Good day.

1. Which character are you most interested in?
Though at the first glance at the characters I thought that Cain is the most appealing, right now Dimitri is the favorite.
2. Are you enjoying Neil's route, do you still like him/hate him?
Well, he is not my type of characters, so I've grown quite weary while going through his route. It had some charming moments, though. At the end, I really wished to continue reading and find out what happens next.
3. What are your thoughts on Dimitri's first two chapters? Do you want to read more?
Yeah, I definetely would like to read more. Scenes in this route have some kind of a cinematic touch: it's like I'm watching a 'slice of life' movie. I like Dimitri character as well as sore story of Joselina relationship with Alex.
4. Who's your favourite guy out of Neil and Dimitri? Or perhaps Alex?
Dimitri.
5. What's your favourite CG?
The last one, that portrays Joselina kissing with Neil. Very sensual.
6. What's your favourite chapter or scene?
Hm, that would be Dimitri's chapter 2 and especially the cake making scene. That's the moment when the characters united by their loneliness start to becoming friends.
7. Which part was the most romantic to you?
Of course, the ball chapter feels like romance in the very essence of this word: dancing, lights are on, magnificent gowns, Cinderella and her prince, anonymity.
8. Out of all of the side characters, is there anyone you would want as a date option?
No.
9. Did you at any point get stuck on a loading screen?
No.
10. Did you encounter any bugs while designing?
Not while desighning, but I encountered some bugs. Here are screenshots.

Stucked gallery.

Sarah referring to MC as 'Joselina', though I named her differently.

11. Was everything easy to use, or were the menus too complicated?
Well, I skipped the tutorial, so for some time I couldn't understand how to use details, but that's my fault.
However, I was clicking on the Return arrow for quite a long time before I understood that I need to click on options button.

12. What did you like more, creating clothes, dressing up the avatar, or reading the story?
Reading the story. Dressing up would be far more enjoyable if it had more impact on narrative. For example, if I could see MC face sprite near a textbox or something like that. For now, creating/dressing and progressing through story seem two different universes to me.
13. Most importantly, did you enjoy the game? :D
Yes, you've made quite a good game :)

I've got an suggestion for you, so check your pm, please.

@Vihrie: thank you for your feedback!

As for the bug you encountered with the gallery showing through the options, can you remember what sequence you clicked? I'm going to guess you selected the gallery, perhaps exited it, then started up the menu again, which then proceeded to still show the gallery? Knowing the steps is very important here, so please let me know :)

I'll make the word "return" clickable as well, if that gave you so much trouble :P

The MC is not going to show up in the game - most people voted against it, and they thought it broke immersion, so I decided against it. The clothing will eventually have some ties to the story (making the masquerade dress for example), but they are basically two different portions of the game. The story isn't influenced by tailoring clothes - but you can only progress the story if you earn money by making clothes.

I opened Neil's gallery, then clicked on 'Design' (not closing the gallery), canceled it. And then the gallery started to cover menu. Now I discovered that if I open the gallery after that, everything goes back to normal.

Glad to hear that there would be some ties between story and designing - it could become quite an interesting feature.

Thanks so much, I found the bug and fixed it. Should be included in the next beta. To avoid the bug for now; simply close the menu before you click on anything else :)

Beta 1.2 is out! Neil's chapters 19 & 20, and Dimitri's chapter 3 is released.

Characters can now blink <- that's the biggest update.

I wanted to release one more update before I went on a month hiatus due to a planned holiday.

Enjoy!

I have an issue, when i go to design, clients, and select a client when i create the design they want it says "™Thats not what the client wants,some things are still missing" and the clothes are messed up, like the patterns won't show right or they won't show at all. Is there some way to fix it?

It happened to me too when I played, but I just have to close and reopen the client window and it works again after that (>___<)

Updated the opening post with recent screenshots that reflect the most current version of Tailor Tales.

The next update should have the Clients fixed where they keep saying something is missing, despite you matching the design perfectly. This update will also include Neil's ending!

Oh, and some official cover art:

Oh wow! This looks so cool! I can't believe I've only found this game now >w<! I just downloaded it, but I'm really excited to start playing and making some cool clothes! :>

I can only answer the first question, and based off of the opening (which I loved! It really hooked me in!), I think I'd be most interested in Aiden! I'd love to see the exact story of how he and the main character met and their interactions! Plus he's an IT guy, and I'm taking IT now actually (if it stands for information technology?). o: !! But before him, when I thought there couldn't possibly be any more guys (you can't get enough guys of course :'D) I really liked Sam :> He seems like the best friend material! And of course I liked Caine as well, and James sseems like a tsudere? And do Neil, Dimitri and I share a past event or something(?) I think I'm in love with all of them :'D

Sometimes I forget I have a Lemmasoft thread.

For those that want frequent update, the blog is the best way to get the most recent update about Tailor Tales.

Then a Discord has been created for Tailor Tales fans, you're free to join and mingle. I sometimes post spoilers and sneak peeks on there :)

Here's an album of the latest screenshots of the game (it now has a quick save & quick load feature!)
