This is meant to be a guide for the game for English-reading or English-speaking players who have difficulty understanding or playing games in Japanese.

Note: As of version 0.40, the game is playable in English. Simply go to the Key Config menu and switch the language to "English" on the bottom.

I'm pretty much done other than minor changes until the next version comes out. This guide is for version 0.431.
