update: 5/10/2017: Thank you for the Daily Feature and frontpage feature. I really appreciate it.

update 5/14/2017: I have removed the typing sound script which should make the game run smoother on browsers and not abismally slow like before.

glad to play this demo, love to see more!

The pixel graphics are fantastic and the story is pretty interesting, however the slow scene transitions are annoying and there are a few grammatical errors here and there. Overall I liked it though, and I want to see more!

I loved the music and the story seemed to be ok, but one thing wrong about it all. NEED PART 2!
Seriously. This looks like the start of a full on actual book, a pro-log. A man seeking his place and a fresh start and a woman seeking to remove the curse upon her and shunned by all at first glance. I would love to see more of this.

After reading other comments, I gather that the story may be interesting but the scene transitions and conversations take far too long to keep my interest. It's rather difficult to get into a story when the flow is interrupted by waiting for each line of text to load.

That problem was fixed. It was due to a script I was using to have text sounds but the html5 version hated it so I removed it.

Amazing story and great graphics. Certainly worth the read, while it's quick. Just a shame it's not a full RPG, more a visual novel. If there'd be a bigger storyline to follow and actually play through it would be even better!
