The story of this game is very good!!!
how can I talk to the developer? I have some considerations to do :D

Hello! Feel free to just comment your thoughts or join our official discord!

I gotta say. This game feels really solid. It has a interesting storyline and I haven't played anything like it in a while. I look forward to seeing the progess on this. Definitely something to keep an eye on

Thank you so much! There’s a lot more crazy stuff coming soon 😉

Just joined your Patreon! Hoping to see more soon! :)

Thank you so much!!! I’m glad you enjoyed the demo!

Is there somewhere a part two? It is very good and i want more. :)

Coming soon!! 😉😉

(1 edit)

Im sad to say there was a bug that I came across when I tried to go into the girls dorm for the first time...and I'm not able to take screenshots to show and I didn't think to grab my phone. I do remember though one of the things I read was a YEP file... probably not going to help much but it's better than nothing? 

Anyways, the other thing I found was if you find Kuro (I think that's "gloomy"'s name) for the second time, you know in the church in the town with the academy you go to in act 2, and you go to talk to him, it creates an endless loop that you can't get out of where you talk to him and go to end the conversation, the dialog happens but it pulls you right back into talking to him. 

My final thing to say is, incredible game, I love it so much, I dunno if your doing this or not but there should be the ability to romance more than one person, and depending on how far along the relationship you get with them you can get buffs, either from trinkets or stat boosts if your in a battle with them in your party. But yeah, final suggestion which I think you mentioned that your working on is adding settings to lower the visual quality so that weaker computers like mine can play smoothly and not have a battle of over stepping. Anyways, rock on, epic game, exactly what I was looking for and expect cash from me in the future =^w^=

Thank you so much! I’m  working tirelessly on getting the bugs fixed 😅 there’s still ways to go but I did handle the endless loop so thank you for the feedback! I’m happy you enjoyed the demo! There’s sort of the ability to romance multiple people depending on who they are, some might be more open to the idea while some might want you solely for themselves! 

That's so cool! I found a bug and I took a pic this time! Do you have an email I can send it to, the file is to large to send here😭

Sephngd@gmail.com and thank you so much!

Now you're just spoiling us with so many choices!!! >w<

Even nabbing extra sweets from the cookie jar!!! Not just one cute cookie but an extra one too!!!

Going...to have...a sugar overload!!! Whooo hoooo~!!

Hehehehe the reactions of the pairings is making it all the more intriguing. Such drama such romance such mystery wooo!!! >///<

How is this not made into a show!?! The really feels like this could come off as something I'd watch on tv!!!

Aww thank you! I really hope it will be made into a show one of these days!

It's a good really caught my attention in the first few minutes of playing unfortunately it does seem to crash often other then that a good game.

Thank you for playing! Unfortunately still working on the kinks of the crash but I have determined it only crashes at one point and once u power thru that area it’s gonna be fine. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello, just a quick question, is there a way to play in something other than fullscreen mode? I want to record but I can't see OBS lol

Yes! If you press F4 after launch it will make the game go on windowed mode :)

Feel free to link me to the gameplay video!

I encountered a bug and it asked me to report it, here it is:

Uh oh. I’ll get right on it! Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

(1 edit)

Yeah, no problem

Found the same bug, right after the second "Lily Interlude". I think it is also the same problem that caused my copy of the game three crashes before I was able to get to the end of said interlude...

(3 edits)

Dig the game! But I have some issues with crashes. It just outright closes the game. I guess it's a memory leak of some kind, it can be caused by un-updated/old plugins.

I kept monitoring my RAM, one time it crashed at 5 gig of usage, and another time at 3 gigs. Not sure whats going on, it usually crashes after 10 to 20 minutes.

^The crashes was something on my part which I managed to fix lmao.

There was a typo in the prologue, but can't remember where, I mean it said "And so And so" in the second section of the prologue. At the area where there's lots of graves before the academy, at the end of this map two or three tiles down from the exit is a passable hedgetile but none of the other ones was, so I can step into the grave section of that map.

