Hahaha ;)

Thank you! 💚

Yes! I would love to see!

Please feel free to download and use as such! ☺️

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for this catch! It has been logged and we’ll look into it as we’re working on the next patch :)

We do! Right now we’re adding some features to Terranova that weren’t in the original release (like being able to change the theming and wallpaper), but after that, we’ll be talking about which ideas we want to pick up to make future games… :)

Thank YOU for playing and for commenting! That really made our day💚

I've been meaning to respond to your comment for a while now, but ahhh thank you so much for your overflowing love and support for our game.

It means SO MUCH to Mabbees and I. <3 I really have no words for how grateful we are. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your touching comment. I'm really glad you enjoyed playing!

Each of the girls are inspired by different aspects of my own friends. Some of them are still here, and some of them aren’t.

From my heart to yours, thank you for caring about them. Thank you for worrying about them. Thank you for crying for them.

It really does mean a lot to me. <3

Thank you for playing! 

Great sleuthing, you criminal master detective!
One hint: if you're feeling lost and you already have all seven costumes, you may want to return to beginning of the game...

Hi Kenneth!

Thanks for your question. Yes, Terranova is LGBTQIA+ friendly. In fact, there are no heterosexual relationships in this game. (EDIT: There is one, but it’s very short-lived.) All the player characters identify as women, (Tourmaline, Cherrygoround, EphemeralSmile and Sendaria) and the fictional characters they play in the roleplay community are men (Eytan, Dominique, Isaiah, Hikaru).

Two of the characters canonically date in the story.

Throughout the course of the game, there’s several LGBTQIA+ themes explored; when does friendship become romance, wanting a different body than what you were born with, seeing other people in your age group gravitate towards romance and sex when you don’t have those desires. 

As for the specific relationships, those are some of the main plot points in the story so I won’t spoil them! ;)

Hello! We want to, but neither of us have Linux environments to test on. If you or your friends are interested in helping us test the game on Linux, we can make a build for it. 💚

Good question! A growing number of people today are making their own personal websites and using webrings/link lists to form communities. An example of this is the Yesterweb Ring on Neocities.

Thank you so much for your support! You made our day. 🥰 We’re hard at work on the full release, so please look forward to that late summer/early fall.

Hello and thanks for the comment!
Yes, you should still be able to get the game. I've also set the currency to USD—if you have any troubles buying it, feel free to reach out again.

Hi again! Just wanted to follow up on this. I can confirm that there was a bug in the game, and I also uploaded a new build of the game with a fix for it. When you're ready to play more, give the new build a try :)

Thanks again for reporting in! Your feedback has helped us make a better game 🌈

There's more game ahead--it's possible you missed a prompt somewhere, but I think it's more likely you ran into a programming bug  :O.  We'll look into it some more this week.

Thanks for checking out the game :)

Hello, and thanks for playing! EphemeralSmile should give you a link to the Terranova blog after she posts, “Just putting the last touches on the CSS... behold!”

If you can’t find it there, you should be able to find it by clicking on your Internet and then choosing it from the home page. (It should have a thumbnail of it)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you for playing and for your comment! Out of curiosity, you mentioned the text—we’re working on cutting down on the text as we want to show, not tell.

Any part of the game so far that stood out to you that could use less text?

This was great! I won the artbook at FujoCon, and played the demo to see what the characters were about. I'm loving it so far. Please keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to seeing more updates.

I agree! It was so lovely, and I learned a lot about an industry that is normally so hidden (and not talked about). Thank you to the creators!

Thank you so much for playing and for your kind words! Your comment made our day. Just you wait—we have some fun things planned around the corner.

In the far future when electricity is rare, two bold adventurers chart the patterns of the stars in an organic ship they built. It's been five years since they left Earth, and in that time they've grown closer and closer still. 

When you've traversed the space between the stars with someone, how do you close the smallest gap?

A short story asexual romance inspired by Asexual Awareness Week. Aces are awesome!

Contains LGBTQIA+ themes and romance.

Preview of the story:

Once upon a time, there lived a little girl and her mother in a house by the woods. The mother, gray-faced and sullen, was hardworking and practical. She desired nothing more to live out the rest of her days with her only daughter.
Her daughter, however, dreamt of a world much bigger than their own; a world beyond their austere house and dark woods.

In this text-based interactive horror game, you play as Little Red Riding Hood, on her way to her grandmother's house. But something dark is lurking in the woods—something intimate, personal and horrifying. There are four total endings—can you play through them all?

Play Little Red in-browser here.
