Total there will be five love interests, including the teacher, of course. One of the love interests - the girl-pirate. The first chapter of the game is already finished, but it is only in Russian. When I finish work on the game, it will be translated into English))
I hope for a very (un-)pirate-y adventure then. :3
I must say I really enjoyed your game. Just bought it yesterday so I am on my second playthrough. And my.....it's so gorgeous! Almost too beautiful if you get my meaning
It's short , but not in a bad way. I found it very comfortable to read and was genuinely entertained by it. I got more out of it then I would expected. Never give up! delivers what you would expect at the first glance, sure. But it went beyond that. It's cute, it's a bit kitschy (Mia's ramblings, caste system and old prejudices, prestigious school, childhood friend madly in love with her, interested classmate, a handsome detective, but whatever. It's a Otome game! ) but doesn't go overboard with it. I'll say it's the well crafted delicious kitsch that doesn't make to want you to barf or roll your eyes. It's fun, fluffy, pretty and doesn't shy away from featuring more darker themes in it. The combination of Otome and mystery is wonderful and I wish would we get more of that. Especially non-anime visuals. More individuality in graphic styles. I think that would make me happy.
Definitely recommended. Incredible good price-quality ratio.
Note: I don't mean kitsch in a negative here. If I could find I better word for it then i would use it.
Edit: I'm not sure were I should post typos here or in the Steam game discussion:
We finally added trading cards, backgrounds and emoticons)))
Oh well, I did want to mention that I really like your style and artwork - the characters are beautiful and their clothing (especially Miss Hortensia Whitehouse, whose entire character design is simply to die for) is just gorgeous. <3
If I can say any con about it so far it's that there is too much explanation at the beginning of the game. I know that you need to establish some background, but I think that such things can be done in a much more streamlined fashion by cutting back on unnecessary details and having need-to-know information emerge as a consequence of the character's actions and experiences. Reading huge chunks of 'background' text without much going on alongside it gets boring, and you really don't want the start - which is meant to capture the player - to get bogged down with words. I think, as a result, the beginning was a tad boring. However, it did get better after that, and I'm enjoying it thus far (besides discovering I cant have my teacher.. T__T).
If he's going to have his own game though.. well, that makes it a bit better.
Also, I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed this, but was Mia based off of Hermione Granger and Aleister based off of Draco Malfoy?
I got Alisteir's perfect ending on my first full playthrough. After the first answer it was quite obvious how to respond to him to get him to like me more and more However, I just cannot get Detective's prefect ending. The best I got was a good one. If you could share some tips, I'd be eternally grateful.
I know this is a visual novel and it's not supposed to be scary and all that, but to be honest, there were not enough moments of dread in this whole story. I know that Mia is a brave little half-elf and that it is hard to create genuine moments of fear, but to me there were just not enough of those. And I got the feeling that the confrontation with the killer in Alisteir's path was a bit rushed.
But the story was quite funny. I laughed a few times, especially when Mia was in Professors Goldstone's office, trying to explain why she was late and then when she ran into him in the hallway. I was honestly begging her to shut up already, haha.
All in all I really enjoyed your game. It was uniqe, funny and the characters were very likeable. I cannot wait for your next game, matey
