t14914.32020-10-26Regarding c6648.29, c6648.28Personally, I think my impression of Satoru would've been somewhat different in Kokoro's route, had I already known about his amnesia. It's been a

t14813.12020-10-03Regarding the addition of CRIwareYou recently linked some of Iwaihime's releases to CRIware. I don't think this technology can be considered an engine. To the best of my

t11606.202020-06-06Banned on SteamDoesn't change the fact that plenty of people who are interested in VNs will only notice them when they're on a mainstream platform such as Steam.
t13907.322020-05-26New type of censorship@31 Allowing literally any opinion to be expressed with absolutely no restrictions whatsoever doesn't strike me as a very sane way to run a community

t13290.142020-01-24AwesomeDid you actually read all of the revelation scenes? Because it doesn't sound like you did. Note that I'm still in the process of reading them myself

t13080.22019-10-29How many girl can Takuya romance?If you don't count Eriko, then I believe it's either 5 or 6. The last romance in the VN is so forced (even by the VN's already low standards) that it
t6248.32019-09-17Two requestsI'm not aware of it having ever been sold on PSN. Would be a rather strange decision, given that it's just an inferior version of Never7.
t5085.1282019-09-17I/O General Discussion ThreadTo be fair, the Defrag screen has various sections crossed out. Those signify scenes or parts of scenes that are still locked.
t5085.1262019-09-16I/O General Discussion ThreadLong story short, you can't read the final part of Route A (the 1.0 ending) before clearing Route D. What you got is the 0.1 ending, which happens

t12768.52019-08-26Resolution of the Unity portsSince nobody seems to disagree, I changed the question arcs' resolution accordingly.
t12768.42019-08-24Resolution of the Unity portsThat would be 640x480, then. Does anyone disagree with that?

t12613.232019-07-16Start the Engines!@18 While I agree with your argument, your examples aren't really the best. In-house engines that have official names like Malie and RScript can

t12157.42019-04-08ENG AA Routes question(no spoilers pls)Probably, but that seems unnecessary. The brief branches in the common route are really minor. There's no reason to go out of your way to avoid any.
t12157.22019-04-07ENG AA Routes question(no spoilers pls)Choosing a route at start just locks you onto it. You can still reach all of them by making the right choices instead.
