I appreciated the lengthy demo. I normally avoid BL stuff because they so often transcribe tropey gender roles in the worst, most over the top ways...and it just makes me angry lol.

With good writing, I don't care what gender the MC is as long as I can imagine the characters living and breathing. I had enough confidence to buy the full game after playing the demo.
I love this game so much! The dynamic between Carrault and Damien is just the best. If you ever make a sequal, I'll buy it so fast it makes your head spin. You guys are awesome!
Have no playtime on steam as i played the 18+ version. Finished all routes and endings and i have to say i loved it. I get the feeling that the game was made by fans of BL and yaoi as it manages to avoid all the things i (and my friends i have recommended this game to) hate about VNs and replace them with exactly the kind of things we want. The biggest of these being a likable main character. While i understand the need to make your MC as bland as possible to draw in a larger player base i find it annoying and insufferable to play like that. So to have an MC whith not only his own personality but to be likable and relatable is a rare thing and very welcome. Im very excited for CoB and i really hope they keep making games this way.

Seere speaking to Kymil: My friend, if you really think that would stop Carrault from taking a swipe at you, I'm afraid you're mistaken.
