I thought to do an update: Fen has been working like crazy in past months, and this one in particular he managed to write 45,000 words! (and of which quality...).
While the game is still FAR from being finished (needs still a lot of art, and the script is only in word format so needs to be "formatted" into Ren'Py, then added all the characters, etc is a long process) I am really enthusiast about it: there are A LOT of choices!! and they impact the story in several ways. Fewer combats than SOTW, but I will do my best to make each fight a "puzzle" so worth trying different approaches to them.
Quoting a tutorial phrase from the game:
"you can tailor the game to play in the style you are most happy with: as a combat-oriented RPG, for example; or a stealth- and charm-based adventure game."
