Re: Nova:Synthesis Creaturum[Fantasy|Comedy|Romance]DEMO UP!

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. :)
Thank you so much for taking the time to play the demo and giving us some feedback! >.< Glad that you enjoyed what we've presented so far. All the art, music, and voice acting for the full game so far are definitely fantastic as well, and I hope that I (the writer of this project!) can make the story develop well enough. Our team is going to continue working hard so that we can release the finished version soon. :D

Tried out the demo.

The artwork is beautiful and this VN has a professional look to it.
The music suited it.
Writing is well done (no obvious typos). I don't know if it's because of the voice acting, but for something written in 1st person I felt I couldn't immerse myself in the character as much as I would have liked - something kept throwing me out; but this may just be me (wouldn't suggest you worry about it unless someone else says something).

Thank you for playing through the demo and giving some feedback!

I would have to agree that the voice acting may be a factor that can hinder fully stepping into the character--there are times where it's more like you can be listening to a first person account rather than getting into the character's mind, but this will vary among people. Voice acting can be turned off, so if you ever want to try the full version when it's out, having no voice for the main character may change things. It's something I never quite regarded, so good to know your opinion on how you felt on the POV and immersing yourself! Thanks again!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've updated this page, but the Nova team has been more frequently updating our other social media pages. If you want to see even more sneak peaks/previews, follow us from there (links on first post of this thread). We'll also post status updates about how far along we've come in making the VN. We're hoping the VN will come out by the end of 2016 or early 2017.

I've updated a lot of new facial expressions, a new CG, and also a new character preview! The embed YouTube video of our trailer also didn't seem to show up, so I uploaded a thumbnail that'll link to it instead.

Its been a long time since I last checked in with this thread. I'm glad to see things are still moving. I just played the demo, and I'm fairly intrigued by the protagonist's viewpoints, and interested in what comes next.
