Yossha! I've been looking forward to this for a while, so I'm happy to see that it's been released. ^-^

It took me five tries before I got a "good" end. It's tricky trying to figure out all the right stuff to do. D: The art is great, and the story really changes quite a bit depending on your choices. I like the navigation system quite a bit. It adds a nice layer of interactivity that gives the player a lot more control. Fun stuff.

Thanks :) well there are probably more "bad" endings than "good" ones. And there's one really hard to get "happy ending" that also requires some relationship values beside making the right choices :mrgreen:

EDIT :wink:
:D This game is SO good : great mystery plot, original characters full of surprises, tremendously immersive (and complete !) voice acting, lots of different moods (delightful romance comedy, action, suspense, tragedy...), wonderful directing and witty art, meaningful choices and gameplay, references for every taste (
M.Shelley's Frankenstein, Blade Runner, Elfen Lied...
) and breathtaking replay value with so many endings !
2009's favourite so far, as expected and so much more : IMAO, E-X-C-E-P-T-I-O-N-A-L !

Glad you like it!! 8)
I think is my best game so far either. I'm just hoping people won't even play it just because for the "sci-fi" theme (I'm thinking mainly women, since notoriously they don't like much sci-fi but prefer fantasy). I'm confident enough if people play the demo, they'll be interested in the fullgame, but I know many people that just make judgement on settings etc. That's why I am referring it to as "space opera" as a girl friend of mine suggested, to avoid the cursed word "sci-fi" :)

Bought the game yesterday and I've been enjoying it alot. Still trying to figure out any possible methods on getting the three remaining endings I need though. So many choices where I have no clue if they're important or not, heh.

I do have a question about a conversation, however, but I'll put it in spoilers just in case people care about figuring things out on their own.
After asking Tanya to tell Helen the truth in chapter 3, Helen runs off saying she never wants to see Luke again. The next day and the days after, whenever I try to go to Helen's store, Helen will just say "Luke?" and then it'll go back to the holomap. Is that supposed to happen or is that a bug?

Ah sorry, it should say that, and another sentence to push you out of her shop :mrgreen: will fix it even for the story doesn't matter much, she doesn't want to see you anymore.

I played through the demo and I am very impressed with the voice acting. I think without it, I wouldn't have had much patience just reading. But the graphics were very nice! Wish I could buy this game, sigh what is having money.

I bought the full game and I'm having a lot of fun with it! :D I've still got 4 endings left. I love the whole Blade Runner atmosphere. Great artwork.

This is definitely my favorite English language VN. 8)

Initially wasn't sure: however now I think I could definitely do a sequel :)
Was thinking, would be more fun to play as Tanya herself in the sequel? Could open up new gameplay perspectives.

yeah, playing as Tanya could be fun. Or maybe playing as a police officer... I think there are lots of possibilities.

Since got many request for the last ending, I'm going to post some info here (with spoiler of course).
To get that one you need:
if attributes[Ptanya]>50 and attributes[Phelen]>60:
so 50 relationship with Tanya and 60 with Helen

In practice this can be accomplished for Helen quite easily (tell her you want to live with her, do well when she comes to make the surprise dinner, etc).
For Tanya is a bit more difficult since there are several points where you can change her relationship into positive one, but still is possible, for example:
1."You like her" (when you meet her) +10
2."Reassure her about your intentions" (when you pick the gun in your bedroom) +5
3."Ask if she was worried about you" (if you stay at Helen in chapter3 and then go back to your house) +5
4."Flirt with Tanya" (when she kisses you) +15
5."Try with kind manners" (when she has the bathroom crisis) +5

considering you start with relationship at 30, you just need the 1 and 4 to have relationship >50, so being able to get the "Happy Ending" one :)
Ah to get that one you must pick "Helen must know everything" dialogue. Ok that's enough hints for now!
