Hello! I didn't originally plan on making a new thread for TLG but I decided to do it just because it would be terrible to not make the game accessible to everyone!
Here is the most recent version:
I do not know if I will continue this game as college and many other things are occupying my time, but keep a look out just in case!
Also! Thank you everyone who has ever made fanart, videos, pretty much anything to do with the game, I had no idea it would get such a good reception. Everything you guys have drawn really means a lot to me! <3
TLG has an official tumblr here:

I actually really like the updated sprite for Irene! While sticking to Madotsuki's is nice it's also kind of limiting.
Also, I don't know how open you'd be to commentary or little suggestions about the game…
bleet 10/19/11 (Wed) 06:01:46 No. 956
All right! First official game art/concept art/whatever of Irene!
The pattern on her dress is called Houndstooth and though it’s my absolute favorite fabric pattern it is terrible to draw so omitting it is perfectly fine.
Also I can’t draw crowbars.
If you have anything you would like to say/report/whatever by all means go ahead, any and all input is super useful and appreciated!

Hey I'm glad to see that this project didn't get forgotten about! While I'm sad to see the YN style go (I'm a fan of the look) I have to say the new sprites look really nice still.
The dialog I'd have to get use to but I don't think would be too bad in these sort of games. Are you planning on keeping Irene a silent character then?
irene's reaction to shipping bleet 10/20/11 (Thu) 07:22:27 No. 1012 >>1011
Yeah I know, departing from the YN style was a bit nerve-wracking since, you know, this is a yume nikki fan game and I personally have no qualms with other games who use the same sprite style, but I felt like I just needed to branch out. So far the people on tumblr are pretty okay with it!
And no, actually I plan on Irene talking, making observations, etc. But aside from the intro and some future scenes, she will be silent. I just, considering that she's entering a mirror world instead of exploring her dreams for instance, I'd want her to have some sort of personality about it rather than taking it as if it were normal, like Mado and Sabi and etc etc do.
I'm going for a more linear feel, but there will still be lots of exploration and etc!

I haven't played this game before, but it looks like a likely candidate for review (well, after the next update.)
I'm really digging it so far. It's got a lot of atmospheric areas, as well as some ones that are bizarre (in a good way). It's really hard to find this kind of thing, but I'd like to mention it in terms of the Apartments and the Dark Room in 2kki, the City, Sugar Hole, Pipes and Phone Poles, and Apartments in .flow. As far as the worlds and exploration goes, it has a whole big lump of the stuff I like (interesting, realized worlds). My favourites so far are the complex where she lives and the gameboy world, which looks like something I'd have pre-sleep dreams about after playing lots of Pokemon. It's surreal and bizarre enough to make it interesting on its own; the edgewrapping actually helps cement this feeling into the area for me.

Spoilers I guess? I. Honestly wasn't expecting that. I enjoyed this game before, and now… it's just improved like tenfold. I don't know what I was expecting, but wow. That opening. Her actually having a nice little story. ALL THE REFERENCES IN THE PAINTINGS AND GRAVEYARD. The Graveyard makes me worried. I still haven't figured out what that button does. But yes, three effects in so far. Loving it. Still some glitches here and there, I think you've noticed them by now. Namely, the tinting not changing when you 'wake up' prematurely which I think can be fixed by having an event just make the bedroom have a constant tint or something. That, and whenever the System menu thing changes, like in the Gameboy world. But man I am loving the story (was reminded of May at first), the atmosphere, the mirror, the amusing snark from Irene whenever she inspects something because I literally inspect everything I can find. None of the fauna have responded back to me so far sadly. But yes just. Just wow I love it. Just. Wow. Stop making me feel bad about procrastinating on ever releasing my own fangame nyehhh.

Yes, I'm glad that you updated "The Looking Glass" because I really liked 0.03. I think it's an enormous plus that you added the intro and several real world locations because it definitely makes your game stand out. The mansion is creepy (I was constantly waiting for someone to pop out) and I got a bit scared despite the fact that I played in the morning. Now, waiting for the next version!

