So, the link worked and I played and I liked it. @Fawkes, you managed to nail a lot of things. I really liked the names. At first, I thought the game was becoming much more of a novel until the first choices showed up, but the narration was useful. While you might have put a lot of focus on describing surroundings, it helped make the Ophaesia Castle seem more real.
You got it good with the characters too. For me, it's a smart idea to introduce characters that are easy to define and remember, and then add more nuance. The king and the MC's mother, they're clear cut, but they also have room to grow. Especially since we're seeing them through the eyes of a child.
The intrigue seems to be beginning, all right. I have the impression the MC's mother is trying to buy their affection with gifts, which makes the king distrustful.. but we'll see how that plays out. I thought it was good.
If there's one wish I'd have, it would be more choices. Especially choices with very real consequence, ones that might alter the way I play and make my character more unique. But we're still in the beginning, so I'll wait and see what happens.