Thanks for letting me know! I’ll get right on it!

why is the game so huge for so short of content? is the rest of the content so far locked off until more roles out?. i just played for 1 and 30 minutes doing everything there is to do. so not sure if this warrants a 1 gb game. but other then that story was engaging and hoping you get to bang the princess with the other half of demon.

There’s a huge chunk of the game locked cause it’s unfinished and still missing some art. :) thanks for playing I’m glad you enjoyed it!

I really enjoy this game so much!!!!! I basically stalk it and recently created an account to say how this gem is a perfect find that peaked my interest! Can't waiting to know the truth behind this interesting truth behind the characters.Especially when it comes to the protagonist and the dual haired princess but even more so Icarus seems kinda interesting especially at the note that he is the only one that can't be romanced with when it is a male or non binary. So many things hidden within this game makes more questions and makes me play it over and over in different perspectives(might learn something different from different views). I did find an error in pictures with the non binary view in the bathhouse if you go to the male side the picture changes from the non binary one to the male one. Thanks so much for your hard work in creating something soooo FUN!!!! / (⁎˃ᆺ˂)\

Thanks for bringing that to my attention so I can fix it! It’s fixed and good to go for the next update! :D much appreciated! And thank you for the kind words!

I'm stuck under the church in the beginning with Kuro cuz he won't move and I can't ascent the left stairwell can only descend had to start over any tips?

Yep! This was just recently brought to my attention as well! Working on a fix ASAP!

I'm still womdering what the relationship between the protagonist and the so called "princess" is. I mean I originally theorized the protagonist is the king's daughter raised as a commoner as the prophecy dictated. I mean the girl with half white half black hair looks nothing like either parent. And if she is indeed the TRUE vessel for the demon like the prophecy spoke of, why did the king completely disregard the oracle's words? And where is the knight/old friend of the king that was supposed to be raising the king's child in secret? I really hope Acts 3 and 4 explain this becuz I currently can't make sense of it. Not to mention this game stands to be awfully short if the first two Acts were any indication. I have high hopes indeed for this game, but I just can't decipher the storyline with the limited info I have on hand. And I'm normally really good at that.

Man you're actually coming in suuuuuper close with your analysis o.o
The game will have a total of 5 acts with act 3 being about the same length as both Act 1 & 2. Everything will be explained in time! ^_^ but yes, there will be more princess scenes moving forward as well as a clear cut explanation of what her connection with the protag is.

as far as the knight and the demon stuff, it will be explained further in act 3 :D

Well I actually noticed just recently that the king has blue eyes. But shit Serrani mentions a father and I'm getting the suspicion that the protagonist might be a bastard. Sir Garth had blonde hair and green eyes. And seemed to have ahem... *feelings* for the Queen in the prologue. It would definitely explain why the king might send assassins after the protags family. When Serrani kills the king she says something about him ruining her family.

(; all I’m saying is stay tuned!!!!!

The update is finally here boys and girls. *le open pepsi* Cheers!

*sip, sip*

Hah, now let's check it!

Not a lot added yet unfortunately! But the story’s done being written now :D

Can you romance your sister? Does she die in the game? 

if more people demand it, I’ll see about a Serrani romance arc :P

Actually I’ll see what I can do!

My dreams are coming true.

I'm having an issue where the bottom and right sides of the screen get cut off and are not visible. It looks like they're cut off by the window size. The UI still fits the screen but the background is what's cut off. Is it an aspect ratio issue? The game is still playable but its such a beautiful game that it's a shame to not be able to fully enjoy the visuals.

Uh oh. The game runs at 1920x1080 but it’s adjustable if you press F4 to go on windowed mode. Hopefully that helps! Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I am have the same issue. F4 does not fix it. I am on Windows 7.

Just made a series on the game if you want to check it out. I love the game so much. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLheVFlYGOgKSEWVGUagGhn1hoMZg-GrGA

I’ve been keeping up actually :D very well done! I really appreciate the support and the kind words!

