Hi, I bought this game on steam and it stopped right after everyone got their new clothes. It always send me back to main menu. Is it fixable or do I need to wait for updates?

Hi! Have you played the demo or beta? If so, please make sure you uninstall them and start a brand new save file as demo saves are not compatible. If not, please reinstall anyway and skip through the game to get back to that point - this is where the routes start, so there shouldn't be any issue there. Thank you!

I LOVE FAWN SO MUCH I CAN'T HANDLE IT ALKJDHFAD

Currently holding off on finishing the game until the voice patch comes out because I really want to play through his route fully voiced, but this game is SO incredible! I was in love since the demo, and I'm even more in love now. 

Phenomenal work, you're all amazing! <3

Is there no demo?

it have demo on steam... back then TDS also have demo on itch but it seem like they removed it...

Oh okay. Thank you so much!

hello!may I ask? I dont know if it annoys you or not,I'm sorry if it is

has this game fully released yet?The game's status was "released" but I asked one of my friend maybe a week ago to make sure before buying the game,he said the game ended here.He couldn't continue

Hello! This is the after credits scene, where the game finishes.

ah It just ended right before Illran said Soren wanted to meet Leos

Raen and Leos reunited in Zarryns lab->credits scene->Raen/Leos travelling to another unknown city->Illran show up and said Soren was asking for Leos->game over

ah yeah ofc I havent played this game yet,I was just retelling what my friend said so sorry if I made any mistake while explaining

Hey there! Yes, as stated before, this is where the game finishes.

Is the full voice patch coming out soon? I read the note says April to early May, but it's almost June. Also, thanks for making the game, and I enjoyed it so far.

Hi ! I plan to buy your game in the near future, and I would like to ask a question. Will there be updates to have other languages besides English? I don't know if you've ever thought of that. English doesn't bother me that much but it would be nice to know if we will have other languages than that.

(sorry for my English I use a translation and continue like that, your game I know in advance that it is great !)

(+1)

Hi! Right now we only plan to have The Divine Speaker in English due to the length of the game. Thank you!

Hello! Can I ask for a update on progress for the voice patch? It's been a little while since the reminder on voice acting patch that came out 49 days ago so I was just wondering about how much voice acting has been completed at this current moment and to hopefully get a general estimate on how much longer it will take. No pressure or anything of course! I'm just curious about it is all.

(+2)

Hey! We'll announce when it's ready. We have a more detailed post about it on Patreon but rest assured our editor is going as fast as she can to complete it.

Where can i get more information of the characters??, like the height or something like that? :0

Are you going make the divine speaker for android?

Hey! No plans to release on Android at this time.

I played Cyne route, waiting on playing the other two until the patch comes out. Fawn is my favorite and Leos VA is amazing!

Are you still making Beyond the Abyss game?

I say this because the game really excites me, and if you decide to abandon it or leave it as the last one on your list, I would like to know it to prepare myself mentally for it.

Thank you.

(+1)

Not abandoned, but on a small hiatus while we finish some other things up!

Thanks for answer me!

I'll wait patiently for as long as it takes<3

Hello, I would like to know when the French translation will be available, being the original ford I understood that it was planned?

Cliffhanger???

Hi,

I have a question. I'm from Germany and Steam blocks most of the "porn-games" (+18). So also your lovely game 'The Divine Speaker'. 

Now my question. Do you know if I can activate the Steam-Key? Because on the Steam-website I can't see your game because it is blocked. Or can I play it without Steam?

And I really want to play your game.

Really frustrated but friendly greetings from Germany,

Tia ^^

Yes, you can either download it directly from itch or use the code to redeem it on Steam, even in blocked countries.

I recognize a few of the Voices is An Imdb or something of the such for these people tried looking up the names but not much luck anyone can refer to me a place i could look that info up?

Here for you!

Thanks so much!! 

Is the voice acting patch out yet? and if so where can we get it?

Not yet! Apparently soon but we don't know more! Let's try to be patient haha

(+6)

Soon! To put a long story short, we're having to rerecord a section of Leos route due to loss of a file, but we'll have the Leos route patch up soon :) thank you for your patience! 

(+1)

Thank you for your answer !

(+5)

oh my god I was scrolling and I thought that said "life" and not "file" and my heart dropped into my stomach

(+1)

Any rough idea of how much time that might need, if you feel you comfortable providing one? Like... days, weeks, months?

My friend and I are absolutely in love with this game! Excellent work, Two and a Half Studios. 

We completed Cyne's route first, but we're really looking forward to Leos' and Fawn's paths. (Leos is my favorite so far because of the amount of emotion he puts into his voice in the common path. He likes Fawn best because "Fawn is baby.")

