Oho! "Tell no one. Do not speak of the Otherworld under any circumstances." I kind of love this.

Second attempt, ruthlessly slicing frames for time in order to be able to put the text up separately:

I'd cut Grabner's "I am a living reminder--" line. The length of his sequence is out of sync with the pacing of the other ones and his dialogue will have more dramatic punch if you leave the first line out. Was thrilled to see the individual at the 28 second mark, if she's who I think she is.

The second version's a lot easier to follow, but I agree that you could probably trim the beginning of Grabiner's speech. It's a lot to read in a pretty short amount of time and throws off the pacing a little, since no one else has that much text. Anyway, I am so excited for this Kickstarter! :D

The new character designs look so so good! I'm in love!
Would love to see maybe a "remastered" version of Horse Hall with the new art style.

That said, I'm extremely stoked for Wolf Hall and will probably buy is as soon as it's out. AAAAAAA. The story seems amazing as well. And I also agree with the comments above mine regarding the trailer.

Third take, cutting Grabiner's speech slightly and adding a bit of Barbara in exchange.

Removing a line from Grabiner's speech definitely improves the pacing of the vid. :)

If you haven't seen on twitter, I've explained a little bit about who the WolfPC is (and why Grabiner is involved with his secret identity).

Knowing how much Grabiner LOVES his family background, you can imagine how happy he is about all this!

I'd popped back into the forums after filling out my collection of Hanako games in the Winter sale and, man, am I and my SO psyched to hear that Wolf Hall has some forward momentum!

So, I suppose, NEW BOOBS are a strong draw, but over time, better story wins out. -Hanako

I've read the posts on twitter about WolfPC's background. It's very interesting! I look forward to learn more about his family when playing the game. One little thing that stood out to me: he's using a false name (the name the player gives him, right?) while studying at Iris Acadamy. I wonder if his real name will be revealed at some point...

So here's a thought for you to consider.

William is assigned to look after WolfPC, so he'll be his senior during Freshman Initiation.

How will that affect the other freshman/senior pairups?

Well, o' course William can't be Ellen's senior during Initiation, and that means Damien's looking for another freshman. Y'know, it actually would make a lot of sense if Damien tried to become Ellen's senior, come to think of it. Seems like Damien's actively targeting wild seeds.
