(late reply but, oh well.) That's funny, I just got my first ending, it was You's path,
but it was a bad ending. And damnit, was I glued to the screen, hoping things would work out til the last second. When it mentioned Himmel opening I was still thinking THEY'RE GONNA MAKE IT! I teared up when it popped up and said Life Reading: 1. Not even Air was able to arouse that much emotion in me.
Sorry for gushing, but I've just loved it so far...this is all I can do not to get playing again. I don't hear Ever17 and many of Hirameki's works mentioned nearly as much as games from other companies, yet I found this game to be high quality and something to shoot for. Now I will definitely agree that the lack of proofreading drives me batty at times, but it didn't completely destroy the game experience.
I also felt like there were other scenes that could have had a CG image or animation for them without too much difficulty, but I have that gripe with a lot of VNs. Still this was an awesome and captivating experience.
I gotta hurry up and finish papers and baking so I can go on an Ever17 binge and get the other endings!
BTW, does anyone know if Hirameki's still ticking (doesn't seem like much activity on the main site and the board seems to be down.) I really hope they can find a way to get Never7 and Remember11 from the company that bought Kid's properties...
