Snowdrop: Winter themed GxB [Demo Available: 8.27.18]

Snowdrop is a Christmas themed otome visual novel with one romance-able character and multiple endings.


Genre: Slice of Life, Drama, Romance
Word Count: Estimated 40,000 to 50,000 words at completion

Snowdrops are the first flowers of the year to bloom. Their blossoming signifies the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Heat radiates from the snowdrop itself allowing the flower to melt the snow around it. Despite the harsh odds stacked against it, the snowdrop is able to flourish by creating an environment that it can thrive in. It is for this reason that the snowdrop is a symbol of hope. The dark times will end and, in their place, unmistakable warmth.



The memory of Lilah’s older brother plagues her and her mother during the Holiday season much more than any other time of the year. To escape the painful memories and growing silence, Lilah decides to work at her sister-in-law’s Inn for a few months. What she finds is certainly a distraction, but definitely not what she was expecting. World famous singer and Pop Star of the Year, Archer Lane, decides to rent out the entire Red Turtleneck Inn for the month. Its humble atmosphere and location is the perfect place for him to hide for the holidays and get some song writing done. Or, so he thinks.



The two strong-minded individuals don’t really account for each other in their plans, and instantly butt heads. When they’re forced to face what truly matters to them, will it bring them together or pull them further apart? Can these two seemingly lost individuals find a way to last the entire month and come out in one piece?

Lilah Scott
Lilah is the main character. Personality wise, Lilah is a determined individual. If you're dishonest and rude, she'll be apt to reciprocate. Though, she is loyal to her core. Once she's on your side, it's for life.

Image
Archer Lane

Archer became a pop star at the age of 16. Now, at the age of 24 he is an accomplished singer and song writer. All he wants to do is share his music, but the audience is fickle. Having adapted to the lifestyle of the rich and famous, Archer has come to expect a certain level of respect and adoration. Sometimes, this comes off as him being rude when you don’t grovel at his feet.

But deep deep down, there is still the man who wants to share his passion with the world. Are you willing to dig that far for this self centered jerk?

Hear Archer's voice here: https://tinyurl.com/y6w2qqml

Image
Anjali Yasin/Scott
Of Pakistani descent, Anjali is Lilah's sister in law. She owns the Red Turtleneck Inn that Lilah will be working in. Her husband (Lilah's older brother, Craig Scott) has passed away, and because of it, Anjali has lived an isolated life in the small town of Riversone. Her story is much more than what meets the eye.

I have a screenshot to share:

This isn't a final look. The font is different in the final version, and the text is slightly bigger :D

I believe you have the wrong download link listed- it's just a link to a deviantART account rather than an Itch.io account or anywhere to download it.

Ah! You're right. Thanks for noticing! I copied the html form from my other thread so that I could format it correctly and forgot to change the link >_<

It's all fixed now.
