Aww, thanks, yohanlove! Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

We don't have a release date pinned down just yet, but we are hoping to release beta ver. 2 of the demo by late summer to early fall. We're particularly active on our tumblr (well, when we aren't working ourselves to the bone on the game!), but we'll make important announcements on all our social media.

In the meantime, I hope you'll continue to support us in love and patience as we do our best to make this game better and better. We honestly can't wait to show everyone just what we have in store! If you have any other questions or comments, please do let us know. It might take us a little while to get to it, but we really do enjoy hearing from everyone.

Hmm...I find that a lot of our fans enjoy our sweet and romantic Valentine specials. I recommend starting with War: Valentine Edition listed at the top there. Other than that, you can find the full list of our games here. (The ones farther down the list were made when we were just starting out, so art-wise, you'll notice a definite improvement in our more recent games!)

We've been working day and night on refining the full version of Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces). With all the fun surprises we have planned, that will likely overshoot 2017, but we are hoping to get out beta ver. 2 of the demo you just played within this year - around late summer to early fall. If you care to share what you think about the new and improved one then, you know that we'd love to hear from you! We're always curious to know what players think of all our hard work.

Hi, delanie_balanay. Glad to hear you're enjoying it!

The main guy of Don't Take This Risk is indeed in Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces)...but I can't tell you whether it's Arsenik. He might very well be, but you'll have to wait and find out when you play the full game. In the meantime, you're absolutely welcome to theorize and guess who he may or may not be! I'd actually love to hear who you think he is, if you care to share your thoughts.

Thanks for commenting, delanie_balanay, and if you have any other questions or feedback, feel free to let us know.  Have an amazing rest of the week!

Hi, Artemis_Ameretsu! There's actually no particular ending from being a jerk, so you can rest easy and continue treating him nicely. Being mean mostly just affects your interaction with him. As a Valentine special, this game really only has happy endings. Though, someone once mentioned that they wished there was an option to reject the guys, so when I get around to remaking it (likely after I finish Beauty and the War), I'll likely include that choice, as well as an appropriate ending to go with it.

Thanks, honeydragon! Glad to hear you enjoyed the game. I also hope you look forward to getting to know them in their original homeworld of Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces).

Thanks, ahartwoods! We're absolutely driven to do our best on the full version of the game. Feel free to follow us on tumblr (or any of other social media above) if you'd like more updates. A nd if you have any other comments or questions, don't hesitate to let us know.

Hi, Nana_Xion! Aww, thanks. We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed it - and the little deer. Everyone's feedback to this beta demo is helping us know what we're doing right, so we honestly appreciate hearing from you. I hope you look forward to the final release! And if you have any theories on who you think the main guy of Don't Take This Risk is in Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces), feel free to share.

Thanks, BreD! Glad to hear you enjoyed it. This was the beta demo, so you can expect for things to get prettier and more sophisticated in the full release. Please do look forward to it! And thanks for taking the time to let us know what you think.

Hello, xeb!

I really want to thank you for all your kind words. It means a lot to hear all that. It's honestly very encouraging. Before, I was asking about her feelings on horror/dark romance because I was planning to include a mature filter for the…more intense elements, so I was gauging just how much should be concealed when it's on. (Though, it still won't exceed a PG-13 rating!)

I'm glad to hear you're looking forward to the final product. We're still working hard on it! When the time comes and you do decide to play every path, I'd love to hear what you think.

Thanks for taking the time to comment with your thoughts, xeb.

Really appreciate the kind words, dslerner! Oh, and if you're wondering how to unlock the secret character route...simply play through all the dates and then choose to end the date. But the catch is, you have to go through all the dates in a single playthrough. If you quit the game mid-way, it won't count and you'll have to do them again.

Hope that helps! Thanks for playing my games and taking the time to comment.

I'm happy to hear it, dslerner. (I'm kind of curious what Madlib words you chose, if you wouldn't mind sharing!)

