A very special shoutout to @DaveyBriteRPG - without his music, this novel's atmosphere wouldn't be complete. And to @kalilachan and @Guiguimu for testing. Rest of the credits in-game.

@umbralshadows ,

It seems i'm the first one to review your product.
Well let's get started.

What did i like ?
  • A nice opening screen.
  • The game had a good start.
  • I like the fonts you used.
  • Its easy to play.
  • I like the artstyle, i know its not Anime standards, but any self drawn picture means that you put efford into it.
  • The music is nice and fitting for every moment.
  • I like the whole story ;)
What i didn't like ?
  • During a "battle sequence with QTE's" when you fail the tutorial repeats itself.
  • During the first act, at times i felt bad when i remembered how my past was, i'd rather forget it.
  • QTE's have a small time window.
What did i notice ?
  • When i opened the folder with the Exe in it, i came across a Txt file, and it contained your username and email, be sure to remove it.
  • Lumin didn't have a right hand in the image you see in act 3.
What can be improved ?
  • Not much actually, but i can recommend something.
What can i recommend ?
  • I really enjoyed the story, and that is the point of your game, what i recommend is to get VN Maker when its released, I just know that you can explain the story more detailed as a full visual novel ;)
My final words.
There wasn't much gameplay, but i didn't put it in the list because its a visual novel, i enjoyed the story, its well written, and when i played i feel that you put your heart and soul into it.
All by all you did a very good job.

You're welcome, i can't say the art is rushed, but i'm looking forwards to your update.
Also the half moon and sun masks reminds me of 2 rare hunters from Yu-Gi-Oh!
Yeah i can find some refferences XD.
