finally i was fine starting with 18.1 - the 17 version was what i already played anyways, somehow. awesome update - and hell of a cliffhanger, again, lmao. you rock them cliffhangers XD. loved to see them all come closer, talk out shit n private stuff, learn more about them… and them piling up to watch the vid is priceless, i can almost feel the warm feeling up to here, that’s how it should be between buds… side note: cory is hawwwwt, in a cute way. can’t you squish him in somehow? he’d make the most adorable twink ever. dunno if you got inspiration from RL and there wasn’t any of him in it, otherwise hey, you created a valuable character, why not give him some space? ^^

so… didn’t even manage to play or even install my last update, and yay, there’s a new one! RL tends to come in the way of my gaming these days, lmao. anyways, i guess i can just dump the last update and DL this one here?
ok, i’ll try to answer so i’m kinda back “to where i was” with my choices..
and yeah i just got another warning about a zip from a site - not VN - where it didn’t do this like 2-3 weeks ago. must be some “improvement” from a recent chrome update :/ - nothing to do with your files
finally taking some time for VNs again, and i noticed that YAY, v.18 is here! (i had v.17 with the “hot” ending…) ~ looking forward to play - but just a question: some games here, when you update them, your saves or pretty much everything you had goes down the drain. how is it with str8, no danger of annihilation if i install the zip?
ah and i just got a warning from chrome, doesn’t wanna download the zip cuz insecure. guess it’s just because it’s an exe, hence false warning (chrome hasn’t done this on me yet, i only use it since last year when FF went 57… and my 56 started displaying wonky sites) - still, how comes?
wish you all the best Touha, get well, recover fast and stay healthy! we can wait for the game, your well-being is top priority ^^ actually i’m glad you’re still among us - the beginning of this post made me shudder at first TT
i really wanted to make Razix happy.. but i couldn’t figure the rhythm even after a few trials… yeah i’m ungifted like that. otherwise i loved the graphics, the sound, and ofc his beautiful red giant. but not being able to do the trick left Razix and me very frustrated TTT - i wish there was a cheat mode for idiots XD
awesome! ^^ ability to skip parts i don’t find fun or get stuck on in a game is a thing i always appreciate!
*i guess it says a lot about me… cuz hey.. if this was only possible in RL :sigh: *
loved human cargo, so i’m another one looking forward to this game! and Luke is sexxay ^^. vampire, demigod and caster? yesssss!
as to the minigames… would be cool! AS LONG as they’re not the kind that are either timed or demand mouse/keyboard skills/dexterity or speed… (unless they can be cheated/avoided) - cuz besides the interest in the stories and BL, there’s a reason i play visual novels: i suck at other games, lol.. and getting stuck in a point’n’click or VN because of a minigame is uber frustrating…
mkay…? must be quite recent then, i got Sweet Pool a few weeks ago and i still had to DL a patch from Jast Blue… but i think the game had been on steam for a while so maybe they don’t limit new games while still not bothering to “decensor”/free older games…
yay! will also wait for steam, even i’m burning to play the game - but will the steam version have all the +18 content too (with censor ofc)? or will a patch be needed?
they’re so annoying over there, with their mania to be sooo strict with +18 stuff while they don’t mind selling games featuring war, guns, killing, and undead or borderline female ecchi… i know valve plays a role, same as some other banking/card companies, but still…
take the time you need. no point rushing this if there was an issue, and then produce bugs on a game you already had gotten bug free ^^
i recently asked you about steam releases, but i have another question - you don’t have a producer account there yet, right? i wanted to follow you there and the search gave nothing…
oh i will ^^
yeah, same here, not an optimist in general. also in 2019 i thought it was the worst year of my life, then came 2020… and it was already worse than the previous year at the beginning of march. then i got a break - the pandemic kinda distracted me from the crap of the previous 5 months, can you imagine :/. an ahole the size of a large galaxy, and expanding, if you ask me >_< … besides, right now in these times, to be optimistic and merry you’d have to s**k a clown every day for breakfast or sth
yay steam, cool! i also like my games together, even if i have to wait 2-3 more weeks. but i think i would even have used paypal and for the 1st time bought sth/it here otherwise, i just can’t miss on them ^^
glad you’re back, take your time - even if i’m really impatient for both side and main game - RL is sometimes a *tch and we all don’t pick what’s happening in it. thank you for all the hard work you & your team put into those games! <3 ah btw.. you DO intend to sell those games on steam, right? i don’t do paypal usually, especially not when they ask for an account (depends)… i can’t bear the idea not to get those games TT
support did this for me in a wink.. but it was a unique thing. if you “claim” - willingly or not - a ton of games regularly, i think they won’t do it every time.
