German Translations of Japanese Legends

Today I have two new free kinetic novels for you! Both games are Japanese legends and are relatively short. Red Ogre and Blue Ogre is something for children, but it has a certain message. Ghost Fall has some light horror elements and it’s a little bit scary. Both KNs are nice for reading in your break or something; you can play them in your browser:

The stories are from Kudo Masahiro. Happy reading!

Midnight Chaos – Announcement

Midnight Chaos

Midnight Chaos is a short kinetic novel and part of the Sleepless Night series. It is highly recommended that you play Sleepless Night and Sleepless Night 2: Ladies’ Night(mare) beforehand. This story focuses on what happens in that time when the protagonist from Sleepless Night is asleep and the girls from Sleepless Night 2 are having their ladies’ night. It’ll throw some light on the events from the two games and is some sort of prelude to the third and final Sleepless Night game. You will meet old friends and new enemies.

What is Haru up to now? His friends are in danger, and he has to make an important decision. The true villain shows up and threatens Haru and all the people he loves. Can Haru find his friends in time to warn them? Will he find the answers in Shizuka’s house, or in the forest?

Since Midnight Chaos is a thank you to the fans of the series, I wanted to make it available who support the Sleepless Night series in some way. If you’ve created fan art, fan fiction, a translation of one of the games, or something else or have provided me with resources for the games and/or helped me with programming/art/testing, just send me a message and I’ll send you a link to the full game once it’s released. Of course, you can also create something new, it doesn’t have to be super complex, just something small is good enough. I’ll post fan art and other things on my website and link to a page of yours if you want.

Grinning Heart: The Voyage – German Translation

The prequel to Grinning Heart: The Meeting is released! In Grinning Heart: The Voyage Chro ends up in a cursed forest where she finds a handsome man. If you know the series, you know that a lot of missunderstandings and funny dialogues are bound to occur.

Grinning Heart: The Voyage by Ngareci is a bit longer than the first game and offers funny, animated scenes with Chro and her new “target”, beautiful artwork, and a dragon. It is a kinetic novel, so no choices and only one ending. However, you should give it a try, because it is free and suitable for every age.

Always The Same Blue Sky… – German Translation

Always The Same Blue Sky…

Always The Same Blue Sky… is a commercial kinetic novel by Grant Wilde. Kinetic novel means that it is a pure story and the player cannot make decisions to change the outcome. The novel is an unique island adventure and a timeless love story full of mysteries.

“Due to mysterious circumstances you have been sent to finish studying on a remote Mediterranean island. Sure you’re used to moving around, but even you haven’t experienced an island quite like this a girl quite like Kira.”

This short novel invites you to a heart-warming love story of two young people. But some things are still unsolved and soon you will realize that Kira is not like other girls. A story which leaves room for interpretations with its vivid language, metaphors and philosophical thoughts. You can play the game in English and German, it works with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers, and you can buy it for £2.49 (£2.99 for the HD Edition). There is also a free demo.

This Is Where I Want To Die

My contribution for this year’s NaNoRenO is finished already! This Is Where I Want To Die is a short kinetic novel, which is about a dying person trying to remember what happened. More information and the game to download on its official site: This Is Where I Want To Die

The game was created in less than a month, but I had the story already in mind. It’s free an can be played in English and German. TIWIWTD contains only one ending and no choices, but has an important message I want to put across. Have fun!
