A downloadable experiment for Windows

You are invited to partake in an experiment. 
If you can agree to be on good behavior, you'll be meeting with Alie in an empty-looking realm. You and Alie will be interacting and learning about each other. Simple as that. You will not be in any danger. You are free to leave at any time and will always be welcome to return.
Keep in mind that this is an experiment, which means this is being observed. Just try to be on reasonably good behavior during your visits, please.

A simple visual novel made in a single month for NaNoRenO 2019. It involves you answering questions, drawing, and a bit of playing around and getting creative. More character-driven rather than story-driven, but you will also play an important role. There are multiple choices to answer questions, but it still plays out in a linear way.

(Please let me know if there are any issues and I will try to swiftly fix them, if possible.)

Version "0.989" - IMPORTANT FOR WINDOWS 10 USERS:

Attempted to fix an issue with Windows 10 that resizes the game when launched. Fix failed, it seems a setting in Windows 10 still overrides it. If you are using Windows 10, you must have the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" setting on your computer set to 100% (no more and no less) and then restart your computer to apply this change. I apologize for this inconvenience.

Because of how drawings are saved, the game must be played in Windowed-mode at its default resolution in order to function properly.

Also added "CREDITS.txt" in the game's folder, to give another source of visibility for the music and font used for this project.

Someday I'll get butler working...

Is it weird that the ending made me irrationally sad? I miss Alie tbh which is weird since it usually takes me hours to get invested in a character/person.

Anything that can invoke these feeling in a person is absolutely amazing! Thank you for making this!

It's rather short and simple, but I still wanted to make it feel meaningful and sentimental. I'm glad to hear Alie managed to leave enough of an impact on you despite the short time you've got to known each other. 

Thank you very much for playing!
