Hi-ya Loxxi! :'3Loxxi wrote:1. Which bachelor you like the most? and why?
Hmm. I'm actually quite torn. Mitra is a cute 'Mother Hen' figure in all good routes-not to mention, he's not good with the ladies. Kinda makes me want to tease him because he's shy. Rama's a happy-go-lucky puppy-man-child whois a sarcastic jerk, with suicidal tendencies, and, to me, his 'love' for Ayu was because he felt a duty to his beloved niece/nephew, who was miscarried. He's emotionally unstable, a killer, and despite the many other flaws about this idiot that I can write and write, he's a character thatI can't bring myself to abandon. Reksa was the typical'Daddy, look at me'type, but he had his charms. I like Mitra-but Rama was the biggest impression of the game. And, no offense, but Reksa's good ending....just ruined it for me. Good thing I played him last. ^^;
2. What makes you consider to play this game?
Bird vs. Reptiles. What not to like?
3. Overall, what do you think about this visual novel? and what element stands out the most? (art? story? character?)
Hmm. There's a lot of things, to be honest. But what stood out most isRama just had to be a brat and get himself eaten.
4. Do you have any question or constructive critiques? I will read all the comments and reply to them like I do in Lemmasoft.
..I could write a review so long that no one would care to highlight all the spoiler whatjigs I put in it. xD
5. Last but not least, if I make another visual novel, will you consider buying it? via patreon or kickstarter that is (since I need to eat, electricity, and such things when I make VNs xD)
I would totally buy it if I had even a penny on me. xD *lives off her family*
I just want to say that I laughed quite a lot reading your comments x'D
1. Rofl, you understand each bachelors' weakness and strengths so well. Your bluntness is appreciated~ especially about Rama;
3. lol, I see you're not kidding when you said Rama made the biggest impression on you x'D
4. lol I really don't mind the text wall x'D in fact, I'm pretty amused with when I saw people review it with spoilers so much it looks like a white wall. but thanks for the thought!
5. Amen! no problem at all :'3 I just want to find out if my VN is good enough to make people want to buy it or not ~
Wow pyopyon thanks for the heartfelt review! QuQpyopyon wrote:1. Which bachelor you like the most? and why?
Before I started this game, my prediction was my favorites would be Reksa > Mitra > Rama.2. What makes you consider to play this game?
But then I played it.
Oh my god. Rama. RAMA. R A M A. I hated and loved his crazy behind loooollll. Every time he acted... himself, I wanted to hit him-- and I loved Tamara's reactions every time he did or said something totally messed-up... Hotness-wise, I really liked Mitra and Reksa more-- but then. I got to his bad ending. And. I was totally speechless. TOTALLY speechless. Generally, I hate bad endings (like a lot) and I avoid them-- but there was only two so I thought I could handle them endings............. I played it in the recommended order-- Mitra (so I was scarred at Rama's death) then Rama then Reksa and just OH MY GOD RAMA I FELT SO HORRIBLE FOR HIM. I ACTUALLY CRIED LIKE WHY DID I PLAY THIS GAME I FEEL HORRIBLE
I STILL FEEL HORRIBLE I'M JUST WHY RAMA MY LOVE
So because his bad ending was SO BAD, he's my favorite. I just wanted to be the Goddess of Fate and save Tamara... it was just all so unfair... I'm just so.... )^: DANG IT THAT BAD ENDING AND THAT ENDING CG. THIS IS WHY I DON'T PLAY BAD ENDINGS OMGGGG His good ending should've been like he gets everything he's ever wanted and also he gets a million dollars and a huge happy family with a lot of children and he never has to see blood ever again. )^: I feel like I"m dead inside ok like Rama's ending CG expression killed me :'^((((((( He was really broken... out of six endings he only gets happiness in one of them.... I'm really dead inside because of him.
Ahem. So THAT aside....
