Just a general question. I'm doing a Let's Play of Bionic Heart on another forum.

Is there a way to extract the text from the program? It would save me time from having to type everything.

Yes, though it will output it based on the filenames and not the normal order you see in the story, so could be all messed over :)
http://www.sendspace.com/file/whg38r is a rpyc file to place inside the game/ directory alongside the other, it should produce a dump_text.txt in the game folder with all game texts.

Thank you.

EDIT: well, it doesn't seem to work. Is it normal it's such a small file (> 1 kB)? A dump.txt file is created, but there's no text in it.

Hmm I haven't tried it with the new version of Ren'Py indeed (that script is quite old). Wait, I have executed it here, so here's the text dump: http://www.sendspace.com/file/u0wt1b

Just wondering, what are the inspirations/influences for Bionic Heart?

As far as visual novels go, the theme is pretty unique, the only other game with similar themes I can think of are Desire and Critical Point (Japanese 90s adventure games).

Well, for sure Blade Runner as you can imagine :) Then also "I, Robot" by I.Asimov and "Neuromancer" by W.Gibson.

Something I noticed when browsing Desura:
You did put two pictures twice on the Desura page for the game (elderly scientist and you may call me Julia). Ist there any intention in this?
