|| A new goddess is born in Aetherea. The Potpourri Goddess, Zuraza, begins their life. ||
|| As they begin their duties, guided by their mentor Idida, they find themself astounded by how many beautiful Goddesses surround them. ||
|| Will they ignore romance all together to focus on ranking up? Or will they attempt balance their duties with romance? ||
|| Not to mention, if they're unable to balance the two, they'll be killed and replaced. But... ||

Aetherea is a lesbian romance visual novel, focused on Goddesses.

Features
◾️3 romance interests!◾️
◾️4 different routes!◾️
◾️Many trans characters!◾️
◾️Everyones gay!◾️

Image

RAZ - Main character (name changeable!)
♈️ - Nonbinary - Low ranking
The newest goddess. Trying to learn and rank up, while staying social. Forward and extroverted, with a hot temper. Quite the moody goddess.
Their personality is prominent from the beginning, something unheard of in new goddesses.
Someone who falls for others easily.

Image
IDIDA - Mentor
♑️ - Transfeminine - Mid ranking
Raz's mentor, a potential love interest, and Goddess of Stained Glass. She is one of the best mentors in Aetherea, though shes rather cold and quiet with anyone else.
She's emotionally closed off, serious, and a workaholic, but deep down shes really just struggling. Full of worries and insecurities, she ignores them by throw herself into her work.
She has significant hearing loss, but gets around fine by the use of notes and reading lips.

Image
CECILIA - Crop Goddess
♌️ - Agender - Mid ranking
A potential love interest for Raz. She's popular and loud, a real life of the party. She's open and inviting, kind and loyal.
She's shameless to a fault, and often blurts out whatever shes thinking, good or bad.
Cece dates around a lot, and often has multiple partners at once. She most often has flings, but is affectionate and generous with someone shes serious about.

Image
YUVINE - Art Goddess
♒️ - Demigirl - High ranking
A potential love interest for Raz. Yuvine is a introvert, preferring to stay by herself and paint than be around a lot of people.
She's very blunt, and brutally honest. Incredibly laid back, almost nothing can bother her. Which is good, considering many people dislike her for being so blunt.
She has a soft spot for her close friends, though, and will often stop by with gifts to see how theyre doing.

Notes

This is my first game and I'm learning as I go along so I'm really just hoping for the best w this.
An important note: For the demo (aka what im trying to accomplish this month) the only route available will be Ididas. Cecilia, Yuvines, and a secret route will be available in the finished game.

The dev blog is here! Feel free to give me any feedback, suggestions, etc.

This seems cute. c: Are there any characters besides the romance options? (I think Cecilia's my favorite, by the way.)

Those character designs are absolutely gorgeous (I'm especially loving the stained glass sleeves on Idida's outfit). Really looking forward to seeing the finished sprites!

Good luck on this project!

I found this to be breathtaking! The concept for story, characters, character art and everything is beautifully unique.
The characters descriptions are really interesting, it have a lot of various and specific characteristic. It'll be very exciting to see how the story describe the Goddesses and the Goddess realm.
I believe this will be a great VN. Good luck and can't wait to see more from you guys!
