The Dolls' Stories by nugeyo The Dolls' Stories by nugeyo
Well, I've already shared this on Tumblr and LSF months ago, but why not do so here as well?

Congratulations, you have become just become a state puppeteer -- that is, a soldier with the license to own a magical doll! Magical dolls are awesome things that are nurtured from young to BAMF, so you can look forward to getting either a hot dude or a cute chick. As time passes, however, you find that your doll isn't growing up as he or she should be...

Type: Kinetic Novel
Length: 35 - 45 minutes
Rating: E for everyone
Download: WINDOWS | MACINTOSH | LINUX
Reviews and comments: Lemmasoft Forums | Tumblr


You don't have to download Ren'py in order to play the game, but do make sure that you download the file that matches your operating system. If the game experiences any errors, that's probably due to a download error (have a fistshake, Mediafire), so you'd unfortunately have to download it again.

Once again, thank you so much to all players who have downloaded it and played the game, and left very kind feedback about it! To those that left useful crit, thank you as well, they mean a whole lot. If you've never heard of this game before and are checking it out, thanks so much for doing that and I look forward to hearing your comments! There can never be enough feedback, and rest assured that everything will go into developing much better games. :D

EDIT; I FORGOT TO SAY that fdoll's path is incomplete due to... well, a lot of reasons like bad team management, for which I apologise! So please don't freak out when you get the little sign at the end, haha.

oh goodness why is there no section for games under category

I kept on crying as i was playing. I was crying at the whole sacrificing himself thing and when the credits came, i bawled my eyes out! Good thing I didn't close it yet, the ending was so touching! It made me feel as if my whole life just turned upside down. Nice!

Keep up the good work! I'll support you all the way!

I was a little sad that the female doll had not yet been completed, as i really wanted to have her first! But i still adored the game anyway. :happybounce:

So far I've only played a little of the beginning (Downloading it on my new laptop as my old one crashed the game every five to ten minutes.... Stupid toaster...) but the concept is extremely interesting. The typing of your responses is something I'd definitely like to see more often. And it doesn't hurt at all that the art is just phenomenal. It makes me really wish there were more pieces out there like this. <3

Uwaaaaa!
This was a marvellous game! At first, I didn't understand the typing concept, but then I got used to it. It was a quite new, so it was interesting to try.
Uhuhuhuhuhu.... During the first part of the Male Doll's route (Not having played the Female Doll's route, yet), I couldn't help but feel quite attracted to the doll. He's sweet, devoted to his master, caring, and somewhat naive, you could say. I loved his route quite a lot!
That one part where I chose the option of reading the last book the first time when going inside the library! LOL! It was a totally cute scene that I can't hold in a "kyaaaa" and started shoving my face in a pillow. It was somewhat cliche, but still! 
Anyways, when it neared the ending (you could say the climax), he was so devoted on sacrificing himself just so he could be some use to his master. I can't help but cry! Though, I have no idea when I started crying: when Gil noticed the cracks on the neck or when he was willing to sacrifice himself just for his most important person. 
You know, it was a great idea to make a story that had a doll as your partner. I usually wondered what it would be like if dolls were alive, and this made me want to have them alive. It was just so... heartwarming! 
I loved this KN so much that I want there to be a sequel! 
For a first game, it was just outstanding!
I hope to play more of your future projects!

WHY DID THE MALE DOLL DIE???!!!!!!! Q.Q I LOVED HIM~~~~!!!!!! could you have had a good ending? Q.Q is there a good ending? also i loved how you could type but i would have preferred if you could type your own response without keywords but that would probably make it more difficult XD lol

Wat? Me? Crying?....I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ARE YOU *SNIFF* TALKING ABOUT!?! *SNIFF* I-I'm totally not crying, just a..A big crocodile fell to my eye, ya' know!.........:iconcryforeverplz: Okay so maybe I am crying!...

Now seriously xD I loved how you can type your responses, the art was just great, those comic-like parts were totally great and puppet partners, oh man, puppet partners.........I always loved to have a role of big warrior having cute little company, and raising him/her into your reall partner to war 9-9 it's not like i love the idea of being called master..epfrrrdsfhsudgh
[Spoiler Alert Guys!]
You totally got me with those credits after doll got crushed ;w; I was like "Noo you can't do that" and then.. Baw!... I love you for this~~! :iconfrufflesplz:

Better ending then I was hoping for xD I would be satisfied if he[played male's path so far xD] just came back, but... This was probbably way better~
Awesome game, even though little bit short. But I get It's not that easy as it seems xD since i'm trying to do my own visual novel and god...Scripts...Satan's work..
Mel is probbably my favourite character xD

Ah, this comment is way too long xD
In short, I wanted to say, great work on everything in this game~~! I hope there will be more games from you, 'cuz this one was simply incredible! just like the kebab....*cough cough*

Thank you so much for giving Dolls a try and for taking the time to leave such a sweet comment. I'm overwhelmed to hear that you loved the main concept! I'm terribly sorry about the length -- Dolls is my first game, so I didn't want to attempt anything too ambitious. I'm glad someone finally mentioned Mel! She and Gil were really fun to write.

Thank you once again for your support! I am in the midst of making another game. It's not a Dolls sequel, but I hope you'll show your support for it all the same. ♥

There's only one ending as this is a kinetic novel! I'm sorry that the ending wasn't fulfilling, I guess one CG wouldn't be satisfying at all, haha. Thank you so much for giving Dolls a spin and telling me your thoughts about it!

I just finished playing through this and I really enjoy that you type in your responses. I must say... I cried a lot after finishing it. Just when I thought something bad happened, something good happens right after. Also the parts that seem to be like comics is a unique concept. I haven't seen those in some games in a while. The story is really nice and is pokes at my emotions a lot. I must say, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me feel depressed. But mostly, it made me cry, especially the end. I'm not sure if the story for the male and female dolls are different since I only played through the male's, but I really enjoyed this game. ^v^

Aww man thank you so much for giving Dolls a try and leaving such a lovely comment about it! I'm glad to hear that you liked the story, simple as it was. The story for both the male and female dolls is the same (fdoll's path is incomplete though). There's only one ending as this is a kinetic novel. Thank you once again, I'm flattered to receive your comment!

I'm fascinated by it because it's almost like it knows what you're typing. I always love that kind of thing.

I recently studied that in class, that "AI" systems usually detect keywords and makes "assumptions" and I find it really cool :XD: How DO you make that? It's Ren'py, right?
Reply
:iconnugeyo:
nugeyo Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
Dolls was indeed made with Ren'py, but it doesn't have an AI/bot system. The 'chat' system for Dolls simply constituted of typing in sentences that contain the necessary keywords (synonyms are allowed). I did not do the codes -- I got someone else to do it for me -- so I'm afraid I can't give you any programming advice there. ):

I'm glad you liked the simple system at the very least -- there were people who found the typing tedious. ^^";; The system for future Dolls games will be much better and more dynamic, so hopefully that would provide more fun!
