Re: Evil Route Scene Guide (massive spoilers)

I was wondering if it was a bug! I stupidly didn't keep any saves from that particular play-though, but I'll try to recreate it when I get a chance and see if it happens again. It was quite a while ago so it might have been fixed in the mean-time.

Re: Evil Route Scene Guide (massive spoilers)

Think of it as a character building exercise. Adversity makes you stronger. It's like camping, but with less fighting off bears and more mopping the floor. The point is she'll be alright. Does Rowan's follow-up scene where she tells you about her father after looking into scholarships occur regardle...

Re: Althea Romance Epilogue

I don't even care how attractive they are. Who turns down free cake? Bring on the cake! I was personally a little disappointed to find out that the friendship paths didn't really have anything new when I played (I think partially because you'd offhandedly mentioned friendships as an option somewhere...

Re: Althea Romance Epilogue

Not limited solely to Althea, but besides the alternate epilogues, is there ever any benefit to being friends rather than lovers? No secret BFF scenes for anybody or anything?

Re: 0.9.43.1 changelog

I got an error trying to update as well, but I closed the game and tried again and it seems to have worked. Uploaded the traceback, as well.

Case grades?

What determines what grade you get on cases? I thought it was tied in to reputation/karma loss at first, but I've had cases where I'll take a reputation hit in the middle and still come out with an A. Is it looking at time spent? Information obtained out of information to be discovered?

Re: Moles, Queens, and Loyalty (spoilers)

They were planning to betray you in the first place. Pissing them off again probably isn't a wise move.

Re: 0.9.43.1 changelog

Easter... egg... cases? Is this something I just haven't noticed?

Edit: Wait, are those the cases that show up with one of the girls sharing a name with a previous Hanako Game character? (Briony showing up as the suspect in the goth case, for example?)

And on that note, why is her minion path listed as "Romance" on the ending screen?

Re: Ending with Alice?

In addition, being able to ransom/execute the soldiers instead requires winning the naval battle without completely wiping out the fleet with magic, which requires having sufficient ships and men in your navy on top of having decent military skills. It's a complex series of events to get there, but ...

Re: New version in Steam testing!

Can direct customers still contact you for Steam keys if we want them?

Edit: Saw your post on the Steam forums from last week, question answered.

Re: The Big Secret - Art Poll

Thais is staring directly into my soul and it makes me slightly uncomfortable. That said, I LOVE the Art Nouveau aesthetic. I'm excited to see the rest of the new art. I'm not sure it's something I'd be dying to have at release, however. It's enough of a "fluff" addition that I'd be fine seeing it i...

Re: Solving Mysteries - General Hints / Tips / Strategy

IIRC if you get to the hazing location too late, there IS still one way to close the case, but it's obviously a last resort. If you can't reach all the freshmen, the only option left is to crack down hard on the people you do have access to - the seniors. Sometimes, Suspend and Expel are necessary ...

Re: This is a really silly game to speedrun

Yeah, in hindsight, saving at branching points and reloading would be in line with the idea of fitting half a dozen goals into one file; I'm messing with romance candidates right now to see which people have contradicting paths, and it'd get annoying really fast to have to play through the entire g...
