Rikuto is a young man chasing his dream of finding himself a real mermaid. Though he spends the majority of his time running his seaside shop and diving for trinkets and other underwater findings, he's often fantisizing about his late father's stories of the sea. After a large and unexpected storm, Rikuto finds himself living in his fantasy. A beautiful mermaid washes up on the beach of his shop, but it isn't exactly how he imagined it. Being badly injured, Rikuto tries to nurse her back to health without anyone finding out. Will Rikuto be able to let go of what he's found?

I plan to release in spring 2018 after a Kickstarter late winter! This is my first time writing a visual novel while doing all the sprite/CG work and most of the backgrounds, so I thought it would be nice to have a full thread tracking my progress on it.
Please let me know anyone has any thoughts or feedback on it~ I hope you guys will be interested. (*≧▽≦)
This looks really cool! I'm interested in the mermaid vs. siren thing you have going on here. Stories with mermaids usually either don't include sirens at all or just combine the two into one creature.
