The story takes part in two different worlds.
One of them is the world we all live in. So does Josh together with his brother Alex and their father.
Josh loves video games and books and isn't much interested in his own reality.
His father disapproves this and blames his son. This became worse as their mother died.

But then on one day Josh finds a game in a small shop.
It has no real cover and only one word is written on the CD-case.
Erayu - the games title. Josh takes the game home and starts playing.

The other world is called Erayu. It's the games world, where once an immortal
princess reigned. But one day she disappeared and so seems the light.
Some places in that world are fallen into darkness and more followed soon.
One, who gets into that darkness never returns; not alive nor dead. As if he never existed.

When the game starts, one plays a boy, who awakes among some travelers.
His memories are gone and so he tries to find his way through a world he can't remember.

The game focuses on its story. You will accompany Josh through his everyday life, meet his family and play his latest game:

Here the game will be similar to a Point 'n Click Adventure.

- puzzles and item combinations
- many dialogues
- unique characters
- no battles
- self-made face sets
- custom menus
- collectibles
- a picture gallery
- two endings

Christmas special!

Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is on the... shoe!
Let me tell you in a rhyme.
My poetry is so bad you will whine.

But let me tell you one thing.
You can get into Erayu's credits withing a... bling?

Just click the image and you'll find
a page to do stuff... of some kind.

Uhhh ;w;
Ich hab zu danken. Für's Spielen und für dein super liebes Feedback <3
Die Enden sind sehr auf die Protagonisten fixiert... und ich wollte auch etwas Raum zum Nachdenken lassen :D (Spricht allerdings nichts gegen Fanfictions und Theorien °^°)
Danke (⌒.⌒)

You just have to click install.... It's only one file and just a prettier version of the ordinary RM installer xD
If any error pops up I assume something went wrong during the download o.O
*runs around in panic*
Just try to download it again and see if it's working....

Does anyone else has this problem? D:

Hello Lucy_fox!! I downloaded and started playing your game today and liked it so much that I made an account on here specifically to reach out to you (I have no idea how to otherwise haha; pardon me if I suck at this posting stuff). I really have been enjoying what I've been seeing so far, but right now I'm stuck in the swamp but I can't seem to figure out what to do next and it's super frustrating. grr.

There's no walkthroughs to the point where I'm at yet so rip me. (Your walkthrough pdf in the downloaded file just explains controls and whatnot in English and the booklet is the same thing in German; I wasn't sure if that was intentional).

I know you just released the English version today but I just wanted to mention a couple of things to fix:

1-You've still got quite a few German remnants left in your game. One of the most notable examples is when you open up the inventory screen. What I think(?) should be 'description' is still labeled as 'beschreibung' (this holds true for all items). There's a rogue stone in the swamp that I've been trying to move for ages that's having an identity crisis (sometimes when I mouse over it, it says 'stone' and othertimes 'stein'). There was a piece of dialogue (I can't remember where right now, unfortunately) during a long talk scene that had a one-word line in German also, something like zimmerschein. It started with a Z. I don't remember where or what it was. I didn't take German, sorry T-T

2-I've glitched and have had to restart from my last save point several times :(

-When you're in Silvercity trying to take the ring from the boy; if you open up your inventory and try to give him something without first trying to talk to him it glitches and repeats 'I don't think he wants that' or something similar over and over every time you try to close it.

-I've glitched while trying to cross the just repaired bridge in the dark rainy scene (I click on the arrow to cross over, my character moves backwards for the running start then never makes the leap.)

I've got some other things to say but I'd sincerely appreciate a hint or a poke or something on what I should be doing in the swamp so I stop running around like a headless chicken, haha. However this game is fabulous so far and took up a good part of my day today :) I love the artwork and the gameplay!
I'm abolutely sorry! D:
It was not intentional to forget the walkthrough ;_____;
For now you can download it here, but I'll update it asap.

Thanks for the other things. I fixed them all now except for the one-line thing... Maybe someone will make a screenshot of it :D

Thanks for playing so far and also for your kind words. (⌒.⌒) ❤

Oh and for the contact possibilities. You can always just leave a comment on my homepage. There you don't need to have an account. But I'm also more or less regularly online here. So I'll defiantly see your comments :3
Ah, thank you for the walkthrough! I don't feel as dumb anymore, haha ^^

Another thing: when you combine items and create a new one a box pops up saying 'Neuer Gegenstand' which I assume is 'new item' in German.
Also, Oreyn is labeled as 'Madchen' the next first time right before you meet her. The second ice gate is labeled as 'schloss'; not sure if
this is intentional either.

Also my game glitched again when Josh was in the blackness the second time...he wouldn't walk anywhere T.T had to restart from last save point

Also, how can I send you the missing file log stuff? Do you just need the text from the document?

