Ebi-hime, i have to thank you. I got this game from the bundle for racial justice and equality and went into it with no particular expectations, and i was so incredibly, and pleasantly taken off guard by how much i fell in love with it. My first run through unguided wasn't very satisfying (i hit the "bad" Garret ending), but it made me want to play it more, learn more about the world and characters. I've basically marathoned it for the past couple days, just finished actually, and it's so lovingly well written it's inspiring. Even the characters i wasn't personally fond of (Asa and Garret) i felt more connected to throughout their respective routes, and i REALLY love that all of the side characters were fleshed out and got the depth and screentime they deserved. I love that, as mentioned in the notes, you wanted Rhea to have that fiery spark, and i thought that was wonderful for her character!
Not to get too personal or corny, but life has been rough in some personal areas for me lately, and this game really helped with that. Better, it made me feel like the stories i want to make could be worthwhile, if i put in a similar amount of love and work... so sincerely, thank you. I'll have to check out your other games sometime in the bear future! Sorry for such a long comment///;;
(Also Valerian is my favorite oh my god, would die for him, sob.)
