Starting Demo Now:
Okay, I like the character creation bit. But, with the skills and how they advance through more usage, I think you should take "Attack" out of the skill list, seeing as it increases the amount of times it has been used by simply pressing Attack and by going to the skills, there's no reason that you'd need to have the same thing in two places.
You should rework the assassination part. What I'd recommend is that you still talk to Asrii, but that dream should be only for character creation and her advice. The rest of the tutorial should take place in the real world, that way you can have a more immersive tutorial, hopefully build the Father out to be a character to be cared for through this tutorial, and then finish it with the assassination. Since the majority (probably) of the game will be in this world, I just think it'd be better to teach the player the general rules while in this world.
That's all my opinion of course.
I think you should be able to talk to your sister after taking the Book of Shadows. Mom's hairpin is probably overpowered
. Also, the sister seems to disappear if you go to sleep in the house. When I talked to man inside a church, he disappeared. I wont mention the Dog glitch, since D&P already did in his video. Oh, and in his video there are a ton of people, when I played there wasn't anyone there. I'm not sure if this is caused by race, or if that is also caused by the sleeping I did.
I slept once more to see what else happens, instead of the sister sitting next to where the book was (inside your house) she turns into the dad. I can't talk to him. I checked the clock and it said "0:7" I'm not sure what that means. Then, after returning upstairs, the mother and the sister are back in their beds sleeping. When I wake up, the sister is playing the piano and the dad is still just sitting there. I've yet to find my mom so I can say goodbye.
I slept once more, since sleeping seems to be the cause of everything. Finally, the dad is gone, the sister is still playing the piano but I've yet to find the mother. I slept once more, the dad came back, but this time, all of the shops have opened up. I guess there is a hidden time system that I wasn't aware of. Apparently the clock changes too xD. Well, the places haven't exactly opened up, their doors have disappeared, but I can't go inside. The houses that opened were the Pub, a place with a Coin sign, and the two houses on the right & left of the Pub. I can't go inside any of them.
So, I decided to move on and grind to level 2. I hit level two, but nothing really happened, so I guess I'm finished with the demo. All I can say is that you have some great ideas in this game, but you need to fix/work on them so that they function correctly. The time system is good, but you need to also have day & night for it to work. I haven't found a use for the Axe, Hammer etc. but I'm sure there's something cool in store for them. I just couldn't find anywhere to use them in this demo. The skill progression is an awesome idea, but I don't want to grind octopuses that are called forth by a farmer in military gear in order to progress the skills. Hopefully if I ever find my mother I can get off the island and kill some real game.
I rewatched D&P's playthrough of the demo so that nothing was repeated. On a side note, I chose to be an elf, but my parents seemed to still be humans. Well, that's pretty much everything I got from the demo. I hope this helps you in any way. Demo Demolished
EDIT: OH, and I didn't see any way to Shut Down the game other than clicking the red X on the game window. This will surely become a problem for people playing in Full screen, since they wont see an X, they'll have to Alt-Tab and delete it or Alt-F4.
