Let us live on this land so arid.

KARAKARA. It is the sound of aridity. It is the sound of dry asphalt and sandy winds. It is the sound of relentless sunshine, as well as the sound of a withering race.

The “Age of Dusk.” It is a time of senescence for the human species, during which hybrids known as the “Others”—those who are human, yet not—exist in great numbers. On the windswept barrens of a land without moisture, a small gathering of people make their living in a world they no longer know. Down a stretch of highway and far from the heart of the town are two such people who run a small diner. To them, the circumstances that reshaped their world is of far less concern than the number of lunch boxes they can load into their delivery vehicle. After all, leaving customers hungry is not good for business, and business keeps them fed. Day after day, they occupy themselves with the endless work of their store. However, the comfortable monotony of their daily lives is turned on its head when they discover a large suitcase by the roadside on their way home from deliveries. Lying on the suitcase, un-moving, is a young girl with pink hair…

Though parched, they keep each other company,

and while hollow, they fill each other’s voids.

So shall they live

on this land so arid.




A long highway stretches uncurving from the heart of Sagami Francisco. The sparse clouds grant little respite from the merciless heat of the sun.
Off to the side of the highway, a lone diner sits quietly a good ways from town. Though small, the work involved in running the diner keeps the main character and Lucia plenty busy.
Inside the diner is a cozy atmosphere with a kitchen to the back and tables in the front. Once they finish the day’s work, the weary pair will retreat upstairs to their living quarters.

  1. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    It may be short, but it was still good, if it was a bit longer it would have been better

  2. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Beautiful, laid back, comedic, romantic.

  3. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    KARAKARA is a cute game with all of my favorite elements I look for in a full length 50+ hour game. Its beautifully designed, easy to get into, has the cute comedic and romantic parts that I can never get enough of. 4/5 stars.

  4. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    I loved playing KaraKara — it was a fun read with cute girls and exactly what I needed. Unfortunately, I wish it had delved more into its interesting world and stayed away from the vampire trope. Other than that, it was wonderful.

  5. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    It was a really short VN but it was totally sweet and heartwarming to see the character development. Would recommend

  6. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This game was a 10 out of 10 would fap again. The amount of sexuality is amazing. The game starts with a intense 3 some and thats awesome

  7. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This maybe a short VN but it is very cute, so if you like cute stuff then this VN is all for you.

  8. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    KARAKARA is a light, simple and happy tale set in a post apocalyptic world. Although there are mentions to an ominous past event that caused this, it’s never really focused on or explored in any great detail. Still the story was very enjoyable, the characters were lovable and the world itself was quite intriguing. It might be a brief Kinetic Novel (no choices), but anyone looking for an easy-going Slice of Life/Romance VN shouldn’t be disappointed. Highly recommended, do yourself a favor and buy it.

  12. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    The game has a nice atmosphere as it has a relaxing environment with good music.

  13. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This vn gave me good vibes because of its story especially its music. Although it may be a short vn, this vn will entertain you. Nice music, characters, and the story. Hoping to play the second game.

  14. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Set in a apocalyptic, its a cute slice of life VN!! <3

  15. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    A pretty good game!

  16. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Very cute

  17. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This Game drew me in not knowing a thing before diving into it. I was rewarded with an amazing story that I wasn’t really expecting and the sound track made it even better, its simple yet throws you some curve balls enough to intrigue you to wanting more as of yet I have not played Karakara 2 but plan on doing so soon 😀

  18. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Good play

  19. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Honestly, this game is wonderful. I freaking love it. The story is wonderful, the music is beautiful, and the art is extremely high quality. Definitely buy it while it is on sale.

  20. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Slice of Life VN in an apocalyptic setting exploring interesting concepts

  21. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    girls and animals a good fusion for a game (and sex)its kinda short but it make up since there is a 2nd game

  22. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    If you enjoy slice of life, cute girls, and a soothing atmosphere, then there’s no reason not to play Karakara. It excels at all three without overstaying its welcome and it’s one of the better VNs I’ve played of its genre.

  23. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Well written with endearing characters. A little short but worth the time.

  24. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This is an amazing game, with lovable characters, extremely cute girls, entertaining story and nice art, music and atmosphere.

  25. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    It’s quite short but has a second game. Even if you only play #1 you will most likely be happy with your purchase

  26. Verified Owner (verified owner)

  38. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed it. Every time I closed Karakara, I looked forward to picking it up again and getting back into the story….hehehe, and by story you know what I mean 😉 Very sexy, very good art, there’s no reason not to buy it for such a ridiculously good price.

  39. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This was really fun.

  40. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    This was adorable!

  41. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    The characters are cute and lovable, 10/10 would buy plushies if possible.

  42. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Short visual novel that doesn’t really seem to be going anywhere but the characters were lovable enough.

  43. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    very good vn, but kinda short9.5/10

  44. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    A great moe blob

  45. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    If you are over 18 and this itEEs your first time playing a Visual Novel then this is a good game to start with. ItEEs short but has some replayability value, the only potential problem you might run into is figuring out how to run the game your first time.

  46. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Bought this on a whim, don’t regret it one bit! The art is very beautiful, as you can see from the gallery, and the world is very interesting to say the least, it has some mystery to it. The main heroines are cute and easily lovable. As someone who is studying Japanese

  47. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    was very short, and i mean VERY shortthe girls were cute tho

  48. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Gotta love it

  49. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    The game was fun and the characters were adorable.

  50. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Very short and sweet!

  51. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    It’s really cute, bought this game randomly but don’t regret it.

  52. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Cute, emotive little story about slice of life in this somewhat post-apocalyptic world. The 18+ content is more an add than part of the plot but good art in general anyway.

  53. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Fun story, but very short; obviously leads into another story. No choices/paths. 18+ content is nice, but irrelevant to plot (not a bad thing, just saying).

  54. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    As others have said its a cute story. I like the the story delevopment with the existing relationships becoming changed through a new addition. The H scenes are good as well

  55. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Short, cute and adorable

  56. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    8 out of 10 doctors agree moe is good against stress.

    The other 2 didn’t want mushrooms in their bento. =p

  57. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    starts slow, to let you get used to the characters and the world. but the art and characters are just to cute.

  58. Verified Owner (verified owner)

    Short and adorable. There is a vol. 2, but technically the story isn’t finished yet, so unless you’re willing to deal with that, this is definitely worth a buy especially considering the fair price.
