Okay~! *cracks knuckles* time to start on this game as well! XD I know I said it before but I'll say it again, bravo for her being a dark elf PC! There needs to be more of those!
First off, honestly, I'm glad that you got the same artist for Loren to illustrate for this one as well. Everyone seems to love his work, including myself a lot (I think I said it once before to) and he's become a staple of the Aravorn series. I can't wait to get to the adult part of the game truth be told. Glad it will still be used for the yuri path but maybe have an option like on Loren that you can have it all through the game? Hmm, be unique if the guys could/would comment on it to and some blush (especially Thomas =d ) but wishful thinking.
Reading the posts I do hope that this does do well and possibly a small RPG element will be added as well as the other romanceables. I noticed someone mentioned it as well and you should really look into the Atelier series, that the type of RPG and gathering game people thing of when they think alchemist+anime (wiki with info here: http://atelierseries.wikia.com/wiki/The ... eries_Wiki
). My brother knows my tastes to well and was like 'Your going for Thomas aren't you?' and I laughed and replied 'Let me guess, you'd go for either Ruby or Vin' and he was like 'Hell ya!' He has a thing for the mature/strong/capable type. XD He even said that Manuel was cool looking. (ps. he ADORES Loren. XD When I play he's like 'Hey, there's my hot black haired chick. She reminds me of Miranda.' He LOVES
Miranda from Mass Effect.)
As it stands though I'll probably go for Daniel, love megane guys =d (shota comes first though) but as with other games, personality always comes first.
You know on another though, instead of an RPG'ish element why not add a monster fighting/collecting addition?

kinda sparked it in me. There's also a game (which is now sadly not being made) called Monster Rancher which is a casual type game which might be something you might want to look into for maybe ideas. I loved
the Pixie (http://monsterrancher.wikia.com/wiki/Pixie
) monster. XD There is a TON of different monster types, ranging from Dragon to Mermaid and more unique ones. Like I said you might want to give it a look see and all, just trying to help ya out is all. There's also a Harvest Moon'ish type game where you can catch monsters and they'll help you in battle and on the farm by the same creators of Harvest Moon called Rune Factory.
I also noticed that there will be bittersweet/sad endings you said but also happy ones. I despise
the bittersweet/sad ones. >.< Please
tell me that at least one of the 4 possible endings is 'happily ever after' cliche'ish with one of the paths with all the love interests?
I know this is probably A LOT to read but well, I hope I help and you do consider some. ._.
