Oh, that's ok, I understood. XD
Ohhh I see. XD Makes sense.

Oh no! I never said A SEQUEL WILL HAVE ADULT CONTENT. I was just wondering if anyone wanted that. XD Feel free to throw in your vote against!

Glad you liked it! X3

I think throwing in adult content would make a following game cheap and not sacred (see what I did there)-- but seriously, I think this KN presented heartfelt and adult themes rather well without having to, well, throw in adult scenes. If people want it and you're fine with making it, it's okay of course. Basically, not necessary, but it won't stop me from looking forward to a sequel if it ever comes out.

@MaiMai: Woot for opinions! :3
I think this KN presented heartfelt and adult themes rather well without having to, well, throw in adult scenes.
Really? o.o Awww thanks so much! (Were the themes in TCAST really adult? XD Autumn is so virginal I want to punch her sometimes. I'm very glad you thought otherwise!)
Don't worry, if I did adult scenes, that wouldn't be all about the sex. Like, it wouldn't transform TCAST into some porn-universe where sex is the point of everything, or there exclusively as fanservice. (I mean, I believe in fanservice, but I believe in other things more.) It'd be more like the sex would be to serve some other point--like on character development or something.
Though right now, with the potential sequel that I am still considering but it still may not happen, I'm leaning away from adult content.
Thanks for your support!

@xSamChan:
Oh my god! You officially win the best saddest reaction award! I'm sorry that happened, but I hope it was therapeutic. ^-^;; I send Jude your way with a consolatory teddy bear, hugs, and warm cookies.

@clua:
Great to hear! :D I look forward to them!

you.... you.... T_T why!?!?! I'm a total newbie I can't really give a proper review on this BUT I just had to point out some stuff.
I HATE YOU!! *lol* no, on the contrary, I love you *_* hahaha. Well at first I didn't want to download it or anything because...... Jude seemed like a total jerk (on the screenshot) but then I thought hold on, the art work is really nice and well... it doesn't hurt... to.. *downloading*. I got so and by that I mean SO into it, that by the time I finished it really hurt to be in reality and not in that little world you created for us. I didn't left my screen at all.
It was well put together and VERY enjoyable. I will love if this had any continuation (this is only a selfish request, please ignore xD).

@Risuna
I think you mean kinetic novel. (It is true that it is a visual novel, but I do not think that's what you mean.) :)
Visual novels can definitely be considered games, after all.
(All projects currently on a hiatus of sorts. I blame life.)

@Rienu: Thank you! :D Dude, that music makes me sad too... o.o I was like "Must use this!"

@belovedkiss: I love you too! XD I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
Geez, I want to live in the TCAST world too. o.o Hot sex robots!
Jude IS a total jerk. XD He just has his moments. Glad he didn't deter you from the game!

@Taleweaver: I toast to that! XD Thank you so much! :D Congratulations to yourself for Thirteenth Year winning Best Drama~! X3

@Risuna: Glad you liked the story. :D

@redeyesblackpanda: Thanks for stepping in and explaining. :3

I never thought I would like a kinetic novel but I'm glad I went ahead and read this one. I loved the sci-fi aspect and I have to say that this is the first visual novel that has ever made me cry. Terrific story and the CGs were very vibrant. Loved it!

I still remember playing the TCAST demo years ago. I'm glad to see that you stuck with this, and finished it. I wrote a review here. Thank you for writing and creating this.

i wouldnt mind adult content in a sequel. i mean as long as its not porn im totally cool with innuendos and a lil show of adult themes as long as it adds to the story.As Autumn grows im pretty sure her view of the world doesn't stay innocent and virginal forever. With that said, i cant wait for a sequel! your story stuck with me long after i finished it.