When you’re in between quests in act 2, you can find the other characters and interact with them like Killian and Kuro to get to know them better :3 

Next update’s gonna have toooons of new stuff!

Im so excited for the next big update can't wait to play more. the soundtrack is amazing btw

Thank you!!! <3 I’m adding something special just for you on the next update

OMG really.

Yep! Just put in Winter again as your name when you get any version moving forward so you can get some special stuff!

This is an amazing game so far and I am excited for it to fully be realesed. The story so far just grabs your attention and the music and the art is beautiful. I hope the full realese comes soon.

hey! I was having errors but I think it’s my computer i am so so so sorry!! I am trying to do a factory reset! Hope i can play your game soon

It's me it was my computer! Tales of series, persona series, dragon age series, tbh, i don't really play rm games, but I thought this was incredible! I am having so much fun and I love the characters and I seriously can't wait to see more. Already a big fan >w>~

Hey! Glad it finally worked! I’m hoping you’ll love the final version! <3

Deleted post

Hey there! I hate this so much cause it’s the only time I’ve seen this error and I have no clue how to help but I really want you to be able to play the game >:(

I shall see what I can do but for the mean time, errors like this come out because some necessary files don’t get extracted. My guess is your antivirus probably deletes them as soon as they come out? It happened to a friend of mine as well so they turned off the anti virus and the game worked. 

I’ll be working on finding a fix for it on discord ^_^ and yes the game shall find its way on steam soon! It’s already there I just need to finish the actual story first lol

This is by far my favorite game as of right now. If it was an option, I would pay 10$ just to play the full game. I loved almost all of the characters, and there was so much backstory that can be used in future Acts. From the protagonist being part demon and having the demon girl pursuing you, to the protagonist's dream of being a great Adventurer, it's extremely fun, moreso than most of the games I've played that costed money. The combat system was the only thing that confused me, as I couldn't see the opponent's health bar and didn't know what enemy had what moves, etc. The perks were also a great addition, it made it feel like I had so much choices in how I wanted to play, and the hero wasn't just put into a static 'choose a class' situation, as it also affected dialogue. I'm a very picky person when it comes to spending time on something, but this game is something I would play for hours.

The only question about the game I have is; Is Tyran a dude or not? I knew the character was one of those anime traps from the moment I saw it, but I'm actually curious now.

I know there’s some crash issues here and there but Tyran’s backstory should be somewhat explored in Act 2 ^_^ Act 3 is has them be majorly involved in the main plot ^_^  thank you sooo much for the wonderful comments!

(1 edit)

Aw shoot. When I reached Act 2 my game chases every 1 minute during first cutscenes and I have to start from the last save with Lily!(I'm sad...)

So far I finished Prologue and Act 1 so I'm going to speak from my feeling towards them.(Even though I didn't finished the Demo) I like everything so far the art is good, the story is decent and easy to understand, and the world is not too small and not too big which is good by my book.  The characters are diverse yet simple but not blank(Which is again, just as I like).

Personally I like Sam(Male Protagonist) and Princess Lily(Poor girl), if there is going to be a option I would like Sam and Lily to be official couple (I was choosing the "nice" dialogue options, because they are good kids and the plot looks like will have them both as Main Hero and Main Heroine role)! Unfortunately they didn't even meet each other but I hope Sam can help her!

The only problem I have is a act 2 beginning cutscenes and lagging in some parts of the game. But that's probably my old computer's problem.

Overall good work JaBud Games! I hope I will be able to play the full version of our game one day! Good luck! 

(+1)

Thank you! We’re working tirelessly to get rid of the lag and the evil crash bug :( 

If u can push through the cutscene, the game will stop crashing as often, plus the auto save will also salvage things for you ^_^

Stay tune! The next update will have tons and tons of new stuff after we fix the bugs and make the dialogue choices even better ^_^


Thanks for playing!

