At least on my end, I haven't run into other bugs except for typos, etc.

Prince Cliff
Absolutely not! I need the Queen to help me take care things.

Suggestion:
There should be an 'of' after 'care' to get:

Original:
Rebecca Fox
It's just...that I don't think is right to let that...'Shiler' inside our base!

Suggestion:
There needs to be an 'it' before 'is'. You can combine the two for "it's" to get:
It's just...that I don't think it's right to let that...'Shiler' inside our base!

There are specific training courses for all kind of skills.

Suggestions:
'kind' should be a plural 'kinds' to get:

Original:
Joshua Nelson
But...how is possible that he was so kind with you, and so ruthless as King?

Suggestion:
I'd recommend an 'it' after 'is' to get:
But...how is it possible that he was so kind with you, and so ruthless as King?

Original:
Prince Cliff
I am back. Mother? What you were telling Joshua? He looks a bit shaken...

Suggestion:
'you' should come after 'were' to get:
What were you telling Joshua?

OK I'm think I'm done updating the game now, since should be live in a week :)
Anyone who bought it want to test on Steam before launches? I still have around 10 beta keys. I would like someone who's going to play the game at least a bit (not necessarily until the end, but a good amount of hours!).

So, do you want us to stop sending in Typos, and such?

Fair enough. :) These are all rather minor, if somewhat numerous fixes at that, and I know you are definitely busy with other things.

Another typo:
Original:
Michelle Lefleur
My ex boyfriend Marcus...the one that joined the rebels...was killed by an Empire patrol today. He tried to ambush them, but he was unsuccessful.

Suggestion:
'ex boyfriend' should have a hyphen to get 'ex-boyfriend'

Original:
I've met Damien, the rebels leader.

Suggestion:
I'd recommend either making 'rebels' possessive, or remove the s from it to get:
I've met Damien, the rebel leader.

Original:
Joshua Nelson
Who are you? What you want?

Suggestion:
Put a 'do' before want to get
Who are you? What do you want?

Original:
Joshua Nelson
All the awful things we humans did in the past...it was because King Oscar. Most of us didn't even known about his terrible wrong doings.

Suggestion:
Put 'of' before 'King'. Also, 'wrong doings' should be one word. Finally, 'known' should be 'know'. And you would get:
All the awful things we humans did in the past...it was because of King Oscar. Most of us didn't even know about his terrible wrongdoings.

Original:
Jacob Miles
Yes, it looks like a Robobrain nest. They're like rats, they take advantage of abandoned buildings like this.

Suggestion:
The comma should be a semicolon to get:
...They're like rats; they take advantage of abandoned buildings like this.

Original:
Joshua Nelson
What you mean?

Suggestion?
I'd recommend adding a 'd' after What. This dialogue occurs while talking to Queen Shiler at the end.
What do you mean?


Original:
Marada's Queen Shiler
And I think you know already Damien, right?

Suggestion:
Just rearrange this sentence:
And I think you already know Damien, right?

Original:
Damien Vargas
My rebels and I will help you, Shiler. Now we know who is our true enemy!

Suggestion:
I'd recommend moving 'is' to after 'enemy' to get:
My rebels and I will help you, Shiler. Now we know who our true enemy is!

Original:
Tom Shatz
That is a model06 RoboAnt! And you sent these two recruits against it?!

Suggestion:
Earlier, a mention of the robot had 'model' and '06' separated by a space, and this entry has them together. It does look like there should be a space here.


Original:
Lisa Nelson
(Despite by best efforts to hold back a laugh, I let out a small chuckle.)

Suggestion:
The 'by' should be 'my' to get:
(Despite my best efforts to hold back a laugh, I let out a small chuckle.)

Original:
(talking with Queen Sophia)
Lisa Nelson
Why you say that?

Suggestion:
Add a 'do' after the 'Why' to get:
Why do you say that?

Original:
Michelle Lafleur
My ex boyfriend Marcus...the one that joined the rebels...was killed by an Empire patrol today. He tried to ambush them, but he was unsuccessful.

Suggestion:
'ex boyfriend' should be hyphenated to 'ex-boyfriend'.

Original:
Michelle Lafleur
I understand. So, what you want to do?

Suggestion:
There should be another 'do' after 'what' to get:
I understand. So, what do you want to do?

Original:
Lisa Nelson
What you want for this one?

Suggestion:
There should be a 'do' after the 'What' to get:
What do you want for this one?

Original:
Damien Vargas
There's a whole mess going on, and you keep coming visting me just to do small talk!? What's up with that?

Suggestion:
I would change 'visting' to the infinitive 'to visit' to get:
There's a whole mess going on, and you keep coming to visit me just to do small talk!? What's up with that?

Original:
Lisa Nelson
Yes, and for a moment...I thought to have seen something you. But I was wrong, obviously.

Suggestion:
The middle of the sentence is a bit rough. You might go with something like this:
Yes, and for a moment...I thought I saw something in you. But I was wrong, obviously.

Original:
Tom Shatz:
What you mean? Lisa, I love you!

Suggestion:
Put a 'do' after the 'What' to get:
What do you mean? Lisa, I love you!

Original:
Lisa Nelson
Oh! That's...I mean, is not a problem for me, but I'm surprised.

Suggestion:
Change the 'is' to 'it's' to get:
Oh, That's...I mean, it's not a problem for me, but I'm surprised.

I made another update, very likely the last one :) I fixed the bug where you could romance Tom after other romances. The bug was only in Tom's romance, now I have fixed it.
As for the achievement problem, I discovered that if you had already unlocked an achievement "locally" in the game, I wouldn't call the Steam achievement code. So if for example you had already unlocked all the romance achievements locally, and then started the Steam version, even if you played those scenes again they wouldn't get unlocked on Steam. I changed the code, so hopefully should work now (I'll retest the romances to be sure, since I have your saves now).
I included also those typos since needed to update the game anyway! Thanks again for the help, you've been VERY helpful 8)
