Oh thanks. 8D
Well, I'm a big fan of anything different and BL/horror is a combo I haven't seen in a visual novel yet. 8D
Er, well, there's probably some pro Japanese things, but nothing around here. :3 Or at least, not that I've seen. o.o Unless someone's holding out on me.

Anyway, good luck! :D

Thank you!!
Well actually Water's Edge was inspired mostly by a BL horror (kind of xD) novel, Okizari no Tenshi by Yakou Hana. We're trying to make the atmosphere similar to Nitro+Chiral's BL guro/horror game Sweet Pool, though without the explicit content. It was only /inspired/ though, we're trying hard not to end up copying ideas >< It's hard because it's our first game, hehe.

@HigurashiKira: Thanks! It's nice that a lot of people are interested in the premise *_* We didn't think it would be that well-received, lol x)

@Camille: /returns brofist Thank you for the support!

We're planning to release a demo within the month, but we're not sure if it's advisable because none of the backgrounds are complete yet... :C

@Boniae: Heh, thanks!

We're actually wondering if anyone would want to play the demo *even if* it had no backgrounds, because we're struggling with background art at the moment (we don't even have placeholders).

Just a screenshot of what the title screen looks like so far. It will definitely be redone (though the same concept), lol it was a 30-minute paint job ><

I really like the simple but well rendered art and the Ishikawa reminds me a character plucked from a Suzuki Tsuta manga. I didn't realize that there a lot of other people like me who really like BL and Horror. Really good yaoi horror is almost impossible to find. (The best example I've ever read as been Notpia by Osada Not) I'm excited for this one.

We've searched a few free sites but none of them really have the look we're trying to go for, even after running everything through a couple of filters (I don't even think I was supposed to do that xD;). Also there were sizing issues since most of the free ones we've found are made for smaller resolution games, but ours is 1024x768 so they'll be kinda low quality. :<

And thanks for the feedback! x3 We really hope to make a game that people will enjoy.
