There is a good friends ending!! ^^ 

Also the main character, Idril, and the love interest, Samson, are both asexual as well, and the farthest their route goes is a kiss on the cheek.

Thank you so much for taking the time to play my game! It means a lot to me that you enjoyed it. I'm so happy that you thought it was beautiful!! ^^ I really appreciate you taking the time to comment and let me know. 

Thank you for the heads up!

Awww!! <3 Thank you so so much for taking the time to play it and comment here! It really made my day to read this and know that you enjoyed it that much!!! ^^

I know I already replied to this on twitter, but I'm going to reply here as well in case anyone else has a similar question ^^

Nope! There's some swearing (which can be turned off in the settings menu), mild violence (nothing graphic), and a missable scene where a character smokes, but that's it.

(Linux version is also available for download)

I haven't gotten these errors before from anyone, so thank you for posting these. I will have to take a look and see what's going on.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this! I'm so happy that you enjoyed the game as much as you did. 

I just wanted to answer a few things you brought up about the stats and the routes. For anyone else that might be reading this comment, this might get spoilery as well. 

There are actually going to be direct sequels to this game at some point, and some of those stats that didn't have much of an effect on this current game are planned to carry over to the sequels and effect things there. 

The overall story for DFU 2 picks up the following week, and the end of DFU 3 is a 4th of July weekend, so the stats are going to have a lot of opportunities to shine. It's just an unfortunate planning part on my end that they just don't affect very much in this first game. 

And the same kinda goes for some of the route stuff you mentioned. While the sequels are still quite aways away, I already have quite a few scenes written that delve heavily into James' entitlement, Alexander's difference of life experience with Idril - as well as him getting over his ex and having confusing feelings about their situation after Idril kisses him, and... a lot of Brian's issues. Brian is... Well, he's a jerk, in the politest of terms, and his route isn't going to forget that. 

I have definitely been trying to acknowledge their issues in the sequels where the story has more room to explore them. 

I see what you mean with Vincent. That is probably due to some inexperience on my end when a lot of his stuff was worked on. I've already improved my skills a lot since DFU 1 came out, but I'll keep stuff like that in mind and make sure to keep improving for the next one to fix things like that. ^^

I'm really happy that you liked the Samson and OHWB routes. They're some of my favorite characters I've worked on, and I don't see a lot of people go for them nearly as much. 

I'm also glad you liked the 3d modeling! That's not something I really hear much of ^^; That's another thing I've been working on improving in between the games, and I'm quite excited about how things are looking for the sequels. 

Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to write this comment. I really truly appreciate you passing the game that much and I'm happy to get your feedback on it. Even though it won't be for a while still, I do hope that you'll give the sequels a chance when they come out. ^^

Thanks so much for playing DFU!! 

I actually found your YouTube videos sometime last weekend when I was googling something, and watched the three that were currently up. I really enjoyed watching them and I subscribed to the channel. :) I'm currently watching part 5 now. 

Thank you for giving my game a shot! It means a lot to me!

There is a plan to make more games in this series! ^^ However there isn't a set release date for that as of yet. I'm also currently involved in a different project series that will most likely release before the next DFU installment comes out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to play through this game and enjoying it! ^^ I really appreciate that! 

I totally understand!! No worries! ^^

I'm sorry, while the character has friendship options with female characters - there aren't any female romance options in this game. 
If you're looking for female romance options in the racial equality bundle, I did a search using the RandomBundleGame website that might be useful to you. ^^

I'm really glad that you enjoyed your time playing through DFU! Thank you so much for taking the time to play through it and letting me know about it!! ^^

Thank you for playing it and sharing this with me! ^^ I totally understand that Visual Novels and Otome Games aren't for everyone, but I'm really honored that you and the other members in your community have taken time out of their day to do videos likes these!

Thank you! I'm really happy that you feel that way about the game and the characters!! ^^ I look forward to releasing more future installments and projects and i hope that you enjoy them as well! :D

Thank you so much for sharing this with me! ^^ I really appreciate it and I enjoyed watching this video!!

I'm really happy that you took the time to play through and get the seven endings! Thank you so much and I'm glad that you had a nice time playing it ^^

Those mysterious happenings will be addressed later in the series, however there isn't a set release date for that as of yet. I'm also currently involved in a different project series that will most likely release before the next DFU installment comes out.

I hope you enjoy Make It Last as well! I really had a lot of fun working on that short spin off for a game jam. 

