Okay, first of all, this is (probably) the first comment i've posted here.
Second of all...
THIS IS AMAZING!!!
I love the sound effects, from the thunder and rain to the swishing of the sea. Also, I was completely enraptured by the background designs. I Wasn't even able to focus on the dialogue much during my first playthrough. Another thing, i found it really useful that the save/load function was in only one page. I wonder how you've coded that. It took a while to get used to it too. Also, did I mention, I love the little leaves in the choices? 'Twas Awesome.
I suppose I should talk about the character's next? I love all of them equally (Graham is my favorite). His route felt the most natural, I suppose. The other two felt like the romance was a bit rushed compared to his, but that might jusr be bias, since he was my first route. I just love my little art man so much. I felt like the romance between him and Juniper started spicy but ended fluffy. I like how he apologized and admitted he was wrong. Also, he has a mole on his chin, i cant get over that.
Overall, I felt like his route had the most happy ending. Cause it felt like his was the only one whose life had a happier turn when miss Juniper arrived. He became free to be who he was. Meanwhile, it felt like I tied a wandering spirit down when I finished Dr. Ash's route. Don't get me wrong, I love Briar. His eccentricities captivated me, and his character design was what prompted me to downloading this in the first place. I love his choice of words, and he's quite funny. And quite open. I did not expect him to be that...physically affectionate.
Also, I had correctly guessed what was happening to the secret ending. Aspen will always have a place in my heart. Anyways, it's kinda funny how most of the romantic CGs happened in nature (and very close to each other too)
Anyways, I enjoyed this. Have a good day.
p.s. do you have a pdf of that cookbook recipe? It looks absolutely enticing.
