Vengeful Heart [WxM][WxW][Plot Driven][Revenge][Sci-fi][DEMO OUT ON STEAM +ITCH]

Vengeful Heart
...
Note: if you use itch.io's optional payment system to pay 5$ or more for the demo, you will get the full VN for free, when it lauches (Steam + itch keys)
...
Thanks to KotoriWorks for the trailer!
...
Itch.io wrote about us on their recommendations blog! Read the post here!
...
Discord Link if that's your jam :) Come talk with us, ask questions and other fun stuff!
...
After The Great Voyage launched me and my buddy decided we wanted to make another visual novel. Vengeful Heart will be a bigger, better and longer than our previous work, and it again borrows a lot of inspiration from the 1980's and 1990's PC-98 visual novels. All the planning is now done and we have begun production, which is going very smoothly for now. There will be two romance options, one man and one woman and two ways the story can end. (Neither are "bad ends") So in total there FOUR different endings to Vengeful heart.
...
Premise
In a future megacity where corporations control even the most basic human necessities. Betrayed by the calculated cruelty of an evil corporation, Josephine Lace finds herself homeless, jobless and without a heart. Believing she has nothing to lose, she joins a ragtag group of rebels seeking vengeance. She’s got no idea how much is on the line.
...
Characters
More character art will be added as I finish the sprites
.
Josephine Lace
Image
A hydraulic engineer for Nepthys Incorporated.
She comes from a poor background, but managed to get educated because her parents took huge loans.
Now she is determined to make most of her parents sacrifice and rise to the top of the corporate ladder.
.
Sgt Rani Janis (Pursuable)
Image
A war veteran with an impressive record of service in both state and private armies and security forces.
Initially she isn't really political but getting injured awakens her to fixing what's wrong with the world.
Seeing war and all its ugliness has left her nihilistic and distrusting of people.
.
Dr. Norbert Maturana (Pursuable)
Image
A specialist in cybernetic organ replacement and works at the Jenner Private Hospital.
Abhors violence in all its forms.
His pacifism is what leads him to eventually abandon his lucrative job at the hospital when he realizes that he isn't saving anyone working for a privatized luxury hospital.
.
Bob Larsen
A blue collar worker from the lower town.
He comes from a working class family and has 11 siblings, all of whom are also factory workers.
Bob has had to work from a very young age to help the family. Thus he never had the time to go to school.
.
Jane Sierra
A student activist from the local university.
She is currently writing her masters in social studies and gender studies.
She is liberal minded and is active in youth organizations.
Her family is actually upper middle class and Jane is somewhat uncomfortable either working with her hands or meeting people who do.
She follows politics keenly and believes the best route to economic change being a broad change in legislation and culture.
.
...
Music
We have a composer doing amazing synthwave retroy music for us! Listen to it here!
...
Background Art
Earlier I complained about not having skills needed to do good background art. To my joy we found an amazing artist, El Metallico, who's now doing some backgrounds for us! His Artstation is here!

Oh wow!! This looks like such a cool project! I absolutely love the setting, I think you'll be able to explore some really cool themes with it. And all three of the character portraits you have so far are awesome, Sgt. Janis is gorgeous! <3

I really like the art design, the characters look very charming and it also has a certain roughness to it that I like. I also think the color palette in the examples screenshot looks good.

The art style reminds me of the web visual novels I used to play and it's quite nostalgic. I'm really into revenge-esque stories so I'm looking forward to this games progression :D

The sprites and the fake screenshot CGs look super cute! I'm in love with the style, it looks super charming. I really have a soft spot for pixel art and seeing the game's rendition of it really makes me think of retro game vibes (which I absolutely love).

Revenge AND sci-fi in the story? Great mix! I'm looking forward to this VN. ^^ Wishing you the best of luck!
