Lamento -Beyond the Void-

Lamento

The game takes place in a fictional world inhabited by Ribika (who look like humans but have cat ears and tails). Their world has fallen into dark times — a mysterious void has made some places (and even animals) impossible to touch, causing major food shortages. A strange and deadly disease that has killed off a large percentage of the female Ribika population is also spreading.

The hero, Konoe, exists in this miserable world, living alone in the starving village of Karou who have turned to cannibalism. The story begins with Konoe in Karou, where he suddenly begins to see horrible dreams and strange marks appear on his body. This is believed to be a curse so Konoe heads off to Ransen (the big city) in order to heal his body…

    Apparently there are a lot of yaoi fans out there. The more you know.

    • Guy says:

      I’m honestly grabbing this one because the plot interests me. I was hooked before I learned it was yaoi, so I guess it’s a good thing I don’t mind the stuff

      • Ollo says:

        “You don’t mind” as in you can still fap to it or just ignore it altogether?

        • veron says:

          My guess is “I can ignore it” (assuming he’s not into yaoi of course). You do know there are people who play VN’s for reasons beyond getting some fap material, right? Doubly true for any title that has gameplay beyond the usual “choose here to get your sex scene of choise” nukige.

          For example, I sincerely doubt anyone sank hours upon hours of their time into titles like Fate/Stay Night or Kamidori merely because they wanted to see a few sex scenes.

          • Cannonball says:

            Yeah, Fate/Stay Night had poor amount of h-scenes…

          • Derp Derpington says:

            “I can ignore it”

            there are some things that cannot be ignored, end of discussion.

            Personally I have nothing against fags, but watching them “in action” is seriously gross. There is only one excuse: if you are female then you can like it (similar to the way males can enjoy lesbians)

            • singingsings says:

              “I don’t have a problem” but you find it ‘seriously gross’ and you use the word ‘fag’? You have a BIG problem with it. Do us all a favor and get your close-minded ass out of here. “There are some things that cannot be ignored”? Are you kidding me? Not purposefully involving yourself in this thread is how you can ignore it.

              • Wally says:

                Oh fuck off, I agree with what he said about not being able to ignore it. I also find it gross. I can’t get into yaoi novels, and that does not make me closed-minded. My opinion is as valid as yours.

                Nobody gives a shit if you find the word ‘fag’ to be offensive. Somehow we find ourselves living in a society that has been infected with cry babies who throw around terms like CIS male and talk about how they’re a woman in a man’s body. Outside of Tumblr and some college campuses nobody takes this shit seriously. Welcome to the internet, faggot.

                • Kot says:

                  Meanwhile, Wally cries as soon as someone calls out bigotry. *sigh* The internet. What a farce.

                • roseDiamond says:

                  The problem is not that you don’t like spaguetti, the problem is when you say that since you don’t like spaguetti then spaguetti is shit.

          • Ajlez says:

            Seriously… I’ve no problem seeing any gender screwing eachother, and while I actually wish there were games where multiple sexualities were expressed (uh, are there?), I don’t even care for *most of the sex in the games I play*. Skimming is easy, if you wanna play the other parts of the game, just do it 🙂

        • IscreamCandy says:

          I can pretty much still fap to it though i guess it depends on the art style

  2. Loli says:

    *Screams* THANK YOU!!!
    I’ve waited 4+ years for this to come out..now finally this will be an incentive to finish work and reward myself with the game. thnx admin <3

  3. Replay says:

    and all the battle games that somehow got a good gameplay is yaoi. . . . sob sob sob why did they have to stall Rance. . .

  4. gamesgamesgames says:

    Thank God, I was preparing to hunt this game through the net since the usual DL sites didn’t have it, but you made it easier. Thank you!

  5. Xishalet says:

    Is the site messing up for anyone else? Every time I try to hit the download link, the site ‘refreshes’ and then it says there is a problem with the server.

    • ouellets says:

      Same here… I’ve been able to download part 1 and 2 but I can’t download part 3, 4…
      Admin, can you please help us? orz

      • Citrouillette says:

        you have to download part 1 and 2 first, wait the download finish and download part 3 and 4…and do the same thing with others part

  6. charamelwhip says:

    ohhh..thank you~~~
    i really waiting for next update for yaoi and otome games ^^

  7. TheMan says:

    I have downloaded all 10 files but it seems there is no application to run the game in any form after ive extracted the files? No .exe , no .ico or whatever. Anyonr else having this problem, furthermore how do i fix it?

