This looks great!
I always like games with kinda urban fantasy and where you can play as an animal! And this game has both it is really cool!
I really like what you have so far and am looking forward what the other familiars are like and how the Story goes.

I’m sold and my money already prepared! Can’t wait to see more! The accent is really cute by the way.

Aren’t you a time traveler?:crazy_face:

Choosing the dark amber option gave an error, other then that… i cant WAIT especially for the peacock route

Thanks for pointing that out! I fixed it.

Oh, is it 10/7/19? I always get confused with the order. Being Korean, I usually write 19/07/10.

Yep, it’s June! I’ll stick with you are a time traveler though(just joking).

And may I ask some details? Sorry if it’s too much, but I’m curious about what will happen in the story, I mean, some brief introductions about your story would be much appreciated.

To be honest, I haven’t planned out much of the rest of the story. As I said, my main wip has to be finished before I start commiting on this one. But the rough outlines are; You get to meet and compete with, or cooperate with all the other magis and their familiars that you can play as.

Sounds cool! So we can meet other ‘we’ and other ‘we’'s magis, much cooler!

Its a very good start to what I think will be a very good story

Oh, I am intrigued! Everything about exploring unequal relationships and potentially unbalanced power dynamics appeals to me. Also, Asa is a sweetheart and I can’t wait to meet the others.

And I’m kind of already hooked on this setting and want to know everything about it. How rare are familiars? Are there laws protecting them? Etc, etc. Tell me everything, writer person! I am a sucker for solid world building, so I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

Just a heads-up that I picked Asa as female, but the narration calls her ‘he’ fairly frequently.

Ah, thanks. The default variable is ‘he’, and I keep forgetting to add ${}. :c

Sounds interesting so far. I’ve actual got plans for a familar game myself although mine is planned to be preset to a female MC and although a familiar at the start of the game she used to be a witch and her current form is part of her sentence.

As a familiar she can boost her master’s power and cast some low tier spells but can briefly assume her witch form for a few minutes at a cost.

Good luck with this :slight_smile:

What you have so far is pretty interesting, I like that we have a separate human form.

There was a couple pronoun changes for a female Asa and I personally had a hard time understanding what was being said because of the written accent.

Definitely looking forward to more!!
