Bug Fixes PLUS New content added to the soundtrack DLC

Hello, Folks

We fixed some glitches that were preventing some players to understand one of the possible endings. Somewhere along the road, a great deal of dialogue went missing in 2 of the 5 endings. ALL 5 ENDINGS are working properly now.

Also, we just added the in game loops to the soundtrack DLC available on the Dark Arts Edition. They can be really good to listen while reading comic books.

Enjoy

Interesting story with interesting twists, turns and reveals.

Many different choices which leads to many different out comes.

Really likeable.

Only sad point of the game is that it is too short and and the story supporting pictures need a bit of more work to make it even more interesting and realistic.

Some would play it more than one time for sure.

Choices matter much more than Mass Effect.
11/10 would make a better choice next time.

The art is great, the characters and background images are beautifully done. Unfortunately this game really short, even with a couple endings, and the save system is not as handy as common visual novel games that allow you to save on certain points such as when you need to make a choice.

Overall I enjoyed my time in-game. I recommend this game if you interested, but try to wait for a discount. Me myself get this game for free on giveaway. You might want to wait for that to happen again.

Goethe's Faust reconceived and redesigned as a visual novel. The story is actually quite good and the replayability is high, due to a number of meaningful choices that affect the game flow and ending. For some reason, the story is much more immersive than most visual novels out there.
Visually, the game is ok and the graphics are fine, but the story and the diea itself is where it shines.
