Demo 

A demo of the first chapter has been published! This chapter doesn't feature any character sprites, as it is mostly there to set the general tone/setting of the novel and to give the player an idea of what kind of person the protagonist is. In short, you'll be viewing everything from their eyes!

Everything is in a draft state, and is most definitely NOT final! Feel free to leave feedback here!

"i want to hug the protag soooo cute" - some person on discord

the concept/game is good, I just...don't really get the choice to set it in Canada (English names and all) with them speaking full Japanese. French would've been awesome but..idk. It threw me for a loop while playing but that's just me. I mean, not to mention the, er. Planned 100% catgirls. But I'm ignoring that for my own sanity. 

Jokes aside, I'm sure people will love this. It's not for me, but can't wait to see what you'll do :)

Hello, thanks so much for checking out the project! I know, it's kinda odd having Japanese voicing for a novel with a western setting, it all really boils down to me already having found a good set of Japanese voice talent. Zinnia's voice actress is perfect, she even sounds like the vocalist for the novel's theme song, Typhoon Parade!

Also, no adult content. Ever. I am marketing this to as wide of an audience as possible.


The game's actually already packed in an .rpa file. It's just got lots of stuff in it.

Ah, didn't check. That's a fault on my part, I just assumed it wasn't 😅. Understandable to that file size thing. Mine is the same way. Wishing your game well now that my concerns have been answered! Removed!

Hi I sent you an email on outlook to enter for Sprite & CG...hope in your positive feedback
