TUMBLR || DEVIANTART || (website pending)
New Moon Café is a small solo BL project in a traditional visual-novel format (where your choices change the outcome of the story) . It follows the stories of Nemu’s, creatures which are the manifestation of human dreams / desires. They wander the earth in search of the one human who's dream they were created from. At the center of it all is New Moon Café, which seems to draw all manner of creatures and humans~( ; v ; I don't want to give away too much of the story here haha).
The game is divided into short story ARCS, each of which will be released separately, with one over-arching common metaplot storyline. More arcs may possibly be added as we go o v o// This topic is made specifically for The Nightingale Arc (which will be released first to test the waters)
With the help of some extremely generous (currently secret) peeps, the project will also hopefully feature an OST, full voicing, and all original sounds ♥ The goal is to create a BL game with substance and fallible, real characters (but still yummy graphics) that is FREE and available to everyone. While I like harem games, the goal of the game isn't to try to pair Clovis with everyone (lol).

1) Would you want an option in the game to turn off any +18 nsfw content?
2) Any comments/critiques/etc? Does the premise sound like something you'd be interested in? ; v ;
3) Specific thoughts on the GUI so far?
I'm also a complete newb at this. Never made a game before XD So I'm learning a lot haha. Any advice is also welcome
