The king is having a huge birthday celebration! Five days of dancing, festivals, and drinking, culminating in a grand masquerade ball. It just so happens that Rivian Varrison, the introverted son of a famous nobleman, is forced to attend this giant event by his father. By chance, or maybe something more deliberate, he runs into a host of colorful and shady characters, all with their own stories to tell. But when a sudden and mysterious crime happens on the second day of the celebration, Rivian finds himself thrown into the middle of it, and has to discover the truth behind what really happened -- and who the people around him really are.

Was pleased to see this was out as I enjoyed playing 'Requiescence'.
So far I've died once but I am enjoying it [like your backgrounds this time and the character art is lovely]. Took me a while to get use to Rivian's voice but Franz's has that deep sexy tone to it. [He can whisper sweet nothings in my ear anytime].
My favourites are usually the long-haired guys, but Linnaeus is such a pain (at least initially - I haven't tried to persue him yet - hopefully he'll loosen up a bit and turn into a darling).
Great writing (something I really liked about Requiescence too).
This is an amazing game. Rivian's voice was kind of off putting at first and initially Arden also annoyed me so much that I didn't want to play his route, but 15 minutes in and I was hooked. Played through all the routes and Franz is definitely my favorite. I wasn't expecting to like either Arden or Linnaeus, but I actually did enjoy their routes and
the rather unexpected one.
I really liked the voice acting too (normally I just turn it off because it doesn't suit the characters imo) and I really liked the fact that each route had a different plot to it rather than me having to endure the same main plot over and over again.
I'll definitely follow AG's future game developments
@Lydwine -- Very happy to hear that! You should share your thoughts with us after playing~
@Illuminate -- Thanks! <3 It was great hearing from you all the way back in the early stages of dev ^^ (btw, been playing Adam recently and loving it)
@Arinasaur -- Thank you so much for your kind words! I know English VA is very often just a hit-or-miss and can conflict with how we imagine characters inside our heads. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it And that you liked the route branching too! (I hate having to replay a lot of common route stuff myself) I hope you stick around Lemmasoft by the way, there're a lot of other great games on here that you should check out~
Haha definitely Dovah, actually I remember thinking we announced ChessofBlades and Let'sMEATAdam around the same time oh so long ago lol. Both BxB, both murder mysteries. I'm really excited to see what you come up with next. <3
And Im glad you are loving LMA so far!!! btw, your avatar...I could be wrong but is that supposed to be Setsuna from LastBlade? (cept with an emoji face)
