MAN, IT IS HELLA LIT. I'm so frustrated you have to cut it to the most interesting part ;; I must all the characters are well written. The graphics is the level you see on commercial games by the big companies and that is big brownie points for me! The way the choices really affects the flow of the story AND your relationship with the characters in a superbly interactive way brings so much connection and delight from a game that has a lot of potential! I bet there are a lot world building and research put on this because the system of their world is a place i don't think you just infiltrate. Good job! I enjoyed it so much.

P.S I also love the Ascension! You just gained a new fan : ) 

P.S.S Egon has officially stolen my heart. That, he did.  ;  )

Fantastic! Cheeky, smart, funny, intriguing... I'm eagerly looking forward to the full game.

<the game="" is="" wonderful!<="" span="">

First, I'm Brazilian and my English is not the best, but I want to leave my comment on the game ...

<the game="" is="" wonderful!<="" span="">The game is wonderful!</the>

<the game="" is="" wonderful!<="" span="">The art of the characters was wonderful and well detailed as well as their
personalities, which is worth emphasizing, they were very dynamic and
human.</the> The storyline is well built which made it intriguing and interesting! Quite different from the games I've played. The
scenarios (one of the main things I liked) are divine, each environment
is well designed, often the ambience is kind of left out in some games.
I loved the game '' dictionary'' , I thought it was cool! You
have created a well-constructed and complex world and I will tell you:
This story would make a great bestseller! This is not a simple story of a
teenage couple cliche! The story has a context! It should turn out to be a book!

I'm crazy waiting for the game! The plot made me curious and I have already created my theories about some things!

Forgive me if I made a mistake in English, as I said I'm not very good with English.


Awesome demo! Perfect plot, background music and graphics <3. Waiting for full game :D

"Security protocol" won the game ^^

Okay, let's do this.

I have been your biggest fan ever since your first Ascension game came out. I was on RinmaruGames, which is where I found it, for a while, even before Ascension came out, and I never really went to the visual novel section. Then a little bit later, I went to that section, and there was the first Ascension. Looked interesting, so I played it. Fell in love with Zander and Faelern, and I hated waiting for the next game to come out. I replayed all of the Ascension games about five to six times, probably more, and have almost memorized the entire script!

After replaying Ascension for about the sixth time, I saw that there was a new game from you, on itch.io. I clicked the link, and looked at the artwork. It was so hard debating whether I should get it or not, because I didn't want to play it and get hooked to it like I did with Ascension, then wait for the full game to come out. I gave into temptation, of course, and I LOVE it! Can't wait for the full game to come out. Now, to what I was getting at.

As I said, loved romancing Zander and Faelern, so I was just wondering...

Who can you romance in here?

I know that you can romance Egon, pretty obvious, but who else? Can you romance the professor?

Also, one more question.

What's the deal between Egon and Pious? I've been making so many theories for so long, and I'm just really curious. Are we gonna find out in the full game, or are you just gonna leave us hanging?

That's all I gotta say. Hope you read all this. Bye! I love you SO SO SO much!

I LOVE IT and i can't wait for the full version but I would like to now if we will have to pay for the full version ( Yes , I know that probably sound  like an idiot but I still want to be sure about it). The art works and the whole game is unimaginable!!

I really enjoyed this demo and can barely wait for the game itself. Great work!

Thank you so much! :D

This is an awesome game! Can't wait for the full version.

Thank you! =)

I really enjoyed this demo and can barely wait for the game itself. Great work!

ok i'm concerned. my virus detection software wont let me download it because it says it's not safe. should i proceed or no

i think its bc of renpy. the game is safe tho :)

Many anti virus programs give a false positive for indie games. =) As long as you download them from reliable sources it should be fine.

Hey I'm just one of your biggest fans and I'm so glad that the demo is finally released! I remember myself playing the original Ascension game years ago and since then I've fallen in love with all your works haha... I've been watching every updates on your page and I'm still waiting for all your games to be finally done and released :D The demo is great, even much greater than what I expected! I was so amused and really enjoyed the game. I wish you best luck and I want you to know that I'm always supporting you from the bottom of my heart :) Keep working hard Rin, I'll always be waiting xx

<3 Thank you so so so much!!! =)

The art work is absolutely stunning. It's clearly worth all of the time and effort you put into it. I can't wait for the full version! Keep working hard!

Thank you so much! :D

i downloaded it but the dialogue wont show TT^TT and i was so excited to start the demo....

