A young man named Maravin lies bedridden, awaiting for his death, until a mysterious woman appears in his room.
She claims to be a Death Rite; a rare, legendary creature that is said to come to a dying person with a gift to ease one's passing.
This gift is a wish, to grant that person one thing they desire most.
Whilst he was never vocal about it, what Maravin desires most is to find love. The thought of dying alone was depressing, and he wished that if only he could have a little more time--
Thus, the Death Rite--Zanalia--grants him this wish, and for a limited time, Maravin will be free from his illness to capture the heart of a lady of his choosing, with even some time to spare to be with her.
His choice is to impress Princess Celeste, but is she the one his heart really wants in the end?

MARAVIN - Our Hero
This is the player. Stricken with an illness, you are temporarily healed in order to fulfill your dreams of capturing a woman's heart!
JAHSU - The Best Friend
At the beginning of the game, he is one of the choices you have upon your heart to bring on your journey. He is your best friend, partner in crime, and a fairly good fighter. You two make a pretty good team. [Platonic]
KEI'LA - The Herbalist Girl
At the beginning of the game, she is one of the choices you have upon your heart to bring on your journey. A local herbalist you knew who showed you great kindness as you slowly descended in your illness. You've grown quite fond of her and don't trust anyone else with your health. She is 3 years your senior. [Romance-able]
MIRU - The Little Sister
At the beginning of the game, she is one of the choices you have upon your heart to bring on your journey. She is cute and cheery, and you always had fun together. She isn't very strong, but she boost morale and is a good cook. You are extremely protective of her. [Platonic]
PRINCESS CELESTE - Your Heart's Desire
She was the face that came to mind when Zanalia interpreted your wish to fall in love. Princess Celeste is a kind, sweet soul, loved by her people. But she will not be easy to impress - in an attempt to capture the young maiden's heart, you offer your services and will complete a set of tasks. If she falls for you, she will gladly let you take her hand in marriage. [Romance-able]
There are plans for at least 2 more romance-able heroines, and a possibility of 4 random characters you may take into your party. I am looking for people interested in possibly doing event CGs, so if any artists are interested, feel free to PM me ^^

[ DEV NOTES ]
So this is my project this year and I am quite confident about it! Unlike previous years, I actually have a schedule to work with, with all the writing planned to be completed in the first week and most of everything else for the remaining 3! After 7 years, I am confident I can finally defeat NaNoRenO! I am hoping the voice feature will make it into the game on instead of after, especially since me and my original team started NaNoRenO together back in 2012. It will be a pleasure to defeat it with them by my side, and I hope you guys will enjoy the journey as well! I have always wanted to make a Bishoujo game. Otome are fun and all, but there's so many of them. So I thought a clean Bishoujo fantasy title would be fun ^^
