FAQ よくある質問

Why don’t the characters move much, like in other visual novel games?
In order to keep the game free, only free resources (or as low-cost as possible) have been used. This includes vast use of Creative Commons communities. The artists who drew the characters did so before this game was made (which means it’s also likely that you’ll see them in other free visual novel games online). This means that character poses and positions were down to the artists themselves when they first created the sprites (characters). Though all of the characters can emote through their faces, only Wayne has different body positions. His sprite (known as Genki, and available here) actually has another pose that didn’t get used in the game. Any other character modifications were done with the artists permission (for example Michelle’s hair).

キャラクターは、他のビジュアルノベルのようにそんなに動かないね。どうしてですか?
このゲームを無料で公開するために、ただの(又はできるだけ安い)資源が作られたのです。クリエイティブ・コモンズのコミュが良く作られました。キャラクターを描いた画家は、このゲームが作られた前に描きました(つまり他の無料ビジュアルノベルで出る可能性がある)。スプライト(キャラクター)のポーズなどは画家の描きたい感じによって描かれました。キャラクターがみんな気持ちと考え方を顔で表すことができるものの、Wayne君が一人だけ違うポーズがあります。彼のスプライト(本名は「ゲンキ」)は、実はポーズがもう一つがありますが、このゲームでは出ません。他のキャラクター変更は画家の許可によってされました(例Michelleちゃんの髪)。

How many different endings are there?
There are a total of 20 different endings. Some good, some not so good.

違う終わりがいくつですか?
20個です。よい終わり、良くない終わりもあります。

What do the passwords mean?
The passwords are your proof that you reached a certain ending. I used the first version of this game for one of my classes and gave out challenges are reaching different endings.

パスワードってどんな意味を持っていますか。
終わりに到着したという証拠です。始めてこのゲームを授業で使ったとき、違う終わりに到着したら生徒がシールを貰ったことのようなチャレンジで使いました。

What program was used to make this?
To make the game I mainly used a program called Ren’Py. You don’t need to know a lot (if any, to be honest) programming languages to use it, it’s a really simple program. As for images, characters were done by different artists (you can see them on the credits page) as well as backgrounds by different photographers. I did use photoshop on most of the backgrounds, though.

何のソフトウェアエンジンで作られましたか。
Ren’Pyというフリーソフトウェアエンジンでプログラムされました。本当に使いやすいソフトで、プログラムの言語が分からなくてもいいほどです。描いたものや写真は、違う人が作りました、撮りました(詳しくはクレジットページ)。背景の写真はフォトショップを使いました。

How long did it take to make?
I started working on the story on the 29th of August 2012, and had a completed version by 5th March 2013. I’m still working on an audio version, and hope to have that completed by the end of May (2013).

ゲームを作るのはどの位かかりましたか。
話を書き始めたのは2012年8月29日で、完成版を出来上がったのは2013年3月5日でした。まだオーディオ版を作っています。(2013年の)5月末までに完成するのを望んでいます。

How to I reach ending number~?
It’s still too early to give out hints, don’t you think? Keep your eye on the spoiler page though.

終わりの~番にできませんが・・・
ヒントを出すのがまだ早いでしょうか。でも、ネタばれのページでそろそろ発表しようと。

    I was just wondering, what microphone or recording device did you use to record the voices? Some renpy games have choppy sounds because of lack of a good speaker, and I was thinking of making a renpy game with voices too, and I took note on how well the voices were, especially so for a free game. So, if it’s not too much to ask, would you mind telling me what you recorded with? Thanks for your time! 🙂

      Hi Kiera,
      As we all recorded out lines in different places I’m not entirely sure what equipment everyone used. I’d recommend asking the VAs (the links are on the credits page), although maybe that info is on their websites.
      For the spy character, I used a Samsung Meteor Mic.
