(I wrote this as a review, but putting it here as a comment too bc I don't think reviews are public & would like other potential players to see it even tho I'm two years late!)
Spent a good few hours on this game! Though I got stuck with the first discussion break (and later on, another one), once I figured out where things went, everything went pretty smoothly! I loved the dialogue and conversations between everyone-- awkward and funny and definitely enjoyable. I love the characters and the twists throughout the gameplay! I'll forever be in love with the game mechanics (the whole investigation + discussion sections) that I didn't know could be done in Ren'py til today. This is a seriously great game!
I don't know if you're still working on the sequel game, but I can't wait to check it out (demo) either way! Seriously loved the art, music, sound effects, and all of the game mechanics you put sm time into. Amazing!
