Hi! Thanks for dropping by. Hihi. Actually, nope. :) Well, Vaughn's name is. Lol. But Mark... I designed his whole character (personality) based on someone I know from real life. =)

I am a big HM fan though. <3 MFOMT was my first game back when I was still a kid. Oh, how I love that series.

The game felt kinda short, but a lot of fun. I will try out some of the other routes~
Aww, thank you! Haha. Yes, James is the kind of person who falls love pretty easily. Hahaha. And ooooh, I'm glad you liked it! I love those sorts of stories, so I really tried to incorporate it in the game. Yep, it'll be nice I think, to make a VN about Filipino mythology. Hahahaha.

Ahaa~ thank you. I hope you get them all! :) And it's so nice of you to leave some feedback as well. :)

Haha! Well, I sort of have my hands full with some other projects *ehem like this one hihi* but I'm really considering it. Hahaha. I personally love our culture and I'd love to show it to the visual novel playing world here. Hahaha.

Surprisingly, my first ending was Mark's good one. After that I went and played through all the endings (because I was playing without saves most problems for me was getting Vaughn's best end since I forgot to save on the last choice when getting the True/Neutral one since I was kinda ignoring everyone. It took me several tries of accidentally getting someone else's end to get back to his Good end which was just awesome <3
(and yay for no distance relationship)
The neutral true end also felt nice, sadly I can't quite say that about the other neutral ends. I did like good ends for everyone, but their neutral/bad ones felt sort of strange. I'd have probably expected the bad ends more like being rejected cos they didn't like the girl, not being rejected cos she rejected them first yet cried rivers about it later. Got a similar feeling about the neutral ends since all I really could feel was "gosh, the only reason you didn't get together was cos you were the first one to friendzone"
Overall it was a really nice game and I quite enjoyed it. Good job! :)
The boys had a nice variety and the girls were interesting too. Luz was adorable.
Not entirely sure what was my fave route.
Vaughn's best end felt really nice..hmm.. and I quite liked Mark and Arvin too. As others, I just shipped James with Luz so the ending just felt awkward even though he was blushing around Casey throughout the whole game. I think my fave might have been Arvin after all or at least he was the one I most wished for an actual art and CG with. The after-fight scene. Askejfwefwfw cg plz was what I kept thinking the whole time it took place, haha.
I love it when games with romance option have possible love interests both male and female. I wish there were more games like that. :<

Awww, goodness, thank you so much for getting all the endings! :) That really warms my heart you know. Hihihi. :") I'm glad someone took the time to finish my game.
Haha! To be honest, Vaughn wasn't supposed to be an obtainable. But one day while making this week long project, I suddenly missed my "pretend" older brother who's far away because he's in college already. -____- So I was like, "Oh, if only he could just stay here. :(" And I think my feelings kinda reflected in my writing. :)

Oh my, I didn't realize that, sorry! Yeah, she couldn't be totally rejected since... they're childhood friends! I don't want to ruin their friendship. :( Since all of my characters are based on real people, I feel sort of attached to them so I don't really want to ruin any relationships. (Except for Mark's. Hihihi. I'm evil right. Trololol.)

But for the friendzone thingy, Casey didn't mean to do that! It's just that, here in the Philippines, girls are discouraged from confessing their feelings to the boy they like. So Casey just waited. And waited. For nothing. Without showing that she liked them at all! So, this is sort of like a "Don't imitate her." kind of thing. After all, if we just wait around passively, how will we get what (or in this case, who) we want? Sure, I believe in waiting and being patient, but Casey was so passive that, like you said, she was bordering on friendzone already, right? :))
Aww, thank you! It helps that they're all based on people I know in real life. ^^ All my characters are like that, even the ones from my other project. Lol. I merged all the people I know into different characters. So thank you so much for complimenting that. It means a lot. =)

Oh, if only I could draw well! Or... if only I had a tablet! If only I could, I sure would make CGs or art for games! Loool. I love drawing the characters from my stories so much, but they're forever on paper only. Hahaha.

Hey.I'm Filipino,too o v o
Thanks for making a great game :D.

I found a dialogue error or whatever you might call it in Arvin's route.When she was being pressured into asking him out already.
When MC was talking to her Mom and Granny(or Nanay) 'I just realized,ever since we arrived here,this is the first time nanay actually got home before me.'
But why 'before'
Mc was the first to get home as the two prolly went shopping. .-.
And I was surprised when Mark suddenly appread.Only his name,that is,instead of mom being the one saying Mark's dialogue.Lolol.Ithought he just appeared out of nowhere.

