I have created a donation page for those who would like to contribute!

There are a few perks that I'm sure you will want to check out, so have a look!

Donate!

And Sebastian's Sprite is done!



Seer is for now just the working title - The final product will be called Dragon's Blood, currently working on the title and screens.



Synopsis:

They say that destiny cannot be changed, that what is seen by the Seer is set in stone...

You have spent most of your life believing this, but when a young prince tries to rebel against his fate it throws your life into chaos.

Will you rise to the challenge? Or will your path lead you to the inevitable ruin envisioned?


Every choice you make has an impact on your story and the fate of those around you...

Choose wisely.

So thanks to anyone who is actually reading this! ( ^_^ ) I decided to create an otome style visual novel after being frustrated that all the ones I really liked were in Japanese only. I thought I should remedy that and create a unique story that I myself would want to play.

I created this topic to keep myself motivated and keep everyone up to date on my progress, I would also like opinions on my idea and the story content in my current 'demo.'

This is a personal project obviously and I am writing it all alone, that is 5 romances plus the underlying plot.

If you like my idea and think you'd be interested in helping, I am looking for another writer or two to flesh out the other character stories.

NEW DEMO

This demo includes full prologue and Chapter 1/2 with each decision branching to a different path, allowing for maximum replayabilty.

Nope, that is Eden, she is a priestess but that is from a different story lol, I just added it because the guy is Sebastian, he has his own separate story that I *may* make into a game if this goes well, he was my very first OC RPG character and I've had a lot of art commissioned of him already.
