Dear god, this is one of the few VNs that are literally making me scream in frustration because of how freaking easy it is to get a bad ending (the last one I played that was this difficult was 999)! Usually I'm a pro at aiming for a certain type of ending and getting it, but some choices just lock you into an automatic fail route.
On my first run, PAU and FAD were disconnected from me, and I got a game over when I went to the medical labs and got the Supervisor's life support shut off. Today I managed to get to Chapter 2 with Sachiko in tow, and I went through all possible combinations in her route. All of them were bad endings. HOLY SHIT I HATE THAT WOMAN SO DAMN MUCH D:<
So if I'm still banging my head against my keyboard after a couple more playthroughs, I'll need a guide from you T_T

Very fun and interesting game. I love the plot and the writing. Its pretty damn hard though.
I can't seem to get Minako's good or normal ending. I got all of the girls endings though. I tried playing around with the robots and different paths but none of them worked.
Anyways its a great game but, I agree with CombatEye about the ending list. I didn't find it till I went through a few paths.

Take a look at the tip Taleweaver posted about Minako's route earlier in this thread. I think it was page 1. That was pivotal for me to get on the good route.

I wonder whether any of you besides Rewritten Ennui has already found out what the Secret Hinami Karaoke Contest is all about... and who of you will be taking part :)

Pretty sure I figured out what it is, but I'm not one for participating that sort of activity.
I try to keep embarrassing myself to a bare minimum. :lol:

Oh wow, I really, really love this. The setting, the concept, the writing... everything about this is awesome. I've been spending the whole night playing the thing. I would normally look at each bit individually and tell you what parts I liked most and what could be improved, but I think I just flat out love the entire thing.

That said, I have run into a dead end. Getting a variety of endings for Erika and Hinami was simple enough, but I cannot, for the life of me, get anything but the sad and bad endings for Minako. I feel like I'm missing something, but I've gone through just about every possibility available on her route.

That Minako trick is hard to find, isn't it?

Oh my. I'm absolutely in love with this!
Such a unique and intriguing concept, and the writing is great as always.

The art is gorgeous as well <3
That flipping submarine, though! Hnngggg. I just can't get any happy endings whatsoever. What am I missing?
And, I kind of feel bad downloading this game for free. P: Wish there was a way to pay for it!

I hate PayPal with a passion, but I doubt that my programmer DaFool would object to a little donation. Just PM him for his PayPal details.

Also, I've sent you a PM for your other problems.

@ SparkleDash
No money, please. The game was conceived as 'freeware'.

We do have commercial games in the making, but they were conceived as commercial games from the very beginning (all copyrights sorted out, or bought and paid for).

Accepting donations for something that many people contributed does not bode well with me.

But I'm really happy with the comment nevertheless, it means we're getting there.

I'd rather you commission some of the fine artists here.
