>On one hand it's a shame to see their potential squandered. On the other hand, we get to see anons warning each other about it like this
Biggest problem is that the game was genuinely good, but you can't go around recommending it without a big disclaimer, sadly, specially since it was never finished.
>I usually agree with you about disliking being hit to see animations but in Eroico it felt more natural and like a risk-reward tradeoff
True that it was very well implemented, which is why it doesn't bother me that much either, but I guess it's just a bad staple since plenty of games do it wrong. Usually female MC ones.
