this was really, really, really good, and i'm super excited for when you release the rest!!
i really like the journal function that logs your choices! it's a nice touch. the presentation of the returned knock was REALLY GOOD! i wasn't expecting it, i loved it
i love seeing Holmes express concern for Ryuunosuke wah... and the acknowledgement of Ryuunosuke and Susato sharing the same grief and trying not to let the other hear them crying made me feel soooo :'( . the line "his death exists as a place and not a time. You can find it, a constant fixed point. You can never remember how far away you’ve gotten from it." at the start is also soooo good...
some typos/etc i noticed:
- on the screen where you choose what color fabric Iris should use, the final bit of dialogue shows Susato's name and icon instead of Iris'
- on the screen with Ryuunosuke's dream, his dialogue "No! That’s not what I meant—<</" shows those arrows & slash
- on the same screen "I believe in you, Naruhodou Ryunosuke.", Ryuu is missing his second U