    • nekochan says:

      if you’ve extracted all the pieces into a new folder, there’s a folder inside of that called ‘Lamento’. go in there and the .exe file should appear. I can see the exe file but when I open it, it’s only a black screen that doesn’t load. I’m on windows 10 so it might struggle on this platform.

      • prinJess says:

        Nope, Windows 10 is not the issue. You need to change the System Locale to Japanese.

        For Windows 10:

        -Right-click on Windows icon and go to “Control Panel”
        -Select “Clock, Language, and Region”
        -Select “Region”
        -Switch to the “Administrative” tab
        Under “Language for non-Unicode programs” press Change System Locale button. From the drop-down list, select Japanese (Japan)
        -Up pops a windows prompt for restart. Do so. Game will start normally once restarted.

        Ja ne~

        • Pari says:

          Is this the same for Windows 8.1? I’m having the black screen issue.

          • PrinJess says:

            For Windows 8.1 the steps to get to the control panel might be different but the steps are the same. Maybe the right-clicking of the window icon will work or not, but it should.

        • Davrwa says:

          My system is always on japanese locale for these games, but even so I can’t play this. A screen pops up and immediatly vanishes. Can someone help me? I have windows 7.

          • Davrwa says:

            Ok. I managed to make it work (up until now at least). What I did was that I have two discs separations and I moved the game that was on disc D to disc C. It took some seconds to load, but now it’s running normaly. If anyone is facing the same problems, that might be the solution.

        • Kestrel says:

          I’ve followed the above steps which have gotten me out of a black screen but now I’m stuck with a white screen TTnTT

          Windows 8.1 in case you’re curious.

          • Sakurin says:

            i also have the same problem, no more black screen but a white one instead and now there is music in the background; i moved the file to disc c but nothing changed (><)

  8. random says:

    @ admin

  9. random says:

  10. Kate says:

    He looks fucking sexy! Hell yeah! Thanks a bunch admin!

  11. Cyanide_tea says:

    Yay! Finally some yaoi! I always wanted to play this game but I couldn’t find it anywhere on internet. Thanks admin, you are truly the best ^^

    oh, and sorry for my english.

  12. Matthew says:

    Does this game have actual gameplay?

    I kinda want more fighting vns. Like Rance or Kamidori or Duel Savior.

  13. Rez23 says:

    Two questions.

    1-Does this game have nudity/sex scenes?
    2-How the heck do you save? I just lost two hours of progress.

  14. heisenbug says:

    BTW, admin I was wandering if you do plan to publish Ore no imouto game on your site from PPS? Or are you waiting for the second disk to be translated?

    • admin says:

      Waiting for complete translation. I don’t post “partial” games here.

      • heisenbug says:

        Maybe it is my mistake, but I thought the CD1 is a wholesome game, from the original concept. CD2 is just an additional part that was added later on.

        Anyway, it does seem that the patch for CD2 translation should be published in a couple of months. Looking forward to play the game then.

  15. MakiToku says:

    Admin… I FLIPPIN’ LOVE YOU.
    I just want you to know that.

  16. Berugii says:

    Hey, this is one of the translators. We specifically asked that our work not be reuploaded or made into a pre-patched version of the game.

    A lot of people who deserve credit for their work are not getting proper credit in this post.

    We would really appreciate it if you abided by the patch teams wishes and linked straight to our “official” aarinfantasy thread instead.

  17. singingsings says:

    Was expecting homophobes in the comments. Wasn’t disappointed. It’s 2015 people, get over it.

    • heisenbug says:

      I saw your message and decided to check the rest of the comments to look for those homophobic ones out of curiosity. Unfortunately, I failed to pinpoint any of the sort.

      It is truly a pity that we entered the age of social justice warriors, who bitch about empty political correctness and get offended at the mildest difference of opinion. If you were just like random trolls bitching on the net, you could be ignored. Unfortunately, your bitching has a negative impact on the lives of others in the real world. And that includes game developers, especially VN game developers that have to censor their work (getting rid of the violence, artificially promoting gender equality, changing the game because of a sex scene with a minor and so on) because of retards like yourself.

