As someone who has finally published only the demo of their own game and understands just how difficult that alone was, I honestly don't even care about the price increase because I love this game and your team regardless. All I'm saying is that I'm ex-ci-ted and we're all here for it!

Thank you for going out of your way to comment! And I'm so happy that you've already got a favourite ;) And yes, I did write the script and did the art myself, although please read the disclaimer to know more about that if you wish to!

Thank you for commenting! I'm so glad that you found it interesting! The characters are harsh because of their origins, and because of how they've had to adapt and overcome to be where they are now. They're all not mean at heart, I swear, including Elior XD When the rest of the game comes out, you'll see then! I'm happy that you could relate to him!

Your comment especially means a lot, considering we go back and I also love your game!! xD Unfortunately as I've stated before, it's gonna be depressing at times because the MC is depressed, so it really depends on the player if they want to go through the motions or not. I'll let you ponder about the metaphors because I don't want to spoil anything myself, I hope you enjoy the rest of the Demo :)

Thank you for commenting! Please try again, it should work this time. If not, let me know and I can change it to brower playable while I fix it.

I'm definitely thrilled that I managed to hook you in long enough for you to play the whole demo! 100/10 stars is too much, I'm so glad you liked it! I'm working on the rest of the game, so please stay around long enough for when the next chapters are released!

I also suffer with a depression and anxiety disorder, and I'm sorry that we relate as much as we do to each other. It was because of the lack of media into our world that I couldn't hold back when I was describing certain scenarios, because it's like you said, it's difficult to explain to others what it's really like. That's why I wanted to show an experience rather than just describe it, in a visual novel. I'm so touched to hear your opinion, and I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the game when it's out! Take care of yourself :)

I'm glad you liked it! There aren't too many types of visual novels like this that focus on mental health, and with how the world is right now, I wanted to release it. I sincerely appreciate your comment, and hope that you maybe come back for the next update :)

I hope you're doing well. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. And I also hope that you'll stick around long enough for when the next chapters are released!

Thank you for taking the time to play the Demo! As stated in the description above, I've written the MC to have both anxiety and depression. So while this is a a chance for players to romance a character, it's also a story that focuses a lot on mental health and self love. I hope you can empathise with this, and understand.

A contempory-fantasy romance visual novel set in an alternate, dystopian realm. 

If you're interested in the following, such as urban fantasies, attractive characters with sombre back-stories which make them all the more appealing, revolts against corrupt governments and maybe a little bit of sexual tension, then I'm right with you. Welcome to the cliché side of visual novels, but this time, I'm going to add a bit of spice. Throw in a depressed MC, whose name and gender is customisable, as well a flare of equally, mentally ill characters amongst a team of vigilantes in a fabricated realm, and you have VivaCity baby.



With the demo being roughly 20,000-25,000 words long, enjoy around an hour's playthrough of this demo, depending on how fast you read. Come and face your truth.

i couldn't get past the customisation. i would've had a lot of fun if not for a particular slur on a helmet :(

my friend and i just played this together, btw we're typing this simultaneously. i really like the character interactions; they feel truer to life. plus the story is so unique to any other itch.io games that i've played. i can't believe you ended the first act where you did. which means that i'll be keeping an even closer eye on the game than usual. 


how could you do this to us. also did i mention that i love this game so far :)

play this first man. total mind change. appreciate the flex of it all.

Just saying, my friend and I lucy aka bitchesman played this together, and we're absolutely gutted that we finished part 1 already :( we love it so much not even kidding. the humor, the characters, the subtle jump scares? Hell yeah! we love it all man, and we literally cannot wait for when the next part comes out, because WE. ARE. HOOKED. and we'll wait for how ever long it takes for you guys to make it happen :)

you flirt with whoever for the first few chapters to get a better feel of their personalities, so yes you can flirt with them all technically. Then in/after chapter 4 you get the option to pick a romance route for only one character. You also get the option to enter into a poly relationship with more than one character (I think) like if you choose Alkar's route, since him and Omen are close you can enter into a relationship with both of them.
