Hourglass Summer: Dating can lead the Catastrophe Theorist to clues.


The story revolves around a Japanese sophomore named Kotaro Makimura. As the school year ends and summer vacation approaches, he decides to admit his feelings to his crush, the beautiful Kaho Serizawa. As hopeless as the situation looks to his best friends Ai and Takeshi, he is determined to make Kaho his girlfriend by the end of summer vacation. However, on his way home, he has a collision with a mysterious stranger, and ends up getting covered in a strange multi-colored powder. When he wakes up the next day, he finds himself waking up on September 1 - the first day of the next school year. He also learns that Kaho, who had been his girlfriend, had died in a car accident. Eventually, Kotaro discovers that he has begun day-dropping, in which he skips days, and goes back and forth in time through different days of the summer vacation. With the help of Ligene the Time Patroller (also translated as Lee Jane), Kotaro must win Kaho's heart and prevent her death before he runs out of time.
Although Kaho is the girl that Kotaro aspires for at the beginning of the game, the player can choose different decisions that will eventually lead him to relationships with one of the other four girls. Of course, the wrong decisions could result in an ending in which Kotaro wins the affections of none of them. Although the objective of the game is to become the boyfriend of one of the girls, some of these other endings can be the only way to view certain images not found in the other paths.
 Kotaro, the Catastrophe Theorist, has experienced visions/dreams that has given him Catastrophe Theory clues, in which he dates several girls to get clues that lead to his discovery on how to prevent a Catastrophe Theory of one of the girls he loves, from dying. So, by dating and engaging in courtship, romantic behaviour, the Catastrophe Theorist can get clues from the girls to prevent Catastrophe Theory. Every single good opportunity with a woman must be taken to get Catastrophe Theory Clues. All girls are or have the abilities to be mothers and give birth to life. Mothers on the planet have clues to provide for the Catastrophe Theorist. Sex, in it itself, lead to clues. The act of courtship for libidinous behaviour can direct the Catastrophe Theorist in finding clues. Girls are nurturing and by being the nurturing mother, they nurture the earth. Thus the protection of the Earth and it's survival is to be looked upon by getting clues out of participating in courtship with the girls.