so yeah, adding an unclaim feature is sorely needed, +1
amazing! another awesome Rusty Lake game in pure cube style - i missed this soooo much! the puzzles are tough enough to make it worth playing, but no need for a WT, just patience & logic & creativity. also long enough to make it interesting but not too long to get tired. loved the theme, the passages to the different parts, the parts themselves… the great music… everything. happy anniversary Rusty Lake, and thanks for this game so extremely well done! i had lotsa fun playing this. the past is never dead and this particular cube/roots universe shall never pass!
just saw this game at 100% sale, and discovered the “claim” feature. thought it was a good idea. but after trying it out, i realized that 1) i can’t even play it with my gamepad even the tag “gamepad” showed this game, 2) i don’t like it, the sound grates on my nerves after 10 secs. but now it’s featured in my library, and i just don’t wanna see it there.
how can i UNCLAIM this game and make it disappear forever?
sure i enjoyed it - love the coloring & discovery! ^^ well, i wouldn’t ask for refund, i’m sure i’d love the full game anyways, i’d just enjoy the actual movement a lot more with a pad, lol. but the discovery part stays the same = interesting. but i’m glad you’re offering the p&c option now (soon). so that’s a buy then. i might wait until after the update to play it - if i can XD btw… if you ever thought of making a “search” sequel, i’d buy it too! loved those doors, and the paint brushes ^^ wink, nudge
nice game! i wishlisted it on steam, i like the general idea of recoloring a world. played the demo, and in a way i’m both thrilled for more… and i was expecting something like “search” which i love. i mean, a 2d point’n’click. so, in the demo, moving with the mouse wasn’t as fun as i thought, and i’m not using the keyboard! then i remembered i have an old gamepad i almost never use (i play mostly mouse games) - logitech dual action. it works in the windows settings, and i’m pretty sure i used it a few months ago in a (??) game. while i’m not really a gamepad user, for discolored i would really enjoy it way more than the mouse. but i don’t get it to work, in the settings there are fields for the keyboard and the mouse, not a gamepad, and pressing around the gamepad in the mouse fields is no use. what can i do to get this gamepad to work in discolored? i mean, i could play the full game with the mouse… but i know i’ll get upset a lot about the moving around. i plan to get it from steam this week.. if i get the pad to work..
EDIT: tested it on https://html5gamepad.com/ - works perfect!
