Hi there! Bought the dlc but cant seem to find the booklet in the files. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue. Im having a bit of trouble without a walkthrough lol

Hi! Normally itch.io should show you separate buttons for each files that can be downloaded, so you can check if you've clicked "download" for the booklet too. But if that's not working for some reason, you can email me at manekimushidev@gmail.com and I can share the booklet file with you directly!

hi maneki-mushi! Just wanted to start out saying how much I’ve loved the game and am dying for a sequel, prequel or more dlc. Heck, I’d read a book of this series! 

Thank you for the advice! I’m new to this platform and after checking I realized I didn’t click the button to download the additional file, I rebought it properly :) So it was me, not an issue with the download. Thank you for replying, being willing to help and for making such a great game. Just bought your Saint game to play when I get off work tonight :)

Could this game work with linux or no? 

There's no linux build (I don't have access to linux so I wouldn't be able to test any builds, and I'd feel bad releasing something potentially completely broken), but from what I understand either the Windows or Mac version should work in virtual machines/emulators? I don't know much about linux though, so I could be wrong.

I bought the DLC, but it does not seem to be working for me? Could it be because I am transferring saves?

I tried overriding the free version with the DLC's content, and it didn't change the scenes. I then tried to extract the DLC and transfer the saves into the save folder (after initially starting the game) and it still won't show...

It could indeed be the saves! The game checks for a "DLC enabled" variable to play the DLC scenes, so your saves from the free version would have this variable set to false and would fail to trigger the scenes... Sorry about that!
Have you tried starting a new game in the DLC version and choosing "Start from another chapter" to start from chapter 3? That should let you see the DLC scenes without having to replay chapters 1 and 2!

Hello! I recently discovered this game and bought this version (both the NSFW ver and the booklet) but I just tried to download the booklet and for some reason I don't seem to be able to. T____T idk if maybe it's because I'm on Mac but I did try digging into the file contents for the NSFW version since Mac likes to put things in weird places but I couldn't seem to find it. Now whenever I try to download just the booklet there is no file that can be selected to download? Just overall weird. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem and maybe how to fix it?

Love the game btw, the nuance and the twists! Love literally all the characters and currently working through romancing everyone. 

Ah that's really weird! If you email me at manekimushidev@gmail.com (using the same email as your itch.io account or attaching your payment receipt so I can check you bought the game), I can give you a link to the booklet!

the in-game content is still uncensored and hasn't changed! I just censored the screenshots to be safe/avoid showing adult content to people clicking on the page by accident.

neat

i love this game but every single time i quit the game and enter again all of my data is gone and i'm forced to start a new game which makes it practically impossible to do multiple playthroughs :( 

Oh that sucks, I'm not sure why that might be happening!  You might want to check the app's Write permissions if you're on Mac. If you're on Windows you might want to look into the save files (there should be a Saves folder inside the The Hero's Journey_Data folder) and see if things disappear when you quit the game.

Hello! I have finished Emrys route and I only have 3 CG NSFW. Is it a bug or is he the only one with 3 CG NSFW instead of 4?

Thank you

(+1)

He does also have four, but I just checked the script and it seems I forgot to make one of them unlock in the gallery. I'll make a fix for this soon! Thanks for letting me know!

Hello!! I'm absolutely loving the game so much, I had to buy dlc! But I made a mistake and didn't buy the booklet. Is there any way I can download it? I can send the $2 but I just didn't want to pay for the whole game again. 

Thank you!

(+1)

You can send me an email at manekimushidev@gmail.com and I'll give you the booklet file! Just use the email connected to your paypal/what you used to buy the game so I can check your purchase :)

(+1)

Should i have the original game first before buying this? This is a DLC, right? or is this also the full game already just with the added NSFW stuff?

(+3)

This contains the full game + the NSFW DLC, so you can buy it by itself!

i love the game so much. 

I'm glad you do :)

why is it that it always wants me to pay for the booklet again? it never saves to my pc too

Do you mean that itch.io is not letting you download the booklet? It should be available if you purchase the game for $8 or more. This will unlock the downloads for both the game files and the booklet pdf (these are separate files, you'll have to press the Download button for both).

(1 edit)

I have bought it before. even remember sending money into my paypal to buy it

Maybe you weren't logged in/you were logged into a different itch.io account? This page https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought has advice on this, or you can just look for an email from itch.io (sent to the same email address that's connected to your Paypal account). They should have emailed you when you made the purchase, and it will contain a link to the downloads.

I'm looking at the receipt. It was $6 and it allowed me to open the booklet??

Was it for "The Hero's Journey (full game)" or "The Hero's Journey (NSFW edition)"? The former would give you the files for this version of the game:
https://maneki-mushi.itch.io/theherosjourney
(this version doesn't have the NSFW content, but the purchase would have unlocked the booklet)
If it was the latter you would have been able to download the NSFW edition of the game, but not the booklet.

First, I just want to say how much I absolutely love this game- I had been following this game for a long time and remember when it all released in full. When you announced this version and the booklet I was so excited- the booklet is so lovely and adds so many details that I'm obsessed with! 

Super excited for your next game as well <3


There were some errors in the epilogue mentioned below-

.

This is the line in Emrys epilogue which cuts off-

"Sometimes he taunts you for giving your love to a man you once betrayed, and asks who" 

Could you tell me what the rest of this line is- if there are no updates for this game? 

There is also an issue when it comes to-

"Lady Catrin visits you in Brynarth, Morgan silently following." 

This section repeats a few lines. 

All the best!

Thank you so much, and I'm happy to hear you liked the booklet too! 
I'm actually going to publish a fix soon so this is helpful!






SPOILERS






Noted for Emrys's epilogue, that'll be fixed!
Just to be sure, the issue with the repeating lines occurs in the epilogue where you've spoken to the stranger? And the lines that repeat are the one you mentioned + "Paladin Tomos has been a good friend to her, she tells you... (etc)"? Or is it something else?

Yep, that's the line :)

Ah i love this so much!! And the details, insights on the booklet! *chef's kiss*

Thank you for making this (along with WD and Blank) amazing art and experience, excited for more of your works!! <3

Rhain just wants to be huge







Spelling

Missing a word - "but only one of us?


Misspelt - precious - c instead of v  



It was an amazing game! I'm on my second play-through.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! Rhain does seem to really want to be big haha. I'll fix everything and have an updated build up soon, thanks again :)

So excited to play this!! I'm having some bug issues on my end I think - it won't allow me to proceed past the first scene in chapter one. How should I fix this?

(1 edit)

are you playing on Mac, and when is it stopping exactly? If it's not showing the first CG and you can't change your settings or save, you can try either of these solutions some Mac players have used to solve this issue:

  • Right-click on the game app -> Enable Write permissions.
  • Right-click the game app -> Click "Show package contents" -> Open "Contents” folder  -> Open "Mac OS" folder -> Double-click on the executable called “The Hero’s Journey”. This will launch the game through the terminal.
