It's quite nostalgic to find Jun and Yuri there! *A* They look totally different thou, especially Yuri LOL Didn't even notice it was him. And Jun looks so manly there, I thought she were a man before I noticed it's Jun o__o
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoy it. Hope nothing's bothering. ;^;

The epilogue will be opened once you manage to uncover lust's past

i wasn't talking about the epilogue option in the extras, but the epilogue in the game.

After winning against Sydonai, there were only the flower event between Michelle and Gerald in the bus. Nothing else.

So, I've restarted the game almost 20 times now, so i think i took the wrongest choices the first time, because during theses runs i was able to see the Jun, Antares/Alicia et Mikhail epilogues, i've competed all the CGs and i just miss one music in the jukebox, the one between "lust demon" and "mike's theme".

I found nice to see Jun and Yuri. Can't wait to see the other chars from Doppelganger in the next episodes, and the ones from the original Reset episodes.

Now about my theories (don't read it if you havn't finished the game and read the extra epilogue) :
* The 2nd episode will be all about Greed.
* The box is the true reason why Mike's parents have divorced.
* Gerald have 3,5 personalities : the Gerald we know (amnesic), the berseker, the red eyes one, and Gerald with its memory recovered.
* The girl from the epilogue memory is Sloth, and Gerald is her "father" (the original creator of the box).
* Michelle will "fix" each demon problem, removing their "corruption" and then the box curse in the last episode.
* The new Natasha's husband has made a contract with one "demon" (or is one).
Some are crazy, but who know what could happen ?

Hehehe, I've already released a guide yesterday to help everyone. maybe I should've released it sooner. Also thanks for trying them all out! I'm really happy ^^

I don't want to respond on theories just yet, but I have to admit, you got at least one right~

Messy Running Commentary Thing:
Gerald is so funny. Or maybe it's Mike, because I sure as hell won't label my important notebooks as "Coren's Important Stuff". Oh, and Alicia is simply adorable. Wish we got to see more of her. I think Antares' little puppy-love thing for Alicia is cute too.

I like the battle theme. And the new HP bar. And I like how the MP is finally shown.
Good heavens, the globby punyan monsters are so cute!

I think it makes a lot of sense that Berserk Gerald has low defense, because
. He's probably so focused on offense because of that and thus has no sense of self-preservation.

Hahaha the incredible skulk! Oh Antares.

Oh yeah, Mike and Gerry sure live in rather pretty houses, for poor wanderers that is.

"You have very large arms, Mr Gerald. Do you go to the gym?" Alicia saying that with a very straight face just made me burst into laughter.

Mike described marriage perfectly, yep.

There's nothing in his bed, but what's UNDER his bed???

Why the heck did he sweep his piggy bank shards under his bed? He's crazy! He's crazy!
I bet the final plot twist would be that Mikhail really was buying jetpacks.
LOBSTER. I WANT LOBSTER.

I like Greed's theme song. It's so... dramatic.

"What? None of the characters in this game change clothes!"

Mike's the best advertiser ever.

"Someday I'll steal their recipes and open my own restaurant." Oh Coren-not-me, are you Kim Jong Un or something?

... Raksasa Bluey. Wow. Man. Thanks for using my suggestion, Azure.

Antares and Alicia are asdfoijkjklsjdlfkjklajs;lkdjfl;ksdlkjf cute

And oh look, Coren-not-me's shop is filled with people! Does that mean he's giving up his dream of becoming a politician some day? Nobody knows!



Oh, just some things to take note of:
- Valerie mentioned Mikhail as having short black hair at the beginning, but we see him with long purple hair later.
- Under the clues section which Mike is supposed to present to Gerald early in the game, the bottom line says "I think the reason why Kai is missing is..." instead of "Mikhail".
- Hmm, since Mike is so curious about who Gerald is, and Greed clearly knew, I thought Mike would ask him directly (given her personality) instead of keeping quiet?

Thanks for playing!

Whoops, I forgot to change some things when importing to the new version. Thank you very much for pointing it out!
We know how Mike is, one her mind is set on something she won't remember every other important thing.

just played through a few times. not sure how I've completed since I couldn't see much difference each run-through. Certainly an enjoyable game. Good job overall.

I found your story is less engaging than either the original version or doppleganger, however it's mainly due to preference (I have trouble getting into stories that more than a certain level of internet humor). Overall it seems to be the same level of quality, which is good considering the extra content.

the cgs and character sprites were good, though I did find it strange for the overall style to shift so drastically in the cgs. I liked the facial expressions.

The investigation sections were interesting, but it would've helped if the topics menu didn't always default to clues. It was annoying to have to repeatedly switch to people each time. If you decide to remake episode 2 as well, I suggest doing this again with perhaps more complexity. I think your system was held back by the overall plot in this game.

I don't know how easy Jake's system is to use, but here's some suggestions for if you make more games with tactical rpg sections:

--Don't make your player go into battle if they chose story mode. This needlessly fragments your story. It'd be a better idea to add in short descriptions of battle instead.

--Tutorial sections are important. Even if your system is easy to use, it's not good to make the player figure it out themselves. I was actually surprised you didn't put explanations in the battle during the prologue

--Show the player where the attacks hit. Trying to guess the range of each special attack was REALLY frustrating.

--Make a stats screen. It's hard to care about things like experience and leveling if I don't know what effect they actually have.

--Give indications of when the characters have regained HP and allow them to use items outside of battle. Remember that if an rpg system only shows up at choice moments in the story, it feels like a gimmicky add-on.

--Don't put things like pillars in your background unless you intend to have the characters pass behind them. Otherwise, you'll hurt the atmosphere.


One last thing, don't be discouraged if your innovations don't come out well. actual gameplay elements can be really hard, especially if you're not experienced with coding or general game design. You've done pretty well for a vn developer.

Thanks for the idea! I'm still trying to figure out how to code a stat screen, but not sure about using items out-battle. As in showing a range, I don't really know how to show it so I can't promise it. And for the story mode battles, I am not good at writing a battle description so it's sort of an easy way out XD