      Don t get me wrong. I support gay rights and things like that. However, people like you do more harm for homosexuals than homophobes. But what really makes me angry is that idiots like yourself have a direct impact on my life.

      So, I sincerely wish you go fuck yourself. You can either bitch about your hurt feelings on a private forum or just cry yourself to sleep.

  18. MakiToku says:

    How do you full-screen the game though?
    I see no option for it. My screen resolution is 1280 x 1024 and so the game window is really tiny. QwQ

  19. Help says:

    How can I go fullscreen? Please help, my screen resolution is very small and I can’t see the bottom of the screen…

  20. phantom_maou says:

    There is no English patch link?

    I’ve started playing Dramatical Murder and liking it so far for a BL VN (3/5 routes done). Hopefully this will be the same

  22. Hmmm says:

    “Personally I have nothing against fags, but watching them “in action” is seriously gross. There is only one excuse: if you are female then you can like it (similar to the way males can enjoy lesbians)”

    That’s not a tad homophobic to you ?

    Now, I’m no social justice warrior, if by that you mean people blogging about what they think is moraly wrong in the gaming industry. I’ve got my own views on the movement, but that’s by the by.

    I don’t know that much about VN development, I admit, so feel free to correct me but most of them are made in Japan, where female and male genitals have to be censored by law.
    I don’t know about violence, but this very game, targeted at a female audience, has in fact, some scenes of a violent nature, even mind break and rape. Another game, which I think is by the same company and for the same audience(“togainu no chi”), ups that even more.
    I’m also fairly sure social justice isn’t even an issue Japan concerns itself that much with, just going by the entertainment that’s popular there.

    In short: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    “Negative impact on the lifes of others”, dude, it’s yaoi and hentai(and video games). Your life is not going to get worse because they took out the loli rape scene in your favourite hentai game.

    I understand if you’re talking about a scene in a game that’s seriously trying to tell a story, but even that is just entertainment.
    I doubt devs, at least of bigger companies, care either, they’re making a product and if “political correctness” sells, it sells. They’re not crying about having to write a strong female character, if it keeps selling copies. Maybe only because they can’t fucking do it.

    Kind of seems to me like everyone is bitching, not just Sj warriors…. Fuck me, even I do it.

    It’s also kinda self centered to say, only you deserve entertainment you enjoy and fuck everyone else.

  23. heisenbug says:

    //That’s not a tad homophobic to you ?//

    No, that is a personal opinion that I share too. Not liking the sight of male on male action does not mean you are homophobic. If you try to censor the game because of that – only then you are homophobic.

    //I don’t know that much about VN development, I admit, so feel free to correct me but most of them are made in Japan, where female and male genitals have to be censored by law.//

    Yes, that is a hypocrisy brought by America after the second world war. And one of the reasons why not many visual novels are brought to the West, is that social justice warriors campaign against them for different reasons. Not to mention, the games that do manage to make their way to the market are additionally censored by cutting \questionable\ scenes which is much worse than mosaics on genitals.

    //I don’t know about violence, but this very game, targeted at a female audience, has in fact, some scenes of a violent nature, even mind break and rape//

    Ehhh.. You do realize that this is a fan translation not bound by hysterical shouts of social crusaders? The Official industry is a different matter though. Especially in the West.

    //I’m also fairly sure social justice isn’t even an issue Japan concerns itself that much with, just going by the entertainment that’s popular there//

    Thankfully, the social hysteria hasn t reached Japan yet

    //Your life is not going to get worse because they took out the loli rape scene in your favourite hentai game//

    I suspect you are new to visual novels. You don t know the story of \If my heart had wings\, where they decided to get rid of any mentioning of sex, which completely butchered one route. So yes, that makes my life worse, since I am unable to enjoy the original plot of the game. Yes, there are bigger problems in the world than me not getting the game I want. However, that does not mean there is no problem and I cannot voice my discontent about it.

