[DFU VN] Demo and Kickstarter by DestinyFailsUs [DFU VN] Demo and Kickstarter by DestinyFailsUs
An Otome Game that follows the life of Idril Ar'Feinel, a girl who spends too much time with video games and not enough on her homework.

In the beginning of Destiny Fails Us, Idril's time is devoted to friends, video games, and a childhood crush named Vincent. Everything in her life gets flipped upside down all in one day. Suddenly, romance, school work, and friendships have become more complicated and as Idril takes a step back to reassess her life, You, the Player, take the reigns and decide what will become of Idril's teenage years.

Your choices will effect everything from your friendships, social status and love life, to your grades and what events you experience in the DFU world. Are you the type of person who strives to hold on to all of your friends and loved ones, or would you rather ignore the wants and needs of those around you to further your own gain? Either way, it's up to you to decide whether you would like to be the perfect angel, or feed your inner demon.

Lint Statistics:
The game contains 1,254 dialogue blocks, containing 17,944 words and 93,803 characters, for an average of 14.3 words and 75 characters per block. The game contains 27 menus, 352 images, and 40 screens.

This demo also features 42 Unique CGs, 24 Achievements, 19 Music Tracks.

At the default settings, with auto-play turned on, the game took me about 1.5 hours to finish depending on the choices that were made. This time obviously will vary person to person depending on their choices and their reading speed.

You can find the demo at the following links. In the demo you can play through the prologue and the beginning of the first chapter.

Interested in the Kickstarter Campaign? That's great to hear! You can find the campaign here.

Edit: I've heard that the windows link for mediafire keeps going back and forth between working and not working. If it's not working, please use the dropbox link. I'm currently trying to fix the mediafire link.

how do you open Ren'py games that was downloaded from 4Shared?
DestinyFailsUs Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To open a Ren'Py game downloaded from 4Shared.

1. Downloading the game:
- Click on the 4Shared Link
- Click the Download Button located next to the Share, Twitter, and G+ Buttons
- Click the Free Download Button and wait the 20 seconds before the download automatically begins

After this point, these directions should be the same for all ren'py games that are in decompressed files, regardless of website it was downloaded from. 

2. Upzipping the Download:
- Go to the location that your file was downloaded
- Follow directions located here:…

3. Opening the Game
- Open the folder that appeared when decompressing the zip file.
- Locate the application file (should be located in the same place that you can see the game, lib, and renpy folders), the application file usually is named after the game's title.
- Double click it.
I have never used Mac or Linux, so I don't know what the file types are exactly for those operating systems. For Windows, the application file with be ".exe". 

The game should load shortly after that.
