Announcing Our Final Moments, Afterthought Studios' current work-in-progress! Inspired by the extremely popular Katawa Shoujo by Four Leaf Studios as well as several real-life incidents, Our Final Moments is a visual novel with the intent of hoping that by the end of it, our readers will be able to look at the very definition of life and willpower in a different light.

Questions:
What regarding Our Final Moments do you find appealing at the moment, with regards to story?
How instrumental is music to you when reading a visual novel?

Afterthought Studios are a group of visual novel enthusiasts from around the world who came together in hopes of creating a story worth being retold and re-read.

Our website is a work-in-progress.

In a fictitious area of Japan lies a little town that's completely unremarkable: there's a school, a hospital, a grocery store, a small cinema, and everything else one might find in such a place—that is, except for the high fences, volunteer guards, and residents with substantial medical experience.

This is Kenkou Village, a hospice for people with chronic, and often terminal, health conditions that require frequent hospital visits. Many of the residents are young adults. It was created to make them as comfortable as possible while also restoring some sense of normalcy to their daily lives. But what is “normal,” exactly, when you're constantly aware of your own mortality?

What regarding Our Final Moments do you find appealing at the moment, with regards to story?
--I'm loving the art so far, and the plot intrigues me. I can't wait to see how the inspiration works its influences into the story.

How instrumental is music to you when reading a visual novel?
--Very instrumental, at least to me. I depend on music to interpret the mood of different scenes.
