!
I can't believe I managed to avoid all the spoilers for this game so far, haha! Except the fact i knew the game did a turn after the "prologue".

While reading/playing the prologue I was like "uh... this is so cheesy... when does this become cool?"

And man, I *loved* the post-prologue! *-*
Pierre, Angelina and Liam were my faves, I think :) I think the only character I didn't click much with was Laura.

I'm really bad at reviewing things, sorry ^^;
I loved it <3

When I have the time, I need to draw you some fan art <3

Don't trust your memory, and don't blindly trust what others teach you either.
Research, observation, analysis, experimentation and practice are the key! (:

This game is a class act.
The characters are particularly visually appealing and I appreciated the subtle eye-movements which brought them to life.

Loved the novelty of the change between first and second acts, really interesting twist which adds another dimension.
Some of the conversations got a little repetitive in the second half, but the humour and fresh approach really lift this game into a work of art.

We've heard some mixed things about the twist... Some people said that there were some hints in the prologue that they picked up on, and some said that it did come out of nowhere. XD; I probably would do it differently if I was writing the script now, but I suppose this is mainly another issue that came about because of the rushed timeline of planning and production for the game.

Anyway, super glad that you enjoyed the game. (:

XD It's amazing you managed to avoid spoilers! I'm glad that you were able to fully enjoy the game for yourself, then. Haha that's a pretty common reaction to the prologue. XD I'm happy that you enjoyed the rest of the game! We'd be very honored to receive fanart from you. *A*

Thank you so much! The second half was probably repetitive just because I didn't have as much time to plan out the story... Other people have said that the post-prologue was rather formulaic and I apologize for that. :C It was the result of rushed planning due to this being for NaNoRenO. Anyway, we're very pleased that you enjoyed the game and think of it as a work of art. (:
