UPDATE: We have published our first full version! See the completed project thread here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=50384

For years now, monsters have been a growing problem in Diolacov Kingdom.
Their origin and behavior are a mystery, and a solution to control them has yet to be found.
One day in the forest, novice magic student Merona encounters a monster while collecting plant life for study.
At a crucial moment, she somehow manages to save herself by turning the monster into an innocent animal!
Merona is then sent on a journey by her academy with a team of companions to travel over various towns
to discover more about monsters and how she can transform them.
What lies ahead is much more than what everyone had expected.

Thank you very much. :3 I'm very happy to hear you say that it sounds like it'd be commercial and that it has promise. I'm also glad it's free so that more people would be able to play it, because who doesn't love a free game (at least one that's decent XD)? I also love Merona's design; the artists are very talented people. ^^ If you're really more interested on what will be in it, then I suggest you look at our Tumblr WIP blog more because I'll be mostly posting previews/updates there. Once again, thanks and have a nice day~

Hi, I am one of the artist's here, pleased to meet you. :3
Yes, it will partly be Otome, as you will have the choice to bond with two of your companions. Nova mainly focuses on the fantasy part though, so it is a bit different than usual Otome games where one mainly pursues their love interest. You can end up without partner as well depending on your choices.

Judging from the art style of the main character, this looks like it'll be a great looking game. :)
How many fanboys does it take to change a lightbulb?

Ten. One to screw it in and nine to argue about how the old one was so much better.

We're going to hold auditions for voice acting! I'll post a thread about it in a few days that'll contain all the info needed.

This project sounds promising. :D

Not sure if you have also checked out the Voice Acting Alliance yet? I believe that's where a few other VNs have found their voice actors. Putting a thread for your audition could be helpful!
