Haha yes, I just wrote "ave" instead of "ava" on a line in a scene! Definitely nothing serious, thanks for spotting this :)

Finished my first game. Got the Selfless Hero ending. Yay me. With a few strategic saves, I should be able to get a few more endings/romances without having to start over, though I will start from the beginning at some point, if for no other reason then to get Michelle romance.

Overall, I enjoyed the game a lot. I'm fine with sci fi, even though I prefer near future/cyberpunk over hard sci fi. Bionic Hearts card game when?

I liked the different ways to avoid combat with skill checks, though maxing out the different skills early on was trivial.

Combat difficulty was very spotty. At some point, my defense was so high that regular attacks (on normal) stopped doing damage, especially when my character had 41 HPRegen. Then some mob would use a skill that bypassed defense and take half of Michelle's HP in one hit. Feels like the difference between regular physical damage and certain non-physical skills is too large.

Just a few thing that bothered me, don't let those get you down:
- Lag on the exploration maps. Once I uncovered 50-75% of a map, there was noticeable lag, which really shouldn't happen on my system. I don't know if it's the small animations or what, but something really taxes the game/system.
- Combat system is starting to get very old. I know you tweak it for each game, but this is basically Loren combat for the fifth time. Another reason why PSCD was so great. (Auto combat helped, but I think my next game will be on Easy, because I'm getting tired of this battle system.)
- Rumi sex scene. This is one of those careful what you wish for things. I thought I wanted explicit content, but then the scene turned out to be not what I wanted at all. To my surprise, I actually felt uncomfortable with it. I guess I wanted a sweet scene, not crass talk and handcuffs... hopefully it's someone else's fetish.

Anyway, nice, long game, I think I'll go for a few more endings before taking a break! Also need an idea for some sort of extreme playthrough, like avoiding combat/failing quests, and see what happens.

Cool thanks for the feedback and glad you liked the game. Some random notes:
- I prefer cyberpunk too! Indeed if I do another sci-fi game it would be in a cyberpunk setting for sure
- haha wow 41 HPRegen is nuts, maybe I should lower that a bit :lol:
- the lag on exploration map is strange, I mean there's a lot going on (for a renpy game obviously) but I can't see a reason why it should lag if you uncover more map, weird
- I know about the combat system, indeed for the next RPG (I don't know which one will be, probably not Loren 2 since that game is too big) I want to change it. I might even try a single player RPG (not with a party) because personally I've been enjoying those a lot, and I never made a game like that, all party-based, so could be more interesting. If was sure people would be OK with it, I would even do a card/RPG game next but it might be risky...
- the explicit scenes are rather hot indeed, much more than all my other games, I was unsure if to do them like that or not, because it's one of those things that depends a lot on tastes, so you're never sure what's the right thing to do :oops: based on feedback I might simply have two separate choices for text and image. I mean, the "censored" romance is usually very sweet but then you have fully clothed characters, while the explicit one has those more erotic texts and maybe like in your case, it's not your cup of tea.

I usually don't have a problem with explicit erotica, I've played plenty of hentai, that scene was just not what I expected. I'll read some scenes for other characters, maybe it's just Rumi who holds a special non-filthy place in my heart. :wink:

Hehe, I tried to make them varied, considering Rumi's past I thought that kind of fetish was a good idea and maybe not what people expected. Michelle's scene is actually funnier/comical in a way, considering where/how they do it :lol:

I really want to get more feedback on the RPG part too. I mean, if people are happy with a story like this one but don't really care much about the RPG part, I would have finished this game 4-5 months earlier :)

I can't finish the game on the Shiler path. When launching the ship, there are 3 consecutive fights with C.O.G. Masters. I can't use the same character in more than one fight, but the game tells me I have to use the MC (Joshua) in every fight. He's obviously not available after the first fight.
