I played it a long time ago and it was the first real visual novel that I've played and I could not be happier. Since then I'm hooked and whenever someone ask me for recommendation, I tell them about this game.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
RE: Alistair++ is a free visual novel/otome sim game by sakevisual.
Merui loves video games, especially her favorite MMORPG, Rivenwell Online. Merui also has a very short temper, so when some JERK named Alistair steals a rare item from her, she's determined to exact revenge on him. Unfortunately, she has no idea who he is in real life. But hey, that's never stopped anyone, right? Take control of Merui and make new friends, balance schoolwork and fun, go shopping, search for the culprit, and maybe even discover a new romance.
Enjoy playing RE: Alistair++? Wish it was longer with voices, a bigger wardrobe, and way more dating options? Check out the spiritual sequel, Backstage Pass! Same team, even more stuff to play!

Hi! I agree with the commenter below me; it was totally worth playing the game over and over for three hours to unlock all five endings. I will admit, I've had this game downlaoded for sometime but for some reason I never played it. BOOOOY, was I missing out! I think the idea is cute, the whole mixing a video game within their lives and mixing mystery with romance! In the beginning I found it hard because I thought I wouldn't be able to complete my project with Shiro (sorry babe) and also find enough information for Alistar, but I was worried for nothing! It was simple!
Shiro's Route- Shiro was the first route I completed, and it was actually all by accident! I usually don't go for the shy guys in otome games, I'm not sure why but they just never interest me. But Shiro was different. He was sweet, but also had a side to him that made me emo enough to keep working on my project. At first I was trying my hardest for Derek, but I guess with me buying the Greek book and working on my project majority of the time I ended up matching Shiro's stats! My first play through I wanted to make sure Rui was super smart, so I put a ton of effort into her intelligence meter. Then I just balanced social and networking out. Along with that, I was super worried that I would fail my project with Shiro, so I bought the Greek book and also worked on my project often. Even though my heart was set on Derek, I ended up ending with Shiro!
Speaking of that mess, I was SO SHOOK when I found out who Alistar was! I had the biggest feeling it was Derek,,,,,,because I realized Travis had to be Oda and I felt that Shiro was too nice to be that sassy online; but I still chose Shiro when I was asked who I believed it was. I was so shaken when he yelled that it wasn't him and tried to stick up for Rui in front of Derek. Good times. Shiro was a sweet character and was probably my favorite. Love you forever Fiona!!!
Derek's Route- okay, this route pissed me off. i spent an hour trying to complete it and it's all because i never gave a thought towards my stats! i bought the dress on my own, and also ate at the gym and mall all the time but i never ended up with derek. i was honestly at witts end and started to read the comments. i didnt even realize that there was a walkthrough until i read one of the comments and i am so so so thankful that i found the walkthrough! i probably would still be stuck in that never ending loop i was in! derek's route when played right was interesting. the whole time in my mind i kept yelling "ok??? well im ur gf so u need to start acting right." i was super frustrated with all the bad endings when he, as alistar, wouldnt give back the blessed stone. but it all paid off when i got his good + bonus ending! it was so cute. i enjoyed his cg's the most, and i also found him the most attractive. (unless we're counting travis w/o his glasses bc tbh that took my heart) most of all, the shadiest! but its okay. hes still cute.
Travis' Route- this may have been the easiest route i got. at this point, i was tired (its almost 1am and i played this whole game in three hours) and was living off of the walkthrough. thank goodness i did because i would not have known what to buy for travis to like me! i found his story line to be the saddest, but it made me respect his character the most. i loved the banter he and rui shared right from the very beginning, and B E L I E V E me i was SO shaken when he pinned rui to the wall and went psycho when he encouraged her to report alistar. his love for video games and his protectiveness over rui made me swoooon, especially when he called her princess during the bonus ending ahhhh. i love it. another big thing that shocked me was when he revealed he was a mod! i knew deep down that he was oda, but i NEVER expected him to be a mod! it really cleared everything up.
thank you for creating this game! it was very light hearted but also had me emotional over the sadder parts, (travis' mother, shiro's parents), and swooning over the romantic parts (yes derek, give me another back hug.). overall i believe this is a solid game and i encourage everyone to give it a try. the story line is hilarious, and the music is spot on! good luck on your future projects, ill be waiting for them! xoxo
It was totally worth the multiple playthroughs to unlock all of the romantic endings. However, I do have one major issue to press. There is a difference between "your" and "you're". From the emails I unlocked, you seemed to have neglected to use "you're" in a couple of them where you should have. I only mention this because one of them belonged to Shiro, who is characterized by his preference towards intelligence. To have that kind of simple spelling error in his message just seemed off.
I will give you bonus points for the replay value though. No matter how many times I play the game through, it feels like there are still scenes I haven't read, especially during lunch time. And as there is only so much money you can make/spend, it's a challenge to budget correctly to optimize the amount of item scenes you'll receive in return.
Since I happen to be writing this rather late, please for me for not including more detail. Any spelling mistakes I've made can also be blamed on this reason. I just wanted to inform you that your team has done a very good job putting this together and that you should be proud of your creation. Just have to say though that you kind of made it obvious on who "Alistair" really was. Though Oda's identity was a bit of a surprise. Definitely think the character pairings were accurate once they were properly matched and considered, so excellent job with that.
Anyways, I'll end my little monologue here, so thank you for your time. I hope you continue to make great games as fun as this one.
