Synopsis
A boy has recently found a great MMORPG in the depths of the internet. Excited, he stays up behind his computer late at night, while a thunderstorm is roaring outside. However, just as he completed his character creation - thunder strikes!

All electricity and thus also his computer shut down at once, leaving him in the dark. Though sad, he has no choice but to wait for now. However, in the game, his character has already begun playing without him...

In the end we had to rush and improvise to get our soundtrack together and we lost a lot of sleep over this, but we made it and I'm proud that we did. Me and K-chan hope you'll enjoy reading it and please share your thoughts if you do :)!

Awesome work, folks, congratulations. But why the 3+ age rating? Does it contain small parts that could be swallowed by small children and pets?

Nope, but we only fear for the teeth of those above 3 years old, because then all your teeth have grown for sure :D~

I'm playing this now, so I'll leave my full thoughts later, but I just wanted you to know that so far this game is a winner. ^_^ The art is adorable, and I think it's brilliant that everything in the UI is clickable! It's hard to believe you did this all in just one month! Your hard work has definitely payed off.

I finished all the ending and I'm amazed that this game is finished in one month! :D
The textbox was beautiful *w*
That extra! even pompom and the catgirl was there xD
Alesia's route:
I was kinda annoyed that Chaz (¢hu«) was so late at realizing that Alesia's not a real player ^_^"
Iris's route:
I just love that the catgirl was dumb enough to be effected by his fake compliments! XD
Overall : Even though it's just a short game, it was fun and enjoyable. ^_^
Congrats on finishing this! :)

All right, I've finished the game. It was very cute, and yeah, sweet enough that I feel I should brush my teeth now XD
I actually was kind of sad while playing it, though... poor Chaz. Alesia's path made me the saddest, especially.
I felt really bad for him when he tried to give her the earrings, and didn't understand why she wouldn't take them... and then when the other players told him she wasn't real ; w ;
But I have no complaints about this game. It was simple and fun, and the sprites are the cutest things I've seen in any VN. So great work! ^-^

Oops! It seems it can go that way too, haha. Sorry for that, but thanks for being honest about it :D!

Thank you~! The kitty was my favourite enemy to write haha, she was even called 'tsun-kitty' outside of the script XD.

Wow, thanks so much! It's also fun to see how the Alesia route seems to work differently for people haha *hands tissue*, I'm glad you liked it :3.

I downloaded... :D Excited.

I'm getting this error message:

"Unable to find or use native libraries for OpenGL.

Are you trying to use 32-bit OpenGL with 64-bit Java or vice versa? Does the lib folder exist?"

Um... any fixes for that? ._. I'd love to play the game, but I don't know how to fix that error...

Which .exe did you click? There are two, the 64 bits one and the 32 bits one, I think it looks at your Java version.

Try both .exe located inside the VN's folder and tell me if you still can't open it, ok :3?

Ooh, the 64-bit one worked (Funny, I thought I have 32-bit Windows 7? O_O) Thanks a bunch! I'll give my feedback when I'm done playing. :)

I think it just looks at your Java haha, so it means you have 64 bit Java. Glad it worked!

Can you try downloading the zip file again? Sometimes mediafire has a hiccup in the download :).

As for installing it - in what folder are you installing it? What exactly happened when you double-clicked the file, could you be more specific?

I'll ask some others about this then, but please make sure you have java 6 or higher installed - perhaps that could be the problem (you can find it in the first post). Now I have to go for a few hours so if you've no luck with it still, then I'll help you when I get back.
