again, there is a guide included inside, but contact me on deviant art if you are stuck.


EDIT: Alot of you are complaining about the HP grinding, so here's a cheat code to unlock all 3 weapons so that you can see all the dialogue options without dying : gottastabthemall

EDIT: 05/15/2014

It seems quite a bit of you are stuck on how to get the endings....so here is a breif walktrough.

Duke: To get his Insomnia Ending, make sure to save up HP and buy the 270 hp blue hilted sword. then when the option comes up, choose stab.

White: To get his Insomnia Ending, make sure to save up HP and buy the 270 hp PURPLE HILTED sowrd. Then when the option comes up, choose stab and let him go.

Joker : To get his Insomnia ENding, make sure to buy the red square thingy that cost 270 hp, then when the option comes, choose don't stab, don't stay. that should give you the true ending. choosing stay gives you the insomnia ending

the cheats for each character are in White's Insomnia ending. Duke's Insomnia ending, and the one true ending.

Hope that cleared things up a bit.

I would also like to say, your art style is beautiful like not the beautiful you usually see in dating sims and it just fits your stories? It's not anime-ish or amazingly beautiful but its so beautiful and fitting in it's own way and I adore it

This is a great game! It's my first time to play a sim-dating game. Lol. I'm actually glad that I was able to discover and play this game, thanks to someone who suggested this to me. I absolutely love the whole story!!! The ending was bittersweet (almost shed a tear tho), but I love it and I'm satisfied with it.

I always adored this game. It was too hard for actual gameplay, but I appreciated that it tried to incorporate a challenging survival dynamic. The game may seem truly strange and bizarre at first, but I loved the cast of characters all throughout, and the storyline revealed at the ending was exquisite and realistic. I felt it gave the game a lot of strength and grounding. I am amazed that one person was able to make this. Everything about it is so beautiful. I hope that the artist/author/developer made more games that built off of how well this was done.

I've played this game several times, but the true ending never fails to bring a tear to my eye. The art is uniquely beautiful, the story is creative, and there isn't anything of note that I don't like about this game.

(spoilers in this comment)

I got kind of annoyed in the intro when I chose to Fight the monster and automatically "died". I didn't know it was the type of game where that would happen. I wish there was at least some description of what happened. It is kind of annoying to see "You died, game over" without any indication or hint about which option I should choose.

I think it is also weird that in the library (?) there is a "guide" for the game and you basically have to read it in order to not be killed and have to start over. I read it and I still died, it said not to enter the dining room or sitting room...how am I supposed to know where those places are just by looking at the door?

Also, I read the guide in the game (NOT the NG description though) and decided to go for the Duke's Insomnia Ending first...I did not know that you needed to get the 270HP sword before finishing their dialogue path so I ended up with the Nightmare ending. Which really annoyed me. I think the guide should have had that in it.

Also abstract nonsense...is that a reference to the Vocaloid song?! XD

I loved all of the routes and the whole story...during the true end I was crying and a tear dripped onto my laptop trackpad. I loved the themes in it and all the true things that it said. If

The graphics, pretty polished. Actually I admit I didn't focus much on them since every room in the house looked very same-y. I was more focused on being annoyed that I had to restart the game and reading the dialogue.

I think this is a great visual novel, only problem is the Nightmare monsters making you restart is kind of annoying. And the guide doesn't tell you you have to get the 270HP items before advancing the dialogue to the end. I know it's in the description, but I didn't read that since I thought it would have spoilers.