Aww, thank you so much, Artemis_Ameretsu. Your support really means a lot to us! Every little bit helps us with the development of this game. We'll do our best! If you have any other feedback or questions, feel free to let us know.

Thanks, dslerner! Glad to hear it. As for the Vi's "horse challenge"...did you really want to see how that went? Normally, I was going to hand-wave the treatment scene, but I don't mind including it if you want to see the horse (or get to know that particular Vi?).

I'm glad you're enjoying the game so far - and the little deer! He loves you, too.

Ooh, Inuyasha! It's been a while since I saw that. Thanks for the suggestion, ocupers. I already have a voice for Wind in mind, which may or may not fall in line with Sesshomaru's voice. You'll have to find out! Hopefully, you'll consider it heartstopping either way.

Aww, thanks, momo-chan! Support like this is really encouraging.

Hi, momo-chan. I'm so happy to hear you're looking forward to it! I'm aiming for a 2017 release, but feel free to follow me on tumblr for updates and other fun goodies. And if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Merry Christmas!

Hi, Feat_Yuzuki! We're actually looking into that right now, so it's a very distinct possibility.

We're glad you're looking forward to the full release! If you're looking for updates and if you haven't done this already, feel free to follow us on tumblr. My activity may be a bit sporadic over the holidays, but if you have any questions or feedback, I'll get to it as soon as I can. You can also leave a comment here or e-mail us at:

Merry Christmas!

Hello, Konoi!

Oh, thank you so much for playing the game and commenting with your thoughts, even to the point of answering all the questions on lemmasoft. It's really helpful for me.

When the game's finished, I'll definitely whip up a hint guide or a walkthrough - depending on how difficult people find it. As for Viktor being the secret character or not...he may be! Feel free to keep aiming for him and find out, if you like. You can get courted by more than one bachelor, and if you want to break up with someone and go out with another guy, you can. (Though, the latter may be harder for some characters than others, given their standing and/or personality as a whole. Where you are in the story will make a huge difference, too.)

I'm happy you're enjoying the game. Please do continue to look forward to its full release!

Hello, SweetChiel! It's so great to hear from you again. I've already told you this on Facebook, but your review really made me happy. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Ooh, well, I should mention that getting one of the guys (like Chase or Arsenik) to block the sight of the execution doesn't quite indicate whether you're on his "route." Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces) is part-visual novel and part-fantasy simulation, so I was letting the characters do whatever they normally would have done. Based off his personality and schedule, Viktor simply wouldn't be there at the same time as you and Onyx. (Though, do keep in mind that even though the cast of X Playing Pieces is quite vast, some men simply won't be obtainable!)

Ah, and yes, I did program it myself. I get the feeling there's still a bug lurking around somewhere, but I'll have to test it thoroughly before release to squash them all!

I'm aiming for a 2017 release (keep your fingers crossed!). I post most of my updates on tumblr and sometimes lemmasoft. If you've already liked my facebook page, you should see updates here and there as well. (Probably more once the holidays are over!)

Thanks again for taking the time to comment with your thoughts! I'm thrilled you're enjoying it so far.

Oh, and if the clans are confusing at all, here's a small guide that might help. If you have any questions or any other feedback, feel free to let me know!

Merry Christmas!

Hi, Tamy! Thanks, we're happy to hear that. We're aiming for a 2017 release! Feel free to follow us on our social media if you'd like updates.

Merry Christmas!

Hello, derpingbanana! We're aiming for a 2017 release. When we've set a hard release date, I'll announce it one of our social media like tumblr, so feel free to follow us if you want updates.

I used Ren'py. Are you thinking of making a game yourself?

Hi, QueenElizabethJr! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it. I'm actually rather curious about what your theories, if you care to share them!

Thanks for playing and taking the time to comment with your thoughts.

Hello, 氷菓! Thanks for playing the game and taking the time to comment with your thoughts. I'm glad to hear you're excited for the full version! I already can't wait for everyone to find out what it is the characters are hiding.

If you have any feedback or questions, feel free to let me know.

