This book sounds to me like Kawabata Yasunari's Snow Country (雪国) which could possibly be used as VN material, but I'd be nervous about utilizing a Nobel Prize Winner's work in that way ^^;;;

I will play this when I get the chance....

I played through and thought the story was beautiful and perfectly suited to the VN format as well. I didn't want the story to end where it did, but it was probably better of Dostoyevsky to leave it there. Also, I thought the backgrounds really captured the mood, except that I did have one little problem with it--there is one scene where the line is "it was very dark by now" or something similar, but the sky in the background was unmistakably bright.

Weirdly, I felt the story needed a slower default text speed. Normally I crank up the slider to instant when I play through games, but I actually went into the settings and slowed down the text for this one. *shrug*

Thanks for publishing this--I would probably have missed out on the work otherwise.

Thanks for playing - about the Nobel Prize - I don't think that something like that should stop you, Dostoyevsky is regarded as one of the greatest novelists ever and it didn't stop me ^_^. If it's right, it's right, regardless of origin or popularity, I'd say.

The "it was very dark by now" section was something I also noticed, but I left it like that, since I wanted a relatively small amount of BGs for the main part. But you're right, it stands out, alongside some other small things as well.
