Install instructions

On Windows: Unzip the files using an unzipper program like WinZip or 7zip, then click the "hs-fansim.exe" file to run the game.

On Mac: I don't have a Mac and have never worked with one. Decompress the file and run the game, I think? Tell me if you have issues.

On Android: Download the APK, then INSTALL IT FROM YOUR "MY FILES" APP OR EQUIVALENT. Make sure it is not installing through your web browser - it will not work if it is! If you still can't get it to work, turn off Play Protect and retry. If it STILL doesn't work DM me on Twitter @noisyrobo.

I am so glad that I found this! Sersun's route made me laugh so much. Fourth-wall-breaking reader and despondant troll friend was such a good combo.

STAND THERE LIKE AN ASSHOLE also got some giggles out of me, and of course I chose it first, not caring whether it was the right choice or not. Sometimes you just gotta... click the funny prompts. It was nice to take another troll to the home-hive, though!

Magical girl the Argonaut, AKA Kirbey! Up to a certain point in the story: "I love him so much, and want to enter an odd to interpret mentor/mentee relationship with him." After That: "For the love of god please call me shithead."

Chibin- sorry, MOONSLAYER, was so fun! He was so cute, kinda reminded me of one of my little sibbos. Getting real with kiddos isn't always the easiest, but I'm glad we got to talk to him about being safe, cus I honestly was worried about him. I spent a few moments staring at the good ending picture and repeating "purrbeast boy" for a good minute though. Just for kicks.

All in all, this was fantastic, and I cannot wait for more (if you're planning on making more, that is)!
