Great game really love your art style it's unique! Looking forward for your another project

Thank you!! :-)


Wonderful job~~

I enjoyed this game very much. The art is very pretty to look at, and is on the more realistic side for visual novels (which I absolutely adore--I love anime style art, but more unique art styles hold my heart). I love when Tell smiles, she's such a dear. The story was fun to read and the writing engaging. I got a good feel of the world, even without playing your other games. The romance was well written, and flustered me (a good thing!!).

The only "issue" I encountered was when I didn't clear a "check"--like when Tell says "Tell me something about you that no one else knows." In my last playthrough, I passed the affection check and our handsome lord tells Tell he falls in love too easily. But in my first playthrough, I failed this check, and the writing didn't quite make sense--I thought maybe I chose some other choice accidentally? Like there was nothing signifying I failed the check, and it confused me a little. Maybe it's a bug? This was a minor issue for me though, and I'm not sure if I'm making sense u-u

I look forward to your other work :3

Thank you so much! :) I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed the story & art! (Making realistic sprites a bit more expressive was one of the ways I wanted to challenge myself for this game.)

I've been working on a few of the bugs and other reports this weekend, seems like the last few bugs are the ones where it's are hard to tell whether they're bugs. Thanks for bringing this to my attention and I'll go over that section for the upcoming build. :)


First of all, great game! I really liked the story and how it developed, as well as the dilemma in which Tell finds herself constantly. The art and music are great and so fitting in every way.

The thing I liked the most was how the story develops around taking the risk to move from where you were, jumping from a known bad to what seems an unknown, even worst bad, but you can never know for sure. A great thematic very well achieved!


Thank you for the comment :) I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the art & music and noticed the theme!