Nothing about Lily x Sam? *Sad* ;( 

(I didn't realize that you guys used default name "Sam" for both genders! Sorry! I was talking about "Male Sam x Lily" this whole time!)

Although, judging by the comment above me about Tyran. Maybe I should hold my horses and rethink about "main couple" thing.

*Khm* *Khm*!

Anyway, I finally finished playing finished version 0.9.1 and this time everything was working smoothly, thanks a bundtch(Well except the "meeting" with King William was lagging and game crashed again. Also there was a error when after joining Academy I go to tavern.)!

There is a lot of stuff to talk about! But I don't want to ruin everuone's fun with this comment(And my memmory is pretty bad anyway), but that clifenger at the end of the demo made me angry! But that's a good thing I guess, that mean I enjoyed the game.

I thinking about becoming a Patron member to sopport this game, because I see a lot passion putted in it. But it's my first time becoming a Patron member and I'm a little nervous and unsure if I can keep up with monthly charges. You see, I'm not from USA and my currency is asking a little bit more for say 1$ (^_^; ) Yeah, maybe I should start with 1$.... I'm sorry.

Anyway, hope you have a good day JaBub Games. Keep us informed about your god's work and good luck!

P.S- I forgot to write about something. I guess the one thing that cut me off guard was time. It flew out fast! It's not a bad thing though! I just need to get used to fast storytelling, hehehe... And I guess dialogue choices are a little bit confusing. I get used the fact that the "best"/"good" dialogue choices are always at the top. And while their ARE at the top, I need to watch cautiously to not accidentally accept the deal with bandits! Hehehe...

P.S.S- Also what are Male/Female Sam default classes? Judging by the main artwork I can say that Female Sam is Rogue, and Male Sam  is.... Mage I assume? (Even though I was choosing him as Warrior this whole time! Hehehe.)

(1 edit)

Hey! There are a *ton* of interactions with Sam and Lily later on ^_^ it’s just too much spoiler to let you know and act 3 and four are coming out soon ^_^

And yes the dialogue choices are sometimes scattered just to keep the player on their toes haha. Though most sarcastic options are found at the bottom ^_^

For default classes, the female is a rogue and the male is a warrior ^_^ 

Thanks so much for playing! we’d love the support on patreon but don’t feel obligated to do so. We will be releasing Rising Saga the full game free for everyone ^_^

Artstyle very nice.  The game is overall very pretty, and I appreciate the effort put into atmospheric effects like the  sun-beams, weather, and lighting.

Storyline is nice so far, albeit nothing *too* original. But, originality shouldn't be placed over execution, and it's executed just fine.

Most of my complaints are really just nitpicks:

A surprisingly large number of events do not have "Direction Fix" enabled, so you can click on an object and depending on your direction it'll change to look like something different. Also, certain characters who only make sense to be looking in one direction still turn to face you, even though their dialogue doesn't acknowledge your presence, so I'm pretty sure they also should have "Direction Fix" enabled.

A few tiles on various maps are able to be walked on, allowing minor bugs like being able to walk on tables, or get a tile or two out-of-bounds. Nothing game-breaking, however. 

Audio Volume Normalization is a slight issue; Certain sound effects are very distinctly louder than others for no apparent reason. (e.g. a character will have a voice snippet, and then the very next voice snippet of theirs will be considerably quieter.)

The first appearance of Fox did feel rather... obvious, to the point where I was like "Why are they saying that name and giving that information in front of a witness? Is it just so the reader knows for sure who they are?" however as that name becomes relevant later in the story I do understand why, but it still feels contrived and stupid of Fox, and when I first read it it felt very hand-holding to the reader. The twist isn't that hard to deduce, after all.
Idk, just a small thing that temporarily broke my immersion. Probably just me though.

I'd complain about the encounter rate on most maps feeling a bit too small, however the ability to escape from any battle makes the frequent random encounters more of a minor gripe than an actual major irritation.

