About

This short, kinetic visual novel inspired by traditional folk music was originally created within the course of 2 weeks for the NaNoRenO 2016 visual novel development festival. It is a character-driven story focusing on the theme of the beauty and tragedy of the passage of time.

--

In the winter of 1967, a young man enters out of the snowy night into a bar in the sleepy town of Cedar on the northern frontier of Maine. He takes off his gloves and rubs his hands together. He slips out a golden pocket watch from inside his coat, checks the time, and gently places it back. Closing his tired eyes, he stops to think.

He is a wanderer cursed with eternal youth, sent out by fate forever to roam the world, never to find a home.

The bartender approaches him when he takes a seat and he pays for a drink so he can stay. The liquid in the glass shines slick like oil under the dim lights of the bar. Warmth fills the wanderer as he downs it in one gulp. After that he sits awhile to rest but knows he can't stay. Just as he gets up to leave, he notices something happening in the corner of the room.

A girl in a green dress is about to sing.

The Visual story of fare thee well is very pretty... small quiet music, beautiful story, really everything works well (nothing to say). However no collector card, no successes obtained (15-30 min reading) but this VN being free I recommend it... to read only for fun. Friendly Pastor

All the French. It is a beautiful story "simple" at the level of the thematic, but well carried out, and narrated, we manage to attach to the characters. The music repeats a little, and the pictures too. In a sense it corresponds well to the topic of history. Taking into account the free play. It's a good 7/10. What to please the fans of the genre for my part I recommende.

Fare Thee Well is a good novella. Fare Thee Well is a great kinetic visual novel about wandering. Fare Thee Well is a magnificent full of feelings story, despite the fact that the author, unfortunately, or did not try, or could not make enough effort to analytical rethinking the conflict of the protagonist. The Creator was forced to give the "wanderer" not only eternally young body, but also the same eternally young consciousness (though the novella and tries to assert the opposite). This is not A terrible thing and the work does not spoil: Romance is not obliged to become a philosophy.

Fare Thee Well-The very name of this kinetic novel sets her poetic mood, because Fare Thee Well is and "farewell" in English, and the name of the ancient English ballad, as well known as the Dinc's Song. One of its options-Morgan-Dinc's Song (Audio) Language and plot. The Language of the novel is English, it is not very complicated, but there are many poetic footnotes in the form of lyrics of old folk songs. The story tells us the story of a stranger whose spontaneous stop in a small Canadian town, and meeting there with a novice singer, will leave memory in his long life forever. In fact, there was a small parable in the form of a variation of the old myth of the Eternal wanderer, flavored with a lot of old ballads, and thoughts of what is our home, and why we live on the white light. Very beautiful and poetic thing. Graphics and sounds. The Drawing is somewhat gruelling that the characters that are the asses. The Artas are not the strongest in the novel. Music well creates a sad but light atmosphere. As a result. A Beautiful story about distant roads, finding your way, and understanding yourself. All this under the lyrics of old, but very good songs. Fans of short stories, folk music, and reading with meaning-read! 9 Songs from 10 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
