YOOO! You should play this game with HEADPHONES!! i did, and at the end, i felt like he was right behind me! DAT WAS AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMME!!

i just have oooone tiny little prob. why is the ,music in the background so short, it replays often and it's a little distracting as i read. (im easily distracted, so this is a really some problem)

ANYWAYS! i love it. :D 5 stars!

The reason why the music is short in some parts is because we have to switch the music and the emotions often. There are about 90 scenes in the game, so if you read quickly, you may notice it changing more frequently.

I will try to design around this for next time!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

You need to reduce the lag on this game cause I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS GAME TO LOAD FOR HALF-AN-HOUR AND ITS ONLY 3/4 DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in the end it was a good game.

redpandagames responds:

Sorry! I will definitely work on reducing the file size next time! Thank you!

The story is good! It put my mind in a state that actually made me think that I was going through all this craziness! And it even made me happy to be an otaku with all these references to Japan and all that. But there are some things I'd like to suggest.

First, why not add some more animation into it to make things look better? The animations made some scenes look weird. Second, please add a back button for when I accidentally click. And of course, why not try adding a "save" feature so that I could get right back at the part of the story I was at if I close the browser or something. Also please consider trying to make the file smaller 'cause I had a hard time going through everything with such a big, slow file.

Other than that, I only saw some minor problems, but I can get around them. The story is awesome and full of suspense! Thumbs-up for you! :D

Thanks! I will take all of your suggestions. I'm already working on a back button, and saving and loading is pretty easy to implement, I guess.

I'll work on the file size, too. Maybe a 640x480 screen will help to get it down. I guess I could use less music, too.

I don't care what the other people think, I LIKE the reading! ^-^
This is actually my favourite kind of genre; psychological...ish xD It really shows the struggle that Kimiko goes through dealing with her mental illness. I was also pretty happy when her name was Kimiko, it's so similar to MY name, Kumiko! xD
I was really drawn into the story and I loved all the characters. Usually I would have taken away 1/2 a star because I got so annoyed whenever Kenta showed up but that's just my preference and it's not your fault ;3 The only complaint I've got is that there's little interaction. You can't really choose what she says but after all, this is a Visual Novel ;P The concept is beautiful and so are the drawings~! x3
You lost half a star because... IT'S TOO SHORT!!!!111 T^T Why you leave us with a cliffhanger, you're so mean! ;^; Just kidding ;P Can't wait for the next one!

Thanks so much for all of your comments! It's too short; I agree. I'll try and get the sequel finished as soon as I can.