Overall, quality demo. It's clear a lot of love went into this.

This game is freaking beautiful! I cannot wait for Act 3 and beyond!! :D Keep up the amazing work!

Hey there! This game looks so interesting! And I just wanted to ask if it'll be long before the release of Act II?  I haven't played yet, but I'd rather not play the demo if it's too short. Though, if it's still a long shot before the next act, I may just play because I don't want to wait too much either haha!

On a side note, I actually have another question. Who are the romance options in this game? And are they girls, boys or both? Not much info on that (or the characters at all, actually) on the game page here.

Hello! ACT 2 is currently finished :) and up! It's about 3-4 hours of game play  so it's less of a demo more of an early access title at the moment. Each act takes me about a month or two to complete.

For the romance options, there's about 8 of them main and a couple sprinkled here and there that aren't full on paths. There's four girls and four boys available to romance  and they're all bi except for 2 boys where one is straight and the other is gay, although the gay only male romance is not available til ACT 3. You can romance all of them at the same time and it doesn't lock in the romance path til near the ending just like a Visual Novel :)

(1 edit)

Ooh I see - for some reason I thought the second act wasn't finished yet. Well? I guess I'll try it soon then! Thank you for your answer!

It's funny, I've been wanting to play and more or less following the updates (I'm subscribed) for some time now, but didn't even realize this game could be BL depending on your choices, even if I actually am a big BL player haha!

So if I get it well, if I play as a boy, ONE character won't be an option, right? Who is it, so I don't try for nothing?

(1 edit)

It will be Icarus. There’s a storyline reason why he’s straight but it’s not present in the demo. Tyran is also complicated as far as categorizing but he’s available as a full romance path for male characters as well.

Thank you for your interest! I hope you enjoy the game! There’s some bugs and grammar issues (English isn’t my first language) but I hope you find it fun!

That's okay, English isn't my first language either and I'm not perfect with it, so I understand!

Icarus seems sweet, but even without knowing him, I kind of thought he's the one who'd be the best suited for the straight exclusive option, so it fits my impressions. I may replay as a girl at some point if I like him enough to romance him.

Anyway, thanks for your answers - if I have time, I may try this evening!

(1 edit)

Hey again!

I've been finally able to play the demo! Well, I haven't finished yet, but I just started on the investigation mission, and it feels like a "last quest of the arc" type of thing, so I'll share my thoughts right now even if I still have things left to do.

Well, first of all, really, the game is simply amazing. I felt attached to the characters very fast, and the story is compelling, at least to me - it's exactly the type of fantasy I like, with the added freedom you have by being an indie dev. 

I must admit I enjoy the music a lot - I'm a sucker for in-game songs (as in, songs with actual lyrics). 



I'd like to go a bit more in depth about the characters and stuff, but before that I'll point out a couple of things that may be considered mistakes or simply that I would add. 

- There's a faint square around Erika's portrait - like a border remaining from the original file or something like that.

- The game would benefit from an auto toggle for battles. It's fine at the beginning, but for people who grind a lot like me, it's nice to be able to just let the characters attack alone once you're in late game.  Also, I'd really add a text log - sometimes I get a bit finger-heavy on the mouse, and since the game is set to start skipping if I let my finger down, I may miss some text. A log would allow to go back and read it.

- As usual, a gallery wouldn't be bad either - it's nice to be able to look at the CGs anytime. Maybe even listen to the music.



Well, now for more in depth things!

If someone else than the dev reads it, BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

I like how you have such a huge array of choices all the time. It's nice to be able to really shape the main character as you wish. The karma system is nice too. Considering the MCs demonic predicament, I can imagine how badly it may end if you have bad karma later on. I'm curious as on why the demon was divided into two parts though. Many mysteries ahead!

