The demo has been updated, like I had hoped! However, most of the update is adding in stats, relationships, and some minor editing. The complete prologue should, and I really hope that everything works out, be done and uploaded by the end of this month. From where I am now, I would say I’m about 50% of the way there.
@lokidemon007 Benedikt is fond of Alexandra/MC, so he’s more of a ‘protective-and-almost-overbearing’ big brother to her, but Eleonora is not unkind to her either. Really, the only people who treat her poorly are Regina and Gisela, and even then, the latter only does it because of her mother. But yes, near the end of courtship phase, which could be either a long time or a very short while, you will learn why Burkhard is so uncomfortable and uncertain around her.
@Iello Thank you! I’m very glad you enjoyed it ^^
@Pauly51 Thank you so much, and yes, there are stats in this game. At the moment, and I’m fairly certain they will remain this, they are: arts, intelligence, cunning, etiquette, charisma, courage, self-defence, independence, and reputation.
As for Oskar, he’s not exactly in an advantageous position himself as a second son to a waning family, and in the future, should you choose to romance him, Alexandra will actually end up marrying down the social ladder and possibly end up as an exile.
The other two ROs are better for her social position, since they are both powerful in court (they’re electors), and are a duke and count palatine respectively, while Oskar merely carries ‘lord’ as a courtesy, and is only a captain in the military.
A few more quick notes:
I will probably do a few minor tweaks every few days and possibly upload a few more scenes.
Almost all the choices influence stats, skills, and relationships. I believe the only one that doesn’t is when you are checking Alexandra’s relationship with her family members. Please let me know if it’s not exactly working out in terms of gameplay/story.
Let me know if there is a skill you think might be cool, or some personality traits that might be meaningful. Likewise, let me know if there are personality traits you think are redundant or whatever. I’m happy to hear any kind of feedback!
Oskar is an RO, and yes, he is Alexandra’s full-blooded cousin. The other two ROs are not related to her at all.
Thank you so much!
