I'm starting a let's play series for Broken Minds!

Awesome! Thanks so much. I'm enjoying it a lot. :)


Loved the demo. Your visual style is just amazing, and the way the environments give a sense of being grounded in a physical space is so uncommon for a visual novel. Really looking forward to playing the rest of the game.

Thanks! That was definitely one of the advantages of rendering so many backgrounds. Good to know it was worth it. :)
