Once I saw this title, I KNEW I must observe this!

1. What do you think about the story premise/characters so far?
LOVE IT! First of all, I absolutely love the concept of the red string of fate and am curious how you guys play with that theme. The characters seem interesting, even our heroine.

2. Who is your favorite character at the moment?
Mmm... this is hard! I do like Valerie and her very optimistic dream, so I'd have to say her.

3. Which love interest do you think you will pursue first?
AARON! Once I read about him, I fell in love--although Luke is also fairly interesting too, as I LOVE introverts and the fact he is a writer. But I love how Aaron is studious, a gamer, struggles to act on his feelings--yeah, he's my first choice! Actually, I like the fact that both the love interests are not outgoing or flirty, that is a big plus for me!

4. Any other comments or questions?
The art is cute, and will this have an opening video? (I love opening videos, I'd even be willing to make one *shot*)
Loved the trailer, btw!

1. What do you think about the story premise/characters so far?: Like Kokoro said, the "red string of fate" is an interesting twist on a romance VN. ^_^ I'm very interested in the premise!
2. Who is your favorite character at the moment?: It's hard to say... they're all interesting characters. Aaron seems a little flat compared to the other two, but I can also connect with him, so it doesn't bother me too much.
3. Which love interest do you think you will pursue first?: Luke. Writers are my favorite characters. ^_^

Hey! Thank you so much for leaving a comment! <3
Haha, yeah, all three of us being Asians, we've always had a soft spot for Asian (particularly Chinese/Korean) lores/legends. :"D We figured it'd be cool to do one on red strings of fate. We did twist that theme a lot and merge it with our own ideas so that it would fit the otome genre/the story as a whole better, so we do hope you'll enjoy it when you play this!
Glad to hear you like the characters! <3 Hmm, yeah Valerie and Luke definitely aren't the outgoing or flirty type, but for Aaron, he's more of a gray area, I'd say. Think a socially awkward, dorky geek who is cheerful and tries to be cool so he can make friends (and especially befriend his latest crush) like he really wants to, but at the same time he fails epically at it because he's, well, really far from being cool. xD That said, that's just my personal interpretation of him, and we try to leave the characters ambiguous enough to a certain extent to allow for the readers' interpretations, so you never know. xD You might disagree with my personal take on his char after playing the game!
Thanks for the compliment on the art :D Our artist was happy to hear that.
Hmm, it's unlikely we'll have an opening video. I'm like, really really bad at video editing lol. I was the one who made the trailer, and that was literally my first attempt at making a video. I struggled so much xD (Thank you btw for saying you liked the trailer. >< I'm so relieved ahaha). But yeah, we most likely won't be attempting an opening video ourselves (we only made a trailer because it's necessary for Steam Greenlight LOL). Thank you so much for your offer of helping us out on the opening video, though! While we'd love to take you up on your offer, we aren't sure if that would be too much work for you since you've mentioned you're busy for your current project, and we also want to have the game out ASAP, so we do have quite strict deadlines haha ><
Thank you so so much for commenting, and we hope you'll continue keeping up with our updates <3
Haha, I do like your interpretation of Aaron though, I totally see that--I am curious how I will see him when the game is played!
As for the video editing, as long as I have all the assets you want shown, I can get it done in two days--I kinda want examples for my video editing portfolio anyway because I am seriously planning to do commissions on it (though for this game, I'll do it free)--I won't be able to make an opening video for my own game for awhile, due to the fact I don't have all the CGs yet xD
So it actually wouldn 't take much of my time as I need it lol, but only if you want an opening video, I won't force the issue. The trailer was really good for a first try! Saying you're bad ad video editing is hard to believe lol. Good luck with this game! I look forward to playing it hehehehe.

1. What do you think about the story premise/characters so far?
I'm not usually a fan of fate/soulmates but am curious to see how it works in a branching narrative where it's clear she doesn't have One True Love. The trailer left me unclear on what the actual *story* will be, though your description here gives more of an idea.
2. Who is your favorite character at the moment?
Probably Valerie?
3. Which love interest do you think you will pursue first?
Aaron. I like nerds, and tend to find jaded anti-romance dudes annoying.
4. Any other comments or questions?
Not so much for this game specifically, but having enjoyed Lads in Distress and thinking this looks interesting I'd love to see you guys include female or non binary love interests in future games! Also: I think the trailer would look more dynamic if instead of the sprites always coming in from the left you flipped it so Aaron came in from the right with his description box coming down on the left. And whatever fade effect you used for transitions looks nice, and the art in general looks pretty good :)

1. What do you think about the story premise/characters so far?
I do the same thing Valerie does... ugh closing off my heart in search of the one is my biggest fault :oops:

2. Who is your favorite character at the moment?
I can never choose >< I really relate to Valerie, but I also really like Aaron and Luke!

3. Which love interest do you think you will pursue first?
I think I'd probably start with Aaron first..

4. Any other comments or questions?
I love the plot, it's unique and very original (which is always awesome!) :D
