Don't let anyone meddle in your game. It's your idea, your concept; stick with it being yours.
That's my advice.
A full year. I think I spent about 4 hours every single day for the full 365 days.

Well, my first game was the largest one I've made ironically. (50 ~ 60 hours of game play with 92 quests)

Shelling out 110 USD for a Steam product page is a good investment.
It may seem like too much for indie projects but getting it on Steam does...
I'd say developing an adult game is harder than developing a normal game. The audience is quite picky.
