Playtime: c. 15 minutes
After being thrown off the deck of a ship and nearly drowning as a child, Mizutani Nagisa develops an irrational fear of water. When storms afflict the neighborhood he lives in for a full week, his occasional nightmares of the incident plague him every single night -- until one day he finds himself stranded in his school building, which is slowly filling up with water...
He is accompanied by his best friend, Atsushi, and Ishikawa, the mysterious, stoic classmate he had never really noticed...
You play as Nagisa, and are given a choice -- to face your fears, knowing that you may hurt yourself and others in the process; or to accept them as a part of yourself, which may cause you to never to know the truth.
Visual-novel style gameplay with two ways of branching -- menus and deciding where to go via a location map.
Mizutani Nagisa / 水谷 渚
Height: 170 cm
A third-year high school student and the protagonist. Nagisa generally keeps to himself as he is afraid of opening up to people. He is uncomfortable with water after nearly drowning in the sea as a child. Depending on the player's choices, Nagisa can choose to face his fears and risk putting himself in danger, or accept himself as he is.
Ishikawa Youichi / 石川 洋一
Height: 180 cm
Nagisa's classmate, who seems to know an unusual lot about him...
Miki Atsushi / 三木 淳
Height: 176 cm
Nagisa's best friend since their freshman year. He has an infectiously cheerful personality, but a short temper. Atsushi puts on a brave front, but is frightened easily. He is Takano Ryuuki's senior in the badminton club.
Kanda Souta / 菅田 滝太
Height: 172 cm
The ever-reliable class president, but can't deal very well with unexpected situations. Is on good terms with Ishikawa.
Takano Ryuuki / 高野 流生

We would like critique on the demo -- particularly the characters, atmosphere and the plot. We know that the demo doesn't really cover much of the story, but from what you have played, does the plot seem to be "going somewhere"? Are you interested in knowing more about the characters (please specify)? Is the story well-paced? If not, how can we improve in all the above areas?
Critique on the art is also appreciated -- does the style fit the genre of the game? Does it clash with the GUI or the backgrounds? We appreciate your comments ^^
We hope to use this thread to obtain constructive feedback so we can improve the game, as well as to report updates in development.
