I just finished it...
Good story. it seems to be a bit typical and scheamtic but it's actaully deep and well-written. I really enjoyed it.
Taking part in singing competision must be fun. I always liked to watch this kind of shows on TV. Seeing (your vision of) what's "behind the scenes" was interesting too.
I really like the artstyle. Great sprites, well done BGs, amazing CGs
Interesting and different characters. Alice is my favourite. She developed herself the most.
Best romance option? it was hard choice. All the girls are cool and interesting but none of them is perfect.
Cherry is adorable but silly and a bit childish.
Mary is very pretty but a bit spoiled.
Taylor is laid back realist and the least girly one.
Taylor and Mary are complite opposites. All of them are talented. And likeable.
They are young but each of them has her own baggage of experience, sensitivity and some kind of "darker" side. None of them has "flat" personality. All of them have interesting backstory and they are "multidimensional". The more you know them, the more you understand thier outlooks. It's is possible to learn something important from each of them. Alice did. They all did.After finishing the game i had to change my visions of them.
For my 1st gameplay I chose Cherry as mix of nicest personality and smallest flaws xD. I think she is the cutest. I won the contest (and her heart) :D
The game has a lot of endings and meaningful choices. It's impossible to see everything in just 1 or two tries.
