  1. Whatever Rejuvenations flaws are in writing, all of them are compounded to absurd degrees by sheer character bloat. The game even lampshades it with Huey by calling him Whoey, why does he even exist at all? you could say the same for so many other filler characters who only exist to serve filler plot points, and yet the game seems to think you care about them or even remember them. I thought Gloia the hippo was cool, but did we really need cutscene time dedicated to Rhodea? It went from cool detail/easter egg to yet another waste of screentime.
  2. It is now even more obvious that Madame X is Melia, or an alternate Melia, given that Melia is able to recall Madame X's memories like how Mosely remembered her alternate self. A complication comes about, though, in why Melia and 'Maria' are different. What we know: The universe has been reset at least once before Clear, Kieran and whoever they're working for (which has already been shown to be Madame X) are from an 'alternate universe'. I feel like the wording is important, in that it says not an alternate timeline. The Melia family in this timeline is Erin, Alice, Allen
  3. I think for me it was by the end of episode 12, involving time travel for Melia to fight Melia (Melanie) while 99.99999% Melia (Madame X) watches while there's this sudden shift in focus to Venam and Melia loving each other that it finally hit me this isn't a Pokemon game. There were also plenty of opportunities for Pokemon to fill in the roles in the plot that just.. weren't. Spacea and Tiempa being superpowered people instead of Dialga and Palkia, the whole dreamworld not involving Cresselia or Darkrai, multiple wizard duels (Karen/Karrina), multiple robot fights (Ren suddenly turning into c
  4. I'm mainly here to say that Team Anti-assist feels like blatant padding, it feels like there was some perceived obligation to meet some quota of help center quests, but there was only so many good ideas for quests. So anti-assist was cooked up.
  5. I appreciate your response, and for that I decided to play some more. I've just finished up to finding the lady in the abandoned University. Unfortunately, for slightly different reasons than cited before, this game has become even worse. I hope the following might also be useful, but it's going to follow the same tone as before. You keep going on about themes, how themes shape the game. Right now I don't think you have the competence to carry them at all, let me be very clear. The message of 'inequality bad' hit me with all the subtlety of a screeching truck. There's not a lot of
  6. I don't normally give direct criticism, but I'll do so here since you invited as much in your opening post, and I have some respect for your intentions in making something that contrasts other fangames. Having only played up till getting supplied in Artemesia, I'll tell you that the biggest hindrances to your grandiose vision is A: huge walls of text, padded with responses from the main character that effectively say nothing, are huge wastes of time, made worse in an engine that only displays two lines of text at once. The premise of the story isn't the problem, it is the incr
  7. That is really unfortunate, I think it's one of the best pieces in the whole game in both the song itself and its placement.
  8. Bumping, since I'm still looking for Feeling - Beauty. The silver rise part, especially with the reduced encounter rate, was one of the best in the game.
  9. Remember that according to the hospital reports, Anathea (Maria's mother) is stated to have black hair. Madame X is 100% a Melia of some kind, or I'm tattooing Melia's face on my asscheeks.
  10. Yeah, I managed to recreate too. Still looking for Feeling - Beauty. Also, for the curious, Feeling - Evil is Gaunter O'dimm's theme from the Witcher 3.
  11. Desolation has a pretty impressive range of music, so much that I actually want to find out where a lot of BGM tracks come from. Most of them are labeled with titles and artists in the game folder, but there's a few I haven't managed to track down. Does anyone know the sources of these? Feeling - Beauty The track that plays in the Silver Rise cavern. It took me forever to find because, as it turned out, Caz actually used RPGmaker to modulate the pitch to make it fit the atmosphere much more, which is really a commendable commitment. Battle - Hardy This is labe
  12. Well yeah, poor Indriad was just trying to enjoy a nice day in his mansion and then Venam, of all the awful people, breaks into his house in the sewer to harass him. It's easy to see how Indriad would see the creation of humanity as a mistake just from looking at the main cast. It also feels obvious that Madame X is a Melia without the PoWeR oF FrIeNdsHiP, which is probably part of why she's lost the power of the Archetype. Madame X talks about Amber as a 'brat in this timeline too' like she knew her personally enough to be annoyed by her, so in this timeline Melia probably acted l
  13. So why are special Team Xen people needed to hunt down deserters in the desert sidequest, when other Team Xen deserters could have presumably their souls sucked out remotely once they're deemed useless enough? It happened to the Xen guy in the Garufa ruins under Caratos, and also the guy in Amethyst cave where we found the Madame X 3D printer. So why is an 'X-grunt' needed to hunt down the deserters in the ruined badlands city, other than being what I think is a Nier Automata reference? And for that matter, why are an elite secret group of assassins called 'grunts' at all?
  14. It should be extremely obvious to everyone already, but all the evidence says that Madame X is Melia. I almost bought the Saki theory, but Madame X's old full team in previous versions didn't have a single steel type and was just a really boring mash of powerful mons (Hydreigon, Volcarona, Goodra, Garchomp, Salamence) along with her Yveltal. aki also doesn't mention Freya, even though in that version Kieran already existed to give emotion powder. First of all, in the doomed future, she talks about how Amber is a 'brat is this timeline as well', like she knows Amber personally enough to find he
  15. At the start of Chapter 14, if you leave the Grand Dream Stadium, there is no way back from the Route 9 train to continue with Ch14 content. Also, in the first split control section of the space aliens pyramid, if the protagonist reaches the 'end line' first, you can't switch control to the other characters anymore. Didn't bother testing if the same bug was in the second section.
