~Kinetic novel in renpy.
~Female's perspective. The main character has a rich background, motive, and distinct personality.
~This will be a commercial project.
~PG13 due to swearing and dark themes.
~Mixture of lighthearted humor, drama, romance, action-adventure, fantasy, and mystery.
~Vast world lore and character backgrounds. We are considering keeping a "journal" of some sort for the player to revert back to in order to keep up with all of the information. However, this may not be prepared in time for the demo.
~Backgrounds of the different cities in the fantasy world Aradan. The demo will take place in the first city, Nohiria. The rest of the story will take place in different places within this fantasy world.
~Fully colored CGs
~Music and SFX for a fully immersive experience
~The demo should be released by Fall 2019.
Overall, there's a handful of people involved with this project. We estimate that the novel will be approximately 80,000 words. This project has been in development for almost two years, it has gone through a lot of changes and it's finally come together. We are excited to finally release the demo and see how people react to it. -Suna
