Hi I can't seem to play this game; after downloading Desura and clicking on download after installation, it gives me an error about being unable to validate the files?

Sorry for taking a while to answer!

This seems like it might be a Desura problem. The game does run as a standalone though so you can download it from here Indiedb.com without running it through Desura. Let me know if you have any other issues :)

Hello!
I have a problem with this game(Linux 64bit, nVidia 6100, graphics driver installed) - it's very slowly! How can I fix it?

Sorry for such a delay in answering!

Unfortunately we don't have access to Linux to troubleshoot the problem, so I'm going to have to do a little digging around to see if I can find the answer. Sorry I can't be more useful.

I honestly would have loved to have paid for this game, as odd as that may sound. By the way, is the soundtrack available anywhere? Whoever was responsible for that did incredibly well. Would love to get my hands on it.

I couldn't really understand what this game is about... Guess they could improve that about the game's presentation, that could say more to players in pontential.
Well, since it's free I'll give it a try.

Is there something in the summary that's unclear for you?

Nope. Probably just me. I guess it will take me sometime to just accept the concept of visual novel.

I'm walking into this coming off of Katawa Shoujo (another game created from RenPy) which was awesome and very well written. I've got some expectations for this title so I'm anxious to see how it lives up to them.

I'm not going to have a chance to get into it tonight but I generally get excited by RenPy projects. That non-stop thing is what I went though with KS except it lasted about a month simply because it was THAT deep and THAT good. I'm hoping RA does that for me too.

KS was also my first step into the genre, but sadly I found that most of other games can't live up to it's level. As for RA - the narrative is quite good as far as I see it, but technically the game lacks a bit (e.g. proper gamepad controls - the genre is console native so most ppl will expect to play with a gamepad without touching the mouse+keyboard). The drawing style will also not necesarilly please everyone, but that's a subjective matter. I'll probably write a short review when I finish RA.

Anyway, I can't honestly say that this is as good as KS, but RA is nice either way.

Well-executed and creative subversion of the otome vn genre. A must read if you're looking for something that breaks the mold.

In my opinion the story is too much of a (boring) soap opera (even the post prologue part of it). Though the game's name already suggests, it's all about love, it could have been less borrowing the cliche. Furthermore there are too little real choices, so playing this game is all about reading and tapping your space key to get on reading, which becomes quite annoying over time. Due to this, replaying the prologue part by taking other choices, wasn't as much fun as hoped for, because you have to…
