1. Which character are you most interested in?
Currently, i'm looking forward to Aidens route, i like his design and his unusual hairstyle, hoping he's an awkward gamer geek. (tho the differing character sheets here and on itch have me a bit confused on whether he's a bartender or an IT guy and whether he's "not who he says he is" XD)
Caines route also seems like it'd be interesting.
2. Are you enjoying Neil's route, do you still like him/hate him?
I'm a bit torn over this one,
I enjoyed their bickering at first, and liked the part where the MC is purposely making him uncomfortable XD It's also cute how you can tell from the blushing and everything that he doesn't actually want to be a jerk but can't help it. The black hair also looks very nice on him. (tho i'm a bit put off with the fact that a random guy just happened to have the same weird hair Neil used to, without it being explained in any way)
But idk, to be honest it's just a bit too much for me, i don't know how their interaction develops further along, but when he went all "we shouldn't have contact with each other anymore" after everything he already put the MC through (i even went against myself and picked "its not what i want" because i didnt wanna be immature) he really crossed the line there with me, i know he thinks it's for the best or something, but i'm left wanting an ending where she just stops thinking about him and goes on with her life, because i don't want her swallowing her pride and ending up with a guy who's (even if its inadvertently) a jerk.
I think it'd be less of a bother if the MC wasn't portrayed as having such strong feelings of longing for him and being so hurt by it to the point where she can't think about anything else unless she distracts herself by working
But that's just my opinion XP
3. What are your thoughts on Dimitri's first two chapters? Do you want to read more?
He seems pretty cute, I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.
Tho I'm a bit put off by the age difference and I couldn't help but think the parents would not be willing to accept MC into the family again after she's dated and broken up with his brother already XD
4. Who's your favourite guy out of Neil and Dimitri? Or perhaps Alex?
I can't really say since I haven't seen much of Dimitri, tho I generally like the flustered shy types, and Neil did end up annoying me a bit so it will probably be Dimitri.
5. What's your favourite CG?
I liked the one where Neil and the MC were making out, though I've an inquiry, i didn't see anywhere that this was 18+ or that it includes sexual content, but that scene was certainly leading up to something, I'm wondering if there'll be any at the end? (it'll be kind of of difficult to top that build up otherwise XD)
6. What's your favourite chapter or scene?
I suppose I especially enjoyed the one where the MC was tormenting Neil while taking his measurements. XD
7. Which part was the most romantic to you?
Objectively, the scene at the ball was most romantic I'd say, subjectively, I found their playful bickering much more endearing (they might've been taking it seriously, but I insult people to show affection, so I found it cute, rather than frustrating XD) though as I said Neil really overdid it. :")
8. Out of all of the side characters, is there anyone you would want as a date option?
Not really, but I would want to see a friendship route for Sarah.
(though if you decide to also make her a romance option at some point I'd gladly play it)
9. Did you at any point get stuck on a loading screen?
Nope, all good.
10. Did you encounter any bugs while designing?
Aside from the fact that sometimes I had to click twice on the 'design' or 'outfit' button for it to register (I also had to click enter twice for entering names), nothing.
11. Was everything easy to use, or were the menus too complicated?
Everything was quite well-placed and coherent, the gui design is solid.
12. What did you like more, creating clothes, dressing up the avatar, or reading the story?
The first thing I tried to make was a button up shirt, but alas, there wasn't a collar to indulge this notion, I'm guessing there'll be more options later on though, looking forward to it.
I only dressed up the avatar once, since I felt it had no impact on the story so it wasn't as interesting for me. Reading the story was quite enjoyable since it's fairly well-written and the protagonist wasn't as meek as they tend to make them in otome games.
13. Most importantly, did you enjoy the game?
I did, and I will be coming back to play once it is updated.
As for the additional questions from the beta-testing thread(since that's how I initially saw this):
- Were you initially fooled during chapter 12, thinking it was Neil?
At first I was, when they bumped into each other, I had thought Neil simply didn't recognize the protagonist, but I realized during my first conversation (before the mirror room) with the black-haired man that he was actually Neil.
- Did it become obvious the black haired man was Neil instead?
Yup, rather than changing his hairstyle I thought he was wearing a wig though, and that he didn't know who the MC was either until they met at the bench outside. (Also, as I said, I was expecting a clarification on why that other guy had the same hair XD)
- Did you spot the falling star?
Nope, must've missed it D:
I read pretty fast so I tend to miss details.
- Did you like the CGs and which one was your favourite?
I answered this but yes, they were drawn rather nice.
- Did the second CG properly display your selected hair colour and skin tone?
Not really. So the first two options I had at the beginning I chose short black hair, but I changed it to long white hair after I started the game and saw I had more options. In the first CG I had the hair I choose at the beginning, and in the second one it was still black but longer?
- Did your opinion of Neil change? Do you like him more now, or hate him even more?
Like I said I actually liked him up to a certain point, but somewhere after the ball in the before and after they made out in her boutique his boorish behavior was just a bit overdone and began to annoy me, so in the end I was left wanting an option for the MC to stop liking him and just ditch him completely.
- Do you want to know what happens next?
Even though I'm put off by Neils route at this point I do still want to see where you go with it next so I suppose I do. And I'm looking forward to the other routes, of course, especially dat weird haired gamer.
