The Milu

by ayame9joe - Jam Entry

It is a text-based game, but I'd rather call it short game stories.

The girl and her daddy use a telescope trying to find the milu, but the things they talk about seems to more important.

If Story A is too long and meaningless for you, Story B is more colorful thanks to Humble Ray - that is why I used nearly all animation resource and9 done for me in it.

Thanks to Lieve Oma and Three Fourths Home for inspiration.


Put Mouse around the telescope to move it.
And click to continue the dialogue.

Bug Warning:

The pictures in the telescope don't work well now.

Where is the room?
It's... in the loading scene?

Excellent graphics, sweet and lovely mood. It's nice to find such interesting, mellow and introspective experiences in a jam.

Lovely narrative! It's a shame the telescope is on the buggy side, and I think that's why it got stuck for me. I love the graphics, and overall calming atmosphere set by the music.

No you actually can't get stuck in this game... you just need to play longer. But yes, it is buggy... Maybe I'll fixed it this weekend?

Loved the art and the music but the telescope was buggy and I couldn't recognize the theme in the game

Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere with excellent graphics and music. I can ignore the telescope bug by reading the lovely stories. :)

The artwork in this is very nice, and it has a very relaxing feel to it. Unfortunately the translation is holding it back for me: There was a line near the start of the English version which hadn't been translated, and there were quite a few strange word choices (can't say I've ever heard someone use the phrase "a fit of pique" before). I wish I was able to play it in the original language; I don't think I was able to appreciate the effort that went into the writing having only played the translation.
