And I saw the stars falling down... [Visual Novel][Psychological][Drama][Mystery?][FREE]

( I know the logo gives the idea this is going to be a happy story
instead of being a dramatic one... But that's actually intentional! 😉 )

Summary:
A woman refuses to be the main character of a novel.
She wishes to be just a simple extra, a simple secondary character, whose decisions doesn’t matter.
But the story keeps going, with or without her.

And she’ll have to make a choice before the story reachs an END.

Hi there!
This is the first visual novel I'm making in my studio novel & you !


I had always wanted to create my own "studio" of visual novels since '012.
I've just oficially opened last year after a lot, A LOT of time and effort and thanks to support of my lovely wifey 😚😊!
I have at least 4 stories I've planned since '012 but they have evolved through time.
This is one of them!

Since I don't have a digital tablet for drawing right now, I've left the characters's drawings at the end.
Well, not at the end of everything but until I get a new tablet! 😊😊 We (me and wifey) have been
saving up money for months now for it. We are half way to complete our goal!

So until I get a new tablet I've been developing other areas of the visual novel, such as the script, the design, the programming, etc.
Everything is already at 50%. Doing all the work yourself is a incredibly tired but I'm doing my best! (ง'̀-'́)ง

I expect this story to be at least 1h 30m long.... I think? Maybe less, maybe a bit more.

Some interesting links!

It looks promising. The premise is interesting and I like the logo with its "retro" vibe (I feel more "innocence" or "carefreeness" than "happiness" in the logo, btw).

Are you writting it in english directly or in spanish and you'll translate to english afterwards? There will be a spanish version?

Hi there!
Thanks for your words! 😊

I'm writing it directly in english. But there'll be also a spanish version, only not when I released it at first. It'll be after I finish this one. Mostly bc I want to make sure the script will "show" the same "feelings" in English and Spanish. And bc I'm going to end incredible tired after this 😥😥, I prefer not to rush it.

Update!
Just to tell you guys that I've completed the programming of something very important in a visual novel: The text Settings. If the settings of the text makes the fonts so small that you don't feel comfortable to read it all, it just makes everything so unpleasant to read (bc I've seen way too many games with such a small font it hurts my eyes trying to read, which makes the experience of playing it so uncomfortable that I don't want to continue :c)

(For people who wants more space between letters -like me!!)

And ofc, you can mix the two options, such as Size: Big with Kerning: 3pt.

The Default setting is set at Size: Medium (or Default) with Kerning: 1pt.

😊👍
