Hey there! Curious how many chapters you plan to make for this story? I am going to play this prologue within the next few days, which is very rare for me because I do not tend to play unfinished stories haha. But I keep getting drawn into your game and will give it a shot! Have you planned a certain amount of chapters out or is that TBA? You had brought up in a lower comment that you are working on the next part so I assume you're released this episodically rather than a full game. 

Final Episode!

I just upload Episode 3: 

Episode 2:

Hey guys, I am planning to make a gameplay walkthrough of this game on my channel! The first part is already out 


Whew took me a while, there's a lot in my list! It's a nice visual novel, the music transition is nice and the the bg and sprites too~

But I find that some font are hard to read such as in the title screen or the characters name. Also although I said that the music transition is good, the volume control wasn't. For example the gust of wind and the cracking ice very loud unlike the other volume. That's all! I'll be continuing later.

Also if you're wondering I kinda figure he is good for the thumbnail but since he's naked it wouldn't be good to, so I give him the drip in thumbnail.

Part 2, this blow my mind lol. There's so much plot twist on this one. Though I must say the estimated time of between 30-60 is kind of far....

Oh well I suppose it'll be done in part 3.

Part 3, so yeah it's around 90 minutes :D


It left me hanginggggggg (which is not a bad thing)

Either ways it's nice~

Really love the lighting and the characters~

Hello, I'm planning to make a let's play of this visual novel. May I know how many word counts are in this visual novel so I can plan ahead on the length?

It's around 13k words, so around 30 - 60 min, depending on how fast you read :)

The art is absolutely gorgeous. The only problem I have is that it ends too soon. I'm so excited and looking forward to the release!!! I NEED to know what happens to these two.

Thank you! I'm working on another part, so there will be more story to read :)

Improvement Feedback:

I think the norm is the speaker names shouldn't be visible when the main character is thinking. It's very confusing if the MC is speaking or narrating.

The speaker name font is too cursive and hard to read. Maybe change to another font. Same goes for the menu fonts.

For the speaker's line, you can add a black border for contrast so it's easier to read.

I have a bunch of UI references here if it helps! (I also want to make a game, hoping to publish this year) 

Note that I'm not a UI specialist. I'm a game programmer XD

Overall Feedback:

The game is great! The first part of the story is very intense. I love the music too and the effects. The Art is stunning! I specially like the background images. Good job to your team! Looking forward to your release! <3
