SO GOOD!
It was so much fun, especially seeing all of the different conversations you could have based on your prologue choices.
Can't wait for the full version!
Thank you for all your kindness!
Will proofread (grammar/typos) for hugs!

Thank you!! It's been a blast, joining NaNoRenO and making our first VN ^^

We wanted to release the full game by July, but at the rate we're going, I can't give a definite date... =( Had to pull a lot of all-nighters just to finish the demo this month.

This was really great! Awesome job on your first VN! It's hard for me to sit still through tons of text. I'm glad you put a bunch of choices in there to keep me occupied. Although the story was great, I would have played through it regardless. I loved the visuals, and I was able to like the characters a lot. I'm a sucker for otome games and cool pretty boys. This was a great game =) I can't wait for the rest to come out!

Thanks Sasuya! We will try to work on the game as much as we can in our spare time, eheh... Day jobs getting in the way...

The choices in the prologue actually determine the personality of Kyoko. :)

May I ask which character you liked the best?

Thanks again!

Thank you Sochie! =)

As the creator I can't be biased with the guys, but I do have a soft spot for Ryuu myself. XD He's serious but you'll find that he has some quirks ^^

Asuka needs a thousand hugs... :D She's my favorite character by far... Though the characters are all positively awesome. Kyoko's great protagonist. I like having a protagonist with an actual personality, instead of one who's like, "I'm happy all the time and love life and am unrealistically nice!"

And I love Gen and Minoru! Gen the most because he's so pretty I have a thing for tsunderes... Unless he actually isn't a tsundere... In which case, I have a thing for jerks. That's not good.

I like Minoru because he's such a good guy... Okay, so apparently, I like jerks and good guys. Great. Now I sound easy. Which I am if the guy is pretty...

And, in case you already realize, the art is to die for.

Also, it's an interesting premise. I'm wondering what the plot is going to be. With the ending of Chapter 1, I'm guessing it's not a slice-of-life kind of thing. Do you have an estimate for how many chapters you'll make? Just a question.

This game is positively fantastic. Well, the demo is. Can't wait till it comes out!

Melinoe, thank you so much for the wonderful comment ^___^

Yes, Asuka is adorable isn't she? I really loved scripting her part, it was just so fun ^^ The funny thing is there wasn't really supposed to be a character for her, Riisha just name-dropped her in the introduction, and then we realised that it would be good for Kyoko to have a female friend in the story (so that she wouldn't just be surrounded by guys... not that it's a bad thing...)

Oh don't worry I'm also very susceptible to pretty guys -_-; Haha yeah I didn't realise how pretty Gen was until Riisha drew him in a CG and I went "Wow he's prettier than Kyoko." Gen is a jerk, yes. Sometimes I want to smack him for the things he says to Kyoko XD As for Minoru, he is that friendly guy that makes you feel comfortable... but there's more to him that meets the eye...

Thank you! I kinda feel guilty about this though since the sprites and the backgrounds were done by other people. I know a lot of people who joined NaNoRenO made their game art themselves. As for me, I just wanted to start making the actual game and not worry about the art. This way we were able to focus on the plot, the story, and the characterisation.

Definitely not slice-of-life ^^; Would probably classify it as mystery. Something mysterious going on in the Onigami House... that's all I can say :D Chapters, umm... we've got a very rough draft up to Chapter 3, and extremely rough overview of the story up to the multiple endings... I think it's up to Chapter 10...

Thank you so much for the encouragement, we will do our best to finish the game ASAP! ^_^

This game is fantastic! There is definitely something going on in the Onigami house and I'm dying to find out XD!

Beautiful artwork and you really managed to bring a mysterious, slightly creepy vibe into the game.

Can't wait for the full game !

Gen is a jerk, yes. Sometimes I want to smack him for the things he says to Kyoko XD
Lol. ^__^
Gen may be a jerk, but I think he's also the most fun to interact with, especially given the character dynamic between him and (the 'confident version' of) Kyoko. So for me, it's the teasing back and forth between the two of them, far more than his good looks, that made me love that smart-ass kappa. *grins*
I also look forward to him (hopefully) developing a hidden soft spot as the game progresses.
As for Minoru, he is that friendly guy that makes you feel comfortable... but there's more to him that meets the eye...
Yeah, I get a sort of 'Wolf in Sheep's Clothing' vibe from him... He's my second favorite, I find his frequent over-the-top flirting to be hilarious.
Thank you for all your kindness!
Will proofread (grammar/typos) for hugs!

Thank you Mini_Moshi and Seven for the kind comments :D

So many Gen fans here! Distorsion, I'm glad you noticed the banter between Confident!Kyoko and Gen ^^; He's pretty mean to the other personalities, yeah?

And oh, sometimes even I get creeped out by Minoru ^^;; Ahahaha~

Hmmm .
This VN kinda reminds me of Hakuouki.
The story plot is somewhat similar xP .

Anyways, the Demo is pretty nice, I love the Sprites, they're so pretty ~
Congrats on the Demo release!
