Just finished a 2nd ending for Kimber, not using a walkthrough, will try some of the other routes later when I have time :)

Code: Select all

-Who did you interview first?
Kimber. Well, I found Marisol, and the overzealous guy first, but I stubbornly rewound each time in order to find Kimber because I found her the most intriguing :p

Code: Select all

-Who did you interview last (if you played the game more than once)?
Kimber again, because it felt like I didn't get the right ending the first time. And I was right. I got the CG and a friendship ending during the 2nd playthrough.

Code: Select all

-What was the first Ending you got (if you finished the game)?
Uh.. I left the island with a possibility of coming back to work for Boss.

Code: Select all

-Who was your favorite character or characters?
Kimber :p I loved her unpredictable, funny personality. I liked the protagonist too. Witty, intelligent and down-to-earth.

Code: Select all

-Which ending or endings were your favorites?
Well, I just got two so far so.. the friendship ending with Kimber.

Code: Select all

-About how much time did you spend playing the game?
Mm.. around an hour and a half maybe? This is probably because I'm a slow reader. I like to absorb and savour whatever I read/play/watch.

Code: Select all

-Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?
Well, I got lost in the forest once xD It was fairly simple to get out, though. It wasn't really difficult, though. You could usually tell which choice was the right one for what you wanted.

Code: Select all

-Was anything confusing or poorly explained?
Hmm... no. Not that I can think of.

Code: Select all

-Was there a noticeable amount of errors?
I noticed a typo in the monologue at the beginning, don't remember exactly what it was, though. A word was missing.

Code: Select all

-Was there anything that could have been added to make the game better?
The text was a little glaring and small. But it's nothing major. Also the "sky-staring monologue" at the start was a little long. Basically an info dump. I was apprehensive about the rest of novel while going through that. And the conversation with Boss at the start also felt somewhat stretched.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience. I had a smile plastered over my face throughout. I even laughed out loud at a couple of places xD Interesting characters, nice dialouge flow, good art... It was very entertaining :)

Thank you very much DarkSin ^^. I appreciate the feedback and I'm happy to hear it made you laugh :3.

The game's downloads have been updated with a version that has larger/easier to read text, so you can try that out if you want. Although maybe you already have that version and I didn't fix it well enough 'XD.

Maybe just a little bigger? Or maybe it's the colour combination, i.e; text colour/text box colour and transparency. But it's a small thing, at any rate. I just found it a liiittle straining for my eyes, but it didn't really affect my playing experience :)

That's not good :0. I'm glad it didn't cause too much of an issue though :]. If I end up making another update I'll tweak that again C:. Thanks~

Hehe, thank you very much Junesong ^^.
Hark will be back in the completed game section again one of these days. And while I can't guarantee a proper romance, at the very least the relationship will be up for interpretation rather than strictly platonic :].

Edit: I'm just gonna put all this in spoilers...
Loved it! Flirting with Kole cracked me up. :lol:

-Who did you interview first?
Tomi. Made for an interesting first play through, with his self-centred personality... But his CG ending was cute. :)

-Who did you interview last (if you played the game more than once)?
Damon. Between him and Hark, I got lost countless times. :)

-What was the first Ending you got (if you finished the game)?
#11 Smile for the camera (at this point I didn't realise there were CG's).

-Who was your favorite character or characters?
Dr. Lev. After Tomi's insanity, his straightforwardness was very appealing. :D

-Which ending or endings were your favorites?
Dr. Lev's was sweet, both his and Hark's CG endings really made me want to come back.

-About how much time did you spend playing the game?
A few hours may or may not have passed while avoiding work... :wink:

-Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?
Eh, Tomi irritated me first time around, but other than that it was heaps of fun.

-Was anything confusing or poorly explained?
Nope.

-Was there a noticeable amount of errors?
If there were any, the plot quickly made me forget.

-Was there anything that could have been added to make the game better?
Mmm... A gallery and a list of obtained endings is always nice, so that I can look at them again after playing.

Thank you very much lockpicklogic :>. I appreciate the feedback and I'm glad the game didn't give you any trouble.

If everything works out all the games I make in the future will have CG galleries. Ending Galleries are great too but I can't guarantee those CX.

First off, this is literally my first post/review on this site despite me having been lurking for years haha.
Anyway let's get to this.

I really enjoy the game! I enjoy reading through all of the characters' little random stories and how the stories just define the characters naturally. The characters are dynamic and don't seem two dimensional at all! Except for, in my opinion, the Chick...I don't feel a lot for her.. even MC's replies to her seem quite distant and polite at most to me. But that's just me, probably.

