Rage rage rage I write in bold red text to get attention.


Translated this post into English for all of you.

Geez, cool your jets. It's actually a lot of work to make a game, you shouldn't just go thinking it should be perfect just for you. I was thinking of reporting the comment, but either you're not actually serious or just being mean.
Games that are "Completed" should have been tested A LOT prior releasing the game therefore there should not be any glitches or missing stuff It's not like he had a deadline to rush it like some gaming industries do

Report it for what? being honest? I spent half of my day playing this game and got stuck a lot because I was playing without reading the walkthrough and now I can't advance anymore because he f***** up that's not my fault you know? of course I am dead serious It's not like he has his own website or email to contact him otherwise I wouldn't had registered to post this comment

Sorry If I offended you but the comment was directed to the author of the game not you.

I think it's the fact you were pretty much shouting at the author, insulting the author right at the beginning of your post, using red like that to display how angry and upset you are, and just getting mad over a small problem. It's very hard to make a big game like this and the author tried their best. And the game itself is very good and done well. I'm sure it WAS tested well but no game is perfect and every game can have bugs. But I don't think it was worth getting much more angry than you should have been. The creator of this game does NOT deserve to be cursed and shouted at for a lil bug you're experiencing. The author does NOT deserved to be insulted in the very first sentence and he doesn't need to be told he's screwed up for a lil bug he didn't know about. You're even gettign worked up and getting mad at the author, claiming that they screwed up like it's all their fault. It's just a small problem and the author never screwed up, it's just a small issue. Also, there's a big difference between calmly letting the author know about a bug and getting all worked up and mad about something so small. Plus, making games is hard and it's difficult and you need to understand they're trying their best to make these for everyone to enjoy. Sorry for being more of a pain myself, but I just think if you could have been more calm and more polite about this.
She's been warned guys. Drop it and move on to game talk instead. If she pops back up acting like before then report and it will be dealt with.

Thanks~
First of all, for Katie, I am terribly sorry for what you had been through while playing my game. I tried to check the issue you mentioned but still can't find how it happened but thanks for reporting it and I'll be sure to update if I found the cause.

And for your information, we had done 35 complete run test before posting it and this however, not an easy task. This project is 6 months of our solid hard work and we had dedicated and poured everything we had into this game. Yet, hidden bugs are still exist and slipped from our sight. They are a worst nightmare, not just for me, but for any game developers. Trust me, no one wants bugs in their game, and it was a happiness & joy for any developers to have their games to run smoothly & enjoyed by others til the end.

I would like to say thanks to the rest of members (bow head). Your kind words really heals and cheers me up. I never expected this to happen but I had learnt something valuable from it.

I've just finished this game today. It was nice. I liked the puzzles ( so original :D ) and the story very much. The fact that when there was a dangerous situation you could hear a heartbeat was well thought ;)The maps were nice too. One thing that bothered me were the grammar mistakes. They ruined the mood. Everytime I tried to immerse myself in the story and enjoy it, when I found out some weird spelling everything was ruined. I understand since english is not my first language either, but a proofreader would have been nice. I only got one of the endings and I have no ideea if it was good or bad. Can anyone give me a brief summary of the endings, please? ( thanks :D) Anyway, thank you very much for working on this game. I had fun and I hope to see more projects from you in the future. :) Good luck!

Thanks for your feedback & I am glad you are enjoying it. Yea lot of people commented about the grammar issue which I try to fix in future project (still in progress), I might look for someone to do the proofread as well.

There are 2 possible endings that you could achieved
Good ending. Kana appeared after you got beaten & beg the dollmaker to stop the madness. You saved Ami from the horrible fate, escape from that place together (holding hands). By brief, this means Mamoru had surpassed his weaknesses
& become strong.
P/s : a short scene after the credits shown little sister dolls hovering the cursed doll of Mamoru is just a joke/prank. They thought the doll was him and play with the doll.


Bad ending. You had been defeated. The dollmaker removed your soul into the cursed doll & continue his evil plan (He transferred Ami soul into a doll before taking her heart out). In the end, both Mamoru and Ami were together at last, but as dolls & no longer could convey their feelings to one another.
To get this ending, it was easy. just ignored the last book after defeating killer hood & went into the final room.
I have found a game-breaking bug that may very well ruin all the work and saves you've done. At "DOLLMAKER HOUSE LEVEL 2"'s upstair level, DO NOT PULL THE CURTAIN BY THE WINDOW. If you do so, this'll start
the event in the club room where the creepy face knocks on the window BEFORE YOU EVEN READ THE STORY ABOUT THE DOLLMAKER when it's supposed to activate after doing the puzzle in that room. Of course, if you're professional dodger, you can still dodge the creepy face that has ENTERED INTO THE ROOM ALREADY, and close the curtain thus deleting the creepy face and the event will proceed as normal. HOWEVER, there's still one more problem. After completing the puzzle, the creepy face will not appear but a timer will appear. This will create an unopenable door, and YOU CANNOT PROGRESS ON THAT SAVE BECAUSE THE DOOR WILL BE INFINITELY LOCKED.
. Don't make the mistake where I had to go through the entire game again, back to the club room in order to start playing again. I haven't found a way to fix this bug so just beware of it. Please make a note of this mightydarkchocolate, and sorry for the excessive and strange use of bold. I was slightly angry that I had to waste time replaying the game in order to progress in the game again.

