This game crashes every time I try to open it on Windows :(
Rainn and Skye
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
Girls' road trip to a forest cabin in never-ending rain.
You're Rainn, Skye's girlfriend. Skye has gotten you two a forest cabin for the next few days, and you're tasked to drive there with her — on yet another rainy day.
The road trip features chill driving while chatting with Skye about some likely and unlikely circumstances. And, perhaps, there will be something nice at the forest cabin too once you get there...
Control the car with WASD and the camera with mouse. You can toggle the in-game menu with Esc. If you have a gamepad, you might want to use that for smoother controls.
Ideally an OpenGL 3.1 capable graphics card, a quad core CPU and 2 GB of free RAM. The game may work on a bit older hardware too, though the performance might be poor.
Who made this?
I'm a geeky dyke, a lesbian lizard and an independent game developer. I make LGBT+ themed games, primarily about and for queer women.
I would like to thank my Patrons for making the remake possible:
- Peter "Wraithkal" Christiansen @Wraithkal
- Toby Alden @tobyalden
- Seriously Dev @SeriouslySenpai
This game was originally a submission for Rainbow Jam 2019. It was developed in just 10 days. In 2021, I remade the game for the Queer Games Bundle 2021.

Hi! It's a bit of a wild guess as the details are rather slim, but if it doesn't run at all, it could be because the launcher can't find the Visual C++ Redistributable. In other words, you probably don't have it installed and I probably made a bit of blunder back when I packaged the game.
If you want to give fixing it shot, copy the files msvcp120.dll and msvcr120.dll from the jre\bin directory to the same directory where Rainn and Skye.exe is and then try running the game. If it works, then that was indeed the problem and I can upload a new zip with the fix applied. Otherwise, no idea what else it could be.
Still didn't work :(
Aww, I'm sorry! Annoyingly, it works fine on my computer, so I have no idea what could be wrong there. The only other good wild guess I have is that maybe you don't have graphics drivers with sufficient OpenGL support installed.
If the game manages to start at all, it should write a log file to "C:\Users\...\Saved Games\Rainn and Skye\log.txt" or something like that. If that file exists, then it might offer some hints on where things go wrong.
Found the log file. Here's the relevant part:

Ah, yeah, it's basically saying that your graphics drivers don't like the game. Sadly, the game doesn't have detailed enough logging to tell me why the shader fails to load and compile exactly. It's a really simple shader, though, and if that doesn't work, I doubt the shaders used by the actual 3D stuff will work either.
I don't know if there's any reasonably easy way for me to fix it, but I'm curious since I haven't seen the shaders fail to load before. If you can bear with me, it would be nice to know which graphics card and graphics driver version you have exactly.
10/10 good game
The drive kinda scared me to death, lol. The car handling is quite... "unique", shall we say (a mix of boat and snowmobile? KB+mouse here though), so I was always afraid I'd crash and kill both me and my cute girlfriend while drifting around on the highway. ;) That's especially true since Skye expects me to look at her to continue the conversation during the drive... "God, girl, I seriously need to look at the road, or we're going to die any moment!!1" ;)
Thank god we both got to the cabin in one piece. ;p
It was really sweet and cute though, especially at the cabin! :)
On a side-note: I know nobody will be interested in this, but as the game bundles OpenJRE 11, it will fail to run on ancient versions of MS Windows (like XP). If you have an Oracle JRE/JDK 1.8 installed though, you can still run it: Open a cmd terminal, enter the game folder, and execute: javaw.exe -jar "game\game.jar". It'll work, doesn't need any Java 11 exlusive stuff. :)
Yeah, the controls are a bit wacky. It's a bit more bearable with a gamepad, though not that much. But it's not as bad as the original at least!
I guess it's a bit hard to tell, but you don't actually need to look at Skye. Even when the game asks if you'd like to, you don't have to. The dialogue will be a bit different if don't, but not in a punishing way. The only punishment is that you can't see her reactions if you never look at her. :3
I'm glad you liked this cabin scene. It was fun to make. :)
Eeeee, I love it! By far my favorite of your works that I’ve played so far!! Adorable and moody and super well animated and cute as heck! With the perfect ending~~~
Not sure if this is intentional or not, but once I got to the fade-to-black during the kiss the game seemed to just hang? I had to quit by just closing it.
Didn’t interfere with my enjoyment in any way, but I thought I’d let you know! ^_^
Yeah, it's kind of intended because I didn't have time to create a proper ending back when I made the game for the game jam. That might change somewhat soon, though, because I have actually been working on a remake of this game lately... :)
i played your game on my channel
