Wow, the art for this visual novel looks so cute and professional! And the GUI is pretty clever~

I'm not really a fan of BxG games, so I don't think I'll be playing this one especially if it's R18 ;; but this does look very very promising. To be honest, though I think it's good to have, originality is slightly overrated these days. I don't mind cliched premises (as long as it is not unrealistic) as long as the story is executed in an original way. As long as there is no blatant copying of other people's work, I'm all for it.

Anyways, all the best for A+ Switch! I'll be rooting for you!

Thank you very much ^-^

Oh, the scenes can be turned off in the options menu, because I know that a lot of people don't want to see that kind of stuff. ^-^

Yeah, I agree. Plus it's kinda hard to be original these days anyway xDDD


Thank you again!!! ; u ;

Also cause I'm nosey and can't help myself as a former Oncology student, but what sort of eye cancer did the little sister have? Also it's probably better to call it ocular cancer. Please don't call me out for being picky ;~;
Yes, it's going to have some really dark parts in it depending on the player's in game choices. ^-^ I was actually debating on whether or not to make it dark or not, but I tend to write dark things better than I do happy things.

& She has retinoblastoma, which is really rare for a child over the age of 5 to have. Her cancer had spread to the outer part of her eye, and she had not responded well from treatment. It's definitely a rare case.
Idk if it sounds too unrealistic or not, but it is fiction, so why not. lol.

& alright. xD I shall.
It having dark parts actually makes me really happy XD I know it shouldn't but you know~~

And don't worry, at least it's the most common childhood ocular cancer so it's not that unrealistic :) It happens.

I'm also really happy that this will have, ahem, stuff in it (at least I presume it will?).

And I now see why your kinda rejected my logo XD It really wouldn't have fitted a dark themed story XD

I'm really glad you like the characters. It makes me really happy to see that people are taking interest in this ^-^

xDDDDDD
Yeah, Iori might definitely give a depressing atmosphere throughout some parts of the story, but in all honesty, the reason the protagonist is getting bad grades in school is because of her, she's always on his mind because he's worried about her, and it prevents him from paying attention in his classes. but everyone at school, including his teachers just think he's really stupid. Though they don't know about his sister.

AHHHH, thank you so much!!!! it really means a lot to me!!! ^-^
Yush! Ahhh that's really a lovely plot ;w; I feel like it is really relatable in the emotion aspect, at least I can relate to the protagonist. *gets the tissue boxes ready* ywy/
Also yaaay more characters >u< Can't wait to see more progress >w<!!
Current Project:
The Color of Life, a slice-of-life otome game with a hint of fantasy, dreamworlds...and bunny and kitty boys.

Dark Parts in stories actually make me kinda happy too, I'm not quite sure why xDDD

True, very true. I tried to make it as realistic as possible but at the same time explaining why she couldn't get treated xD

Stuff? o: You mean like r18? Yep, definitely. I'm an ecchi artist, so it's kinda hard for me to write a clean story at times xD Just can't help it. Though, like I said, the scenes will be removable, so people who aren't fond of sexual scenes can turn them off. ^-^

Ohhh!!! Logo, I honestly haven't checked my inbox in a while, I have a whole bunch of messages to still read xD But I just looked at it, and it's really cute!!! But you're right, it doesn't really fit all that well, but I still love it! ^-^

(reads first post again)
Wow, I never thought it would have R-18 content. I'd still play it, though. Now I'm really curious about the event CGs in the game :D

Keep up the good work, looking promising!

I don't think a lot of people expected it too. xD but that's just how I roll. //puts on shades.
Just kidding, but if you feel uncomfortable with r-18 content, there will be an option to remove it in the game ^-^

Thank you so much!!! ^-^/

If you want, I could help you with the details of why she couldn't be treated to help you make it realistic ect :) (what would you know, my year at uni wasn't a total waste lol) I'd also be open to playtesting for you if you'll have me :P

I'm really looking forward to this, random question, but will this be a commercial vn?
