Loved the demo! So here's my feedback:

  1. What do you think about the main character, Masa?
    I really liked him! He's obviously has sutff going on and trauma for something that happened while in Red. His quest to find himself and his place is totally relatable, and can't wait to know more about his past.
  2. Who's your favorite character so far and why?
    I don't think I have one! The whole cast shine on it's own way! Jericho is the good guy(TM), but has his flaws. Kaimana is a beeetch(TM), but a likeable one and not a total pain in the butt. Zosying I don't have an opinion, would need some more time with him.
  3. How's the pacing and writing?
    I wouls say good! Like, I couldn't point out a scene that was dragging or I wish it wasn't there, so everything in place seem fine!
  4. How's the story and plot? What do you think will happen?
    I have no idea, and I'm all in to find out what's next! Hoping to find out what the shield you get at the end is all about.
  5. What aspects of the game do you like?
    Loved the dynamics and interactions of the characters! And that when they're out of sight, there's a little icon with "audio only" on it.
  6. How is the UI?  What did you like about it? What did you not like about it? 
    The UI is really good! Particularly loved the hirizontal bars transition effects
  7. What other improvements can I make to enhance your experience?
    I was just wanting to look around in the dungeon crawling section, but I kept getting those phrases in the middle of the screen, just by looking to the sides all the time. Maybe limit them to when you advance in the maze? The minimap was a nice touch.

    Can't wait for future updates and for the full release!

Hello! Thank you so much for playing and leaving feedback! I'll see what I can do about the amount of times the phrases appear during the dungeon crawl. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience so far, though! I'm excited to work on this again when I finish my other projects. Thank you very much~ cx

Does it work on 32-bit Windows machines I really really really want to play it

I have fallen in love immediately!

(^///^)

I love the mix of the mecha genre, lgtb romance, and good psychological plot with elements of horror<3.

This looks like it's going to be a wonderful game!

I already want to play it<3<3.

P.S .: Will there be NSFW scenes or an NSFW patch<3<3<3?

You can't make the main characters incredibly sexy, and not give us NSFW, that's cruel! (T///T)

P.S.2 .: Even if you don't give us NSFW, the game will still look interesting to me, and I will still love you<3<3<3<3.

ahh yayy~ thanks so much for your comment! i'm glad you enjoyed it! as of right now, i have no plans to make this NSFW. 

i have thought about a NSFW DLC, but that's in the far future. if you like seeing these characters, i have drawn them a lot in the past! they're rly fun to draw hahaha. maybe i'll collect it all in an artbook. we'll see...

thank you for your interest!

A shame about the lack of NSFW but I guess that'd be a nice change of pace for me lol this kind of VN with a more serious story with nice gay romance that isn't just set in urban life or school is just exactly what I'm looking for. Looking forward to it!

Heyy Ari! I just had to play Fleeting right as it came out, and this was such a lovely break from homework. This was such an amazing demo so I'll just dump my thoughts into the feedback questions <3

  1. What do you think about the main character, Masa?
    1. It's unusual to see a protagonist who seems more introverted/serious but also clearly has a violent streak. It makes him very interesting! It's refreshing for the story to be from his perspective
  2. Who's your favorite character so far and why? 
    1. Masa himself, haha. I just think he's the most compelling character and I relate to him the most.
  3. How's the pacing and writing?
    1. Soooo good!! I've played your other games and the mood and storytelling is so much more present in this game. I like how the scenes are broken up with the dream sequences, and makes the story easy to follow.
  4. How's the story and plot? What do you think will happen?
    1. I think the captain and Kai will be constantly fighting for the alien guy. Maybe the crew gets torn apart and Masa joins Kai's excaliber? Idk Masa and the LI's just seem like they're meant to be in a separate crew together.
  5. What aspects of the game do you like?
    1. The LI's are super flawed. Kai is a prickly dude through and through which was great lol. I think some games fall into the trap of trying to have every character be likable and sometimes do a 180 on a character's mean attitude because the players have to romance them. Even Jeri who's supposed to be the nice guy can be a push over sometimes...I like that!
  6. How is the UI?  What did you like about it? What did you not like about it? 
    1. Love it, the UI is really nice. The change in portraits and everything fits well with the game's aesthetic. The font is readable, animations are just right, and the side portraits for audio only conversations are cool. 
  7. What other improvements can I make to enhance your experience?
    1. This is nitpicky, but when the affection point goes up maybe there's like words that indicate who it's for? Like "Kai affection/friendship up" or something like that because I'm dumb and didn't realize if I made the right choice hahaha

AAAHH~ sobs thank you, bb~ i'm so glad you enjoyed it!! i love characters like masa! i'm glad you can relate to him too! i was worried he'd be unrelatable c':  also, i really appreciate flawed characters! they seem more real to me, so i'm glad you dig that! i'm excited to show how their relationships will develop with masa! 

as for the affection points, i think that's a great idea! i'll incorporate it somewhere xDD

EEE~ thanks again for sharing your thoughts! i'm excited to continue working on this when i can! Cx
