Finally! I thought this game would never even get released,but the wait is certainly worth it. The current plot is pretty good,though it kinda SCREAMS of the anime Another in it,but still,it is pretty great. And what is up with the weather and storms anyway? Will it have any relation to the story? You could probably make the weather gradually worsen over the course of the game series,to reflect how the story takes a darker turn every time,maybe even make the storm cause a flash flood or a hailstorm. But enough of the meteorologic stuff,lets talk about the choices. I kinda have some concerns over them,as it was stated they will only affect dialogue and nothing else until episode 6. I would suggest you could make several points in the game where it is possible to perhaps save a certain character,for freedom of choice s sake. :D Or,if you already got it fleshed out,you could revisit the previous episodes and add meaningful choices to it after you finish the finale. That way,it would not affect the speed of development and it would make for a pretty good update. Anyways,overall,i rate it 5 out of 5 stars,and i am looking forward to see how is it gonna tie in with Zone Zero and Clear Moon,as i noticed the chronicle bulletin poster,which means it will take place at around the same as chronicle bulletin did? Anyways,looking forward again to episode 2. Sorry for this TL:DR post.
