Quick update 10/01/2020: Fixed error in the line 101 chp5, now if you choose to ignore Amber the game shouldn't crash.
Update 10/28/2020: Sophie's name will not appear in the scene before the party.
Now the game has a desktop icon.
Reworded the choice: 'Amber is wrong' and 'Appease the A+squad' to 'Side with A+squad' and 'Side with Amber'.

Side note: We are aware that the ending screens don't have a break, we plan to change it in a future update soon.

I really liked the game, it was pretty smooth and nicely made, especially for game which was made in just one month. the sprites were really nice too, i enjoyed how they depicted how the characters felt :D

just a quick question though, i've been playing the game for a bit and i've managed to get 2 endings, the good and bad one but i can't exactly figure how to get the third ending which i'm gonna suppose is the good one so might i know how to actually get it? I'm quite curious as to what it'll be to be honest
