Mimi Nezumi by norinoko Mimi Nezumi by norinoko
It... is finally done!! My first (very short) visual novel! It was supposed to take a few months to make, but instead it took more than a year to complete because I kept putting it aside and took forever to continue working on it orz. It didn't help that I'm not experienced in drawing backgrounds.

You can download the game here [link] (MediaFire) or here [link] (4shared)
(Contains Windows, Mac, and Linux versions)

In this short VN, you play as Mimi, a little mouse who decided to venture out of her nest in the ceiling of a house and explore the place. There are decisions that you have to make which would determine the outcome of Mimi's short adventure. There are 6 endings in total.

Feel free to suggest any improvements that I could make for future games that I might (or might not) be making. Also, if there are any issues or bugs with the Windows or Linux versions of this game, please inform me so that I may fix them. Have fun~

Created using Ren'Py: [link]
Credits/sources are in the game.

[UPDATE: Ver. 1.4 now has music in the main menu and credits. Also added another download link, in case one does not work.]

I played this game a few times (I had to try all the different options) and I just want to let you know I loved it!!!! The art was precious and really charming, the music was fitting for the atmosphere, and I just really liked Mimi. I got so scared whenever she was injured!!! I thought all the bad endings were quite funny though, omg, I laughed REALLY hard whenever she got thrown from a window with the wilhelm scream, I actually rewound the game to show it to my sister because I was laughing so hard. I really had fun with everything.

I ALSO loved how the main menu image changed to reflect the endings you'd gotten!!! I exclaimed "OH NO" when I saw the image of the cat walking away from Mimi's discarded ribbon......... Oh no...... The presentation of everything was just really good. Thank you so much for making this adorable game!

Awww, you're welcome! And thank you so much! ;w; I'm glad you enjoyed the game with all the different options and endings.

(I would also go "Oh no!" if I saw something similar to the bad ending of Tama with Mimi's discarded ribbon. Poor Mimi XD;; )

This game is so awesome! It's like a children's visual novel. Even though I'm not a kid anymore, this is one of my fav VNs so far.
I too enjoyed the different title screens. I hope one day when I make a VN it'll be half as good as this one.

I've played a lot of Ren'Py games, and I have to say that this game was very well done. Yes it was very short, and I wish it could have been longer, but I wouldn't sacrifice a longer game for the quality that this game had. The art was nice (I also liked that you saw that character that you played as). Once you get further into Ren'Py games (if that's what you want to do anyway), I would suggest that you award the players. That can be done with cgs and/or an ending list (though I definitely enjoyed the ending descriptions and changing title screen =D). An ending list would provide a player of your games the ability to tell if they've experienced everything that your game has to offer. The music fit the style of game, although as ~HazeReality said, music in the title screen would have made it just a little better. The male scream sound effect was more funny than it was fitting. The smack sound effect was perfect! It was especially startling when used in the first ending =D Overall, I really enjoyed the game, even as short as it was.

Aww, thank you so much for your feedback. >w<
The idea of CGs and ending lists to award the player sounds good. 8D If I do make a longer Ren'Py game, I will try to implement something like that.

For the male scream, it was indeed placed in the defenestration scenes for comedic effect. Now I feel bad for poor Mimi... XD;

Also, it looks like I have to find some music for the title screen soon. XD;;;

The title screen music would be used to make the player feel like a game (since a lot of mainstream games have it) and for some reason, music feels more natural at a title screen. Obviously, games can be good even if they don't have music in the title screen (as you have demonstrated), so it's not absolutely necessary. =]

One thing is for sure, I'm definitely looking forward to any other games you may release =]

Overall this was a pretty good(though short) VN. I enjoyed it, and I really liked how the title screen pic would change after you got one of the endings. My favorite title screen changes was after endings 1 and 3. :)

The only thing I didn't like is that there's no music at the title screen. That isn't too big of a deal, though.

Heheh, thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. XD
The title screen for ending 1 might be a bit of a shock for those who got that ending first. XD;;;

Ahh.. I'm sorry about not having music in the title screen. I didn't put much thought into it.. orz
I'll make a note of it.

Thank you for your feedback. Much Appreciated~ 8D