Did you try updating your video card?

no...i will do that thank you ^3^


*sigh* I tried to avoid playing this demo as long as I could because I knew that I will be obsessed about it, like I was obsessed with Ascension. Honestly, you never disappoint. Stunning artwork, especially CGis, amazing characters and an interesting world. And I love the chemistry between Lana and Egon. I can't wait for more.

>=D <3 Thank youuu!


AWESOOOOME I love this website so so excited to see you on here now!!!!!!!

=D <3!



Not the right place to say this but i love Calling Cipher and Ascension! i would also like to know if Linen Tale will also have downloadable demo soon?


Linen Tale demo, unfortunately, won't be available anytime soon. =) I will probably release the demo about a few weeks from actual release.

Thank you so so much for waiting! :) <3

I don't usually go for fantasy visual novels, but this is amazing! I was immediately drawn into this strange world of tense politics and complicated individuals. You did an incredible job of developing the storyline and the setting, and balancing it all with charming character interactions.

The characters are so engaging. I'm fascinated by all of the characters' histories and relationships--Pious's relationship with Egon and her girl? Lana's past? I want to find out more about all of them!

It's refreshing to play as an MC who has such an awesome personality + that we still have control over Lana's dialogue. I like how you pointed out which one of the options leads to romance with Egon (I went for romance right away!!) and that each choice elicits a different response. The banter between Lana and Egon is hilarious, as is Karel and Kitt (that frying pan?? YES).

The backgrounds, character design, and special art scenes are stunning. (Egon, Kieran, and Karel? mmmm :P)

My only complaint would be the fade-in-fade-out transition of the text boxes; kinda made my head spin after a while, especially because there are so many lines of text. I found myself clicking through the other characters' dialogue as quickly as possible, in order to get back to Lana and Egon. I also wish there was a rewind option on the dialogue; I know there is a pop-up box where you can read through all the text, but it'd be nice to go back to reverse our choices (especially because some of the response choices are a bit vague; at one I made Egon annoyed when I thought it was a witty remark!).

Overall, what an outstanding, polished demo with a fascinating plot and line of characters! I'm hooked and can't wait to play more.

EDIT: Mini-games are such a fun idea. Love it!


Thank you so so much! :D There were several people who were also bothered with the dialog box fade in and out, I will be fixing that in the final version! :D

I don't actually plan on having a rewind option, as I want to keep a certain "urgency" feeling in the game, but I will certainly try and improve the text on replies, so there won't be a lot of confusion. =)

Thank you so much for the long review! I hope you will enjoy the final release as much! =)

Am I the only one that can't read the text, as in, it won't show up? If there's a solution please let me know~ I LOVE the art style and the music by the way, they are so enticing and wonderful to listen to/examine!


I have this problem too. Trying to figure out a way to fix it.

No, there are several people with the same invisible text problem. I'm still trying to figure out what might be causing this. Do you mind if you can tell me your Operating System and your resolution? :) I'm sorry you are having trouble with the game. I will do my best to fix it as soon as possible.

Im using Windows 7 and my resolution is 1366 x 768. I hope this gets fixed because the game looks so intresting!

(Edited 1 time)

Wow, I was about to reply but you beat me to it! I also have the same operating system and resolution, Windows 7 and 1366 x 76!
What are the odds! Actually kinda weird but meh

So, Pytom thinks outdated video card drivers are mostly causing the issue. Updating the video drivers should fix the problem. :)


I did find an error while I was playing the demo. During the scene where you're talking to the Egon over noodles and he mentions how the place you came from is not the best place, when I stayed silent it gave an error. I wasn't sure where you'd like me to put any info like that when I noticed it, so here it is.

Other than that, the game is fabulous. I like the story depth and plot and the characters are interesting and I'm excited for the full thing.

Thank you so much! :) <3

Same thing if you stay silent in your second dialogue choice with Lana. Do you want the error code?

Yes, please! That would be great :)! <3


This is an awesome game! The art style is beautiful and the graphics are amazing! I love the humour and all the love choices and player choices that you can make throughout it! Awesome job! I can't wait for more!

:) Thank you so much! <3


Wow! This was fabulous. The humour, the story, all of it. I was going to avoid actually playing this because I didn't want to wait for another great game to be released, but realised that I'd be waiting anyway. I'm not going to ask the usual, I'll just keep tabs. Cheers.

=D hehe! Thank you so much!
