Just downloaded this and went through it. As requested here are my answers to your questions:

1. What is your first impression so far?
It's very short, but it appears interesting, so I'll continue to follow along and look at future updates.
2. Did you come across any technical issues? Did anything seem off or as though it wasn’t working properly? Or was anything simply bothering you?
SKIP mode did not work for me. Nor did the scroll wheel allow me to back up the dialog. (I'm playing on a mac.)
3. How did you like the character interactions, dialogue and the writing in general? (If you know the series, anything redundant? If you're new, were you confused/lost?)
Well, I am new and don't know anything about the "series", having said that, I liked the character
interactions, and the dialog, and did not feel lost or confused about the little bit of the story that was
presented.
4. Is there anything that definitely needs to be improved?
Looks good to me so far!
5. Any other comments, suggestions, etc.?
Nice job so far, will look forward more in the future (Oh, lousy pun - sorry!).

Thanks Philip for giving it a play through! We currently have a revised script for the next version to better clarify for newcomers. Also there will be sound :) Also did you play multiple routes? One route is the "short cut" version which skips a chunk of the game vs the other goes through actual work then the final part of the demo ;)

Hm, you had trouble with your Mac? The Skip feature and go back features are turned off at the present for coding purposes/problems on a Mac. If there were any other bugs please let me know. We have beta testers for Macs and PCS so we don't want to miss anything.

Will keep you updated! :)

@mayshing-

I did play through multiple times, trying all the different choices. And I didn't have trouble with my mac, since Skip and Rollback are not available in the demo, everything apparently worked as it was supposed to!

Thanks for responding.

Played through the demo.
I'm not familiar with the story.

Artwork attracted me to it and I liked the look of the two brothers and what I read about them in their bios and the type of conflict that would occur between them.

I think I liked the space-setting path over the school-setting path.
I suspect the school setting is much older in time and perhaps involves the grandmother Angel and that maybe the two brothers aren't cyborgs yet.
Will be interesting to see how the plot turns out.

The ambient sounds (the gurgling water etc) are very immersive.

Good luck with it.

Thanks for giving it a play!! We appreciate new and old fans so we can get informative feedback to make our content better!

The school vs space setting is about half and half, though the space/future is more, depending on which path you take. We hope you will consider playing the full game once it's completed! :)
