Alright so I finished this like... a few months ago I think? Forgot to comment haha.
But wow, this has got to be THE BEST Kinetic novel I have ever read. Really. I was completely immersed, and whenever I had to save and take a break, it was often hard to pry myself away. First off, this game was HILARIOUS! I felt like I was watching an anime rather than reading, that's how good it was. The writing was well structured, our faceless MC actually had A PERSONALITY and I loved him as much as the other characters. Many scenes I was literally laughing so hard, I was punching the cushion I was sitting on. Another thing that was great about the writing was the emotion and the tid bits that made you think. I really liked that about this. There were certain parts that made me stop and had to screenshot it because it meant something to me. There wasn't a character I disliked, each one was unique and it was always fun when they were together. I loved it so much, I am actually starting on my second playthrough. If this were an anime, it'd be a series I'd watch multiple times. Therefore, as a KN, it shall be read multiple times.
Anyway, an excellent job on an intriguing and hilarious story! I was a little bummed out that
...Ciaran did not end up with Claire, like initially ended in the game. However, after playing One Hidden Truth, that was an amazing reveal and when we found of Ciaran sent the package...but Claire sent the e-mails? I am suspicious she might not be real, but some sort of a manifestation of himself? I'm playing again to confirm that, it's hard to tell since some moments in the story when she's with them... such as talking with Luce.. makes me think she is an actual person, unless I am missing something. But yeah, Claire was my favourite character by far, but in the end... him ending up with Luce was still satisfying to me. His "cure" he was able to attain, it was beautiful.
Anyway, really loved the novel. When making Kinetic visual novels, it's important for the story to be intriguing to encourage playing it again at some point, and you totally achieved that! It often helped inspired me enough to kill my writer's block when I was stumped in my own project haha.
