** ProfessorX's route is only unlockable after playing through BestestBB's, OffKey's, and watcher's routes first. If you would like to bypass this (not recommended), set your username to "LittleRabbit".
** The recommended route order is BestestBB = OffKey => watcher => ProfessorX.
This game legitimately had me rolling. Loved all of the routes and even the side characters. I also enjoyed the selection of creatures-they’re more unique than the more popular creatures we see picked in urban fantasy.
All this being said, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed even the side cast, since they’re interesting in their own right-Kappacciuno is hilarious, and even the more problematic members had their own charm. I found myself wishing Kappa even had a route of their own, but that’s not possible for canon reasons, lol.
Love the unique angle and the worldbuilding so far. I’m looking forward to more games in this universe and in general!
gods, i just finished the game... doing all of the routes AND OH MY FUCKING GOD, I LOVED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM... four of these lovely mythic creatures hold a special place in my heart like i've been smiling throughout the whole time!!! MY CHEEKS ARE SORE FROM DOING SO. THIS IS SUCH A GOOD GAME... i love how unique each characters are and how there's diff experiences u get with 'em when going for the romantic choice LIKE AAAA I CAN'T EVEN SAY WHO MY FAVORITE IS BC I JUST CAN'T... I LOVE THEM ALL WAYYYY TOO MUCH ARGHHHH.. bb is just amazing, key is the sweetest ahhhh!! watcher is very much so adorable, HE'S SUCH A BABY BOYY AAAA AND X.... FREAKING X.. HE'S SO FLIRTY, I WAS ACTUALLY SO FLATTERED AND BLUSHING SO MUCH LIEEEKKK.... 10/10 is an understatement for a game this amazing, I WILL NOT BE MOVING ON QUITE SOONER. THANK U SO MUCH FOR THIS <333
Apologies for the late reply! That would be BestestBB's route. Though it's up to you if you don't want to play it, I will say that we made sure that and it's consequences for the offender were appropriately addressed. Feel free to ask for more details if you're still concerned!
A wonderful game, truly. I had such a great time playing it! I quickly realized that I wanted to do every route because every character are all so interesting, and we learn just enough about them in the beginning to want to know more. The choices are so well thought, and I had fun learning progressively more about all the mythic and their struggles. A lot of love and work was definitely put in this game, so thank you so much. :D
[TLDR: OffKey best girl, Thief and Furry are the coolest]
I absolutely loved playing this game! I played through the recommended sequence and even though I loved all of them, my favourite is definitely OffKey! Her real name is as beautiful as her design. The moment I saw her I knew that she was going to become my favourite, to her personality, voice and her style (Which is the cutest).
But even though I love OffKey the most, I think I relate to Watcher the most. In the way that I feel a bit plastic in my own culture, I don't think it helped that I hide away from it most of the time because of how little I know. But then again I think I'm a bit useless when it comes to character analysis/understanding.
I can also relate to BB. But I think its better not to expand on that one :D
I can see how X's route would be last that was getting me real nervous that I had to leave and calm myself down so I could keep on going! His was my favourite in terms of playing, made me feel a lot of emotion... mostly embarrassment. He sure is a charmer!
BUT my favourites outside of our love interests is Thief and Furry, even though I know he hates humans. I could see where he was coming from in Alina's route but I could also see where she was coming from. Thief is just straight up cool, I was excited to see him every time they were in chat. I also love both their voices, I would go back and listen to their little bios?
I also thought that it was cool how everyone's things changed in the routes.
With my people pleasing curse, i can normally maneuver my way to the route im going for with ease. WHY AM I FUCKING IT UP SO BADLY HERE?
Don't tell me. I'll figure it out. At first I thought it might be pfp based, but that must have just been a lucky coincidence. The first day's options feel limited, and gods kill me before i choose any of the even more embarrassing options. dammit.
Oh my god same, I had to retry so many times to finish Watcher's romantic route. I play dating sims how I would genuinely react and usually hit a snag at one character (in this case Watcher) because it's not what the character needs. My Grod, does that hurt lmao.
