The answer to your log line from my playthrough would be, only partially xD cos I didn't manage to save everyone, haha. But then it does say that it's the good ending that I got, so maybe I didn't do too terribly x3 There were 5 casualties for me. I'm guessing I must be able to save more than that though if I pick some different choices. Also, the ending name made me smile :D

It was fun anyhow! I've never been great at saving a cast of characters in games where that's an objective x3 aside from my first playthrough of House of Ashes, where I somehow managed to get everyone to survive! But it's fine cos it's amusing getting to see how your choices impact stuff and who you end up accidentally screwing over :P

You've definitely captured the essence of what you said on the page this was inspired by, that's for sure :3

Thank you very much for the kind words!  Yes, some casualties are inevitable, but a couple characters can be saved depending on your choices ;)
