Oh boy it's 3 a.m and I don't feel so good...I didn't cry but this feeling of heaviness in my chest will be here for a while :( If only things could be different for them...

Anyway, I love 96. Thanks for making such a wonderful game! Can't wait to see more of your projects in the future! 

Hello! :)

Thank you so very much for playing our game and leaving a comment! It means a lot!! :D
We're glad you enjoyed it, despite the angst :)
If you haven't played it yet there's the bonus episode available as well on itchio, but it's mostly some self-indulgent alternate ending :) So no pressure

We're very grateful, then! We will do our best on the next game as well :D
Development speed has been delayed a bit by irl problems but it should go back to its usually speed before 2022!

We hope to see you again when the time comes :)

Before playing this game I was already drawn in by the gorgeous colour palette but I had no idea what I was in for with the story. It was incredible and had me crying before it was even over.

As a queer person, I'd say it captured the hollow bittersweet feeling of unrequited love a lot of us have unfortunately dealt with perfectly. Not to mention the guilt that can often come with it too. 

Thank you for making this <3

Thank you so very much for your amazing comment!! :D

We're super glad you enjoyed the game :)


Thank you for playing <3

i really did not expect this game to make me cry when i first booted it up, but i'm glad it did


such a phenomenal game with a really heart wrenching story

Thank you so very much for the nice comment!! :D 

We're glad you enjoyed the game! :)

by the way, do you think you'll ever work on a sequel or a game set in the same universe?

It's not exactly a sequel but there is Another Story that is supposed to be played after the main game, if you haven't checked it out yet and are interested in it. :)

https://spongey-kitty.itch.io/96-another-story

If you have, we're sorry to say it's the only bonus episode we have for now for 96. :(


The new game is set in another universe, but who knows what the future holds. ^^

Thank you for the interest!

This game looks excellent but it continues to get stuck at 24 percent when unpacking the .rar file.

Hello! :)

We're sorry you're running into this issue! :( It's the first time we're hearing about it, so could it be related to an incomplete download or something like that? Or is there a specific error message that's appearing?

Is it the Windows or Mac version?

We hope we can find a solution :'(

This was so good! I wasn't crazy about the graphics in the screenshots - but the story and execution really blew me away! Thanks for creating this gem. 

Thank you very much for you comment! :)
We're super glad you enjoyed it! :D

the game looks super cool... sadly my Mac wouldn't open "Game"..

Hello! :)

Thank you for your comment!

Unfortunately we do not own a Mac ourselves and had to make the OS version on a friend's Mac so we are not sure which OS versions are compatible with it. Right now, we are unable to make other versions unless we find someone else who has a different Mac. :(
We're very sorry about that!!

There's always the gameplay video on Youtube (with no commentary) if that is all right with you, or we were told that the emulated windows version should work.

Thank you for your reply:"(

I really want to try out this game as it looks amazing, so I plan to play on my friend's PC!

Aw, thank you!! :'(

We hope you won't run into any trouble with the PC version!! :)

I finally got a chance to play it on PC and almost cracked when I see the picture of 9 and 6. They're beautiful people. 

Ah, we're glad you could play it!! :)

Thank you so very much!! :D

Howdy! i loved 96 and i would really like to keep myself up to date with whatever other projects you make, do you have like a fan discord or is it just this forum?

Hello! :)
We're super glad to hear that :D

Besides itchio we do have a twitter page for now, if that's okay!
https://twitter.com/Spongey_Kitty
We're currently posting some new stuff about our new game  there :)

Thanks for the nice comment! ^^

where is the password of !!bonus!!rar?

Hello!

Let me get a spoiler tag for those who don't want to see it!


*SPOILER*

*

*

It should be 9loves6 ^^

It should show up after the credits :)

When I open the game, I get some errors like this : 

TypeError: Cannot read property 'blendModes' of undefined

What should I do?

Hello! :)

We're sorry you're running into trouble with the game!!


Could we have some more info about it?

For example, which version is it? The windows or the Mac one?

On which system are you running it?

Rpg maker mv sometimes really don't like older systems like windows 7 (it's super picky for some reason)


It might also be that the game is missing some data, please make sure you've decompressed it and nothing is missing.


Sorry for the inconvenience, we hope we will be able to find a solution! :(

I'm crying, you didn't have to do em like that TT

Sorry about that xD

Next game won't be this sad, we promise. 

