Thank you everyone for the kind words and comments. THEY ARE THE FUEL TO MY PERSEVERANCE TO FINISH THIS GAME (lolwut...please ignore me. Haha...).

@DaR : LOL excellent. I'm glad you enjoy Isaac saying "Oho"~you see, at that point, I was just typing out whatever, but I guess now it's like his catchphrase. Pft.

@Aleema : Thank you very much! Hurr, you have just exposed a massive hole in the logicality of my VN. xD I was thinking that this game is set in...somewhereland, but I figured that there's got to be, you know, at least one person in any country who likes visual kei and Starcraft. Heh.

@night_serenade : OH MY. ;D What race do you play? By the way, I love your avatar...so much win.

@Starling : Thanks...I spent ages getting that to work because I fail OTL. And I agree, notebook paper for the win (it's like, everywhere, in my game!).

@LVUER : Aha! Excellent question...there's an option to choose which race the main character will play, although it doesn't really affect the story so much; I just thought'd it'd be a cute little thing. Hehe. (BTW, I also play Terran! 8D Awesome. *too lazy to even attempt to master Zerg/Protoss hahaha*) As for the textbox--well, I thought since the VN's sort of school-related..."Lined paper. Just everywhere." luls.

@Lekhaka : GASP. I completely forgot. ): Thank you so much for reminding me...Isaac plays Zerg, London plays Protoss, and Sebastian plays Terran.

OH WOW

xD I was totally excited reading that this was a nerdy otome game...

When you made it Starcraft based you know it was orz

(I don't play, but my two guy friends talk about it ALL THE TIME, to the confusion of my roommate and I)

Very excited for this. <3

It would take more work of course, but I think it would be funny to have the player race to have some role...
Isaac plays Zerg, London plays Protoss, and Sebastian plays Terran.
That does seem to match their personalities...the mysterious Zerg, cultured Protoss, and quirky Terran.

Just thinking about the romantic dialogue cracks me up. By the way, that's just one other reason for making the race picking count:

Emo line as Zerg: "Sacrifice me..."
Flirting line as Terran: "Where does it hurt?"
H-Scene line as Protoss: "The merging is complete."

@aestate
haha well I play Zerg mostly XD but I do like the other races as well
and thank you! haha XD I love D.Gray-man, and when I saw this avatar I just loved it instantly XD

oh! and reading about the races and such, I agree that it might be better if the race did affect the game a bit, even in just small ways. Like say the protagonist played Zerg right, and since Isaac plays Zerg that could open up some dialogue between them . Maybe they could talk about or argue about certain strategies and such :)

...Huh. Reading this, my first thoughts are characters ruled by body (Isaac, Zerg), mind (London, 'Toss), and soul (Sab, Terran.)

Let me unpack that a bit. I mean that if you go that route, I would imagine Isaac would be the earthy, physical one - not necessarily touchy, but likes to move and thinks by doing. And so on, with a cerebral, philisophical and introverted London and a empathic, sensitive Sebastian.

But it's your game, not mine. It would just be kind of funny and appropriate.

If you make that his catchphrase, I would love this game over a thousand times more.

Because I love weird words. Like 'oho' and 'shenanigans'.

Seriously though, I'm really excited for any updates you have.

XDDDDDDDD
Oh... dear... *wiping little tear*

I'm not much into Starcraft *fails at any kind of strategy*, but my boyfriend and some friends are and I actually enjoy watching other people play, so i guess I can relate to this too a bit X3

Good luck with the project, I'm sure it'll be fun to play when your'e done with it! C:

>>UPDATED Statistics. (I wrote ~500 more words, which is not so impressive, but IT'S PROGRESS! Yay.)


@ lepapillonrouge : I know what you mean! My friend would rant on and on about Starcraft and eventually, I just gave in and started playing. Haha. ;P

@ Lekhaka : YOU READ MY MIND. Terrible "romantic" Starcraft puns are exactly what I had in mind! ;D I hope you weren't thinking I'd have the player select a race and have it not matter...like, at all. D:

@ night_serenade : LOL. I tried playing Zerg for like five minutes before failing epicly. But that is an excellent idea (about having them discuss strategies)...but it might be a bit off-putting for someone who doesn't play Starcraft. And by the way; yes! Fellow D.Gray-man fan? ...Gosh, that series is so addicting. >A<

@ TsundereLightning : It is kind of shameful to say it, but you put waaay more thought into this than I did. I just though, "well, all the people I know who play as Zerg are sort of nerdy. So...Isaac." etc. Hahaha (sorry, I am regrettably very lame >.>). But I love your suggestion, with sort of subtly integrating the characters' personalities with the race they play. Thank you!

@ DaR : YES. "Shenanigans" is such a fun word to say. Ohhh I am too easily-influenced...I think I'll have to start plugging in random weird words. :'D
