A Foretold Affair [Adventure][?xG/B/X][Commercial]IndieGala!

#1 Post by Googaboga » Mon Jan 30, 2017 9:36 pm

A Foretold Affair is in the IndieGala "Crystal Anime" bundle! Get the game, plus nine others, for only 3.99$ for the first 24 hours!

Our touching and inclusive steampunk-fantasy Visual Novel "A Foretold Affair" is available now on Windows, Mac, and Linux for only 12.99$!

There's a demo you can try there too~
✧✧✧✧✧
In this barren world of endless deserts, almost all live their lives upon large fractions of land floating above the surface.

Here there are two types of people: Normals and Abnormals.
✧✧✧✧✧
Buffalo Seer is an eccentric Abnormal who wants nothing more than to use the magic ability within them; future seeing. However, even within their society where everyone has a special power, future seeing is considered dangerous and advised against.

Unable to be swayed, Seer finally gains permission to look into their own future, only to receive an unbelievable revelation. Not only have they left Abnormal society, they’re married to someone they’ve never met before.

With visions of happiness in their mind, Seer leaves everything behind and ventures to the part of the land fraction where those without magic live; Normal society.

Seer is going to convince this stranger that they are meant to be together no matter what it takes, even if it means tagging along on an adventure.

In only a few days Seer will learn just how far away that pleasant future is.

I think this looks really good! I want to buy it, but want to play the demo first. Unfortunately, whenever I try to download it to windows, it stops midway and says "Failed - forbidden". Do you know how I could possibly solve this? :/

Okay, I got it to work and played the demo and then purchased the game, but now the same thing is happening when I try to download the full game :cry: It just says "Failed - Forbidden". Sometimes also "Network Error", but my internet works just fine. I don't know what to do....

@doodle
We're sorry for the trouble. A backer reported the same type of thing happening and it turned out to be a problem with Itch. Since you bought the game you have the option to use Itch's alternate download mode. I'm not sure if that can be use to download demos, but you already got that. Either way, using that method worked for the backer, hopefully it'll work for you too!

Here's a link to how to do it;

Let me know if that doesn't do any good. And thanks for buying our game c:

This is a well-written story with quite realistic characters and reactions. Too bad the romance part wasn't the passionate one, but having a kinda somber romance is good too.

I also played this in one sitting and at the end I was kinda delirious from sleep deprival, I need to replay this once more time :lol: Ah, January is so beautiful~~~

It's okay - before I saw this answer, I tried just downloading it over and over and eventually it worked xD I stayed up almost all night playing it. I love the art and the writing a lot! The story was intriguing. In most VN's, if you pursue a love interest, you can mess up and maybe even get a game over if you don't pick the right options, but this wasn't the case here and I loved that. I loved all the awkward and tense moments between the characters, it felt very realistic, and how each of them developed so much until the end. Usually I like it more when we are able to create the MC's ourselves (because it opens up for so much creativity), but I absolutely adore Buffalo Seer. My favorite main character with a set personality by far in any VN! I loved how flawed they are, and how they change. I'd really hope for a sequel set in the same world, because it seemed like there were still a lot to explore there.
I look forward to your future work! :D

I really want to play this I still remember it from the demo I played. But I dont have the money for it right now. Which sucks because I want to play this right now. I just have to wait patiently until I can play it. :3

Thank you to everybody who's gotten the game so far. It really means a lot to us ;v;.

@YonYonYon
Haha, yeah. The game isn't much of a whirlwind romance. But I'm glad you enjoyed it, even if a more low key relationship style isn't exactly what you would've preferred.

I hope you got some rest afterwards :lol:. And I must agree, January's quite a doll~

Thanks very much for giving it a go and letting us know what you thought!

@doodle
That's a relief. It's great you were able to get it to go. Wow, it's fantastic you enjoyed so many aspects of the game :D. It's super flattering that Seer is your favorite defined MC. I thought the game was good, but I honestly wasn't counting on it being anyone's favorite anything :'D.

As for a sequel game, we're undecided about that right now. It would certainly be cool, but we have quite a few new projects lined up already for the coming years so we don't know when we'd be able to fit it in >>. I suppose we'll just have to see if the opportunity presents itself C:

Thank you for letting us know what you feel about it!

@Kikaharu
It's wonderful to hear that you wanna play the full game. Hopefully you'll get to relatively soon :>
