'Like a belladonna flower,
only poison will be left
once the beauty is gone.'
There exists another world: a world that humans are blind to,
a world full of demons, whose origins go back in time, back before
humans existed... back when a poisonous love story played out.
Indeed, it was almost like a belladonna flower in full bloom.
Ezra is a boy who leads a normal life living alone. However, one day, he receives a text from a mysterious girl,
whose name is supposedly "Lune." After meeting her face-to-face, he finds himself entangled in a world where
demons exist. Tasked with the job of watching over these demons, can Ezra survive until the end (and maybe
find something more along the way), or will he fall under their dangerously alluring clutches?

You can see some (not all) of the previous designs + Ezra here in the recruitment thread.
The main protagonist.
Someone who likes to help others and is generally a chill dude.
However, even he has his insecurities.
A renowned idol known for his androgyny, though a bit two-faced.
He is kind in public, but he can mercilessly tease in private.
In the end though, is he telling truths or lies...?
A cheerful person and like a "social butterfly" whose smile is contagious.
Despite his cheery persona though, his past relating to Lune haunts him.
What lurks behind that bright smile of his?
A sharp-tongued girl with a rather short temper - her grudges are often ethereal.
She lives with Idris, but it's sometimes a wonder, seeing how much she dislikes him.
She also seems to hate people in general... why is that?
A young girl and a "hunter" of demons. She speaks only when needed.
Mysterious and unemotional, just what is going on in her mind?
※ Lune is a major character, but isn't pursuable herself (sorry).
We are looking for a BG Artist and UI Artist!

There are three pursuable characters (2 boys, 1 girl) and six ends: one good and one bad
end for each character. The word count is uncertain, but is predicted to be around 50K or
so. And yes, there will be comedy moments despite the dark moments in there as well! A
little note as well: if it helps to know, this game is rated 15+ or maybe even 16+.
Also, I am planning an expansion to this game. It may or may not become a reality though.
However, if it does, there are plans to have more content in the routes in general, have a more
fleshed out and thorough script with more variations and unlockable scenes based off of the
player's choices. There will also be another pursuable character, Eden, who is also involved
in Lune's and Kitt's pasts... their route will delve in deeper into the "origin" of these demons.
You may have noticed I used they/them to refer to Eden. Yes, they are of non-binary gender.
These are optional, but encouraged!
Do you like dark fantasy? What do you think of the story in general?
Have any character theories so far / theoretical answers to the questions posed in the character descriptions?
What is your general opinion on BL (there will be 2 boy options in the game)?
This story has inspirations from Tokyo Ghoul and Servamp. Are you a fan of one / both fandoms?
Have any general suggestions or comments about the game (and/or NaNo) overall?