We hope you enjoyed it nonetheless :)

Dw, I loved it

Hello!! This game seems very interesting, and I'd love to play it, but because I have a mac I am unable to download it! Will a mac version be available anytime soon?

Hello! :)

The game engine does have an option to export the game as an executable for mac, but unfortunately we don't know anyone who owns one, so we're currently unable to test it out. 

If that doesn't bother you however, we can release it soon. 

Please let us know :)

I will be happy to test it out! I really want to try playing the game, and even if it doesn't work it'll be nice to try! 

All right! ^^

We've run into the problem that we actually need someone with a mac to export a running version of them game?
So we will try to find someone who's willing to help us out for this :o

Sorry for the inconvenience, we will try to find a way to release it in the shortest time!
We will keep you updated TT

Hello again! :)

We managed to test the mac version and we've uploaded it, so we hope it will work...?
We're a bit unable to do any bugfixing or quickly address issues since it wasn't our pc but we will do our best! :)

We really really hope it will work xD

The game is amazing, Why can you create this game, you are awsome. And can I ask you a question? What is the password of the bonus file you add?

Why, thank you very much! :D
We're glad you enjoyed the game!! :)

The password to the bonus folder shows after the credits ^^
But I'll write it down just in case!
It's:  9loves6

Let us know if there is any problem with it!  :)

Its such an amazing game. I enjoyed every second of it and im not gonna lie i cried a lot. Even though it was short i got attached to these characters and i really hope you'll make more games

Thank you very much for such a kind comment!! :D
We're super glad to hear that you enjoyed the game!! :) (sorry for the tears :( )

We will do our best in the future as well, we promise :D

Soo.. I might or might not have created an itch.io account for the sole purpose of being able to tell you guys how great and touching I found your game to be? The way the narrative slowly unfolded and the interactions between the characters was so masterfully executed I'm legitimately in awe. Niles is the perfect tragic hero and so much of his personality is translated through such well-written dialogue (without facial expressions too!) that I couldn't help get attached to him, and despite everything, hoped for a happy ending for both him and his beloved. Also, that scene? With Sixten at the end? God that hurt so so much but holy hell was it well done and poignant! Overall, I think you guys can see how much your little game affected me. I'd like to issue my thanks to both Y and Hoshiko for allowing me and many others to experience such a tale. Now if you'll allow me, I'll be going through the Other Story to bask in this world and its characters as long as I'm allowed to. Can't wait to see what you guys are preparing for your next project, take care! <3

Hello there! :D

Aaaaah, such kind words!!!! ToT
You truly made our day! :)

We're overjoyed you decided to post this comment ^^
(also pretty Yozora pfp :D )

We're very glad if you enjoyed the game TwT We were so scared of publishing it, at first, because of its themes...
But people like you made it all absolutely worth it!!

Yeah, we sometimes do wonder about what 96 with portraits would look like? xD
But Niles would need oh so many!

We would also like to thank you for playing it!! :D 
We hope Another Story will be to your liking? It's very different, but a lot of people requested it xD (Hoshiko as well)

Again, you have our most heartful thanks  <3
Please, take care as well!! :3

Hello ! This game was absolutely amazing. I had a really awesome time playing it for over an hour ! Thank you very much for this powerful, touching and sublime story that made me cry so much. I can't wait to play your future games, i will follow you glady on all your work !

Aaaah, thank you so very much for your lovely comment, it made us very happy! :D
We're super glad you enjoyed the game :)

We will keep doing our best for the future projects as well!! ^^

Also.......It's out of context and we apologize for that, but it feels very nice to be told this from someone with a Godot pfp :D
(Y is a huge ace attorney fan)

Thanks again for the comment, it means a lot to us! :D
We wish you all the best! :)

Such an amazing and wonderful game c:!!! Can I ask you how was the creation/creative process of the music? It really stands out and combines greatly with the ambience. Im curious about the software too.

Hello there! :)

Thanks for the wonderful comment!
We used rpg maker MV for this game :D

It's kind of a funny story but I was looking for musics that could be used for rpg maker games and I ran into the very talented Scott Arc on the rpg maker forums!
I immediately fell in love with their music and couldn't help but think of a story that would fit in with them, together with the restricted color palette.
We had just replayed most Silent Hill games at the time, so I suppose that played a part as well.

