We're planning to release a "remastered" version later on, which will retouch the things we weren't able to fully refine in the one-month time frame. So feel free to leave suggestions after you've tried the game!

And now...to finally get some sleep... (collapses into bed)

  1. Ahhhhhh I'm waiting for the Remaster before playing this, though even if I downloaded the current one I wouldn't have time to play it right now. It's getting mostly positive reviews from what I can tell, so congrats!

  2. ahaha, it's so cute, so different what I expected. To be honest, in real life I'd run away from Sona too, hahaha. Thank you for your hard work, guys.

  3. Hi, CheeryMoya! Yes, that's probably best (even though it might be a while before the remastered version is done, we really want to improve the CGs and such ^^;). Congrats on finishing NaNoRenO, by the way! I hope you have some time to relax now.

    And thanks so much, anon! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. (haha, in real life, I'd probably be scared of her too, lol!)

  4. This game is so beautiful... I haven't been able to complete it 100% though... I don't know what's wrong with my actions, but I'm always at 80%.
    I... hardly ever cry, but with this game, I did. Sona reminded me of how I was some years ago...
    Thanks for creating it. It's wonderful.
    And... if I can help you with your creations, just ask!

    1. Thanks, Dye! I'm so touched to hear that. :'D Hmm, if you are at 80%, you must be missing one of the endings (and the bonus chapter that unlocks when you complete all 3 endings). Have you tried choosing all "mean" choices or all "nice" choices? If you need a more specific walkthrough, let me know.

      And thanks for offering to help! :) What do you usually work on?

    2. I managed to get Coda 1 (Con Amore) and Coda 2 (A tempo). I tried changing my choices, but it made no difference... And I'm curious about that 20% xD.

      Well, I have no experience creating visual novels yet, but I know some basic stuff about RenPy and Novelty. I've got experience with RPG games (I use RPG Maker VX Ace for my creations), and I'm a good writer - even though I'm not a native speaker of english. I do voice acting too, just in case you find that useful.

    3. Ah, Veebie did a walkthrough here! You want the "???" Ending.

      And making RPGs sounds really cool - I'll ask you if we ever decide to do that in the future! ;D

  5. This game looks amazing! But I seem to be having some trouble with downloading it, I keep clicking on the link but it just won't open up for me. It just keeps loading nseystudio.com and the site doesn't even come up. I went to the thread too and it did the same thing.

    What am I doing wrong? Someone please help me.
    Oh, and I have Windows.

    1. Thanks for your interest, Kassidy! Hmm, did you try doing Right Click -> Save As for the link? If it still doesn't work, email me at arowana.vx@gmail.com and I'll make a new link for you. :)

    2. Thank you.
      I just sent you an email. :D

  6. Oh my GOSH. This is such a good game. I've never been so deeply affected by such a good story, before. And it's FREE?! Come on, it can't be FREE, it's too good T_T Gee. I beat it @ 70%, though. I'm gonna play it OVER AND OVER until I get it right. Thank you so much for the experience. ^_^

  7. ANDROID!!! YES!! My computer has problems running the newer Ren'py games, so I hope I can download this for my android tablet and play there XD

    I didn't know Ren'py can port for Android now, though. Is that the new build? And does it automatically port like it did with Mac/Linux? Or is there a separate engine to port it for Android?

    1. Yes, you can port Renpy games to Android using the RAPT program!
      http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/android.html

      RAPT is downloaded separately from the regular Renpy. It currently supports up to Renpy 6.14.1, I believe. Hope that helps!

    1. We would love to make an iOS version in the future, but are still searching for a good way to port it. It's definitely on our wish-list, though!

  9. I don't know if it's just me having this issue, but I tried running the mac version of the game on my snow leopard macbook, and I can't get past the initial "english/deutsch" menu screen, it just freezes for a few seconds before the app crashes... ^^" I tried downloading the game again, but to no avail. I have the error message log if this can be of some help... Is there anything I could try to make it work? I really want to play this awesome sounding game... T^T

    1. Thanks for reporting this, and so sorry for the trouble! If you can send me your error log, that would be awesome (my email is arowana.vx@gmail.com).

      In the meantime, here is an alternate version without the language selection screen. Let me know if it works or doesn't work for you!

  10. I tried running other Ren'py games after posting my previous comment and ran into the same issue, so I figured the problem probably didn't come from your game after all. I tried re-installing the latest version of Ren'py and everything works perfectly fine now...
    Thank you for the quick response, and sorry for the trouble! ^^

  11. I've just finished this game (and completed it 100%). It's superb ! especially the great story. It made me really cry and sometimes, laugh so hard.
    Thank you for making this wonderful game!
    I wanna know what Hao said in chinese. There's any translation?

    1. Thanks for playing! Yes, if you have 100% completion, the translation option should be unlocked. Go to Settings and pick English for the Translation Mode. Hope that helps!

  12. I just finisheddddd!! Haven't got the "??? ending" though. I'm afraid it will spoil the true end mood I have right now hahaha. It is such an extremely beautiful story. Best visual novel story I've had in a while. The song We Are Legend is also epic. >.< The character drawn beautifully, but I feel the character graphic while their talking and their CGs is different. I like the picture more while they're talking though. Overall, it's just AMAZING! Thank you very much for making this into life! Looking forward to all of your next work. :)

  13. Wow, this game was really beautiful, I'm so touched!!! I cried, and smiled, and laughed! And I completed only one ending, so I'm now going to complete the others! Thank you for this amazing game! Thank you!

  15. I have played this game 3 times and got the coda 2 ending and the coda 3 ending but I can't seem to get the coda 1 ending...

    1. Thanks for playing! To get the first ending, try being as nice and polite to people as possible, then chose "Maybe they have a point" at the end. Does that help?

      Delete
  16. Is there a walkthrough available anywhere? I tried a link from one of the comments but the blog was deleted. I loved this game, started and finished today, and got the coda 2 and I really wanted to try and get the others now!

    1. Oh no, I wonder why the blog was deleted! I just posted a new walkthrough here:
