I think it's cool that you are using a younger protagonist in this. I don't see that too often and I think it's interesting. I also like how you are using the sprite style art. Everything about this VN is very unique. Good luck!

Thank you!
I actually want to see more younger/older protagonists in visual novels and want to make them, but considering that I'm 18 I don't think I can speak for the people in the 40's so here I am, writing 7 years olds :'d
Thanks! (that uniqueness is primarily thanks to the fact that these take less time-- well, the sprites, at least. The background? rip me)

Good luck with your projects, too!

I really love point and click style games =D. In fact those games are what I have most on my account lol. Anyway this story sounds very interesting =). As for the art I like the unique style. I remember seeing it in another game, but never got the chance to comment. Looking forward to this one. Just one question though, is this also maybe a bit of a horror ? I don't expect big jump scares, but the part with dolls eyes is creepy DX.

Hello! Thank you :'D Haha yeah I blatantly stole my own art style ;; Frankly I would've gone for another brush or another style entirely but eh it's NaNo
As for your second question-- I'm afraid it will kind of be? Like there won't be jumpscares, but if you clearly did things wrong repeatedly (there will be a lot of tells) there might be a sudden timed decision. (It will probably be like 5-10 seconds)
The doll part isn't really a thing though xD It's a description from before I fleshed things out, and now the doll does flag morse codes instead. The dolls are actually tame ghosts that Artemisia plays with.

In any case, you can actually bypass any investigations you don't want to do, too u v u

So interested in this project! I love paranormal stories, and I'm partial to bratty protagonists.
The art style is great, and the added lightsabers are a definite bonus lmao.
I'm really excited to see more! Wishing you luck!

Hello folks! Considering the past few days where I am useless and mostly moped around and slept, I decided that I'd at least post some progress, even if it's a WIP :'p

Still working on some arts, since I'm a bit blocked on the writing side. (My mind is certainly more into stories instead of pieces that can be gleamed for a semblance of knowledge)
Still, I'm working on it.

The wallpaper is so detailed!

I really like your non-antialiased pixel work so it's cool to see it in this as well. Hope you feel better soon, we're rooting for you! :)

I CAN'T TAKE CREDIT: I cheated by assembling a room in Sims xD
Though I couldn't use it as is since the furniture and other minor details need to be changed. Still, I can't take credit.
(OKay, I'll take credit for all the tRACING THE DAMASK PATTERN rip me)

Thank you! :'D I'm glad you like that art style, haha-- it's honestly a lot of fun. And thanks again! I'm feeling better now, and I think I'll most likely start working more tomorrow. [looks at the clock] Uh. Today.

THanks I'm feeling a lot better-- I spent Tuesday taking 2 hours to make oatmeal bc I just didn't want to do anything but that time is past and I'm hoping I won't repeat that episode again

I HAD A WRITER'S BLOCK BUT I SPENT A DAY AWAY (rafting is so much fun off topic) AND CAME BACK TO SAGUARO WORKING FRICKING MAGIC I AM HONESTLY JUST SPEECHLESS BUT ALSO INCREDIBLY INSPIRED TO WORK
basically I am easily bought
but also it's looking really great I can't believe this is a thing
It's ten days in and I'm still just kind of reeling at the fact that I get to work with incredible people seriously

Your artstyle is really interesting and I like the type of rendering you choose for your game. Paranormal/occult stories are the best XD. Good luck to all the team!!

Thank you so much! It really means a lot, considering that your art style is so distinct and interesting.
AND THEY ARE. Thank you!

EDIT: Ended up working on another room, and it seems like this is the style:
