Hyblitz (of LittleKnightGames) is a friend of mine from the PGMMV community, I first played this back during the 2019-2020 PGMMV Game Dev Challenge. I understand this has gone through some rework/revisions and I wanted to give this game some attention and feedback given all the changes.
Not sure if anyone has told you this recently, but your game breaks right after the introduction. The protagonist is stuck running in place after the button tutorial prompts and I can't proceed. I see other comments from a couple months ago not pointing this out, so I assume whatever broke was recent.
I won't rate your game until it's fixed and I can go through what you have, but I'll share my impressions so far (and will edit this comment later on as the things are fixed):
-Option menu didn't work...? (I understand this is still a WIP, but you should have a basic options screen in there. I'm talking even just a volume slider for BGM, SFX, and Voice channel if applicable). It was weird to have the option selectable on the title screen but then get booted back to the menu.
-I assume you're using Joe's action text plugin, you should have SFX play when a character is speaking and the message is writing out. Something a bit understated but noticeable.
-This is a little extra effort, but you should be able to press "A" again during a message to skip to the next one. Think of people who want to speed run your game, or are replaying it and have already seen all the dialogue.
-Your tutorial/button prompts/etc. look great! So does the new character design. I did kinda prefer the cuter/kirby looking version from before but the pixel art on the new version is amazing.
