Hi AmyM. Sorry to hear that. Would you kindly elaborate on this?  There shouldn't be any problems as far as I know.

Great game! <3

Finished all the endings and unlocked all CG's.

I really enjoyed this game and wish it was longer. Anyway, here is my review for He@rtstrings. (Excuse my grammar, ehem* ehem*)

Beautiful music, It brings the scene more emotional. The GUI is well designed. Simple, smooth, good color combinations, and not confusing to use. The style of character sprites and CG's are not the same but it was understandable because there were different artists. I like the art on CG's more than the sprites because for example, one of the LI looks hot on CG but on his sprite it's more on the cute side. Story is good too, it was heartwarming and some endings were heartbreaking. I just hoped that they also explain more about the MC's power, like how did she obtain it, or maybe I just missed it? My favorite LI is Zach, he is the endgame for me, beacause on every route I can feel his true love to the MC, or maybe because he is my bias hehe. I was amazed at Hugo's CG, really beautiful art style and gosh he is hot. Yuki's route is sad while on Hugo it goes dark sometimes. You can feel a lot of emotions on playing this game. If possible on the future I wish for more, like sequels.

Thank you for reading my review. (Nosebleed)

Overall it was great experience, creator please make more game like this hehe ;)

Keep up the good work!
