Inu No Ongaeshi - Shmarah - 48 Hour Compo Entry
A short visual novel made with Ren'py that has 2 bad endings and 2... endings.
Somewhat based off of the Japanese folk story, "Tsuru no Ongaeshi," also known as "The Crane Wife."
In "Inu no Ongaeshi," you play a lonely freelance writer, if, with your lack of motivation, you can even call yourself that. One morning, you meet an injured dog in the forest- rather, a dog girl. A magical, evolving, speed-writing, food-conjuring, future seeing dog girl.
Good luck with that.
More of a story than it is a game, in how I approached writing it and how it plays. (Hence the term visual novel.) Unfortunately, I don't actually like the plot as a story; it feels a bit cliche. Forgive me. ;;;

This is my first Ludum Dare at the age of 14. I hope you enjoy the game.
