A free game created by Ebi-Hime, author of Asphyxia, The Way We ALL GO and Strawberry Vinegar, TSSofEB is a free yuri (girls' love) game created for a game jam.

As the saying goes, dead men tell no tales. They only leave tales behind.

Toma Andrews, aged 14, has always felt like an outsider. She enjoys spending time in graveyards, and feels more comfortable among the dead than the living.
That is, until Toma meets a strange girl in her local graveyard who might be a real ghost.
The girl asks Toma if she will stay for a while and listen to a story. A story about a girl called Emmeline Burns, who died a tragic death back in 1851.
Toma is compelled to listen, but at the same time, she feels uneasy. After all, what can she do? How could she ever hope to help somebody who has already died?

The Sad Story of Emmeline Burns reviews and comments

Translated by

Aaaah definitely recommend it, short and beautiful story, what I enjoyed most I must be honest, is the message you want to give, the beautiful illustrations and the beautiful music you have. The downside is that you can get tired reading so much and even some boring conversations!

Very nice Visual novel! The Story really takes you with it and tells you in wonderful detail. Drawings are great and Feelings are also shown by small Changes in images (reddened Cheeks, altered Corners of the Mouth ...). The music that fits the Story is also particularly outstanding. The Development Team has done a great Job, I can really recommend this Story to everyone. Even some Time later, I still have the Game in very good Memory-really nice!

I will recommend this game only because it is quite beautiful for a visual novel. Very beautiful, cute characters, they have very beautiful dresses and hairstyles, everything is so in a puppet. And This is another visual style, different from the one that has already brought me under the anime. In the background of beautifully moving fog, modelki change poses and clap eyes, talking to each other, look at you, watching you carefully read, translated, and not distracted. But! Already from the long-penultimate text of the entry realized that I was waiting for a strange story from a strange girl, who is seriously worried that her name was stolen, and is famous for the fact that everywhere finds corpses very tedious story, which I do not want to read through, Because everything will be linear and obviously lacks a game of zest, that leave with her player. 5 out of 10 puppet show, only for extremely cute girls and unusual visual style

I didn't like the Game. "The Sad Story of Emmili Burns" is a VERY short visual novella in which there is no election at all. Drawing, like, not bad, unusual, but all characters the same type. The story is VERY banal, and most importantly-frequent black screens (type memories GG) and inscriptions on the paper (like someone writes a story, or something like that...)! But there is a plus! Very Good soundtrack. The menu has a "music box" through which you can enjoy the music from the game. And in general, the menu was cool. Well, that's it. I, personally, did not like it, but the Plusk for the achievement of the game has earned... Well, now another minus-spoiler: What the hell girls decided to kiss just because of the fact that one was bad!? They just played the Dagontsy, then one fell in the pose "Can You (: 3) give me right Here", and the second began to kiss her. Or she was... In Short, they have their own method of treatment...
