    Heileen
    Ugh!
    I'm so nervous...

    *Monologue*
    Why does my uncle Otto insist he needs me on this trip?
    He's a prominent English merchant, born in Prussia.
    He's been a traveller throughout his entire life.

    Heileen
    It's normal for him to travel, but why does he need me to go?
    And why are we travelling all the way to America?
    *It's imperative that you accompany me to the New World. You must open yourself up to new experiences, Heileen.*
    But what if I'm not interested? I'm fine here in Liverpool!
    I've been exposed to new things enough already!
    I'm sure I'll get ill by some new disease. I've heard of all the stories.

    [​IMG]
    Marie
    You're so scared! You don't honestly believe everything you hear, do you...?

    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    Marie has been my best friend since we were young. I used to play with her as a child, but we lost touch when I lost my parents and had to go live with my uncle Otto.
    She's always made me feel special. She's really more of a sister to me than just a friend.

    Heileen
    Marie! How long has it been since we've seen each other? You've changed so much...
    But what are you doing here? Are you going with us on the trip?

    Marie
    Yeah...
    It was your uncle's idea. He thought you'd feel safer if I tagged along.

    Heileen
    ...

    Marie
    So...
    So... Do you feel safer now?

    Choose your destiny, codex!

    Stupid wine, stupid developers breaking things, stupid cascading effects that render me unable to play Persona 4 *grumble*

    Holy crap on a cracker, that character art!

    We're not a child anymore! Suck it up, Marie!

    It doesn't look like she was expecting that.

    Marie
    Well, of course...
    I didn't mean...
    Never mind. Let's go.

    Heileen
    All right... It seems that's the only option left to us.


    Music: Orinoco Flow

    *Monologue*
    ...the frantic preparations for departure...
    ...a journey to new lands, into the unknown...
    New experiences... Maybe my uncle was right.
    Even though living secluded in my own little world by routine brings me peace of mind, I would never live life to its fullest.

    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    He's handsome...
    This trip is already getting interesting!

    John
    Pleased to meet you, my name's John!
    See you on the ship...

    *Monologue*
    He leaves to ready the ship.
    What a body...

    :codexisfor:Pfft! And we're worried about the "Male Gaze"!

    [​IMG]
    Marie
    Your uncle would never allow you to marry a common sailor like him!

    [​IMG]
    Marie
    Sorry for putting an end to your fantasies.

    [​IMG]
    Option 3 seems rather cruel... in before the codex votes for it!

    A Visual Novel, Good Sir. :obviously:

    The lovely maiden, Heileen is our protagonist and it seems we are to be romancing the strangely dreamy sailor, John (and probably some other fellows).
    And for some reason or another, I am completely unfazed at the prospect.

    I have never played this and have almost no idea what to expect.
    So come, join the others and take me on a journey!

    Well, at least this is less crazy than doing a LR of Fate/Stay Night.

    Looks like they used the same artist as for Bionic Heart.

    And option 3 (Marie is actually romancable as well :troll:) .

    I just got back from a friend's birthday party.
    I forgot to buy her a present, so i just gifted her the "Winter Wolves" bundle - best $1 I ever spent; crises averted
    :troll:

    I just need to freshen up, I'll prepare the next update in a little bit.

    Marie
    Hey... What's happened to you?
    I never would've thought you'd think yourself so venerable just because you're the niece of a merchant.

    [​IMG]
    Jack
    ...

    Heileen
    Who is that man?

    Marie
    I think he's the man your uncle wants you to marry.

    [​IMG]
    Heileen
    What!?

    Marie
    C'mon, I was joking!
    He's one of those indentured servants...
    You know how it works, right?

    [​IMG]
    :hmmm: I don't see the harm in asking about it.

    Marie
    What a surprise since. I thought you'd know since you're Otto's niece.
    These are people who want to enter the New World, but can't pay for the trip themselves.
    They're usually the scum of society...
    To get to the New World, they enter a contract with a merchant or a captain of a ship that transports them.
    Once thye arrive, their contract is auctioned off.
    They're then trated like slaves by their *employers* until the deadline.

    Heileen
    So... They're slaves from here?

    Marie
    Well, to some extent, yes. The contracts typically last several years.
    At the end of the contract, the employer must give them a sum of money or land to cultivate so they can make a living on their own.

    Heileen
    Well... I never would've thought I would meet someone like that.
    They're a bit scary...

