    Crash: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘setDimensions’ of null when skipping text at rapid speed. Game appears to be visual novel style, but with a lot of walking around. Not sure if the walking around portion was really necessary. Might have been better to map the skip to ctrl or such which is more standard for Visual Novels.

    Game ends fairly abruptly. The idea is somewhat interesting in terms of potential, but there doesn’t seem to be much use made of it. There just wasn’t enough to really capture interest. This is partially due to how chopped the game feels at the end.

    The sound doesn’t really seem to match the mood of each scene. The graphics at least do seem to represent what is important, though it does not necessarily capture all the details.

    Could this be a good game? In the future, yes. At the current point, there just isn’t enough to know where the game is going. Hopefully it will move in a more positive direction.

I really like it. I loved the story and how it unveils. To be honest, it seems more like a visual novel than an rpg. However, I hope to see more of it, and maybe buy it after it is released.


  • Great story
  • The art and the characters really gives the game a sense different from any other game.
  • You can feel how the characters feel when talking

Cons/Things to work out: 

  • There were a few typos in the initial scene
  • Some seemingly passable terrain isn't passable at all
  • The reception of the Bail Bond Store looks very empty (not sure if it is on purpose)
  • The player can't really interact with the story,

Great job, keep it up!


This one has a pretty interesting story. I hope to know the rest of it....


I loved playing your demo.  This is a very exciting prologue to your game, and I look forward to seeing the full version come out.  I love the original graphics and the font that you used.
