Flowers which Bloom in Winter
(Genres tentative.)

Demo : https://kimiyoto.itch.io/flowers-which-bloom-in-winter

Sypnopsis:
Rue, a prince of a snowy land, had set out from the capital incognito in search of a bride. However, on his journey he was attacked by bandits! He wakes up in a remote village, at the care of a quiet apothecary and carefree hunter. He wishes to learn more about the two but a certain mystery of their bond seems to be keeping him from getting anywhere close. Will Rue find his princess here?

Characters :
Rue - The prince who left to search for a bride at the behest of an adviser, to stabilize his position as the sucssesor to the throne.
Alyssum - The village's sole apothecary. Has a gentle personality, but also seems to constantly have her guard up.
Holly - A local hunter. Always carries her crossbow with her, and often takes trips deep into the forest to hunt. Helps Aly gather materials in exchange for medicine for her sick grandmother.

Features :
- 2 Routes (might only release 1 for Nano)
- 8 CGs

Team :
Kimiyoto [Script, GUI/Logo, Programmer, Art(BG, Assist)]
Rokuuso [Art(Sprites), Idea bouncer]
ds-sans [Proofreader/Editor, Programming(Assist)]

Will update more as we go along, still figuring things out at the moment.

Demo Progress (as at 31 Mar)
Script Outline : 100%
Script: 100%
Character Designs: 100%
Sprites: 100%
CGs: 50%
BGs (Demo) : 80%
GUI & Logo: 100%
Programming GUI: 100%
Programming Script : 5%

Hoping I'll have time to create a theme bgm but we'll see ahaha

19 March Update :
Instead of a full game we've decided to release it as a demo instead. We need a little more time to complete certain assets, and I'd prefer not to rush and put out something of poor quality just to get it done, since we've put alot of work into this already ∠( ᐛ 」∠)_
Will try to figure out what we'll put for the demo and what to leave out in the meantime welp

20 September 2022 Update :
Full Demo completed

Thank you!!


Here's a preview of Holly! Design is in the final stages at the moment but still subject to change. (mostly color adjustments at this point)

Some menu previews as well
(The main screen image is actually temporary, will likely change it unless we don't have the time haha-)

We've been reworking the outline of the story a little, so technically none of the script has been done yet- I'm a bit worried we won't make it in time but I'll do my best to write haha-

I've noted down all the BGs needed as well, hope in the next update I can share some previews!

It's only about 10 minutes long (or less), but we do hope to continue working on it after the jam.