Super cute ending, took me two tries but I knew it was HIM the entire time!
Hi, is there any difference (other than size) between this 160mb's realistair-1.1-win.zip and Lemma's 51mb's realistair_installer.exe OR 53mb's realistair-win32.zip? Tq!
This has updated sprites, some extra CGs, and it's built on the latest version of the engine so there's a lot more compatibility with modern computers. The story and gameplay are the same.
I enjoyed the game, it was awesome in its own individual way.
I really loved how our characters switched between the Game and the Real World, and since all of them have their own little secrets to discover, the game is exciting till the end.
I liked the stats system, even though i had to play the whole game over five times because i missed one CG and couldnt find the right way to impress the boy for the last CG ;p
All in all, a pretty unique game with beautiful art (and CG's) a nice stats system and many other cool features. :)
Does this game doesn't work with windows 10?
Really fun~ ^^
i mean system cannot find file specified
help it wont let me download the game it keeps saying page not specified
Cute mystery and light romance; it was interesting to see the foundations of mechanics from your later game, Backstage Pass, in this adventure (e.g. the store, the impact of stats on characters and events, etc.). Shiro's route was Liz's favorite, but that may be because she preferred his personality. On our first playthrough, we struggled to get his and Derek's events; Liz later used a walkthrough to figure out on what days to visit them. Hopefully we can feature your other game on Dizzi soon.
cute art style
Amazing game~ °^°! It was super interessting and fun and i really like the art style ^^
hi!so i have a problem.When i put the game in full screen it stays the same size and moves to the top corner of the computer screen.Can i do anything to make it full screen?
This was the game that got me into all the other Sakevisual games. Absolutely amazing. Can't believe it's free!
Omg, I loved this game!! Great work!!
Hey.. help me. I can't download the file. Everytime I try to download it the pop-up shows up saying the source file could not be read. What should i do ?
I love this game i rate it 4/5 but i hate the fact is that through out the days i just have to keep doing the same thing over and over again which got boring
Hey, so I have a mac and I've downloaded the game[the zip all] and it won't allow me to open it, I've checked my security settings and everything but the application just isn't opening properly.
Are you sure you downloaded the one for mac?
Ok apparently its something with my computer and somes games that were made on Renpy for some reason??? (but not all of Renpy games???) so I'll figure it out.
Hi! Apparently I have the same problem as you and for the other games that have exe file. So please, if you find the solution, please tell me here. I saw a comment of someone who had the same problem as us and sakevisual said we should open realistair.app which have a big purple icon, but I can't find it. :/ Thank you!!
What I did is I found the file that had the game icon and right clicked to view the package contents then went into Mac Os foulder and then clicked on the code looking icon and the game started playing
Derek looks like Odd from code lyoko
That could be an issue with how your browser handles itch.io's code. Try using a different browser to download it if you can. If that doesn't work, we also have a mirror of this file on ModDB: http://www.moddb.com/games/re-alistair/downloads/re-alistair
Interesting, fun and quick to play :D
where do i play this game
i don't know I'm new to the game😐
I have a question, the walkthrough talks about buying items to get extra scenes but how do i buy items with the money earned?
At certain events you can choose to go to the mall. If you don't run into someone there, you can pick a shop to visit. You can buy as many items from the shops as you can afford.
Help! Whenever I try to run "realistair.exe" it won´t open and a message appears saying "Could not execute". What should I do? TTwTT
I wanted to know before i decide to get this, do you actually play the MMORPG?
10/10 when it comes to cuteness. Short, but really enjoyable. Thank you! :)
Hi there <3
So i downloaded the zipfile~thingy and I'm not really a professional with computers... But when I wanted to extract the file it said: Protected archive. And I need to put in a code or something. So here is the problem.. I don't know that code.... Please help me
The file shouldn't be protected. It's automatically generated by Ren'py and doesn't have any password protection. I've added a second upload (Windows only - let me know if you need the Mac version instead). Hopefully that will work.
The link worked,
Thank you soooo~ much <33
You shouldn't need to extract the file, just open the zip file (double click) and then you should find the game's symbol (little head with black hair i think), I bet you'll figure out how to find it, then just open that and it should be the game.
Hello, so I downloaded this on my macbook air. It's pretty new, but when I unzipped the file and clicked on realistair.exe, it said that the file can't be played on it. Is there any other way to open it or is it not possible? >:
If you're on a Macbook, you'll want to look for realistair.app. If I recall correctly, it'll have a big purple icon.
Hey. Soo i played the game for the first time today and it was sooooo me to get the worst ending possible. I'm trying again tomorrow but with a lil bit more thinking. haha. This game is really fun, i love it!
When I downloaded the game, it didn't work properly and I don't know where to start it, can someone please explain?
Did you unzip the file first? It should go into a new folder, then you'll see a file called "realistair.exe." That's the game.
Yes I did that, also after I kept on trying to open the game I think it said something like, this game will not work on this device. So I think that at the very beginning it would not work for me and the device which I am using is a Chrose 0S. Can you please try to find out if the game will work for my device or not? If you can't then I appreciate all your help! Thanks!
Gee This Game Rocks .
Ah... This feels nostalgic to play. I've actually played it a few years back, probably 6 years ago(I was 12?! LOL) and I had fun playing it! I'll consider to play it once again since RE: Alistair++ was my very first visual novel that I've ever played. Keep up the good work you guys! I hope you continue to make games like this.
