I saw the art style of this visual novel and was drawn in immediately. It's so beautiful and unique and it fit so well ;A;! Crocket is such a great main character lol. Her naivety is endearing. Will she and the other characters like the Stranger be making appearances in the sequel?

Hey, thanks so much!
I had lots of fun writing Crocket! (I actually missed her when I begun writing h2 because the new main character is so cold ^^) She does return, in the last part of the game (she's necessary for what's considered the game's true ending, although you COULD finish the game without bumping into her)

Another character shows up too, but it's a secret. ^^

There's going to be one.

So I finally downloaded and started playing your game today. Got ending four.

My response? I sat back in my chair, stared at the ceiling, and contemplated life quietly for a good hour or so.

The game's beautiful. Your art's beautiful. Crocket is a quirky, fantastic character, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out the kind of person they were as the story progressed. Actually, I loved all the characters.

Thank you very much for making this game. It's a gem.

Thank you so much for giving Hierofanía a chance. :)

I'm so glad you liked playing as Crocket. I was kind of afraid, while programming Hierofanía, that people wouldn't like her.
I really wanted to write a character that had her own opinions, but of course that meant people could easily disagree with her.

...Of course, now I'm scared that people won't like the new main character for H2, who's kind of a selfish brat, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to that river, I guess...

Again, thanks so much for giving Hierofanía a chance :hug:

With beautiful art like this and an interesting premise, I had to give the game a go.

I think Crocket is a brilliantly done protagonist. She's quirky, she has flaws she's very well aware of, but she has strengths that she's also very aware of, and it just makes for this very balanced and strong heroine. And I think it's fine for people to disagree with a protagonist. She's her own person. We're not supposed to be Crocket, are we? We're simply seeing the world through her eyes, getting familiar with her world as she views it. I personally thought it was a great experience, though it's true it might not be for everyone. I do believe everyone should give the game a chance, though, if only because it's very well told. (Seriously, your writing. I love it. So much.)

Hey, I've played bratty protagonists before. I think it's going to be okay, so long as you write a character you believe is worth writing about.

Once again, you're quite welcome! XD

Just wanted to add that I never expected to find myself liking Douglas as much as I do now. I mean, I liked him and Deedra from the start, but after getting to know Douglas better, he's really sky-rocketed in my esteems. I feel kind of sad for him, actually. Him and Deedra both.

I just finished endings 1, 7, and 2.......how do I get the other endings?
can't wait for 2 to come out....

Oooh, h2 is faaaaaar from finished. (I work alone, and I work super slowly, sorry)

Let's see if I can help you with H1.

Well...You can get some endings by being super nice to the stranger and NEVER asking about his crime. (Endings are different if you leave douglas in his cage also)
I gave the endings numbers because some people told me they remember numbers better, but the truth is I'm better at remembering the names!

So, did you like the endings you've gotten already? :)

Yes! I got ending 7 on the first try.
then I got curious what the other endings are and got 1,2,3,6. I like ending 7 the best though. (feels like how it should end.....)
take your time on your visual novel! I'll be looking forward to it.

I just finished playing this yesterday after someone recommended it to me. It was amazing! Wonderful work! I was interested right when I started it. Your art is wonderful and fitting to the game. :) All of your paths had a lot of depth to them as well. It was very interesting exploring them, and Crocket's personality was very well done and entertaining. Thank you for letting me play such an amazing game!
A hundred zombies! Haha. That part made me laugh.

Hey, thank you so much!! :)
To me it's wonderful to hear from somebody who's played Hierofanía.
I worked hard in it, but I was worried that people wouldn't be interested enough to try it.
Seriously, thanks a lot for giving it a chance. :)

I want to make more, bigger, better games!
I'm trying my best with the second Hierofanía game, so wish me luck! :D

I'm playing it now! How cool! It makes me want to make my own VN.

So I guess you used Renpy? (obv. a noob to this, apologies if I got it wrong)

It's not hard to make your own VN! Seriously, it isn't.
It can be quite time consuming if you're doing it alone, though, but that's pretty much it, all you need is time.
Yes, I used renpy! the official site is www.renpy.org it has lots of tutorials and things to make it easier.

If you finish Hierofanía, tell me if you liked it! :D

En cuanto a finales, son los mismos que en la Beta, pero creo que vas a ver varios cambios en cuanto a gráficos que yo (creo) son para mejor ^^

lo mejoraste un monton quedo muy bien, los cuadros de dialogo, la fuente, el iconito animado del espiral y si mi memoria no me engaña hay arte nuevo en los finales? o ese efecto recuadro razgado?
puse una screenshot del juego en accion en Ubuntu 10.10 en mi cuadro Webcam del perfil.

Lo que es la ignorancia. Tuve que googlear "Ubuntu" porque mientras no lo hiciera, la ultima frase iba a ser un gran misterio para mí! Ahora que sé lo que es, puedo decir "Gracias!" :D

Pero sí, hay varios agregados (el texto avanza solo, el principio antes era solo texto sin imágenes...)

Un pequeño paso para la programación, un gran paso para la ludeshka ^^

Oh my God, it looks so amazing & haunting! Best promo picture ever! If I wasn't in love with this game already, this picture would have surely won me over. I adore it even more because it highlights the Stranger vs Crocket conflict. :heart: Love the swirling text thing too, it gives the impression of fading memories or thoughts running in circles.
Btw, I was listening to Marianne Faithful's 'Who will take my dreams away' when I clicked on this picture, and I think it's becoming part of my imaginary Hierofania soundtrack, haha.

HAHA. Its alright, really. I enjoy editing, its good practice for me since I may end up in and around the publishing business. And I enjoy seeing my friends fulfill their ambitious projects!

I totally want in on helping beta test the second game. :D And I will send you proof that I can voice act. Just as soon as I can figure out a way to get a fairly cheap (but not crappy quality) microphone to work with.

I don't have hired mobsters that will break your legs if you don't play it.
And I don't have an army of bishonen/bishojo who will tickle your toes to entice you to play it either!
So will you play it if I ask nicely? XD
