Press X to Not Die by All Seeing Eye Games is an interactive live-action adventure. You play the protagonist in the movie yourself, make decisions, and try to stay alive. The whole thing is deliberately trashy and in the style of a B-movie. The game is ridiculous, funny, bloody, and full of crazy moments.
“You wake up to find your town in chaos. Everyone has gone crazy and is just attacking each other! A cryptic message is the secret to survival– Press X to not die!”
Discover the ways to die, different scenes, and insane characters. Now also available with German subtitles!

As of now, you will find all of my games on itch.io. This has several advantages for me, but also for you. For me it’s easier to upload all games there and keep them updated. (Furthrmore, I don’t have to overload my Dropbox.) And you can always download the latest version of my games.
If you really liked a game or if you just want to support me, you can give me a “tip” on itch.io; the games will still be free, though.
All visual novels have been updated again so thanks to the latest Ren’Py version, they should run more smoothly and be more compatible. I have also fixed some small things. Have fun reading!

The story: “In 2057, an astronaut finds a strange Black Cube in Space, and is teleported onto a mysterious spaceship called the Ark. You soon discover that he’s not the first astronaut from planet Terra to arrive here: Philip Forte lived through the very same experience in 2011 and, fortunately, left a diary explaining his story. With this help, you visit the Ark, with one single goal in mind: getting back home!”
The game is available here on Steam. Besides my German translation, the game is also available in English, French, Italian, and Spanish. Good luck solving the puzzles!
Forward to the Sky is a mix of action adventure and jump and run by AnimuGame. It’s certainly worthwhile for people who like the genre, with varied levels, colorful anime art, and excellent voice acting.

Lost Echo is a point-and-click adventure by KickBack Studios for iOS and Windows Phone. I translated the game into German and the new version with the German localization is already available for iPhone and iPad. In the game, you have to solve puzzles, investigate places, and interact with people in order to find Greg’s girlfriend Chloe.
“In the near future Greg’s girlfriend Chloe mysteriously disappears in front of him. He starts a desperate search for her. What happened? Why does no-one else remember her?”
Lost Echo is set in a futuristic world and the places are gorgeous to look at. Also, the soundtrack fits perfectly to the futuristic setting. Check out the game, you can buy it for $2,99 on the AppStore! There is also going to be an epilogue at some point, which I’ll probably translate as wells!

This event was inspired by the “RPG Maker VX Ace Lite Cook Off”, meaning the game was originally made on RPG Maker VX Ace Lite and following the correspondent limitations.

As the main German translator I have to say that working with Night Light Interactive really was a pleasure, and I hope that we will work together in the future again. At this point, I also want to thank the German proofreaders Adam Schemojtel and Harry Underwood, and of course a huge thankyou to the whole team of MoonCreative.

“It’s 2069. Yudai Sayashi’s ragtag club of “treasure hunters” (referred to as looters by those who know them), Durchhalten, was closer to real treasure than they’d ever been before. Overly eager, Yu’s sister Miho ran carelessly towards the vault, triggering a trap that killed her. Two years later, Yu comes across a startling discovery. The mythical Noah’s Ark, borne of legend by those who believe the Old World can be restored, turns out to be a real thing.
With the help of the kid genius Toshio, Yu learns about the existence of the Lazarus Protocol inside Noah’s Ark – a system that can recreate anything from the past – a machination developed during the time when humanity’s survival was uncertain. Using the Ark, Yu believes Miho can be brought back to life.
Before setting out to find the Ark, however, Yu wants to reunite the now defunct Durchhalten. The group had disbanded after the tragic incident two years ago, and he wants everyone to be there when Miho opens her eyes once more.”
The game is being funded through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. If you’d like to have a German translation, please tell all of your friends about it, so that enough money will be raised to cover all the costs. The game is set to be released in December 2014, and will have full voice acting (in English). It’ll work on several platforms; including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and others when the stretch goals are reached, for example PSVita, iOS, and Android. There is a demo available on the Kickstarter page. I’d be glad if you’d support this ambitious project.
