I think it's the outline, it looks like 2px, the problem would probably be solved if you just lowered it to 1. The way it is now makes it look a little blurry.
A slight increase to line height would also help too.
About the font itself, I wouldn't change that, the fact you used a manuscript font actually helps with immersion into the story, at least to me! It's fitting for the story and I think you made a good choice with it. :)

^ Agreed. It's the thick black outline surrounding the white text.

Alright C:. Would it be alright if I made a single download including all three versions and put that up along with the other three downloads?

Congrats on finishing your game!

The arts look amazing and everything look professional so far, and was it 4 choice per menu? I'm downloading it and will write feedbacks when I manage to finish the game (or at least one play through...stare at words count @.@).

Thank you Saitoki :D. Hehe yeah, the word count is pretty high, but it is split between 18 different ways you can go about the game. So playing through the game once doesn't take as much time as it might seem :]. Although getting every ending will probably take some time XD.

Most menus have three choices, but some have more and a few have less :>.

Hello. Congratulations for finishing your game : D I'm downloading it just right now. But, could you tell me how I could get the epilogues of the characters?

Thank you AleYrA :>. And sure thing, you get the epilogues by seeing all three endings related to an interviewee. Immediately after the third ending you got with an interviewee finishes you will be asked if you want to see the epilogue. The epilogues take place after a specific ending rather than fitting with all three endings, but you don't have to be on that specific ending to get the option of watching the epilogue. Like if you got the ending the epilogue takes place after first and then you do the two other endings, you won't have to go back and get that first ending again. As long as you've seen all three it'll work C:.

Played through the game 4 times so far . And to answer your question:

-Who did you interview first?
Mr Grump, he was the easiest to find so far.(I want to leave it to fate so I didn't use the walk through)

-What was the first Ending you got (if you finished the game)?
Mr Grump's again, got his epilogue first even. He was pretty easy to please :D

-Who was your favorite character or characters?
Mr Grump again maybe? That could change when i find more people. I would like to see who the boss turn out to be, too. He look like a fun guy.

-Which ending or endings were your favorites?
Uhm I guess Mr. Grumps again? until I get more ending.

-About how much time did you spend playing the game?
About 30 minutes to go through the game once if I read every dialog carefully.

-Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?
The whole getting lost in the forest seem to be difficult. I guess these is a meetable character in these? (if these is, going through 4 menu with 4 choices each to find them would be impossible without a walkthrough because these was too many combinations possible)
-Was anything confusing or poorly explained?
Not really.

-Was there a noticeable amount of errors?
These was a bug in the chick's ending credit. The quiz show up after the credit finished rolling, and if I keep answering her question, I would return to the middle of her play through. Here is a screenshot:
https://38.media.tumblr.com/8e94901061e ... o1_500.png

-Was there anything that could have been added to make the game better?

A bigger font size would be great. The font was too eye-straining to read, and since it's of the similar color as the text book, that make it even harder to read. I know that white font with black outline would look better on a white text box, but bigger size with different color would make the reader's life much easier. And because I was straining my eyes at the tiny text, my whole attention was focused on the text box and I failed to appreciate the artwork as well as the change in character's expression.

My general thought:
I was a bit disappointed that these wasn't much action. I thought that Susan would run into the interviewee in some interesting situations and have some interesting story with them along with the interview. It passed much like a quiz game, and some of the information was a bit trivial that make me feel like skipping. But again since this is an interview game, I guess that is inevitable. The characters are interesting, though, and I would keep playing because I want to find out more about the boss. :lol:
