Ratings and Reviews
my absolute favorite.
i usually have a hard time putting my feelings into words but i could talk about this game forever. the plot is so so good and interesting aswell as the character interactions. i love that its not the exact same story for each character, but instead different stories catered to your choice. the interactions we have with the love interest of choice always makes me smile, it doesnt falter your relationship if you dont pay to kiss them or things like that, in fact it doesnt ruin anything. AND the game has 2 endings for each character!!!! the writing is magnificent and the characters are so unique and truly are written so so well. ive gotten attached to all of them so so quickly and im excited to see the endings of my favorite two after they are released. lucio and muriel are characters that i connected with immediately. lucio seems like a jerk in everyone elses route but you see how good of a guy he is and that hes trying to change once you play his route. you can really feel like they care about us as they speak, the nicknames, the detailed responses, its amazing. i feel like characters who dont know who i actually am care about me and thats a comfort for me. muriels route has to be my favorite though, im so excited for the next update of his. muriel is a big comfort for me because i understand how he feels. sorry for going so into detail about this, i just genuinely love this game and its writing is perfect. i 100% recommend to anyone contemplating.
Here’s an Idea for you
I Love this game. It is endlessly amazing, very fun, well made, and well directed. The story is captivating, the writing is outstanding, and despite how much reading is involved, I never find myself bored when going through routes. I absolutely adore how open the game is, since most romance-themed visual novels tend to lean more towards females and females alone. Generally heterosexual ones. It’s really nice to see the female routes, and the intwining relationships between the different characters. Along with how carefully you made it to where your Mc can be anything and anyone you want. You can pick pronouns, and decide their personality, and that’s probably one of the best parts.
However, as thousands of people have said, the coins are an issue. You get thirty per week, I’m sure nobody wants to wait for over a month to do one singular option. I wonkt ask for you to make anything cheaper, I know it costs a lot to run something like this, and that you all need to eat. My suggestion is simple. Make the daily coins go up in intervals of five.
Day one should have 5 coins. Day two should have 10. etc. Day six could end wit 30. This way, not only will you cut down on all the complaints about money and improve play, but people will feel rewarded for keeping up a streak through an entire week. It also, hopefully, won’t hinder your money-making. It doesn’t have to be five, it could be two. Just increase the amount of coins you get per day.
I hope that you will read this because it is important
This app is seriously one of the best rpg romance games that I have ever played and I have played so many, online and app wise. This app lets you choose and change your name and pronouns whenever you like which is great because I am gender fluid and it upsets me sometimes that I can’t change my name or gender on others or I am stuck with this main character that I care nothing about. This game lets you choose to be you and I think that is the best part about this game. It makes you feel important when you aren’t so important in the real world and for once, I actually felt loved even though I knew it was just a game. I guess it’s the storyline that just leaves you craving more and the mini games are cute and fun! The characters are so diverse it’s wonderful!!! I hope that you will go far with this game as I have been showing it off to my friends, I convinced five of my friends to play it and they love and simp for at least one of your characters now. However, I want to ask you this, could you if not make a whole story, maybe make a little tidbit of a story for those who like Valdemar, Vladimir, Volta, Valerius and Volga? I know it seems silly but I am on an amino page and I’ve noticed that more people that you think really enjoy and love those characters! Please consider this at least. I hope I am no trouble to you when I write this, I don’t mean to sound demanding or anything.
