wow, just wow. Thanks to those who gave guro warnings--it wasn't unbearable (and blissfully separated from the h scenes) but it definitely turned my stomach at points. Guro aside, the story was amazing, and my mind has officially shattered into tiny pieces, having played through the whole game in the last four hours or so. Super-props to the translation team over at tsukuru wiki, I'm very glad to have finally played through this game. Maybe some day I'll actually learn moon runes and play more. -_-;

Is their supposed to be Japanese text & Englis htext? Is it just because it's a Release Canidate? I see alot of Japanese text still..

I haven't really played it through yet, kinda preoccupied with things, but I think it's just in the beginning or something incomprehensible for the main character since all his senses are distorted. Don't exactly know what the original one looked like either.

If you mean at the beginning of the game, I assume that it was left that way, because the dialogue at that point was supposed to show that the monsters didn't have human voices. The Japanese text is jumbled with random numbers and English letters in the non patched version, too. After playing the beginning of the game, I didn't see any other Japanese characters in the text. If that's your case, I can only assume that it's a problem with the patch.

I may be wrong, though <_<

I thought it was something along these lines, the more i played, that is. Pretty fucked up stuff, though.

Ugh...

I just finished this game within like...an hour and a half? MAYBE two? That's SO short. I only got one ending, but even a different choice would probably not end up that different...


Overall, I felt like it was JUST getting interesting - and then it ended. Perhaps the last two endings will explain it all. I had heard it was 4 hours...but maybe that's for slow readers.

Everything you guys asked I answered in the first post...

"Other two endings"

By process of deduction, you'd have to assume that means I've got one already. Hence, all three endings.


Also the fact it ended so abruptly would assume it was the first choice, of removing the disorder. Yes, I did save, and I'm doing another route right now. It's longer, for sure, but still, 3 hours is very short for a VN.

I was confused by the fact that you said a different choice probably would not have ended up that differently, as the latter two endings are much more similar than the first one, which is obviously different. Claiming you've finished Saya no Uta after that first ending is like claiming you finished F/SN after getting a bad end on day 7.

That said, yeah it's a short game. I think I finished it in about four hours.

moral of the story: Beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder 0.0
quite good story, though im still waiting for the h-scene with the mad doctor... T.T
"...One must wait continuously, one must pursue endlessly.
They must realize that it was impossible to succeed yet
at the same time be capable of enduring patiently.
Is that... the story of a dream that shouldn't be waited upon?..."

For some reason when I try to play the game, the script looks all weirded out. I tried doing what they said on the website, but I cant even run the game through applocale!


What do i do?

This is the problem that shows up when I try to play the game on Applocale or Japanese Locale

maybe try renaming your game folder to something english. moon runes in folder/file names often screw everything up on non-native japanese systems.

also you sure you have the english patch installed? i don't see the cg folder, which comes with the patch.
