Annoying Bugs

I swear, they just keep happening.

Anyway, there’s a bug in Crimson Rafflesia Demo 0.5 which freeze the game at the car scene. To remedy it, try this link instead ( Thanks and sorry for the trouble!


Crimson Rafflesia Preliminary Demo (Version 0.5) Available For Download!

It’s here – only demo 0.5, which cuts pretty early, but I thought it’s the only way I can release something before Christmas, heh, since some wondered if something could be released in December. I’ll release a Demo 1.0 later which cuts at a more appropriate and less… cliffhangery point. I promise. Once I’m done with all the art and programming for that. Meanwhile, hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!


Compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux. 


  • 7 CGs  (40+ including variations – yes, I know.)
  • Music and background images shamelessly begged and taken from random sources — yes, I know.
  • People monologuing at lot–
  • Which leads to 8,000+ words–
  • I’m sorry. 😛
  • I’ll release a longer, better version that doesn’t cut at such a ridiculous place next time. That’s why this is still demo 0.5.

Just for fun, in the actual Demo 1.0 I plan to open a (joke) bonus room where some of the characters can answer questions posted by players. :) You can also ask me about what the heck is going on in my stupid bored mind when I thought up of this nonsense, so send me any questions (preferably at instead of as a comment), and they might be included in the game!


As of 20th of December, 2012:

Replaced the download with a smaller-sized, more attractive download. Only changes are the car background, and the game size.

Astral Transparency: Cole’s Gate Demo 2.03 Updated!

This demo does not include any new content beyond Demo 2.00, but fixes many major bugs such as:

  • You can now access the inventory, equipment etc. menu and save accordingly without breaking the game.
  • Your game no longer crashes due to “coles-gate.mp3” not being found.
  • Your game no longer crashes due to missing files.
  • Demo Ending screen appears at the appropriate moment, instead of having the game loop non-stop.

Major Bugfix for Astral Transparency: Cole’s Gate Demo 2.01

Hi everyone,

I just retested the game and realized that there is a major bug – you can’t open your inventory in the latest demo. To fix it, please install this patch by following these instructions:


2) Extract Game.rgssad from the patch folder.
3) Replace the Game.rgssad file from your game folder with the new Game.rgssad

Again, I am sorry for the problems caused. If you run into any more bugs, please do contact me at so that I can fix it as soon as possible. Thank you so much, and enjoy your game!

EDIT-b: Replaced the link. The old one leads to an old patch which doesn’t work. 

EDIT-c: Replaced link with 2.02-c. 

EDIT-d: Hopefully the final patch. Replaced link with 2.02-d. This will hopefully get rid of all missing file errors.
