The mechanics seems easy to set up, but the level building and the difficulty curve show skill. This is a great game today.

I'm glad that the friendship ending is counted as a good ending too!
- Does the Steam version has more information about the Creator and Sorein's memories?
- Maybe a romantic ending with the Operator?
(I kind of wished Soren could get a subtitute admin to maintain them since their creator is...well, "not able to do that right". To say the last. T_T )
- Maybe an ending with both the Pilot and the Operator?
- Maybe with the Captain?
(If there is a yes to one of these hopes, I'm probably goint o buy the game on Steam as soon as I have some budget for a vn.) In any way, thank you for posting this game and for letting us play it free for those who can't afford to pay right away.
Wait a second; is this game this level of complex: do I have to learn Ren'py to unlock the true ending, or is it just something you made to get a self-tailored Closure for yourself ? If the code integrates Nari's comments into the game, then I guess I can copy-paste and adjust however I please without learning Ren'py...?
I can't decide whether you're an extremely creative metafiction nerd, or (please don't take this at first degree) sick for making character emulate awareness and relive such long and lucid sufferings.
Wait a second. How comes Aspen can sometimes see things?
Where mochi stick, reading the visual note from the creator, and asking the player to close their "eyes". I underestimated the implication of that. And of Chris loosing her m while eating mochi (in fact wasn't it in her hair)?
I can't be sure that we're our own kind of Cthulhu, or if there is ready some depth in these metaphor about the game being visual and characters not having eyes and their sprites and background disappearing first, but the their text as well.
Am I supposed to save and restore the sprites manually to unlock the true ending? Because the "true ending I got was...
I mean, from the little I had understood, uncomplete (kidding, but maybe that actually explains it).
Compared to the rest of the game, the "true" ending doesn't seem so ultimate and great.
Maybe if I start the game again, the characters will have eyes, or will understand what eyes are at least. (Also, how comes Aspen know what eyes are already? and how comes Nori and Hope can remembers alternate timelines before the ending?"
Could someone give me a clue? I've read Nari's messages and restored them.
But I know one thing; that I would pay big for a full game where you are a character in the script and you are present for the final show ("it'd only be fair"). n and a would be so happy to finally meet the real person behind this.
Where can I download the demo?
I'm very hyped for this game that seems liks it's going to scratch that very special game-with-action-happening-in-a-computer itch to me.
I mean the design reminds me of Thomas was Alone - I dearly loved that game!
Cool. I like the theme and the design.
If you are still interested in developping a game using the minesweepter mechanics, I would love to get to play something with that design with addition features like:
- Both mouse buttons clear the aread around a tile with a number, just like in the original game.
- Progression: you pick a set of fixed maps to play in order (alternating between one easy and one hard, and increasing the difficulty of both steadily until the end)
- There are about three or four "worlds" with different variations of yellow and differnt bee species.
- Challenges: a meny listing challenges: "find x bees in x seconds", "reach level 10", collect x honey").
- Unlockables: three different designs for the flags
- Goals/quests: Cells completely surrounded by bees are filled with honey, and the player need to collect a minimum amount of honey on every levels.
- Scenario: You are working as a beekeper, or a bear or an something looking for honey...
- Enhanced Interactivity: bees move at every five clicks, and they spawn new bees every fifteen clicks.
If you eventually develop this please let me know. Thanks.
Even if it is a little game, the level of realism actually taught me how US people bake (we don't have the same measurments in the EU), so I got a bit attached to it. It would be lovely to get more content someday.
Thank you for publishing.
I played halfway through Ciel and the first tenth of Aholly.
I mean to fill a reclamation!
First, how comes there is no polyamor routes? These two knights are impossible to chose between, and seeing them turn jealous of each other was torture... (wait, I said "the two" didn't I? Sorry. make that three: Anton, Florian, and Ai AND DON'T TELL ME TAHT'S NOT POSSIBLE lalala I don't wnat ot hear it. I co-ship them all four together and it's reality and you can't change it. ><
(I read a few comments and it seems that Yvin is a favorite and Florian the least popular .... HERESyyy... Actually, I was agonizing all over Yvin moments wondering where my hare- Imean my friends, had gone at the time; am really not a fan of the Yvin-type neither in frienship nor in romance. So I'm glad you made Florian. Thank you!
...But. The polyamor route. ><
I really really would be grateful for an option to keep all three happy and closely knit.
I mean having best friends torn up in a rivalry and then one of the two abandoned behind... this is cruel to the player...why did the guy who made the Moon Obervatory create these umberably cute and twisted worlds? The cuteness actually build on the psychological horror after we see what happens and how everyone seems resigned and placid about the cruelty...brrr)
Also, since the plot is linear, at some point, we have to put up with other characters advances whether we like them or not, while our babies are in danger or worrying over us! Naowy Ma'am! This is unacceptable, so here i come! To fill a request.
