There is this, which gives me hope:
We have stories, diaries, pictures
Of people who lived through

To give advice, to be remembered
To remember
To face fears
And tell jokes.

And they're heard.


Apparently the Boxcar Children book I read as a kid was a circa-1940s abridgment of a book from 1924! And if it's from 1924, that means the original is public domain in the U.S.A. as of this year! Yeahhh!

"I'm a knight?"
"Yes," a voice said, "and I'm a queen."
Oh! Now he understood!
"I'm in a video game?"
"Yes. Welcome to Solitaire."

I love Sakura Wars and wish the best to everyone involved with the new series (the OP's very nice, playing with the classic theme while also doing its own thing) but geez...the Kubo character designs. They're, uh, noticeable.

Salem witch mania, racism, slavery

"Mum, are there any new fairy tales?"
"Yes, many writers write fairy tales."
"No, like, stories that you tell kids to teach them not to do stupid things."
"Oh, I see. There are a few. And one that really happened."
"Settle down, I'll tell the story of Leeroy Jenkins..."

Everyone knows that unless you say "Waluigi likes this" as you "like" a post, it doesn't count

tl;dr the debug character is not named "Shaki~tsu" or "Chestnut" and was probably not supposed to be a doctor

I was in a mad dash to upload with less than 10 seconds on the clock, so there may be bugs or mysterious errors, but the 1.0 demo of Million Tone is now available for download!
