The synopsis alone had me actually gasping, my dudes. What a plot right out the gate!
The title screen's artstyle (with visible paintstrokes) is strangely compelling. She's so stressed, and I keep looking into her eyes.
There's a nice vector effect on the in-game BG, too. How did you do it? I'd genuinely like to know if you used photoshop or any specific site, because the quality is so crisp and pleasant to look at. :) You've also coded in a very nice screen() for receiving text messages. It's such a smooth transition!
HAHA and then I blocked the demon's number and got an abrupt ending. Okay, time to reload.
The demon, when they appeared, was not what I expected. They have a lot more clothes on than I imagined lol. :P I like them -- though of all the characters, Darren is by far my favorite. He tries hard, cares a lot for us in his own way, and sometimes gets mocked by other students due to their own insecurities. I knew right away in my heart, investing my time into his friendship would pay off. I couldn't help defending him every time I get the chance, and I genuinely did value my friendship to him. Even when he flaked on us, I 100% trusted that he'd come around and explain himself. And he did!
So that being said... I'm not terribly interested in pursuing the ending where we betray this good boy. The demon can have Valoria's soul if they want, but they can't have Darren lol.
Overall The Death Contract was enjoyable, and my main criticism is that it's very quiet. There were no music or sound effects as far as I can tell, and I would highly recommend that addition in future versions. :)
