About the Game

Created and developed by Paper Star Studios, Out of Sync is the first visual novel released for Sparkler Monthly. It'll be available to play for free, with a paid adult expansion in the works. The visual novel is part of Sparkler Monthly's Year 4 line-up.

Summary
Taisei, a vocalist in the boy band 4LIGHT, is known for his poppy, electric stage persona. But that persona is just a mask to cover one major insecurity of his; he only started singing to keep up with his childhood friend, Shou. When both boys were scouted in high school, they began to drift apart, and Taisei has watched Shou -- with his superior voice but weaker stage presence -- flounder in his own band. Taisei hates that he has the career his best friend deserves.

Suffocated by the restrictive life of a pop idol he never truly wanted, Taisei tries to reconnect with Shou...only to find that Shou has also changed under the glitz and lights of the stage. Taisei isn't sure what to think of this new Shou... At least, until he kisses him.

Release Date
Summer 2016

Hello everyone! We'll be updating this thread as the assets come together over the next few weeks. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us. Twitter updates will be tagged #OutOfSyncVN for those interested! Otherwise, we'll update here.

Also, note to mods, I believe this falls within the guidelines about the KS links, since this game isn't being Kickstarted, it's simply part of another thing. Let me know if this is an issue, thanks!

Here's a WIP of one of the event images! Sprites are getting colored right now so I hope to get to show those off soon.

This looks really cute so far! It's still early on, so I can't say much, but I really like the concept so far. Taisei seems like a very relateable character and I'm excited to see more of him. I'm pretty into singing and music too, so I'm pretty interested in the other parts of the story as well. Good luck! :)

Updating with a background image our artists are working on!

This is the photo shoot, where our boys end up spending a lot of their time for this assignment.

Thanks for your interest! I've personally had a lot of fun writing and developing Taisei, so I hope you enjoy him when this is all done :D

I'm hoping to return with more WIP shots soon~

Added some silly bios to the OP and I have some GUI previews! The CG Gallery is very much a WIP (also, thank you to Leon for the code) and currently using images from our first game NAOMI for testing, but it exists! And it works!

Also featuring my 5 minute start menu, subject to change.

Aiming for an August release!