My number two is Reksa. Reksa was super hot, possessive in a cute way, and I just loved him ; ~ ; but.......... But unfortunately, I'd just played Rama's bad ending so I was still... dead on the inside LOOOOLLL. Reksa's bad ending was sad but it wasn't nearly as sad as Rama's. I just thought about Rama the entire time I played Reksa's route. orz;;; The fact that they didn't exchange 'I love you's before the big battle though! *shakes fist* Ah... I understood in the context of his bad ending, but still. I enjoyed the plot of Reksa's route the most, I think. It was kinda cool to see more komodo stuff! The only thing I wondered about was Granny & Silva's relationship... Chief Silva having white hair made me wonder if he was older than he looked and him and Granny having a secret thing going on once upon a time.....
Haha. But I really liked his route's plot! I think Reksa's overall plot was my favorite. It's kind of weird, but I liked that he kinda kept losing in all his fights with Purba. I also liked how much more he showed his animal traits more than the avians, which was cool considering that the avians have huge wings so of course they look more animal, but even though he looked more "human", he did more animal things like growling, baring his fangs, talking about her scent... his wildness was really cool and I loved that you gave him animal traits that affected how he acted.
My number three is Mitra. Mitra's route was really good and cute-- in another world, it would be my favorite route. I liked that Mitra was gentle but also really direct. I liked that he didn't play around with romance and just told Tamara that he liked her-- the wing ceremony was suchhhh a great part of his route and I loved the kissing ceremony even though I was sad that they didn't really kiss.... The cultural notes were really nice and made me curious about Indonesia's cultures- but Mitra doing the wing display was cool for me because I love wings and I think they're cool and honestly I was hoping for that he would use them-- so in that scenes and the feather grooming scene, I felt like my heart was on fire. *__* And if I'm honest, every single one of the routes was good. ; 3 ; I'm... really glad there was so sad ending for Mitra, haha. He's so precious! I don't think I could handle him being sad.
tl;dr: Rama's bad end > Reksa > Rama > Mitra
Mitra is only at the end because there's no more characters but I absolutely LOVED his route and personality.
Three things: 1) Love interests with brown skin (REALLY! there needs to be 100000x more), 2) Indonesian mythology, 3) Reksa. He's super hot.3. Overall, what do you think about this visual novel? and what element stands out the most? (art? story? character?)
Ah... for me, I really liked how different the bachelors are from each other. Their personalities are really distinct. I really love how Mitra used his wings to shield and intimidate and such, and the wing ceremony had my heart in pieces, it was soooooo cuuuute. There were a lot of parts that made me smile and giggle in each route. Reksa saying "our cave" (I actually said the same thing as Tamara did out loud. When she said, "When did it become OUR cave?" I almost died laughing because I didn't expect her to say that, too.) or Reksa getting jealous of Mitra in a subtle way, or the hug scene with Tamara...4. Do you have any question or constructive critiques? I will read all the comments and reply to them like I do in Lemmasoft.
The element that stood out the most was the use of effects! Lighting for fire, swipes for sword cuts, making Reksa's sprite shake when he growled-- there were a lot of really cool effects in the VN. It was really immersive; like, you have amazing VN storytelling techniques!
This was such a great VN, I don't regret waiting for it at all. Ah, also I was really surprised about Tamara coming from the modern day world. I didn't expect it.
Also, I like how for 2 out of 3 love interests, Tamara is basically royalty. Either she's komodo royalty (Reksa) or she's avian royalty (Mitra).
The plot was great and I like how it was a little grey/ambiguous about who was totally right or wrong. The only thing for me was: why DID the Komodo dragons steal the Blessing and demand the avians get off the island? I wish it could've been explored a little more, but it was really good so I didn't mind. I had a lot of questions about the war aspect, but mostly because I'm curious. It was still great with me having a lot of questions, haha.