First off let me post updated contact info:
TLG has an official tumblr here:
My personal tumblr:
Thank you very much! I knew I was taking a huge risk, doing what I did with my game. The only other game I know of that went for a similar feel was May, as you said, and really it was that game that helped me realize what I wanted to do with TLG. But since May is such a pretty, cute, and appealing game, I was unsure for a long time if mine would meet the standard it set!
Your reVIEW OMG. Thank you so much for it wow I am just blown away by it! I didn't expect this; then again I was the one who was slaving away at it and getting bent out of shape about glitches and bugs (which still occur sadly) so this review was a wonderful pick-me-up, thank you so much. :'3

Mishka, I haven't read your whole review of The Looking Glass (cus I try to avoid spoilers about

It's alright, the reviews don't really say much about the game narratives themselves. The only stuff I tell you is stuff you already know from the introductory sequence.

I got it running on Linux, so it would probably work on a Mac, too. I did have some problems, which I'm not sure if they're the game or my system. The game is incredibly laggy in Irene's bedroom, there's no sound (that's probably me), and after I used the Yeti effect, Irene became stuck facing in the same direction.
Now, the bug report's outta the way, I love the game so far. I like that I can look at things and Irene has something to say about them. I like that Irene talks, in general. I like the art in the intro. I expect great things from the finished game. Keep up the good work!

Okay, I just started the game up again and reloaded my save, and Irene's still stuck facing downwards, and I can't leave her room! She'll starve!

I found a couple bugs.
The first is that attempting to go through a door in the apartment world after killing any of the shades there with the crowbar seems to freeze the game. I was thinking it might've been due to the blood splatter that appears after killing, so I checked to see if it freezes if I unquip the crowbar between killing and going through the door… and it still did. That doesn't exactly rule out the blood splatter as being a possible cause of the freeze. Who knows, though. The second bug was that I noticed that if you walk behind the bookshelves in the top end of the school's Library, instead of the bookshelf going completely over your sprite, your head ends up going over the bookshelf's sprite, so it looks like you have your head stuck through the bookshelf. Looks kinda neat, but probably something you wanna fix, even so.

Anonymous 01/18/12 (Wed) 05:22:58 No. 3080
Agree that it's a bit cumbersome, but I don't think it should be shortened to that extent either. I think the main issue's that there are a couple completely unnecessary words. It could be something like, "Well, you seem to be fine, if a bit physically tired." Then the second sentence could either be left as-is, or it could be changed to something like "You seem quite healthy otherwise, though." or, "I'm sure you'll feel better after a good night's sleep."
>>3072 you trigger the switch on both tombstones, then return to the first floor and enter whichever middle door isn't boarded up. There should be a pair of double-doors here that were previously boarded up, but can now be entered due to those switches you triggered.

Anonymous 02/02/12 (Thu) 18:56:20 No. 3657
>>3654 was the crowbar freezing one of the glitches that's supposed to be fixed? Cause I noticed that still happening at spots. I ended up testing a bit more this time though, so results of that below. Also, one thing to note here is that when I say "freeze", I don't mean the whole game freezing. It's just being unable to move Irene or open the menu. First, I tried killing an enemy in the debug room, then tried using the door back to Irene's room, which made the game freeze. Second, I tried killing an NPC inside one of the apartment rooms, then tried exiting through the door, which made the game freeze. I then reloaded and returned, then killed the NPC a second time, but this time, I exited by pushing '9' to wake up, which ended up working fine, without any freeze or other issues. I then tried killing an NPC in the neon world, then exiting the door back to the nexus, which worked perfectly fine. Lastly, I went to the snow world, found the Yeti, killed it, then went back to the nexus door and exited, which also worked fine. When testing all this, I also noticed that if I switched to the rollerblades after killing an NPC, then that'll also cause a freeze. Even if you switch effects multiple times before switching to the rollerblades, it still seems to happen, though if you transition to a different screen first, then switching will no longer freeze you. I also found out that while in that frozen state, pushing the 9 key to wake up still works to teleport you, and that things went back to normal after doing so. This made me wonder if pushing 9 to teleport also worked during those door freezes, so I tried at the apartments, and it ended up half-working. Basically what happened was that I killed the NPC, opened the door and froze, then pushed 9 to teleport, and this caused the teleport animation to play, but instead of teleporting, I went through the door, and was unfrozen. Shortly after going through the door, the 'screen blur' effect from teleporting ended up displaying, but I didn't actually telport. I also noticed that If I went back to one of the NPCs in an apartment and killed them right after that and tried exiting, then the freeze no longer happened for some reason. Well, that's all I've got. I know it's kinda long, but maybe it'll be helpful in figuring out what the cause of these freezes is.

