SYNOPSIS:

Vincent and Raphael have been best friends since childhood. However, when a terrible disease strucked the lands, Vincent's whole family got infected. His parents are dead, and he's on his deathbed. When Raphael got the news of the disease, he momentarily returned from his inspiration-seeking travels, and hoped to nurse his friend to health. Yet, Vincent, fully knowing his time is coming to an end, asks Raphael for a painting, that turns out to be a portal to another dimension.

Vincent got more than he asked for. A second chance.

...Nothing comes without a price, though.
CHARACTERS:
Image
Vincent
AKA Vin or Vinny. The sick kid whose future collapsed with the disease's spread. He looks up to Raphael, and supports his artist career.
Image
Raphael
AKA Rafe. The artist and best friend of Vin's. Loves the kid to death and seeing him in this state and not being able to help him makes him feel entirely useless and hopeless.
Image
Rarik
Your mouse companion. His biggest dream is to have the peace and quiet he obviously deserves..
Image
Nariri
Your raccoon companion. A fun-loving and optimistic girl, who loves being around other...people? Animals?
THE FEATURES
3 endings
~8 cgs
~8 lovingly and painfully made bgs
A lot of 'flavour' choices (no impact for the story but might give you some interesting character info)
About
Hello and welcome to my first solo VN! It's going to be a rollercoast ride for me (and maybe for you with feelings?) - while having no prior knowledge whatsoever with programming, I decided to pull myself together and, quoting anime protagonists, follow my dreams! And here we are. This is meant to be a rather short, exercise story, to get more in depth with Renpy programming. Hence some explanations might be omitted, and characters won't get a full backstory revealed. I will make a followup in the future, with more content. Still, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I'm enjoying making it!

This idea is so adorable! The concept, is darker than you'd expect, but the character designs give it such a loving feel! I really hope Vinny can live a long and healthy life in this new world! I absolutely love that the main characters are named after artists! (I'm guessing Van Gogh and Renaissance Raphael??)

I'm really excited for this project! Good luck!
(If you need any help, feel free to ask me on twitter too! though i am just a novice, like you haha!)

Thank you!! :D I tried to make them all loveable sillybums, even the grumpy Rarik!
Ah, but will he live, and if so, will it be long? ;)
THANK YOU I might ask for help/playtesting my game ;u;

Hey, thanks! I want to finish making this within a month, let's pray it happens (the only hardship for me now is programming h-haha) :)

2nd choice is hovered (I might change some things by the time the game is released though)

Next time I'll try to post some bgs :')

Ooh, that promotional image grabs my attention almost instantly. It's so dark and haunting and immediately raises my curiosity. I love fantasy and, with it, inter-dimension travels. It's chock full of possibilities, and I can't wait to see where you take this story.

Your list of characters is already interesting to me, especially the animal ones. Plus, Vincent has orange hair and freckles like my Chase (as I'm sure you know!), so how can I not like him? ;) I have a feeling they would get along. Unless, of course, there's more to Vincent than meets the eye.

That first bg is beautiful. I love the colors. I'm looking forward to seeing the variations.

Good luck, Oktolio! You know I'm in your corner.

Thank you!! This is actually a main menu screen too, but I miiight change it...but then again, I do love the darkness about it. Ooops.
I'll put up updated character profile soon-ish with more information, so please look forward to it :D

Thanks again DG ;u; I'll do my best!

Ooops the mediafire links seem to be broken, sorry about that ;_; I fixed the first post at least.
Good news is the writing is in full motion! I'll try to post some sneak peeks in a few days!
