Well something to remember for future games, no randomized missions. Of course SOME people liked it, but I think the majority didn't.
Random missions are not necessarily a bad thing. It's just there are not enough variety or complexity within the robbery missions to want to do them repeatedly. Unfortunately, you don't have much of a choice given the relatively large money quota for amount earned in a mission.

Yes the problem is that with this VN/RPG system it's not possible to have enough variety. I made a lot of rooms and stuff, with random outcomes (so same room could have different ones) but even when I started playtesting myself I noticed there wasn't enough variety, but simply because the system couldn't work well. There are over 60 different rooms, with about 40-45 of them having at least 3 variations, but that wasn't enough...

I played in RPG mode. I think both the combat system and exploration on the map were quite fun!

The problem was the tediousness of grinding enough gold to move on to the next part of the story. But I wouldn't have minded seeing these systems in more of a story-driven game.

Yes no more randomized missions in my future games :)