I wonder if the time listing of our posts goes off our computer clocks or something silly like that.
bleet 02/02/12 (Thu) 21:28:40 No. 3661
I can honestly say I have no idea why it freezes like that. I took out killing in the apartment complex but knowing that the rollerblades make it freeze too really confuses me.
I do know that the glitch works on maps with teleports that move the player around the map, instead of moving to a new area. The apartment complex is all one big map. All I can think of is maybe the event is still "running" when the character is killed, which is why the game freezes when switching to other events.
The funny thing is that the killing event in the mansion works just fine; Irene does not freeze, rollerblades or teleporting, so perhaps there's something in that code that can help with this other situation.
Thanks for being really in depth about it. I was hoping simply taking out the killing would solve it and to be honest reading that it still didn't upset me a lot! But you've made me start thinking about it seriously and perhaps there IS a solution and I'll geton that as quickly as possible. Thank you! :)

Anonymous 02/04/12 (Sat) 15:53:25 No. 3740
Since most of the changes between this version and the last weren't all that big, you could -probably- copy and paste your save files from the last version into the new version without any issues. Doing so has caused no problems for me so far. RPGmaker savefiles are the files named "Save01.lsd" "Save02.lsd" and so on.
I'm pretty sure that means the effect it gives isn't implemented into the game yet.

DR75 04/17/12 (Tue) 05:34:12 No. 5185
Haven't tried the latest bug fixes, but some things I've noticed other than the shift stuff:
-Glowstick effect remains permanent until leaving mirror. -Some really weird glitch happened to me where the Rollerblades remained in effect, keeping the same speed. Bicycle or Rollerblades again make Irene even faster. -Not sure if related to the glitch above, but when I kill too many shadow NPCs in the town, I freeze and cannot do anything but wake up. Then when messing with the bike, I accidentally activated sticky keys, it happened, and trying to wake up would just make a negative noise, causing me to just close the game. Really weird. Just noticed it was mentioned before too, so, huh. -The Trench menu vanished after trying it out once. Other than that it seems really solid. Noticed a lot of Homestuck references this time, interesting touch. Also I love what you did with the Gameboy Pokemon world so much. Though getting access to the long hair did make me return to normal, not sure if that was fixed in the shift update or not. Also when I got to the end of the sewer area I was just like… what. That part, oh god.
bleet 04/17/12 (Tue) 05:42:38 No. 5186
ok here's the sitch on what i've done so far:
-since the glowstick messes with screen tinting, and some of the areas still do screen tinting, and i was more concerned about those than others, it won't return to normal unless you're in the ocean or the nexus, or unequipping it manually. this was laziness on my part so i will work on it now since i figured out the problem (but like i said was too lazy to fix it)
-i encountered that problem too sometimes during testing, but from what i had listed in the common event section, it shouldn't logically be happening, and would not repeat itself if i actively tried to get it to happen again. not too sure what that is just yet
-there might be some shadow npcs left over that i didn't fix with the crowbar event. laziness again, my bad, i will fix them all shortly
-the bike effect cannot 9 out but you can unequip it to do so
-found the variable problem and fixed it
-the long hair effect was added in on last notice so i completely forgot about that, thank you for bringing it up, i've fixed it
i'll go ahead and tend to these bugs and such! best to squash them out now rather than later

