I loved this game! So much! Especially seeing all the work you've put into it just from a programming perspective.
(Those layer effects tho.)

The art is amazing- soft but nothing loses form. It made me really happy to look at- unlike some art that makes me feel like it's too... Perfect?
I liked the roughness, the sketching in the backgrounds- all that...

As for characters, Anton had to be my favourite- it just wasn't much of a question. Yvin tied in looks, but Anton had the better story for sure. Florien just reminded me of myself, and I honestly don't know if I played through his route seriously... I more often just skimmed.
(His mirror scene was the most powerful though!)
Let me just say now, I played this straight through the moment I downloaded it- all routes. I even went through and picked all the answers to the menu choices. The writing is amazing- it made me laugh and cringe, sometimes even at the same time...

My favourite quote, however odd it is would be when
the tree spirit says 'Thanks, I grew it myself' in reply to Yvin's compliment of his moustache...
I think I was relieved that it was a joke and not a pun...

ALSO- ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE.
I noticed you referenced IB in the 'room of liars' with Florien and Yvin- because the reference to a 'painting' and the statue chasing them... (I read the comments to see if you noted this to someone else, and you did... I was going to remove this but I'll leave it for the sake of mutual interest.) I had a total moment there. It was great.
Regardless, I'm not very good at reviews, and I tend to skip them- but I absolutely couldn't for this story. I had to show you that I had played and found it interesting, and very entertaining. I even read all the extras, some more than once. This game is a gift. Thank-you.

I've updated the game again with extra scenes with Ciel's dad and a few with Lumi during the mirror scenes in Florien/Anton's route.

Initially, I wanted to start my comment with "Bwaaaa!" because when I first saw
the slime monster
saying this, I literally cried with laughter. But as I would like to appear as a normal person to others, I leave this although it still makes me laugh :lol:

Anyway... The game is brilliant :) There were serious moments, funny moments, cute moments, mysterious moments - everything. I kept playing till the end and went to the bed really late because I wasn't able to leave it in the middle of the game. I played Anton's route and now I'm preparing for Yvin (he's really interesting person and I'm curious to know more about him). Unfortunately Florien doesn't suit me as a "partner". First, I thought it's Ciel who appeared on the screen and I realized it must be Florien only in the moment when Anton appeared... Then I noticed the differences between Ciel (next to the text box) and Florien. Silly me :D

And the idea with
interview like a bonus
is great and original :) Well, I'm going to get Yvin. Bwaaaa!

You can now play online to Magical Otoge Ciel: http://sandbox-adventure.com/

The game is in full HTML5 so there is no need to download or install anything
You can register if you want to save your game. You don't have to register to play the game.

There are few keyboard shortcuts available:

You can find more information about Sandbox Adventure Engine on this thread.

I hope you will like it. Don't hesitate to report bug if you find any.

I played this and was hooked. Love the story, absolutely fell in love with the art, and the puns oh my gosh. I laughed so hard.
Especially on the part where Florien says "I'm not sure how pure you can keep a game that everyone downloads while muttering, 'I'm about to sin', but you're right" in the Extras
Looking forward to Batensan's new games!

This game was so much fun to play! I really enjoyed it and I loved all the characters tbh. I've even been showing it to a couple of my friends since it's so great. I'm looking forward to your future games!!

Merry Xmas! The online version has been updated: http://sandbox-adventure.com/magical-otoge-ciel.html

Besides many little changes, a new character and several important scenes have been added to the game.
Magical Otoge Ciel is now 65k words long instead of 53k.

Thanks to Batensan for this update!

As I've already told you in my recent fan mail, I totally loved Magical Otoge Ciel, and I look forward to seeing Magical 1 and 2. The characters, the humour, the art, the story - so much adorableness and an absolute pleasure. And thank you for the new Yvin scenes! There's always room for more Yvin scenes. Seriously. He's the best.
In the walking on air scene, when Ais is taking his first steps, Anton's name is displayed instead of "Ais". Only once. But I was like "Whoa, what's Anton doing here?!" until a realized it's still only Ais and Ciel :D

Thank you, and sorry about that! I've updated it with the fix.
It'd be nice if I had some actual testers besides myself, haha...
