I like your art and your style, especially backgrounds.
Solanaceae: Another Time

HEY so I played this game a short while ago and ITS SO GOOD oMGGgg, The series as a whole is genuinely one of my favourites I've seen recently!!!! Even tho this game came out like, quite a while ago; im really REALLY glad i found it!!!
Aw, thank you so much!
Yes, this game is quite old but I still think it's a super fun part of the series over all because you just get to see how long lasting the love between these two is and it's SO?!?! Oh I still love it and I'm so honored you'd play it and check out the other parts of the series too! THANK YOU!
I want to write you something about this VN, but I don't have words right now... This was REALLY REALLY WONDERFUL ! I mean, urgh, I got too much feelings reading their story... It was really great, and although I love Sal, I must admit that I love Battam way more than I should. He is amazing and I kinda love this kind of character, I didn't know that thought haha.
Anyways, you did a great job and, I don't have money now, but I'll support all you work when I'll be able. Moreover, I love to have physical things when it's possible and I saw that you printed your comic so... I can't wait to have money haha !
I have a question though. I don't really understand in which order I should read your stories about those two... I should first read your +18 comic? And the +13 you're drawing now is before the +18? And what about the next VN? Where does it fit in the timeline? Sorry I just noticed your work and there is a lot to process :D
Thanks for your amazing work !
Oh gosh, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS LOVELY COMMENT! This is such a nice thing to wake up to, thank you!
I'm so glad you liked the game-- even though this game is slightly older now it still has a very big place in my heart and I'm SO EXCITED to hear you'll be checking out the rest of the story.
Speaking of, when it comes to the comic(s) I would say there's not any wrong way to enjoy-- as you'll get the ideas of what's going on reading in whatever order you please.
Here's my recommended order regardless: The 18+ 3 chapter comic, then check out either the VN or the ongoing coming. The 18+ comic is FINISHED which is why I recommend checking it out before the ongoing stuff. The ongoing comic is the prologue (meaning it comes before the 18+ comic) and the VN is the epilogue (meaning it comes after it.) I hope that makes sense!
And here's the chronological order of all of that stuff, in case you were curious: Solanaceae: Prologue comic (it'll be a few chapters long), Solanaceae, an R18 comic (it's 3 chapters long), Solanaceae: The Visual Novel (it will be VERY LONG) and then Solanaceae: Another Time happens years and years later. (which you already played, yay!)
I wish I had MORE stuff finished for the series but for now you at least get to watch as the story unfolds in both directions, timeline wise! WHICH I THINK IS PRETTY EXCITING!
Also, super glad to hear you liked Battam <3 He's a fav of mine! HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!
Haha I'm glad it made you happy but all I said was just truth!! <3
Thanks for telling me all the timeline, now I understand all of it And... I need to read all of this ! And... You don't know how much I'm hyped right now to ear that we will have another VN ! Way longuer on top of this ! I can't wait to see it ! I can't wait to see them together and I hope everything will go well for them !! :p
And... Seeing the story unfold is not exciting, it's WAY MORE THAN EXCITING ! Gah I want to travel in time to see how it goes ! But It's also nice to just wait to see :o
Anyways, have a nice day too !! Mine is about to end (I'm french) but the story you told me today with your VN made it greater :D
Ps : I'm kinda glad to ear that you love Battam too... Because that mean I will be able to see new adventures of him and his love from time to time ! Too coooooool !
It's still very sweet to hear!
And yes, the VN will come out in smaller updates until it's one large VN, so it's ongoing kind of like a webcomic is. Right now just the first update is out publicly (and the second is up forPatreon supporters, for $1) and I'm hoping to have up to update 3, 4? Done within this year I hope! (First I gotta finish another big game of mine.)
It's very exciting for me to be working on SO MUCH SOLA and it's so nice when other people are excited too!!
I hope you have a good night and don't worry-- BATTAM WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG WHILE. He's my good, slightly evil looking boy and he will have many many grand adventures for you to enjoy <3
When I try to run it after I extracted the files it says "It's missing"
Not sure what to tell you-- I've never heard of this error! Are you using PC or MAC or Linux?
I'm using pc
Firstly, make sure you downloaded the PC version of the game. Secondly, you will need to right click and "extract here" or "extract (folder name)" and NOT the "extract files..." option. This option will get you nowhere, the game needs to be in it's own folder on the desktop, just chilling there.
From there, inside the folder should just be all the regular 'ol files that you can ignore, except for the .exe that should be titled "SolanaceaeAnotherTime" and have a little picture. That should then open the game.
Ren'py games don't need any install and just work out of the folder-- so if you're having any troubles beyond following this there's unfortunately not much I can do for you-- as I did not program the system I just made the game within the system. Google will be your next option if this stuff doesn't work.
Checking from your comment history, it also looks like this isn't the first time you've had trouble running a game-- so I would suggest checking your PC for problems and cleaning it out. ;)
the entire time i was just texting my friends, telling them how much i love this, and ah it's so beautiful i didn't want it to end!
Oh gosh-- well thank you! This game is quite old now; but it still holds a big place in my heart and I hope you'll check out the comics too. ^u^
I played this and Oh my gosh I cried! I love it!
