So. I came into it knowing nothing and expecting nothing (read: ie my feels were intact and my heart was beating along just merrily, thank you) then I finished the entirety of the game. and.
Ok I’m a basic gal so I have very few priorities and they are as follows:
FIRST you kill off my hubby Lu?? What ? I was ready for our 2-Day long initial meeting to turn into the love affair of the century (because am in love with Phil Avalos’ voice like ohmegee) but it didn’t happen and ?? How dare you ?
Then, it turns out he ain’t dead ??? Only for him to toss my sweet, beautiful queen (read: Margret) to her death ???????? Um, excuse me ?
I didn’t ?
And that whole twist with the truth of Sinnlos was something I just wasn’t prepared for AT ALL. like. I just thought the creepy lake was a creepy lake for Plot reasons but NO. usually I’m p good at noticing foreshadowing or just predicting plot twists in general but THIS ONE. You know how when your computer is trying to run a particularly taxing program and it starts making those sad human-help-i-can’t-compute noises ? me. 100%, irrevocably me . i . i just. how dare you ? my heart ? my JOY ???
This is like the exact opposite of the whole “my crops are watered my depression is gone” meme bc man do i FEEL like that morbid lake efhj
(Now don’t get me wrong I loved every second of it it was beautiful and well written and I almost cried but damn do I feel the inexplicable urge to crawl into a lair of puppies and just lay down for eternity)
Lastly, I really feel like this would make a good movie?? Idk, just with the grim and mysterious atmosphere, and the fact that you’re given very little information about the world but it feels safe to make assumptions only for BAM thou art a fool to happen. Quality content is all I’m saying huhu. ALSO THE ART WAS BEAUTIFUL i bow before it tbh
BUT YES I loved this game so much, the effort and heart that went into it is really endearing and remarkable. feel free to wreck me all over again w another game ;) maybe i’ll be more prepared next time lolol
