Oh, if only I weren't a broke-ass student who can't afford extra stuff I would buy this game one hundred times over...
This is glorious and I will never tire of playing it.
As soon as I get my hands on extra money, that full version is coming home to momma!

I just finished AreaX a few days ago, and it was amazing! I felt like I was reading a fantastic novel that I couldn't put down! I loved guessing what was going to happen, and so many things caught me by surprise. I don't know how you were able to balance such serious and funny moments. I was laughing one moment, and choking up the next. The beautiful artwork and fascinating story really inspired me.

Thank you for making this wonderful game, zeiva! I just love everything about it and it will always hold a special place in my heart! Kept reading people complaining about the difficulty of the mini-games, but there are people who appreciate them, and for me personally the level of mini-games in Area-X is perfect, not too hard like in your earlier games but same fun and not too easy!

That was a very good demo and amazingly beautiful music. I found where to purchase the game. Is the soundtrack coming with it for listening to when I am not playing the game or not?

The soundtrack is royalty-free music, so I don't have the right to resell it. There is however, an in-game soundtrack gallery.

Hey, Zeiva! Just wanted to let you know that I bought this game but the one that came home was X-Note. It wasn't that much of a big deal, because I was planning on buying it also, and I assumed that the error was mine.
But, today I went to buy this game again and I looked very carefully over every step I made and there seems to be an error on your part. In the Area-X page (zeiva.net/otome/area_x_story.h…) when you click on getting the CD it redirects you to PayPal but instead of adding the Area-X game, it adds the X-Note. I managed to order the other one either way, but I thought you'd like to know so you can change it ^^
Continue making such amazing games!
And I'll be waiting for the Silent-X game to come out so i can order it too ;)
Hugs!

Yo! Wonderful game. I'm still scrambling to find the soundtracks on neosounds xD they really added to the mood. Especially the Livan and Ferim ones. I cried QQ

By the way, the song for Livan's ending overlaps with another song. Ya might want to check that out ^^;

By the way, can I know the soundtracks for Rexus' ending, Livan's bonus and Ferim's ending? They're my favourites, probably cause they were the most emotional ones T_T

In case anyone else is searching for the Area-X soundtracks, I'm trying to add them to playlists on neosounds. Links are on my tumblr (coco-dreamland.tumblr.com/post…) I'm also putting in X-note songs if I come across them.

Yes, it does. It is set in the same world as X-note, and you get to see Rexus' past and why he helped Essi in X-note. It also has plenty of cameos.

God, that is really a great game! Played so many games already, but only Zeiva's game are the most distinctive. All is perfect - drawings, storyline, music! I've played X-note, Train of afterlife and Area-x - full versions of all those games. And I'm total fan of this treasures )) Looking forward to your new art and be sure, that this is not simply a talent, you number 1 in creating such games.

Also I found many of soundtrack from those games, but I' stuck with Area-x ( Because there are no song list and I've spent so many days on Neosounds trying to find some compositions.. If it's ok, could you please write the names of the tracks that were used in the game to find them? Besides Harpo and Global disturbance, you've mentioned those here and I've found them. If it's hard or you find that inapropriate to write it here, then ok. Either way, thank you a lot for your hard work and patient ) Please, don't give up on doing such masrerpieces.

Yours, Anyanka

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Which specific songs are you looking for?
Reply
:iconvedmochkaelli:
Thank you a lot for your answer. I'm mostly interested in two tracks. One was playing, for example, when Irina comes to Elcia's home, talking about visiting Planetarium.

And te other one, I remember was in many routes, for example, in Livan's when lady Memme tells Elcia about her meeting Livan, when he came to the manor first time, the last chapter (the talk after he wounded Pedoe). Thank you again.

I'm not exactly sure which track you are talking about, so I will list possible ones I can think of ^^;

Gymnopedie
A Child
One Day of My Life
Missing Piece

Hope one of them is at least correct. ^^;