Just wanted to let you all know how much I enjoyed this game! I love the characters (X has my heart, but all the LIs are A++ and so lovable), and the voice actors who brought them to life all did a great job! Also... the fact that every route has at least one appearance from an adorable animal is unfair (read: I liked that a lot). Shoutout to the prettiest bird and all-around menace to society, Chai. And also, really enjoyed the ace rep and the possibility for the player character to say they're ace, as well!
Tbh, it'd be easier for me if I just listed the things I *didn't* like instead: ..........
Just popping in to say that I enjoyed Mythic Meetup immensely! I love the family/friendship dynamic between the mods and the fact that you get to know the rest of the mythics on the server throughout the routes. Thank you to the team for creating this! Now, onto Nature's Lament :D
Wrote this as a review, but decided to put it here too:
I have 11 hours of playtime on this game and holy hell I LOVE IT!! It definitely reminds me of Blooming Panic, I love the video calls and the voice actors were all really good!! As an aspiring voice actor, it was so satisfying to hear such great VAs. Also love the touch of the extra VAs for the other characters!
I loved Xs character because I usually love flirty characters, but man I did not expect to like OffKey as much as I thought.
Btw, if you ever are in need for a female extra voice actresses (Im not 18 yet tho just for you to know), I would be more than happy to maybe maybe help out. Only if that's ok!! (And maybe concept art or writing if you ever need help for that too ;))
Anyways, thank you so much for making this fantastic game, it really made me relate to all the characters. I had a very bad experience when I was younger and that event caused people to sexualize me, so I understand somewhat the troubles BB went through. I always push through even if I need a break, and even if it hurts me, like X and watcher. And I try to help people as much as I can even if I can't do the most that others might be able to, like watcher and OffKey.
Thank you again, love all of you that worked on this wonderful game and I can't wait to see more <33
heyo! Really enjoying the game so far. Currently on BB's route and I think I've encountered a bug.
I'm in day 6 of the story where BB isn't going to the con because of a fan ambush. X dm'd me basically telling me about the situation and after the end of that chat the game isn't progressing at all. I can navigate the UI but nothing else is happening. I assume the game is meant to fade out and continue?
Hoping this gets fixed soon because I'm really liking the game so far!
Heya, glad to hear you've enjoyed the game and that the characters resonated with you! Don't blame ya for becoming a simp for BB and X - they've both got their own charm. ;)
There are definitely more great chat sim games out there that were submitted to Otome Jam this year. Blooming Panic is another awesome one (and one of the inspirations for this game!), if you haven't checked it out yet. You've definitely got options. :D
Going into this, I didn't realize that your initial actions effect which route you end up on (as opposed to meeting everyone and then formally selecting your route). I dove right into the game, but certainly was not upset with the outcome. I wound up on watcher route and 100% was on board with this.
He's so adorable, and I wanted romance, so I was flirty early on. I was grinning like an idiot during the cute things he kept saying, especially when he would get embarrassed over the fact that his feelings were showing. I nearly squealed when he let the pet name, "Habibi," slip out. Apparently, I am totally into shy blushy guys. Normally I go for the cocky character or strong and silent one, but I suppose there is overlap here since those character types often get flustered and blushy once real feelings are involved.
Possible spoilers below ---------
It was cool to see some Arabic and Middle Eastern representation since that's one you don't see very often. I also thought the discussion of being an outsider to part of your own culture was handled well. It's a topic I have some personal experience with (colonialism sucks) and I really wish I had been able to give Wolf a piece of my mind or at least tell him to back off. I was also mad at X for expecting everyone to have the same abilities to confront things head-on. Neither of them was being very sensitive about something that they have never really had to deal with and I was V angry. Trauma responses won't magically disappear just because you really want to get better. It's also not easy to handle getting involved with a culture you were cut off from while raised in a different one. Nor is it reasonable to expect someone to abandon the culture they were raised in once they begin reconnecting with the other. It's always a very complex and personal matter.
