That makes sense. Its a fictional universe anyway so it doesn't matter *too* muchSuriko wrote:The distance between the town and city are fictionalised.
During development, and without real regard for the actual geography of Sendai Castle, we decided to make three distinct game locations: Yamaku campus (at the top of the hill), the unnamed local town (at the foot of the hill, within walking distance), and "the city" which is not within walking distance. It's only really Sendai insofar as a few of the background photos are from there (the main city background photo is literally one step outside Sendai Station), and that distances to more remote locations are timed based off distance from Sendai (when we didn't fuck it up).
This is largely why we didn't namedrop Sendai or Sendai Castle within the VN - the distances don't match up quite right, so we genericised them into 'town' and 'the city'.
However, I unconsciously kept re-changing the foods in the Shanghai to more Japanese fare, like tempura soba for the "turkey sandwich" and mochi for the "cakes". (yes, lemon mochi is theoretically possible )
And I kept thinking perhaps Date Masamune, or a reincarnation of him, could appear at Yamaku as an alternative Hisao I mean, he DID only have one eye.... and his family was rich (Daimyo and all)... fanfiction?