I'll let you know what else I find as I keep playing :D
Thanks for the help :3
I'm not sure what's happening in the dark area... all my tests and people who were testing it didn't had this issue... So it could be that this will need some time to be fixed T___T

As for the missing file log:
Shuold you never encounter a white square with a red cross or line then I don't need it. This file is more of save... thingy... Usually RPG-Maker throws an error and doesn't let you play anymore if there is a graphic or sound missing.... this script just prevents this.... :D
Yay, it`s finished, I`ve been waiting for this! :D Gonna play it in mean time
I hope you'll enjoy it. Let me read some feedback :D

Ver full 1.0
Random thoughts spoilers
was this mouse only before?

sadly i don't think the game mentions that Esc opens the menu to save. i was looking for a spot to save :3

when in the real world there is no way to leave the save/quit screen without picking either option.

weird to have a code in that paper but have the code written in the message as well o.o
they even had the letters a different color. you would have to be a idiot to not figure it out!

it takes a while sometimes to progress XD between puzzles and figuring out what you need

it was really cool when the conversations with reality started!

i didn't realize it until we were at the ruins but the game has a awesome visual transition of your character in game.his appearance changes as the game progresses!

The ending is such a extreme plot hole! for that to make sense all people in erayu would of had to be dead for the darkness to exist.
unless for some reason they do not mention people of Erayu do not count.

i wish each ending had its own credits so you could see a bit of where both choices went.

General 7H 8M+
Outside of the grammar needing some polish and a major plot hole at the end(refer to above).
this was a enjoyable experience.
it was really nice not to have random battles let alone battles in general!

the mapping is beautiful! just breath taking in some areas!
the puzzles were quite well done as well as the user interface.
i usually play all games i can with a controller but the mouse worked really well here.
occasionally tho the character refused to move in some areas.
having 2 endings was satisfying as well!

it could benefit from some polishing of the grammar but that aside i highly recommend this.
Oh sh** actually both endings do have their own credits... I just forgot to delete a debugging variable. I'm sorry .____.

The note
Though I'm sure there will be enough people who're having trouble with it :D

The ending (No one should read this if he/she hasn't finished the game!)
Not quite right. (I hope I can explain this with my poor english xD)
The whole darkness thing refers to the thought of the requirement of a connection. Or to go with quantum physics: A conscious observer.
You surely know of the thought that if a tree falls, but no one is there who watches it, it may be that it actually in fact never happened.
I always thought this is an interesting theory, cause then there is nothing and no one who can give evidence of that event...

But to keep it more simple: The princess explains that someone has to know of the world to keep it alive. So to say you need a connection. Or better more than one. It's like you hang a ball on threads. When all threads disappear the ball will fall down. The same happens with Erayu. Someone once created this world, but it's now forgotten by it's connections. So the last "thread" is vanishing.

Like if you create a world, which exists just in your mind. And then you die. This will cause your world also to vanish. But if you write it down and publish it, and thousand of people read and know about it, it is still there. Even if it's creator isn't anymore.... This was the background idea ;D

And thank you so much for your kind words and for playing <3
Bug? My nail is missing.
I started playing the game , but I got stuck trying to make a toy for McFluff. I watched two Youtube video walkthroughs and they both show the player getting a nail from a chest after getting some alcohol, but I didn't get any nail, and the chest is no longer active. Is this a bug or has the nail been moved since the videos were made?
PS. I loved your game Ink Travelers. I hope you make a sequel.
there is a walkthrough inside the gamefolder :3
And the LPs show the old demo. There once was a nail, but I removed it. :D

Thank you <3
The walkthrough file that came with the game downloaded from this site did not contain the whole walkthrough, just game controls and credits. I downloaded the game from the Climbing Cat website, and that version did have the walkthrough, so I was able to see how to make the toy without the nail.
Oh, then you must have had an old version of the game.
Since the full version is out the button here also leads to my homepage. (That way I only have to manage a single file instead of many :D)

So it was a good thing to redownloaded it. :D

edit: Oh... or you had the old full version. It was patched a few times since release. And also the correct walkthrough was put in it.
Having gotten my first 4/5, I must now work hard to obtain... my second 4/5.
So, this game seems to be an amazingly emotional and sweet experience, judging by the descriptions and the screenshots, and for that, I'd really like to play it.

The problem is that the download speed oscillates very weirdly. Sometimes it goes extremely fast, then it goes very slow, and I wonder why... the "remaining time" has already changed from 1 hour to 10 minutes, and then back, in less than five minutes. I've been downloading for about half an hour. Is there a problem with the website?

Thank you, I'm sorry :\

EDIT: Now I got it, and I can't figure out how to use the damn stick :(
The game is hosted on a german server. So it may be that other countries load a bit slower. (I'm not very familiar with that stuff ^.^" )

But you seem to have solved the problem, so I hope you will have fun with the game. :3
I am stuck. I have the stick, fishing line, and lolly ball but none of them will combine and I can't use any of them.
i love this game, but i am stuck on one part :/

in the swamp, below sword in the stone, there should be a little stone (i checked in walkthrough and also found on youtube, but there is nothing in that bush, and i can't click on it or anything. i decided to try moving forward without it, to see if it would maybe work, so i went back to the first map, where there should be a sequence, but nothing happened :/ so i don't really know what to do. there is not that one stone at all u.u

but the game is without doubt really and truly beautiful and amazing ^^

dunno whether should i hide that part above as a spoiler or something, so better not to risk it, i will do it xD
Thank you :3
I'm glad, you like it so far. ❤

There are 3 Maps below the very first one. One directly below. And from there is one to your right and one to your left. Have you been to all of them?
I think I moved the stone to another map... maybe I forgot to update this in the walkthrough. (Sorry .__. )
i think i went everywhere, but when i got stuck i went to walkthrough and then youtube cause i was confused, didn't really think of checking out other places for it, i will now, thanks ^-^
