After much toil, I present to you my latest project!

General Info:

Title: Essence Hunt
Genre: Fantasy
Pairings: BxB

Plot:

While out hunting, Shugo ignores his village's superstitions and kills a deer on sacred ground. This angers a powerful nature spirit and she curses him, telling Shugo that he must return what he stole within three days or he'll die. That's easier said than done however since returning the deer's soul isn't exactly in the realm of human expertise. Luckily, he's not completely on his own. A fox spirit named Kei has agreed to help him out on a whim. Can the two catch the deer's spirit and return it to its body before the three days are up? And is Shugo's new travelling companion even trustworthy in the first place?

For (just a wee bit) more info you can visit the wip topic here: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=38775

Features:

- 25,000+ words
- 6 endings (12 if you include variatons)
- It's free!

And now, here's the link to the itch.io page where you can download it:
https://silverhyena.itch.io/essence-hunt

Ending Guide (Possible Spoilers)

Notes:
- To get the romantic (A) endings, kiss Kei when you're at the hotsprings. Otherwise you'll get the friendship (B) endings. Simple enough, yeah?
- The choice to spare or kill the spirits on the short path doesn't do anything besides change up the text a bit. (This is why you should really plan out your games and not write them as you go like I do... Learn from my mistakes!)

1A - take the short path, the hunter is a girl, give it a happy ending, kiss Kei
1B - take the short path, the hunter is a girl, give it a happy ending, don't kiss Kei
2A - take the short path, the hunter is a girl, give it a horrible ending, kiss Kei
2B - take the short path, the hunter is a girl, give it a horrible ending, don't kiss Kei
3A - take the short path, the hunter is an old man, kiss Kei
3B - take the short path, the hunter is an old man, don't kiss Kei
4A - take the long path, sit in the middle of the crowd, tell Oubu you're together, kiss Kei
4B - take the long path, sit in the middle of the crowd, tell Oubu you're together, don't kiss Kei
5A - take the long path, sit away from the crowd, tell Oubu you'd like that, kiss Kei
5B - take the long path, sit away from the crowd, tell Oubu you'd like that, don't kiss Kei
6A - take the long path, sit in the middle of the crowd, Kei is your guide, Kei might get bored, kiss Kei
6B - take the long path, sit in the middle of the crowd, Kei is your guide, Kei might get bored, don't kiss Kei

OMG I didn't even had time to comment on your other post and you already finished the game!
I really liked 'Sacred Sand' so I was looking forward to this game too, congrats on the release!!
I'm downloading it now, once I get to one of the endings I'll comeback and tell you what I thought about it ^^ (or I'll wait till I get all 6-12 endings xD)

I got all the endings for the long path, and what can I say? I adore how cute is this story! Shugo and Kei are just adorable!

I like how colorful and clean the art style is, and although the story is simple there're moments like the festival that are simply beautiful. The side characters are also enjoyable, and I liked a lot that you could have a romantic end and a friendship end, both of them equally good.
