Thank you! I just finished up The Visitor
and I liked it for much the same reasons that you mention for OF. I don't know if you felt the same way, but I felt the Visitor
and Origamo Furioso
were surprisingly similar in their approaches, in that both the VNs were bad by abusing great classics instead of getting down and dirty with MS Paint and homemade voice acting.
Exactly! I mean, look at all the screaming about copying art? We went one further and just ripped the art off whole without even bothering to change it. LOL!

your cheap jokes!
-- Thank you! I always wanted to make something Solid and Lengthy.
Originally I was going for the cheap jokes too. However, the characters literally took on a life of their own and suddenly I had an actual Story on my hands. Then came all the loose ends that had to be tied up before I could end it.
Just so you know, I kept wondering if I should throw in just one more bad guy; someone to really challenge the count, but I just couldn't think of one. Not from the horror classics anyway. I mean seriously, who's powerful enough to take on Dracula?

I think if you'd label the chapters x out of y, instead of just x, the audience knows what to expect a little better and it'd flow more easily. That's my €0,02, anyway.
Thank you for your advice, but the way I made my chapters was Deliberate.
-- I wanted
to keep the reader off-balance and Not realize when the end was coming. I didn't want the reader to know what to expect. I never
want my readers to know what to expect from my stories.
I am absolutely thrilled that you liked it!