I'll link their bandcamp, their work is simply amazing! (I love the Arc I album so much I'd use it in every game if I could)
https://scottarc.bandcamp.com

I hope this helped, but if you have any other question, please let us know!
We're always delighted to reply to our comments :)

Y

This was a rare experience, and I'm still crying after having finished it. It's beem a long time since I've cried this hard. You told a very powerful story where I honestly didn't really expect one. Thank you for making this game.

Thank you so much for your amazing comment and the nice words! :)
We're super glad you enjoyed the game! :D

this is absolutely amazing for a first game! the characters were written so well and the plot just kept on surprising me around every corner. really hope you guys make more games, i'll definitely be interested in playing!

Thank you very much for the comment :D
It's always so very nice to receive such kind reviews!
We're happy you enjoyed the game ^^

We will do our best for the future projects as well!! :)

I *really* love the game!! It was so touching!! I felt pity for Niles' struggles of loving someone that treats them as their brother, and there was even a point when I felt like Niles should just give it a rest... But that ending though?? When Sixten gained a bit of conscience?? I screeched and was so sad, and all I could do is hope that they get to love each other in another life <3 Thank you for this!!

Thank you so much for your amazing comment! :)
We're glad you enjoyed the game!!

We hope so too :'(

I've only watched the game, but I love it so much already, I can't imagine what I'll feel more once I actually get to play it. I'm downloading it right now and I just feel like a bundle of fear, excitement, sadness, and a whole lot other emotions.

Thank you so much for this game, it's just amazing

Cries and smiles from a distance. 

Hello over here as well :)

We're so very glad to hear that!!
We never hoped for such an amazing feedback, since the game has some...Heavy themes.
Our minds are blown away!!

We hope you will enjoy playing it as well :)
(we're never sure which videos show the bonus folder or not, so we hope you will enjoy those files as well :D )

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, we will cherish them forever! :D

This is so amazing! I don't usually write a comment, but gosh I absolutely love this and I cried so much. I got so emotional playing this and I thank you for bringing this masterpiece to us

Thank you oh so much for such a lovely comment!! :D It made our day!
We're glad you enjoyed the game ! :)

words cant describe how i felt when playing. Such a beautiful game with tons of effort. I lost someone I loved too, and I can deeply understand can emphathetic with yours characters. Keep up the good work and Im hoping to see your future projects.

Hello! :D

Thank you very much for leaving such an amazing comment!!
We will try doing our best in the future as well!

We wish you all the best from the bottom of our hearts :)

Such a gorgeous game! It touched my heart and made me almost cry at the end. At least, I'm sure that they both love each other. I hope they will meet again in the after life. Besides, I feel extremely regretful that when Niles passed away , Sixten said the words Niles wanted most. If possible, Niles will truly smile as long as he hears Sixten's speech. However, at that time, Niles didn't hear anything anymore... 


Thanks for making this game! (and the bonus, too. It was like a candy cure me of this bitter taste)

(+1)

Hello :D

Thanks for the lovely comment! :)
It gladdens our hearts to see that people enjoyed the game! ^^

I'm always very interested in hearing about how other people intrepret the ending :) 

We hope the upcoming bonus will be to your liking as well, then :D

Y

i really enjoyed this nice little game, what a treat! although it was sad i think that's a good thing as it really brought out my emotions. i liked the little touches such as sixten's sprites toward the end, things like that in games are always neat.

thanks for giving me this experience! it was a nice little surprise to see this kind of representation too since i came in without much knowledge besides the description :-)

Thank you for the wonderful comment! :D

We always like to see more inclusive games, so we try to also have different characters in our stories :)

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for playing our game :D

We wish you all the best! ^^

I did't look at the tags of the game so I was learning everything about the relationship aspect along with Elise which was fantastic!

The game itself was entertaining (albeit sad) and the atmosphere build-up was great. There are enough hints thrown around to help the player figure some things in advance.

I was actually looking over the game files when I happened upon some interesting pictures, for example 'S's room'. It's probably just early concepts but it was fun to look at, especially since I have grown to love every single character : )

Hello! :)

Thank you for the nice comment! ^^

Yes, we feel like it's better to play it without knowing too much?
Which is why we had such a hard time coming up with a summary that didn't spoil the whole thing xD

Who knows, maybe they're not early concepts? ;)
(ok I won't spoil the fun)

We are glad you enjoyed it, though :D
We will keep working hard on the bonus! ^^

Y

Its a amazing game, one of the most emotional games what i see.

this game stuck in my head (and its so hard to do so good job)

I only miss one thing, maybe different endings :( maybe a happy ending or something :( i really liked this game.

so if this game gets more ending, i think, i can say this is the best game in this type.