We're waiting until they're fully voiced before we go after them. :)

On that note, I hope that the voice patch comes out soon! I've been checking here twice a day for the past 3 days just to see if it has dropped yet, and we just finished Cyne's path yesterday!

And the side pairings are both *chef kiss*. We can't wait for the prequel.


5 stars for you, my friends!

(+3)

I'm holding back on playing Leos' route until the voice patch is out, but have absolutely been loving this game so far. Suspense, emotions and comedy plus beautiful art and amazing voice acting. Also, a decent amount of spice. uvu It's all there! If I was to be really picky, I could point out what seem like minor plot holes to me, but they're not spoiling my fun at all. I've just been really into this ever since playing the demo!

(+1)

Just making a comment to remind myself to come and grab this once I'm back home and on my PC. Luckily the Dear Monster Kickstarter taught me of this VN's existence.

Hope you enjoy! <3

Bonjour j'ai acheter le jeux mais je sait pas comment on change la langue pour le mettre en français, quelqu'un pourrait m'aider s'il vous plaît ?

Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait une option française pour ce jeu

(+1)

Ah ! Merci je penser que puisque la langue originale est le français il y aurait la traduction dès sa sortie !

Boy, oh boy! What a ride my first route was! I even created this account to just simply be able to write about it and believe me, I am a super silent person online. 

Where to event start, I wonder? I like to see myself as a veteran when it's coming to visual novels. Mostly Japanese and Korean creation - till now! It was my very first time to play any creation out of that bubble and I can't express how happy I am about it!  I wanted to wait until fully voice patch to finish Leos route, but I simply couldn't. The history sucked me in, and I was not able to stop myself from finishing it. Obviously, I am going to do it one more time when the patch WILL show up, anyway ;)
The story and worldbuilding is very original and I hope for it to develop in more directions. Im already craving for more of it ;)
There's no character you can't like and until now my heart belong to Leos >D

I love how you make effort to show us different stories of different couples as well as the main one. It's quite rare, as I realize. There were so many live and emotions in them.

CGs are simply BEAUTIFUL! And, hell, there's so many of them!!! Luck of amount of nice CGs is what made me sad in so many VNs. And yours are so detailed, colorful and beautiful that I can't express how happy in fact it made me during the game. 

I wish you the best of luck and really hope, that you are not going to stop your work with VNs after this project! 

(1 edit)

Right from the start i could tell a lot of thought and work went into this VN, the backgrounds are detailed, the CG's slap, i was very impressed. I went for Leos my first time through and i suppose that says something about me. The only suggestion I have, not critique, is about the MC himself. For your future VN's (if there even are any planned), I'd wish to see a more flawed MC. Or a MC with more spunk, maybe some sarcasm, anything reallycuz right now Raen seems too good his moral compass too perfect, yeah he doesn't know much about, well, anything really, but his altruism is quite frankly so staggering that i had trouble connecting with him. As i mentioned, Leos is my favorite, i love this boy, but when Raen stated that ''we cant just leave him here'' after Leos tried to assassinate him and Fawn I was like.. really? We can't? Any person would lmao.

Also, if i didn't totally blanked out, do we ever find out if Soren wakes up at all?

I enjoyed the ride. I'll look closely for more titles from you :)

Hello. 

I bought the game a few days ago and I just saw that there is an update since. The problem is that when I click on download I have two choices: one says version 4 but is 10 days old, and the other has no version but is 8 days old. 

What is the difference, please, knowing that the platforms and names for both are the same?

Hi, please download the newest one!

(1 edit)

Okay, thank you for responding so quickly and thank you too for creating such a good game! <3

Hello, I did buy the game a few days ago, and I was pretty sure the language was in french. I didn’t have the time to play until now, but I launched it after the download to make sure everything was working. But today when I had finally the time to play I noticed that it was in english… Did I imagined it XD ? Maybe I was used to it because the demo had a french translation? Anyway, will there be a translation when the full voice acting will be released? 

Thank you in advance for your answer

Hi there! At the present time we have no plans for translations. If you would like a refund, you can contact itch.io support to request one. Thank you!

Hi there, is TDS a kinetic visual novel, or are there many branching paths with a variety of endings determined by the player's choices?

There are branching paths and many different endings :)

My download page doesn't have a steam key, what should I do?

Hi there! If you don't have a button to claim an external key you will need to contact itch support. Thank you!

I absolutely Love this game Leos is my fav <3 <3<3 everything about this game is amazing 

(1 edit)

Getting the full game tonight and super excited. I played the demo over a year ago and been anxiously waiting 😭

Hehe, might drag a friend into my nerd frenzy. Pray for them 💀👍 (More like payback for a lot of stuff- Now I’m ranting, off to the game)

Leos, lol

since the last update, DS "micro"launches for a split second then closes. surface pro 5th gen Windows 10 pro.

got help from Gabby, fixed it.  turns out the file was in the itch.io folder, but did not extract.  once extracted, ran fine

I've played a lot of VNs and this is honestly one of my favourites. I played through Cyne's route and wanted to wait for the voice patch before the other 2, but I couldn't wait and ended up playing through all the good and bad ends anyway heh.