Hi, Meowtha! Thanks for checking out both my games. I'm glad to hear you liked them!

Now, the main guy of Don't Take This Risk could be one of the hidden characters or you may have already been introduced to him. Not to worry - in the full version, you will definitely know which one is him. (But if I somehow wasn't as clear as I thought I was, just send me a message! I'll clear things up straightaway.)

If you have any other questions or feedback, feel free to let me know.

Those are good ideas! Though...if you watch the characters, you'll actually notice their shoulders are already moving when they breathe and their eyes are blinking. But I'm glad to hear that's something you already like.

As for the angsty stuff, there are certain paths that will lead to that! But out of all the dialogue options, I think you might able to tell which one leads to darker things.

(Also, you have a puppy? Aww, I bet he's cute.)

Hello, KawaiiGameBee! I'm happy to help.

Here's how you download and play it:

1) Click on the download button.

2) Click on the downloaded file. (You may need to double-click it.)

3) Extract the files. (You will need a zip extractor such as WinZip or 7-zip.)

4) Click on the extracted folder. It should be called something like "Don't_Take_This_Risk-1.0-all."

5) Click on "Don't_Take_This_Risk.exe."

6) When the game opens up, click to continue.

7) Click on "Pick Up."

In general, you click to make choices and continue the dialogue. You can also hold the 'ctrl' key to skip dialogue you have already seen.


If you have a Mac and the OS Sierra, you may need to do the following:

1) Right click on the game itself and click "Show Contents."

2) From there, go to the OS Sierra folder and click on the exec file of the game.

3) You may have to go to Security in the System Preferences to be able to open it. The Exec file will go through the Terminal process. It will take some time before the game officially opens.

If you run into any trouble or have any other questions, just let me know.

Hello, BelleAgain! Let's see what I can do.

Please try the following:

1) Right click on the game itself and click "Show Contents."

2) From there, go to the OS Sierra folder and click on the exec file of the game.

3) You may have to go to Security in the System Preferences to be able to open it. The Exec file will go through the Terminal process. It will take some time before the game officially opens.

If this doesn't work, it may be that your antivirus software is trying to delete the game. If so, I would recommend adding it to your antivirus software's list of exclusions or disabling it while extracting the .zip file (and then running the exe).

Please let me know if any of this works for you!

Hi, AnnasGaming.

If emzcat's suggestion doesn't work, it may be your antivirus software trying to delete the game. I would recommend adding it to your antivirus software's list of exclusions or disabling it while extracting the .zip file (and then running the exe). Please let me know if it works for you!

Hi, nerdpremise111!

I've reuploaded the game, so if you can, please let me know if it the download link works for you. Here's an alternative download link, too.

Hello, Odin_Arr0w! I'm delighted to hear it.

I actually do have plans for turning this into an app, so please do look forward to it. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Hello again, pazzamelia!

All right, I finally got to the root of the problem thanks to yawarahayashi. It's basically the OS Sierra that's causing the issue. This is how to make it run:

1) Right click on the game itself and click "Show Contents."

2) From there, go to the OS Sierra folder and click on the exec file of the game.

3) You may have to go to Security in the System Preferences to be able to open it. The Exec file will go through the Terminal process. It will take some time before the game officially opens.


Please do let me know if this works for you!

Hi, Princecal! Thank you so much. Hearing that really means a lot to us. I hope you look forward to our future games! (Beauty and the War in particular - the main guy from this game will be in it.)

Hi, Merbax!

Thanks, I'm glad to hear it. If you're interested in the character, please do keep an eye out for our next project, Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces). He'll be in it.

My apologies for the delay. It's the holidays!

That said...hmm, are you using Windows or a Mac?

I'm glad you interested in him! If you want to learn more about him, please do keep an eye out for our next project: Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces). He'll be in it.

I already e-mailed you my response, but I just want to repeat that I really enjoyed it! If you finish the sequel, I hope I get a chance to read that one, too. Thank you again for showing me your amazing fanfic.
