Ruby - Dark -
I am ...speechless ^^ I loved -every- second of this game so far. So many great endings. (I loved the Cosmina/Reed one too, as it was the most classic fairy-tale one) But ..... - That - Ruby ending?
Utterly utterly satisfying.
You know what? I -loved- the artwork long before Amber's Magic Shop was finished, she's to date my favourite WW character. (and that' saying, I love -most- all your games so far). The conversations remain light (no giant walls of text) but it suits the game, as there is so much to go through.
Three hours of play today (VN 'cause I -needed- to see Ruby's romance and I'm not always very patient)
I'll be playing this for a long time to come, I'm enjoying the game, the potion making, and more than anything, the characters.
The artwork is.... you -know- how much people loved Shiver's work in the past, it's what I would want -so- many more games to look like.
The animation, the music, I could go on. I did not set out to write a review now, but it's hard not to share a little of how much i love this game. (even with hours of dungeoneering and d'venturing) .
I hope this outsells everything you've done to date. In my mind, it deserves it. (even if I -highly- enjoyed Loren (near perfect), Seasons of the Wolf (:( romances?+++), Queen of Thieves (so many options), even Heirs and Graces ('cause -terrific writing), Roomates ('cause fun, and -such- a happy atmosphere), C14 (loved the arts and characters), Nicole ('cause, fantastic written characters, and art, and music), mmh, did I mention Love and Order (again fantastic art loved the setting), Planet Stronghold (fun characters, fun rpg), the Heileens (especially 3rd), Spirited Heart (discovered it shortly after Cute Knight - Hanako originally sent me), in short? Winterwolves, you make great games, a lot of people enjoy.
Amber my favourite one to date. There, enough praise for now
Have to save some for an actual review
Only two comments on the in game text (and one little weird change of attire mid-scene)
