Thank you so much to everyone in the Choice of Games/Hosted Games community, and especially to @RETowers!

This thread is meant for all post-release feedback discussion for Keeper. Feel free to discuss anything about Keeper or ask any questions about it below. I hope you all enjoy the game and I look forward to seeing you for the sequel! :smile:

For now, here are some FAQs:

General

How many secrets are there?

There are fifteen total secrets to discover, thirteen total within each playthrough. It is not possible to discover all of the secrets in one playthrough, or even two.

Is Keeper of the Sun and Moon part of a series?

Yes. It is intended to be a three part series. The second game is already in progress, and I’ll be posting a WIP thread shortly.

When will the next game come out?

Unfortunately, there’s no definite answer. It took three years to write and publish Keeper of the Sun and Moon(!), but I really hope to have the sequel out in less time than that.

Why did the opening change from the beta?

The new opening fits in much better for what I have in mind for the sequel, which is as much as I can say without major spoilers for the sequel!

Is it possible to save CHARACTER in Chapter 12?

Yes. MC can save Kol if they choose to: keep Reyna talking with cunning or intelligence >= 25; tell her to stop with willpower >=25; fight her with fighting >=25; or break the runes on the cuffs with ritual magic >=15 and elemental >=15.

Not sure why but this scene has been broken on each of my play through a so far. Seems like it also makes me fail the check after I succeed in it.

Just finished my first play through, it was totally awesome, thanks for a great read! Bought this pretty much as soon as I got out of bed and I don’t regret it, binge read the whole thing. Only had to restart once when I stuffed something up too, which is rare for me, normally I’m restarting every five minutes. Now it’s time to try some different play styles, thanks again!

I know that this is a stupid question, I guess, but what should I do to romance Katia? I can’t ask her if she’s dating anybody, unless I’m a complete idiot, but I’m sure it’s just not there, and I can’t get her relationship stat up to 60.

I have a feeling that this came off as rude, but that wasn’t my intention.

#10

Pretty sure it says how to romance everyone in the first post lol.

#11

Yeah, it does, but the “I was wondering—Are you dating anyone” part isn’t there for me to choose.

#13

You need to use the spoiler tag per paragraph or it will not work. =)

#14

Oh? So soon. That’s wonderful.

Meanwhile various Protagonists screamed and cried at the thought they would soon be rooming with both Leon and Astrid AGAIN!.

Hi! Love the game bought it the second it came out. I am sorry if you have already answered this, but how do you get Cyrus’s relationship stat to 60?

Congratulations on this release. Any plans on bringing it to Steam?

#18

I wouldn’t mind rooming with Leon :two_hearts:

Hypothetically speaking: if someone spotted a spelling or grammar mistake in the released version, is that person allowed to point it out? Or is it too late?

@Eric_knight is correct; sending these issues should be sent through the email support so that the author and CoG could filter them easily.

The author don’t have much say if their work will be released on Steam since CoG/HG will the one handling the releases but according to latest response from a CoG staff, there is still no plans as of now if they will release this on Steam.
