I must say these (Fade-style, I would call them) ministories which kind of verge on the abstract, but have this narrative element, definitely seem to suit you. Also, this time especially, the pictures really (and I'd almost say essentially) complemented the writing. There are not many people I will read such works from since they are not my kind of reading, but once again, from you I really liked it. I'm a fan, that much I have realized already.

I didn't figure out that there were two narrators until the end. :oops:

Overall, I enjoyed this. I like the atmosphere and consistency of the artwork, and thought the genie metaphor worked well.

I almost didn't play "Crimson" because of that, but I have a Vista partition that I don't use, so I booted that up, installed "Crimson" (storing the program data on a flash drive) and tried to play it. Vista crashed a screen or two into the story, so I removed everything from the program data folder except the "game" subdirectory, copied the folder into my Ren'Py folder under Ubuntu, and launched "Crimson" using Ren'Py.

Oh, and it took me some time to figure out the downloading site. I use MediaFire and I think it might be a better option.

The download site doesn't work for me, even after I temporarily disable NoScript.

Well some of us don't dual boot at all. Skipping sadly as the author has decided to ignore two platforms altogether. I'm assuming you built this on the windows executable, is it different than ours? I had an option to compile for mac and linux which I used and it took no longer to build it. Why have you foregone this option?

Needs Mac/Linux version. Some of us don't like tri-booting.

I've used Ren'Py 6.9.3b to build an all-in-one Windows/Macintosh/Linux archive and a Macintosh app for this. I'll upload them soon. Hope you don't mind, Cymark.

Peace,
