A few words: Kiss Thief is a dramatic story about earning love before the real romance begins. This story is based on novels and fairy tale elements. Expect mature scenes and steamy elements to the story.

Image

SETTING
It's the 21st Century and old fashioned beliefs are in style. The city is rich and prosperous and the upper class is comprised of old French money. But underneath the riches, vast areas are poor and the crime rate is high. Sioux Falls, South Dakota is a place where the poor kill each other, and the rich pay the police to kill their enemies. Mobs hold all the power in this city, and the largest one belongs to Maxmillion Montagne.

THE ORIGINS
A prestigious and old society composed of elite individuals of the 1%. They are families who marry each other, conducting business in exclusive gatherings. All members have benefits and contribute a great deal to South Dakota. The top members are all part of one mob or another. In more ways than one, The Origins uphold old mob tradition while conducting in civilized business transactions . Masquerades balls are held all the time, and are both for celebration and business.

THE BOX
The box is passed down from generation to generation. Within it, the next leader of the mob, and the next owner of Sioux Falls, is foretold. On the day the current leader's daughter is wed, the new ruler will gain his rights.

Ooooh, this looks fun. I love historical fictions. Mob and hitmen? Yes!!
Z is my favorite; I love his art. And he's a hitman and I find that very hot, hahaha. I'm a huge fan of things being story driven with strong characters & character arcs. As far as there being only a few choices, this can be a hit or miss for some people. For me, as long as the story is well sewn together and I'm engaged then I don't care about the choices very much.

More GUI related progress coming along nicely :3 Everything you are seeing is subjected to change upon final demo. Still looking for a BG artist willing to join our project long term!!

You can choose between a red textbox which is default or a black textbox if you think the red looks too busy.

Can't wait to see the finished art on those masks. This is a masquerade I'll definitely be attending!

Hurray! Here are the colored sketches of the masks. (Look forward to fully shaded/finalized mask version in game). Good news is that we’ve found background artist(s) to speed up the game/demo process. We are now a full working team ^ ^

Oh wow, this game's premise is very interesting! And I really like the masks, so elegant and classy~

Off to my answers then:

(1) - A very pretty-looking game! It has a curious plot, some gorgeous boys and a protagonist who looked like she won't be the common copy-and-paste otome doormat mc. Fiery girls for the win!

(2) - For the love interests, Z is my current fave. His design tugs the heart plus I like the bodyguard-loves-master trope.

(3) - Ah, I like vns with more dynamic choices that actually felt like the player has a say to everything that might or might not happen. I'm okay with few choices still, as long as the story is interesting enough to keep me playing!

(4) - I really like the red UI, hehe~

Good luck on your project~!

Thanks for the awesome feedback!! Yes the protagonist will definitely have a lot of character. She will develop in each route well, along with our main bachelors. Z seems to be everyone's favorite so far. We might consider adding more choices if it feels like the game is lacking :)

^ ^ Things have been moving along slowly. Common route script done around 10k words. The common route still needs a little editing. Everyone got kinda busy but we managed to write about 10k words into Bane's route, approximately 20k more or so more words to go before moving on to Earl's route. The GUI has been in great progress in terms of programming and seeing it come into place on ren'py. More modifications still need to be done. (1 Background has been finished lol. Hoping to post it with a batch in the upcoming months.) Hoping an update a few months down the road will lead to more progress.
