- A dark fantasy story that takes place on a reborn Earth.
- This is a story that is currently readable as a web novel on Royal Road. It is currently undergoing a rewrite, but it is available for normal reading there.
- A century has gone by since humanity nearly wiped all life from the earth. Their lust for power and progress tempted them to tamper with an unknown entity and in turn, brought forth an enigma of change. The weather, animals, physics and even humans had all taken new forms. What does "The compass Planet" Circinus, offer to the children who are born upon its lands? What is the true nature of the "Second Sun"?
- Distant Leaps to Circinus is about a world of mysteries.
- The lives of all living creatures are changed forever in an unforgiving world of rings. Enormous creatures roam the land, made up of the very life they were given. Crystals with entirely different elements, bring functionality and mystery to the world. Land masses that triumph the continents of the past world, float along an ununderstood axis, carrying the lives of millions with them. Children who can communicate in ways not known to anyone but them.
- The story features many characters who, while young, still wish to survive and live their life to the fullest.
- One of these characters is a child named, Zeais. He has dark brown hair, gray eyes, and is unfortunate enough to be born without the ability to see color. Despite his impairment, he is able to see color for very few reasons, reasons of which are also part of Circinus's mystery.
Another young child who is of a peculiar nature is a girl named, Eris. With black hair and orange highlights, she holds eyes that were imbued with the markings of a halo. Part of a life that held mostly unfortunate loses, she still wishes to lead a life to where she can truly be happy.
Within the community of these special children, are those who were not born with any special traits at all. Anya, a young blond girl who only has her father, lives to run her family Inn and take care of her only family member. She searches for clues to become a great person and searches within herself for reasons to do the things she never thought she could before.
Many other children have been born into the new world, many of them can no longer be called children, but nonetheless, they are still part of the world.
- A few tracks have already been made, featuring various artists that I've hired with what money I could.
- I really wanted to have the music instill a sense of life to them. Each song tells a different story and hopefully holds the same sense of danger that the world has. Below is one of the tracks, which could probably be called the theme song, Children of Circinus.

- Does this story sound interesting enough to become a Visual Novel?
- Do the characters, even with a basic outline sound engaging?
- Does the world envoke you to want to know more?
- How would you feel if the Visual Novel offered both a Kinetic route and one with choices? (A normal Visual Novel option would include special chapters and characters, while a kinetic route would show the base ending. There are many more mysteries to the world than just the main characters.)
- The story includes multiple leads, would you feel less attached to them as a character?
- This story is published as an accessible free web novel on the site RoyalRoad. Do you feel like being able to both read and experience a visual format would be confusing?
- Worthy of being a paid project?
