~Become the hero or villain of your own fairytale in this fantasy otome visual novel~
DEMO | DEV BLOG (updated most frequently) | LAST LSF POST
Ever since your father died searching for the mermaids' treasure, you've sworn to find it yourself. Becoming a pirate was the best way of accomplishing that goal...until your crew dumped you overboard during a huge storm.
Miraculously, you are saved and find a sorcerer who will make you a magical contract - with a catch. He'll transform you into a mermaid to grab the treasure, if you bring him a red vial from the mermaids. If you fail, you'll be turned into a lobster.
Now, you have six days before the spell ends. Will you become rich beyond your wildest dreams? Fail the contract and become lobster bisque? Perhaps you'll fall in love with a mermaid prince or sorcerer...or corrupt them with your evil pirate ways.
The Pirate Mermaid is a fantasy otome game with many different choices and possibilities. You could become a legendary pirate, mermaid queen, sorceress, or (heaven forbid) lobster dinner. Your actions may make the other characters into your friends or lovers...or perhaps victims and slaves.
The game contains:
- 340,000+ words of content
- 3+ character routes with completely different stories
- a karma (good/evil) meter that changes the game based on your decisions
- 20+ endings determined by route and karma
- animated CGs, backgrounds, and chibi scenes
- partial voice acting in both English and Japanese
- galleries for achievements, art, music, and replayable scenes

All of the special features (animations, partial voice acting, galleries, hints, etc.) are included, so please try it out! Comments, questions, and feedback are all welcome.
The Protagonist (nameable)
A brave, stubborn girl (you decide her name!) who became a pirate to find the treasure from her father’s stories. Her favorite things are fighting and money. Your decisions will determine whether she matures into a better person or turns truly evil.
A shy, gentle merman who saved the protagonist from a storm. Though most mermaids hate humans, Mikali is oddly fascinated by them. (Not so) secretly the crown prince of Merrica, the biggest mermaid kingdom in all seven seas.
A magician who lives alone on an island of golden sand. He transforms the protagonist into a mermaid in exchange for a mysterious red vial. Though cold and snarky at first, he may warm up over time.
A young merman who appears to be connected to the royals. But don’t expect him to be Prince Charming. Malik has a sadistic streak and enjoys giving everyone a hard time - especially the protagonist.
The protagonist's greedy (but beloved?) parrot who is always getting into trouble. He turns into a “merbird” after a magical mishap involving his shiny object obsession.
A sweet young mer-maid who works at the palace and may befriend the protagonist. Mimi is surprisingly clumsy for a royal servant. She’s constantly worried about getting fed to the tiger sharks by the head butler.