yeah steam has pros… and cons. especially with lgbtq+ content, not easy to pass - unlike schoolgirl hentai, and sniper games :/ hmm you might be right about stripe, when i test pick card payment i see a stripe logo at the bottom.. worth checking. aah true i forgot about adding external games to the steam library, i only did it once, just hafta remember how. wasn’t there sth about a steam key? and yup, zags demo is already downloaded ^^
PARTIAL SPOILER ALERT! sooo… now that i just finished VIII, i KNOW what you meant about it getting better. everything i said before multiplied by a bunch! the renders have improved a lot, i think just after i wrote the last comment. especially various cool cam angles and a lot of new locations. love it when you totally go off from VN style into a real, free 3d story! the whole going out of the dorms/college is excellent, way to go! actually everywhere they went, i liked. also Braden’s toony slidermania side smile is finally gone, lol (didn’t comment on that one, i knew - or at least hoped - you’d fix it ^^). generally Braden looks sexier, i suck at comparing things but whatever you did worked! Z’s makeover too. the quality of everything just improved. then also yeah, action-wise, some wicked scenes too ^___^ … now we’re talking! guess i had to pick my jaw off the floor too XDD. btw, also loved the 1st kiss anim, it was beautiful! the beach games and drunk B were too much, man, i laughed my ass off so hard there were tears and it almost hurt XDD. and then.. yeah, i laughed less. but the 3 way bonding was great. also the pool lesson was awesome. i noticed you had woven a lot more seriousness into the story, introspection, drama, heartwringing situations. however… nothing could have prepared me for the last last part… 0_o … i’m still reeling. me too, i’m still standing out there, gaping. soo glad they went for this lesson omfg. still, really looking for the next chapter, just to know how they fare…
EDIT: y’know.. what i really like with this story is the feeling of being one of the guys, sitting there listening to them. to their daily hilarious chitchat about everything and nothing, banter, messing with each other… to such extent, i think i’ve never seen that, not even in fanfiction. i wrote sth in that direction once but it was all imagination… to any dude it’s just what you live - for me it’s so detailed i appreciate cause yeah.. fat chance i’ll ever experience it ~
hmm totally offtopic but no idea how to msg you otherwise: do you actually do steam? i don’t have paypal and i dislike them in general, and also their interface/page when you’re not supposed to need an account… half of the time (well, in the only shop where i needed stuff i didn’t wanna renounce to and had to pay thru paypal), the UI tried to “force” you to open an account, refusing to show the normal page where you could pay as a non-customer and showing you only the register page… sometimes for hours/days in a row until they “fixed” it. also i like having my stuff together in my steam library, because the only games i download from itch are the free and demo ones, due to the paypal issue, so no point getting the itch client just for demos and minigames i’ll delete a few hrs later…
still in the middle of playing, wanted to give some feedback tho.
first: AWE-SOME! first time i see a 3d VN that doesn't make me cringe. i love VN, i love 3d - and i love yaoi/BL/MM. but up to now i never stumbled on a good 3d VN, ESPECIALLY not a MM one...
your renders are great, and there's such a sheer number of them, like wow, new set of scenes all the time for every occasion. kudos on the amazing amount of work behind that. the characters are well done, and Zack is hawt AF. excellent posing/expressions/scenes setup too. i like that you use full renders for your scenes, and not VN style just a BG and sprites. and the animated scenes (2 images? i cheated and checked the folder... now i can have my own private 2-image slideshows lol), hmmmm. yesss. yup, i mean those scenes XD. it's fun too to see their clothes melting into nothing when they strip.
language is real, i appreciate, and those two are hilarious, i lmao'd a couple of times real loud ^^
good idea with the topics that can be unlocked for conversation.
there's a good balance of earnest stuff, slice of life etc, humor, hawt scenes (even if up to now it was solos, it was sensual and amazingly done. ok, said as a 3d dude lover but still... :D), and the story flows nicely. there's a lot of feeling there, and i can see why people identify with/understand Zack (i would too if i was a guy into dudes, which i sadly am only in my fantasy :/). and to see him slowly falling for Braden, more and more, emotionally and physically, while trying to respect him and not risk/fuck up their friendship - the gay man's balancing act...
Z & B not being stereotypes, i like that too, cause there are as many nuances of colors in the rainbow spectrum as there are individuals, and not all shine bright and flamboyant, but every single one is beautiful.
i'm not judging/commenting on where the story goes, where thru and who does what and why, or if drama here/there needs be or not - it's your story, your characters, and up to now, i like it. ^^ (atm i'm watching Zack sitting on a bench asking himself why he's doing psy as a major).
