I wish you a full recovery, and so appreciative of the updates despite you feeling sick! I just finished playing the first game and absolutely fell in love with this world. I will always be around to support you as a developer and will be looking forward to seeing everything you accomplish! I've played great visual novels but it's rare when I find ones like this that I absolutely fall in love with. Don't lose encouragement, because fans like me will be around to check in on you and support you! As excited as I am to play this game when it's fully released, take your time and don't compromise your health! We'll be around regardless because you truly deserve all the support and understanding.  I'm truly grateful to be able to experience this art you put into the world.  I know it sounds a bit dramatic, but your work has really helped better my life. Good stories are what add peace to my life, and give me a way to escape and be happy at the end of a long day. Stories like this always teach me something and add a new perspective to my life. It is your hard work that's made me smile and made me reflect on things in my own life. I can't thank you enough for the hard work. So please, take your time, because I and your other fans will be grateful anyways. Making a game is far from easy, yet you choose to do it for us. Get well soon and take care of yourself!

Edit: Also, feel free to ask for any help! I only have a little experience with renpy, but I'm always willing to help out as a fan with anything that will make the process of creating this game easier for you! Don't be afraid to reach out to us fans!

If the full version is bought now, will I be able to update my game to the voiced version? If so, how much would it be to buy it as an add-on/DLC? :) Also, any update on the ETA for the voiced version?

I am gray-A so am considered on the spectrum as well, I just find it irrelevant to mention because my identification does not mean I could not say ignorant things about someone I don't understand. Yes I already understood what you meant, but it comes off as you just trying to psychoanalyze someone and explain their sexuality away. It comes off as "you must be this way because you're traumatized." not because they already understand what they don't want in a relationship and made it very clear. I'm also looking at the bigger picture -- you used engaging in sex, running a sex shop, and masturbation as reasons for him to not be asexual, and I made it clear that those are not valid reasons at all why he wouldn't be since asexuals throughout the entire spectrum engage in all. Seemed misinformed to me to say otherwise, regardless of sexuality, hence me saying what I said. 

But I'm not going to continue this conversation over a video game character, it's not worth it. Just saying that it's not valid to use engagement  in sex or the interest in the idea of sex as a way to 'explain away' asexuality.  Would definitely come off rude to others if applied to a real person. Nothing left for me to say in this conversation, have a good day. 

You can be intrigued by sex and work at a sex shop and still be asexual...the explanation he gives makes it very clear that he is asexual. People who are asexual also are sometimes willing to engage in sex with their partners in order to make them happy, but may get nothing or little out of it themselves. Asexuality is really also a spectrum, asexual people have engaged in masturbation and some may stop after trying, some may continue to enjoy it and partake in it. Being nervous to get close to someone is also entirely different than asexuality, you can characterize with both or either/or. ..It is important that you educate yourself more on things like this before discussing them so that you don't spread false information.

Just wanted to say I appreciate your constant updates. It's rare nowadays when a game dev doesn't keep their fans in the dark. Even if things slow down in the future or would happen to, it's nice to have someone who cares enough to update, so keep being you! Thank you for your hard work!

You definitely do deserve it! I wish more games were like yours nowadays to be honest. I will follow and support for sure!

I mean, it's your game so it'd be helpful to know how to get certain routes lol...I can't get a good ending with the crush.

Goodness, worlds like these are my FAVORITE in fiction. The darker aesthetic is really amazing to me, and the art only serves to complement it. I had no choice but to support your work and check out the art pack. I really love art like this that has beautiful free brushstroke patterns (I don't know anything about art, that's the best way I can describe it haha!) You really created a beautiful world and atmosphere here! And I have to say I'm just a huge fan of your writing and pacing, you inspired me to write personal things myself. I really can't wait to see your future work that will include this world. Thank you for this little journey. <3 I'm not a renpy pro, but if you ever need help in the future with any part of your future projects then don't hesitate to ask! I really wouldn't mind further supporting and helping out with such a enticing world you've created.

Goodness, I'm with everyone else. I haven't played a lot of yaoi/shounen ai and had no idea what to expect in general with this game, but I definitely did not expect to love it this much. I was smiling the whole time playing this. I really enjoy your story telling and character development. It's not often anymore that I see this natural and beautiful progression of the story. It's been a long time since I've felt a VN make me feel the same sort of way this one did, nowadays I feel like a lot are missing heart but your game really had that something I've been missing in VNs. I really look forward to seeing what you make in the future, and would love to back any future projects if you crowdfund for or at least give support if you don't! Thank you for this little journey, and I hope you and/or your team never stop writing stories!

