oya oya, i give this game a 3/10
But a weak little femboy can't hurt me because, Nanomachines son!
It hardens in response to physical trauma, you can't hurt me akano.

the downloads aren't working

Yeah mine to

Holy shit, not what I was expecting. Should have read the disclaimer first lmao. Great game btw; love the style. ^ ^

This short visual novel was pretty cool! I really like the art and simplistic OST :D

great game i luv it 10/10

I've played quite a few visual novels all of different durations and genres, when I saw that it was multi-ending I thought it could be good since that genre is my favorite, the art seemed great I'm not going to deny that it's quite nice, but the story it's a shit and a big one, 1 how is it possible that a skinny short fucking femboy has the strength to knock you out, 2 in the middle of the street with all these people watching and in broad daylight, 3 he doesn't even have a history of background the subject is like, Oh yes I kill because yes, it's not long enough to give you good character development, I don't know why people like it so much it seems like a tremendous shit to me, it's like all the effort is I would have used it only in the drawings, in conclusion, good art, lousy story 5/10. Could have been better.

i want you to create a game like this so you can actually see how hard and difficult it actually is to make one im not saying i can make one but somone actually sat down and made this i agree that it needs some work to do but i think its great

Ok, the game is not good and I understand that someone made an effort to create it, I'll be honest I don't think I can create a visual novel because honestly I don't know how to draw, but something that I praised about his work was especially if I had to divide a visual novel into two parts in the visual this subject would get a 10/10 but the story hardly reaches a 3/10, the problem is how short it is I'm not saying you can't make a good short novel, but the creator didn't manage to create a story So there was no development and the game itself says so, when you select what I did to deserve this, it answers nothing, there is no background, it is just an empty character who says he has been "mistreated" by harming an innocent, you realize they don't even give him a background He only does it to his psychopathy because yes, that's why I gave it a 5/10, it's not good but it's not terribly bad either, it doesn't seem great to me but it isn't the worst either. (If I was a bit aggressive in the previous comment I apologize it was at night I was really looking for a good game so my tired brain reacted quite badly when I was disappointed)/

Well this went quite disturbing! I'm a huge fan of mixing in cute plus horror. Loved the art style as well. Really enjoyed this one! Here's my gameplay of it...I added in some sound and video effects so if you enjoy my video please consider giving me a sub! Thanks for a great game Vinaera! 

Hey good visual novel I thought the very small differences in how you react leading to very different outcomes was awesome. I couldn't for the life of me find the last ending but that's fine it was really interesting. Here's my playthrough it's first in a compilation.

how do i get onto game?

Very well written and creepy story. Great job!

Short and sweet game, had fun replaying 10/10

I remember watching Gloom play this a long time ago, I played it for myself recently and oh my the nostalgia. I love this game sm <33

Well I felt like there was nothing but a grizzly demise for me. The art was nice and really jarring to the game story, he looked so kind and small and really lured me into playing the game.

I have played this game quite a few times and I have to say, I LOVE IT! 

Opinions on Akano are mixed and I STILL KINDA LOVE HIM?! 

It pretty cool, thou shame we can’t learn more about Akano and why he is .. like this… or I just can’t get all the endings xD 

On vin's toyhouse page you learn why he is like this :) His backstory is shown

Oh thanks!  


sorry, how do i find that page? i'm curious about his backstory too :)

Found it~! https://toyhou.se/vinillust

I want him so bad

Just finished the game! I played it with my friend and we found all the endings this is a really awesome game!

Played it and had quite a fun time, what a sweetheart;

Very cool game but it could be a bit longer. I recommend it.

Will you please release a version

for mobile? Like android or IOS

Because I wanna Play it and I don't

Have a Computer or an Apple Phone

I got this game and i love it, i just wish it was longer and you could have more then 5 endings, prob one where you can be in-love with him?

ofc someone would want a game where u boyfriend him

I liked the game but it's maybe too short , maybe you should add some others endings like one to fall in love with him ?

i loved the game, i just wish the gameplay was longer and that we got more time to spend meeting Akano and learning abt his character


great game love it 10/10 umm what did you iuse to make it?

this game is filled with edgy, unrealistic shock humor. the art is nice, and the custom options are cool, but thats about it. use of the r slur, fatphobia and just general bullshit. wouldnt recommend to anyone with morals.

fatphobia lol

"fatphobia" IM DEAD 

Dude, he's a a serial killer, I don't think he cares about being canceled for saying the r slur or "fatphobia" (which doesn't make sense-). His entire character lacks morals because any normal person wouldn't murder anyone to begin with.

how to play using linxus


Nice game! A bit random and off but it's quite a wonderful play even though I had to get the last ending through a walkthrough hehe

(1 edit)

It was a great game, but beware!  Update: I got murdered a few times.

"I got murdered a few times" grouchbag said, casually

well s**t happens amirite?

The outcomes and response options felt a bit random or rushed at times, though I wont go into tons of details for spoiler reasons.

But overall it was an enjoyable read and the antagonist was very creepy, which I enjoy in novels like these. Good work!

Reminded me of a yandere



yeah,i clear the game

Loved it!

emm hello idk if that's a problem to creator but you can clearly find scripts and images in files, someone might copy it or stole your game :(( 

sorry for bad english

where do you go to play it?

Deleted 126 days ago

you dont need to be condescending. such behavior is gross to see on a person. 

Idk if you've already figured it out, and Idk if you've ever played a game before, but you go to files and then go to downloads. Then from there it'll ask you to extract all, then click on it, wait for it to load. And then go back to downloads and click on the file that says The Diner without the .zip at the end. When you enter that file, basically click on The diner.exe. I hope this helps

Is there only one good ending? I'm not sure if I have all of them or just 4 endings and I don't know how to get the last one. I liked the game.

There's 2 (kinda) the true ending has you escape 

can i still marry him even tho he killed me?

i hope

Will you plan on making it for browser and mobile compatible?

Are you planning or already making a new game?

The game is amazing and scary-  (SPOLIER KINDA??) 

so the endings i've gotten was that i've been added to his collection, killed him, and "saw" it all (get it? cause he stabbed me in the eye?) BUT anyways i saw that there was a true ending and i've wanted to get it.. someone help please?
