I love this game but I suck at making money `(*>﹏<*)′ I am afraid I won't make the rent

I found this game on steam, that was before I was here on itch.io


Absolute fucking masterpiece

Where get steam key? I dont have it on download page

(1 edit) (+1)

Hello! Will this work on mac m1? i have it on steam and it doesn't work there because my computer doesn't run 32bit anymore. 


I have this game on steam. Is there a way to redeem it on itch.io?


Is this build of the game outdated? It says the download is for version, whereas on GOG it's


Installing on Linux in 2021 (Debian buster):

The provided package depends on external libraries, which makes things hard especially because they’re i386 (32-bit) not amd64 (64-bit) libraries.

I needed to do this:

    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

    sudo apt update

    sudo apt install zlib1g:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 libgl1:i386 libopenal1:i386 libssl-dev:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386

Then there’s one library that runs a very old version (libssl 1.0.0) and we need to get it manually:

    wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/o/openssl/libssl1.0...

    sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u12_i386.deb

This works but without sound, what’s missing is Pulseaudio support for i386:

    sudo apt install libpulse0:i386

Note: for some reason the above install removed a lot of my standard (amd64) Pulseaudio and Gnome stuff. I just reinstalled everything it removed, and it kept both the i386 library and the normal one, with both audios working.

At this point the game at last seems to work, but with all these old dependencies I don’t know if it will last.  Will report here later, but it might be safer to just make a chroot or virtual machine from 2017 to run the game in.


One more thing: You can't change the audio sink of the game on pulseaudio, which is bad for the streaming I wanted to do.  This turns out to be unrelated to the problems above; it's due to the game have a locked setting on OpenAL, and it can be changed by adding the following to ~/.alsoftrc :

Hello! Apologies to necro this thread; but have you any advice on getting it to work on Debian Bullseye? I can no longer install libssl1.0.0 due to me not knowing how to install the multiarch-support package
No worries if not and thank you very much for the instructions!

I am trying to get it to work on Bullseye as well. You should be able to install multiarch-support with the appropriate architecture with

sudo apt install multiarch-support:i386

From there you should be able to install libssl1.0.0. I still have not been able to get it to run. There may be possible issues with libGMResource.so and gmresource.dll.

maybe my libraries aren't up to date or I need to enable some sources? It just returns the "unable to find package" error message

As far as I understand the functions of multiarch-support is actually in-built to bullseye now; but obviously the libssl1.0.0 package doesn't know that because it's ancient and has no way of telling that bullseye contains the same functionality

or maybe i'm totally wrong, i read it on the debian forums

concerning that it still won't run, may have to go back to buster, anyways good luck with getting it to work & thank you for the advice!

I think you are right about the multiarch-support functions being native in bullseye. I had the following additional source added to my /etc/apt/sources.list form earlier experiments, and I'm guessing this is where the package is located:

deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free

I think that contrib and non-free are not necessary to locate the package. This should be added to the end of the sources.list in addition to the bullseye sources.

Based on elilla's comment, it might be easily playable on a virtual machine. Hopefully, it runs on buster with minimal effort in the virtual environment. Would your computer handle a virtual machine?

Edit 1: I tried it in a virtual machine and it worked fine. My installation of bullseye was new and did not have wine, after installing it the game works under bullseye without virtualization.

Edit 2: The package can be obtained directly from Debian's repository and installed with

wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/multiarch-support_2.28-10+deb10u1_amd64.deb 
sudo dpkg -i multiarch-support_2.28-10+deb10u1_amd64.deb

aaaaa thank you so much, I will try this tonight! much appreciated

REALLY GOOD REALLY VIBING. it's like coffee talk, which i played on nintendo switch. i've had this on my wishlist for a while, and if you're unsure of whether or not to buy it, just do it. worth every penny!!!


Does anyone know where to find the 2014 version of the prolouge? The link above just loops me to itch.io even when I download the app.


Did you ever find it? I'm here now with the same problem.

Yes I did. Check the VA-11 HALL-A reddit and look for posts by "Its2la84me". Thats my handle.


One of the best visual novels I ever player, good story, charming characters and gorgeous aesthetics.

My review in spanish: https://retroorama.blogspot.com/2020/07/indie-review-va-11-hall-cyberpunk.html

Hi there, I purchased this many months ago and I still cannot find my steam key. Please help.


You should be able to get your steam key on your purchase page. Check your account and click on download for the game. Tell us if you have any issues. Thanks

It works! Thank you so much.

What's the best way to buy the game? I want to support you with as big of a cut as possible!


Well, my understanding is that developers get to choose what cut they get from sales made here, while Steam and GOG supposedly take ~30% of the profit(I don't think either distributor has officially disclosed this information, though, so don't quote me on that).

I don't know what the fine print is on games like this that include Steam keys or what percentage the devs chose, but you essentially get a backup copy buying here, so if nothing else that's nice.

Why doesn't this game save when it says it saved on Vita?  Doesn't seem to save until some nebulous moment after saving.  This is the kind of thing that will kill any interest I had in playing a game.


