I got to a part (around the end of 'round two' during the game's opening) with a black box.
It was replaced with a line of text after I clicked twice.
I clicked again and the text was replaced by a different black box, but that only lasted a second; because itch pretty much immediatly crashed when the second black box appeared. Not just the game, the itch desktop application.
A downloadable game for Windows
Content Warning: This visual novel contains strong language and explicit sexual content.
In the distant future, people inject artificial sensory data—neuroprojections—into their brains through neural implants to augment collective perception of reality. Common applications include cosmetics and vision correction.
Neuroprojections are also used in adult entertainment: the ability to alter one's appearance through visual overlays opens up many possibilities. What would you like to see?

Hi! Thank you for the bug report. I just tried it myself from the itch app but couldn't replicate your bug / crash. >< Maybe the files got corrupted when they were downloaded. Try reinstalling the itch app and the game, or running the game's exe directly outside of the itch app.
An excellent period piece.
It was an interesting experience. I'd love to learn more about this dystopian world
Thank you! 😊 If I come up with interesting ideas I'll write more stories that take place in this world.
When will the product be finished