    //I doubt devs, at least of bigger companies, care either//

    Of course they do not care. And it is not about being able to make additional money. It is about avoiding a scandal. Political correctness doesn t sell. It just avoids additional PR expenses

    //It’s also kinda self centered to say, only you deserve entertainment you enjoy and fuck everyone else//

    The problem with social justice warriors is that they are not gamers. They are not bitching about getting the games they want. They are bitching about others not getting the game social warriors want them to get

    • Cyanide_tea says:

      Hey guys, I have a great idea! How about you both shut the f**k up and just enjoy the game? Nobody cares about your “ethics in video games” and social justice warriors and other shit.
      This comment section is about your opinion about the game and translation, for fuck’s sake. Go to forum if you want to discuss your bullshit first world problems.
      It’s just visual novels, don’t take it fu***ng seriously and so personal, geez. (-____-)”

      sorry for my english

  24. Hmmm says:

    I don’t know, maybe everyone has a different opinion on what is homophobic, but calling the sex between men gross is, to me.
    You can not like it and saying so doesn’t make you homophobic, but calling it gross isn’t simply stating an opinion.
    In the end, I’m not a gay man, so what I think is homophobic doesn’t really matter, so ignore me, really.

    \And one of the reasons why not many visual novels are brought to the West, is that social justice warriors campaign against them for different reasons.\

    I’ve never heard of such a thing, but I take your word for it, since I’m not that involved with VN, you are right. I usually only play the ones that sound interesting to me.
    Which do have H-content from time to time and which I’ve never seen a complain about.

    \Ehhh.. You do realize that this is a fan translation not bound by hysterical shouts of social crusaders? The Official industry is a different matter though. Especially in the West.\

    Take \Enzai – falsely accused\ then.

    \…However, that does not mean there is no problem and I cannot voice my discontent about it.\

    I’ve googled it and it’s no wonder I’ve never heard of it, since it’s not the sort of VN that would appeal to me anyway.
    The sources I read stated that they changed it to make it \appeal more to the west\, which in my opinion, can be anything from them simply assuming H-scenes with girls that look fairly young won’t sell here because they think we’re all prudes to them indeed worrying about social justice warriors.
    Since I’ve not seen an actual campaign by SJ warriors against the game, but can’t deny it since you know more about the scandal than I , I can neither agree nor disagree, but will simply have my doubts.

    \Political correctness doesn t sell. It just avoids additional PR expenses\

    What I take from games like GTAV and Hatred, is that even an outcry about political correctness is good advertisment, depending on who you want to sell your game to.
    I’ve never heard of anyone skipping on a game because \ the media ( be it social or otherwise) said it was too violent or had too many sex scenes\.
    If they’re worried about there being and outcry about there being sex scenes in the game, then they’re trying to sell it to the wrong audience.

    H-games are too niche, in my opnion, to get much of an outcry or campaining against. But maybe I’ve simply not heard about it.
    Seems to me, that social justice warriors would be more concerned with complaining about mainstream stuff, watched by a wider audience, like game of thrones.

    I do agree though, that we have a problem with people being overly sensitive about the thiniest little things nowadys.

    //You can not like it and saying so doesn’t make you homophobic, but calling it gross isn’t simply stating an opinion//

    Consider me homophobic then. For me homosexuality is as gross as coprophagia. Though, it is kinda of a paradoxe that someone homophobic like me would support gay rights

    //Take Enzai – falsely accused then//

    It was released in the US in 2006. Social justice was not that concerned with games at the time

    //The sources I read stated that they changed it to make it appeal more to the west,//

    It was published on erogedownload. You should check the comments here. The publisher thought they would make more money by releasing an all-age butchered version. They avoided a scandal with the SW and could sell their game to an all-aged dempgraphic. However, it ended up as a failure

    • Hmmm says:

      I try to make this short.

      Sorry for taking so long to reply, I’ve been insanely busy.

      So, in case you’re still reading this :

      ” Consider me homophobic then. For me homosexuality is as gross as coprophagia. Though, it is kinda of a paradoxe that someone homophobic like me would support gay rights ”

      It really isn’t paradoxe. To me it’s more a ” I’m not racist, but … ” sort of thing.
      Of course you’d say you support gay rights, no one wants to be seen as homophobic/racist. You still act like you are, whether you’re doing it on pupose or not doesn’t matter. You don’t practice what you preach.
      But again, what I think doesn’t matter.

      “It was released in the US in 2006. Social justice was not that concerned with games at the time”

      Fair enough.

      “The publisher thought they would make more money by releasing an all-age butchered version.”

      That right there is what I’ve been trying to say.
      I don’t think they wanted to avoid a scandal or had any pressure from social justice warriors. They simply wanted to reach a broader audience to make more money and it failed.

