  1. Ok I was wrong. This MC is one of the biggest derps I’ve ever come across reading AVNs. I hate him. I had to fast forward through this beautiful game because reading the MC’s dialog is like listening to nails on a chalk board. It’s impossible for me to suspend believe and enjoy the story as the MC. Every single word out of his mouth demonstrates one of the following:

    1 – MC is a constantly embarrassed pathetic loser that no one likes who has no confidence, does everything wrong and never knows what is going on around him. Even after he’s banging chicks all over campus.
    2 – MC is incapable of understanding or speaking English. Mainly he speaks using words like “But!? What? Huh? I don’t understand? Are you serious? Really?”. MC also loves to answer a question with a question.
    3 – MC is one of the stupidest people alive and cannot understand sarcasm, sexual innuendo or humor. Example: “Girl: I really want you to hammer me tonight. MC: I don’t even own a hammer! Should I go and buy one?! What are we going to be hammering?”
    4 – MC is deserves sympathy because it’s not my fault! Feel sorry for me!
    5 – MC would rather have pointless and moronic conversations in his head rather than pay attention to the blowjob he’s currently receiving.

    Let’s look at his conversation with Monica the photography teacher in her office. Even after she tells him TWICE to just call her Monica, not Ms. KAPOOR, mom, mistress or Miss Monica he continues on to get it wrong ELEVEN TIMES.
    – – – – –
    MC: Yes, Miss… Professor… Ms. KAPOOR
    Prof: Please. We’re both adults here. Call me MONICA.
    MC: Yes, Mom… I mean, Mom-ica… MONICA! I mean MONICA.
    Prof: For now… Just MONICA will suffice.
    MC: Yes, Miss- I mean, MONICA. Just… Monica.
    MC: Yes Mi- MONICA. I promise…
    MC: Sorry, mom. I mean MONICA.
    MC: Thank you, Miss… Mistress… I mean, MONICA.
    MC: Yes, Miss MONICA.
    MC: I mean… just MONICA. I mean, yes. MONICA.
    MC: Yes Miss MONICA… Anything you say, Miss.
    MC: Yes, mom- I mean, Miss. I mean, MONICA.
    MC: Thank you, Miss MONICA.
    MC: See you then, Miss MONICA.

    Now let’s look at his self deprecating behavior. Kevon and MC talking about TapThat. MC sure loves saying “What if” in a negative way.
    – – – – –
    MC: What if I don’t match with anyone?
    MC: What if… I do get a match?
    MC: (I’m not sure what would be worse… Not getting any matches or actually getting a match and having to go through with it.)
    MC: I mean… What if I do get a match? What then?
    MC: What if I totally fuck it up?
    MC: That’s the part I’m worried about.
    MC: I wouldn’t even know what to say.
    MC: What if she thinks I’m boring?

    I can’t fathom why a developer would make this gorgeously animated and rendered game only to destroy it with this intolerable writing. I just can’t understand it.

  2. Can you at least give us an expectant date for the next chapter or at least have the decency to tell us that there will no longer be any updates to the story.!!

  3. It’s truly a shame how good ‘A Shot in the Dark’ is. If you invest in ViM for THIS game, save your money. Visual Novels take a lot of time and work. That being said, seeing more posts about their other projects than this game on their Patreon and 30% progress for CH.4 in the last 6 months, it looks like this game isn’t a priority.

    1. what on earth are you talking about? chapter 3 only dropped in December, 2023. you know, 2 months ago? 6 months on chapter 4? your math is seriously messed up. try actually looking at the patreon page and you’ll see the progress of chapter 4. while they may have been working on parts of it for the last few months, it was after the similar parts of 3 were completed, while the more intensive processes were being done on 3. renders and animations take time. ranting here about it, where dev likely doesn’t even see it, is wasted time. and it’s wrong, anyway.

  4. Honestly, pretty underrated. A lot of potential with this one and in terms of writing quality, blows their other game completely out of the water, while even sharing some of the same kinks. For an AVN the women are shockingly written quite well and it is worth a couple replays even at this point to get to know them. I also really appreciate the game being a bit more grounded in reality and I don’t mind the lack of a brain dead blow up doll harem. Sometimes a game can be just as fun getting to go back vicariously, and wonder if I had picked this girl instead and getting a quality character arc/connection out of it as well.

    This game is pretty anti-incel, so I can see why it rubs some guys the wrong way though. Feelings, respect, and fidelity, pretty scary mate. One of the few games I’ve played, on here, I would even come close to describe as female-friendly, so there is that if it would apply to you.

  5. I downloaded the latest update 0.25 but I was unable to transfer my previous loads to continue the game. Can you give me some suggestions?

  6. Did not see my first comment post so if it shows twice I apologize

    Downloaded the windows zip from Mega. Defender found and deleted this TROJAN

    Trojan:Script/Wacatac.B!ml

  7. Je ne me suis pas fier aux commentaires pour l essayer.
    j ai bien aimé même si des fois, j aurais aimer peut etre forcer certaines interactions dans l esprit du personnage.
    Comme embrasser maladroitement sa tante pendant quelle l embrasse sur la joue
    sinon deux chapitres depuis le post, je regrette que cela puisse durer longtemps avant la fin, j aimerais payer le jeu au complet d un coup… mais c est ainsi
    merci pour ce travail, vivement la suite !

  8. Great game! Similar to Being a Dik in a good way and it has its own identity. The game is just in the second chapter so there really isn’t much progress with the characters but based on what I’ve seen, it seems all the girls have some depth to them and you will get the chance to know them better and even influence them based on your relationship with them. They aren’t just pretty faces and sexy bodies. I also like that you can decide which girls to date and get involved with and even if you have gotten all the points with that girl, you can still decide whether go through with her romance path or just be friends at a certain point (I say this because there are some games in which if you are nice and kind with the girls, you end up romancing them even though that was not your intention and you really aren’t given the choice not do it, like if you don’t like a girl you have to be a jerk with her). It is true that in this game, at least for now, you can’t romance every girl. There are occasions in which you will have to decide between two girls and well, I personally don’t have a problem with that. It adds replayability and some type of realism to the game. Can’t expect to have them all, can you? I don’t tend to replay these games/VNs but I did with this one since it’s short as of now and I was pleasantly surprised. I thought my first run would be the main one but after replaying the game three times, I realized other characters I had ignored and not picked were far more interesting and attractive to me. The MC can be a total loser sometimes, like, the thoughts he has can even be frustrating/annoying hahaha he can be very stupid but well, some guys are like that irl and it matches his personality and background so I accepted that after some time.

  9. Really good game! Both the story and the art (and the sexy scenes) are superb!

    A question: what is the “alternate script” mentioned in the options? A different font or what?
