<Spoilers, maybe small ones for TSR as well>
So I played this after The Smoke Room, and at the end of Leo's route, Sam(?) mentions everybody but Murdoch, and 1) I really hope that doesn't mean he ends up hurting or betraying Sam in some way to make him resent him since Murdoch's my favorite so far (though it's really close and I like them all a LOT) and 2) now I'm aware and really scared of how heartbreaking stuff might get in that game as well ;-;
I've done every route except Jenna's so far but I think I'm going to wait for the final update for that, but I personally loved Leo's route and, having played his last, I think it's comparatively a very satisfying and happy ending; the voice that you see in other routes finally becomes more material, Flynn's alive and well, and even though you don't make many choices, you don't feel the narrator/Chase slipping from your grasp as a reader. As for Leo himself, he's clearly unbelievably stunted as a person because of Chase, and knowing that the growth you see at the end wouldn't be happening if you got a "happy" ending is really hard to ignore, not to mention Kudzu showed great character that wasn't conditional on his romantic interest.
Despite all that, I'm sad that it seems there'll never be closure for the whole Sydney situation. I'm still not quite sure if the sinister thing inside Chase only appeared after he drowned him, or if it's what caused him to do it in the first place, but the real kicker is that it's a burden TJ clearly struggles so hard to live with, and it's so crushing to see that he's never able to get it off of his chest because that same murderer is so ambiguous about his intentions. Like even as the reader it's really easy to why TJ would read Chase's actions as threats, then you see him kill Flynn upon finding out...
