I’ll alter the original shy choice to something more wordless and awkward as I find that more natural than saying something (at least for me lol) but should I add an option to shy away from him offering his hand? I figured shy MCs are shy but not wanting to seem rude, so I left not shaking his hand to the rude option.
I don’t blame anyone who doesn’t like Day. He has a bad personality lmao. But I wanted to explore his character as is and have him be a contrast to the other ROs, so him being hard to like is totally on purpose lolol. Though I can understand the like for him on Tumblr, as over there I’ve already shown a fraction of the more spoilery side of him and the part of his trauma that won’t be explored in detail in the game, so I suppose there’s some sympathy there.
As for the girls, I figured opinions of them won’t be much right now, as they’ve barely said anything in the demo (same with Koda) so I’d like to offer more opportunity to get to know them. I AM trying to make the friendships as equally fulfilling as the romances, so that’s also an option, but I do hope you’ll end up liking one of the girls in the end cause I can understand the frustration when there’s no ROs that you like.
It’s tied to the MC’s mental health. Right now Numb rising and Obedient lowering is unavoidable but soon your choices will start to affect those stats. It won’t result in any game overs, just different scenes based on how unhealthy you’ve been in dealing with your issues. I just wanted another way to play, since one of the themes of this story is trauma and coping.
The next update will unfortunately not be complete with ALL of the hangouts, but Lily’s will definitely be in it so you can meet your girl before the end of the month lol. She’s super fun to write, so I’m hoping she’ll be likable in-game!
