I didn’t finish it yet, but one thing I liked so far would be that we play as an alien here. That’s not something I often see in games (normally even if the game involves supernatural creatures, MC is still a plain human). And one thing what feelt a bit off for me that I feelt like the Ghost Queen opens up about her backstory too quickly for the MC. It was like my third interaction with her and she already tells MC her whole life, I’d assume someone like her would be more guarded than that.

Is the Ghost Queen the only female RO?

If you’re in the Philippines or South Korea we are unable to release there at this time. You can still access the games elsewhere.

Congratulations on the release @RoAnnaSylver — now I can get past the cliffhanger the demo leaves us at … your cliffhanger writing ability is very well developed :stuck_out_tongue:

Hahaha thank you! I was pretty happy with where that cut off, yeah.

And this is why I rarely read demos. No matter how good it’s written it always leaves me with the impression that it’s a cheap trick to make us buy the full game to continue. I’d prefer to make that decision based on other stuff (like how the world built is done, how interesting are the npcs, how we can build our MC etc.) than a cliffhanger.

I felt the cliffhanger displayed the antagonist’s passion and was intended more to develop the character than to “trick” us.

Perhaps I am naive, but I don’t think the intention was to deceive… it felt more like good fortune and planning during writing that led to the climatic scene.

Honestly I think the cliffhangers in the demos are only infuriating when you’re enjoying what you’re reading. Then its a case of “Nooooo! Someone invent a time machine quick!” :smiley:

Can I ask how do you see the achievements ? I can’t find a button for it

I’m only looking at IOS but there should be a button up top? Have to check others

I have a question. Rythm. Is it magic or more like monk thing in d&d (I’m in tune with everything, feel everything and react according to it)?

I’m hesitate between a magic harpiyae and and rythmic harpiyae.
Rythmic sound cool but magic remind me of the Carrionnite in Doctor Who, whose words can control and shape reality with the right word in the right place. The word-based science.
