I finally got around to finishing the VN demo! It took such a long time because I made sure to get all of the choices, and understand all the mechanics in this game. It was such a fun experience! It's great seeing all this beautiful art and fairly unique gameplay that I really can't find what's not to love. The choice system is very intriguing and I love how it all unfolds so nicely within the demo.

What do you think of Kairi as a main character?
> It's so strange! I really love his design and I'm honestly very surprised at how fast his character developed in this demo. I really thought he was such a sweet and lovable guy, but then the story progressed... It's a very pleasant change of pace, and it keeps me glued to the story. I want to discover more about his past and personality.

In which order did you play: the Komines' invitation, Isahai's photo sticker, Teru's notes.
> I did Komine's invitation first, because I wanted to leave a good impression, but it was quite shocking how it turned out! Then I followed Teru's notes, and lastly, Isahai's photo sticker. Everything really had a shock factor to it! Each scene really held good amount of information about the story. I made sure to mix and match the order after my first playthrough, and sure enough, I really like how it was told in this demo.

How difficult was the food mini game?
> As a food lover, it wasn't too hard. I actually enjoyed! Kairi's description of eating the food really made me hungry though!

What do you expect from the rest of the story?
> I think that there will really be a lot of mysteries just waiting to be solved. Who's the mysterious girl! I really feel like I have enough info from the demo to conclude her identity, but I have to wait for the full game! The demo ended on a perfect note to make me want the full game. Good job! I'll be looking forward to it! ^^

I really recommend for you to add a post to the Works In Progress subforum! I will really help to get more players to reach your game. ^^ I will also tell my friends to play it~
