Re:Kinder

Re:Kinder is a freeware horror game by Parun (Horafuki Yokochou) made in RPG Maker VX.
It's a remake of Kinder, originally released in 2003 with RPG Maker 2003.

Third-grader Shunsuke goes to stay over at his grandmother's house.
Upon his return home, he finds not his familiar hometown, but a ruined town of death.
He meets his surviving friends and some other children their age, but a crueler reality awaits them...


Warning: This game contains a fair amount of gore and various other disturbing content.

Download Re:Kinder | (Mirror)
(Chrome may falsely flag the download as malicious, but it's safe to ignore.)

Installation of the RPG Maker VX Runtime Package (not VX Ace) is required to play.
Download VX Runtime Package (RTP)


Supported Platforms
The game's engine is made for Windows only, with no native support for other platforms.
To play on Mac, you can try a general-purpose tool like WineBottler.




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 you extracted the ZIP but save data is still being erased, try running the game as an administrator.
Without admin privileges, the game may not have permission to create save files.


"RGSS202E.dll could not be found" means you need the RPG Maker VX RTP.
This is distinct from the VX Ace RTP which other games may require. The download link is up above.