Okay, here are the bugs I found in the v0.05 bug fix 2:
1. Lisa dialogue: "But to be on the safe side, I'm going to a you to come back tommorow ok?". I should be "ask you to come back"; it must have gotten cut off somehow. 2. Pic#1, Passability glitch outside school entrance. 3. Same area as 2, you can walk below the trees (wasn't like that in version 0.04). 4. Pic#2, House World, library - one spot on a shelf is missing the dialogue box (I don't think it's supposed to). 5. Pic#3, Apartment World - room 207 teleports you to the outside of room 202; the door for 207 remains open after this too, if you go back to check it. 6. You can obtain infinite flashlight effects from the flashlight get. 7. Effect glitch where Irene's sprite doesn't change back to normal when going through the big mirror, if you have an effect equipped (not sure if it's every effect). 8. Apartment World - If you use the peek hole for Room 202 (Behind The Walls) for a second time before leaving, Irene still asks if the Faceless Man can see her, even though he is clearly gone. 9. Apartment World - The door to exit area 1A doesn't have an animation for opening (same hall where room 202 is). 10. Sewers - When you leave the End of the sewers, the lights will be on (even without the flashlight) in the next room until you walk to the tile before the first light. 11. House World - Child Ghost on the right side of mansion says "no bit deal" (probably supposed to be "no big deal"). 12. Switching from the Rollerblades (or Bike) to the White Queen will glitch your speed; if you keep switching them, you can keep getting faster. The only way to reset your speed is to examine the <3.txt on Irene's computer. 13. After the part where Vincent talks to Irene outside the school, if you go back into the school and come out, the event will happen again. 14. When you buy the bike effect, you receive 2 rather than 1. Lag Glitches: note: I'm not sure if these are only happening on my computer or not, since no one else has mentioned them yet. 15. Apartment World - For some reason, the dark areas in the basement (starting at Basement A) are a little laggy, unless you turn on your flashlight. This seems to be the case for all areas where you need the flashlight; except the sewers, where it's only if you equip the flashlight and have it turned off. 16. Pokeymans World is extremely laggy. I assume the reason is the same as in another fangame (Mewn), and if it is, I know how to fix it myself (if this is only happening to me; nobody else mentioned it in the Mewn thread). The problem is, I can't seem to find which event causes the Game Boy Color border to appear on screen. Anyways, enjoyable as always. From what I could see in Pokeymans world, I think an entire horror game should be made in that style; It's really interesting, not to mention nostalgic, but it also has an unsettling feeling to it. Also, story progression is something I'm looking forward to in the game overall.

Thank you for such a good list! I tackled all of the problems and I am concerned about the lag issues as well.
It has to do with the border in the pokemon world and the "light" in the dark areas being a continually overlaid picture.
I'm not quite sure how to fix them quite yet, as in if running a parallel process is the problem or not. Might have to reroute flashlight interaction to a common event slot too, hm…

So, about the GBC border for Pokeymans World, I made a post before about one way to fix it. The post was >>3782 . Check it out and see if it helps.
I'm not sure if something similar would work for the flashlight's light though.

You could also put an "erase event" command after the show picture (if that's how you programmed it), it'll keep you from having to mod EVERY entrance/exit to PKMN world to show a picture. (I'm assuming it's a parallel process event?)

Excuse me, but… Where can I find the Cybot Effect?
bleet 04/30/12 (Mon) 21:40:23 No. 5416
You can only acquire the Cybot effect from the green haired robot woman in the Apartments if she is standing and walking around, kind of like Oreko in .flow.
She can be found either in the lobby or in her room on the first floor, 106.

Honestly, your game is pretty good. It has some sweet worlds, and… The event on Inverted Apartments just scared me. For real. Not mentioning the Graveyard World… That place is so well-crafted I'd spend hours and hours walking around and talking into the ghosts just for fun. Seriously.
Just a glitch I've found. At GBC world, when you go back to the start of the area from the forest, Irene gets stuck in a black screen, and can only teleport back with the mirror.

I love everything about this game.

The Alice effect is cosmetic right now, but it has a much bigger purpose! So until it is coded right, it stays in the Debug room only! Unfortunately, you cannot find the effect in-game.
If you want it, you can get it, and you can wear it just fine! But it is not "official".
Also, you need 1000$ to buy the bike. You get money by killing NPCs.
I'm glad you like the game, thank you for being so kind about it. :3

Sorry about that, I didn't know. I would delete the post, but I didn't assign a password.
Still, it'd be nice if I could get an answer re:
the dead body in the sewer
. If there's something more to do in that room, I can't seem to figure it out.

