Toshiro seems a bit meh as a character, but Mikuru's story has a lot of relatable and realistic scenes and reactions.

The art looks good and the light touch animations are well done for the story telling.

That said, this is probably not the best representation of the project. This site has a number of issues that make the game seem buggy(even though none of these issues are related to your game's development). Also, this small set of scenes makes character development feel rushed and forced, not to mention that it doesn't feel like there are many meaningful decisions as a player. Personally I would recommend a trailer or demo video rather than a prototype for this project, since representing your hook and a good smattering of art should be easier there than in full scenes.

All and all the apocalypse is an interesting setting for an otome game and it looks like you would just need a pretty simple framework to dev this in Unity or Godot. You've even thought ahead to what platforms you want to support and I think it would be a great switch and phone game

Played through as Toshiro and then as Mikuru. Both were honestly enthralling! The art, voice acting, and story are great.

This is more of a preference - but a couple times I clicked and the story did not progress because I had clicked on the textbox (which seems to be the only part of the screen that isn't the next panel clickbox). Personally I would just go ahead and include the text in that clickbox if it isn't a hassle.

I used headphones, and all of the sound was totally fine. I'd recommend having them on low-ish as I did - even the "spooks" (I don't want to call them jump scares, but there were some sudden noises) were not too loud.

I really liked the demo!

Due to the warning at the beginning I didn't play sound with my headphones, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless! It was short but rather to the point. I played as Mikuru and enjoyed the scene with the found handheld game; everyone's personalities were developed nicely and clearly.

Looking forward to the full game! (despite being a wuss when it comes to horror games)