Onto the questions.. (since I love their "codenames" a lot I'll just be using that lol)

Who did you interview first?
Mr. Grump. It was fated lol, I was randomly picking the places and poof there he is.

Who did you interview last (if you played the game more than once)?
Creeper. I only found out about him when I was on Freckles' route! And it took me a while to find him.

What was the first Ending you got (if you finished the game)?
#13 and that was literally me being myself in the game lol if you know what I mean.

Who was your favorite character or characters?
Hmm, this is kind of a hard question since I find the characters to be interesting~ I would say Mr. Grump, but I really don't like how judgmental he is towards Creeper. So I guess Tourist it is then! But Mr. Grump is still a favourite tho, tied with Tourist in fact lol.

Which ending or endings were your favorites?
#7, #11, #12, #13, the one where Boss got chewed out by
(his mom, I think?)
the Mayor is pretty funny too.

About how much time did you spend playing the game?
6 hours straight!

Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?
Not at all, everything is really straightforward. I could always press PageUp whenever I made the wrong choice, so I appreciate that, especially given the fact that I cannot Load the game without going to the Main Menu screen.

Was anything confusing or poorly explained?
The explanations are informative. The game is not confusing at all. However, there are a lot of mysteries left for me to wonder about..such as:
1. Freckles' eyes issue and the change of his name's font colour when he did that. Although Tourist did mention that his name reminds him of Demon. Foreshadowing?!?!
2. Creeper's backstory, of course. His brother? Made with mold??
3. Chick's tendency to break the 4th wall lol. I mean, basically all the characters do that when I use their names as my name, but this girl, especially more.
But I guess those are stories for another day, yes?
And oh speaking of which, I really really reeeaally enjoy these little details (the one about names) and I laughed so hard seeing their reactions, especially Creeper's (REALLY) and Mr. Grump's.

Was there a noticeable amount of errors?
I think I downloaded your game a while ago when this was first released (but I only played it yesterday .__.), so my problems would be the same as the ones other users mentioned, which I'm sure has been taken care of.

Was there anything that could have been added to make the game better?
If the font has been altered then that is good. I personally don't really find the Main Menu's GUI very..inviting, but that is my personal preference. The in-game text box and the forward indicator (?) are very pretty! The art is really beautiful! I marvel in the beautiful background arts a lot too~ And of course, great writing!
OH! A CG Gallery would be nice.

All in all, it's a thoroughly enjoyable game that makes me want to know more about the characters. Great work! Thank you for sharing your work with us~

Aw, thank you very much for all that jcroxx ^^.

I hope when the mysterious are revealed they were worth waiting for :>. Though I can explain one of those mysteries right now without it being much of a spoiler;
Chick's fourth wall knowledge is because she has some 'main character' powers, since in the next game she's the main character. Susan is still around but she's on vacation from work (and being the MC. Being the main character of a game takes a lot out of you). Her being a future MC might also be why she seems less solid than the other characters. Parts of who she is will be decided on by the players in that next game.
Haha, I'm glad you enjoyed the name thing (I wasn't sure if anyone would try that out X3).

We did update the font in the newer version, though it could still be better :'D.

Thank you :mrgreen:! Hopefully it won't be too much longer before I can officially announce one of the two main projects I'm working on right now (one is the next FI game and the other is something separate from that series, but still a similar genre) :].

Just downloaded and started playing. (:

But I have to agree with some of the other people, the text is really hard to look at. ^^; Maybe if it were just white, without the outlines... or just black, or that brown that's used in the textbook background.

-Who did you interview first?

Tomi

-What was the first Ending you got (if you finished the game)?

I got ending # 11

-Who was your favorite character or characters?

Only played through once so far, but I'll get back to you on that xD

-Which ending or endings were your favorites?

I refer you to my previous answer~

-About how much time did you spend playing the game?

It only took me around twenty minutes or so to play through once.

-Was getting through the game difficult or irritating?

At one point I got lost in the forest, which was a little irritating. I'm also not a fan of the 'right' or 'wrong' questions, but I tend to prefer VN's without game overs in general, so that's just me. :3

-Was anything confusing or poorly explained?

Nope everything was explained great!

-Was there a noticeable amount of errors?

I don't think so.

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

Like I said, I think you should be able to play through without getting a game over, and your choices just affect what happens. It put some pressure on me and I made sure not to make any wrong choices, which distracted a bit from the play through. But like I said, that's my personal preference, I know there are people who like their VN's that way. So take it as you will xD

BTW my favorite part:
Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 1.05.19 AM.png
I don't know why, but something about the way he said that just made me crack up. xD

Oh! Also I found a small typo:
Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 1.48.13 AM.png
I think it should be they don't want 'to' deal with it anymore.
