    Seems like Laplacian delivers Would be nice to see this published on the west as well; just like Newrin, it has that sweeping potential to be of relevance to western fans.
  2. I'm a huge fan of those. Your game looks nice and I see a lot of effort being put into everything. Sadly, there seems to be not much that could actually interest me enough to even give it a try. If you're willing to listen to feedback, let me tell you this. One of the biggest pet peeves of the industry is that monster girls genre relies too much on fetishism and erotic content, instead of trying to tell stories. I'd say 90% of games and vns including monster girls are typically rpgs or rpg maker porn games and it became stale years ago. I don't mind them being fetish fuel (it's only understandable from such perspective) and there's nothing wrong with porn either, but it's about time devs should try to actually start telling interesting stories, or at least try to incorporate those into the gameplay. Old folks like me get bored with the same exact thing being done over and over again. I'd like to see more games, that bring something new to the table. I think monster girls are an interesting subject for fantasy-based stories, which could discuss interracial relationships, racism and prejudice or even practical outcomes from such beings existing alongside other races (obviously, we're talking about us - humans - most of the time). It's definitely something that gives a lot of space and freedom for really interesting tales to be told and more or less - something I truly root for.

    Better go back up Island instead.

    If you only care about visual novels, you might as well get used parts and build a second gen i7 pc. most of that hardware comes dirt-cheap at the moment and despite the age gap, still handles very well. It's because after the Nehalem revolution, modern cpu's haven't really changed much since then; every new generation shrinks in size and pushes up to 8-15% more performance, but the tech alone was a huge jump from anything previously available. Coupled with a decent GPU, you wouldn't really have problems running even the newest games on those, if you'd ever like. 2600k and something like 1050ti would be perfectly fine for budget gaming in 1080p and you can always opt to overclock for a considerable performance boost. I have a new top-of-the-line PC with 8700k and an over 10 year old pc with oc'ed q6600, which I was still using daily not so long ago. I had no problems running anything on that old quad (it worked paired with 750ti first, swapped later for 1050ti), least vns. Even something like Q9400 should be okay now and you can literally build yourself a working PC for a silly amount of money, although socket 755 is becoming obsolete due to it's limitations (mainly RAM - only 8GB max, it's difficult to get your hands on such large RAM sticks).
  10. Which gaming laptop you prefer and why?

    Anything from MSI. Laptops aren't for gaming.
  11. Island

    Took a while longer than expected, but here it is - a fully polished walkthrough/guide for Frontwing's Island. I hope this guide will help everyone enjoy Island to the fullest without being forced to hunt for bad endings or getting stuck. It's a fantastic visual novel and real treat for fans of science fiction. As usual - if you have suggestions or found any mistakes or typos - drop me a note and I'll be sure to fix everything.

    ISLAND VNDB: https://vndb.org/v18498 BUY on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/857450/ISLAND/ Summary Urashima is a small island, far from mainland Japan. It’s a true utopia, blessed with rich natural beauty. But the island harbors a difficult past, and it’s about to be erased, silently, from history. Soot blight syndrome, an endemic disease, has brought about a rift between the island and the mainland. An offshore platform intended for marine research has long been left abandoned; five years ago, three separate incidents brought the once influential Three Families of Urashima to near ruin. Rumors about children being spirited away have become part of the local folklore, alongside another legend, one that has been repeated on the island since time immemorial... “Let me tell you the legend of this island: it’s a story of tragic love...” The key to saving the island lies with three girls, each of whom belongs to one of the Three Families. These girls aren’t able to change the fate of the island by themselves, but might they succeed with the help of the young man who’s just washed ashore? Claiming that he’s traveled back in time, the man immediately sets out on a lonely path, challenging the longstanding traditions of the island, and seeking to change the future. But those aren’t his only goals... How will his presence transform the lives of these three girls, the future of the island, and the fate of the world...? [From official website] General Info Similar to G.O.'s previous works (Himawari), Island is a science fiction multiple route mystery with a fixed progression order. Your own enjoyment from the game will greatly depend whether you're capable of piecing together the fragments on the way to discover the truth. Despite being an all-ages title, Island is choke heavy on sexual humor (called shimoneta in japanese) and adult themes, including sexual content; explicit erotic content is simply not shown on-screen. Story discusses topics such as death and rebirth, loss of beloved ones, family, responsibility for your own actions and a variety of science fiction related subjects, such as time travel, many worlds theory, astrophysics, genetics, spirituality, philosophy, human psychology and history of mankind. Most of the topics are entry-level, which makes Island a perfect choice for beginners willing to delve deeper into more story-oriented visual novels. Overall Ending Guide It is possible to actually chose between Karen and Sara during your first playthrough, but I'd highly advise to chose Karen, since her route acts as an excellent introduction to the story and it's setting, without being as convoluted or cryptic as Sara's. Island contains many alternate endings (The so called BAD ENDS, although they aren't inherently bad by default - only few are tragic). Majority of them are story-based (non "game over" titles, where the protagonist typically just dies). Those endings need to be cleared in order to progress the story beyond certain points. Rinne's route becomes available only after you clear both Karen's and Sara's routes. True End becomes available only after clearing the remaining bad ends and obtaining Rinne's ending. The overall recommended progression order is as follows: SUMMER [Common -> Karen (restart) -> Sara (restart) -> Rinne] -> WINTER -> MIDSUMMER [Rinne End -> True End] This guide follows the above mentioned order, unlocking all alternate endings (BAD ENDS) along the way. Endings Aside from four main endings (Karen, Sara, Rinne and True End), there are total thirteen alternate endings available in-game (twelve for the SUMMER and one for the MIDSUMMER). Don't worry about obtaining them, since you will see them all in a fixed order, provided you follow this guide. The BAD ENDINGS' names are as follows (within their chronological order): Walkthrough Info: All the saves are meant to be done during choices. The total number of saves used in this guide equals 16 and allows you to 100% clear the entire game. Save states in red are meant only for collecting BAD ENDS. You can skip those, if you prefer the trial & error approach. Regardless, this guide assumes you have them all cleared where it's needed. Save states in blue are used for progression and remain the only ones you should be concerned about in general. We will be using those to jump quickly to required scenes without being forced to repeat large portions of story. "Your choice" means that no matter what you chose, you're not making the wrong choice. Answers are merely kept to ease guidance. If you're lost or unsure, don't forget about the in-game flowchart! you can access it any time from the main menu and it can also be used to jump between already cleared scenes, similar to loading save states.

    Already working on it. If I'll manage, it should be out in a couple hours. edit: Took a bit longer than expected, but here it is:

    Seiya Saiga has one that covers everything nicely. I remember there's another one already available on Steam as well. I was actually considering creating a slightly expanded version for Fuwanovel.
