Solanaceae: Another Time
A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux
After bumping into a strange witch, Sal is told he was once the witch's lover in a past life. Though doubtful, Sal takes a leap of faith and gets his fortune read by the witch. What he learns sends him on a month long journey of self discovery and magical encounters...
✨ About the Game ✨
Based off of my comic, Solanaceae, this game takes place in the modern era of the comic and centers around the chance meeting of Battam and Sal.
The game adds a lot of depth to the already existing comic chapters, but you don't need to have read the comic to understand and enjoy the game.
This game is best played with headphones.
This game is R-18 scenes, but with the option to opt out entirely in the beginning of the game instead for a PG-13 version.
By downloading this game, you are agreeing to being 18 years or older.
Play time is estimated about 30-40 minutes, and contains over 16k words.

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^

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
