Ex Astris
Chapter 05

Set in a ‘near-future’ on a fictional world, Ex Astris follows the story of Lanis Rosenberg, a newly graduated doctor working in the Loennian military. Doubtful of her abilities to cope in the army and lost with her direction in life, Lanis’ world is suddenly turned upside-down when she is transferred to the secretive, militaristic nation of Xian. There, she is assigned to a subject named A-28 'Ash'. An emotionless, unstable, biologically engineered soldier and her opposite in every way…

After the incident with A-28, Lanis and company are whisked away to find themselves in the company of a band a rebels who have been desperately seeking Lanis’ abilities. What lays beyond the walls of Sar-Quei is a history more complex and dark than the Loennian woman had ever imagined, with both A-28 and herself unknowingly at the heart of it’s solution!

Format: Episodic / Kinetic Visual Novel
Engine: RenPy
Genre: Light Sci-Fi / Drama / GxB / Supernatural
Platform: PC/Mac/Linux
Duration: Short



Creator's Note: Ugh I'm gettin too old for this.
Chapter 05 is done! I'm halfway there! (Or over halfway I think.) I really don't know what I'm doing with this anymore. XD I did have the story all planned out but it seems as though the story has other plans. Especially this chapter, yikes! Even I didn't see any of this coming and I'm writing the damn thing. ^^ No more from me though, I had to keep a lot of content in this chapter hidden for spoilers.

P.S. I'm totally aware I mentioned Katarina had a son in chapter 4 and it's magically become a daughter... because I'd forgotten I'd made it a son. ^^; I'll be changing that reference when I go back through Chapter 04.

------- SUPPORT EX ASTRIS -------
I also want to announce that I've started up a 'Buy me a coffee' account!
https://ko-fi.com/ceralh
As much as I could go to Patreon I still want to offer my work for everyone to read and I myself as a consumer dislike subscription-based payment systems so I don't want to expect it from fans either. Ex Astris still does cost me a lot of time (well over 100hrs per chapter) and money to produce though, since I do everything alone. I also purchase the rights to anything I'm unable to do myself or don't want to expend the time on doing such as 3D setting kits, photos for backgrounds, music, SFX, not to mention the website and bandwidth to allow downloads etc...
So if you like my stuff, a little goes a long way and you'd have my eternal thanks!!! :D

aghhhh that ending

now I have no choice but to anxiously wait for the next episode >.>

(on a side note, congratulations on finishing it! I look forward to the next episode >u>)
urgh, it's pretty sad Echidna thinks she has to kill Aleksei - although I do wonder if she's tough enough to actually go through with slitting the throat of someone who looks/seems like her brother? (well we know that aleksei has to survive bc lanis visions ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Wooooooow!! It's finally out!! :D :D
I've been keeping track of this series because I absolutely LOVED it!! Thanks for updating the story, I'll download it right away!
One thing I really love about this story is that the world where the characters live in was so unique! The art is also astonishing!

And most of all, I'm actually waiting for the time when Lanis's foretelling comes true where the ice king called "Ash" melts down and becomes Lanis's husband. Hehehe :lol: :lol:

YAY :D
So happy to hear the story is almost done!~
Because I playeed the first two eps and told myself I would wait until it's done then I will play it all. I can't handle being hanged in the middle of a story. And I still remember this story was SO so so catching

Thanks so much for reading and dropping in some lovely and encouraging comments everyone. :D I appreciate and cherish each and every one!
I've even had quite a few coffees donated to me over the past few weeks, so I'm totally stoked!!!

I'm getting a bit antsy to start writing for chapter 6, and it's all about Ash. (AND Lanis XD) Huzzah for having a breather chapter and time for some character development!

Seriously, the cliffhangers are getting worse and worse :D . I am so stocked for chapter 6. Can I praise you for including things like
gene modification, biological warfare and secret governmental bio-engineering in your KN?
Because that's just awesome and unusual for a KN or VN.

Anyway, the new backgrounds fits the
outdated underground base look
.
