I am very surprised this game has no new game +. Every game I have encountered that uses the snow blind engine so far has this feature.
I wanted to do a quick second play through with non-snarky replies I know the game is fairly short but a second play through powered up would have been much nicer.
The only odd thing I did notice after one of the ending was that the Bards portrait was half covered in dark smoke when I did start a new game. But in the other 2 endings his portrait remained completely normal.
