- Dialogue Text showing up as white instead of black.
- Game Crashing at the beginning (make sure you're allowing flash to save data locally)
- Game freezing during play (try clicking the show/hide button on the top right of the dialogue box, or one of the black checkpoint buttons at the bottom of the dialogue box, or reloading the AutoSave)

How to allow file storage: Right click the game, select settings, click the folder and make sure you have it set to allow local file storage. If you're crashing at the start this is probably the cause.

I cannot express how much I love this. The effort alone is more than enough to make me like it, but not only is love attention put into it; the art style is amazing and incredibly well done, not filling into the lazy stereotype I usually find in this visual novel genre. Particularly those geared more toward explicitly adult themes.

I'm someone who adores a buttload of dialogue, and even though this is fairly sparing in that department the characters and situations I felt were gotten across very well, melding the art with the writing even with the simple expression changes in the conversational sections.

I can honestly say that I haven't found anything that made me want to support the Makers' Patreon more than this right here, were I not already pinching pennies myself I would absolutely be doing everything I could to make it so these artists could do this full time.

So, in short Thank you Dusky Hallows Studio for giving us this, particularly as generously as you have been. You're amazing, and I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

well done! excellent artwork. love going back to the gallery.

i agree with lucabtje's suggestion, "Only thing I like to see added is a button to skip dialogue that you've read before"

keep up the great work!

Is the gallery supposed to be full? I'm trying to figure out if I've somehow missed a page and a half worth of images.

DuskyHallows responds:

There's 37 entries to the gallery you can unlock in this build. The counter underneath the gallery will let you know how many works you've unlocked.

God, this is well made. I can tell that a lot of hard work and effort has been put into, and it saddens me to see people rating it with 0 stars because of the technical issues they're experiencing. Only thing I like to see added is a button to skip dialogue that you've read before. Besides that; absolutely brilliant! Well deserved 5 stars
