Working on a visual novel. Ren'py

Inspired by a greek myth.

Your heart was frail so someone gave you a stronger heart. Now you carry the donors burden: love. To ease your -their- heart you must find the one they loved.

Characters (i guess SPOILER):

  • Hal. Donor. Veteran from the Sayshellian confederation Army.
  • Geisel. Pilot. Died near the end of the war.
  • Michi. Neighbor. Met Hal after Geisel's death. Thinks Hal was crazy.
  • Sitai Miss Me (:D): Pilot. Fought in the same team(?) as Geisel. Knows Hal's intentions.
  • Mr. Bennet. Inventor. Told Hal about the moon myth.
  • Eliseo Von Deer. Musician. Met Hal after Geisel's death. Tried to help him get over it through music.
  • Lamplighter. Lives on the moon. Likes nostalgic melodies. Pretended to be human once to know how love feels.
Still working on their design.

Put some music that gives a sad aura but i like that...

dialogues, text, more dialogues... is written like that? Ah! did some in-game menus and managed to undestand if statements :D

And well, having fun overall. I almost made myself cry.

this feels never ending but the end's by the corner...
