It didn't work, no, sorry. I didn't give me the option to open it anyway. I put it in my dock and still it acted the same.
If it helps, I'm on Catalina.
Hey, Chiel! I just wanted to let you know--when you package all three versions of Nusantara together (Windows, Mac and Linux) the Mac one doesn't work. Can you package it separately again? I can play my old version but I can't play this one.;;
Hello, I just purchased this game and I'm very excited to play! Unfortunately, the game will not open fully.
The icon appears in my dashboard and disappears almost immediately.
I have a macOS Mojave vers. 10.14.5--the latest version. Please advise if possible! Thank you :^)
You cannot technically choose who you romance. KP can only be with James (and not Ricardo or Carmelita) and vice versa. On the other hand, Ricardo can only be with Carmelita (and not James or KP.) This game is about two pre-established romances that have already begun before the story.
A fun, mysterious romp! I'm not much of a gamer so I went in a bit worried about my skills but dang if I'm not grateful for that Rebalanced mode.
- SPOILER FREE -
I like the story so far and the characters are all interesting. While my second favorite character is hands down P, AKA best butt-kicking monster-harassin' lass, my absolute favorite to my surprise was the main character himself! The MC is so likable that playing made me curious about what he would say and how he'd interact with the characters moreso than getting to know the other characters. (Even though I was interested in them too!)
Since the mystery is multi-tier and the MC himself doesn't know his own backstory, getting to know him as a character is a fun, interesting ride.
Of all of the mysteries of their pasts, I am most invested and curious about unveiling his.
That's it, that's all I have to say! I'm definitely looking forward to the future release.
Thank you for letting me know! That's the first time I've heard of this error... I can't test it unfortunately as my system is Apple so I tried repackaging it. Maybe something got corrupted the first time? I can't be certain but I did re-upload a new version. Please try with this version and let me know if you're able to play it.
1. Karetha is pretty cool! I'm glad you like her!
2. Haha, thanks for your guess. ; v ;
3. Karetha and Noiya have no relationship, so Noiya only appears in Nhivas' storyline early on in the story. Each character has a different background, so they have different stories. I recommend playing both sides of the pair for the full story! ^^
Wow, thanks so much for loving KP's design! I had a lot of thoughts in mind when it came to how I wanted her to come across and Shida did an amazing job! ^^ I'm glad you like so many things about her!
I'm also glad to hear you sing the praises of Dragon. :^) She's got a personality that I think is quite relatable (definitely more relatable then KP's anyway, haha.)
Thanks so much for enjoying the game! :D I hope you stick around for Singles, too! ^^
^^ Oh, you did both Kitten and James routes, huh? :D I'm glad you enjoyed them and found them cute! And thank you for catching the Star Trek reference! Actually, no one's mentioned it before >w>;; I thought it was too subtle, so I'm glad you recognized it, haha. Thanks a lot for playing and I hope you enjoy the other couple!
I think Ricardo and Carmelita's relationship is certainly more normal than KP and James' is, but hopefully enjoyable for you all the same. Thanks so much for playing! >///<
I loved this game!! SO MUCH that I ended up writing fan fiction for it because of reasons > w >
All in all, I loved this MC! I loved every single dialogue choice so I played through every combination. The MC's character really grew on me, especially because her interactions were so funny and... dare I say relatable? I liked the puzzles even though I normally suck at them, but it was pretty fun!
It's crazy because I totally went into this thinking Anzo was going to be my favorite character (and he kind of... is) BUT Marcel's romance with the MC was my favorite and my heart definitely palpitated during his CG...
I don't think I've ever played a game as light-hearted, creative and funny! I would've never thought of something like this, but it's pretty hilarious!
Looking forward to the 100% completed version! /o/
Sorry that it was short! It was an entry for NaNoRenO so the entire project was completed in one month. Thank you very much for your input :'D I'm glad that you liked the game and its concept /o/ and that you find KP adorable.
