Default Is there currently any way to play Midsummer Haze or Kira Snowdrop?

I might have gotten the names wrong, but as far as I know, both of the above games are Japanese doujin VNs released at one of the al|together festivals, probably before I got into the medium. Needless to say, I completely missed their releases.

For the first game, despite hearing that it isn't exactly worth playing to begin with, the patch seems to be unable to find the game from the creators' website: when I clicked on the option to let me download the game myself, it led to a Japanese site but gave a 404 message.

For the second game, I heard that it was released at first but later taken down because the translators didn't get the approval of the creators, or something similar. Is this what happened, and if so, is the game still unavailable in English?

Any help would be appreciated. Since there aren't too many translated VNs out there and doujin games are nice and short, I was able to play through most of them, but I hope I won't have to pass on these two indefinitely (especially the latter, I heard it was great!)

Yes, the translator released the English version without permission from the author (who couldn't be reached). He became uncomfortable about this over time, so the release was discontinued.

At any rate, he doesn't want the translated game to be distributed.

Sorry, forgot about this. Midsummer Haze (first link) is available here.

Thanks for the help, but the Midsummer Haze setup file still isn't working. It crashes when I tell it to download the game automatically, and when I ask to download it manually, the page it directs me to can't be found.

Don't worry; Haeleth's translation of Snowflake -Kira- was rather bad anyway.

Too bad; it's a beautiful game.

Thats kinda mean...

I think I might have the installer, but I don't want to disrespect the translator.
What it Haeleth that did it, I'll try to see if he'll let me if so.

Kira -snowdrop-'s translation would be pretty decent if, in it, the heroine did not employ a hideous approximation of a southern accent for whatever bizarre reason.

That accent is one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much.
Spoiler

But yeah, it's not bad if you can tolerate that.


P.S. on topic - I doubt many here will consent to giving out a copy of Kira, since it was revoked by its translator. As for Haze, I uninstalled mine in despair, but somebody might have the files.

Here I uploaded my copy of Midsummer's Haze.
(There's no problem uploading it, since it was free to begin with, right?)
