    Let Me Save You! Your Faithful Companion - Nyaa - Competition Entry

    You're given plenty of things in this game, including Cornelia. But whether she stays with you depends on what you do...

    Unzip the file, then start "ld20.exe" to play :)

    Source code: included in the folder as script.py
    Tools: Sibelius First, Audacity, Synthfont, Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CS, Ren 'Py.
    Size/Scope: 12 MB download, play time 5-10mins (unless you like staring at semi-naked anime babes, in which case, longer XD)

    My first Ludum Dare. As I only started learning Ren 'Py 5 days prior to the competition, apologies if things aren't perfect.

    Bug/errors reported:
    Lady Gigi saying "receipt" rather than "recipe" - coincidentally, not such a bad typo, as receipt is an old English word for recipe! XD
    Older ATI graphics drivers crash - http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2011/05/04/older-ati-drivers-and-renpy/
    ADDED LINK in case of Windows Computers with old ATI drivers (bug in Ren'Py 6.12.0e, not my fault! Same game but in Ren'Py 6.12.15, read the post for more info)

    You really did include boobies. Thanks for that. I'll check out the OSX Port tonight and will give you feedback with that.

    As a girl I couldn't really judge the boobs but I loved the pony.

    Man you deserve those points. Great visuals, great music, great boobies. Oh yes I like boobies. Okay, those pixels in the end .. ugh.. but hey, everybody screws up at times.
    It was fun while it lasted. Will show this one off with my coworkers.

    I don't think anyone has ever done anything quite like this for a ld48 before. I thought it was fun, and the writing was amusing.

    Good job on the story, music and the awesome art.

    Classic story choice system, but it was really fun ^^ I loved all the RPG mock references !

    You were right, it does look dirtier!

    May 4, 2011 @ 2:54am

    I guess sex really does sell!

    Congrats on clearing the LD48. :)

    What everyone wants in a game; Boobs. But it comes to a price, do not lie!! (and thats for real, ya?)

    Great little game! ^^

    Silly with gratuitous sexiness. Good stuff.

    May 5, 2011 @ 12:00am

    Very well written, thanks for the laugh ! Also, nice work on getting all that music composed in the short time span (in addition of the pretty good graphics).

    nice music and excellent graphics

    I am dazzled, astonished, and entirely in awe.

    The graphics are beautiful, and I don't just mean the boobies. The music is nicely put together and it fits. The dialogue is well written and funny. There is a surprising abundance of all three of these things. I am completely amazed that you managed to put all this together in 48 hours.

    The use of the theme isn't exactly startlingly original, the story is entirely predictable, and it's full of cliches, but in light of all the rest I really don't care.

    The pony is pretty. This game is highly impressive.

    Very funny. I'm impressed that you got this all done in 48 hours. That's a lot of boobies/music/writing/boobies for 2 days.

    Very funnny, not at all only a "OMG BOOBIES"-thing, very funny dialog, great visuals, great music, great multivisual textadventure

    Congratulations on completing your 1st LD - especially the music! Happy Birthday too! XD

    Loved the music, and the graphics are super impressive for 48 hours.

    Impressive, tons of graphics and quality music for 48 hours. The game structure isn't that special, but the good writing, boobies and production values do keep it afloat.

    May 12, 2011 @ 2:58pm

    This one really has /all/ the clichees, including the completely generic music themes and the completely pre-defined story. It's quite impressive in that way.

    haha! I loved the latin!

    Visual awesomeness and a quite nice writeup :)
    Very well done! I got a pixelated ending. I always thought someone else is pixelating over the original authors bits ;)

    A plethora of highly detailed hand-drawn art, several tracks of fitting music, a humorous adventure with a tongue-in-cheek approach to the classic RPG story. And boobs!

    Albeit not thought-provoking I hate to admit I was drawn into the story; if only for the boobs.

    And boobs.

    ... nevermind. Excellent entry! Looking forward to the next one :)

    That's rather well done. Drawings are a bit rude :P

    This crashes for me on startup on Windows Vista, even the ATI version. :(

    Haha, I think we had the same Latin textbook! xD