And I really laughed when I found out Luzviminda's name.Creative,really.I thought it was a really weird name at first and wondered why you named her that way. :))
Keep up the good work!~

Thank you for playing this game, MisterLala! :)

Ahaaa, sorry, I must have been confused. XD I completely overlooked that!
Haha, oh, which part is that? :)

Yuuup, I think the name Luzviminda is a really creative one. I don't know who thought of it, but it's really cool. I think I said it in the game, that it came from the three main islands of the Philippines: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. =)) I named her that way because... it's a name that's proudly Filipino. ^^ It's one of the most Filipino names of all Filipino names out there. Hahaha.

Again, thank you! :)

Oh my goodness that was freakin' amazing. owo

Hey! I'm a Filipina btw! :) I really appreciate what you did for our lovely homeland here, and the bits and pieces about our culture is a really nice touch! It's ironic though, I hardly played the games mentioned here! I was such an indoors kid watching TV all day. xD I personally enjoyed the campfire scene with the supernatural trivia. ^_^

I love how you used the name "Luzviminda"! I was fascinated myself when I first heard of that name as a kid, and I'd love for non-Filipinos to see how creative and witty Filipinos are by coming up with that name!

I'm really picky about the art when it comes to the games I play, so to be honest, I wasn't really caught by this firsthand... until I found out it's set in our country. I thought it was interesting and I wanted to see how you showcased our culture, so I gave it a shot. And boy, was it worth it!

I went for Mark first since he looked like the easiest one to get without a walkthrough. And I was right. Haha! I got his Good Ending right away. It was touching, but for me, not touching enough. It felt cliche, like Mark mentioned himself.

So I went for Vaughn next since I heard he's got the true ending. I think I like the "words of wisdom" here the best... but I'm a shallow person and I don't really find Vaughn attractive so I don't really like him that much :P /shot Btw I totally got the Cinderella III reference before the mom mentioned it herself!

And finally, I went for ARVIN! <3 I'm a sucker for the 'bad boy with the heart of gold' character (Devlin from Summer Found Me by glassheart, anyone?) and knew right from the start that I was gonna love him, but I tried to be divergent so I chose not to pick him first. But my oh my he is just perfect! The events in his path are my absolute favorites! I would go over to your house right now and kiss your feet just to show you how much I love you! SERIOUSLY.

I hope you don't think I'm weird! Then again, we're otaku. We're supposed to be weird. xD Hopefully, I'm not TOO weird! >< Well, thanks a KAZILLION times for making this game! Good luck with your future projects! MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT PO! Kudos to you for being a proud Filipino!

PS
Didn't go for James. He's just not my type. :P

Oh my gosh, haha, thank you! I'm smiling like a crazy person at your comments here. Hahaha. Shucks, you're so sweet. <3 Thank youuuuu.
And me too! But, it was more because my parents were super strict and most of the time, I wasn't allowed to go out and play those games. Haha, so I made our protagonist play it, so that, in a way, it's like I played it as well. Hahaha.

I knoooow, isn't it so creative? I wonder who made that up. Haha. I had a teacher from nursery school that had that time, and she was the kindest teacher ever. Lol. I'm also really proud of our country and its people. Hahaha.

Gosh, thank you! Hahaha, you are just way too sweet. Awwww. <3
Well, I'm not a good artist, and I don't even have a drawing tablet so I just used free art. Haha. I'm still really glad you gave it a try though. Thank you!

Mark's is really the easiest. Haha, because Casey had a crush on her before, so, I thought the "default" and expected ending was that they'd end up together. Irl though, that isn't the case. *wink*wink* As for Vaughn, haaa, I love that guy. Haha! And that's cool! I just couldn't help myself. <3

Oh my, hahahaha, you're so cute. Hahaha, such a sweetie. All of the characters in this VN are based from people in my life (friends and crushes haha) and... yeah, both the real-life and VN Arvin are lovable, like you said. :)) Both can be a headache at times as well. Hahaha.

Poor Jamie. Hahaha. :) Well, he was based on my close friend AND my younger bro, so, yeah. Hahahaha. Plus, James is just an extra, sort of.
He's really meant for Luz.
And, nope, you're not too weird. Haha. And even if you are, I don't care, haha, you're so sweet and nice. Looool. :) Thank youuuuu! I see you have a project too, fellow Filipino. Haha. I'll support you in any way that I can. Haha. If you need help, don't hesitate to PM me,l okay? :) Again, thank you so much!
