Congrats on the release! >w<

I'll definitely try this soon~ *downloads now*

*played now*

Wow, that was interesting. XD To be honest, a bit confusing, but lol, fun. A nice little game~ The style was nice and unique, I like that.

Mind a lil critique though?
Something that bothered me a bit was the file size. It seemed too much for such a short game. You could probably do a lot to optimize that. In games, using as little memory as you could is really important since that helps the engine to work properly and most efficiently~

Another thing is when you release a game, it would have been nice to provide a bit more technical information. About how many endings there are and how long it takes to get them all and things like that~ That way people can find their goal, if it is getting all the endings or obtaining all the boys and so on.

I hope you don't mind me saying these things, just keep it up! >w</

Thanks for the crit! Ahhh, the file size might be what's keeping some people from playing this, as a couple of people reported being unable to open the game.

I'll do more research on that! As for technical info, I should probably put that into the release post or find out how to make an "about" file.

one thing that I did learn straightaway was the importance of havring Sprites all the same size D : Some of the size differences are super obvious yikes!

Yes, that might be a problem for people trying to play it. ;w; I wonder what's making it so big, could it be the music?
It's a good idea to research which are the file formats usually used in games and what's the best way to optimize and make them smaller without effecting the quality.

Ah, yes, making sprites the same size is really important, I've had that as well! XD Always adjust those or it would look weird.

It was the ending music! They were MP3 already, but I crunched them down so they're smaller. Next game I do, I'm making sure everything matches up.

OMG Did your fav artist reblog your VN xD THAT IS SO COOL~!!

I hope when I finish my project my artist would have seen it too ;; Its based off a band.

I loved the pacing, the Beast transformation and the attack part, it kinda reminds me of Juniper's Knot, how the characters are interactive instead of standstill with one expression - it gives them more life.

Ima give one of my friends this, the music is great btw ^^ She'd love this and maybe come to the VN side >:3

Oh my gosh, thanks! I'm glad you liked it, and thank you for sharing! Yeah, I wasn't expecting MEISHI SMILE to dig it, but he did and I'm glad. He's one of my favorite musicians right now!
