FI: Interview [Comedy/Friendship][Platonic GxB/G][Updated]

Plot:
You play as a young woman named Susan (changeable) who is on her way to the popular vacation destination, Fortune Island. She works as a freelance writer and has been hired to do a one-time article for the local newsletter of the island. Despite some oddities in the way she was hired, this seemed like a straightforward gig. Once on the island, Susan is informed she will have to interview someone in order to write the article. However, this relatively simple task ends up being far more frustrating than Susan anticipated. A seemingly incompetent temp-boss, uncooperative and weird townsfolk, interruptions, and other challenges will make successfully writing this article an uphill battle from the very start.

Features:
-100,000+ words
-6 character paths
-18 endings (plus a few game overs)
-6 unlockable epilogues
-7 CGs
-Free

Rating:
E10+ (though that's just being safe, there really isn't anything 'mature' in the game)

-Who was your favorite character or characters?
-Which ending or endings were your favorites?
-About how much time did you spend playing the game?
-Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?
-Was anything confusing or poorly explained?
-Was there a noticeable amount of errors?
-Was there anything that could have been added to make the game better?

@Reikun
Thank you very much. Haha marathoning VNs is always fun ^^.

And thanks again :]. I'm not even sure how it ended up being that long, that certainly wasn't the plan X'D.

@Paupau
Thanks :3. I hope it lives up to your expectations C:.

@Ina
Yeah there have been quite a few changes since the version you originally played. Hopefully the changes will all be for the better and you'll like the game even more now :mrgreen:.

@ludeshka
Thank you :>.



And thank you to everyone else who has downloaded the game so far :).

Enjoying the game so far! :)
I do have one problem with it though - the text really hurts my eyes. I find myself having to strain my eyes to read it :(
My eyesight is pretty damn terrible though^ Lol.

Other than that, what I've seen of it so far is awesome :)

@-Ren-
Sorry about the font v.v.. I hadn't thought about how that could be an issue :0. I'm happy you're liking the story so far though :3.

Hehe, like I said I have pretty bad eyesight, so it's likely just a personal problem and won't affect anyone else! Maybe :D

Ah I feel bad for chiming in, too... the text strains my eyes. ;v; I'm really sorry, I thought it was just me since I have awful eyesight. ^^;

I'm really enjoying the story so far though!

Haha no worries. That's what feedback is for C:.

Would changing the color help or is the font itself too much?

And thank you KittyKat :].