I adore all the routes with all 3 love interests. 

The Leos x Raen route is my favourite. When I played the demo I already knew Leos was going to be my favourite and the full story is even better. Leos and Raen give off an "old married couple" vibe which I love and their backstories intertwine quite nicely. Watching them get together when neither knew what all those feelings were was too adorable and they look so very beautiful together (kudos to Leos for taking one for the team and asking others for advice lmao) ;). The reveal towards the end also hits one of my favourite fictional couple tropes! 🥰  

I look forward to anything else that comes out in the future for this series! Especially with Soren/Nox - I remember hoping Raen would just hug him or kiss him or something even though he's not a love interest. But he really did give off a potential love interest for Raen vibes. Now knowing that he was initally supposed to be the 4th route makes sense...I guess my VN romanceable character senses were tingling haha. What you did with his story in the end worked very well anyway and left me wanting more. 

Anyway, this was a fantastic game and thank you for all your hard work! I will definitely replay the unvoiced routes - especially Leos - once the full voice patch is out. :)

La demo de Android la sacaron... por favor que en algún futuro este una versión de Android completa 😞🥺

I'm a massive fan of Alphonse Mucha's art, and it's incredibly obvious that the devs are too. A lot of the fonts are straight out of Mucha's own style, and the rich and baroque circular reliefs you see on a lot of the UI is similarly extremely Mucha-esque. As an art dweeb it makes me super happy to see one of my favorite artists' styles applied so liberally and with such great effect. 

And as someone that is aggressively homosexual, I'm glad to look at the pretty boys too. Only visual novel to have ever piqued my interest, and first one to ever get me to bite the bullet and buy it. Actually been waiting on it for a while. It'd be a lot of fun to read a dev blog about their art direction decisions! I'm definitely a fan. Hope to see the full game come to Android, but I'll stick with the PC variant for the time being. 

(+1)

oh my god i cant believe its finally out!!!

ever since i played the demo i been IN LOVE with this game and now finally after soo long its here i just can't-

i will be playing the game later and i can already tell its amazing 

thank u for all your hard works on the game!! im so happy its finally here

Ever since I played the Demo of this game, I immediately fell in love with everything: The characters, their story, the art, the VAs, EVERYTHING.

And now that I've played the full game, I just have one thing to say...

WHEN WILL THE SEQUEL AND PREQUEL COME OUT???

The CGs have turned out to be more beautiful than I expected, and each route has felt "The real one" in its own way, plus the story has been incredibly interesting and colorful, and all this without mentioning the characters, something that I love of this game is that you end up literally loving ALL the characters, both main and secondary, you get immersed in their stories and end up wanting more <3.

My favorite route has been the Fawn route, because I found it to be the sweetest and most romantic route, plus Fawn has been my favorite since the demo<3<3.

The second favorite has been the Leos, I really love their VA and the way it enhances Leos personality, but it frustrated me that it took them both so long to realize that they loved each other XD, although it made sense, and their sweet moments were worth the wait <3.

My third favorite route is for Cyne, although I love Cyne's personality and his jokes make me laugh, his route felt more sexual than romantic, plus compared to Leos and Fawn, he was the most "normal" lol.

And the last place goes to the bad endings for obvious reasons, THEY MAKE ME CRY (T_T), but seriously, the bad endings are very well done and worth playing at least once.

When the voice path comes out, I'll replay the Fawn and Leos paths <3

And I really want to play the prequel to find out more about the relationship between Caspian and Amyrl (You owe me an NSFW scene from them <3).

And I really loved the relationship of Ilran and Veras, I need more of them if you do a sequel, PLEASE (And of course the others too).

And let's not forget "Nox"...

By the way, I found some small bugs, not very serious, where do I report them?

Case in point, I've fallen in love with the game before, and now I want to marry it<3<3<3<3.

I will be aware of your future projects, you have all my support, patience, and love.

Thank you very much for making this wonderful game (^///^)

(+1)

Hello! Thank you for such a lovely, detailed review! It makes us so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the game. We would love if you could send any bugs you find to support@twoandahalfstudios.com and we will get them fixed as quickly as possible.

And don't worry, we will see lots more of Illran, Veras, and the rest of the cast!

And I finished Cyne!!!

Now I will write a good review, wait a moment<3

Will there be an android release of the full game?

At this point in time we have no plan for it, but we may revisit the idea in the future!

(+1)

I finished the Leos route too, now I finally will do Cyne!
