I have to say, I really enjoyed playing this game. I think out of all the different ones I played, this one is my favorite. It actually made me tear up and cry! The emotional twist had me surprised, yet amazed. It was really touching. :3 The writing was excellent too. As a writer, I really hope that one day, I'll be able to make people cry with my writing... (in a good way). I absolutely cannot wait for the remastered edition. I'll make sure to be among the first to play it. X3

Wow, thank you so much! It's a huge honor to hear you enjoyed our game that much. :'D We'll be sure to do our best with the remastered version. And yay, fellow writer (highfive)! I know what you mean about getting people to experience different emotions. If it's possible to make readers both laugh and cry in the same story, I consider that pretty successful!
Your LP is hilarious - I hope you continue it! xD
Aw, I'm glad the script made you cry (in a good way)! When my teammates wanted some tearjerking parts, I felt rather pressured, ahaha. So I'm glad it worked out in the end!
Thanks! Let us know if you have any other comments after you finish. ;D Like Azure said, you can unlock the Chinese translations after completing all three endings. (And lol, maybe we should have switched places - my school actually made everyone take music classes.)
Yep, we are using traditional characters. Nellie and I both have Taiwanese backgrounds, so that's part of the reason. We were also hoping fewer people would be able to read traditional, so Hao wouldn't be as easy to understand. ^^ It would be really cool to have a Chinese voice actor, though - could convey a lot more emotion that way!
Aw, thanks - I'm glad you enjoyed it! ;D I think it's more fun not to understand Hao as well (sorry to all the bilingual people!)
Haha, yeah! Actually, the original idea was to have a slacker, bad boy male protagonist and a cute Chinese girl. We ended up flipping the genders because we thought it would be more interesting. I kinda wonder how it would have turned out the other way, lol.
Thanks again to everybody who has tried our game and taken the time to leave their thoughts! We really appreciate each and every one of you guys! :'D
Nellie mentioned earlier that we are working on an Android port of a2, and I'm happy to say that is well underway! We've made a couple builds with RAPT so far and are currently working on reducing the file size. If anyone has experience with optimizing for Android games, let us know!
Also, the amazing Marcel Weyers has recently finished a German translation of a2! We'll be finishing up the German version in the next few weeks, which I'm super excited about! Thanks again, Marcel!

This game is amazing, especially considering that it's a nanoreno project (I cannot believe you people put it together in only a month). It actually made me cry and the only games that have ever managed that iirc were Okami and To the Moon. I loved the characters, even the no-name orchestra members. There's just so much personality and heart suffusing the whole thing and you achieved such a great balance between drama and humour. This is one of the best VNs I've played in a long time.
I'm looking forward to any potential expanded/remastered version and I'd even purchase it if it was commercial. Also, are there any plans to bring it to iOS?
I liked it. Actually liked it. The writing wasn't totally atrocious. That is a big thing for me; the writing. But it was more than just the writing, the music was lovely. I mean sure they are well known compositions but, They are well known compositions I love. I don't know what possessed me to download this, I usually treat romance VN like viruses because they promise to have little to no development.
As this story came to a shock in my eyes for its quality; I was hit hard. Making me enjoy this more than I expected. Humbled. Writing, though not equal to the older books like Dante's Inferno or The Confessions of Nate Tuner, was good enough to be considered a book. This was nice.
Certainly worth playing even if only for the surprise I felt in its quality.

@Nebty - Really glad you enjoy the game so much! The remastered/expansion version will still be free too! We are considering porting it to iOS, but atm, we do not have the technology to do so. Aro and I are trying to pick up (possibly) AS3 so we can port all our games to iOS too! Hohoho :3
@VerdeICe - Thank you so much for such a heartfelt review! It means so much to each of us! I'm personally also a huge fan of Aro's writings, and I'm really glad you enjoy the writing as much as I do! I hope you'll continue to give our future games a try, and hope we will not disappoint you!
Right now I'm trying to learn how to register an account with google play and start putting up the game for everyone to download! Both English and German version! We have received a lot of tips/advises/helps from talented LSFers to improve a2, but remastered version will have to wait until after The Pirate Mermaid is done! Those of you who have not tried it, please give it a try! (shameless self promotion lol) We have a cute little mascot parrot in there *wink*

Argh, afraid this fanart is neither colored nor looks like your characters, but thanks for giving me the opportunity to sketch them!

Wow, what a neat coincidence! I swear we're not reading your mind! xD
And yay, you know Butterly Lovers! I was hoping people would recognize it as a famous Chinese orchestral piece - I don't hate it as much as Sona does, lol.
Sorry for the late reply lol.
And yeah, I actually did enjoy Butterfly Lovers ~
