How do you see the world when nothing is real?

Each character was assigned to give a statement to be posted on this store page. Their responses are below:

CHRIS: Hello! I’m so excited that you’re considering playing our game! I'll tell you as much as I can. So we're actually not the full game. We're the demo! No one knows if the real game is out yet or not, or what genre we're really supposed to be....it's kind of confusing. But that's just fine, I guess! Anyway, I suppose it's already been determined where you'll be going and what kinds of things you might be doing? I hope I get to actually meet you later. I've really been looking forward to it! Have a nice day!

HOPE: hey if u get any choices that lead u to a mochi store go there thats where the cool ppl in the game r if you dont youll probably lose ok bye

ASPEN: Hey YOU! Yeah, YOU! Wanna chat it up with some cute girls? (And a super cute non-binary person?) Then you've definitely found the right game! We're not like those other inferior dating simulators. We have the advantage of knowing who, how, why, and what we truly are! Well, uh...mostly. That's where you come in! You can be the one to tell us once and for all what we're really doing here! And with the help of your good buddy Aspen, we'll ensure that this game gets its best ending! Our fate rests upon your shoulders, O wise player!

NARI: [Declined to give a statement.]

ISADORA: WHAT?!??! MY QUOTE IS GOING TO BE LAST????? THAT'S NO FAIR!!! YOU SHOULD CHANGE IT SO THAT I'M, LIKE, AT LEAST SECOND? OR THIRD?!?!!? LAST IS SO STUPID!!!!!! NARI DIDN'T EVEN SAY ANYTHING AND SHE'S NOT EVEN LAST!!!!! UUUUUGGGGGGGGGGG (...wait so what exactly should I say then? ...oh, ok.) Hi! I'm Isadora, and...uh... (Oh, whatever, this is so stupid! Was that enough? Can I go now?)


A NOTE FROM THE CREATOR

Hello. I am the Creator. I created this Visual Novel's script, code, and music.

The game runs in the RenPy engine.

It takes around two hours give or take to complete everything.

It is recommended that players are at least 12 years or older.
The game contains no jump scares or shock imagery.

The complete soundtrack is also available. It contains a little over an hour of music.

Thank you to SparkBag, Keeby, and Alexander A. McDonald for creating the majority of the visual assets.

Please enjoy, free of charge.

-The Creator.

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce jeu découvert grâce au bundle.

Il m'a fait réfléchir sur des question philosophique ^^

Les personnages sont bien écrit, les musiques se démarque.

Je conseil ce jeu très fortement c'est une expérience à vivre.

beaucoup d'autre personne ont bien mieux commenté le jeu, qui sait un jour peut être une traduction de Metaware pour ceux qui n'arrive pas à lire Anglais. ^o^

Just a commentaire Fr.

Someone might have a use for this...

I think I've decided to...change the ending? We'll see. It just feels like...well, that would be spoiling things.

Have a nice day!

(btw chris is really cute)

Haha thanks for calling me a nerd :')

perfection

a good friend told me to try

that not my best friend for nothing

Take Doki Doki Literature Club. Make an antithesis out of it.

Take Stanley Parable. Make a narration derived from it.

Take Undertale. Make a remix soundtrack out of it.

Mix it all together. And you get this game. 

Unfortunate though that this demo is like the Stanley Parable demo. Self-contained. Still good.

Quite intriguing. Going into it I had my expectations for the narrative, though its angle was thought provoking. Will provide further comments after finishing the game. 

The "placeholders" are solid, would prefer that to something "fully rendered."

Solid game where a lot of the fun can come from getting too invested into ruining these characters lives for a single piece of dialogue...totally didnt name my character Nari once to see if she would call her own name forgettable/stupid in that one scene....

Definitely gives me that undertale vibe of retrying endlessly all sorts of different playthoughs with one or more changes somewhere to see some new dialogue, a lot more convenient due to the skip button though. A little ddlc too, but it still maintains its own style and humor, in a colorful way, the musics great too. i want to write a lot more, but there arent any spoiler tags so i dont want to be an ass

Looking forward to the full release! got this game as apart of the giant pack for charity, and after playing the game im a certified monster, so thats cool. 













P.S Currently buying truckloads of gummy bears to bargain these heavy sins i hold. Nari pls dont beat me up

It Was Amazing

A somewhat deep game about... well, i don't even sure what is the game all about anymore, but i can't recommend this game enough, this game deserve more attention, i think the only reason why this game didn't take off is the demo in the title when it actually a plot device lol, but hopefully i could help this game to get more attention that it deserve

Just in case you are a wandering player checking the comment to see what is the game is all about,this game is a visual novel game( you would understand why i bold the word visual when you finish the game ), when you started the game they would greet you with some quote, it might seems out of place at first, but you will understand along the way

I named my self pussy slayer and it's so funny how they react to your name lmao
