For starters, we will release this game for NaNoRenO as a buggy demo version that will only contain the prologue. Afterwards, we will be working on this visual novel seriously with no due date.

You can download the prologue here


Story:
One day two constellations' whereabouts became unknown. As the starry sky lost some of its essence,
scientists worked desperately in order to find the truth about the new emptyness of the sky.
That day would be later called the Darkest Night.

Should the Darkest Night last forever? The destiny of these stars is now in your hands.

In "Stargazer" you play as Milena a part-timer at Crepes' Café that witnessed the constellations' fall.



Characters:

Image
Apodis: A shy boy that wants to be free. He doesn't stand out much but sometimes can be a little possessive.


Image
Chamaeleon: A nice and playful liar. No one knows his true self.

Milena


Preview:

This seems really interesting =). I also like the artist, it's cute. I don't think I've seen a story about constellations, so I'm highly interested. Good luck =).

Hard to say where the story will go (sounds like Apodis may be a prisoner or something?, but then I'm not sure where the waitress comes into it. Guess I'll have to wait and see :))

Good luck with nano.

Hello, nicole_melody! Ooh, I'm curious about this one. All the screenshots look so pretty, and I love Milena's name.

Also, this might be a bit random, but for a moment, I read the cafe's name too quickly and saw it as the "Creep's Cafe." And I was like "What? Where's Milena working at? D:" It wasn't until I re-read it again that I realized it was crepes. (For that matter, those are good. Now, I'm craving one!)

Out of curiosity, what inspired you both to make this story?

He just... has some features that doesn't allow Apodis do things of his own
I can't spoil you any more than that, sorry
But thank you~

Aw, this looks cute. The story sounds interesting, even though not much has been said about it. I like the theme of constellations, it sounds very nice and relaxing...
Also, the GUI looks really, really good. The preferences menu is so pretty o'A'o

Thanks! We tried to make a game as creative as possible. We decided to keep the plot as a secret, so the players can create their own expectations and see for themselves.


Update:
- Updated Chamaeleon Icon
- We started now writing the plot
- And also beginning programming
- The sprites for the main characters are almost complete
