W-whut?! Noooo JUUUUDE!! Oh. My. God. That was just....ARGH! I wish there was a sequel where she gets the enternalovers and imprints them with Elly and Judes hard drive. One can dream though! Reminds me of DollHouse which is the best show ever! Essentially same thing except they aren't androids they're real people that were "imprinted" with whatever personality! D,:

This was one of the very first kinetic novels I've played. I remember crying like a baby after playing it, the story was just so touching ;; This novel actually set me up for more games/VNs. This is such an amazing novel, and I probably won't ever remove it from my computer ^^ Thanks for all of your hard work. :)

Finally got around to playing this. Thoughts:

* good work, nice story :)
* the philosophical implications are a bit messed up IMHO @_@
* good realism/consistency within the fantasy setting
* glad I played it :D
* let's see more!

It's so touching~ I'm glad I tried it. I didn't expect to like kinetic novels at first (because you literally read, and not deciding stuff; but I do like reading thou) but I like this one *A* I love all the details you come up with, it's realistic! I would only comment about the drawing style differences between the background and sprites/CG, but it's only that.

The story was enjoyable, even if a bit short and the art style is certainly unique and attractive. Keep up the good work!

Aaahhh love this so much! Especially Elly! Elly is like my favourite girls' name, ever, so maybe I was biased from the start, but her character totally lived up to it and more, argh I just want to pull her from the screen and hang out with her forever!! And we don't play baseball in Australia, so we'd be all good ;D

At first I was kinda sceptical about the premise, thinking it was gonna be just like AI (I did enjoy the Pinocchio/Blue Fairy reference!), but Autumn's human aspect lent the story a totally different perspective and direction. And no good kinetic novel ever ended without leaving a life lesson:
always back up your data!
Thanks for the lovely story ^_^

It took me awhile to get around to reading this, KN's on my computer?! Kato says no! but I'm so glad I finally got there. I'm usually a pretty harsh critic (although I try to be constructive) but there was nothing that jumped out enough for me to even jot it down in my notepad. Loved the art, loved the writing and the story, the characters were all distinct and memorable and gosh darn by the end of it all I experience those horrible things called feelings.

A sequel, a spin-off, a... Ah... I dunno, but it would awesome to keep the ball rolling one way or the other! 5 out of 5 kato heads! :D
