Thank you for checking out the demo!

Thank you so much for playing until Kikka made it. That's a tough task, haha. It was great seeing you find a way to the other side and I'm glad you enjoyed it.
If you're ever looking for another creepy VN to play, feel free to check out our other horror game "XOXO Blood Droplets". It's only a demo, but the demo has 13 different endings to find (all bad) and several 'to be continued' conclusions. It's got a very different tone than Lake of Voices, though we definitely think it's entertaining to go through.
Aaw, it's no problem. Thank you so much! I'm really glad you enjoy the game that much. And I have to agree that the guide probably does have a special 'interest' in Kikka, haha. Even though none of his endings are that great ;v;.
Thank you so much ^^! The last two bonus events are unlocked the same way. Here's a step-by-step guide (SPOILERS):
-On Night 1 let Bemelle die, save Margret and save Lu
-Romance Lu (spend time with just him whenever possible and always be kind/reassuring)
-At the beginning of Night 2 when the Guide is in trouble, don't do anything, just let the timer run out. This is a major choice that sets you on a new story branch. Finding that opens up a fair amount of new possibilities, so you may want to try going through that story route blind for the first time to avoid spoilers. Or feel free to follow the rest of the steps outlined below.
-Continue to romance Lu by letting him open up about himself
-Keep going and going no matter what happens
-When the guide goes to handle something on his own, have Kikka check on him
-And then continue on until the end of the game. There are one to two more choices that you'll get, but you can do whatever you want with those. Any of the four ending versions of that route will unlock the bonus events
The guide does have multiple endings, but none of them are great, aha. I can't say for sure if you romanced him properly or not because of that.
Good luck! I hope you'll enjoy the remaining content :D
I'm glad you like it! There are three endings for his route (SPOILERS): One where he comes back to help you but you don't chose to gain more affection through the remaining options, one where you get full affection and choose to listen to the Guide in the final timed choice of the route (that's the one where both of them fall into the lake), and one where you get full affection and chose not to the listen to the Guide during the final timed choice. The guide also has an ending that's sort of based around him in someone else's route. And it's only in that one ending that they both die.
Good luck! I hope you'll enjoy his other conclusions :]
Aaw, thank you so much for all of that ;v;! The guide is definitely a lousy guy who lets everyone down, haha. I'm really glad you think Lu's route was worth the time, though. The little lad tries his best.
Thank you so much for the kind words! That is a bug and we just fixed it. If you delete your current game file and download the new version, it should be just fine . Although, your current save file might not be salvageable. The glitch came from the choice where the guide is in trouble on the shore and you can choose to watch, throw the lantern, or let the time run out. If you've saved passed that point, there's no way to fix the glitch in that save file. You'll have to load an early save or start a new file. I'm really sorry for the trouble!
Thank you so much for being so understanding! I'm really glad you like the game ;v;
You can delete your save files by hovering over them and pressing the delete key on your keyboard. Then you can start a new file with the new build you downloaded. It's fine if not all the information is wiped clean, so don't worry about going that far. As long as you start a fresh file, it should be alright.
We've been trying, but the problem is that you're getting an error because of something that isn't there in the code. On our ends we do have that code and we can't replicate the error. Maybe something went wrong specifically with your download of the game. You could try deleting the game, reloading it, and starting a new file. I know that'd be quite inconvenient, but I'm not sure there's any other way to get your game to notice the code that's already there. I'm sorry about this!
Haha, thank you so much for all of that! It was really fun reading about your emotional journey.
Our next horror game is XOXO Blood Droplets, which is a disturbing black comedy. So a very different tone from Lake of Voices, aha. But after XOBD, we do hope that our third horror title will be haunting and depressing like LoV was!
Thanks for letting us know! We'll get that issue removed. You can do all of Everett's content without using the Guy List, so you will still be able to keep going through the game and finish his route. Just don't open that page for now, aha.
Thank you so much! I'm happy you like the voice acting and art. Yep, there are a lot of different combinations on who lives and who dies. I hope you have a good time finding a conclusion that's happier than the one you initially got.
It's really nice to know that you think Lu was well done . We certainly wanted to do right in the way we presented that kind of difficult subject.
When you download the game you have to unzip it using WinRAR or a similar program. In the folder XOXO Droplets folder there should then be an application file, clicking that will launch the game. If the application file isn't there a few things could've gone wrong; the file wasn't unzipped fully/something went wrong in the unzipping process, the download didn't go through properly in the first place, or maybe you accidentally downloaded the Mac build instead of the Windows/Linux build. I'm not sure specifically what could have happened for you, but hopefully that gives you a place to start. Good luck!
Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Off the top of my head I believe you get that CG by romancing Bemelle, saving Lu, and then on the island spending time alone with just Bemelle (so you get the CG where he's holding his sword). Keep playing through and you should get it before the start of the second night.
If that's not it let me know. I wasn't able to check the game itself because I have to leave the house right now, aha, Good luck!
Thank you very much :D! We did aim for the story to have more meaning than just a walk across the lake and I'm glad you appreciated that. I'm sorry Lu broke your heart, though, haha. He's a difficult one.
Yeah, that does sound strange. Perhaps try selecting 'Watch' instead of letting the timer run out. With Lu, letting the time run out on that choice can go two ways; taking you to the same result as the Watch choice or taking you to a totally different result. Maybe partially romancing him caused confusion. I'm sorry for the trouble!
Aaw, thank you so much! That's all super sweet and just wonderful to hear. I'll make this comment quick for now so you don't have to wait for a walkthrough, haha. Lu is by far the hardest to save, but there is a way to do it as long as you get on the right story branch and don't ever stop until it's truly over.
To get on the needed storyline for Lu you'll naturally have to romance him. Stay with him as much as possible and always say the things that make him feel better. You have to let Margret or Bemelle die, but you can't let both of them die. Then when you're on the shore at the start of the second night, the romance tip says you 'can' help the guide, but you don't 'have' to like it says in the Margret tips. Instead of helping or not helping, you can do nothing by letting the time run out. That will open up a different storyline. There are new ways for Lu to die, but one way to finally save his skin. Good luck! If you need more advice, just let me know :D.
Thank you for saying so many nice things <3! I'm really happy that the game lived up to expectations. Lu is a precious bby. Good luck finding the last two CGs! If you need any advice on where you might find them, feel free to ask :>.
Haha, and glad you also like XOD. It's nice to do different types of stories.
Oh, cool! Thank you very much for giving it a go. I'm glad it left an impression :D. There is that issue with demo saves potentially not working in the full version, so I'm sorry for the inconvenience if you have to start from the beginning and skip back to where you were.