Reminence of SNATCHER


Saw this game on sale in Steam. Seems like a good past time after playing other games.

Hell nah!

This game is eating my time now!


I bought VA-11 Hall-A about two years ago and finally i got the Steam key but it says it's duplicate. What can i do?

I also sent email to you two weeks ago but got no answer :\

Really cool game btw. and would like to get Steam version also! :]

(this is my second post and i have tried to email you for three times now also)

Hi. Just tried it on Windows but when I enable fullscreen everything is just black. Any idea how to disable it? I tried deleting the options.ini but this did not fix it.

Fullscreen toggle is the Enter key. Haven't run into your problem. Good luck with it though and hope its fixed by now.


On day 1, Sei comes in. She asks for a sweet drink, then for a classy drink, so I make a Brandtini, a sweet classy drink. Then she asks for a Brandtini, again - no reaction that it's the exact same drink she just got.


I'm pretty sure I purchased this game, but I can't seem to find the site with the download/proof that I did..

I remember when it was free.... good game though! :)


Dudes, I had one idea from another game. I know, you already heard it all but please just read this:

Cyberpunk Taxi.

Same world, different characters, same amazing OST blasting trough the radio.

Get people to their destination, make usual clients, see the crime, justice, corruption all in the first hand. Dive a little more in that beautiful world you guys created, with a totally new gameplay with more of the same comfy atmosphere.

A little ride in the rain with your client telling you just to drive...

Choices in detours and destinations around beautiful marks the city has...

Coffe/smoke breaks by the lake...

Ps. I hereby give any rights I had about this story to anyone who wants to make it real.

you, sir, are a genius. i will promise you if i go into game dev, this will be made.

What´s up guys. A fellow CRIOLLO here. When you plannin´ to get done a translated version... You guys need to expand. Here in home we are waitin´for it.

Excuse me. Is there a way to listen to Va11-Halla ost without converting each one of the game's songs to mp3?

Play them with VLC if you're on a desktop (Windows, macOS, Linux). Other players, such as foobar2000 and Winamp, may play them with a codec pack or plugin. They're encoded in Ogg Vorbis, which is the defacto "open source" lossy audio codec.

On an Android device, pretty much any music player, including Google Play Music, should work. On Windows Phone, get VLC. On iOS ... I dunno, I've never owned an iPhone. Conversion is probably the only way unless you're jailbroken.

foobar2000 has a mobile version that apparently is available on all the mobile stores including ios, as another option.


hey guys i just finished VA-11 Hall-A and absolutely loved it. I was wondering are there any plans for more games or expansions onto the Va-11 Hall-A world? and do yall take donations? feel like what yalll deserve more for this geem then what you would get from my humble bundle purchase


I'm glad that this game made to the Overwhelmingly Positive Humble Bundle as the game left me very satisfied. While the gameplay isn't difficult or really engaging in terms of difficulty (the only comparison I can draw to is Paper's, Please), it is an efficient vehicle for the story. The lack of challenge may disappoint people (even myself at times), but I liked that I didn't have to struggle too much to get to the story which.

The story, art, and characters were great and I really dug the vibe of the universe. Don't wanna make this long winded but the game was pretty good and wanted to get some random thoughts out there.

This is the most amazing thing ever!!

I bought the game on here, will we get steam versions? Thanks.

Check under your downloads for the game under "My Collections". There should be a code for a steam key or a way to claim a code for said steam key.

Source: Me double checking my own purchase.

I greatly enjoyed this game. The characters and story were excellent. Will you be doing another story with these characters or in this setting? I would love to have more!

Could you export the demo to mac please?


So I'm having somethin of a unique problem here. I've had the issue before, actually, with another game. When I try to launch the Itch.io version of this game...Steam launches. It launches, and takes me to the store page of the game. I had this issue long ago with the game Risk of Rain, which was fixed with an update. I never heard what caused it, however.

Any ideas of what the issue is?

Hi. Any chance the Prologue (and OST) will make it to Steam somehow? I bought the Steam version before I found out that this was available here. I want to play the prologue game (and listen to the music), but I think paying the full $15 is a little redundant :(

Had a blast with the game!


I bought VA-11 Hall-A about year ago and finally i got the Steam key but it says it's duplicate. What can i do?

I also sent email to you two weeks ago but got no answer :\

I love this game so far. Lovely we have access to a prologue (which I have yet to check out) and ost. I watched the first parts of it on YouTube but could not resist wanting to play this myself. Im very glad I decided to buy this, and I especially lovvvveeeee that it is in the same reality as ROM! :-)


I can't run the game on Linux. I'm getting a core dump from a floating point exception.

Any hope for having a demo version for MacOSX?

The art is mindblowing, as well as my favorite style of pixel art.

The story has depth and the characters are unique. I love playing this game while relaxing and listening to some chill techno.

The soundtrack makes me drool, all the music is unique and pleasing to the ears.

I really look forward to more titles from these developers. The art style, writing, and music fit together so perfectly. I know I couldn't resist buying another game with their names behind it; Can't wait for more games from Sukeban Studio!
