4) General comments/questions?:
so technically there is one ending right? just 2 romance routes? or are they just similar? Looking forward to the game! Not reailly into romance but I havent seen a game take place in the 20's for so long! ♥
Thanks for your comments and feedback! <3 Yes, there's technically just one harem-esque ending, but 2 romance routes that give insight into Leslie and Meyer. I think the ending will shift a little based on whose route you played last, though the theme is "understanding both sides of the story," so it's almost like Richter's done both routes in the canon ending--if that makes any sense.

3) In historical settings where LGBT themes are involved, does avoidance of of nonacceptance/stigma themes bother you?
For example, while male characters aren't making out on the streets with each other, there's no shock/horror/etc shown
during romantic confessions or flirtations—even though such behavior would be unaccepted in the 1920s.: Basically what puubutt said above. It's totally cool to explore those themes, but if you're aiming for a lighthearted story and the audience knows this, there's nothing wrong with leaving it at that. (Besides, you could always use the excuse that everyone who happens to be paying attention is tolerant - unlikely, sure, but it works.)
4) General comments/questions?: Prohibition is actually one of my favorite historical settings, so this is super exciting! I see you're working with Elphie as well, I love her work. ^_^
(I STILL haven't played any of your games which is kind of unbelieveable... I literally own Requiescence and just. haven't played it. I'm kind of ashamed of myself tbh)
Glad to hear that people don't mind a (hopefully tasteful) skirting of the issue. Historical accuracy is important and I don't think themes of nonacceptance should always be left out just cos' fiction, but it's very hard to fit into comedy and not a favorite topic of mine to focus on. XD
And yeah, Elphie is great! Her key vis is beautiful~
If you have time to play Req at some point, I'd love to hear your thoughts! <3 It's quite an old work and not up to our current standards, but a big first step!

People need to stop making BxB games, because I have no time to play all of these awesome things
2) How likely are you to play short games (1-1.5 hours or less) if they're free?
I tend to like longer games, but I've been finding more and more recently that I don't have the required time to dedicate to them anymore. Shorter games are nice, and I'm more likely to look at free short games than longer ones (just because there's a lower barrier to downloading them, and therefore having them on hand when I do find time).
Re: BxB games, I know, right? Especially with Yaoi Jam, there's a bunch of great stuff coming up. On the other hand, I'm super happy to see the genre getting more popular and explored!
I'm the same way regarding longer games--they definitely provide more time for character development and a more fleshed-out world, but they also take
more time. >.< Also a lot more time to make, haha.
Good luck with YAGS and Xenopathy, they both look great and I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out
