Solitude [English version]

Early last year I came across a small visual novel called Solitude by mar-cell - it was made in mid-2011, a short (15 minute) story.

As it was in Slovak only and the script file was not obfuscated, I translated it to English. I then tried to contact the author a few times to make sure it's OK with him to distribute an English version, but unsuccessfully. I have tried again recently, again without any success.

Still, I would like to make the translation available, and I think the most appropriate form at this time is a patch and a link to the original game.
So here it is:

Summary: Kenzo lives alone and it seems he is not missing anything in his life. One day however, he comes back home and realizes someone has broken into his house...
A 15-20 minute kinetic novel

What's the story about? There's no description at vndb, just a picture.

Well, the summary I provided above is what I thought would be acceptable to reveal to the player as the minimum reasonable information, and the story is so short that any further information is more or less already a spoiler. And it's hard to know how much the author would have wanted to reveal (certainly the homepage or vndb have no information), but because I wasn't able to contact him, I feel I should just provide the patch and point to the game "as it is".
