Wind ~a breath of heart~ is a very impressive looking visual novel done by minori, released in April 2002 and then sold in a deluxe edition in December 27, 2002. The story revolves around Makoto and Hinata, his sister. Both of them moved away from their hometown when they were children, but returned when they were older. As the story starts, Makoto remembers a promise he made to a childhood friend, Narukaze Minamo. As Makoto says goodbye to her, she makes a promise along with him: that they were to be married when they met again, regardless of how much time passed. Once you get off the train, you begin living out the events of Makoto’s day to day activities, culminating in… Well, I’m not gonna spoil it for you.
The graphics in this game are what you’d expect from a visual novel - character drawings that change depending on the situation or mood that they’re in. Think of it as a Snatcher-like game. Except the goal is to find your true love. What stands out, at least to me, was the music, and the variety of themes that it has. The game also has vocal acting for every character other than your own, which can get rather annoying at times but helps with the mood.

From the looks of it, this is really the “result of many hours of love and dedication from a small group of people who received zero monetary compensation for their efforts.” Thanks to insani and No Name Losers for their effort.
Note: The patch is too big to host on RHDN. (98megs)
