Train of Afterlife (Mystery, Psychological, Horror)

A beginning of an end...

You are riding on a train without a name, memory, or your own body. Along with you are five other passengers who will share their thoughts and various tales of their past life before reaching their destination. One of them is clearly different from the rest, as he or she is closely tied to your past - a past that will greatly change your destination. As you embark for the final stage of your life, what will you discover? What is waiting for you at the end of your journey?

Train of Afterlife is a mystery, psychological, horror Visual Novel made in Flash. There are a total of 9 endings, 1 side story, and an extra gallery.

Loved the demo! Art is amazing and the concept is interesting. Sadly, like Ris, I'm not in the position to buy anything at the moment. :/

Loved the opening! So sad, beautiful, and mysterious. The premise sounds interesting. I plan on playing the demo, but I have a question for purchase; I do not have PayPal, credit, or debit. I did see an option called "Amazon Checkout". Does this mean I can purchase the game through Amazon? Let me know, 'cause I can always buy an Amazon card for my account and buy it that way. Thankies ^.^

I played the demo on kongregate and I must say, it is very appealing to me, the calm atmosphere that is permeated by a feeling of great unknowness along with the most atmospheric music and you've got yourself a win nar.
I believe that a man should not go back on his decisions,
But here I am deciding to break that one rule of manliness.
Because I would rather be thought less of as a man,
Then be lost as a person.

I can answer this, since she uses BMT like me (and most other indies). Yes you are right, you can use your Amazon balance/cards to buy the game :)

I played the demo to a certain degree (not all of it, because I had to go do something (dont know what it was ^^)). It's a very fine visual novel. It developes a deeper understanding about whats going on; there are questions to be answerd and -of course- the art is very neat (the idea to make a game in a "ghost-like"-state to not explicitly draw characters for the story but their silhouettes is a risky thing, but ich think you did it well).

I like it so far. When time is on my side I will play through the demo and maybe buy it ^^

I just added a guide in my site, so if anyone is having trouble getting the endings, please check it: http://toa.zeiva.net

@Seven
I'm not spoiling that one :D

Thanks for all the comments. I was actually really nervous posting a game thread here for the first time ^^;

AHHH!!!

Sorry, that was a fangirl reaction :) I'm so glad you posted here Mirage! I can't tell you how much I've loved your work. I remember playing Other Age on a website and thinking to myself "Wow, I like this game creator." Then came OASE (a sorely, sorely underappreciated gem of a VN) that had countless hours of great characters/humor/story which I loved <3. Then of course, X-note which was brilliantly done in so many ways :3 I so want to write reviews of each game, but I know it would just be endless gushing praise, hehe.

My apologies, but I love your games. I always check your fb page for updates on your future games and I just cannot wait for Dragon Essence and Area-X :D

You are amazing. Your VNs always make me smile and laugh and feel like every cent spent was well worth it.

This VN was an automatic get for me~ My apologies for also making this a long post gushing over your past work, I haven't finished Train of Afterlife yet. But I can safely say that based on how much I enjoyed your past work and how much I enjoyed TOA so far, I'll be just as amazed as always.

Thank you for creating such wonderful VNs. I always wanted to tell you this :)

Also: to anyone who is on the fence about getting this VN. Yes, it is a definite buy <3

EDIT: Also, to anyone who hasn't bought OASE or X-note, buy those too. They're also awesome :D

I've already bought 'Train of Afterlife'. I'm still on Wind's path ... but the more I play this game, the more I like it. :)
