1.What is your initial reaction to the game's intro and characters?
I AM TRYING TO LIMIT MY (DELIGHTFULLY) SCATTERED THOUGHTS INTO ONE CONCISE PARAGRAPH BUT I AM INCAPABLE OF DOING SO BECAUSETHISGAMEJUSTLOOKSSOGOOD sogood. Okay, I have successfully managed to cool down. To begin with, I saw 'Fantasy' in the post's title and I was like: yes god u have provided and answered my prayers thx. I really love Fantasy as a genre, especially in games. I've seen many stories/games following the whole 'experiment' scenario and, heck, I've even thought about writing my own story entailing something similar, so I didn't expect much as I read the first line. However, when I was halfway through with reading the plot, I realised just how well-thought-out it was and I was genuinely taken aback by how much this interested me, so thank you for that:-). I feel like you've created something worth playing and I am thankful for that. Actually, I also want to pretty much say cheers to you, given the fact that you started this all by yourself and this is all costing you your money. I really can't believe how hard you're working towards this, I'm really happy to see someone so dedicated.
But, yes, the plot does intrigue me a lot. I definitely want to know what's going to happen to the MC, poor dear has lost her entire family. I also really want to know more about the 'mysterious accident', the scientist and this last experiment. Assuming that the MC was the test subject, it makes me wonder what kind of side effects the experiment had or which superhuman abilities she gained from it.
Also, the characters are all really interesting and different, thank Jesus. H. Christ in glorious heaven up above. I appreciate that Clive and the MC are similar in the way that they both have sharp tongues and are cynical. Being quite frank, I relate very much to the MC! I've been pretty much described as a 'sour patch', I'm kind-hearted at my core, but I'm super sour on the outside (unintentionally), and I isolate myself a lot. Not to mention, I'm a cynic (though, I'm a super snarky cynic, ahaha). I'm happy that I'm actually able to relate to a character, usually I don't relate to many MCs because they're so preppy and optimistic. Gosh diddly darn it, sigh. I kind of want to know why she's such a cynic, though it's not necessary, it's just interesting to see what really made her how she is because her personality definitely is rather peculiar (in a good way, of course. If I meant it in a bad way, I'd be trashing my own personality). Oh, slightly unrelated, but I really like the MC's name! Xani (is it pronounced Zani?) is really pretty. Also, I appreciate that the MC is a POC and that LGBT characters are included, such as Lana (who is a qt, btw). I'm a person of colour myself, being mixed and all, so woo:-). Pretty cool!
Basically, I like all the characters?? I have legit nothing bad to say about ANY of them. Kei is such a cutie, help me, please, I beg. Tbh, the fact that he's blind makes him even more cuter? I just wanna snuggle him. He looks like a bundle of freakin' happiness, innocence, cuteness and comedy. I really would like to pursue his route, that. is. for. sure. My heart cannot take his cuteness. Even Clive, so adorableee:-). He seems like a self-loathing, tsundere:-(. BUT I LOVE TSUNDERES. I'd definitely play his route, too! And Lana and Shannon seem like two super cute, optimistic and happy girls, I just wanna cuddle 'em:-). (Jasper has my curiosity, though.) AND YES IF YOURE WONDERING I WAS SAVING ONE OF THE BESTS FOR LAST. I'm not sure if Inigo is a main character or if he's simply just a really important side character, but I am mildly attracted to him. Actually, scratch that, really attracted to him (and his unusual as hell name). His eyes are hidden for heaven's sake, yet he has me melting like I'm the Wicked Witch of The West and Dorothy just threw a bucket of water on me, adios. I am (obviously) the human embodiment of trash. He's so mysterious and... attractive.
(I am going to stop fangirling over the characters now, only because this will become a Bible if I don't.)
2.Which of the characters seems the most interesting to you?
I think it's safe to say that all the characters seem interesting to me, just take a gander up above at my prior paragraphs. However, so far, excluding my adorkable qts Kei, Clive and Xani, I'm REALLY interested in Inigo. He looks like a troublemaker and, overall, just really mysterious. Does he play a big part in the whole scheme of things? Is he a bad guy? Is he good? Where do his intentions lie? In general, who is he? why is he so hot???
3.Do you have any questions about the game itself?
Uhmm, let's see... I'm never good with actual decent questions of any importance, but shrug:-(. I'll try:
Will this game be commercial or free? If it was stated, I'm sorry, I didn't see! I've no problem with it being commercial, as you have spent quite a lot so far and I would greatly appreciate if it were free. Either way, I don't mind, I'm just curious. I see that this is a relatively new project, so you don't necessarily have to answer this, I'm simply asking for the sake of asking, to be honest: Do you have an estimated release date for the actual game? Such as, late 2016, or even early 2017? Of course, I understand that nothing is set in stone. Also, please, tell me, I am begging, is Indigo (yes, I have given him a nickname) a character that can be romantically pursued? My heart flutters and my stomach churns happily at the sight of him (now I'm just being dramatic but I must get my feelings across).
In conclusion, I am really excited for this project, I cannot wait for it to be finished! The characters seem, so far, to be splendidly written. I can definitely see that you put a lot of thought into this. The art is freakin' breath-taking, no exaggeration there, the GUI is adorable and fits the mood of the story and the Features list is amazing. I make sure to mention at all times that I appreciate these projects and people who create them, so I want to personally (and sincerely) thank you. I wish you luck on this project and I hope that, one day, it will come into completion:-). I also hope that it gets a ton of more recognition and I'm definitely here, waving my little fictitious flag, motivating you. If you ever need help with something like proof-reading or beta-testing for the game (or even the demo), I'm here! This game really is interesting and I'd love to help in any way I can. I'm so sorry for this long response but I hope it has made you smile, even just once, ahah. Once more, good luck (and remember to have fun), I'm cheering you on :w:!
I may or may not be a full-blown, absolute dork.