Is there a guide for this game? :)

Looks so nice, the art and premise are both remarkable! Hope this gets updated soon!

Hey there! Gotta say I really love the art and aesthetic of this game. The mystery and magic was really cool!

I just wanted to add some things because I really cared about this game more than I realized. I really am not the biggest fan of leaving constructive criticism because I think sometimes people are too harsh or it puts the creator down but I wanted to leave some because I genuinely love your work. In terms of graphics and user interface, I was blown away .Characters were very good looking and the story premise was great! I just somehow felt that halfway through, I was simply confused with the story. I was intrigued with the mystery but I realized with the plot wrapping up in my first playthrough that the captivating mystery had morphed into not me not ever really knowing where the plot was going anymore. I think the mystery fell a little flat in an anticlimatic way, like reveal was a bit dulled because of the plot twist. And the story never really delved too deep into how far it could go. The premise/worldbuilding was fleshed out so much for it! I just felt as if it never got too deep and the game kind of throws a lot of information at you to the point of confusion. I understood the plot twist and the gist of some things but I never truly understood what happened with the clues and things that the MC explained to the boys and stuff, and also didn't understand the 'backstory' completely, but maybe that was failure on my part. To add to it, the romance detracted a little because something important/serious would happen in the plot and just as I'm trying to understand it, there's be romance scenes that felt just kind of placed in. I guess I'm saying the timing of the romance confused me and detracted me from understanding the plot sometimes. 

I really don't want anything I say to come off as rude or harsh, it's 100% one person's opinion I just think it would really be awesome to get deeper in the plot. I really loved everything else besides that, the plot at first, art, music, and characters had me hooked. I would love to see more mystery and/or crime from you, I liked the idea of finding clues or unraveling a plot with a bunch of cute boys around lol!

Love! Thanks for the update and hard work.

Yes both are cool but I also like the 2nd if it has to be chosen!

I feel really bad, but...I have to agree. Didn't get very far because it was difficult to read. If you guys need help with grammar and whatnot, I'd be willing to help since I have some experience with renpy. This looks like a super good game, the grammar unfortunately makes it unreadable.

Exactly. I feel like they shouldn't be currently charging full price for an unfinished game, it doesn't sit well. If they're going to charge a full price that's more expensive than regular otomes, they should at least update on when the full game will be released. Very frustrating to have paid this much and it's not even fully released and have gotten nothing back but silence. It's been half a year, for christ's sake. My mistake for not reading the fine print barely even mentioned and assuming from the huge price that it was done, I guess.

The writing is beautiful, it's definitely worth the wait, and the character development is beyond amazing, which is exactly why I wouldn't recommend starting it until they finish it up.

Wanted to add to this! Makes me so happy to see other people who support this game. I played an early demo for this game many years ago and am still patiently waiting on it. Take your time, and know that there are people who wholeheartedly support you from the shadows haha! 

Have to agree about A2. One of those games that really hit me when I played as a teenager, I've played so many otome games and there's only a few that really hit me in the heart. A2 was one of them. Thanks for all of your hard work.

Can't believe I missed that! Well then I'm very excited to see another fantasia, can't wait to see it come together!

Are the episodes stand-alone, or do I need to play the first to understand the story? If it's a series, would I have to wait for future episodes to get the complete story or does everything wrap up in this episode? Asking because I usually wait till a VN or episodic series like this is fully done before I play and get into it!

Also, have to say, I played Fantasia and Doppelganger back years ago when I was younger and they were some of the best VNs that made a huge impression on me and were some of my favorites. I remember playing them back when there weren't as many English VNs but the market was still starting to grow, and your games had so much more depth to them than the regular japanese translated otomes I used to play. Your hard work over the years has been fully appreciated and I just thought it was important for you to know. (No lie, Fantasia 2 is probably my top otome from playing as a kid because of the adventure and romance aspects! I'm a sucker for adventure and romance so it was so awesome for me to travel with a bunch of cute guys haha!) I'm really glad to have played your games as a kid that I'll always remember as good impressions of English VNs! :)

Just wanted to know if there are any romance paths in this game? Looks good either way!

Will you be making a cheat at all? Like some sort of code to max out stats? 

Also wanted to say that I love your games! Your stories are amazing. Halloween otome was one of my faves when I played it years ago, and this one was just as amazing. I will continue to support your amazing work!

