Rated 4 / 5 stars

I really like the game and the eerie story behind it and the root this series took. My problem now is that I can't get passed when the rapist breaks the glass and the shattering screen effect. It freezes right at that moment for some reason and it would refresh the page. After a while, I would get a page saying that it won't try to refresh anymore times. I used to be able to play it fine in the past but now I can't due to this.

Hmm... I just tried it and it worked fine for me. Try using a different browser. You could also try deleting your history. Mochimedia cancelled support for live updates, so that may have something to do with it. PM me if you have any other issues.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

If you do make another game with completely different themes, it should be called "Somewhere Safe"

On another note, holy cow! I . . . I was not expecting this. It's uh . . . it's emotional alright. I thoroughly enjoyed it, enough to get all the endings including the easter egg. It's sad; no matter how you looking at it, the one who suffers in the end is the child. Yet at the same time, what alternative did you have? Not give birth? Unconscionable. It's a story about hoping for the best and realizing that sometimes just hoping isn't enough. Sometimes you do everything right and bad things still happen.

Please release the soundtrack or the names of them if they are from different sources! I must EXPRESS MY FEELS BY LISTENING TO THEM FOR HOURS!

Oh, haha. Thanks for your support. Yes, you understood what I was trying to do with the game. The soundtracks are by Kannaduki.

However, I have cherry-picked songs from all of her albums, so it would be hard to find a soundtrack. I will ask her what she thinks about releasing a soundtrack from the tracks that I picked.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Wow, this turned out to be unexpectedly dark. The Easter egg made me laugh though.

I like how there were no happy endings, only realistic ones. However I felt that the choices you make in the story really don't connect with the result (I got the "good" ending after trying intentionally to be as mean as possible to Kazumi).

Lastly, the police lady looks too young lol.

Thanks for leaving a comment.

There are young police women out there! :D

Yeah, being mean was kind of the point. Sometimes being nice doesn't get you anywhere, even with your kids. Rule with fear! ;P


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I'm ntreally into graphic novels, but this is really really good. I just don't get why ending number 5 is the best. I guess it's because it is the best for Kimiko and it minimize the sadness for the characters, but I'm really not sure about it. My personal best is actually number 2 .

***SPOILER***(sure, Kazumi isn't going to be normal but at least she gets to grow up in a controlled environment and her parents don't just let her go downhill. Also, Kimiko is kind of an horrible person in Ending 5)***SPOILER ENDS***

I also don't know what to get out of the final easter egg. So, that half star is missing because I'm a little confused, sorry for that!

Oh, haha. It's okay. A lot of people were confused about it. It's meant to be left up to your interpretation, but people familiar with limbo, retribution, etc mostly understood it.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

It was SO negative, lmao! but it was good either way.

My favorite ending when everyone is happy but at the end Kazumi draws that F'd up picture. I think that was the best ending only because She might change when she gets older or something, so that was a positive cliff hanger : ).

It wasn't cheesy at all either. Great characters, music, and my all time favorite is Naoki and Aya : )

When's the next one!? I'm hoping you can make a romantic dating one about a kid in high school playing for a specific team... that would be so cool!

LOL. Thanks for playing both games. Actually my next game is going to be really different and there won't be another Nowhere Safe. Add me as a friend to follow me on newgrounds for updates.
