Unfortunately, I ran across a bug when I was doing a job from the job board (specifically, the "desperately need a date!!!" one)

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:

The error comes up after Jamie is supposed to give Lilie a dress.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news though! I do really enjoy the game and I hope that this helps you somehow.
Thank you and this will definitely help! Haha you're not the bearer of bad news, I was expecting errors, in fact I'd be more worried if I didn't get any xD

Oh you're welcome :) Sadly I can't continue on that mission now since you need to equip the outfit but there's no outfit to equip :(

But that's ok, I was planning on starting a new game anyway :) Also I didn't mention this in my previous post but I really enjoyed the sequence at Emilie's house. I think it was a great way to introduce a larger conflict in the plot, and I think that
Emilie being one of the cultists
was really well-foreshadowed.

And now the questions!

Did you enjoy it?

Yes! I can't wait for the next chapter to come out. (I might also buy the game once all the chapters are complete. :) )

What was your favorite part?

As I mentioned earlier, the sequence at Emilie's house. Besides moving the plot along and being well-written, I also liked how it helped to bring Aldrich and Lilie closer together and trust each other more.
Also I may or may not have squealed when they slept in the same bed :oops:
There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

Yes, I think that the drama and comedy alternated well. It wasn't too much of one or the other, I feel it was balanced.

How was the pacing, did everything flow well?

I think that the setting was introduced nicely in a way that the reader could follow, as well as the buildup to and the introduction of the different characters and future conflicts. So yes, I found the pacing perfectly fine.

Who is your favorite character?

Aldrich! I also like Lilie because, even though she's pretty stoic and the "straight man" in their duo, she has vulnerabilities that make her a very realistic character.

Who did you start to romance?

ALDRICH. (I hope.) Natalia is definitely cool but I want to go for him first cos he's adorable. He's actually more silly than the usual type I would go for, but his happy-go-lucky attitude and optimism, as well as how caring he is towards her endears his to me and makes me feel that he's a really good choice for Lilie. I really like how she has a secret fondness for his silliness especially since she's definitely the opposite of him, it emphasizes how close they are.

(I also lowkey ship Siegfried and Natalia, mostly because of how she takes care of him. But I also definitely love them as platonic friends. Lucy and Santana, though... :lol: Yes pls.)

Okay! I've updated the game and fixed that pesky dress bug. Sorry about that!

I know I've been kind of MIA lately but it's really just been a mess of stuff... I was sick all of November and I'm sick again and ugh. It really gives a beating to my motivation. But, my other author should hopefully be starting Chapter 3 soon, so that should kick my butt into gear. Expect more updates soon!

Thank you so much for your kind comments! The part in the house was tricky so I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it, I was worried it would drag out too long, or be too rushed through. I love Lilié and Aldrich, their moments together are so fun to write >w< They way they play off each other never fails to make me smile. I like how you say Lilié is the 'straight man' between them, because it's so true. It's also fun exploring her more playful side. And I also definitely ship Lucy and Santana... don't worry, you'll see more of them. ;)

I hope you enjoy future chapters!

Thank you!

Okay so hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates! I posted this on twitter, but,

MY TABLET IS BROKEN AHAHAAHAHAAAAAAAAA

I'm trying to get it fixed, but it's going to require me mailing it in, which will take a while. So the art is put on hold until further notice. I might end up just buying a new tablet, because they have an updated version that would save me a lot of hassle as far as cordage goes.

Anyway, that's the update! The writer for chapter three who has oh so generously offers her time, is a bit busy right now, but she's gotten a couple scenes done and will be continuing on just as soon as she can.

In short, BEATEN BUT NOT BROKEN

Thank you guys for your continued support.

Ohhh my goodness, Aldrich. cx I was wondering if we'd ever re-address that one line from Chapter 1. Looking good. ^_^

With that, I'm starting on backgrounds!

Windchimes is the writer for chapter 3, and it's coming along! I feel like that April deadline just might be met.