That's always the best compliment-- thank you for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed! <3
THIS IS SO GOOD, 1000 HEART EMOJIS!!!! <3333 MY BF AND I JUST PLAYED IT TOGETHER AND WE LOVE IT SM!!
Ah! I'm so glad to hear that-- thank you SO SO MUCH and I'm so glad you both enjoyed!!! <3
this game brought me to tears how dare you...so beautiful ;;u;;
Oh gosh, thank you! That's always so awesome to hear because these two are extremely near and dear to my heart///
Thank you so so much for playing and for leaving a comment! <3

You just could see and even feel all their love and hardwork!! I looved it sooo muuch!! Thank you soo much for making this game and I'll look forward for future ones that'll happily play!! It was a pleasure playing this game and it really comforted me to on my hard times! Thank you sososososo much!! Good luck with ur future works and goals, dear!! TwT <333
aw gosh, thank you so so much!!! This really means a lot to me to hear, and I will def be making more Sola related games in the future so I hope they will be just as satisfying hehe <3
Loved this so much! Your art style is wonderful as always, the characters are adorbs together, and the sex scene was full of emotion and character development, which is really how I prefer my porn =P Plus I'm a sucker for this type of fated soulmate scenario.
Aw, thank you so so much! That means a lot to hear!
And yes, I also prefer porn with lots of emotion and character, hehe! Thanks a ton for playing and for leaving a comment <33333
I just finished playing this, and the whole time I was thinking "OMYGOD IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL." I couldn't stop myself from giggling from excitement. When it got to the second memory I instantly thought there was a switch of rolls between Sal and Battam. If I had money I would love to help you out on Patreon, because this is honestly one of the cutest and well thought out BL stories I have ever read.I hope you continue to create things like this in the future.
Oh gosh, well thank you so so much! I'm so glad to hear this!
Even though Patreon help is always appreciated-- just reading and checking out my stuff helps a lot too! If you haven't read the original comic for this-- you def should! (It's 18+ only btw!) https://darkchibishadow.itch.io/solanaceae-comic
And yes, of course! I'll def be making more stuff like this in the future, as well as tons of other stuff as well~ So I hope you'll look forward to it and read it~ <3
This was so sweet! I finally had a chance to play the full version and I'm so glad I did. I really liked seeing Sal and Battam rediscover who the other was and working through their problems to find a happy ending~~. And the art was GORGEOUS, GOSH. During the sexy scene I kept having to stop and just say "WOW THIS ANATOMY, THE COLORING, ITS SO GOOD??? SO GOOD." Art goals tbh. I also really liked the nice touch of the animations on the main menu and the custom icon. All around I had a great time playing this, and I thought the special message at the end was especially sweet. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful game!!
Oh my goodness, thank you so so much! I really appreciate this comment so much// It means a lot to me that you liked it and I'm super glad it was fun!! ;o; This project went thru so much to get released and I'm so glad to hear it was enjoyed!
THANK YOU FOR PLAYING! <3
holy shit i absolutely loved the demo and the full thing was just! so good! i swear i nearly cried!! it may have taken me longer to finish because i kept hiding my face in my hands at just how great it was!
Oh my gosh, thank you so much! This is such a sweet comment and I'm so glad you enjoyed it! <3 <3 <3
This game left me hanging so bad, like I almost cried when it got closer to the end. I really hated that this was a demo, now I have to be here for the full version. Ah, and I checked out your tumblr and read your comics! So pretty~ Your art style is beautifully unique!
Oh gosh! Well first of all, thank you! Everything you said is so lovely and I appreciate it so so much!
I'm so sorry that this is just the demo and I really would have loved to have the full game out by now-- but you wouldn't believe what happened to me in October to push this back! (In short: a lot!) So I've been swamped with work to help recover from some of that stuff so sadly this project has been put on the back-burner a bit.
I still work on it at least a little bit each week-- so I'm expecting to have a January or February release! I'll use your wonderful comment as a motivatior and I promise to try and make the wait worth it! <3333
This game looks soo cool, gon try it for sure:"3
Thank you! I'm hoping the full version will impress!
Nice work on this! The visuals are gorgeous - I love the backgrounds and use of colour! Battam was definitely my favourite. Maybe I just have a thing for creepy-but-cute witch characters, haha.
Just a couple of minor suggestions: I noticed a decent amount of typos, so you may want to have a beta reader look it over before you release the full version. I also found that Battam's brother's text noise was ear-hurting, so you may want to consider replacing it.
Thanks a ton! I'm glad you like it so far! Battam is one of my favorite characters of mine and someone I relate to a lot, so I'm glad you like him! <3
As for the suggestions: as this release says-- yes! Expect some spelling errors. But don't worry-- I've got at least 3 beta testers and they're usually pretty good about catching my mistakes. (My past releases were pretty clean!)
As for Satine's talk sound-- I'm pretty sure this build has an older file of it on accident but it's changed to not be so high-pitched in the new version. The same goes for the narration noise too, actually! But thanks for letting me know~
You're welcome! <3 Ah okay, I missed your note about the spelling errors. My bad! Good to know that you have some beta readers around for the full version. Good luck with continuing development on this - I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this!
This was really sweet! The color scheme and the character designs and the sound design all came together to make a really charming product! I'm looking forward to the full version! :D
(AND THE SEXY TIMES)
