@Lil Ace Thank you for the kind words! I suppose my writing style is just like that - I don't like dilly-dallying around and focus on what's driving the story (and characters) forward. Life's too short for superfluous words, and a player's time is valuable.

Regarding the ending I have good news. The one you got is being replaced by a better one very soon.
As soon as that is done, I will continue working on my second VN project, which will be slightly more elaborate.

But things kinda turn into a clusterfuck when this friend turns out to have a secret and on top of it the main character keeps crossing paths with an arsonist.