I like that the game lets you help give input on the friend drama as an interested party and outsider to the politics. So many were being too harsh on my boy and it made me genuinely angry. I'm glad that the relationship development allows you to help him grow as a person and learn to stand up for himself more. I was upset when it looked like he would be disappearing for a while and was very relieved that he decided that he would be staying in contact with me regardless of what happened with the main group. The ending scene where it is revealed you are actually going with him as moral support to meet his mom's side of the family was very heartwarming and gave the warm fuzzies.
I was really happy and surprised by this game and as you can clearly see, I had a lot of feelings. Thank you so much for your hard work creating this gem of a game and your realistic handling of complex cultural matters.
Aw, thanks for playing and leaving such a sweet review! We are really glad you enjoyed the game. watcher's route is close to my (Smoke) heart as a writer as well, so I'm very happy to see he's resonated with you. ^.^
this game was fun! i enjoyed the characters. i feel like the video call sections of the game kinda let the rest down, the programming was a little janky there (maybe a first time programmer on that section?) but the audio did sound really good, so kudos to the editor there. offkey best girl.
Hm, this was likely caused by the number of wait pauses we set throughout the game. Try going back to your last save point on the route before then and playing up to that point. Let us know if there's still an issue!
hi!! i absolutely love the concept for this game :D! though i wanted to ask if you had any videos/tutorials you could link me for how to do the discord like chatroom you did, and the "is typing" popup? because the only tutorial i could really find on it was a phone text message popup </3 im trying to make a chat based VN like this game formatted as if its on a computer, like blooming panic, error143, etc but im super lost, i tried the renpy reddit as well but no luck. any advice is super appreciated
Hey, glad you enjoyed the concept! Unfortunately, there weren't any videos/tutorials we used. The Blooming Panic code is open source, so you could probably find it in there. The lemmasoft forums and renpy discord are also good starting points. Best of luck in your search!
Absolutely amazing!! Each of the routes had their own charm to them, and you can tell the love and passion that went into the creation of this. Phenomenal job you guys. (I also loved that you guys didn't shy away from discussing acephobia. As an asexual myself, it means a lot to see healthy representation / discussions about some of the expectations and ideals asexuals, and even aromantics, have to go through.)
Also, I do want to mention a minor bug I found! After the recent update, when doing BB's romantic end, I noticed the game kept jumping back to the final call with them after the cg scene! I'm unsure if it's just a fluke on my end or not, but I wanted to mention it just in case :D
Haven't finished the game yet but omggggg BB IS BEST GIRL, ALL HAIL ACE QUEEN 😍😍😍❤❤❤
I love her so much, I want to give her lots of hugs and chaste kisses 😭😭😭💘💘💘
Her route was really good, I really liked her initial tsundere phase and how she slowly started getting more comfortable around the MC 🥰❤😍
Also both her fox form and human form are so cuuuute ☺️💘😭
On another note, I think you portrayed the acephobia really well. I felt really sad for BB throughout the whole route. No matter how much you may think you know a person, it's really not okay to push your ideals on them. It made me really happy that one of the characters put that outloud and didn't excuse the ex's attitude.
crrryyyyy, got through all the routes tonight and I just love them all so much. Such a beautiful game, it's definitely worth it to take your time through everyone's routes before x. I just need to go back for friendship routes with a couple characters... Cursed completionist compulsion.
What struck me was that the side characters also have VCs?! So cool! Voices really round out my imagination so the whole server had voices in the grey matter movie reel while going through the story. They also had such strong personalities--made their reactions throughout very BAM.
No problem! In general, if you get a CG at the end, it's the romantic end and if you got a black screen with voiceover, then it's the friendship end. We'll definitely make this more clear in a future update!
so tried today and I think the error screen that pops up where you have to click roll back or ignore is messing with some of the conversations I got the black screen with no CG shown for Watcher again.