Thank you so much for your support, we are glad you liked the game! <3

Hoshiko

This was really good, I really like the aesthetics and color selection in this game!! Also what does the secret code mean?

(+1)

Thank you very much for your comment!! :D

The secret code is to open the "!!Bonus!!.rar" folder :)
The location is slightly different depending on the version you have, but it should be either in the main directory or in the "www" directory.

The bonus is so cute! Thanks for including this!!

(+1)

Our pleasure!
Again, thank YOU for playing! :D

Beautifully written. The transition from the shock of keeping a zombie in your house to the pity (and, to a certain degree, empathy) at Nile's reasons for doing so was very well done. The story was very well-written and compelling and I must say I shed a few tears at the end! Definitely one of the best indies I've played in a while. I rate it an i cried / 10. I hope to see more content from you in the future! :)

P.S: I'm 100% replaying this so I can unlock the super secret Bonus thing. Well-hidden! I almost didn't notice. :D


P.S.S: Sorry if I'm not meant to ask, but - I've been looking through the files (I'm a developer, couldn't help myself) and I was wondering, is there some place I can privately message you guys? I have a few questions that I don't want to put out here because it might spoil some things.

Hello! :)

Thank you so much for such an awesome comment!!

I hope the bonus folder will be to your liking, it's just a small thing after all :)

Of course!

The only real issue i had was frequently bumping into stuff but overall great game, i barely held back tears and would love to see more

Thank you for your support !

Hi, this was a great story. Very compelling.

On another note, I found a small bug. Around the end of the game I found a text box that probably wasn't supposed to be there at that point in the game. I was walking through the shopping area looking at the coprses when I thought I heard Niles's come out of nowhere, "Aren't you cold, Ava?"

Hello! ^^

Indeed!
I just patched it, and I will upload a fixed version as soon as I can :)

Thank you for your amazing comment and for the very useful feedback!! :D

Y

This game made me cry terribly, which is very hard to do. Is it possible in a later version to have a sort of after credits sequence with Sixten and Niles together in the afterlife? Or even an image? -M. Manatee

Hello! :)
Thank you so much for your comment, it makes us very happy!!! ^^
(sorry for making you cry, though :( )
Actually, we might have something in store concerning that ^^
We hope we will be able to bring it to you guys, one day :)
Again, thank you for your support and for your lovely comment!!

You are welcome, I expect great things to come from you guys! Enjoy the donation.

Hi. That's a good game you produced here. The plot is interesting, the soundtrack is very good, visuals are nice. I took a chance to make a gameplay for my channel. You have talent in write plots man, keep it up!

Thank you very much for your support! We are glad you had a good experience with the game.
Thanks for the video, it's really nice of you.

I cried SO MUCH, that was beautiful ! TwT <3

Thank you so much for your support <3

I watched the AlphaBetaGamer playthrough of "96" this morning. I usually scrob through playthrough vids, especially when they're long...but I found myself absorbed in Niles' story for the full one-and-a-half hours. While I could tell the dialogue was done by non-Native English speakers, the STORYTELLING was ABSOLUTELY COMPELLING and the feelings did not get lost in translation.

For me, think the nuanced opinion/portrayal of Niles really lands; he's sympathetic but, like Elise, I wouldn't necessarily call him my friend.

Not to mention the soundtrack was spot-on and the aesthetic was A++.

SILENT HILL 2 is famous for being a horror game, but a deeper look reminds us that it's always been a tragic love story, and "96" follows this tradition. Well done, y'all.

Thank you so much for your feedback!
We tried to proofread the dialogue as much as we could but the both of us aren't native English speakers so we are truly sorry about that :/. We are happy that it was not much of a problem for the understanding of the story though ^^.

Thank you again for your comment, we really appreciate that and we are amazed that people liked the game <3.

Y & Hoshiko

I made a gameplay of your game.

Thank you so much for making a video about our game! We're very glad you took the time to play it.

this was such an incredible story, i don't think i've ever cried because of a video game before but i bawled my eyes out for at least a half hour over that ending ): thank you for creating such a wonderful game!
