The choices you make in the first 5 episodes will only tweak dialogue and things like that, though the final episode will feature a major moral choice that'll lead to either the canon ending, or a much darker alternative ending.


Sorry for the wait!


PS. Episode 5 is going to be the best episode so far by a longgggggggggggggggggggggg shot! Lots of twists, reveals and action!

When will episode 5 be released?

JackAstral responds:

With a bit of luck, early next week!

The main character isn't exactly easy to connect with so I can be happy when Julius breaks his teeth a bit. The speech choices and the way they are said make him seem like the real dick here. Julius bursts into tears and sputters a bit too quick. The story central plot is okay, but the pacing of the characters is a little strange to me.

JackAstral responds:

I definitely agree with that - I didn't sneak in enough characterization for him yet. Episode 5 starts with a flash back showing how Melonie and him became friends, so hopefully that adds a little bit. The idea is he's suppose to be really guilt ridden and scared because of something that happened in his past (which will be completely revealed in the last episode) - so hopefully I can work out a way to really convey that without slowing down the story too much

I just uploaded a patch now that adds some more emotion and character to this episode. I think it develops Julius and the MC a little more

The character arcs are going to be really clear once the series ends I think, though obviously I'll need to go back and express that earlier on with a couple tweaks here and there. There's strong characters in there somewhere, I just need to boil them down kinda thing

Good, more item interaction would be nice.

this one gave me the chills cant wait for the next
