a PAIRS story
BG Artist: jumper09
Sprite Artist: Shida
Chibi Artist: Butterfly Wisps
A warrior-poet who is lost in more ways than one.
A heroine, rejected by the very society she strives to protect.
Both of them seek a place to call their own, but if they thought they'd find solace on the Island, they were sorely mistaken...
Set in the same universe as Pairs, this is a companion sequel to last year's NaNoRenO project, Pairs! That means that you don't have to play the original to understand the plot, but some characters will be reoccurring. By the title, you can probably guess that the center of this game is not two people who are already dating.
This time, I've decided to concentrate on two people who are not dating, but thrown together by circumstance.
The game will be split into two sections: the before, which delves into their backstories and how they ended up on the island in the first place, and the after, which details their meeting and maybe more. And of course, it wouldn't be a Pairs game if players couldn't choose the perspective of who they play as. I know the story bit is vague, but I'm keeping it that way on purpose. All you really need to remember is that this VN is set on a desert island. I'll let the rest reveal itself through the month!
MEET THE PAIR.
“There were times when I believed so strongly that there was nothing more compelling, more thrilling than the scent of blood--but one can take but so many baths before it begins to stain.”
“Father once told me that the world is cruel, that faith in others is the fastest way to lose yourself. Father once told me, 'To trust is to betray.' And I... I believe him.”
