Listen, I know you've seen reviews like this a whole bunch of times before, but this game is beautiful, story-wise and graphics-wise. I love how you can feel like the words you say actually influence the story and change relationships. However, on the subject of dialogue, it would be great if you (devs) could let the speech bubbles for Alex stay until the person speaking is finished. Sometimes you don't get the full gist of what others are saying if they don't finish, but you can't say something to change what's happening if you listen to the whole sentence, and that kinda gets me ticked. I guess that's what the subtitles are for, but it's just a thought.
Also, I am on 5 am after the call-and-response signal to the bomb shelter (if you've played, you'll know what I'm talking about), in the fields, I think. As it was saving, the game crashed. I didn't think much of it, it had happened several times before as I went to another area, but when I got back on, the screen showed 5 am in its squiggly script, the screen panned down and the screen shrank to its "theatrical" setting that happens when you go to the edge of an area like normal, and...
The screen froze, and the game crashed-- again. I've tried it several times since then, with the same result. I can't continue the game until I find a loophole to this glitch or until it's patched, and I'm majorly PO'ed, but not enough to lose a star.
Basically, if you've been skipping to the good points to find the main stuff, here it is:1) the dialogue is good, but please, if you could, make Alex's speech bubbles linger for a while longer, 2) MAIN SUBJECT: PLEASE FIX THE 5AM GLITCH!! Not angry (well, yeah, I am), just also frustrated that I can't continue the game until it's fixed. I know you didn't mean to have that glitch (no dev does), and I know you've fixed others in the past, but this one has popped up, and it's a major problem. Devs, please listen on this one. I love the game, its story, the little bits of romance and conflict (and possession), but I really don't like the 5 am glitch.
I updated my IPad mini 2 to the new IOS 10.something, and the 5 am glitch was fixed. The dialogue issue is still pretty annoying, but I'll deal with it. I desperately hope the recent lack of updates means that they're making another game that's as good as this. Thanks for listening.
