Very innovative

The real-time element to the game was an interesting and pleasant surprise. It makes the game feel much more realistic, almost as if I’m meeting with and talking to real people. All of the character profiles are unique as well — nothing feels like it comes from a list of descriptions like so many other games with multiple NPCs. Really well made!

Some suggestions for future development: more descriptor and profile picture options for the player’s profile, activities to do while waiting (mini games? ways to explore the town?).

Like it

Please please make it shorter for likes and messages ? I mean , If you pay $3 for it then it shouldn’t feel like forever. Some things need better features. Please continue to think more on this concept and update it in the future. Overall , love it!!!!!!
