Heart Fragment is an upcoming otome (romance) fantasy VN.
With 18 planned endings and tons of choices to make along the way to bring you to your ending, the game's outcome is in your hands.
Take on the role of the protagonist as her life takes a strange turn after discovering a secret hidden from her for many years - that she may be something other than human.
Will you lead her to a happy future, or to disaster?
Years into our future and years into the game's past, scientists attempted an experiment with one particular goal in mind - to create a drug that would force human evolution to its next step.
The experiment succeeded. Those the first human test was completed on gained powers beyond their wildest imaginations.
Increased mental capacity. Telekinesis. Telepathy. Super strength.
But no success story can happen without it's downfalls, and an unforeseen side effect occurred. They began to lose their humanity.
It only happened in short bursts, but when it did, together with their new found powers, they became extremely dangerous.
And so they were euthanized, their lives ended as humanely as possible, and the experiment was marked a failure. The risks were too great to continue any further.
But one man - the lead scientist of the project - escaped. Desperate for his life's work not to go unnoticed he created one last version of the drug, in an attempt to remove the side effects.
Seemingly, it worked. However, with the results of the last experiment clear, this scientist too was considered a danger. He fled into hiding with his family.
The man was never found, and with complete silence from him perhaps proving him to have kept his sanity, eventually the search was called off. The failed experiment was called to a close and buried.
Years later, mysterious accident after accident has led to the death of both the scientist and all members of his family.
Only one remains; his great granddaughter, protected since birth by a small group among the last of those that still know about the experiment, and from whom the secret of her past has been kept for years.
But she's about to find out...

XANI - PROTAGONIST
Xani (name can be changed to whatever you choose) is the protagonist of the story.
Though kind-hearted at her core, the game's protagonist is hard to approach and get along with due to her self-isolating nature.
That paired with her sharp-tongue and cynical view of life has put her into a bubble that is hard to break into for anyone who is genuinely interested in becoming close to her.
From the moment you step into her shoes, you will begin to shape her life and personality. Will you find happiness, friendship, and love? Or will your path be plagued with hardships?
Those choices are in your hands.
When you first discover the secrets of your family, Kay is the first ally to appear.
Though blind, he has an incredible memory and sharp sense of hearing that helps him maneuver through familiar places with the same ease as someone with seeing.
He seems to be a sweet and energetic boy, who is there for you when you need him, but there are times when he goes abnormally quiet...
Just who exactly is he?
"I am just a mistake."
When you and Clive first meet, that is part of how he introduces himself.
In a lot of ways, Clive reminds you of your self... You share the same cynical view of the world, the same sharp-tongue, and the same bad attitude.
However, the mysterious circumstances in which he enters the story might make you question his motives.
Is he an ally, or an enemy?
Lana is a Japanese trans girl in her twenties, but her young appearance often has people mistaking her as being her teens.
She certainly knows how to be mature when times call for it, but overall she still retains most of her personality traits from her teen days.
She loves unique hair colors and body piercings and when she's alone she enjoys spending her days drinking beer and playing video games.
Lana knew you when you were a child, and was your regular babysitter for three years. The two of you were separated after the death of your mother, but you meet again with a message that Lana is "someone you can trust."
How much does she know?
Always the happy-go-luck optimist, Shannon proves as your childhood best friend that opposites do attract.
Bubbly, sweet, and always seeming to have a smile on her face, this kind girl can be overwhelming and even annoying to times to someone with a glass-half-empty viewpoint clouding their judgement.
At the worst of times, however, Shannon's big smile seems to have a healing effect.
She is always there for her friends and loved ones, no matter how grim the situation may be.
"No matter what you do, you need to stay away from Jasper. Don't ever trust him."
You've been warned about him. You know that somehow, for some reason, he is pursuing you. You know that if he finds you, you'll be dead.
...Right? That's what you've been told. Will you believe it? Will you avoid him?
Or will your curiosity get the better of you...?
A mystery that will only be solved by playing the game...
GUI design done by Anne & Potouto.
Casper Swann is a 21 year old writer who has been working on "Heart Fragment" for 9 years.
The story began as a short tragedy they wrote when they were 12, and since then it has expanded with new ending ideas they came up with, new characters, and new ways to make the story great.
Eventually with all the endings they came up with, they decided to make "Heart Fragment" into a visual novel where the player's choices influence the outcome.

Please keep in mind that at the moment I am funding this game entire on my own, and as a disabled person unable to work I do not have unlimited funds.
My main goal right now is to get enough of the game done to be able to link to the Kickstarter for the game, because as it is I am struggling to keep within my budget.
