But I can't do this anymore.
It's not your fault,
and there was nothing you could've done for me.
There's nothing you could've done about 'her'."

The RMXP RTP may be necessary to play the game. If you get an error along the lines of "RTP not found" please let me know so I can try to fix it again. Thanks!

Alternatively, if you encounter the "RGSS-RTP Standard not found." error when opening the game, all you need to do is opening the Game.ini file and delete the "Standard" in the "RTP1=" line.

Dear Mariko: Crimson - Released!



After a year, Dear Mariko: Crimson, the pay-what-you-want version has been released, thanks very much to the efforts of @baka-baru, who graciously helped with the game! This version has brand new character and CG art, and an additional short playable epilogue with 4 endings, shedding a little light on the overarching story as a whole, as a stinger towards a future game.

Feel free to think of this extension as a 'tip-jar' of sorts for everyone who has enjoyed the free games I have made so far. All proceeds will partly go to the lovely @baka-baru and to the development of Mica: Apoptosis. Everyone who has donated to Dear Mariko before Crimson's release will get a complimentary copy - just shoot me an email at coren.baili@gmail.com. Please do send all bug reports to that email as well. Thank you all once again for your support!

The Free version includes:
* The full main story
* 3 endings
* 3 CGs

The Crimson version ($0.50 or more) includes:
* Brand new character and CG art
* An additional epilogue
* Double the gameplay
* 7 endings

I got the normal ending. Can you tell me how to get the other two please :)?
I'd love to make a let's play video if that's ok with you.

Thanks for playing! :) For the other two, don't leave, and hang around the house and explore a bit more. And yes, you're very welcome to do a let's play video!
When I try to hit "start", a massage always pops up and says "Could not find Graphics/Tilesets/001-Grassland01". What should I do?
Oh silly me... Guess I must've forgotten something, haha. Give me a second to fix the bug and upload a new version!
Alright, the current version should work just fine, let me know if it doesn't. :) Also, I'd love if someone could check it and let me know if it runs just fine without the RTP!

Massage? OH my god best typo ever XD

The game was very good. Considering how short it was, it still had a lot of charm in it.
The ending twist made me go like
OH MY GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWD!
The images were very well made too.
I also liked how when you chose to read a book it would show one of your games' name.
Here's my playthrough. Hope you enjoy:

Now when I try to hit "start", a window comes up that says "Unable to find Graphics/Tilesets/001-Grassland01."
Is there anything I can do ?
When I try to hit "start", a message always pops up and says "Unable to find file Graphics/Autotiles/001-G_Water01.". What should I do?

Maybe you don't have the rtp?
It did work for me, I don't understand why it didn't work for anyone else..
Thanks for playing!

If you don't have the RTP, please download the new version I just uploaded. :) Hopefully it should work!

That is strange. Did you get the exact same error message?
Update: Found the pesky bug. Here's to hoping this is the last time I have to compress the game for today... ^^; If you try downloading again, it should work this time :)

Sorry for saying this but now the message "Unable to find file Graphics/Autotiles/001-G_Water01"

Have you tried downloading the latest version (1.0d)? :) That should be fixed.

Yes I have and this message comes up :/
Ok, I've uploaded one and I think it's *finally* fixed. So sorry for leading you on this silly wild goose chase :P Let me know if there are anymore problems!
I get that error too and I just downloaded version d. I have to wait 20 mins before I can re-download.

EDIT: Will try version e when I can

Also, on the title screen having up/down move the cursor left/right, but left/right doing nothing is really weird.

Yeah, I noticed that too, heh. ^^; I'm not too sure how to fix it right now, but hopefully I'll find it eventually. For now, to scroll through the menu, you need to use the up/down keys and not the left/right ones.
