So, maybe today I can get that godforsaken game to actually run. Chances are I won't, though, so I might spend yet another day frustrated and raging at my computer. And this time, it's not because I'm having fun.
I recently heard of a visual novel called Kana, Little Sister, which sparked my interest after reading a review on this blog. After seeing the unholy amount of praise the game had received from various other places on the internet, I decided to try it out.
And that's where the problems began. Installing the game worked fine. But running it? No cigar. Not even a cigarette butt. The screen just went black and nothing else happened.
After following a few guides on the internet and still not getting the game to run, I was at a loss. I yelled at my computer for a while (As if that would help) and then decided to give up for the day. Maybe today I'll get lucky...
All this brought to mind a lot of similar experiences, with games refusing to install, or run, no matter what I tried. Some of them I ultimately gave up on and buried my head in the sand, pretending I didn't really care. But others I persisted on getting to work, and the sweet taste of success made the games that much more enjoyable, even though some of them were pretty crappy. I guess the feeling of triumph made all the effort worth it.
So, if any of yo have the game and know a way to get it to run on Windows 7, do let me know. I appreciate any suggestions. I don't want to give up on this one yet, given all the praise I've heard for it across the web.
Well, until next time, have a good day!
