I'm so excited for this game!

Oh I actually know the answer to this!  No demo yet, but Windchimes is working on a fantasy otome called Reanimation Scheme, you can follow development here: https://windchimesgames.tumblr.com/

It looks pretty cool to me, the art is gorgeous and the characters sound fun and full of personality.

Woo!  I'm so excited, thanks for all your hard work!

Just finished the demo, I really enjoyed it!!  I'm definitely going for Cordelian, huge fan of childhood friend romances and having a story with all the drama potential of breaking up a royal engagement :)


Can't wait to hear some updates and play the game!

I LOVE it.  I like the more serious tone as opposed to the first game, though I'm pleased it still has a lot of the originals charming playfulness still.  I'm so excited to see how the characters have grown over the past few years.  I like being able to select the original traits up front as well as the route as I had a little bit of trouble guessing when the first game first came out and it took me a bit to figure out what option equaled what trait (except the super obvious ones).

So far Sophia is my fave for this game, though I loved the interactions between MC and everyone.  Leo and her were really cute together, and I love the dynamic with her brother.  I also really like the loveless marriage option, I'm a sucker for angst.   It was great hearing our mom's reaction to our choices (she got so angry with all of mine haha) and meeting her in person, I can tell she's going to be a great (and fearsome!) character.

Looking forward to the rest of the routes, especially my fave of the first game, Bastien, I'm sure that choice will go over well with mom :P

Anyway, good luck and thank you for all of your hard work, I shall be stalking this game relentlessly!

Ah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'm downloading the demo now, I am SO excited!  I can't play until tomorrow but I'll come back to gush when I do.
Thank you so much for your hard work!

Can't wait!  Good luck you guys :D

I also vote all at once!  I don't mind waiting, even though I keep saying I can't wait I mean I can't wait before getting excited, but I can actually physically wait lol.

Whatever is lowest stress for the team though!

I cannot wait!!!

I was having  really bad day today and this totally helped cheer me up, thanks for the update!

Looking forward to it :)

Oh awesome!  I'm getting more excited by the day :)

Oh my gosh.  I'm going to try and get slovenly now!
And awesome!!! I'm not worried about not liking the game, I just want to play whatever I can as soon as possible LOL.
You've totally made my day, thank you!!!

omg, this is just making me more excited.  But poor Heaven's Grave xD

Will it have a demo like your other games???

And I know I'm late to the party, but what are the 9 traits in the original?  I know you're probably saving what the new 9 are for the release for people to discover, but since TRoS has been out a bit can I get a hint as to what I'm missing?  I think I've gotten 5/9

I think I've gotten the following descriptions
- commanding
- cunning (clever?)
- scholar
- strong (?)
- hellion

What am I missing?  Every time I start a new game I tell myself I'll pick different options, but I tend to always end up with some combo of the above xD

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE THEM.  The new sprite outfits are lovely!

I'm so excited for this game, you don't even know.  I mean, I'm excited for all of your games (liked DaDBS a lot, loved TRoS, following BFF and HG closely) but I have SUCH a soft spot for traditional fantasy.  And being able to be gay/bi.  And childhood friend/grew up together romances.  And disapproving parents.  And Inter-class relationships.  And political intrigue.  And smart/strong MCs.  And roleplaying opportunities.  And the previous tRoS characters.  And Bastien.

Ok, I have a lot of soft spots, but this game looks like it'll be hitting all of them nicely.  So I'm really excited.  Best of luck to you and the rest of the team :) 

:D

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE NO WORDS FOR MY EXCITEMENT DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PARENTS REACTION TO SOME OF OUR CHOICES???

This is literally so exciting it brightened my whole day!!

'I hope you will enjoy this short demonstration of the fame'

Might want to fix that typo ;)


But I played the demo and I liked it a lot!  I'll keep an eye out for when it gets released.

Attention everyone:  For the most up to date announcements and going ons regarding LiD, the team highly recommends you follow the tumblr (ladsindistress.tumblr.com) or join the game discord here: https://discordapp.com/invite/uAG3Cqe the actual team members are a part of it,  which means they (or any of the helpful community members like myself) can answer any questions you have.  Plus we talk about lots of other things as well beyond the game!


I try to monitor this page, however I don't get notifications or anything for it so I sometimes miss things! 

Yep!!!!  Oh man, I really, really hope you get enough interest.  I *LOVED* TROS and even made another otome friend buy it recently, though she hasn't played it yet because she has like... every VN on steam and is slowly working through her back log LOL

Fingers crossed for you guys!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, yes, yes!  I'd love this so much.

They've had to take it down for now, an announcement is incoming.

You can get the most recent updates at their blog - https://ladsindistress.tumblr.com/

As everyone involved works full time or is a student, progress is a bit slow.  Some have projects of their own (aside from TMK).


TMK has been cancelled as the leader of the studio suddenly shut everything down, the lead writer (who also writes for LiD) apparently didn't have any say in the decision.  It was all rather sudden.  LiD shares some of the same creators, but operates under a different studio, so it is still planned to be finished and free as promise, though there is no specific timeline at the moment as to when.  However, there is expected to be an update/announcement over the next few weeks.

Ahhh!!!! As a bi girl can I just say how grateful I am you added that in?  Charlotte ended up being tied for my fave route and I loved her cgs a lot. 

Both of your games that I've played have done AMAZING at representing gXg relationships.  Not shying away from some of the unique difficulties we face, but never making it feel like all there is to the route/relationship is the ~~forbiddeness~~ of it.  You made Sophia, Charlotte, and Bridgette (from DDBS) route's feel every bit as human and genuine as all of the boys, and for that you've earned a permanent fan from me.  I'm working on a review to post in lemmasoft forum as well, but I saw this comment and just absolutely needed to get out my appreciation for how you've handled all of this right now.

Thank you so much!!!!

I'll definitely be voting for a sequel too, dying to see how you family handles your decisions, particularly your elopement with Bastien XD

lol me too.  If you can't tell by my icon xD

Yay!!!! 2 more days!

Of course! 

They are hoping to release their commercial game (The Masquerade Killer) sometime in Q3/4 of 2018, after that they will continue work on LiD.  It's going to be a bit of a wait basically, but I'm sure it will be worth it!  And I recommend checking out the writer/artists other games in the mean time, Red String of Fate, Airis, and The Masquerade Killer.

Can't wait, good luck!!!!!

Looking forward to it!!!

Thank you!!!!


I'm... not great with clues so watch me have tried to use all the wrong races for the wrong characters without this LOL

Ooh so it's race locked?  Can we ask which races can romance which characters or is that too spoilery?



Ahhh!  Love the Bastien CG.  Looking forward to this game :)

Looks like it's all working now, thanks so much!!

I will!  Thanks again :)

Will do, thanks so much for your help!

Just got to the part with the discussion with Connor (no idea whose route I'm on...) and the night before when we're going to try and speak with the captain about the mysterious happenings, when I got this error:

Trying to ignore the error brings me back to the start menu and quitting and restarting doesn't seem to do anything either, any ideas?


I deleted the demo from my computer so this should be the full version as far as I can tell.

Got about 5 minutes through the demo before I made up my mind to buy it.  The writing is excellent, and the character art (particularly Bridgette and MC) is adorable.  

Am looking forward to playing it after work tomorrow or this weekend, and for any future games of yours.

Of course! :)
