The download link doesn't seem to be working, so since Bishop is probably still asleep right now, I've posted temp links for the Windows, Mac and Linux versions on my blog:

Should be working now. Sorry about that.

I got stuck after a while (after Edgard boards) - whatever I do (I'm pretty sure I've tried every possible option) , game still hangs in the same state.
I took a quick look at the source to see what's there - nice little game, although not exactly my cup of tea.
Overall: quite good entry with nice art.

Gack, I was afraid of that. There's probably a specific state you can end up in that makes it impossible to trigger the advancing scenes. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to test for them, but I plan to work on it in the coming days.

Still, thanks for playing!

Certainly not my kind of game, but the art is solid. I'll pass this along to my friends that dig this sort of thing.

Both the graphics and the audio are excellent. However, I got stuck at the same place as Shigor and couldn't go further. And not I want to know what happens!! The mood was perfect, perfect!

The filedropper link give me a headache. You should have put the dropbox one up.

Aww, stuck just like Shigor and summaky. Really want to know how the story progress. The writing, graphic, and music are excellent, though you could use more variations in the bg images.
