This was a really cool game, I liked it a lot. The characters felt very real, like people I've met before even, with distinct typing styles and experiences that I could understand even in that short amount of time. The only (minor) criticism is that there was one part near the end where two lines that I think were supposed to be Matt's were said by Ren. I think the lines were something like "I'm sure" and then "So you're okay?" Otherwise, really nice, polished game. I was able to connect with the character really quickly and that's basically the main thing I look for in a VN.
Thanks! I'm glad you liked the characters so much. And thanks for catching the typo! The new version should fix that part of the text.
