“Mariko, I love you.
But I can’t do this anymore.
It’s not your fault,
and there was nothing you could’ve done for me.
There’s nothing you could’ve done about ‘her’.”

~~~
Dear Mariko is a short, simple game about a girl who comes home to find a goodbye letter from the one she loves.

Ah, I was about to say that it reminds me of RPG-maker style games then I saw the download here ^_^
Looks really interesting. Will play it soon - most probably Thursday (hopefully). Really nice art. :)
Will tell you what I think after playing :D
Can't wait to play~~~~~

Code: Select all

RGSS-RTP Standard not found. 


I keep getting this when I click to play the game. I didn't know which of the RTP downloads to install. Do you know how I can fix this? Coding and the like is not my forte! ...And I really want to play the game...T_T

I've uploaded the latest version! :) Hopefully that fixes the bug. For now, either download the RTP from Alte's website above (thanks Alte!), or open the Game.ini file and remove the word "Standard" and nothing else - should work smoothly!

Hello! Congrats on the release <3
I liked the game a lot, but I realized what was happening from the moment she read the letter haha. I believe I read something like this in a creepypasta...?

I got the normal ending first, since I was so unsure of what to do D: I was like, "Oh, maybe something will happen when I leave the house." Welp, something did happen. The game ended. :))

I got the bad ending next since I didn't take a knife D: Then I remembered that there's some cutlery thing in the kitchen thingy, and got the true ending! :>
Thank you for the nice game! :>

I just finished playing through this! It was quite nice. I got the normal ending first and wasn't sure how to even trigger the other endings but I somehow managed to do it after some going back and forth. However, I think I missed the point? Even after getting the true ending, I was a bit confused @A@ Someone care to explain and help me? xD

I liked it anyway~

Haha, well that was pretty much the basis of the entire plot. :P I guess that's all it is for a 5-minute game. Glad you enjoyed it!

So I played this little gem and found this to be quite enjoyable. The art is beautiful too, and when those red eyes flashed I literally jumped from my chair! Really nice use of sound effects! My only complaints is that it's really short! (And I wanna know what the guy really looks like...)
I love the little twist in the end... So we're not really Mariko, huh... Nice one, Coren! You got me yet once again!
Looking forward to see more games from you!
