A mind control game? Great! I can't wait to see it. Keep up the hard work, and you'll get there. As it is right now, It's very broken and not really worth playing. Typically these kind of things should reach some level of completeness before you publish them. For example, finish the first town, complete the first act of the story, or introduce the characters. It's your game, you decide where that boundary is. Then you release updates that expand the game. It's bad show to publish a clearly broken project. But since it looks like you just started the game, I assume you just wanted to get the word out about your new project. I would recommend putting together a prototype to at least show off the mind control part of the game, instead of building out the world. I like world building too, but it eats up a lot of development time. Scope creep is a real problem, so I recomend making a list of all the important things you want to put in the game, then order them from most to least important. And try to start with a section of the game that is self-contained. Undertale started out as just the ruins, maybe start with something similar, then expand from there... GOOD LUCK and have fun! :D

So, i very rarely review things but decided to do so here because I've been making games with RPGMaker for 15+ years now and I know how important it is to get feedback.

Sadly I cannot provide much feedback here because there really is almost nothing to see. I don't have MZ because i decided to skip it and head into unite once it releases but what i see ingame looks to be fully RTP for now. Some Images that are in the folder but couldn't be accessed ingame as far as I can tell are nice but without context nothing more. The writing in the intro is not very engaging to be honest. there is absolutely no incentive to relate to the hero and with just a black screen for quite a bit of time it is not very graphic. I am not a native English speaker but even I noticed some minor spelling mistakes in the script.

The game might become interesting at some point but at the moment there simply is no game to review.