i don't mind the slow burner, it makes the wait worth it, if it comes too early/easy, there's like a disappointing moment just after... and geez please to those who expect easy porn, those sparse but well made solo scenes just at the right moment have riled me up more than some hardcore scenes in other VN. like when you go wtf watching a porny pic... instead of yum ~
the interface is slight, which i appreciate, it doesn't take unnecessary space and frills for nothing, but looks design and fitting all the same. (1 only thing, that you might even have fixed by now because it's a flaw: the speaker's name without background, unlike the text = not good, barely readable and just off design-wise, should be made like the text, like a tab over the text field. also the skip etc texts need a BG, they're barely visible).
the idea of giving them objects is awesome too and the objects are nicely rendered - tho there again, white square frame = meh, could be even more awesome with a colored BG + rounded frame, or as transparent png..
finally, did i mention this whole game is awesome? :D
so, looking forward to the rest of "my" game and possible updates!
thanks for creating and sharing this adventure with us ^^ - and proving that yes, 3d in VN has a future, and even a present!
more funny than minus:
- Zack describes Braden in the beginning as a hairless twink... but B's legs are freaking HAIRY! 0_o
- they must be starving on a harsh diet, cause when they go to the cafeteria, no food no drinks! NEVER! XD
EDIT: i saw you mentioned sound and license in another comment... doesn't Incompetech give away music for very cheap or even free?
yay for the sequel! looking forward to it! ^^
hmm, i played yags already, and while i'm not totally finished with all routes, i did finish (all of) jake's... i think. so, is there any need to download this updated version? did i miss something with jake? or is it just better to have the latest version anyways?
wow.. you're here with SL! how could i miss this? lucky there's yaoiRecs :D
been ages since we "met" on DA, then i checked the lemmasoft page a coupla times.. glad you're on itch and funded! gonna play the demo, really looked forward to this for a long time, YAY! btw, are you gonna stay on itch only or try to get this on steam?
EDIT: now i've played the demo.. omgomgomg, it's even better than i thought! i knew it would be awesome from what i saw on lemmasoft.. but still, the demo blew my mind! can't wait until it comes out (hope you guys are all well btw, in these times...). this game is in my top 5 of best VN ever!
omg... i've just been playing for a "few" hours... still exploring my 1st route - Razix - and i'm so in love with this game! it managed to do what neither fav series nor other games nor 3d drawing managed lately: totally get me out of time & space (no pun intended), this is the kind of game where you suddenly realize night has fallen without you noticing, you have no idea what time it is, and your stomach is growling because you probably skipped a meal... usually i can't even watch an episode without getting hyper and doing 3-4 other things in-between, but here i was caught for hours in a row, so cool! i could forget all the many sad and stressful things that have been dragging me down all those last months, particularly the last (like the rest of the planet...) and totally stop THINKING. i really needed that! thank you!
the design of the backgrounds is awesome! as are the interface bits or the map. the characters are nicely done too, with and particularly... without clothes on, lol. i like what i've seen from their personalities, they complement each other well. the overall plot is thrilling and very packing. poor Yoshi really needed to have this *thing* happen so he could meet them. i can't say much about routes since i'm still playing the 1st one, but i have fun interacting with my chosen mate and the rest... the hawt parts are just great, they come at the right moment, early enough but not immediately, and the bods of Yosh/the hunk i've picked were nice eye candy <3
and last BUT not least, actually it's what i like over all, is the SOUND. i think it's what helped plunge me into the zone somehow, i could listen to it for hours, even without the game! it's hypnotic. and i'm the type who usually lowers down the sound in VN to a murmur or even switches it off when it's to not my taste. but here, i wish i had this as a track to listen to...
all in all, it's a scifi VN and it makes honor to the genre - i really feel in space somehow ^^
a huge bravo to all who co-created this fabulous game! it's been offered to top it all, but it's worth a lot, it's been made very well.
i don't do patreon (a pain with a d-card!), and right now i'm absolutely, really broke and can't even go out to recharge my d-card, prolly not for months.. the way things look atm :( - but i won't forget you, at some point i'll be able to somehow drop what you deserve in here or so...
EDIT: aaah, checking on eeron i realized the sountrack CAN actually be bought.. magic! ^__^ (hopefully still in a few months)
