❅STORY❅ The world is full of mysteries and secrets.
In the shadows, beyond what the ordinary people can see, demons, witches and other supernatural beings live and fight.
But on a night 20 years ago, the balance of this world was offset. The happenings of that night are unkown till today for all. Until today, no one knew what truly happened that night. The only sign, one that even normal humans could sense, was the 'Hoshi no Ame': a rain of colorful stars all around the world. Since then, there have been several mysterious occurrences that even supernatural beings could not explain.
One of these occurrences is the appearance of the Shin. The Shin is a mysterious special ability granted to a few human children who were born in the past 20 years. However, this power comes at the cost of great misfortune, bringing danger to to the bearer and those around them. Because of this several tragedies happened.
Now those children, who have survived such a cruel fate, are slowly gathering in one place to finally reveal the truth:
Aurora Academy ... is a famous school with outstanding results in education and sports in the eyes of normal humans. But it's also the main location of the attempts to save those bearing a shin in the form of a special class, the Crystal Rose.

I really like the demo, and I can see that time is being put into it. The art, even when not completely finished, is amazing. The music fits the scenes perfectly and the UI looks really good polished. The characters, although many, have distinct [personality traits and are all interesting and quite mysterious. My favorite characters were definitely Sin and Atio .
Overall, for a WIP, the demo looks very well-done and polished. I can't wait to see more of this game!
Why is it a demo???I am sad :( cause i played it and then it said 'DEMO END' and i'm like"WHYYYYYYYYYY????" btw is the full game out yet? if so it is a really interesting and i would be interested in playing the full version and it would be evn better if it was free.....BUT the art style is awsome af and the script is well written so it wouldn't be a suprise if it wasn't free
Sorry for the late reply and I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the demo :) The full game is in development right now and the release is planned to be this year autumn, and it will be a commercial game.
Goddamn that cliffhanger :)) I just finished the demo and I had to come back here and write this. I enjoyed it a lot! The art is really nice and the characters are all really likeable . I can't wait to learn more about them after the full game is released. I'm very interested in Aito and Sin particularly but every other character interests me in some way or another. My favorite one for the moment is definetely Remi :)) She is sooo adorable. I was also very pleasently surprised to find out that Sheryl is not the typical MC for this type of game, mainly because I didn't read the characters bio before playing it so her personality was a surprise to me, one I very much enjoyed.
What else? I really don't know :)) Usually I would also try to give some sort of criticism I really can't find anything to be nitpicky about. Since it's not all finished I can't exactly comment on that. Also, I would love it if there was a also a route for Rishou, or idiot-sister-maniac as Sheryl nicely put it :)) He is hilarious and I found myself really really liking him, but that may be just because I am a sucker for tsunderes and he seems like one :))
That's all from me. Again, I really enjoyed the demo and I can't wait for the full release!
forgot to say this in my earlier post but I also just love how Sheryl is she just so friken amazing because she's not like some of the girl's in thesetypes of games where their totally clueless, and she's so far really badass XD and I just love and even though she's badass she still has her own flaws, weakness and she can't do everything on her own it really builds the story and the plot I love it also really builds her back story and once again I'm just in love with this game.
I love this game so much even though it's only in demo version right now I just Love it!! the story line is amazing, and it just captured my heart and attention right from the start I also love the art style and the characters they are amazing once again I just love this game so much!! when the full game starts it's gonna be hard for me to choose which route to start first for me it's between: Fraser , Aito , Hiryuu and for playing after those ones for the first i'd have to choose: Osamu, Lagi and then sin but its going to be so hard to choose I just can't wait for the full game to come out im so excited :)
I've played the demo and I must say, the characters are really likable! They have quite a varied personality despite myself only seeing so little. I really love how the heroine doesn't express much emotion but you still manage for her to convey emotion through the things that she does.
Honestly, these characters are some of my favorites and I can't wait to see more :D
Everytime I look at Hiryuu he seems like he's on a mobile phone . It's the way he's holding the clipboard to his face lol, maye a design change is due?
I enjoyed the music throughout, the writing seems sparse in places, some of the male characters hairstyles and bulid look very feminine though, more manly looking perhaps?
The background art has potential and I like the small amount of colour backgrounds so far. I know more writing is needed and this is a work in progress still but please give more character interaction, responses etc.
I would like to see some action screenshots of the monsters though although it is a demo, perhaps in full game. Overall it's a good start, has potential going forward and I look forward to seeing its development and release. Good luck!
I just finished the demo and I'm very excited to see more, I really enjoyed the imagery you conjured in text where the backgrounds are still in development, the Rose Gates especially, I loved the description of wings as the gates.
The characters are wonderfully varied and well designed and I can imagine the huge scope of possibilities with each of their personalities and situations.
I really hope that I can afford to support you in the near future as I can't wait to see what's left to come!
godddd I lovvvvvvedddd it can't wait for the full game. I also like how the main charater isn't one of those cliche characters and shows she has an interseting character it makes me wanna know her storie. (no offense to cliche)
So happy you liked the demo >v<// I will be able to tell an approximate release date after the Kickstarter ends, because that will determine the features of the game (for example whether there will be voice acting) and how much help I can hire.
Wow. This game is absolutely beautiful. I especially loved the backgronds in the Prologue. From what I can tell, this will be a beautiful game once completed. I appreciate that you released it even with some backgrounds incomplete- I can't wait for once they're all done. The characters are absolutely beautifully drawn, along with their lovable personalities is a wonderful mix for drawing the viewer into the game.
Best of luck with the rest of the game, and I hope this high standard continues throughout the game. I have no doubt it will. You have my support! Even though moral support is rather worthless, I suppose.
Well, I must confess you really got me curious with this plot. I decided to give it a shot because I was bored and I didn't get dissapointed. The relationship between characters are really nice <3 I think my favourite route will be Lagi but Aito seems the most interesting. So, I am looking forward to full game ;D
Hey! So I actually played the demo last week, but I didn't have an account then so I couldn't post a comment. I actually ended up re playing the demo, and deciding that I absolutely need to tell you how much I enjoyed it, I went and made an account xD I love the game so far, the world and the characters were very interesting :) I'm really looking forward to the full game because I'm so invested in the world and the premise. I really like Sheryl as the heroine too, and I enjoyed how story oriented this game is, unlike some other games that focus on the romance then story. The art is also very nice too. I have zero knowledge when it comes to making a visual novel, so I cannot offer actual help, but I'm sending moral support!! Good luck with this, and keep up the good work!!
Hello! I'm super loving this so far, I'm really excited to see how this all turns out! Perhaps, you might not want to hear this (I'm not really sure how you'll be updating this or just releasing the full game when it's complete), but I would much rather have the script more complete than drawings and character design at first. I know that it's much better to have everything progressing at a good pace in one piece, but it's just a personal preference that I at least want you to know about if you update it! I love the plot and I'm very happy that the characters are much different than what I'm used to seeing in typical otome games. I'm very excited, I really would love to lend a hand in helping but unfortunately I almost have no time in my schedule... Keep up the great work though, I would definitely recommend this to others!
Hey! I absolutely love the demo. It. Is. AMAZING. Keep up the good work. But I do have one request..... for the description you have of the game, it makes it seem like all the features are already there. It's a little misleading so maybe you could change the description >.< Anyway, I'm totally looking forward to when the game gets done. Also, if per chance you need any help with the development of the game, I could lend a hand. I know my way around Ren'Py and I do fancy myself a writer. lol. Thanks for the great game!
