I was giggling during the entire playthrough.
Horai's comment about the prince writing in caps took me completely off guard XD
Congrats for finishing this game so fast :3

This game is A++++!!!!!!!!!! Nice and short, fun to read, good music, beautiful presentation :)
I lost it at the ID card picture xD Got a good amount of laughs out of this~
The only thing is that "Horai" and "The Mother" was hard to read at the one part where there was a name box because the text colors were too dark?

But....

O-Oh man I played it because Anna recommended it to me and I must say that this was such an enjoyable game, it gave me the good laugh I needed. Silly bumbling Horai is just downright hilarious and adorable *o*

Congrats on the release and on such a hilarious, amusing game! ♥ ♥ ♥

Well, despite my fears I didn't have a hard time playing it at all. Somehow Horai's actions didn't activate the part that makes me squirm with secondhand embarrasment, and I was left to enjoy the humour.
I think it's just that her 'strange acts' were so weird my secondhand embarrasment gave up in disbelief.

I'm not sure if it's been mentioned or not, but in the beginning after you put in your username, there's no @ symbol in the email address...

I giggled like crazy when reading this. And yes, I actually giggled. I always feel awkward after giggling, but it was my response so....
My favorite line was that they were connected by the red string... of communism. Just thinking about using the red string that way... And Light Yagami as the ID image is so obvious and awesome.

The epilogue made me sad! I was so much happier knowing that Horai was a crazy girl who legitimately fell in love with a spambot using the most beautiful descriptions in the world. The sadness I felt expressed itself like a single porcupine pricking me with each quill one by one.
But this was amazing anyway. The art was great; the writing was great; the music matched perfectly. You did a wonderful job.

I see what you did there. :P

Haha I'm getting very mixed reviews regarding
the real Horai
so I'm still not sure whether or not it was a good decision to stuff that epilogue in...

I thought that Rich Hastely was a funny character. I kind of got this vibe that he was trolling Horai because he wants her attention, like something out of the beginning of a dating sim. It reminded me of Re: Alistair ++ actually.

I think that the main issue with the epilogue is that Horai's personality is so completely different from what we got used to during the main story. It made me feel like I'd been trolled worse than Horai had been at first x.X

I like the epilouge myself.
Seeing who I thought was an idiot turn out to be smart enough to pull something like this made it more fun.

I'm with those who liked the epilogue, although the "good" ending was my favorite - made me laugh quite a bit! A short, cute, and hilarious game overall. Horai's comments were almost as amazing as her similes...although in my opinion,
Rick Hastley
definitely stole the show. Excellent work, especially with the astoundingly short development time!

Internet scam, huh ? I have no idea what is that until I read this VN.
I've been trying to reply, but no appropriate response. I guess my case is the same as Horai
for not knowing the scambots thing. but at least I'm not as hopeless (in love) as her xD. She's really naive, isn't she ? Well, not until I read the epilogue...I think it's better to leave the story end without the epilogue. Let Horai dreams about her prince xD
The art is lovely as your previous VN, "Ribbon of Green" :)
I like your style

Thanks, but the art isn't by me this time round - it's by the lovely bic. :) My hideous Ribbon of Green art can't compare to that!

I'm finally going through my list of backlog of games and started with yours, and I found it extremely ironic how I got this same scam mail the day I discovered this game lol! The Prince and I must be a match made in heaven. :lol:

Coming in, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I thought the game was funny, especially Horai's metaphors/purple proses lol. The way you set up the screen worked well with the game, and the art is beautiful!

Thanks for sharing! What a good way to start my morning. xD

Thanks, a lot - that was real fun...)) I felt pretty much the same when I've recieved my "Nigerian letter of joy"...
And main menu music brought the feeling of a sweet nostalgia - Contra, Castlevania, Metal Gear (gon'na find the nintendo emulation and play them a bit more *teardrop*).
