Wow this was amazing! The visuals looked so great and I have now played for a little while and I really like it. The card part of the game was genius and the story over all really pulled me in :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
Loving it! Grabbed it because I love dialogue / choice / story heavy but really enjoyed the card mechanics far more than I was expecting too! I mentioned it in the Steam comments on the update, but I think going with the bigger pictures in dialogue is a great move. Especially when you have six people in a conversation having more clearly presented who is speaking would be fantastic. Love it!
Just spent a few hours playing this, and I'm hooked. I recently used a condensed version of the rpg/card tournament plot for a game jam entry, but your work is on another level entirely. I really like the visual aesthetic, and the music is incredible. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here. Very nice job.
Thank you for letting me know and sorry that is happening to you! I just tested it and I did not have that problem. And no one else so far has reported this issue. In order to better solve this would you mind answer a couple of questions?
