Good made, but why did the history teacher at the beginning never see a polaroid camera? I mean: He's a history teacher.

StudioMadeleineChai responds:

Hi Utopia! Thank you for playing our game ^_^ I'm not the writer, but I can try to answer your question!

The handsome guy at the start is a history student who's somewhat interested in photography, and the story is set approximately in the 2040s. If I had to guess, he probably acquired the hobby recently and never got the chance to visit a photography museum :)

nice looking game

I don't personally like visual novels but I can tell when something's done with passion. Good job.

StudioMadeleineChai responds:

I'll be sure to pass along your compliments to the team :D
