Also really like the art you've posted so far, the clothing especially is very impressive! Good luck with your game!
Thanks so much Auro-Cyanide! We're definitely going to do our best this month! *Fangirling* I really love your work, btw!!

I don't know if I understand properly, but it sounds like you're taking the weird, godlike aspect of player control in a VN, and actually using that in the narrative. Niiiice concept! XD I definitely have some friends who'll want to see this.
Yes, you're right on point. You're not playing as any of the characters in the game, but you can affect some of the events. One of the possibilities is the character fighting back and disobeying the player's commands, which is an interesting experiment in a VN medium. We're hard at work in building the story at the moment so we haven't fully explored this feature. Hopefully, it will give an interesting effect. Also, now that you mention horror, the game isn't horror as it is "Gothic". It lacks the "horror" elements found in the usual horror games so we're not sure what genre it is exactly. We might consider changing the genre to "supernatural" instead.

Hi uminee! Thanks so much for your support. The game is probably not as scary as you think. I think you'll be fine. I hope you get to play it!

Hahaha that picture with the sunglasses.

He does have an awesome design though. The detail you put in those sprites is impressive. Can't wait to see more of this. I hope we'll see some piano scenes. I play it myself! :3

Thanks, Rahnos (are you the same LadyRahnos who commented on our tumblr? If so, thanks for supporting our tumblr as well ^^). Fortunately, there will quite a number of piano scenes in the game utilizing some CC classical piano pieces. Hope you look forward to it :)

I missed commenting on this somehow. I love the realistic art style, it's not often you get to see such detail in a VN. And the mystery surrounding Marquis and his previous lovers really makes me want to find out what's really going on.

Cute profile pictures for the characters. D'aww lookie them. My bbs look so happy. It's almost as if nobody ends up either dead or insane or depraved, doesn't it?

That's Marionette, our programmer. I guess he got bored since he didn't have anything to do in the first few days of Nano lol. Thanks for the kind words!

I'm a big fan of realistic looking anime, thanks for noticing! Hope you get to play and find out! *evil grin*

*opens door* Wow. Have I missed the party? So much is going on here! *walks out again*

No, but seriously though, this script was a good read! And, uh, yes, *cough cough* there are some very, uhhh... nice scenes - shall we say. >_<
Seriously, guys. Do you know how suspicious my sister was when she saw my notes? I've got to keep my credits clean, you know! XD

I just hope I didn't miss any mistakes! *nervous laugh*

I swear to glob, though, if I have to write out another entire sentence just because someone missed one full-stop on their ellipsis I'll be the one having a mental breakdown... X_X

Yes, that's me on tumblr, wanted to give you guys some extra support! :)
I'm so glad you will be including piano scenes! It gives character to a game, such things. Can't wait to see them!

Also, I have always wanted to have a long side ponytail like Catherine has. My hair is not as long but it's getting there. I love her design!

Rosa's design makes her look like she's a rather shy/timid girl, but I don't see anything like that in her bio. I suppose being very sad also makes you bow your head a little. I hope she'll have some happier scenes too. (Yes, I know it's horror/supernatural. But I can't help but want people to be happy)

Ooh, I must say, the story's intriguing and the art is absolutely gorgeous!

A mentally unstable protagonist sounds awesome :>

Keep it up, and good luck!
