Finally got through all 1000+ posts! I'm super excited about the upcoming game!
I really love the range of actions/reactions that the character has and how we can define some of the relationships with others in the game (i.e. how close we are with our mother or what our background is with Bobby). I also really appreciate the diversification of the MC; they can be good at their job or just kind be a bit clueless and try to rely on the group if they like (or not). Even the option to define how we feel about being a detective and how we came into the position is awesome. I think all of that gives a lot of replayability with the story.
As for the setting, I love that it takes place in a smaller town as opposed to a big city. I think a smaller town makes it more challenging for supernaturals to blend in, so they would have to be more careful with what they do. It's not quite easy to get away with weird things in a place where everyone tends to know everybody's business--no matter what power(s) they possess. Also, the dynamic between the hospital and police department is great. I've worked in places where pettiness has gotten in the way of the general welfare of others before, and as someone who has worked in various fields (warehousing, retail, teaching, etc.), I can assure people that no matter where you work, that type of immaturity is alive and well. Thus, it was nice to see that reflected in the story as opposed to everyone getting along and being the best of friends. Anything that can add more drama is a good thing.
A small note about the choice presentation: I truly appreciate the fact that the lines spoken are noted in the choice selection. As an avid game player, I have been burned so many times by paraphrasing that did not accurately portray what was going to follow after the selection. (I'm looking at you Mass Effect!) By having just enough of the dialogue in the choice selection, it really cuts down on the stress of making sure I am picking the correct option for my character, especially as the option to save and reload is limited.
As I am new here, I do have a question. I noticed some errors (wrong words, a few grammar things, etc.). What is the best way to report that? Should I take a screenshot or would typing out the line here with the scene context be enough? For instance, in Mason's route during the scene in the town square when they are having their moment with the MC, it says, "A flush of colour blooms on the Detective's cheeks, and Mason only just holds back from pressing the Detective against her completely, to try and evoke an even stronger response from her." Obviously, unless he's named a certain body part "Detective," something should probably be fixed, like taking out 'the 'Detective' or replacing the pronoun 'her' with Detective.
One last thing... Mason is BAE! I love him so much! I thought Adam as going to be my favorite, but Mason snuck in my heart and lodged himself in there pretty well. His smoking is a huge turn off, so I'm just pretending it's cigarette candy and that he has a sweet tooth because kissing smokers is nasty. Other than that, I'm really excited to see how his route plays out.
Thanks for all your hard work @Seraphinite!
