  1. The “MacOS” upload is actually the 0.50 PC version. Can whoever is doing the uploads please upload the *real* MacOS version if it exists?… TIA

  2. Great game and not sure what else someone would want in this type game. Fantastic use of sounds…best I’ve heard in any game of this type. Visuals are top notch, great and interesting story. Well done game. First time I’ve played this one so pleasantly surprised.

  3. LoL, i’m not yet download this new version release but reading from the change log. mostly just useless stuff probably short gameplay for like over 7 months of waiting. better wait for next week, like something major already planned but dev still got something to do.

    1. All the games i download i keep on a separate disk until an update comes. Abandoned games i delete after i am certain the are abandoned. Either you have to much time on your hands to wait day after day on an update, or this is the only game you play. But in the end you don’t pay for them just like me, otherwise you wouldn’t be on this site. So what’s the point to get angry because you have to wait on a update for 10 months, the game is stored and cost nothing. People like you should wait until a game is completed, to avoid the stress, or pay the dev enough so that he can spend all his time on a game to satisfy your needs.

      1. or pay a fucking hooker, so she or them can satisfy your needs even better. there is no guarantee amateur game dev would work if you pay them even if you spend $5000 for them, you must be a retard to pay for a fucking game.

    2. I was on his Discord and man, he always comes up with excuses every month. I don’t know why this guy is still have some supporters lol but majority of them left due to very long update and delays with his excuses. I tried pissing them off the other day and one got defensive lol

    3. 11 months at max according to his discord group. He always comes up with excuses lol and I don’t even know why people on his discord are still hyped even after waiting for 11 months and even more hyped for this 20-minute update lol

  4. Real good game but this once a year update stuff is for the birds. Always an excuse on why things drag along.

  5. Dev note , April 12th

    Hi, everyone.

    In the last few weeks I’ve been having a health issue related to the long illness I had in February. A bonus one, if you will. Buy one, get one for free kind of deal. So most of my days were spent in bed or staring at the screen with zero creative energy. My patreon was never been about churning up content on a monthly basis, but it still feels weird to take you money when I’m not working. So I’ll pause the pledges for a month. The process should be rather straight-forward, your next billing cycle, whenever that is, will be skipped. And then the one after should resume as usual. From what I understand no new patrons can join in during this paused month.

    I feel good in the last couple of days, and I’m working today. So this situation should be only for a month, to make up for the lost time. I’ll report back next week to let you know if this have gone back to normal.

    That’s it for now. Stay safe, and thanks for the support.

      1. I haven’t checked in a while, tbh , I’ll check out their patreon and see whats up as its been a few months

      2. From what I saw, there isn’t much activity since then. Only 4 or so posts, there does seem to be progress, just not much. There may not be an update for a good while for this vn.
