OH MY GOD!! THIS IS SO KICKASS!!
I'm sorry for being so excited but wow. I managed to stay alive til the end of the demo because the normal mode is easiest, instead of the other versions, I guess and I played Royal Alchemist. This is definitely a step up, honestly. Not to say that the previous game was boring because it most certainly wasn't, however, it definitely gave me some headaches, trying to get all three characters magical affinities where they needed to be, going on missions, etc.
And to put it simply, the royal tutor from that series was like a "good" person. We're getting to see that the MC here is objectively a "bad" person. Beringer, one of my favorites from the Royal Alchemists, was after all, apparently kidnapped by the sovereign's people? If I understand, so technically, ummm, the MC here is infiltrating the society they want to take over. Potentially?
The insidiousness of it all is quite honestly my cup of tea.
Emrys is currently my favorite, but I like Neri and Darryl too. Iris is adorable. The cast is wonderful and you've done well. Ohhh man, I can't wait for the Kickstarter. I'll definitely try and fund it.
