We are currently in need of a programmer with basic to intermediate coding abilities in Python using Ren'Py.

You don't need to have much experience, but showing me examples of past works you've done is quite fine! Since this visual novel is a non-commercial one, you won't get paid for your services.

If you're interested, you can PM me here or send me an email at thestringsofgold@gmail.com. Thanks for your time!~

This is the first Otome game I think I've found myself excited for. Guess the main character's adorableness doesn't hurt. XD

Aw, thank you! X3 The main character is pretty adorble, and the rest of the characters are also great~

#37 Post by thestringsofgold » Sun Mar 01, 2015 10:58 pm

Hello everyone! It's been a while, but we have some exciting announcements to make (and images to show as well).

We're currently holding voice over castings for Merona, our female MC! If you know anyone with a suitable voice, willing to audition, please share with them this link to the rules: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 59&t=30690

We will also be updating everyone with a monthly post on our project status, including an official character sprite preview. Since you've all seen Merona so much, we've decided to reveal another character for you this March--get the first look at Cimaria Kinoten!

Nova Status Update (#2)

It may be April Fool’s Day, but this Status Update definitely is not a joke! So far, we have been continuing to steadily work at Nova, progressing little by little. We have some new VAs as well: Mel Gorsha will voice Merona, and Rachael Messer will voice Cimaria! Our demo is very close to being finished as well (for real this time!), so look out for an update on that in the near future…

Nova Status Update (#3)

Ecstatic to bring everyone the May update today! We have made quite a bit of progress in these past few weeks, so we’re excited to share what’s been done. Expect to see more things from us more often. We will start doing a sort of mini update that’ll show some of our CGs and WIPs, every half-month!

Be on the look out for a big announcement coming up in the next few days as well… ;3

As usual, here is a new sprite preview.

W-O-W! The demo was fantastic. I'm hooked.

I love how dynamic the background is, especially the falling leaves in the beginning of the game. That, and the clouds rolling in the background, was very relaxing to look at, as if I was walking in the forest with Merona herself. Overall, art is very aesthetically pleasing. Great job!

Merona is such an interesting character, absolutely cute and precious in an atypical way. She's lightly philosophical and her thoughts brim with whimsicality, and though she's obviously passionate about her work, she still procrastinates. This reminds me of myself, made especially worse by the fact that I'm a science person who daydreams about being a mage. xD

The music is high-quality and fits the mood of the scenes very well. The voice acting was impressive! I have a habit of just reading stories quickly through, but Merona has a lovely voice, so I purposefully slowed down to enjoy her voice talent. A+ job! Excellent!

The writing flowed very well, and I didn't notice any major spelling or grammatical errors. Merona already has me hooked, and I'm really curious about how her character and the plot with develop. The world is a place that I personally would love to learn more about and explore!

I'm am excited for the full release! You have a fan in me. :)