And to throw a tantrum. A polite tantrum. But one nonetheless. (But don't take this too seriously ;)
These worlds seems so pure and lovable and them some foul character come and introduce perversion, and from then one, even the gorgeous designs can't prevent the taint to remain on the experience, I...
I was looking for fluff and comfort, and ma not sure the series are for me. And it's very very difficult because the georgous art and adrogynous MC and guys I just can't
This game is excellent!
It's easily the best cheesy parody of fanfiction or horrid roantic novels that I've got the pleasure to experience in decades, if ever!
it's a fine work of art conducted with brio.
I'm amazed by the subtlely of some scenes that joke about many things at once in many ways at once; as if humor was an opera or something.
Enjoyable in the same way that Matrix 4 can be.
More seriously: I want to add this in my 'paid' game list - not joking: author, would you consider allowing donation for this please?
Ranting/inviting debate about Detroit: Become Human (type STOP to story receiving theses comments)
"decide who you are- an obedient machine... or a living being, endowed with free will?" (a quote from Detroit: Become Human)"
But, despite of what pop culture is force feeding us with, for a real android is absolutely not a living being, and so can't be endowed with free will, no matter what the scope and relativity of that free will is (read what the expert in AI say about it online if you want; it's very interesting).
The consciousness never comes from nowhere: it always has to come from an already existing lifeform, whether they are human or not. To make a creature sentient, apparently, it takes to imprint a shard of your own spirit on it, and that's not what Kamzki have been doing. He was depicted like some megalomaniac crazy scientist with a serious God complex. As usual.
So the whole philosophic topic felt like a forced comparison / metaphor for humans beings versus spirituality, that didn't really care about exploring the AI it depicted, just like most fiction about AI do... In that aspect, I was disappointed.
(And yet, yet I might be mistaken, because there have been alternative endings with some epilogue scenes implying that Kamzki was manipulated by another human manager of Cyberlife and had no real idea of what he was doing to some degree, and that allowed for a variety of interpretation on what the tale was really about.)
Still, overall, This is my soul and the Tron original movie, created more realistic scenarios regarding an AI being born sentient / becoming sentient (imo and from what I read from the experts and from spirituality): in both cases, each program had a unique programmer that put all they had into their creature and more or less unconsciously wanted to believe that it would carry their spirit, so much that a part of that human being bled onto the code.
Frightening in responsibility, precious, and so romantic...
(you can fight me over this I welcome it ;)
- This game is free!
-And it's called the free market! Please settle down.
Wait, are the birds an IA? Are we teaching it, working for free on a tool that we don't even know what it will be used for? ^^;
"the mc's sprite shouldn't be there because some players might not resemble it, and this in some cases could ruin the experience (this wasn't the case with me because I resemble the sprite a lot)"
Usually for a generic-looking MC I'd agree, but this is one of rare VNs when the MC not only doesn't look white, but looks very black.
...In light of these statistics, who'd get the galls to complain about it without looking hypocrite? Just let the nice game balalnce things a little, girl. I've got nothing against European looking MC, I put up with it without any problem, so I expect people to put up with this perfectly fine Mc as well, period.
Besides, the MC is drawn beautifully, and the way her complexion contrast with the RO is just georgeous and poetic. We don't focibly have to invite others' bs into our head, y'know.
It's part of the Terms of Service if I'm not mistaken: when you back one you agree to the informed risk that the project might not be done. The backbone of patreon and kickstarter seem to be based on trust and faith alone.
(I went to search about that for another project where I almost got cheated.)
Ah yeah, that's cruel... (˘:—˘:) (more seriously, sorry for the guilt trip; hoping that it wasnt too serious)
Well English isn't mine either. Now, given the way you wrote your posts, I'd say yeah, it looks like it's going to be readable (:P. And that's me trying to be funny, here.)
Besides, there would be Silas inside. Goodness, that's a big yes, of course, and please ma'am!
Thanks for the recs! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ
I'll check out Tales 18+!
PS: yeah I write. But I don't feel confident to link my texts here. And there is no way to PM each other, apparently, so telling more might be tricky...
"do try 'Demon Crushers' - they're are the best (no AI there though;))" D,:
Oh fanfiction in multiple scenarios... Yes. That needs to be done. Through twine, or a CLI game, or even by tormenting the CSS on ao3. Challenge accepted. I have been planning to write a non linear Tron fanfiction in that way for long, anyway. Wait. That wasn't a challenge? and you won't write fanfiction? But-but. .
I guess I'll just accept that there is no more AI content for me to munch on. I'll just have to play This my Soul on repeat every year for the rest of my life. (I would like you to know that I'm secretly crying inside. . _.)
