Third in the lineup for al|together 2008 is "The Letter" (original title "手紙") from the circle P.o.l.c., translated by insani's own Seung Park. A little bit of nostalgia, a little bit of magic, and you end up with a piece that won a "recommended" rating (http://www.nagisanet.com/game/winfree/69.htm) from NaGIsa (http://www.nagisanet.com), a respected independent reviewer of freeware visual novels.

Downloads are available for both Windows and Mac, so enjoy! Note that the accompanying essays on the site can contain spoilers, so you may want to play it through before reading them.

Didn't leave much of an impression on me, but it was pretty decent. Especially for something using only stock photos and music.

You kind of sound like Seung after reading this once: http://altogether.insani.org/2008/3-translator.html

Could be better after reading it a second time or after a couple of months/years?

I hadn't really dug around NaGIsa's site that much. Doesn't seem to like Moonlight Blue and Bye as much as I did, although sorta recommending one.

I didn't get choked up, but I did sniffle at the part when he carries his mom. The description is so vivid and likely true to many of our own feelings towards our aging parents.

Fantastic translation. Great work.