This game lags a lot for me. When I load, save, rollback, etc., the game lags very badly. I have a gaming laptop and it runs windows 8.  :/ Wish there was a fix or something for this. It's only this renpy game.

Excited for this! Love your work so much!

Silly question: How do you pronounce Apris? I was always saying it with a french pronunciation haha, with the "s" being silent. (Ah as in apple, and pris like "pree") But I don't think that's right. xD My friend  believes it to be

"Ah" - as in apple - priss"
"Ahh - as in awful - priss"

or "Ay - priss"

It's killing us and we have to know! xD

Such a beautiful, wonderful game <3 Your game had much more soul and passion in it then most commercial, polished otomes out here. (I totally slacked off in my  school studies because I was so into this game haha!) It just really made me feel like I was going on this amazing adventure with the characters. It really showed that you put a lot of time and effort into this game, story and characters. There are no words to describe how much I enjoyed this game. I loved how you could shape the main character, and I specifically loved Xander's character. A lot of otomes made very bland, archetypical characters that get boring after a while. Your characters and story are all so multidimensional and complex.  That barely happens nowadays, and I really appreciate your hard work to give us this beautiful game. The only things I think should've been different were the grammar/spelling issues and more sprites for Xander--he constantly looked evil and insincere with his smug smile sprite and it was misleading haha. xD 

Thank you thank you thank you. I look forward to seeing more work for you! You should definitely make your next game commercial, I'd pay good money to play your games!

It's not your computer, half of people are having this issue. Just look at the steam community. There's a horrible lag and it hasn't been fixed.  :/ It's disappointing because people keep complaining and they don't seem to care at all. No responses whatsoever.

Just wanted to say that this is one of the best VNs I've played, and I've played too many to count. I love this so much!! I can't believe this was free, you honestly deserve so much for this game and all the work you put in. The story is truly unlike any other. It's not fluffy like other VNs, it's real. The emotions of the characters are raw, and the characters are flawed yet beautiful. Definitely different than the basic archetypes for VNs and games in general. Really love the character development and the story in general! Don't even get me started on the music; I've found myself singing stuff everywhere I go haha. But I don't wanna ramble on too much, I just really like this game a lot and I appreciate all the hard work you put in. I wish it got more funds and attention that it deserves. Heck, if there's any way that I could help out besides funding, I'd love to help out! (Writing, programming?!) I just really wanna see this game complete one day and am looking forward to any epilogues that possibly come out. But please don't stress yourself out and take your time!

Thanks again for everything!

You based your knowledge on your HIGHSCHOOL AMERICAN government class, as if that meant you held all the information to all government. Also, there are PLENTY of forms of government with underdeveloped leaders. You don't know as much as you think about politics at all, so you might want to get over yourself a bit. Please do us all a favor and stay in school a bit longer. Also, honestly, SERIOUSLY, how would you feel if someone told you to "get better" at your art, and without you even ASKING for their opinion? Maybe this is better for them; that's why it's called ART. You might as well have said it was bad, it was extremely inconsiderate.

But you know what, I'm not gonna argue with you anymore; obviously there's a stick somewhere up in that rear of yours that can't be moved. If you want to take serious meaning out of a game genre thats mainly meant for romance then that's your own problem. (By the way, the definition of a game is, "a form of play" or "an activity engaged for amusement," so again: not meant to be taken serious even if you decide to do so.) You were very rude, and if you can't see that and want to make excuses then that's on you. But maybe you should keep that in mind for the future, because not everyone will appreciate your rude 'criticism' and overall dryness. (To be blunt, no one likes a buzzkill/stick in the *ss.)

I hope you learn to lighten up a bit. I won't be responding again, as I see it's a waste of time with you. Regardless, have a good day. :)

"""I take AP Gov in high school (and it hasn't even been one whole semester of the class yet!) so I think I know everything there is to know about politics. College classes? Political science degree? Who needs those, I take an advanced high school class and know everything. AMERICAN-style government definitely applies to all sorts of government in the world, even in this game. Taking AP Gov automatically means that I can't suspend my belief of reality to just relax and play a GAME. Games definitely HAVE to be realistic.

BTW, your art is bad. I don't care that you spent a lot of time working on it and that art isn't easy, and I don't care that I might be making you feel insecure about yourself and your artistic abilities. I'm gonna be rude as HELL anyways. Fix it.""" -Melocule
