It probably wouldn't be hard to write a decompiler for them, since it's a pretty simple format. But I don't really have any reason to, as I have the source files.

If you're curious, here's a sample of the script used in the house:
Code:
#0200
<flagJump>2,202
<keyLock><stopPlayer>
<openTextBox><facePic2>sis-face<playSound>10
<text>Oh, hey Tess.<nod><clearText>
<facePic1>girl-face<playSound>9<text>...<nod>
<text>hey, sis...<nod><clearText><facePic2>sis-face<playSound>10
<text>Sorry things didn't work out yesterday.<nod><text>
Maybe next year, yeah?<nod><clearText>
<facePic1>girl-face<playSound>9
<text>Yeah...<nod><text>
...next year...<nod><flagNotJump>1,201<closeTextBox><setFlag>2<end>

#0201
<clearText><facePic2>sis-face<playSound>10
<text>Oh, your friend Milly was by earlier.<nod><text>
She left a letter by the door for you.<nod><text>
I wonder what it says...<nod><setFlag>2<closeTextBox><end>

#0202
<keyLock><stopPlayer>
<openTextBox><facePic2>sis-face<playSound>10
<text>If you're going out to play, be back
in time for dinner, okay?<nod><clearText>
<facePic1>girl-face<playSound>9
<text>...<nod><text>okay, sis...<nod><closeTextBox><end>
As I expected -- it's basically TSC.
Shame I can't even mod the game's text, because it crashes when it runs any modified script. (Likely because of the condensation.)

If you keep the new string/text the same length as the original, it should work fine.

So there's not way to change the string length?

There's a way. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out on your own though, IMO.
I don't know doc, can't you just tell me?
Code:
MSTZ     „  
   	2   d  (   e   
     d   Z   e 	  -   Do you really want to leave?
     Yes
     No:f   ;2   <   	   ;    f  ;2   <   	
   
         ô  È x (!È   %	   girl-face"	       ...hey, Milly...   5     
&
   girl2-face"       Oh there you are. (   
I was wondering when you would show up.    
How are you feeling?
%	   girl-face"	    
   I'm, uh...
&
   girl2-face"    '   You haven't been up here before, right? *   
Come closer so you can get a better look.
%	   girl-face"	       ...    okay.;2   <   	    ;    	   5     	
   &
   girl2-face"       It's a nice view, isn't it?
%	   girl-face"	       yeah...
&
   girl2-face"    +   This is where I come when I'm feeling down. ^   
I know we're not supposed to play here, but
looking down at the valley really makes me happy.    
That's why I brought you here. @   
I thought maybe if you looked at it,
it would cheer you up too.
"       But then I had an idea.    
Why don't we go down there?
%	   girl-face"	       ...please don't kill yourself..
&
   girl2-face"       Exactly! K   
There must be something really good down
there if we're not allowed to go! J   
Or maybe no one's gone down before, because
they've all just been afraid.    
We could be the first!    
Wouldn't that be fun?
"       You'll come with me, right?
%	   girl-face"	       um...
&
   girl2-face"       Hehehe!    
I'll see you at the bottom!#     	   #     	–   %	   girl-face"	       ...   ú      
   P       ,
All those spaces (that aren't in the text) are shown in Notepad++ as NUL, STX, SUB, SOH, VT, BS, FS, FF, etc.

I'd recommend opening it up with a hex editor, not notepad. The compiled scripts won't make much sense otherwise.

Wow, I looked at the development log and it looks really good. The game looks very detailed and better than the first game in that respect.
I can't wait to play it!

It looks like the worlds from Tess and Rip are slowly colliding... (which I guess makes sense since Nightmargin is part of the credits)

Anyways this looks underwatery exciting. I do like how the New and Load text is presented.

I hope this counts, because I spent all day working on it. It's a mod for a game called Duck Game that allows you to wear the masks of the Tess characters. It's also the result of my first time ever using paint.NET, but hopefully skill isn't required to qualify.

sharks
aquarium
water tank on Tess's back
Does Tess collect the sharks by putting them in the water tank, then drain the tank?
Are those sharks made of chocolate or something?

Nowhere, the stalls are just for show and are actually empty
The sinks, on the other hand, actually drain directly from the water outside, housing the sharks

I have sent you your OST key.

The tank actually holds water, surprisingly. And tess will be able to shoot water with a water gun.

It also acts as a sort of water-meter, letting you know how much water you have left before you need to refill it.

there is no handicap stall
Yeah. I guess the bathrooms in this game aren't ADA compliant.

Who the hell puts a bathroom next to a shark tank?!?

Really making me question where the uh, "waste" gets flushed down into.
Those might just be regular fish, they aren't supposed to be sharks or anything in particular.

This game was amazing, Beautiful graphics and music, touching story and it had such a nostalgic and dreamy feel to it, not played a game with this sort of atmosphere for a while.

I didn't know a second one was already in development, Yay! :)

I very much doubt it but if you'd like maybe some music making I'd be honored to make something even if it was just a single piece.
