Story:

In a world called Ehratem, there is a school. That school teaches teens and young adults and prepares them for their future jobs.
You are an exchange student, from another continent. You feel awkward and ill-fitting. One night, you decide to hack into the school's transmission nets and uncover more than expected. Will you be able to find romance, uncover the mystery and save the day?

Main Characters:

(Default Name) Shin Kai

Image

The main character, a freshman. Skilled in electronics and robotics. From a country in another continent, he/she feels at odds with her new acquaintances. Amazed by the school's inter student communication system, Shin decides to hack into it in order to find out who King exactly is but ends up finding a loose thread in the net...

King Hearts

A strange guy. He is apparently a junior. King is the first student Shin meets. He is slightly bothersome and his demeanor leads to hacking the system. He doesn't seem to be fully human but it's impossible to know what he really is. Has a fondness for playing games.

Axel Davies

Axel is in Level E Engeneering, same as Shin. He drives around campus in a mini steam scooter he built himself. Axel is very cheerful and friendly, but his creations often enrage the teachers. Despite his bright personality he is often alone.

Jonas Summers

Image

Jonas is a senior who works in the library during lunch. He is generally quiet. When he speaks it's usually to snark at someone. Although he knows nothing about hacking or electronics, he is interested in Shin's quest. He seems to be popular with girls.

Liz Summers

Image

Jonas's younger sister. Unlike her brother she is chirpy and never seems to shut up. On the other hand, she snarks even more. Liz seems to be slightly manipulative. She is a freshman and the star of the swim team.

Emily Robertson

Image

Emily is a senior who is a very bohemian artist. As soon as she learns of illegal endeavors she jumps in. She seems to be hiding something. She is obsessed with her favorite manga. She is a sort of demon.

Sarah Jones

Image

The first person you meet. A cat girl teacher who is only slightly older than her students. Sarah is also from another continent and wants to help Shin but her own awkwardness and shyness stands in the way. Missing a part of her right ear, she seems to be uncomfortable talking about it.

Other Characters:

Mr. Williams

Head of the Machine Department. He's a laid back guy who "takes care" of the net. He actually spends most of his time sleeping as he only teaches Level SS Electronics.

Juri

The librarian. She usually leaves everything to Jonas.

Junta

A friend of Jonas. He is the son of a rich family and is a bit spoiled.

Headmaster Faulkner

The headmaster of the school, Faulkner is a genius engineer.

Mika and Geenie

Liz's friends. They always hang out together.

Ah, well, I'm doing a sort of comic style so I thought the wobbliness looked good but maybe it's too much. I'll tone it a bit down on the next background.


Updated with Shin's pic and some more character info.

No, it's GXB, GXG, BXG or BXB. Any of the romanceable characters are available independent of the MCs gender. You can also go through the game without romancing anyone.
