This game is about a person who kept running through his life, never looking back at the past. He rarely slept, and even with 24 hours in a day, it was not enough for him. Once during a trip, he gets into trouble. Now he's lying on the cold ground, buried beneath his bicycle. Slides of various moments fly through his head. Will his memories return? Will he be able to stand up again? You must help him. You have about 630 beats of the heart to restore his past. Good luck! - Opportunity to tell a man by his memories - Unique game genre "Game-Photo album" - User-friendly interface - Game will be finished in 10 minutes 30 seconds anyway - 8 different endings (4 good / 4 bad)

Why is there no direct download for this game? I would like to install and play it without using the Desura client, but, where there is usually a link to the files, there is nothing.

That's very strange because game was written on clear MS Visual Studio without any plugins or etc. So basically it must work on every Windows with standart .NET drivers installed (everyone have them).
As possible solution - we released an iPad version of "Retention" and it's available for free at Apple AppStore. Maybe if you have an iPad device - you could play it there. Sorry for that strange Windows problems with original game :(

I enyjoyed your game, thank you for it. Also I've written a small review for my Czech website about indie games here:
Nezavislehry.cz
My only complaints are about length of the game and maybe there could be a little more interactivity (like multiple paths...). I am looking forward for your next game :)
