Just finished my first complete playthrough after dying a bunch of times. I love the suspense of all the different possibilities, and their implications. I loved it! My first itchio game with voice acting, which was well done, and the sprites were very pretty. I've played a bit of foretold affair too (got it from steam tho). Thank you for making this game!
Yes, the day has finally arrived where everyone can enjoy seeing people drown miserably over and over, haha. It's fantastic to be able to put this game out there for people to try. Thank you so much for all the support that you’ve shown us during development! We seriously hope you enjoy the finished work.
If you do plan on giving the game a go, we invite you to share your experience. That could get you the game’s soundtrack, artbook, or a key to one of our commercial games!

There is a bit of a known issue with Lake of Voices. If you played demos from several months ago, saves from those demos will not be compatible with the finished game. Loading an old, unfinished file up will eventually lead to errors that will stop you from continuing. However, all you have to do is start from the beginning. You can use the skip or tab keys to fast forward through text you've already gotten and get back to the point you were at in a short amount of time. If you're worried any of your files might not work right, you can delete saves by hovering over the slot with your cursor and pressing the delete key. Then you can you can have totally fresh saves while playing through.

Thank you very much! I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the playthroughs that you do. And I really appreciate you giving AFA a try as well :D.
I just finished recording the demo version of this for my channel and just now saw that it has been fully released.
So many feels happened in my playthrough, that I can't wait until I download this new version for the next playthrough for my channel.
Keep up the good work, I really love this game.
Oh, cool! Thank you very much for giving it a go. I'm glad it left an impression :D. There is that issue with demo saves potentially not working in the full version, so I'm sorry for the inconvenience if you have to start from the beginning and skip back to where you were.
I cannot download this at all, the download says forbidden about halfway through.
On our end, we put the file up to be downloaded and it is set to be freely available. Whether or not the download succeeds isn't up to us, I'm afraid. It depends on Itch.io itself, internet access, whether there's something on a computer that may block files from being downloaded, etc. All we can suggest is trying again later or looking into what those other problems might be. I'm very sorry we can't be of help!
Having a bit of trouble with the full version routing back to the main menu when I get to the bridge for day 2 if saved over a demo save or any slot after a demo save. So if I saved in the demo on slot 2 then slot 3 on would route me to the main menu. At least I think that's what is going on because I was able to make it through so long as I didn't load past slot 2.
When I do make it through, Lu's branch seems to be inaccessible. I've gone through pretty much every option following your guide as well, is his branch intended to end with him dead? It would make sense but I thought I'd ask just in case.
If your save slots are causing you trouble, I'd recommend deleting all of them rather than saving over them. Hover over the slot with your cursor and hit the delete key on your keyboard. That's the safest way to avoid possible issues.
The guide is a little bit tricky to avoid spoilers, haha. It says you can 'consider helping the guide'. Not that you 'must help the guide', like it says in Margret's section. So, yes, when it comes to Lu, there's something else that can be done~
If you need more of a hint, let me know! Good luck having everything work out :]
I'll try deleting them, I considered it but then thought not to just in case for more information and all the slots seem to be affected too beyond the first save slot. I'll just delete them all and start over, shouldn't be an issue.
Yeah, I tried helping, I tried watching and I tried letting the choice time-out and all resulted in Kikka dying or him either dying or never being seen again. x'D I first tried branching off from Bemelle's story but when none of those options worked, I went back and made sure to get 0 affection with everyone else, then I tried it with Margret making it to day 2 and I haven't been able to get to the second day with Margret alive without being routed back to the main menu. I'm pretty sure I've tried every combination while still gaining the sufficient affection with Lu and nothing seems to be working.
I hope that works out for you!
And here's the specifics, instead of just some hints;
-Lu needs to have three affection points by the start of Night 2. That means saying he has worth after sticking with him during Night 1 then spending time with just him during Day and choosing both options that show concern/kindness towards Lu
-Margret needs to be alive on Night 2
-When deciding to throw the lantern or just watch, you have to remain undecided until the time runs out
-Finally, when the guide has left Margret and Kikka to wait, you have to go check on him
Following that I am still getting the ending where Kikka falls in and Lu dies... Trying to avoid spoilers but like I'm trying to make sure this is just operator error and not something breaking. Though if it were to break I would be the one to break it. T^T
I'm sorry ;;. I'll have to give at least a little spoiler. That is how it's meant to go. You've gotta keep trucking past that horrible event and keep trying to get everyone to the other side. It isn't over until it's truly over.
And be sure to bring Margret along, instead of Bemelle.
