He looks rather sly :3
I'm interested to see what sort of personality the writer will give him. He may very well be sly!

Reworked Es' sprite since I've learned how to properly divide a sprite into many pieces.
She also got a new outfit. :3

Felt like practicing female stomachs a bit. Nerina is really the only gal of the group that would stand for wearing so little! Ah but she does love her water.

Finished the demo and I only can say that I want MORE!!!!

I love the sprites they are so full of live and colourful. 10/10 for them, I love them all!!!! But my favorite is Zex, he is so... so XDDDDD I like him! XD

And the story is really really interesting and when I finished the demo I though "WHY!?" Oh! Cruel world.

So can't wait to see this game complete and enjoy all of it.

Zex is definitely a loveable goofball.
Thanks for letting us know that you liked the demo!
I am quite looking forward to refining the CGs we have so far and working on the rest of the game.

A WIP scene with Eric and Kenna.
A could-happen but may not sort of scene I'm doing for fun.

Came back to say that this was probably the best VN (well, a demo) I've played lately. I liked everything: characters, the story, the art... Thank you for all your hard work, and good luck with finishing it))

I've just finished playing the demo. I never expected to like it so much. :D
The art is so unique that I've started to fall in love with it while reading. There are many mysteries surounding the main character and I'm very eager to play the full game to find out the truth. The characters are just too adorable. Each of them have a different personality so I can't pick a favourite one. The dialogue is very well written and there were some parts that made me laugh really loud ( it's 2 am here :oops: ). It would have been epic if the player had the option to choose between beeing a girl or a guy. I would have liked some BxB romance since I'm a yaoi lover and the boys are so cute. :oops:

I enjoyed the demo very much and I can't wait for the full version! :) Good luck!

Awesome! We are working on the trailer right now before we kickstart it, so hopefully it won't be too long until it's done!

New Eric looks adorable. He seems a lot more like a boyish youth made of sunshine >w<

I have to admit that before playing to the demo I wasn't that much interested in this VN. And I was wrong! Because I've played the demo. And then I've played to it again. And again. And again. And again. And again [...]. Okay, I love this game ^^
The demo was long enough for me to enjoy it, I loved every scene, every character, every music, every [...]. Even the main menu is awesome! I especially love the scenes with Es ^^ She's a great character, but Zex, Eric and Peter are also great, so is Nerina, and... Yeah, they are great, all of them. I really like the way it's written, we get into the story really quickly. The characters are really different from one to another, that's so great!! :) I mean, I was always surprised by their acts ^^
Kenna is a great MC, she is strong. Seriously, she is. And that's great ^o^ Thank you for not creating a shy and submissive MC, it would have been too boring, whereas here, she's just so awesome, I really love her!! Most of the time she acted like me in this kind of situations ^^
There are really varied atmospheres, between a "simple" academy atmosphere (as "simple" as a floating academy could be) and Kenna's dark memories.
Probably the best demo I've ever played. Seriously. Please give me more. ;)
Thank you for the demo, it made my day :D Good luck from now onwards, you have my support :)

I'm glad the characters were able to win you over. I will be updating the demo fairly soon, with new art for a handful of things, as well as a trailer for the game.
Thank you for the support!

Here's some animated Galahad for fun.
