Path of Dreamers [Fantasy]

From left to right:

Keir
A hard-working spy who is the main character.

Casimir
The proud son of the local lord.

Cecilia
A bad-ass knight looking for a promotion.

Synopsis

"Please, help me free my beloved."

With those words, the young spy Keir pleads for the help of one of his skilled peers: a man named Lloyd.
For without an effective escape plan, his loved one is certain to die.
Lloyd agrees, but even with his help the flight from the castle will be anything but easy.
The path to his future: can Keir reach that dream?

A little bit of backstory: "Wasn't your group dead?"

Nope! Although I can't blame anyone for thinking me and my team-mate Kiki left the VN-realm.

This will be our 4th NaNoRenO visual novel, VNs we previously made were: Nanolife, Days of the Divine & Binary Soul.
In 2013 we posted a topic for our big project Locus Magici (see my banner), and as time went by we went silent.

Then due to some personal circumstances, our VN content slowed down. We didn't want to post content-less updates just to say we were still working,
so we instead slowed the pace. For those who still remember LoMa: it will be finished, but we'll only revive the topic once we get close to release~
(There's one advantage to this all: we've become some pretty tough girls! ;3)

As for this project: it's a side story set in the universe of Locus Magici, as a small teaser for the real thing.
It's also a nice way to get back into VN-making, and stress-test our new engine. We hope you'll all enjoy it!

Let's do this! :D

Oh goodness, the creators of Days of The Divine!
The character art is beautiful. I want to say that I like Casimir the most- with that elegant stance and stoic demeanor (perfect gap moe XD) but then, there's Cecilia just standing there, confident smirk, awesome armour and a character description that calls her a badass knight. So at this point, choosing is just impossible!

The synopsis is short and leaves many questions, but given the fantasy setting and the chara designs, I would definitely love to play this when it comes out.
Good luck on your project!~

Cecilia's armour looks super nice!
It kinda reminds me of something out of Baten Kaitos, which I really like.

Oh man, the pressure hahaha. Everyone liked Cecilia so much that we did our best to make her live up to the expectations in the story!

I've updated progress a little bit as well, and I'll show some progress sneak-peeks soon~ Either way, nano is great fun again :3.

Thanks! I'd definitely like to hear what you think of the story then when we're done~

Thanks so much ^.^/! I still need to finish that game actually, but I'm flattered her design reminds you of it!

Thank you! We're actually taking a few days extra this nanoreno because business trips took up a lot of time :') (and we want to polish some things). Hope you'll like this one too~