Here's a couple more glitches (if you haven't found them yet):
- 1. (left pic) I'm not sure if this is intended at all, but the Octopus effect seems to be able to bypass a lot of tiles that you shouldn't be able to walk on. Pictured is just one area that only the Octopus effect can go. I haven't checked everywhere, but it seems this "glitch" may be exclusive to the sewers (including the entrance, where there are lots of things to climb over with the Octopus effect).
- 2. (right pic) Another thing about the Octopus effect, is that these pipes appear to be in front of Irene, rather than behind her. Again, apparently only in the Octopus effect. I don't know if those are the only things that are like this.
I think these passability glitches probably have something to do with the "[Octo]" tilesets.
Looking at the game in RPG Maker: it doesn't appear that there is anything else to see in that area at the moment (other than the little bit of text you get).

just wanted to comment and say, oh my god,
the chess world is absolutely heartbreaking. the music and general atmosphere is just… wow. amazing job. i just want to hug the queen REALLY BADLY… i felt this way in homestuck too, haha. CHESS FEELS are you planning to put more in that world?
bleet 05/27/12 (Sun) 06:43:14 No. 5600
yeah i am planning on doing more with it haha, i'm planning on doing more with about everything! but recently i lost all of my work files for the game so production is gonna be super slow again.
i'm glad you like the game! and to be honest the king and queen weren't originally going to be references to homestuck in particular but i decided hey why not! :3
Nimetön, The Thread Hijacker 06/08/12 (Fri) 06:16:20 No. 5713 >>5473
I second these.
There are more tiles that you can walk on with the octopus effect.
You can also access the door from the wall.
You can walk everywhere in the water.
Nimetön, The Thread Hijacker 06/08/12 (Fri) 06:55:26 No. 5715
And here is my second Long Hair effect.
I can't recreate that. I simply used the effect button and it transformed into the regular sprite sitting down.
I feel very selfish and retarded for posting so much.
Understandable !TBn8E86J8M 06/08/12 (Fri) 08:17:25 No. 5716
Nothing selfish about pointing out bugs or potential issues. I'd figure most developers would want that sort of thing, actually.
bleet 06/08/12 (Fri) 20:10:49 No. 5723 >>5716 >>5715
No there indeed isn't anything wrong with it and I appreciate the enthusiasm to bug report!
I'm aware of most of these issues, though I guess I should have made it clear that I am about 90% more active on the devblog than here and I have talked to tons of people pointing out bugs in the game. (since tumblr is generally filled with more receptive people than uboa ever is)
But still! Thank you very much for all of your help and I'll be sure to double check if the bugs are still there.

Loved the game. Technically and graphics wise it goes above and beyond all YN fangames, and YN itself. Text interactions flow very well too. All it needs now is more content :D

Just tried the game out today after ignoring this thread for a while. Got a pleasant surprise from it. Really great to see a game with so much promise like this, please don't let the project die because I'd love to see how the story ends and what else you have planned for this game.
At first I had my doubts about the flavor text, but I love it. The humor feels very much like it came from the Mother series or something, and since I like interacting with everything it really makes me chuckle a lot more than I should be at times. You worked in text in a way that worked.

This game. Oh god this game.
I love it so much. But for some god awful reason the game always lags for me in the Pokemon world. I can't get the crowbar because of the extreme amount of lag. But otherwise I love it all so far. c: One of my top favorites for sure.

Why would it be up to "everyone in general" how your game will turn out?
Taking cues from others is fine, but I wouldn't listen too much to other people if I were you.
I liked the old faces more. These look like something from Cartoon Network.
bleet 01/22/14 (Wed) 20:37:05 No. 8979
By where the game goes, I meant if the thread will stay in fg or move to other games or something.
Also I really appreciate that you liked the old talksprites! However they were in dire need of an upgrade. They still reflect some of the old style, , especially in the eyes, but are much cleaner and expressive now, which is very important for what I'm going to do with the game.