      The sources you put weren’t about the game, but h-games in general.

      Also those were from human rights and feminist organisations, I thought we were talking about a protest from the general internet social justice warrior.

      Human rights and feminist organisations complain and talk, that’s what they do. They need to complain, otherwise we would forget that they’re there and they wouldn’t get as much charity money on christmas.
      Doesn’t mean they accomplish or influence anything.
      Not that they’re useless, I’m glad we have them, but they all have things about them that you can stand behind and things you can’t.

      • Shushu says:

        You look like you want to give your ass to many strong and sexy guys when you comment things like this.

        All people that badmouth gays are actually gays that can’t admit this to themselves. No exception.
        Gays in the closet are the kind of people that most harm in the world. Go have an orgy with men already and be happy.
        You probably wouldn’t be bothering anyone else if you were sexually happy.

        You look gayer at each comment you make trying to pretend you find it gross.

        We are just laughing at you.

    Could someone make a quick guide to install the game? I’m not quite sure of what to do.

    Thank you :3

  33. Curious says:

    Is there a reason why when I go to the download link and press “Free” nothing happens? I tried with different games too but those download sites just don’t respond to me at all.

    So I just bought a new laptop, it has Windows 10.

    I downloaded all the links and used WinRAR to extract them into my :C, then I put it in Program Files x86 and made another folder in there called Nitro + Chiral because that’s how it looked in my old laptop. I set the locale language thing to Japanese and turned my laptop off and on too.

    But when I clicked the application, the screen for the game was still black, I even kept it open to see if it was just loading. Can you help me fix this?

    Please Please please!

  37. Zexxo says:

    Ugh seriously. Who invited the annoying breed of men here who only like to bitch about everything? Do us all a favor and fuck off bitches.

    Is there any way to make this full screen?

  39. Anonyea says:

    just press F, works in most of Nitro+CHiRAL games!

  40. Anybody says:

    somebody help me ! why when I click the .exe that appears black screen , I follow all the comments about how to cope but nonetheless that the screen appears black . Help me !!

    NEED HELP!

    game downloaded and extracted perfectly and the application thing even pops up when opened but all that appears is a black screen that also wouldn’t close unless i sign out

    HELP ME OUT PLEASE I REALLY WANNA PLAY THIS GAME :((

  43. Person says:

    I downloaded this game somewhere else, but it didn’t run in my computer. I found out later in aarin forums that Windows 8 doesn’t run it unless it’s set to 32bit, and mine is in 64bit. Does using Windows 10 really fix this issue? I’m on the verge of throwing myself off a cliff lol

  44. Kuppuru says:

    i+have+a+black+screen+(+windows+7+)+why+?

  45. Lindo says:

    If anyone who has already played the game could give me some info. I would appreciate it. Are the d**** big enough? Are the veins visible? The glans should also be rather fat, I don’t like pointy d****, and most importantly the glans shoud have a different colour tone than the shaft. If the above prerequisites are satisfied, I’ll gladly download the game.

  46. mskahve says:

    Excuse me, can someone help me?
    I have downloaded the game successfully but when I try to launch the game, a window opens up, clearly it’s the game’s window but; it’s all black. I mean game is not running. It’s only a black window and.. nothing happens after that.
    I am lost, I tried changing my pc lang to Japanese as well, again, didn’t work… 🙁

  47. Kim says:

    Kya! I’ve been waiting for this translation for years… Dreams really do come true! Ha ha.

    Of course I immediately started to play it and 7 hours later (1:00 am at night) find it difficult to stop. God, Nitro+Chiral is freaking amazing. Every time I play one of their games I think it’s the best one yet. Lamento raises the bar even higher than Dramatical Murder (in my opinion). Love the story, love the characters, lovely and creative animation, two routes where I simply can’t decided which one to do first… *Squee!*

    Admin, thank you for this lovely gift! Nitro+Chiral, if this continues to be just as awesome to the end for both those routes I think I’m actually going to buy my own copy. What an amazing un-birthday present! 😀

    Yaoi for the win!

    Hey! My girlfriend and I wanted to play this game and I did everything as people said, but I’m stuck on a white screen. The only things I can do is full screen it (F) and try to exit out but it has no option to. It only says “Close Lamento?” and doesn’t present any actions. I did change my system local and restarted my computer but it isn’t working. Does anyone know how to fix it?
