All text has been translated, but there are a few minor bugs/bad translations, the most notable being related to the instances when 3 characters speak at the same time.
This port does not use Wine or any of it's derivatives. All I did was apply an icon and package it into a *.app (and a nice font).
If the definitive patch ever gets finalized, I'll make a hotfix for it.

Clannad (???? Kuranado) is a Japanese visual novel developed by Key released on April 28, 2004, and its Full Voice version is partially responsible for starting the RLVM project; its purpose being to properly emulate Key's RealLive/Visual Novel engine. The game itself follows the life of Tomoya Okazaki, who is a third year high school student resentful of his life. His mother passed away from a car accident when he was younger, causing his father to resort to alcohol and gambling. This results in fights between the two until Tomoya's shoulder is injured in a fight. Since then, Tomoya has had distant relationships with his father, causing him to become a delinquent over time. While on a walk to school, he meets a strange girl named Nagisa Furukawa who is a year older, but is repeating due to illness. Due to this, she is often alone as most of her friends have moved on. The two begin hanging out and slowly, as time goes by, Tomoya finds his life shifting in a new direction.
Personal Review: (10/10)
Oh my God... just, oh my God...
This visual novel is perfect. It has a great soundtrack. It's long, but not so long that a path is boring. The characters are each extremely dynamic, and have their own problems that the Tomoya must solve. Every good ending is pretty much a golden one. (Although there are a couple instances where you feel like you really earned the ending, especially in Tomoyo's and Nagisa's routes.)
This was the first game to ever make me cry - it is not for the faint of heart. (Misae's route is a good route to start with.)
The translation patch itself is a little buggy, but I can't ding it for that, especially since clean-up is still in progress.
