So today I sent the PR for Loren and was quite anxious
The general consensus is positive, I got requests for review copies from some bigger sites. I don't want to say which ones because I don't want to jinx my luck (since I'm not sure they will review it even if they asked for copies)! Other random comments I got was:
- "This looks like a slightly more complicated than most bishojo." - my comment: yeah, basically, is a visual novel!!
- "Old school RPG's did not have crappy anime-like themesongs to them. Also, does anyone else get a romance novel feel from it? I have a feeling this is a niche game." - my comment: I like the music
- "Loren The Amazon Princess initially seems like a clash of content and style. It’s quite clearly a Winter Wolves game and, if anything, seems to be closer to Always Remember Me in its presentation and potential player base." - this made me laugh, since I think he's completely off-target with everything he said
I'm OK with critics, but I can't see one single true thing on this sentence...! closer to Always Remember Me!?!?
so well, obviously the mainstream RPG players DON'T like anime art, but that's not something new. Many of them (including some indie friends who make RPGs) didn't like the theme song either - I personally like it, but perhaps wasn't a good move to put a j-pop music in a RPG game? not sure really.
I hope the game sells enough so I won't be forced to go back making only VN/Dating Sim! By the way I love making them, but I would also like to make more RPGs in future, but they're much more expensive and time-consuming to make
Will update this thread as more news/reviews appears