Oh. Well. Since you asked: why DID the Komodo steal the Blessing and want to kick the Avians off the island? Also... Chief Silva )^: Does he really not care about his son because he's small or did he say those mean things to him when he beat Purba because of the purple crystal? I feel like I had more but... I'm sleepy now, so... haha.5. Last but not least, if I make another visual novel, will you consider buying it? via patreon or kickstarter that is (since I need to eat, electricity, and such things when I make VNs xD)
Oh! This is totally hypothetical but... does Chief Silva like Tamara? XD The nightmare she kept having... who was it about? Is there any way to save Rama without courting him? ;___; Why does Mitra run away after he realizes his wing was moving while Tamara groomed it? Did that have a secret meaning too?
Also... Rama's wings. Were they broken and didn't heal right and that's why he can't use them or are the feather's clipped or...? What's wrong with them, exactly?
Critiques... not much. There was some parts where the English was awkward, but it was okay with me since I could understand everything. Also, the option button was broken... I PM'ed you about it, but the error basically says that you forgot to add a font in the folder or something. Ah, well. I still loved it.
YES. Y E S. YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS please make more omg. I didn't have money when I first downloaded it but I get paid this week so I'm totally going to pay you money. /o/
Sorry that this is long. I've been waiting for ages so I'm really happy!
1. Hahahah, I feel you right. there. Rama was sometimes frustrating to write.
Also, I think I didn't write about this in the story O.O but remember when he told Tamara that his parents died when he and Teja were very young? They were murdered right before their eyes -and Rama took it harder than Teja(scarring him for life); which he tried to hide by being cheerful. Since then, he's always afraid of losing someone important. That moment when he thought the villagers betrayed him and took Ayu away from him when it was not long after Teja died snapped something inside him >.<;
I also LOVE it when you said 'I also liked how much more he showed his animal traits more than the avians, which was cool considering that the avians have huge wings so of course they look more animal, but even though he looked more "human", he did more animal things like growling, baring his fangs, talking about her scent... his wildness was really cool and I loved that you gave him animal traits that affected how he acted.'
YES! that is a hidden message I planted in the story! Sometimes, animals act more 'human' and people often acted more savage than 'animals' (like, how a dog manages to adopt a cat while a mother killed her own baby because she didn't want it, get it?). So I wanted to try to portrait it a little with Reksa and Mitra.
It seems you're the only one who manages to uncover my message
2. Hahahahah, I know! We need more dark-skinned love interests here! x'D but hey, I'm glad you like the Indonesian cultures and facts!
And lol, you noticed the little details! Tamara IS going/not going to be royalty depending on who she choose!
Chief Silva is hard on Reksa because he cares about him in his own way. You may call it tough love but it's true that with Komodos, the strong ones will survive and the weak ones will die.
About Mitra's grooming event... lol, he just ran away in embarrassment. His wings seem to be more forward in telling Tamara of his feelings when he was not ready to tell her yet that night x'D
This is trivia matter; but it's not easy for Avians to let other people touch their wings -it's a very intimate gesture. (Even brushing wings are as far as flirting goes, like the 3 girls remember?) So he was already pushing it to let Tamara groom his wings... and then his wings did that without him noticing so... lol overload x'D
and lol, Tamara's dream is about Rama. In Rama's mind, he was being mocked by the betrayers and that's also when he attempted the suicides. The CRUNCH sound is when he broke his wings in his 4th attempt of suicide. He wanted to die but can't. The other voice that calls someone to 'Help him' is Ayu. She regrets her choice of leaving Rama and wanted someone to 'save' him quick. She can't tell Tamara directly in her bird form since she's no longer Ayu in that form but Sari; the Goddess's servant. Teja(the other bird with pale eyes) also wanted to help, but unfortunately he lost his ability to speak in his bird form.
and no, if you're not in his route, he will die :') This is a sad fact -Rama is too far gone in his depression & insanity to be saved by other way. He needs someone to show him that he can trust and love again.
see you around and in my next poject!
