I could translate it, since it's short. Tell me if you are interested in a Spanish translation, please, and we'll discuss it privately (on discord, for example).

Sex only (sorry!).

I loved this story! Moving, cute, with a touch of fantasy... The ending is a tad bittersweet for my taste, though, but I understand it fits the protag, so he can move on and make his way in life.  

Fully recommendable!

I've just played the game and, same as with Tomai and AWOO, it left me with a silly smile on my face! I just love the feeling of positivity of your games, where love and friendship are always deeply linked, highlighted by the bright colors and the soft, rounded lines of your art. Your sex scenes are also always joyful and pure, a delight to read!

I'm looking forward to the final version of AWOO, and to everything else you two will deliver in the future!

Really, really good... Realistic characters and an intriguing plot in a well built universe. Looking forward to the follow-up!

Thank you again for going out of your way to help me :)

Aaaaw, thank you so much for the detailed review!

Someone told me the same about one of the tracks, but I haven't been able to catch which one it is :(  All the music was supposed to be cleared for commercial purposes, so I'll listen again with headphones and download the track again or replace it. So thanks for the heads up!

Really cute and fun to play!

I'll be looking forward to the full version ;)

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it so far!

Beautiful game... both the aesthetics and the music, with a well-paced story that makes you think and feel in equal parts and leaves you wanting for more.

Eeeeerrr... It means if you want Tirs to be the seme or the uke in each sexual scene. Is it clearer this way? lol It's a bit embarrassing to explain!

Tienes que compartir el build completo, no solo el ejecutable. Si no, falta el resto del juego.

Alguien que lo haya descargado de itchio te ha dicho que le funcionado bien y ha podido jugar?

Está hecho en Renpy?

Me da un error al intentar descargar el juego... :(  Seguro que está bien que sea un archivo .exe en vez de un .zip?

Aaaaaw, thank you for the long and detailed review! I'm glad you like it, because it's being super fun to made, both for the artist and me! ^_^

*rolls eyes* Maybe we can find a solution for that... A short route for him or something.

Yes, sorry.

Hehehe! He will feature a bad ending, but not a whole route.

Thank you! I hope it doesn't disappoint!

No, of course not! Your concern is legit: non-con should always be tagged!

(I love Beyond Eden too, by the way).

Hello! I've just added some trigger warning tags. There's also telltales every time you choose the right option... so it will be easy to avoid the bad endings ;)

As you can see in the screenshots, the backgrounds are stil placeholders. Anyway, I think as soon as the second CG is finished we'll upload a demo anyway, even with the missing backgrounds, so you can expect it next week.

This sounds amazing and fun!

Me encanta ese aspecto de fotografía antigua en sepia de las ilustraciones, con manchas causadas por el tiempo y todo. Es un concepto muy creativo y original, chapó!

So far, I love the demo! I don't enjoy so many explanations about the gameplay, but I understand for some people might be useful, so it's okay. And I guess we now have the option of adopting a pet?? That's really great!

Anyway, I wanted to let you know I found this bug, during the night masturbation session: 

[code]

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

You'll make me cry T_T 

Good luck! Looking forward to the finished version!

Thank you for your input! The planned release date is June 2018 :)

And about the skip options... I didn't think they'd be so bothersome! I'll try to add an additional menu for them at the start of the game, then.

Lol unless we are time travelling, yes!

The text is supposed to start on the top part of the textbox, but I see your point: the name tag is slightly over the text, right? Thank you, I'll fix it in the next update.

Yes, but thank you! I'm working on an update of the demo that will be also uploaded to Steam, so this bug will disappear shortly. Thank you for playing the demo!

I tried opening the demo (itchio version) through Renpy, and this is the error I got, in case it helps for other cases:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

(1 edit)

It's an old laptop with Windows Vista. But Renpy runs fine, I even make my own visual novels in this device! I tried what you said and still nothing, so I'm downloading it from your website now. *crosses fingers*

EDIT: ...and nothing again. It must be my laptop, then :( Oh, well. I'll try from another computer, then. There must be some kind of incompatibility. 

Yes, Windows

I wanted to play the demo and then buy the game, but I've tried to download it three times and the file doesn't run :(

The first error is that the unzip doesn't create a new folder, but instead drops the files independently in my "Documents" folder; that has happened to me once or twice with Renpy games before, but all of them were able to run all the same. With HaG, though, when I click on the icon nothing happens, the game doesn't start. 

I don't know if perhaps the demo build for itchio is corrupted and some file is missing

Thank you! The full game will be 10 dollars, and the pre-order option asks for the same price. You can also wait until next month, when we'll offer A Hand in the Darkness and the pre-order of Chasing the Stars as a bundle for a special price.

Thank you very much for your kind words!

And yeah, Pol is a cutiepie! My beta sent me that annoying error, too; it doesn't appear in my game, but it's easy to solve. So thank you for pointing to it ;)

There will be an updated demo at the end of this month (September), when we have the definitive backgrounds and more music, and have redone some minor GUI and visual elements! ^_^

But... the game crashed??! You didn't happen to save the error page, did you?

Hello, I'm playing the Spanish version (diamond/Hunter route) and I got an unskippable error. I copied-pasted the whole error report in a pm through the Lemmasoft Forum.

There's also two sentences in English when Hunter and Keegan are back to the hall area before the ceiling starts falling down on them, and some typos.

Thank you for such a detailed review! You don't know how relieved I am to hear you like Tirs! It was my biggest fear so far, making a protagonist so workaholic and bad at love relationships that people wouldn't like him.

I didn't touch the text speed options, in fact, so it's supposed to be the default Renpy one, but I'll take a look at it.

About the backgrounds, you are perfectly right: the office, toilets and clubs are not photomanips, but true bgs made by Oncle Mugen for the Lemmasoft Forum, but they are placeholders while Justyna makes the final bgs (like the cafeteria one). We might end using some of Mugen's (those clubs bgs are really gorgeous ), but we'll try to at least make them look closer to our style.

About the option of skipping all adult scenes... I'll think about it. I thought that perhaps people would like the chance to skip only some of the scenes, with the characters they don't like much, for example, or could change their mind and decide to see one scene in a while. I hope more people give their two cents on the question!

Thank you, dear! The demo is still mostly unbetaed, but I hope my beta reader will finish with it during this week. I'm glad you like it so far, and thank you again for the offer!
