Massive changes again. This time I’ve redone the first chapter. The game “cuts to the chase” faster.
Three romances start in chapter 1. Baiyu, Donnie and Spin. These Arcs are romance primary, plot secondary and the new format is true to that. Players that pursue these arcs won’t have to wade through backstory and setup of all the other arcs anymore.
Other arcs are plot primary, romance secondary. In these arcs the plot gets “set up” in chapter 1 and their ROs start in chapter 2.
Lots of new romance scenes.
Flashbacks are consolidated into one sequence with pivotal choices. Players no longer experience all the flashbacks, only the flashbacks relevant to their choices.
Chapter 1 ends with the player making a decisive choice that will reverberate throughout the rest of the game.
The demo currently ends there. I’ve taken all other chapters offline while I tweak them.

The demo has some replayability.
