"He woke up one day, and felt that something was wrong."
ovnogesl is a short story about two friends. One of them, while exploring the town they lived in, remembers something of the past. He also keeps running into a very familiar little girl, who seems angry at him. Is there something important to him that he had forgotten?

The initial idea for ovnogesl can be found here: Deviant art link
This is an adaptation of the idea using the RPG Maker VX Ace Lite, so certain parts of the story might be different.

I don't know what I just played. And I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing... But I'm glad it's over. o_o

Actually, I saw your sketch on dA, and while the idea seems nice and it could have been translated much better to rpg maker, it's definitively not what I would call a game; Not without some solid game mechanics to it... But keep developing the idea and see where it gets you, read some mapping tutorials while you're at it, and then maybe you'll have something enjoyable.

I had the exact same reaction as alterego. What did I just play? I guess it's supposed to be a visual novel, but then you have opportunity to control your character or make decisions. It honestly fails at being both a game or a visual novel in that regard.

There was one point where I randomly died due to... Getting tired while walking around the map? You give no indication through your game as to how its supposed to be played. It's bad game design. What was the "puzzle" I played near the beginning of the game? I just made up stuff and I got through it? How is it even a puzzle in that regard? Nothing in this game makes any sense to me.

I have yet to figure out your story, as well.
So you are some kid who lost the life of his crush at the hand of your lover's brother? Then you wind up in hell and everyone turns into butterflies. Along the way you are trying to remember something, but I honestly have no idea what it is.

Put it in spoilers so that I don't spoil everything.

Needless to say I didn't enjoy this game(?) one bit. I'd take alterego's advice.
I like the experiment you've got going on here: it's a fresh exploration of narrative techniques unique to 'games' and a nice minimalist story fleshed out enough that, on its own, isn't too obtuse.

Unfortunately, the open world/lack of direction and inexplicable game overs really do obfuscate the storyline and make for a frustrating experience to trudge through. I understand that open event sequence is a major component of the narrative experiment and it really lends itself to identifying with White's jumbled recollections at first, but there's a point fairly early on where we get it and anything more just starts to hurt the audience's participation.

In the future, reign it in a bit and be mindful of accessibility.
I can appreciate the fact that you wanted to do some kind of experiment, but this really was just weird... I didn't get anything, there was no plot. I didn't know what the hell was happening! I think to sum it up in a word, you would have to just say, "confusing". Thumbs up for trying to do something a bit edgy, but it kind of fell of the edge completely! ^^
Bad.. You decided not to explain anything that was going on, I couldn't tell if the main character was being raped or beaten up(I'm being dead serious). People turning into Butterflies, Random strings of words(that should be sentences), Talking to the wrong person in the wrong order will end the game & mapping that leaves much to be desired, all made this a BAD game. Please improve it.

if they were female friends id be interested
to much media focuses on male leads is part of the reason
