Well it was a good run while it lasted, I am thinking about all the time I have spent playing the game and can't actually believe it's been this long, however, I am not going to lie, while I did enjoy it at the same time I wished that some events were better handled, more side-characters maybe, a lot could have been added and the nemesis characters could have been more than just flat characters, at the end, the game felt a little lackluster, it was too happy that it became a standard and didn't really get that satisfaction I would otherwise upon finishing a work of fiction, after everything is resolved and there's no dilemma long.
What I give the game points for is how it tried to avoid all cliche-troops, that made it fresh and unique, I still rolled my eyes at how 'clingy' and the thousands dialogues of Lyla saying she'll miss Henri when he's in the same room with her, it felt out of place and emotionless due to how repeated it was. The dialogue could have been better.
Plot: 5/10 not representing any novelty but it's not a bad thing
characters: 9/10 I loved Lyla (before she became obsessed with Henri and all she could talk about was Henri) the rest of her friends and even brother all had unique strong characteristics, loved it.
ending 4/10 though happy I still felt empty on the inside because there was nothing heart wrenching or a ground breaking conclusion, I get that the game isn't technically over but that's how I feel about things now
Art: 6/10 (illustrations) I had a super huge problem with the way eyebrows were handled, lol, I liked the art at first but towards the end the illustrations weren't as high in quality, I felt they were being rushed and every character looked different than it did in the previous illustration, while I appreciate the effort of all the artists involved I still wished for a sense of unity
9/10 for the models and the backgrounds, I don't need to explain, beautiful character design.
events: 5/10 the only issue is the short time it took to gloss over each event, it could have been more subtle and more stressful to make sure the readers were 100% invested and to also make sure they left an everlasting effect on them.
Dialogue: 6/10 I am little torn because the early chapters were great but as we gradually neared the end everything was going downhill, the dialogues were repeated, pointless and way too explanatory of something that the readers could figure on their own, I wished there were more than one perspective, not just Lyla or Henri's, it would have added more variety for sure.
Finally, I am very glad Nine decided to make this a free work, it definitely shows her passion and love for this project alongside her team, I am intrigued as to what she can come up with in the future and I will make sure to take inspiration from her for my own projects!
Thank you for this experience! it was most certainly enjoyable.
