Troubleshooting

Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file. If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.

If dialogue doesn't show up or uses the wrong font (which may cause cutoff text), download and install MS Gothic.
