This year, we'll be focusing on an otome game of all things (gasp), since we're a team made up out of girls it was about time we did. Another important reason is 'because we can', but also because the story we though up fits this type of VN rather excellently. It'll be inspired by ancient East Asia, so expect some cool shrines and oriental outfits~
Long ago, in a valley where a small village lay, two deities fought each other. One was imprisoned, the other vanished. Yet some time ago, an unnatural mist began lingering in the village, dissolving people's memories.
Biyu, a young shrine maiden, is now working her hardest in the shrine of one of these deities in the faint hope the mist will one day dissolve. Even though her good friend also lost his memory, not all hope is lost; she meets a stranger who seems to be recovering from his memory loss, and rather quickly as well...
Biyu (left) & Maru (right)
Biyu is our hardworking and rather obedient main character, but she still manages to be a proactive and cunning girl. She finds Maru at another shrine one day; a cheerful and mysterious young man who seems to have lost his memory like many others.
Liufan (left) & Senrei (right)
Liufan is Biyu's good friend. Since his parents passed away recently (his old home is to blame for that), he lives at her place now. As for Senrei... he's a god and supposedly evil, that's all you need to know for now.
