I've seen you posting about this on Tumblr, it's awesome to see it coming together!

also why would you do this to me. the poor children

• What are you expecting from the story?: To cry probably.
• Who sticks out to you in a good way so far?: Lu, definitely. He seems like the type to die first if this was a horror movie, so naturally I'm planning on protecting him with everything I've got.
• Who are you most okay with dying so far?: NO

@Zelan
Thank you so much for answering our questions! Haha, I'm sorry to the poor children. They really drew the short straw when it came to plot-lines in our games.

Lu does have a tough time of it. He could definitely use some protection.

We've made a lot of progress this month on the script and the artists and the composer are ready to come back to add more content to LoV once the KS is over. We're in the last 48 hours of that now!

This looks really interesting! The updates are really exciting, looking forward to see how this project turns out.

• What are you expecting from the story?
Hmm... something dark and mysterious? I like themes like that so I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
• Who sticks out to you in a good way so far?
The guide. Simply because I like his character design, haha.
• Who are you most okay with dying so far?
Can't really say. I'll have to play the demo to get to know them better (which I haven't done yet).

Just checked out your kickstarter campaign and I'm glad that you guys have already reached your goal!
All the best!

@AsHLeX
Thank for sharing your thoughts! It's nice to see someone having an interest in the project. Haha, I'm glad you like the guide's design. His people skills leave a bit to be desired, but at least he's got that going on for him.

The Lake of Voices demo has been updated to include full voice acting, as well as a couple small improvements and error fixes. It still stops at the same point as the original, though. There isn't any new script based content. If you haven't given the game a go or you have but are still curious about how the voices came together, please do give the demo a download! I really hope you'll enjoy it.

Important Notice:
If you played the old version of the demo your saves will not work in this newer demo or the finished game. To delete old saves you can simply save over the slots with new data or hover over the spot with your cursor and hit the 'delete' key on your keyboard.


And a very big thanks to the wonderful VA cast! The game wouldn't have been the same without them.

Lake of Voices is basically complete! We're at a point where we're just double checking for errors. This game will be available for free on PCs before the end of the month! I hope you're excited to see people drown horribly over and over, haha.

Right now we're running a small giveaway on tumblr to gain access to LoV two weeks early. You can check that out here~

Wanted to say I tried out the demo and absolutely loved it! The atmosphere you've created is compelling and the visuals evoke a mysterious, ethereal quality that really suits the VN. Special shout-out to Kikka and the Guide's voice actors for doing a fantastic job of setting the scene!

Will keep an eye out for the full release on Steam. :)

Since there are many routes across the lake, is there going to be an official guide available? (... so to speak?)

@papillon

Haha, yes we do hope to have some kind of guide of our own for this game. It's been a bit hard to come up with a way to structure it, though.
