Help Firefly Diary’s Mion Escape In This Flash Game

By Eugene . June 20, 2014 . 2:00pm


htoL#NiQ, or Firefly’s Diary, released this week in Japan, and to get people in the mood, there’s a simple Flash game on the game’s website. You can play it here.


The goal in the Flash game is to get amnesiac Mion from the cannon launch all the way to the end. Left click lets her jump, and holding it will have her glide with the umbrella. It’s cute and fun, but gets real tough later.


See how far you can get and let us know in the comments!

  • This was honestly one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I wish other companies would do neat little things like this. Makes the game stick with you.

    And yet again my hype continues to climb. Must protect Mion!

  • Malon

    I wonder if this one will get localized. It seems like the game has got such a unique atmosphere.

    • chibidw

      It’s an NIS release so I’d lay money on it.

    • Super easy game to localize. There’s pretty much no text after the first chapter, there’s nothing spoken. Just a pure game experience.

      Also, because of that, there’s very little reason (aside from digital only unless you pre-ordered the premium box) to not import it. Very easy to play as an import title.

  • Puru

    You even get a reward :o
    It was pretty cool. They see me rollin, they hatin.

  • GamerLegend

    localize ASAP!

  • Jesse

    So far, I get stuck at that large Shadow at 512m. DX
    Edit: Now almost 900m

  • Land of Green Pasture

    damn… I just realized why the name is htoL#NiQ

    • Malon

      What did you infer from it?

      • Land of Green Pasture

        Hotaru no Nikki (try to read htoL#NiQ a la japanese)? Japanese translation of ‘Diary of Firefly’

  • Fragmentsofdreams

    T-that sound… and that w-was b-blood… b-but i… i just wanted to…
    My innocence… give it back… T_T

  • new_tradition

    I’m so sorry Mion. I let your life end so many times T.T

    So far managed to get to around the 350-ish mark…

    EDIT: Okay, I got to the 50-ish mark, but holy hell. How are you supposed to get past that thing? O_o

  • Freakmasta

    I got 772m. The final part gets hectic.

  • SupaPhly

    htoL#NiQ? did they create a game title by bashing their head against the keyboard? :P

  • Jesse

    YES, I finished it. =D It gets crazy near the end, and one jump is pretty precise.

  • Shinobikens

    Do you even get anything for getting to the end cus I’m tired of this shit

    • Shinobikens

      Holy fuck I finally did it

  • Yuuki

    i got to 912 (88meters left i mean).
    but why did they choose flash and that button layout, i died like 100 times jsut cause it made a glide instead of jump >.<

    Hmtl 5, left jump right glide. Simple as that but no…. we choose flash….

  • new_tradition

    Wait, how are you guys seeing the numbering? For me I start the game with 1000 and it gradually goes down. I assume getting to 0 is the goal..?

    • Shinobikens

      Aw why would you post that. People are supposed to suffer for those

      • Fragmentsofdreams

        Because i’m kind.
        I can delete the comment if you want though…
        I can be an ass too…

        • Shinobikens

          But I suffered for those :| It’s not rewarding at all if you don’t work for it

          • Fragmentsofdreams

            Fine… there, deleted…

          • pls upload it again…

          • Wappuli

            I only saved one of the resolutions, but here’s that for you.

          • Thx =D

          • Yuuki

            You know that this pretty egoistic thing do say there are tons of people out there who aren’t either due health reasons or mentally not able do finish it. Would you say do these people that they should earn it themself?

        • Yuuki

          It also isn’t accessable I guess you need a cookie or so. Could you upload them somewhere?

          • Fragmentsofdreams

            No, Shinobikens is right, it wouldn’t be fair…

          • Yuuki

            It would be the same as with let’s plays some don’t want to have to work hard for a game. For me a game has to be fun in foremost and not pure chance. Also there is no way in hell that you can solve that game on a damn laptop like the one I have to use.

          • Fragmentsofdreams

            Have faith in yourself, you can make it.

          • Yuuki

            Not as long as the laptop lags like a second behind.

  • Ren Yuumei

    She so cute!

    Welp i suck i’ll just google the wallpaper

    • Yuuki

      In case you find them could you post the link here?

  • AndyLC

    It’s super cute but I wasn’t expecting so much… blood from this flash game

  • ShootThatWay

    I was confident on my (insert decent # here) try but…
    then my computer lagged for less than a second and then blood was shed, again. :(

    I don’t think I want to shoot her out of a cannon again. T-T

  • I recorded and uploaded my first play-through of chapter one of the actual game for anyone curious how it plays.

    • Let’s hope for a localization because this looks very original and interesting.

  • s07195

    674m is my record.
    She’s so cute I can ignore the blood splatters when she hits anything. >3<

    • iFaiska

      87m mine.

      I messed up with the big monster ~

      • s07195

        You mean total, or remaining? If it’s remaining, then you’re good. 0_0
        Also, mine is total distance gone, i.e. 1000-remaining.

        • iFaiska


          I finished it after trying a few more times, and got the hang of it.

          In truth, there is only 2 difficult parts. 200~260m and 66~80m remaining.

          Good stuff, was fun.

  • SoundMatch

    I hate that asshole at the end


    • SoundMatch

      Anybody got tips as to get to the two small platforms?

      • SoundMatch

        I DID IT! I’ll post the wall papers below for any lurkers who want it. I hope that isn’t against the rules.

        • SoundMatch

          Resolutions are


  • Boohoo, I should have pre-ordered the premium box Day One… The only ones available are going for super high prices.
