Yes, it was very cute.  Short, but cute.  :)

Well, it's an Epilogue. I wasn't expecting it to be all that long.

Now that it's all released, I'm finally interested in watching a full walkthrough of the game. Would you say that the chapters got shorter as they went? I just want to be prepared in case Chapters 4, 5 and the Epilogue each take less than an hour to beat.

Chapter one is definitely the longest one at around 10 hours iirc. Chapter two is around six. Chapters three and four are around three to four hours I think. And chapter five I haven't gone through it again so I don't know how long it would take once you know what you're doing. Epilogue of course isn't very long.

I just now played the epilogue.  It was a pretty nice story, but...

I'm assuming you're only going down one path instead of all three?

Is anyone trying to get all the achievements in the game?  I got 37/53 myself.  I think i may go back and replay at least some parts to get more of them.

Sure.  :)

Would it be easier to list off the ones I have or is there a list of all the achievements out there already?

Eh, go ahead and list them. There are lists out in the internet, but there's also a lot of achievements.

I found a couple more while starting to replay Chapter 1.

Here's what I had so far:  (I used spoiler text since I kept in the descriptions too.)

Chapter 5 took about 2 and half hours for me to beat smoothly (AKA I know what I'm doing now! Yay!) and the Epilogue took around 20 minutes. I finally got that last achievement too! So the game (not counting the Epilogue here) takes 24-26 and a half hours, with the Epilogue making it 24-26 and fifty minutes. Not exactly the longest game in the world, but not something I'd say you can do in a single sitting, playing each episode back to back, either. Just letting you know, Numbers. :)

Anyway, Kyranthia. Hmmmm... Looks like you're missing...

Carrying over from this thread, I have things to say regarding Chapter 2-5, plus the Epilogue.

What made this game frustrating for me was that there was stuff in there that I actually got invested in. Chapter 3 was by far my favorite. But there were so many other things that I didn't like. For me, if the ending to Chapter 3 was TOG's KQ's Crowning Moment of Awesome, Alexander saying "I can't even" in Chapter 4 was its Dethroning Moment of Suck. In fact, Alexander in general in that chapter is the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I hated his voice, his mannerisms, and overall attitude. So that makes the number of interpretations of Alexander I like to...still none of them.

But my least favorite part of this game was, oddly, not the portrayal of Alexander, nor the portrayals of the other heroes. It was the villains. Read the spoiler text below for more details, as they go more in-depth, along with, obviously, spoilers.

So, that's my stream-of-consciousness "quickie" on the remaining chapters. I didn't go in depth this time, because I'll be honest, I haven't slept for the last 48 hours, and lack of sleep does wonders for one's disposition and coherency. See ya later, I'm going to bed.

Vee or Neese for you? ;)

Well, clearly, my favorite is the hidden third princess that Daventry wishes was in the game.

On a more serious note, probably Neese. She surprisingly was feisty and spunky without being annoying. Vee acted like she had a stick up her butt. It's telling that when you start the fourth chapter from scratch, it automatically defaults to Graham being married to Neese instead of Vee.

I'm genuinely surprised!  :o

I mean, I love Neese too, and she's my headcanon wife alongside a Compassion aligned Graham, but considering that she's got a similar goofy personality to Graham when he was younger, which you disliked, I figured that you'd go for Vee since she's more serious and mature. Not that I would have minded if you said Vee, I like her as well because she's snarky and punny (and puns are my favorite type of humor), just not as much as Neese.

"Is that a randomly placed raw steak in the middle of the woods?! If it's not nailed down, we grab it!" is the line that sealed the deal for me and I KNEW she was perfect.

I'd respond to the rest of your post, but I'm tired ATM. I'm glad we both have the same favorite chapter, though!
