Since over a 100 people have completed Neil’s survey (at the end of his route), I can release some statistics!
Which ending did people get on their first run?
56% Passionate Ending
44% Innocent Ending
A slight majority of players favour being fierce more over kind when it comes to Neil’s route! Probably because it’s a lot better to bite back when Neil is acting immature. I’m glad that there’s not a huge divide, as that would indicate I wasn’t giving really good options for the player to make. Both choices should have their own merit, after all.
What did players like about Neil’s route?
By far, with 87%, people liked it when Neil would be caught off guard and show his awkward self. There are plenty moments in Neil’s story where he’s simply at the mercy of Joselina or is too embarrassed to act composed. It’s fun to knock Neil down a peg or two when he’s always so full of himself.
Runner up with 83% are the kissing scenes! People seemed to really enjoy those, which I’m happy for. I made sure to not write the story in such a way that the kissing would happen at the end, no – kissing and physical intimacy would happen throughout the story. Things need to be spicy!
Most memorable chapter?
42% voted chapter 16 as most memorable. This chapter is where Neil kisses Joselina on top of her counter in her boutique, which includes the first kissing CG. 37% voted chapter 12, the masquerade ball, which is where the first kiss happens! I’m surprised chapter 16 won over chapter 12 since the masquerade has a very fairy tale like feeling, but hot make out scenes win here!
No surprise here, CG 4, the kissing CG, is the most popular. Close behind is CG 6, Neil and Joselina’s selfie. In third place is Neil’s first CG, where he hides behind a laptop. What to take from this is that people love kissing CGs, as well as CGs where Neil looks ridiculous.
Do you like Neil’s purple hair?
80% liked his black hair more
9% no opinion
9% liked his purple hair more
As expected, people are in love with his new hairstyle! I always try to give characters different sprites in their routes.
Do players want to read 18+ sex scenes?
87% yes (adults)
7% yes (minor)
5% no opinion
This ties in what players wanted to see more of; steamy romantic scenes. Basically, 95% of players want steamy romantic sex scenes with their favourite guy. And why the hell shouldn’t there be sex? The characters are adults and there’s nothing wrong with getting frisky. Tailor Tales will eventually have premium content that unlocks the 18+ stuff.
And lastly, Caine is still the runner up for next bachelor to be released in Tailor Tales.
Thanks for playing Neil’s route everyone!
