Download

V1.2 of the game (which fixes more bugs and typos) is up on itch.io! Will try to get it up on the two mirror links too asap.

Itch.io (all platforms)

Mirror #1 | Mirror #2

Sorry for the delay, guys. Itch.io was giving me problems when I tried to upload. It should be fixed now, and this version should fix the bug with the gallery.
Have fun! My apologies once again.

Hello! As we've noted above, we've been having some issues with the distributable files. If you don't see the download link yet, it's probably still uploading. (The file is quite large, I think. ^_^; )

Windchimes, who has the distributable files, is currently asleep (probably) so if the files still don't show up, she will fix them when she wakes up (in a few hours). Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you so much for your interest!

Congrats on finishing for NaNo! I just finished playing through Mer's route. The sprites are lovely and the music really drew you in to the world. I do wish it had maybe stopped at some of the more tense parts just because it was a little odd to have the jovial music during those moments xD

The banter between Mer and Charming was sweet, and I enjoyed her confidence and her resolve to get married for her kingdom without complaining (much) instead of taking the 'runaway' route like so many other things do. It was an interesting take on a common idea. And of course the gender bending. I like how you tied in the little mermaid fairy tail with Mer.

I was a little surprised by how fast the romance went, but I know you guys said you're going to be changing a lot with the expansion, so I'll leave my comments about the story there xD

Overall it was sweet and fluffy with a heroine who was a nice change of pace, especially for a Princess. She was... just so charming. c; I'll probably wait for the expansion to play through the other routes, I was already kicking myself for playing this instead of waiting but I was just so curious.

Nice job!

Thanks so much, everyone ;u; We really appreciate the comments<3

Aaaaah, thank you so much for your words of encouragement & critique <3 We'll keep your suggestions in mind! 8'D And oh gosh YES, Mer's route was soo rushed ;u; Thankfully, each existing route will be twice as long as it is now (and will be rewritten near completely), so that should help -- or so I hope x'D I'm really glad you enjoyed the VN, and I hope you enjoy the other routes as well once the expansion is finally ready! 8'D Seriously, thanks for all your support & notes.
