Mara Ladilli is a sickly university student whose trying to recover from the recent passing of her last family member, her grandmother. In an attempt to achieve a peace of mind she discovers a peculiar red book titled, "Read Story." Events seem to flow as normal. But a stalking shadow seems to indicate otherwise.
What is the story behind this strange red book? Does it have anything to do with the recent string of disappearances? Is it the key to an even darker and more sinister tragedy? It seems that the answers can only be found within its pages. Are you brave enough to find out?
The gameplay mainly focuses on puzzle-solving, exploration, and survival. Most puzzle can be solved by looking around an area and double-checking objects.

Almost there...

Aeco here!

A lot of progress has been made for the game presently:
  • New Maps

  • Remodeled Old maps

  • Fixed Puzzles

  • Replaced old sprites of main characters with new sprites

Just to name a few. However, I do not want to re-upload the game until I
have made significant progress to the game's length and story. The
process is a bit slow...
To expedite this process, I would like to humbly ask,
Please volunteer
I need:
  • Anyone with programming knowledge

  • Sprite and CG artists

  • BETA TESTERS!!!


As of current, I'm working on this project completely out of my own pocket, with
only my commissioned artist yo_roppa helping me out...

Anyways, for now, I'll continue to work faithfully on the game in the
hopes of serving a beautiful and polished story.

Thank you for your continued support!


Sincerely,
Aeco

i was gonna download it but........
.....why is the download 700mb?
Well. That's probably because all I did was compress the game data, and probably because of all the BGMs I have within the game files. Sure, I'm not using all of them, but I honestly don't really have time to remove all the unnecessary ones since I always have the feeling that I might need to use one later on.
I mean, if it bothers you guys that much then I guess I can remove some files to make it smaller.

If you can't be bothered with including only the RTP files you're actually using by yourself, let a script do it for you!

What I've done more recently for VX Ace games is run Tsukihime's resource-checker (with a few edits) and create a self-extracting executable that has the necessary RTP files with it.

*Edit: Yes, a self-extracting executable would be produced via the Compress Data option.
Is the Version 1.02 the complete Version?
Hahaha.... Ah. No. It's still the demo. But I just decided to follow
Frogge's advice up there. I guess people are just more likely to get it
if they think it's complete? (nervous shrug)

That's mean. :(
when do you think it will be complete? i liked the demo :))
Hahaaa. As someone that is making a "horror" game I suppose I must be mean. After all, if I left all the likable and relatable characters to have a happy go lucky life it wouldn't be pretty scary now, would it? >:D
I hope to complete it before 06/16/22, which would be my 25th birthday. Buuuut.. if I do get help from volunteers especially in terms of artists and perhaps some motivation from fans in terms of simple encouragement I believe I could finish it sooner. Perhaps in 2 years or 06/16/19. No promises, however.

Yeah, I meant set it as completed IF it's completed. I thought it was.

It's better not to lie.

If you are interested or know someone that might be, be sure to have them message me on my business email-> thestoryafter.project@gmail.com

Friendly heads-up: You could have appended this post as an edit to the previous one. As a general rule, posting in succession like that is frowned upon, save in cases where it's the Welp forum, or it's after 24 hours since the previous post.
Hello, the "Colors of the World" puzzle is either displaying the wrong numbers, or the mechanics in the game are not acting how they should.

2 Left Orange, 18 Left Red, 3 Right Orange, 7 Down Red, 3 Up Orange, 4 Left Red.

If you follow the orange ones only, nothing happens, if you follow only the red ones nothing happens, if you follow both orange and red instructions nothing happens, if you follow both orange and red instructions excluding the 18 left as that cannot be performed, nothing happens. Either the numbers need to be re-arranged, the mechanics within the game need to change so that they correspond with the numbers shown, or there's a hint that's not visible with the hints given.


EDIT: The darkness area in general is absolutely big & mindbogglingly difficult for any player.

Well, that is because you need to read the shining memo twice. And within the memo you will need to solve the word puzzle to discover the directions you need to go. So green would be "Up" for the directional keys, Orange is "Down", Red is "Right", finally as to not make it too obvious, Blue is the "direction of the heart" and your heart is to your left, so Blue is "Left"
As such the puzzle would translate as 2 down, 18 right, 3 down... etc.
The direction that is written is a red herring to throw you off. And if you ever get lost in the huge expense, you just need to go up and left to the start point.




Mistakes were made...
For the second puzzle for "Colors of the World" instead of the first direction being 7 it is supposed to 6. so please go 12 down rather than 14 down for the second puzzle. The rest remains the same. Thanks.
Watched Flare's playthru of this game. He stopped after getting stuck at the puzzle mentioned above. I want to see what happens, game is pretty interesting and also very funny, but I'm not willing to download an unfinished game to find out, until it is finished. Ah well.
