Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This was a very well thought out interactive fiction; I was drawn in immediately. I am sorry to say that I cannot rate it (or the sequel) because of the second half (I only got through one ending after reading the comments that there are no truly happy endings and only one "easter egg" that isn't violent. I think this first one (as well as the sequel) should contain a warning that it may be triggering for those with depression, agoraphobia, ocd, and the like--before someone gets hooked; the writing is so good that even after finding out most of the endings were violent, I couldn't "put it down" so-to-speak. It took me a few days to climb out of my depression just to be able to write this. I don't think it's trash in the least; I just think it needs a warning from the beginning.

Thanks for commenting. It did actually cross my mind that some people could be sensitive to the content, but since it's fiction and not based on a true story, I didn't really think that it was that powerful. The reviews have been all over the place, so I didn't think that I really even did that good of a job.

In fact, I thought that it might actually help people who had similar struggles as Kimiko. I think that an ending that was truly happy would betray the original storyline, but I offered the Easter egg so that people could get some closure for all of the characters and see that regardless of what happens, the affairs will always be settled in one way or another.

In western culture, we've actually been conditioned to happy endings. I'll go ahead and add something to the description as a warning. Thanks for requesting that!

Sorry about that. :3
I never really thought it would be such a requested feature since the game was only about thirty minutes long, but a mom e-mailed me saying that she gets constantly interrupted, and only has about 5-10 minutes at a time to play something, so for people like her, it makes a difference.

I did put it into the sequel. :D

Stop complaining about the dialogue. It's a visual novel, like it says in the description. If, you don't like visual novels then why play one? Don't give me the excuse that you didn't know, either. If you read the description then you would have known.

I liked the game a lot. Some things could have been done before, though. Transitioning music could have been done better. It actually would have been nice if there was just silence in some parts. There could have been a few more choices other then just two. Doesn't have to be a lot of choices just enough to space them mostly evenly throughout the game. I love the story, though.

Thanks for your support. I didn't really think about adding more than two options for each choice, but I will consider it next time.
