College student Amaranth ("Amie") was fired from her job at the library after making
a major mistake, and she had been getting rejected from all the jobs she applied for ever
since. When Amie is spontaneously offered a part-time job at Heartful Flowers, a small
flower shop near her college, she accepts without much hesitation. As Amie works in the
shop, she befriends three guys: Hisashi, the delivery man who hired her; Kennith, the
shop owner; and Ross, a regular customer and fellow student. Little does Amie know that
the small shop's atrium conceals a big secret…

NOTES / QUESTIONS
Does the synopsis sound promising to you? (I can't reveal what the secret is, sorry! please feel free to tell me your guesses, though!)
Given the minimal information provided, which character sounds the most interesting to you? Who would you befriend/date first?
How do you feel about the plant theme? Do you like plants? (or do you believe that 'plants are food, not friends!'?)
Do you think 1920x1080px resolution is too ridiculous for a non-commercial VN? (It'll take a while to download...)
Which character are you most interested in and why? Are there any characters you did not like?
Any guesses about what's in the locked room? (hint: not human skeletons, illegal drugs, or cats.)
What did you think of the 'phone' feature? Did it feel immersive, or was it disruptive/distracting?
Did you enjoy the music (disregarding the fact that it was only two tracks for the entire demo)?
Additional comments, concerns, bug reports, etc. would be much appreciated!
