Hey there! 

I'm writing about this game for my student paper at uni and I was wondering if you minded me including a piece of your review as a quote? All credit will be given to you, of course :)

(1 edit)

I just sent it over. Hopefully I did everything right, lol. 

Sure, how would I do this?

So long story short, I was playing the game and I had to shut down my computer the improper way (holding power key) because windows flipped out on me. Upon relaunching the game, all of my sprites with my character are gone, the gallery is empty like I haven't played. Before I reset, the percentage of game text scene dropped from 50 something percent to 0.03% and all of the endings I had completed are gone except for one, the latest one I got. 

I can access my old saves (except for the most recent save I made before I shut the computer down) but the game does not register the completion on the extras menu , it's basically acting as if I've never played before.  When I try to load my most recent save I get this: 

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

Is there any fix? 

Nathan Prescott. Rich kid that's buddies with Victoria and bullies Max in the first game.

Sadly, not yet. I haven't had a lot of free time thanks  to classes. 

Markus though. I'm looking forward to his route, it was a tie between him and Randal for my first play through. Sorry I couldn't help out :(

Thank you much! I didn't know you needed to be in the same House in order to get the special endings, so you really helped me out there. Off I go to angst/pine over Randal some more.

Can anyone help me out on getting Randal's? I have two of his...the Co-morbid ending and the Mark David one. But I kinda wanna unlock  all of his before I move on to Heath and Markus. 

I chose fear when I was about to be bitten but my character was a Mavvar, so I don't think the House is chosen based off that alone.
