This seems a very nice game!

The story has his "mysteriousness" and reminds me of Project Star, the Korean game. Of course the story is different. The characters, each has a favorable uniqueness. They are not boring/typical characters. I was even scrolling and saw the long haired guy. I was like "Oh he's handsome, I want him!" but after reading his description I'm like: Oh he's gay.... awesome!
I love those surprises. At least it's funny that some are gay. :p

The art, it's obvious by what I'm writing: I love it.

I wish you all the best and good luck on making this game. :)

The art and the make up of the game look interesting, but I'm really not sure I can buy into the plot. Is Alessandra actually running the company or is she just a beneficiary of the fiances?

I'm glad you like the art! Alessandra is a beneficiary of the finances and is in charge of most of the talent in the agency. Currently, her grandfather is running the company but as soon as she turns 18, she will be the owner.

Gawrsh, It's so weird to be in the credits. I'm super hyped for this project though, The more I work on these babies the more I'm bouncing in my chair.

1. Who's your favorite character and why?
My favorite character has to be Reid Westwood because I mean who doesn't love a man with long hair XD Also he's super gorgeous looking, it breaks my heart he's gay but I'll live with it. And he's still my favorite character lol based on looks alone. Personality wise, I really adore Aedan because I tend to go for the brooding dark characters that have that soft side to them.

2. What do you think about the story?
Idol stories are pretty common but I do see you added your own spice and elements to it. I do hope it becomes equal with plot and romance. From the "death" part, it intrigued me since it made me think of what if one of the characters died and it becomes dramatic but yeah I'm looking forward to the twists in the story. Seems like it will have it though ^ ^

3. Questions, comments, concerns?
How many romance-able characters will there be? (I do like the twins a lot btw.) I'm really looking forward to this! I'd apply for writing position in a heartbeat if I had more time on my hands, good luck with the positions because I hope to be able to play a demo version in the near future.

Trust me, you're not the only one who loves Reid and wishes he wasn't gay xD I mean, so do I! He's my favorite character looks-wise, too, apart from Aedan. Looks like we have the same tastes ^^ Because of the amount of people who want Reid to be romance-able... I'll see to making him bisexual and adding a route. But that's a maybe!

Yes, I wanted my own personalized idol story that involves difficult topics. I can positively say that, not one, but two characters will die. It's a way for us to be able to develop the characters, as sad as it will be. There's definitely going to be a lot of twists in the story, so we can't wait to start writing them!
3. Questions, comments, concerns?

Right now, there are four romance-able characters: Aedan, Jace, Jonah, and Logan. Then, there's the secret friendship/enemy route at the end. Everyone seems to like the twins xD Why have I not met any Logan lovers?? Dx lmao~

Thanks for your feedback! It makes me happy that it's a story that caught your attention. The demo is planned to be released on January 1st (let's pray things go smoothly), so won't be long now!

I personally would rather that you stick with the original idea of Reid being gay. It makes the story a lot more interesting and means that you don't have to make another romance route that can stand on its own. Give it a friendship route if people are that desperate. And anyway, there'll be plenty of Ryatt fanservice going on. What would happen to that if Reid were bi?

Now that you bring up Ryatt fanservice, I take back what I said about making Reid bi. I live for fanart of canon couples, so that'll be fun to witness. Thanks for the input!

Lmaooo I'm sorry I didn't even notice there as a Noah, probably because he looked like the twins to me XD Also yeah you should keep Reid gay since he'll be the guy we can never obtain and yup all the fan service

I actually like all of the characters as a whole, but I think it's obvious that Reid stands out in more ways than one xD So he's the one that I'm choosing as the favorite. Otherwise, I will go with Aedan because I am a completely sucker for childhood tropes, and I like the broody/reserve types who actually have a big heart ^ ^

As for the story, it might be a common theme, but I definitely think your team can (and will!) execute the story well so your twist on it should be interesting ^ ^ (And I'm always for more idol stories especially in an otome game!)

This is mainly my opinion, it has nothing to do with the game, just the post...I kinda wished I could copy/paste the questions down here xD And the font...kinda messes with me but it could be that I prefer to read plainer (or less curvy) fonts when it comes to reading longer descriptions.

Regardless, I can't wait to see more of this game and definitely please continue production for this :)

OHH Man I absolutely love Reid! Equally heartbroken that he's not an option and happy you're planning to have a romantic pairing outside of the MC and her partner. Just, why'd it have to be HIM D:
Long haired guys are my weak point.

It would be AWESOME if in the future you guys could make a sidequest dlc where you can play as either Reid or Wyatt and romance the other.
Because I need to romance that guy and enjoy the idea of them being a couple.

Still am looking forward to playing this game on its release and learning more about the characters! But I'm sure you've been hearing that a lot ;)
