I downloaded it, but when i try to extract the files, it says the following:

"The compressed (zipped) folder is empty. Before you can extract files, you must coy files to this compressed (zipped) folder."



I love the game! I'm glad you made it :D

Once i downloaded it i could not find out how to open the game.......help anyone?


Try clicking the Application game and extract it all while you set it up to literally download itself. After the download, a picture thing would appear as the game and you can play! And um. . . Does that make any sense? I'm sorry but I hope it helped so you won't miss out the fun! :D


Amazing game, stunning visuals, and a compelling story! So glad I found this :)

it won't let me download it

I have windows, and it won't let me download it. Please help me out.


hi, sorry you're having trouble. can you please tell me what it says when you try to download it? you mean you can't get the file from itch.io?

This was great fun. I loved Danganronpa and ugh, I was so happy to have found a fanmade visual novel. I had to record it for my channel and went both routes.The Dankest Visual Novel


This is perfection. Ive never been so excited to play a visual novel game before. I was fangirling so hard, i cant even breathe properly.

Just checking out the content real quick - sharing for the curious. :)

This was beautiful, I honestly loved it. The art and writing are amazing and both Hinata and Komaeda are really in character. It was really amazing! I'm in love with your works. <3