So far, I like most of the characters. The only one I'm not so fond of is Myrana - she's really not my type, but I can tolerate her so that's okay. Icarus is very nice too, but fortunately I don't feel frustrated for not being able to romance him with a male MC - somehow, I'd rather have friendship than romance in his case. On the other hand, part of me is sad Kuro isn't an option - I adore him! Buuut... hands down, my favorite character so far has to be Tyran. My god I love him so much! He's exactly my type - personality and looks both! And now I understand why you told me he's hard to categorize haha! Well, that's fine, he's awesome as he is. I'll be definitely going for him, as far as romance goes. I actually like Killian a lot too, but he simply can't compare. And well, I like to romance only one character per playthrough, even if the game allows me to pursue various characters, so yeah - Tyran it is. 

This makes me slighly curious about how the bathhouse scene unfolds if you play as a girl, but that too, was fine the way it was. Man I love this game and this character haha! 



With that being said, I have a couple of questions too!

- How many acts total will the game have?

- And how many endings too? Are they per character, or are the character specific endings more like added to a global ending depending on how you played? Or is it something else entirely? Also, aside from bad ending/s at the end, are you planning some sudden game-overs caused by bad choices? Sorry, I'm always very curious about ending technicalities!

- Is it possible to get a good ending for the main story of the game but fail the romance I was trying to achieve?

- Will the saves I make still work in future updates? I don't mind replaying every single time, but depending on the answer I will grind more or less!

- Are the character portraits in the text box original art, or edited RPG Maker assets? The style seems like it would be the later, but I don't really recognize the specific pictures.

- And last one... Well, it's about Tyran again, and it's the most spoilery question I suppose, but so far the game didn't make it really clear and well, I guess I'd like to have a confirmation one way or another. I've been referring to him as a "he" and well, the game does so too. As far as I'm concerned, he's simply a trans boy, so that's it. But it may actually be the other way around - a "crossdressing" girl. By instinct, I'm inclined to pick the former option, but I'm not sure either, so yeah... basically how does he feel about himself in that aspect... Is it something you can tell me?



Well, I think that'll be it. Sorry for such a long post and for the amount of questions and stuff. If you'd rather not answer some of the things I asked, I'll understand, so don't worry about telling me... well, that you can't tell me!

I'll finish playing after some sleep and work!

First off, Thanks for playing the demo! As far as your save file working for the next update, it should! but i'm changing Emily drastically and adding some additional stuff to the game like 10 new perks as well as restructured dialogue and more CG art for scenes! I definitely recommend trying it out from the beginning once the next update gets released. I've also personalized the UI! Hooray! 
*excuse the big image, I'm trying to push down the reply so others won't see spoilers!*



I apologize in advanced for the lengthy reply!

I shall now try to answer all your questions!
*SPOILERS*-----------------------------------

- There's a faint square around Erika's portrait - like a border remaining from the original file or something like that.
Good catch! Thank you for that!

- As usual, a gallery wouldn't be bad either - it's nice to be able to look at the CGs anytime. Maybe even listen to the music.
For the gallery and the music stuff, it shall be implemented by next update! ^_^ thank you for suggesting. I've been meaning on working on that but I've just been too focused on the main plot line. 

- The game would benefit from an auto toggle for battles.  Also, I'd really add a text log - 
I have also tried implementing an Auto Battle system however it really messes with Kuro's reload system hence why I opted not to use it. (He keeps reloading instead of attacking T_T) Thank you for letting me know it's your desire as I believe I should find a work around on this feature instead of dumping it completely. Text log might also be a bit of a  work as the game engine functions as individual text boxes but I will see about this feature!

Bath house scene - As a girl, it plays out  a little different ^_^ you won't get the male CG art for it but don't worry, plenty of fan service art coming *especially for Killian*


How many acts total will the game have? 
There will be 6 acts as well as epilogue that varies differently based on player choices. I want the ending to be like a culmination of all the different choices you have done throughout the game as well as the relationships you've built. Unfortunately, I'm also planning on doing a singular romance option at a certain point so while you may build up romance stuff with everybody simultaneously, I do want a character specific romance ending with variations depending on the choices. *choices and consequence is a big theme in this game and it's making my life as a solo indie dev hell but it's worth it thanks to wholesome feedback from people like you!

