Why :Short Game: by Mikeinel Why :Short Game: by Mikeinel
How to play
0. Must not find 'Echhi' and 'Emo' images offensive and/or korny
1. Must be 'Windows XP' or up
2. Download it from here:
Mediafire: [link]
Sendspace: [link]

3. Unzip it and open the folder "Why"
4. Run "Play.exe"
5. If "Unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because d3dx9_35.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." appears, run "dxwebsetup.exe" with internet connection, then run "Play.exe" again
6. If all else fails, don't play it. It's an ugly game anyway... Better save 5 minutes of your life for something else, heheh...

Gameplay
-Put your mouse over the black circles to turn them white.
-Click a circle to remove.
-There are 9 layers of circles in total.
-Tip: "Have at least 60% of white circles without losing one"

Softwares used
Adobe Photoshop
DarkBASIC Professional
Gamecrypt (plugin)

Comment
Another short game.
It didn't turn out to be as good as I expected though. It's more of a picture viewer than a game...
(It's audio-less by the way)

What do I do if it won't open? It isn't giving me an error message or anything.

I loved the single animation I saw, but is there a place where you post the animations themselves? I'd love to see them, and I doubt I'd have the time to get through the actual game to find them all.:(

OH MY GAWD - I tried and tried to get freakin' 60% white circles without losing one. I tried for HOURS. And then... I finally managed to get it... "Error: Could not find image file" :iconfrageplz: NOOOOOOO!

Anyone else find this happening to them?
When the last row of circles comes up, I can't turn any more white.
Is that supposed to happen?

Yep, I always get to over 60% and because of that last row, it ends up sticking me at like 56% everytime.

Ecchi is the "close to hentai, but not quite" images. They're the sexy, cleavage-and-v-line-filled images in anime.

A really beautiful game - it seems very simple at first, but then you realize just how difficult it is. Not to mention the pictures are all gorgeous.

For some reason, the game runs at half speed on my computer. I know my computer can handle it. Maybe it's something to do with Vista?
