1. Do you prefer to have only 1 big stage for the game (like it is currently. A big town, with 10 people to be match-made), or multi-stage with smaller number of single people? (For example, only 2 guys and 2 girls, smaller town, maybe even in different time settings -> fantasy, urban, etcetra)
I think either could be interesting. I think different stages could be fun, though, especially if doing that made it easier to flesh out the different relationships a little more (since there would be fewer possibilities to have to write) but only if it was balanced to keep the GxG and BxB fun, too? If you have two men and two women, there are two possible combinations if you pair the characters up into opposite-sex couples, but only one possible combination if you pair the characters up into same-sex couples, and if any of the characters can't make a match with the other same-sex character, that means pretty much everyone needs to be heterosexually shipped. Having three of each would add more variety, or even having an unequal number of men and women on some levels might be fun?
Different settings could be good! Fantasy or sci-fi levels might even help with the same-sex couple baby issue.

(I have another game on-progress, that I "believe" will have more prospective customers, but it doesn't hurt to know if this game is good enough to be sold, since I think this is unique and I personally love the experience of making it.)
I would probably pay for it, if the relationships were fleshed out more, if you had it proofread, and if the thing I complained about earlier wasn't an issue anymore.
