I think i enjoy playing games than making them ^^' - but then again - the reason why i even wanted to try make one in the first place was because i loved playing too much ^^'

......but why is Mira's last name Cosgrove...? is that a purposeful spinoff of Miranda Cosgrove? the celebrity? (I just noticed... and I'm not sure anyone else pointed it out...)
It was totally an accident that her name turned out to be the same as the celebrity - we forgot to check names when we named her. It was a co-incidence. We had mira then looked up "suitable" surnames starting with C (coz intials M.C. <-- this is the play on words, just like Emma Cee was also a Em.C) and ended up choosing Cosgrove. We never realised there was a celebrity by that name >_>''''

I hope the full version will be released soon. I've played the demo and I really look forward to it. The prologue is great ! The end makes you want to read more! I'm a French girl and I really love all of your work! Thank you for your hardwork!

1) Would you play this - even if the protag is a little questionable? >_>

Absolutely! It's refreshing to see a heroine who differs from the usual shy/plain//inexperienced/dormant persona. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just nice to have some variety. I quite enjoyed being able to flirt with all three bachelors. :p Mira is absolutely gorgeous too. Also, I wouldn't call her 'questionable', she's just a person who enjoys flirting. I'd love to see more scenes with her and her friends in the final game. I quite enjoyed the bits we've seen in the demo. There's an underrepresentation of female friendships in the media, but I do understand that they probably won't take priority in an Otome game.

2) Do any of the characters catch your eye? Also why :P

Zane immediately caught my eye, I love the jerks in Otome games, I can't even say why. There's just something gratifying about getting the meanies to like the player character. I like Kiron too. At first I thought he was going to be the teacher-type who gets embarrassed easily and is fairly innocent, but it was a nice surprise to see him going along with Mira's flirting. I totally didn't expect that! Maybe it's just me, but I feel like his eye proportions are slightly off. I feel like the placement of the right eye is a tiny teeny bit too low. Other than that, I think the artwork is beautiful. I've already mentioned that I like Mira's design, but really, everyone looks great. I especially like that the sprites seem so 'alive' with having them blink.
I don't have to say much about Daire since he's not really my type, personality-wise. My opinion on him might change later on.

3) Are you disappointed in VO having no mini-games?

I don't mind since I'm not a big fan of mini-games in the first place. In most of the VNs I've played which had them I felt they were either too easy or got repetitive fast, or both.

I do want to mention another thing about the dialogue. When the characters introduced themselves to each other, I found it weird that they did so by saying their full names. I feel like that doesn't really happen in a club setting. People there tend to just say their first name and be done with it. Wow, I feel really nit-picky now. I enjoyed the demo a lot and am really looking forward to the final product.

truthfully we've only managed to work on bits and pieces since it been difficult to find a time when we're both free (especially since we're living on opposites sides of the world - and that we mainly only write when we're both on)
Writing is probably our main problem. Programming and drawings could be done separate but we're no where near completing the story
Also my drawing tablet stopped working a few weeks ago and now im in the slow process of "customer support"
I have a feeling that untill i'm finally back on summer break (which is the end of year for me) i'm not going to have much time to work on this as much a i'd like. But still we are working on it slowly.

I finished the demo recently. (The cliffhanger... That was an evil place to end it, woman.) I decided to revisit this threat and answer the questions posted.

1) Would you play this - even if the protag is a little questionable? >_>
I absolutely liked Halloween Otome, so I will probably try this one when it's out. But honestly, there were times in the demo that I wished Mira's behaviour could be controlled a bit more by the player -- like when she was interacting with Caverly near the end.

2) Do any of the characters catch your eye? Also why :P
Kiron's eyes immediately stood out; they're really shiny. Personality-wise, I'm rather interested in discovering what Daire is hiding.

3) Are you disappointed in VO having no mini-games? (there may be something that we're adding called M-mode but that's still in the works for now)

It's not a deal breaker for me if the VN doesn't contain any. Although, I enjoyed them in Halloween Otome.

getting lost in the maze was hilarious. C:

Best of luck with fixing your tablet. :3

Ooooh that looks amazing ! (2d)
He's still as sexy as I remember! I played the demo a long time ago but I'm kinda curious of Emma her boyfriend. Which one is it? Because now that the model (forgot the name) is making an appearance in the game. I thought we just choose the guy we like as Emma's boyfriend in this game. :o