AH! I played the guys first, and went back for the ladies, and I have to say, Offkey has the best funny moments thus far . That last chat is perfect! especially that last couple lines from the mods. pft. Off to play the last route now
just finished playing the last route and ahh it's been such an amazing time!! all the characters won over my heart and romantic epilogues were so cute, it was amazing to see them all develop so much! i will definitely play many times again, thank you for making such an incredible game<3
Hi! We're in the process of writing walkthroughs, so hang tight! In the meantime, make sure that you've got the latest version of the game downloaded, as the previous versions have made it difficult to impossible to achieve his good end. Let us know if you've got any more questions or concerns!
i'm loving it! i've done the routes in the order recommended and i've been having a lot of fun. i have to say, the voice acting is really well done!! i'm no professional, so take what i say with a grain of salt— but voice acting sometimes takes me out of a visual novel. it was so well voice-acted, i didn't have this issue! so props to the VAs and whoever directed them!! <3
all the characters are very endearing. i adore the main cast, and seeing their friendship. (like, bb/x are clearly besties. even if they bicker. while key/watcher are close friends. in offkey's route, watcher vcs key when she was feeling off (get it. off. key. offkey?) and key gives you advice in watcher's route! friendship goals.) i usually have a favorite, but i love all of them too much...
i also love love the integration of their respective cultures. seen especially with watcher, as part of his plot has to do with his feeling of disconnect to his identity. it's something i relate to, so it tugged at my heartstrings. :') speaking of, bb's asexuality!! aah! an explicit ace character! that brought me so much joy. (and the option to say we're asexual? the cherry on top of an already amazing VN.)
i can go on and on, but i'll leave it here! i still have professor x's romance route to do! (with the recent update, hopefully, that'll be easier. OTL) TLDR; spectacular, wonderful, extraordinary
Heya, thanks for leaving such a sweet comment, it honestly made my day! watcher was a bit of a tricky character to write, so I'm glad to see that he's resonated with you. Have fun on X's route - you will not be disappointed! ;)
It was wonderful! I love the character sprites, the customized GUI, it kinda remind me of discord. The VA's voices in VC, or from their profile~ lmao I laughed in Blowpop's introduction pfft. I also love the CGs and those memes lmaooo. I love each characters and their interactions. Love the plot and I really do enjoyed it even if its mid length. But among them I love X more. I cant help but keep giggling when he flirt (≧▽≦). But sometimes, I had to scroll down to read the new messages popping out lmao
Heya! We just updated the OffKey walkthrough with how to unlock her chat photo. The last meme in the gallery doesn't seem to appear in a lock and was never unlocked for that reason. We'll probably add it in as a freebie in a later update - thanks for letting us know! ^.^
I love this game so far! Please implement like a daily autosave with a setting that people can opt in or out of, as if you get immersed in the game and forget to save and it crashes, you lose everything. :(
Hi! Really enjoyed the game so far, it's a very fun cast of characters!
I did have a couple of bug reports though and wasn't quite sure where to send them - I found that trying to use he/him pronouns made a big stack of errors pop up right away that weren't able to be bypassed.
I also wasn't sure if I completed watcher's route correctly? The ending seemed a little anticlimactic and different from the others since there was no ending CG, but it did let me start X's route after and I couldn't seem to get any other endings when I went back and tried different choices. Not sure if I'm just missing something?
Also last thing I promise! But while trying X's route, I ran into this bug and had to quit since there were no ignore or rollback options :(
Glad you're enjoying the game! And here is a fine place to place bug reports. :D
The watcher end you saw was the friendship end. We caught a bug that prevented you from reaching the romantic end, which should have been fixed in the 1.2 update. The X route label issue has also been fixed in the same update as well.
If you don't want to replay the entirety of watcher's route to get the romantic end, contact me on Twitter and I'll see if I can get a build sorted out for you. :)
I was playing last night with a friend and the first bug I encountered was that I was unable to use he/him pronouns. So I had to restart and use the they/them pronouns but after a while it had a similar error and the game crashed
