Suggested Route Order (NO SPOILERS)

#1 Postby hanako » Mon Feb 25, 2013 1:52 am

For people trying to get the 'optimal' progression of uncovering information about the game, my suggestion would be:

Oscar
Gaston
Nazagi
Callum


... even if you don't care for Gaston, his path is worth doing, it may surprise you.

That's why I'm posting what I suggest is the best order. :P

I'd suggest-
Oscar
Nazagi
Gaston
Callum

Sort of in rough order of just how much of the plot behind everything is revealed (from least amount to most).
...I may be a little foggy on the middle two, though, as I played Nazagi's stuff last.

I went

Nazagi
Gaston
Oscar
Callum

Oddly, this made it more interesting! While the first one gives you a lot of information it keeps you on your toes and makes you wonder. . . what could I do to be happy and keep Cassidy happy too? The second, I felt it left Maddy unfulfilled while keeping Cassidy happy. Oscar- it gave this really intense feeling of action and mayhem, and Callum

Callum just fills in ALL THE GAPS

Oh, and personally I went-
Gaston (because I HAD to find out what was up with him XD)
Oscar
Callum
Nazagi

Just for my opinion, Callum's Happy Ending was sort of the 'golden ending' where you found out a lot of info and it was really SUPER happy, so I kind of wished I'd saved him for the last.

I still have to play Oscar's route, I'm doing that one last.

Not sure how it turned out like this but my order is:

Callum
Gaston
Nazagi
Oscar

I felt like Callum's route left a lot of gaps about Cassidy's personal life and experiences so if I'd played it last I would have felt less illuminated, maybe. Then again, it did reveal Dolores's role in the puzzle and made the alternate theories about her obsolete, so I can see why you would play it last. I imagine Oscar knows the least about what happens.

...But Dolores's end is still best.

I agree that Hanako's suggested route probably would have been best... I ended up playing a little 'out of order', so it occasionally felt frustrating when I (as a player) already know how it REALLY happened, while the characters don't.

I ended up playing in this order:

Callum (OMG so amazing!)
Gaston (sweet and hilarious!)
Oscar (sweet. d'aw)
Nazagi (maybe the most practical/realistic, but didn't give me the warm and fuzzies)

-Oscar
-Callum
-Nazagi
-Gaston

My route went like this:

Gaston

I am quite glad I left the troubled prince for last.

I really wish I had seen this before I started playing. I went:

Forever Alone
Nazagi
Gaston
Callum
Oscar (never liked the kid much to be honest)

It was a very weird way to go. I would not suggest it.

You know, I really dislike his sprite (still do, his CG version has a much better colour palette), but I chose him as my second anyway as I thought he might have more interesting info for me to get.

I'm going:

Callum
Gaston
Nazagi
Oscar

Because of them all, I was really not interested in Oscar. He'll have to pull something awesome to top Gaston.

My recommendation is a little different (note: this isn't my personal route order, but then I was thrashing in the dark)

Oscar (fairy-tale romance)
Callum (reveals the secrets of the setting)
Nazagi (fills in the gaps in Callum's explanation)
Gaston (I kind of think of this route as a side story, best done at the end because it's a cute and funny route)

I did Callum's first, with another ending in that direction as a reload, and was deliberately trying to play Madeleine as someone who was trying to figure things out, and who may or may not have been entirely serious about Callum at first.

I think that it worked out pretty well! It's odd to get so much information front-loaded like that, but at least I felt as if the game was playing along with my push to figure it out? My thoughts tended to be pretty well-aligned with Madeleine's at the decision points.

Gaston's was next, and was great in many ways. I haven't done the others yet, but I think they'll be rewarding whether or not I already know the major plot points. Nazagi's still a mystery, and I'm not sure what to expect from Oscar's route besides the possibility of fluff or cruel disillusionment.