    Marie
    Indeed. Not exactly the kind of person I'd like to be alone at night with!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Otto
    Why? Well first, because you've been living with me since you were ten-years-old and you've never ONCE gone with me anywhere.
    And second: Because it's about time that you move your lazy butt outside of Liverpool!

    Marie
    <laughing> Your uncle is right!

    Otto
    Now excuse me, I'm keeping captain Adam waiting.

    Heileen
    But... Uncle, what about my luggage?

    Otto
    What? It's all still there on the pier, Heileen.

    Heileen
    Yes, I know, but they're heavy...

    [​IMG]
    Otto
    I don't care! Next time don't bring useless baggage with you!

    [​IMG]
    Marie
    Wow... I don't recall your uncle being like that.
    What a gentleman.

    Heileen
    Yes...

    [​IMG]
    :hmmm:
    Apparently we just got a quest, and this is the Quest screen.
    We get 2 points for every quest we find, and 3 for each one we solve. This somehow translates into extra events and stuff.
    This game's grammar... so bad...

    *Monologue*
    Ugh! Otto... That man will face my retribution! Yes, that's it... I'll shame him in front of an entire crowd! He deserves it!

    :codexisfor:
    Good... Let the butthurt flow through you...

    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    She waves to us.

    Lora
    Hello~ darlings!

    *Monologue*
    Lora. My uncle's mistress...
    He's never married, and often used to pay visits to brothels.
    But since he met her a few years ago, he seems to have been "loyal" to her...
    I can't stand her, but to be fair she's always very kind to me, regardless of the fact that I'm always trying to avoid her.

    Marie
    <whispering> ...Who is she, Heileen?

    [​IMG]
    Marie
    <laughing> Yes, half-naked indeed! But do you know her?

    Heileen
    Well, she is sort of an... "entertainer" that my uncle frequently...

    Marie
    Oh! Otto?
    I didn't think he would mingle with that kind of people

    Lora
    It's a pleasure to see you again, Heileen! You get more beautiful every day!
    Are you ready to board the Cat's Dream?

    Heileen
    Uh, is that what the ship is called? That's a funny name...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    The humiliation, the floundering with my words, being flustered out of my mind...
    This is why I don't like being with her!

    :rpgcodex:
    You're pretty whiny, you know...

    Lora
    Oh, look at you! What a nice dress! And your cute face...
    You have such marvellous azure eyes!

    *Monologue*
    A pity it's not a man giving me all those compliments...!

    Lora
    I wonder how many men will be after you! You do have a boyfriend, right?

    *Monologue*
    I can see John getting closer from behind her... My heart's starting to pound wildly...

    Ah, who knows! Maybe you'll find someone during this trip! Maybe the love of a lifetime...

    :hmmm:
    Thank you, I did read the blurb.

    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    I wonder if he heard anything!

    [​IMG]
    John
    Good day!

    [​IMG]
    Lora
    Good day to you, my good-looking sir!

    *Monologue*
    What?! Ugh, how shameless! Using every chance she gets...
    John is struggling (and failing) to look away... I'm being completely ignored...
    Sigh...

    Lora
    I have to go put my luggage in my cabin. Bye, darlings!

    [​IMG]
    Heileen
    Yes... I saw.

    Marie
    So the less a woman wears, the more interesting they are, is it?

    Heileen
    ...

    Marie
    Well, she is quite the a woman.
    Voluptuous, sociable, full of life...
    You have to give it to her, I guess.
    ...

    Heileen
    Are you done?

    Marie
    Uh... Yes, I understand. I should shut up.

    Heileen
    Thank you! Now forgive me, I need to unpack my stuff too. See you later.

    [​IMG]
    *Monologue*
    In the distance, John is talking with a funny-looking man who appears to be a cook.

    [​IMG]
    Will our protagonist eavesdrop, or is their conversation likely too vulgar for our delicate ears?



    I had a quick look ahead, it seems we've got a lot of decisions to make in a rather short space of time. Unfortunately I do not know which of them will affect any variables, so we'll likely just have to persevere with short updates for a little bit.

    And dear Winter Wolves, if you're reading this and you've not yet done so, PLEASE hire someone who is good with English.
    The amount of grammatical errors here is downright dreadful.

    I think like with Bionic Heart, Celso himself wrote all of it. He's Italian. Sequels should be better.

    Is it wrong that the only character I can't stand so far is our heroine ? Couldn't we play Lora the Strumpet instead ??


    Anyway, let's eavesdrop.
