So I've played the demo about 4 or 5 times now, and I absolutely love it. I've been a fan of the studio since the early days of April was a Fool's release and all I could think was how similar this art style was, but I was so glad to see it was from the same studio. I love the training , and all the characters are so diverse in appearnce and personality I love it!
A couple notes:
There are a couple missed words or typos in the demo, but nothing so bad it ruined the flow
I would love the ability to craft more of a persona (Choosing more nice, mean, sarcastic, or down to earth options which unlock more on air time with certain characters, make tv rivalries, and ultimately affect your interaction with your brother)
It would be cool if we could see stats on your current singing and dancing ability, and maybe certain events you could unlock abilities to see the levels of the others, say in the second preformance when you get to watch some of the others you could gauge a range their abilities fall in, or if you slack off and talk to the others they may give you hints to where they fall
It seems (from a few play throughs) there is not much influence you have to shift your standing in the top three, but it would be nice to have something you can do to practice instead of being around the others at night. And just like Justin practices with Oliver, it would be cool if we could bond a tad and practice with another guy as well (like if one has higher dancing skill and one has higher singing skill they each gain a point in their lower area). Maybe even to the extent we could keep people from going home if we help them enough!
Honestly if none of these were implemented and the game stayed as its heading I'll be happy as can be. The twist at the end of chapter 3, the implications it has for the brother, how hes acting, the title of Ice, it was slightly being peiced together but not nearly to the level of twist that happened, even with the clue Jasper drops in the kitchen. Truly amazing groundwork and I'm sure it'll only get better. A great studio and I'm glad to see more happening from you!!