I'm sure she'd be pleased to find a human with such good tastes. :^P
Thank you so much for playing the game (and not spoiling the endings! ^^) The positive endings are certainly endings that are more touching...maybe Ending 3 touched you more because Ending 4 is more bittersweet (because of One Eyes' sacrifice)? I can't really tell you why you felt that way, but just a suggestion!
I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. I hope to make more original faerietale games like it soon! ^^ If you liked this one, I suggest trying out Our Celestial Faerietale as well. Right now it's just a demo, but the full game should be released early next month. Like Of Ice & Snow, it's also intended to be an original faerietale. :^)
Thanks again for playing!! I am so glad that you enjoyed it.
Enjoyable and creative! The ending could've been more satisfying... and I would've liked music, so I gave four stars for silence. :^) (I tried to rate without music or graphics, but it wouldn't let me.) The background is pretty, and suits the VN so no complaints here.
1. Did believing you could play this only once impact how you made decisions?
Not really. Usually when I play any kind of interactive fiction, I am playing for the most optimistic ending. If I get the happiest ending, usually, I don't feel any urge to replay it. I just like being happy. ^^;; So since thisVN was tinged with a bit of sadness, I tried my best. No regrets!
2. What do SAL and Ash look like in your mind? Did you mentally assign a gender to either or both characters?
SAL didn't have a gender in my mind. I imagined the robot as a computer with a keyboard... it took me a second to realize that Ash was talking out loud (when he was replying in seconds) but all in all I thought of was a computer with Ash typing into it. I did imagine Ash as a boy, though.
3. What choices did you make? How did your game end?
I chose logical responses and didn't sugarcoat anything. So I started outright with "we need to talk." At the end, I choose for SAL to be unsure of where their relationship would end. I guess I figured, SAL is making logical assessments, but emotions, while sometimes logical, aren't generally linear (like there's no A+B=C) so it ended with SAL and Ash still together while SAL pondered their future.
4. What did you like and dislike about this game?
I liked the music a lot. There wasn't anything I really disliked.
5. How did this game make you feel?
Bittersweet! ^^;; But that's because I'm an optimistic person and love romance a lot. Actually though, the more I think about SAL (actually, the more I wrote answer 7) the more sweet I feel about it. I liked it a lot.
6. Do you want to see these characters again? What would you want to see in a follow-up?
Hm... I don't really have any ideas for that... I guess I would like to see how other react, especially if SAL is not the only robot of their kind.
7. What predictions do you have for SAL and Ash's relationship? Where do you see it going?
Ash... I feel like it's possible that they'd have a future. Because even if SAL can't "love" Ash, its clear that at the very least, SAL is concerned or cares about Ash--otherwise, I think collecting data would take priority over Ash's feelings. Additionally, SAL cared about disappointing Ash and didn't want to hurt Ash's feelings... so I believe SAL cares about Ash and that that would be enough. It helps that SAL didn't reject Ash immediately as well... I feel like caring about a person can be enough if the other person is satisfied, which Ash does seem to be.
8. Any other things you want to mention?
This was great! I'm glad I played it.
This game is super enjoyable and great re-play value. I love obtaining the outfits as a gallery option.
When I first started, I had a hard time with the Cliques, but I caught on later and managed them fine through the end. I can only wonder, though, how it's possible to get cliques maxed out (have yet to do this, but I've only done two playthroughs.)
Currently obtained Bae and Pran (still working on getting three of Bae's outfits) and so far, Pran is still my favorite. His obstinance for no reason makes it somehow amazing and I can never get tired of his date refusals every time the MC called (and the fact that he then always proceeds to show up later anyway?? Amazing.)
Pran also had some cute moments and since Pran didn't really deny things and always went out with the MC in the end, I felt like Pran really liked the MC (or, okay. Like I was free to interpret it that way since actions speak louder than words! :'^) Or something.)
