Crafting screen, won't be as complex as Planet Stronghold 2 but will offer some upgrade options (useful to keep a weapon you like up to date) and of course potion brewing. Considering Lydia is one of the best alchemists of whole Aravorn (at the times of this story, Amber is not yet born!) it makes sense I think :)

a while ago some people asked me when we'll see those amazons with diverse bodies (not the classic pin-up models) and here's one, Ursula the right hand of Breza. Why is Breza there instead of Loren? Well, as a general rule I will try to avoid using past love interests in games which don't have them as romance options, so people who want to roleplay and remain loyal can not romance anyone except their "canon" romance :)

Gruff is right, would be a pity to kill such a cute necromancer indeed! :mrgreen: This is one quest in which you'll be able to kill A, kill B, or kill A+B!

Haha no clue. I mean, after this I still have 3 more spin off games to do, and each one takes 1 year, so...

There's a demo now on Steam, it shows on the right column on the store page here:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1629 ... _Marriage/

(no clue why lol, instead of the big play demo button I see that).

Note that being a demo, I didn't include all the suggestive option. Changing the party member clothes is enabled, but for example Jul has the censored version of her outfit but in the final game you'll be able to choose what to see :)

Right off the bat, I wonder if it might be better to phrase the starting choice as simply asking whether or not the player was in a relationship with Myrth, instead of making it an explicit choice between Myrth or nobody. That way, players who want to "stay true" don't have to read about how they were too focused on the mission for romance.

I thought about that, but then in the story if you don't pick any starting romance, in the dialogues the game assumes you're single, so it wouldn't work either. I couldn't take into account every possible romance even if not present in one of the stories, otherwise would have been complex. It was already hard to make the game as it is after PS2 burn out :D