I gonna have to say thanks for you. Now, I am able to found the cause of the bug. and I am sorry for the trouble you have to face. I suggest people keep save file before the entering the club room because I assume one of the Miku duplications had caused this but apparently, not. Now, I will update the blog.

If you read my blog, I had prepared the save file where you will start at point after reading the diary. Once again, thanks. You helped me as well others too!
I just got to the club room and fell victim to the same bug. where is the save file you had made, since I don't see it in the blog tab.
Dear TheCountess, I had removed the download link in the blog since the main cause of the problem had been discovered and I wish people will read the blog first to avoid it from happens. But the good news, I haven't deleted the save file yet so here it is :
http://www.mediafire.com/download/73265ea0zeydu1m/Save4.rar

By the way, taking this chance while replying to the noted problem, I want to say thank you x 1000 for people who played this game, people who subscribe it, as well others who did Lets Play on Youtube. I am really enjoy watching them all! You guys are awesome! Apart from the fun, it also helps me to learn the good and bad points of my own game for future references. XD

By the way, I hope you don't mind to give my newest game a try. The puzzles are more challenging, more grind & it had different gameplay mechanics. It takes place right after Ningyo heart event and several months after Ten Tales. So you might meet some kind of 'crossover' between the characters.
I had downloaded quite a few games in one night to play ^^; plus it was a while ago as I had computer issues and then surgery to go through. I started the game last night and when that happened is when I came on here and made an account to see what went wrong. Thank you very much for the file.

The game overall is wonderful! I actually yelped a few times while I was playing it in the dark. I read over some of the comments, and yes, your translation is a little rough but it is still coherent and understandable. And it doesn't have glitches like getting stuck in the wall or frozen sprites like Lakewood Story. Your English is better than that game too.

:D Oh? I'd love to. I'll check it out once I finish Ningyo Heart! ^^ Thank you

I should be the one to say thank you for your kind words, patience and most of all, for taking time to play my game & giving feedbacks about it! & I'm glad you are enjoying it too! XD
God, this looks freaking awesome! Why did I not hear of this yet? Yissss I'm gonna play the crap out of it!
Hi !

I have a little problem ... there is no sound when I play the game :( I mean, nowhere : the title screen, the flashbacks, the school... nothing. Do you know where this could come from ?

And the sound isn't mute on my computer, I checked x)

Hmmm...I got suggestion, first, when you run the game, press F1 button, the game properties box will pop on your screen, then check the ''Play BGM Sounds....'' section & check the sound option & enabled it. Then press the F1 again and the game sound is fixed now.

i generally find horror games meh but this one actually had a great plot set up
giving not only character depth but a logical(not plot device) reason for the MC being there

i found no glitches
but the grammar could be improved to make the experience a bit better

i loved the puzzles in the game they were well done and had the player think a little
but not give them a headache at any point with unreasonable requests(for me anyway)
//
Random thoughts
-lots of broken/awkward english
-Game breaking bug, DONT USE THE LETTUCE
-why...couldn't you find the need b4 she...makes no sense.
-puppet room,when you interact with them they should not face you
-its extremely stupid that your character says they dont need the piano key right now so you dont take it
-potions in puppet masters room need work visually,some even change after reading the book.
-why cant your character handle soem dolls?he is even a fighter with 550 hp and a sword skill!
-where in the fing hell is the item you need to give to the guy so you dont suffer!?(i know what it is)

EDIT
with a second playthru im quite content
but 2 things i dont know...

1.where is the rose to give the guy???please tell me that info is not pointless to the player(yeah it comes up in the piano room but that's irrelevant to you)

2.in the room with the coffin,what item do you put in the top left corner?i looked really hard ad found nothing else....


As im not expecting a response soon please send the reply as a pm to me
thank you

Hi! Thanks Shayoko for making a playthrough media for my game! I'll answers the main question first regarding the red rose & the bloodied hand print where you suppose to put something on it. These 2 things were connected to each other & actually, it was one of the 2 hidden secrets mentioned in front age : The Kana secret. It is up to you either you wish to unlock the secret or not since it will not affect the ending but still can be a nice reward for people who want to try.

To get Kana secret, find red rose & give it to Ichirou. Where to find it? well...


Give it to Ichirou when he asked you to 'pay' for his help. Once, done continue the game & retrieve your reward from this area & tadaa! Put it back on the bloodied handprint to open a nice story of Kana. (Yeah, don't asked why it was there. All thanks to my team member who decide to make Kana's secret is hard to be revealed.)


If you have missed Kana's secret, there is a chance to unlock doll maker's secret. Say, when you are asked to pay Ichirou's debt (Not giving him the rose.) you will ended up get beaten & tied up in a chair moment later where he wants to slice your chest open. Once you 'beat' him, take the doll maker family potrait on the wall before went out from the trap room. Goes to place you face redpunzel previously where you will notice another bloodied handprint on the wall & use the potrait to uncover a hidden room.

np

: O i actually had a small thought there may of been a secret related to that but i thought it was ridiculous and noone would do such a thing :3
kudos on that its a nice treat to have hard to find secrets in games!
im sad i didn't find it because i decided to go with logic over chance :3
but cool stuff :3
thx for the reply : D
I'm running a playthrough of this on my youtube channel and I have to say. It's really fun. I love it.