I think I'm going to hit up Jeremy next and then I'll get to the "leftovers" (LOLLL BY THE WAY, I LOVE THE MC'S BIRTHDAY MEETINGS. For the second one in year 2, I was literally Nate. LITERALLY Nate the whole time.) All in all, this game is a blast in a half! I don't want to say too-too much more... I was going to post my reply/feelings on LSF, but here people might see it more, so. :'D
I am so sorry for this late reply! Thank you so much for enjoying the game! Haha, quite a few people did complain that it wasn't accurate enough, so I appreciate your comments. Thanks a lot for enjoying the game so thoroughly! Xiumin's route is one of my favorites as well! (And Luhan's is pretty cute, too.)
Thanks for playing! Please look forward to our other releases.
Thank you so much for your reply. Personally, I think Of Ice & Snow is my most personal work so I am really attached to the project and its characters. I'm glad you understand Lalao and the Prince's relationship so well. Thanks so much for playing this game of mine (and for playing Pairs as well!)
Thanks so much for enjoying it! I hope that Ricardo's viewpoint is just as gripping. I don't have many characters like him, so I did enjoy writing his route immensely. (^: I'm also glad you enjoyed the writing and characters! I hope you enjoy future projects just as much!
I'm glad you liked it! And yay, played James first? He's such a cute, haha. I hope you enjoy Dragon's story, too! I would LOVE to correct any errors haha. You can send them to me for now-- [email redacted].
This game is great, quite interesting. As everyone else here, I also thought the character designs were great! I should also mention that I highly enjoyed the music! I wish I'd gotten more backstory, especially with the implications at the society is dying without human sacrifices--
but I think all things considered this was a great entry! Great job completing it, and I love the title. (^:
Awesome! If you can, please re-download since by accident, I messed up one of the codes to get James' bad ending. Haha... orz;;
Anyway, I asked the artist and I'll let you know! I believe it's SAI but I'm not certain.
edit: Shida used SAI. (^:
I was waiting for this to come out! I normally don't do horror at all, but I just loved the concept. (I hope itch. doesn't start recommend horror games to me since I downloaded this! :P)
Anyway, I LOVE the art style. The art was so whimsical that it suited it perfectly. I like the formula and how easy it is to die (you barely need a guide, haha.) It made me think that I could definitely do a game like that. :P I liked that there were three different protagonists.
The music was also excellent!
Now the romance progressed a bit quickly for me but that's understandable though, since NaNo. If I could say anything, I would say that a proofreader would've been a good thing to have. There were quite a few punctuation issues that didn't make the writing bad, but did make the writing less legible. Generally speaking, I think the protagonists were a little too similar to each other and I think the quiz should've been different (only in the sense that some of the options were clearly paired with a protagonist and therefore too linear.)
Good job completing NaNo!
This was a wild ride, very fun! Atsuya's character had more depth than expected. Great job on this game! I loved how shady Shuna's character was, and I felt bad for the
Fake Faceless Fiancé :'^( He was a nice guy.
I laughed a lot! Great job on this!
Wow, thank you so much! We're so glad you commented because we were getting nervous about the lack of feedback! ^^Thank you so much and I'm glad you're enjoying the characters! I have to say, I'm super curious as to who you played as first! ^^ Have fun getting off the endings! I hope you like them and I hope you like Pairs as much as we enjoyed creating it! (^:
The art and music were beautiful, the writing style was fine but... one thing I definitely was not sold on was Chiyo and Kouichirou's father-daughter relationship.
There was a lot of tell-not-show style exposition so the info dumps took me out of the story a bit... I wish the story could've been a bit richer. That said, as soon as Kodokushi came back, the story got a lot better in terms of pacing and writing and it made it seem like the entire VN was just filler because of that.
All in all, good, but could've been a lot better with some more thorough character development.
Ah, wow! Pure gold, hm? (^: I'll definitely continue to make games! And I am doing very well, thank you. (^: My favorite at the time I started this game was Chanyeol-- which is why I gave him such a large role as the guide-- but my favorite route in the game is Chen. (I do love them all, though, I admit.) Thanks for playing!
