“... Grimm & Tonic may just be quirky enough to escape a niche market. I can only hope that the effort doesn't sully with time.”

I have a few questions. what is the length of this game (word count or how many hours will this take to complete)? Is this a choice based VN?  How many endings are there? Is there romance? If so, how many characters are romanceable?

Hi there!
Thanks for the questions.
I've updated the description to address most of them. 
As it relates to romance able options. There may be a few down the line but the  writing isn't set in stone. 
This closer to a friendsim than a dating game.

We need more friendsims :D
