Storyline:

After her sister Bertha's death, Lucia Nicol is struggling to follow her footsteps. She becomes a self-centered person who will do anything to replace Bertha's position in her family. Her actions made her schoolmates to loathe and bully her, thus leading to an unexpected event. One by one, the schoolmates who bullied her were attacked and suddenly she became the main suspect. After those events, she found out that she was able to see people who can’t be seen by “normal” people, and uncover the dark, insane truth of an entity called “Doppelganger”. Her life is suddenly in danger, and those people she normally trusts suddenly don’t look so kind any more…

 

Play as Lucia as you struggle to escape your fate; dying or living a life where you will certainly wish you are dead…

- Over 260.000 words and 5+ hours of total gameplay

How to extract:

Download WinRAR from the RAR Lab website : http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

Double-click on the downloaded file to open the WinRAR installation window. Press "Install."

Select "RAR" in the Associate WinRAR With menu.

Click "OK" and choose "Done" to complete the installation.

Place all of your RAR files into one folder.

Double-click on the RAR file with the smallest number. In most cases this will be filename0.rar or filename1.rar. All of the RAR files will merge in the extraction into a single file.

Another option is to right-click the RAR file and choose either "Extract Here," which will extract the file to the folder containing the RARs or "Extract to (filename)," which will extract the merged file to a separate folder inside the folder containing the RARs.

 

How to play in other OS:

Install renpy 6.14

Put the extracted game folder in your renpy folder

Launch game using renpy

Congratulations!

 

Here's to praying that my computer don't crap a brick when I play this one.

 

My computer keeps on crashing on games made with the new Ren'py build lately, and I really don't feel like staying up late in school just to play the game.

The plot's certainly interesting and I like the opening sequnce, but it seems like there aren't enough spots to make choices. It seems like 15-30 minutes can go by without ever making a choice. There are some spots where it seems like you SHOULD be able to make a decision, but you can't.

I think it's just a matter of preference. A lot of the Japanese VNs actually roll that way. The story's options come very few and far between. Every single darned choice is very important and that's pretty much the challenge of the game. You won't know where you went wrong.

 

It's really hard to put in too much options without sacrificing the character's personality in return.

 

Let's say the situation is "Oh no, this exam is hard!" A character with very strong sense of honesty would not even consider cheating an option. It may occur to them to cheat, but they wouldn't do it no matter what. So the developers shouldn't put a "to cheat or not" choice. A character who doesn't care that much about being honest would consider cheating as an option, and then it's fine to put the choice in.
