Rewrite is set in the fictional city Kazamatsuri where treeplanting and afforestation have caused the city to become overgrown with trees and flowers in much the same way that other cities are filled by buildings. However, while most of the city appears to be rural, there are many traditional city elements as well. While set in a modern setting, the city also gives off a strange sense of nostalgia. The basis of the story is set in a high school setting. The first half of Rewrite primarily consists of the characters interacting in many everyday, enjoyable scenes. The latter half, however, is more serious, emotional, and carries a sense of mystery to the plot.

As indicated by the title, rewriting is the theme of the game’s scenario. The tagline for the game is, “Could it possibly be rewritten, that fate of her’s?”.

    My game doesn’t have any voices…is there some patch i didn’t download or is it just some random error that might disappear after uninstalling?

    • Biertje says:

      Check your sound settings! I had the same problem, I was playing the game with my headphones on (stereo), but my Windows sound settings were on 5.1 surround. I suspect that’s why you are not hearing voices. Go to the task bar, right click on the speaker icon (usually at the bottom right), click on “playback devices”, right click on the default device and select “configure speakers”. Then set it to the correct one, probably stereo. Hope that helps.

  13. Brian Zheng says:

    So when I open the game its crashes because of the siglus engine. So I went to download a new one from the link that the r3 patch said. When I try to download the new Siglus Engine I get like a error note. Someone help me. Or is there a newer siglus engine i can download or is there a newer patch i can download?

  14. Diley says:

    I have a question you will post the rewrite harvest festa ?

  15. Jetto says:

    So, anyone know why I can’t hear any voices from extra characters? I mean, I can hear the principal characters’ coices, but that’s it. No ‘Dude A’ voice. Is it perhaps because of the Siglus thing? I had tou use another one to run the game.

  16. McAnon says:

    my 1st try doesn’t have any error and i am newbie here too
    here’s what i did and what application i used
    MagicDisk cd rom manager (or any apps that can mount)
    Winrar *offcourse

    1. You need to extract the files (actually the part1.rar only)
    *The files you will see there was cdpart1.iso , part2.iso <(totally forgot the name of the iso file), NoDvd, and etc
    2. Use the MagicDisk to mount part1.iso and part2.iso
    *ofcourse part1 is the 1st to mount then just install it,
    when your already finished the half part of the loading you'd need to mount the part2.iso
    3. Copy the signus file from NoDvd and english patch to your rewrite file location normally "C:\Program Files\Key\Rewrite"
    4. Install your downloaded english patch then play the game

    That's all i did… Sorry for bad english and tutorial but i hope that this will be helpful… :)

  17. Blazing Magpie says:

    Finished it.
    This VN is a gift from the gods.

  18. zack says:

    I don’t know how to put into words about how excellent this VN. This story is my favorite , even when compared to other anime

  19. KiritoCy says:

    I have done everything like it supposed to be mounted the iso and done the setup then i chance the engine with the one in the NO DvD file and then applied the patch but the game does not start with run as japaneese locale or admin ….. What did i do wrong pls help……..

  20. Flixrin says:

    Ok. I solve this already. Create folder Key inside the local disk C and create folder Rewrite inside folder Key. Mount image 1 and 2, copy the folder GameData from both image and paste it to folder Rewrite. Then copy the Siglus.exe from NoDVD folder and paste it there. Run the english patch and you can run the game already.

  21. Halp says:

    “Mount image 1 and 2″
    what the hell? I didn’t get anything from here, could you please explain better? Mouting? Images? W-what.. Siglus? What

  22. Lirg says:

    First, download the game Rewrite.
    Second, get the software Damon Tool lite or simlilar software that could create a digital dvd drive.
    Third, install the Damon Tool lite
    Forth, Use the newly acquired software and use it to open the the game Rewrite disk 1 then 2 (if you haven’t extractede the rar file already).
    The figure out the rest.

  23. Flixrin says:

    Sorry, I never write in details. It is as Lirg said, you need a software called Daemon Tools. Download it somewhere in Google, and after you download it, you will find a lightning icon on the lower right corner of you task bar. Left click on that, and left click on “device 0″. Select the game image file and after you open it, you will find your game ‘disk’ folder in “My Computer” folder. Right click, select explore and you can start finding the “GameData” folder. The rest is just what I said. You can find NoDVD folder in the game folder, the one you downloaded from this site. The English patch can be found in this site as well.

    If you are still lost, read the rest of the comment posted here. Maybe I am bad at explaining.
