The script was... interesting.
There are a lot of creators out there who love to complain about storytelling cliches, even as they frequently use more storytelling cliches than everyone around them.
But there are many, many cliches when it comes to most itch.io visual novels.
Your self-aware parody was... unique.
Though, it does make me wonder if there are any itch.io creators out there who would sincerely care enough to write a story that doesn't revolve around wit and sarcasm and unoriginal references...
Maybe one day.
