Practically everyone who goes through Mage Academy wants to become an Arch Mage, the strongest of Mages.
But for Zoya, that option was removed from her the instant she realised she was Asexual Aromantic.
You see, magic is the connections you have with others. Care for someone, and you can heal what ails them. Despise someone, and all you can do is lay curses upon them.
Furthermore, strong mutual bonds are essential for the most powerful of magic. The bonds between those in a committed relationship are seen as being the strongest of all. Which is why Arch Mages are required to be in a relationship with another Mage.
She tried once, she’ll never try again.
So when Kyo, her ex, shows up at her door, with an invitation to his Arch Mage ceremony, painful memories flood back.
And when disaster strikes at the ceremony, Zoya decides to try and help a world that never tried to help her.
Acetone is a Kinetic Visual Novel that will be made in Ren’py. It is estimated to be around 5k to 10k words in length.
This will be the first time I’m using the engine in a capacity that’s more then just drawing assets. It’s going to be an interesting learning exercise for me!
Given the flexible nature of the start of Ace Jam, I have decided to only start writing and drawing proper once January begins. However, I have allowed myself to draw concepts and write outlines before then.
I am planning on doing an Art Book for this game. However, the majority of my character concepts will be available for free as I am doing a Character Design Challenge with this game.
My twitter thread for said Character Design Challenge can be found here.