Thank you again! ^^

I've been seeing people use to browse all of the games from the bundle. You can sort through the games with filters or even have it pick a random game out of the bundle. It seems that you can filter the list down to any games that include an Android platform too!

Thanks for letting me know how you got the error! I don't currently have the game files on my current computer setup, but next time I hook up my external hard drive I'll look into it! ^^

You're welcome!! ^^ I personally used the black and white option back while I was developing the game, and I'm really glad to know that it helps others too! 

Thanks for playing the game!!! I hope you enjoy it ^^

Awww! Thank you so much! I really appreciate that you took the time to play it, as well as writing a comment here! It made my day ^^

Aww, thank you so much! That made my day! I really appreciate you playing through my entry and notifying me about this. ^^

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. That's a great suggestion, and something that we should definitely do. I will update the page to reflect that soon. 

I just wanted to let you know that I made a mistake with the CG guide that I wrote up for you, and it has to do with the two CGs that you were missing. I was accidentally referencing an older version of DFU without realizing it when I wrote up the guide, and since that version, I had made an update where the left & right CGs on the 3rd row (#5 & #6) switched places. I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't realize it sooner, and I'm so sorry if I inconvenienced you at all. I just fixed the guide and wanted to let you know as soon as I could.

I went ahead and wrote up a quick CG guide for you! It's divided into sections just like the CG gallery is in game, and it has a description on how to unlock every CG. 

Each description also links to a picture of the CG used for the preview in the CG gallery. This is just in case you need to visually compare the CGs in your gallery that you have/haven't unlocked with the descriptions in the guide. If you haven't unlocked the CG in the game yet, clicking the link for it in the guide will show you the CG.

You should've been able to unlock the bottom one on the left row (#7 on the CG guide for Vincent), if you unlocked the one right above it, the 3rd one on the left row (#5 on the CG guide for Vincent). I just did a fresh play through of Vincent's route going for the bottom left (#7) CG, as well as checking the code for unlocking that CG, and it unlocked in my copy. If you have trouble unlocking that CG after reading the guide and playing DFU again, let me know.  Edit: I was looking at an older version by accident. The CGs for #5 & #6 have switched places since that version. I'm sorry!

I hope this CG guide helps! Have fun with completing your set!^^

Aww, thank you so much for playing DFU! That made my day ^^

Aww, thanks! ^^

THANK YOU TOO ^^ That really means a lot to me <3
Can I share these on my twitter account, and if so, how can I credit you? These are absolutely so cute! 

Aww, that just seriously made my day!
Thank you so much for taking the time to make that!!! ^^ I really appreciate it.

Thanks for letting me know, I'll look into what's causing the error as soon as I can. ^^

I hope you enjoy it! ^^ To make things easier to read, I'm going to break up my answers to your questions with a "---"


Yes, we are going to make a second game in the series. We're planning on making 3 games in the DFU series.

When you finish the first game, it will ask you to make a completion save file. This save file can be transferred into future games to affect how the story continues in the series. If you do not have a completion save file, you will be able to start the next game by making some quick choices that determine what happened in a previous game.

Each DFU game will have their own contained storyline, as well as some arcs that will continue throughout all three games. Kinda like if you reading a trilogy of novels.


I do not have a detailed walkthrough completed at this time, but I have a general tips page on my tumblr that will give you a basic idea on how to end up on a character's route. You can find that here.

If you are looking for help with achievements, there's a page here that has each achievement listed and how you unlock it. If you haven't completed the game yet, there will be possible spoilers on that page.

If you need specific help, feel free to email me at destinyfailsus @ (remove the spaces) or messaging me on twitter @DestinyFailsUs. I'll reply as soon as I can ^^


When the game was released, I made some updates to fix things in the game. The version you downloaded should've been 1.0.2, which is the latest version of the game. That's why there's an error, there's nothing to update at the moment. :D

If I do fix anything else, you will be able to update it and play it via the Update button on the title screen. At the moment, I do not have any specific plans for an update.

If you were curious and wanted to see what was fixed in a previous update, or if I do update the game in the future, I post about what was changed in the game here.


Hopefully this answered some of your questions. :D

I hope you have an awesome weekend! ^^ Have fun playing Destiny Fails Us: A New Life ~ ^^

You can purchase the full game here or you can use the widget on the website here. After that, you'll be able to download the game for windows, mac, and linux. :)

The game released a little earlier this year. ^^
