The general storyline seems fairly interesting from my standpoint, but it doesn't seem to have as much darkness I was hoping for, but this is just from my first impressions of the story. Looking down at the characters though, they have short descriptions, but the red text makes them all the more intriguing. I think the characters suggest a darker story than initially suggested/implied from the content before it. I think though that this primarily caught my attention because it is based on the Zodiac, which I adore!
Thanks so much for the feedback! The current description is very short and intentionally somewhat vague. A more detailed description will be released upon the Kickstarter launch - it might be more clear at that point whether this will be something you're interested in :)

He seems like one of those mysterious yet smiley characters, and it really gets me thinking about what secrets he may hold and reveal throughout the course of the story. I would probably also pursue Zaxary for two main reasons: (1) he's an elementary school teacher, and that's one of my favorite occupations to see in characters, for some reason, and (2) the façade part sends chills down me; I like that feeling, to be honest. At any rate, I look forward to an immersive and emotional story!
Yessss. Dexter my personal fav too. Very glad to hear that Zax's description prompted chills; that was definitely the intention.

I really enjoyed the demo! The artwork is beautiful. I will say the festival music at the beginning took me out of the experience a bit, but overall the demo feels very polished.

Thanks for the feedback! What about the music took you out of the experience?

This is absolutely GORGEOUS!! The demo was perfect - on the contrary to one comment, the music was very submersive for me. Actually, the music was my favorite part. I'm a big fan of using lots of sound to convey feelings and actions and that's exactly what you did...and wonderfully.

I really enjoyed it, and will be backing the kickstarter within the next few days/week!

Oh! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed it, and that the music contributed to your experience! :D Perhaps the music is polarizing.

Ah! It was just the festival track. I think the drums (particularly the drum solo bit) were a little overpowering. It just distracted me a bit. Not like it was hugely detrimental to the experience or anything! I'm just easily distracted by sounds.

I finally played the demo! I will definitely buy it when it's released: the story is intriguing and well written, the music is good and the game is visually beautiful, especially the backgrounds.
