By the end of the game, is it your goal for the typical female gamer to fall in love with Peter Wright?

If so, what methods did you use to achieve this aim? (Would telling us ruin the romance?)

When I was on the birthday chat over at The Inventory, I got up from my chair and said something like:

"Hello. My name is Martin Ganteföhr (--- "Hello Martin" --- ), and I suck at writing love stories."

This was a very liberating moment for me, because, well, I suck at writing love stories, and it's tough to always have to hide that from the public...

It was actually part of my plan to avoid romance altogether in MOS, because I had failed so badly in my attempts to build a little romance subplot in Mystery of Youknowhichgame.

Strangely enough, Peter turned out to be a quite likeable guy. So maybe the secret of romantic undertones lies in attempting to avoid them. smile

I find the situation Peter finds himself in at the beginning of the game is in itself romantic. Partly it's the trauma in his background, but partly the way he reacts to his neighbor's troubles. His character seems to reveal an odd mixture of innocence and emotional pain.
