AUGH!
I didn't know it was going to be so sadddd T_T
The menu picture is really misleading. It's not bad that it's a sad story, but I just felt really suprised.
It was touching. I do wish it had character cgs and drawn bgs instead of photos though...
It was a great feat that you were able to make a moving story in such a short amount of play time.

Haha, I'm glad that you were moved by it!
I wasn't sure whether I was able to convey enough emotion or not...so thank you!
Yes, I wanted to draw more of the BGs, and maybe some character art, but I am pretty new to making V/KNs, so I'm not sure how to go about creating sprites for my games (editing and such). I also have some technical work to do on my artwork. :D

I really liked the interpretation of the song.
I really liked the line about the last balloon.

I wasn't too surprised by the ending being sad. This is one of my favourite songs too.
I did find the ending a bit disjointed and over too quickly -- but that may have been the point!

I like that title and that you used the old money DM.
(I am a german, so i like that ;D)


the story was very short, but touching. i am a happy-ending-liking-typ so i wouldnt want to play again, or else i start crying.

Thanks you for your kind responses!

@Susan - I am glad that you liked it! The ending wasn't meant to be disjointed, but after I went back, I thought it turned out well!

@Silver - Yeah, I wanted to be authentic to the setting of the song. And, I believe the ending couldn't work any other than sad.
I tried to make it a little bit happy with her final line as she sends off the balloon. I wonder if that was conveyed well?

well the ending thing you did, (i dont know how to use that spoiler write thing =))
i think i would rather keep that, than what in your story happened. but i thought its a very good end. it fits perfectly to the atmosphere.

sorry if you didnt understand my gibberish =D

Ah, I see.

Thank you for your input! ^^
About DMs, I wasn't sure about what the exchange rate would be, so some of the "prices" may be a little off...I wasn't sure how much 20 DMs really is =3

20 Dm are 10 euro. But i don't know exactly how much dollar that are, maybe 13 or 14 dollar?
Yeah, the balloon was a bit expensive, but oh well, its not that the story was influenced by that =)

:shock: what you understood what i meant xDDok
I meant that i rather would have kept the ballon, then send him off. but just greedy me :roll: :mrgreen:
