Differences from the free version?
I though this game was a free RPG maker project. So....what are we paying for here?

Your paying for the hope that people who make games like this can actually make a living off it, as opposed to them bing forced to make another Minecraft/DayZ clone just to put a roof over their head.

Oh I see, so it's exact same game with no changes whatsoever, just with a pricetag added, right?

The game can be a lot more than a free RPG maker project- you presuming it to be that shows you have little to no interest in the story an individual can create and therefor I label you as a blatent fail; effort was actually put into this and if you can't appreciate it, then that's your business. Your business is your business, and your opinion is your opinion; but putting down a game because it doesn't fit around the way you WANT it to isn't a good enough justification. I'm not saying you shouldn't, but the way you put it is just very rude and insulting to the game and the designer.

Don't misunderstand.

Since I played rpg maker version, I am asking if steam version has any differences. Nothing more.

I thought the paid version had extra dialogue/scenes and new art/music?

I wonder the same. I played the original, kinda enjoyed it, but I'm not sure I'd pay for it, even less so now that I already know how it goes. Is this expanded, somehow?

Even if it is, is that such a bad thing?

Hey everyone,

If you first played Actual Sunlight early in 2013, when it was completely free, then this version has new stuff: New character sprites, new CG artwork, new music and several thousand more words.

The easiest way to know is this: If you played a version where Evan's sprite was just a bald little generic RPG Maker guy, that was the really early version. You can buy it with confidence that it now includes stuff you haven't seen. A lot of the additional monologues really fill out the latter part of the game, in my opinion, and I don't think you'd regret purchasing it and playing again to see them.

Thanks! I was going to buy it regaurdless but it's nice to know that there is new content. I'll play through it again. Thanks for the response and the hard work.

So you are upset that you have to pay money for a beautiful game? Shame...

After playing this, I have to say there are still lots of stock RPG Maker tiles and characters. Will O'Neil, you did a great job writing this and adding the not-stock content, but in my honest oppinion, I still feel like you didn't reach the point to make this worth posting on Steam. It just is too short, and uses too much of the stock RPG Maker tiles and tech.

I enjoyed playing this game, but I do regret paying for it.

EDIT: By stock content I include the Modern Tileset, available even here on Steam
