There are some passages where if you chose 'Ima' as a Male character, you instead get stuff like "she", "herself" and  whatnot. maybe it happens if you chose them as a NB too? or as a girl? Anyways it was a bug I noticed during the Alexander scene with the gang


love it though :))) glad i came across this IF when i did

(+1)

oh i am so sorry, did not notice that. Ima cannot be NB unfortunately, but i will have an extra look through that specific scene to see and fix it. thank you for letting me know and for enjoying it! makes me very happy :]

I'm not sure if it's possible, but is there a way to prevent the protagonist from sharing the same name as other characters? It scares the hell outta me when I realised the principal's name is also Oscar.

haha i did not think of that, will add it yes. i am sorry you had to experience the fright of having the same name as the headmaster. i will add it on the next update! thank you for letting me know.

Thank you very much!

Nice story! but i do have to ask if you're portuguese? cause enrique is the spanish version of henrique in pt and the english translation would be henry and not eric

(+2)

I am Portuguese, and i do have a lot of cousins named Enrique, it's a common name in Portugal.

(+1)

When you find it a day after an update 😔

Haha hope you enjoy it!

(+2)

Ohh this is amazinggg, I've been waiting for the update and I'm so happy to read more after the cliffhanger. I found some errors tho, in the relationship sidebar Immanuel /if, $Sibling in the hospital when you ask to be alone and $Child when your father talks with you. I hope to see more good job:D

Thank you! I am glad you liked it. I have fixed the sidebar bug, I cannot find the other two you have mentioned though, if you wouldn't mind, you can email me at: daopenghosted@gmail.com with screenshots or more detailed explanation. Thank you again!

great work! i really experienced the ever-constant noisiness of the family members

if you could, maybe add a place in settings to change your gender though

(+1)

Yes, family members tend to be very noisy haha! That is a great idea, I'll implement that in the next update. Thank you!

just playing the prologue, this hits hard, especially the scenes with Nessa and mc mom, i could feel this reasonate with my soul and i don't like it, as someone with  younger brothers, aways having to behave well and be patient as the older sister, even though I'm sad or mad sometimes, i can't act like it, aways having to hand over things I like to them, it's aways "Vitoria, tu és a mais velha". Anyway Loved it, ghost is my favorite character, probably the bit of comfort we need in life

(+1)

as an older sibling, i am glad the struggle resonates with you too. it is hard being the older sibling, we often have to put aside what we want or feel for the sake of the littles ones. i hold my role as older sibling in very high regards, and i am so proud of you for being a good sibling too. the ghost is very much a comfort character, i am glad you liked it. thank you for playing the game. hope to see you more!

(+1)

Oof did this story, so far, hit the feels hard. Just everything feeling very close to how things had felt in the past (for me). The feelings, the thoughts, the being there but not really, you nailed it on the head. And that cliffhanger, ahh! Bravo, I can't wait for more and see how we, as the PC, are going to get out of this mess.

i am very glad that it is relatable. this story is very close to me as it is heavily inspired in my life, and my own struggles. i hope you are in a better place now in your life, and thank you so much for playing this. i hope you enjoy further chapters too! (and i am sorry about the cliffhanger)

(+3)

I cry, how dare you make a beautiful story like this??? Anyway I can't wait for more update , this is amazing!! <3

thank you very much! i hope you continue to enjoy it <3

Okay an hour later and I've finished reading everything thus far I love the story already stinking love Charles with my soul

 {SPOILERS TO THE STORY}

 Personally was hit hard when the news of losing your ghost came up and felt horrible for the player character like give em some hugs and support (thanks to Archie for doing so) I was also hit hard by the player character suddenly thinking they where not real and they'll be forever alone that made me have a small reality check to remember i'm real, fine and safe which are my fault since I relate to most of what the player character has to endure so far but enough of that I can't wait for the next update to see what happens next thanks so much author for blessing us with this story

oh dayum took me ten minutes to write this so my last comment was two hours ago also sorry for the paragraph I don't write a lot of comments but when I do it's because of excitement and passion for the game :}

(+4)

thank you so much for this comment, it is very detailed and lovely, it almost made me cry haha. a lot of the things the mc struggles with are things i struggle with in my everyday life, especially now as my mental health has not been very good. writing this into a story for others to read made me understand myself a bit more and hopefully make others understand that they are not alone. even when things seem out of place or not real, it is often just for a moment, stories like this help to make sense of these complicated feelings.

you do not need to apologize for the comment, it made me very happy and i hope you enjoy future chapters as well. thank you so much for taking the time to read the story and to comment!