 - Are the character portraits in the text box original art, or edited RPG Maker assets?
There are some original art I've collected through browsing the internet, Stella's faceset for example is actually the default cover girl of RPGMaker VX Ace! Icarus's Faceset is also the default hero for RPGMaker MV. They're edited but the busts I have are all commissioned work. Once I am finished with the project, I will be contacting all the artists that worked on my game and see if they'd be willing to have other people use the busts in their RPGMaker projects too! Maybe you'll see Kuro's bust in a different game by a different dev one day so keep an eye out!

- Is it possible to get a good ending for the main story of the game but fail the romance I was trying to achieve?
A goal of mine is to create a game where the endings aren't necessarily good ending or bad ending but rather subjective to what the player perceives as good. In other words, a good ending for you might be a terrible ending for someone else! :D hopefully that makes sense x( There will also be a secret ending which is more or less lighthearted.
For the romance stuff, There's multiple ways a romance can go but ultimately, it will always succeed as long as you keep at it. I do have to point out like i previously stated; late in the game, you'll be forced to commit to one partner just for ending reasons. You'd still be able to fully enjoy a big chuck of everyone else's romance paths however.

 I've been referring to him as a "he" and well, the game does so too. As far as I'm concerned, he's simply a trans boy, so that's it.
About Tyran, he's actually the character that I enjoy writing the most (Myrana and her over-the-top british accent being second) 
As far as him being treated as trans, yes, he is a full FtM but the constraints of the setting prohibit him from actually getting therapy and surgery and stuff. A big chunk of act 3 actually revolves around him so yay! stay tuned!
Some spoiler alerts here but Rebecca (thanks to the knee-to-genitals scene) and someone else in the class know Tyran's secret but choose not to question it.  The world of Aenar is pretty progressive! lol
On that note, I do wanna point out that while the game is very LGBT+, i didn't want that to be the game's defining feature. <3 

Thank you so much for playing the demo! I'm glad you enjoyed! The demo ends after the 1st romance scenes and you get a glimpse of the beginning of Act 3!

Ever since the submission for the Game Making of 2018, I've been playing each demo version, and up until now this it's getting better and better.
Congratulations!

I'm looking forward to the next update.

thank you! <3 i appreciate the support soo much!

I will look for the next update :)

And for the Karma how we can see it?

Hey! Very good suggestions :) currently all I have for Karma is displayed on the status screen. I’m working on an item that essentially functions like a moral compass as well as a perk description as well :) 

Cool, It is my pleasure to help, I have already starting 4 differents adventures for see the conation with all of the perk, before I can't find the trustman bodyguard of the duc and the lady guest in the mansion's mission

But it's because this is not finished isn't it ?

Yes :( unfortunately I had to lock out the mansion quest because I haven’t finished writing the mission yet D; but I’m so happy to hear you got that far :) it’s going to be an intense mission :) 

I will look for your working

Very good game, I loved playing this alpha.

Did you think to add one page in the statut to see the perk and their information?

also major thanks to everyone who voted RSO to 15th place out of 330! Super stoked to get so far in my first venture in indie game making! Stay tuned folks!

ACT 1 IS UP FOLKS!

It was awesome,hope for part 2 will release nest spring,It was fun and really inmersive but a bit short and I felt a bit weird when they just skipped 11 months,now will those become playable after the game is finished or it will always be like that and it will contrinue where we left of.Loved it 9/10

There’s content between that time skip that’s focused on just bonding with your classmates which is totally skippable I just didn’t include it because I had to refocus my efforts on fixing a bug and I just didn’t have time :) the game def will be improved upon by next spring so stay tuned! Thanks for the love!

It was so fun to finish the game... though i'm sad cause now i have to wait for part two
