A sweet, subtle idea. Love the art style!

Thanks! Don't worry, we aren't planning to replace any of Odd Lazdo's lovely original art from the demo. The plan is to stick as closely to the look and feel of the existing art as is humanly possible. :) 

Thank you so much for your offer! I've got a few potential artists lined up now, so maybe wait before reaching out to your friends, but if we need more help after all I will let you know!

Thank you so much! It means the world to me that people like you are willing to help out and support this game even now. Some things are happening behind the scenes; hopefully I will be able to share another update sometime soon!

Thank you so much! It's heartening to know people are still keeping an eye out for it and still care; it's been a long road, but eventually, the full version will be completed. :)

Thank you! If you'd like to try it a little early, beta testing signups are now open. :) See here for more info:

A happy surprise, I hope. :) And thanks!

PS: I featured this game in a recent post on my blog about Rome-inspired games. :)

Love the art style! I recently featured this game in a post on my blog about Rome-related games. :)

This seems pretty cool... so I featured it on my blog. :) Keep up the good work! 

This game looks so beautiful! I hope the full version eventually gets released. (Although speaking as someone who also made a 2019 NaNoRenO game that isn't finished yet, I totally understand why it's not out yet, lol. Good luck!)

Thanks!! :D 

Perfect, thanks for the recommendation! Enjoy the break; you definitely deserve it. :)

I'm always up for a good witchy narrative, especially one with nice visuals to boot. :) I very much appreciate the player character options in the beginning! We don't see enough of that in VNs, I think. I haven't played the full game yet, but I hope to soon!

(PS: I gave your game a shout-out on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

I've only played a little bit so far, but this seems like a lovely little fairy tale to get lost in for a while. The art and especially the sprites are so well done. Congrats on such a great start to your first game--and for completing it in time for NaNo, on top of that!

(PS: I gave your game a shout-out on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

I love a good original concept. Especially one as surreal and philosophical as this. It's so nice to see something so different amid all the classic anime-style VNs (not that I don't have a soft spot in my heart for those, too!). I haven't played all of this yet, but the beginning seemed very promising. :)

(PS: I featured this entry on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

No comments yet? Wha?

I am so intrigued by this game. I only played a bit of the beginning so far, but I already have so many questions. What was Audra talking to the professor about? What's Mallory's deal? Is she going to turn out to be the Homura Akemi of this story? And what is the something stalking Iris?

As a former (failed) art student, I don't mind the setting one bit, either. Looking forward to playing the rest, eventually!

(PS: I featured this entry on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

I haven't played through the full story yet, but you had me at ridiculously cutesy and hilarious. I'm getting strong Ouran High School Host Club vibes here—specifically of the Lobelia Academy variety. And I don't mind it one bit. :)

(PS: I featured this entry on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

This was such a sweet little story, very enjoyable to experience. And the art is lovely! I never expected to ship a deer and a bear, but here I am, way, WAY out at sea. :P

(PS: I gave this entry a shout-out on my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight. :) )

How does this game not have any comments yet??

I've only played a few minutes so far—just long enough to reach the research station—but I already felt the dread sinking in. The concept, from what I can tell, seems very reminiscent of Jeff Vandermeer's Southern Reach trilogy (or maybe just the Annihilation movie?), but that's not a bad thing in my books. 

I look forward to playing the rest eventually... once I get my courage up. :)

(PS: This was one of my top features for my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out!)

I've only played a few minutes so far, but color me VERY intrigued. :) The art direction here seems very on point, and these characters seem like a fun bunch to spend a few hours with. I look forward to playing the rest, hopefully soon.

(This game actually wound up being one of my top picks for my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight. Congrats on completing the game jam--and with such a polished entry, too!)

This game looks SO lovely, like something out of a storybook. The writing seems great so far, too. It definitely stood out for me among all the great NaNo entries this year. I haven't played the full thing yet, but I am very much looking forward to doing so. (I also REALLY appreciate your disclaimer that there are no on-screen animal deaths. Seriously, thank you for that! :) )

PS: I actually featured this as one of my top picks for my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out. :)

So I haven't played the full thing yet, but I felt drawn to it right away. I absolutely love the art and the writing style, and even though I've only just met Jonas and Fennel (and haven't even seen Poppy yet!) I'm officially hooked. It's hard to make a man with a teacup for a head attractive, but somehow, you pulled it off. I am so looking forward to playing more... and am already hoping to see more of this (or at least more like this) from your team in the future!

(PS: This game wound up being one of my top picks for my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight. :) )

I played the demo and fell in love... despite never having watched/read any Lupin III yet (shameful, I know!). The art is SO beautiful and the demo had me cracking a smile almost immediately. I am very much looking forward to playing the full game, hopefully soon. :)

This game was actually my top feature in my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out. (Feel free to share it as well! :) )

Your pain is all too familiar to me. (: But as others before me have already said, the time and effort your team is spending on getting this project to where it needs to be for a proper release is much appreciated. And we'll all be here to hit "Download" the day it comes out--no matter what day that is. :)

I'm glad you think so! Progress has been slow for awhile, but we ARE still working on TDLF, and I am still very much looking forward to releasing it sometime in the nearish future. Thank you for your support! :)

So exciting! I am looking forward so much to seeing how the rest of this story plays out. :)

Thank you so, so much for your kind feedback and support! I'm glad you're enjoying the demo so much. :) Progress is still being made but we are definitely not rushing anything, haha.

While you wait, if you haven't already, you can check out our other games if you like! Saucy Suitors is Odd Lazdo's lighthearted WIP about personified condiments, and The Harbinger's Head is another, darker fantasy game of mine that takes place in a mythical 19th century Ireland. :)

Take care!

Thank you! :)

Odd Lazdo and I would be honored to add our game to the list. :)

Me too. :)

Wonderful! Will do. :D

I started watching this game on Markiplier's channel, but about five minutes into his playthrough, I hit pause and ran to my computer to play it before I spoiled the entire experience for myself. And I'm so glad I did. SUCH CHILLS. MUCH CREEPINESS.

This is such an excellent example of the impact text-based horror can have and such a great use of a demo. I am hooked and will definitely be keeping an eye out for the full release of the game. I would also love to maybe do an interview with your team sometime close to the full game launch if you'd be willing to spare a bit of your time. :)

In any case, good luck with development! I look forward to seeing how the final version turns out.

Thank you so much for your feedback and for featuring our game on your channel! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and we are both happy to hear that you liked both the writing and the art. I just wish I could speak Russian so that I could follow along better with your video! It was really cool to listen to you translate anyway; I love how Tashka's name sounds in Russian. XD

The full release is still in progress, so keep an eye out for that--hopefully it will be out later this year. I hope you find the rest of the game as much fun as the demo. :)

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the demo! 😊

Absolutely! It's taking longer than I initially projected to complete, but I am still hopeful that we will be able to release it later this year. I plan to post an update about it soon. Thanks for asking! :)

Thank you!! ♡ Probably not right away, but it is certainly something I would like to do. :)

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it so far. We'll do our best not to disappoint. :)

Thank you for your feedback and for the mention in your video! We really appreciate it. Hopefully the rest of the game will be worth the wait! :)

Thank you so much for your update and your playthrough and all your kind words! It was very entertaining (and very helpful!). You are correct; I did all the writing and Odd Lazdo did all the art. :) Some things I wanted to note:

1. It seems like you had some trouble with the game going back and repeating dialogue or choices. It's hard to tell (I've been watching on my phone) but this may have been caused by clicking too far to the left side or, if you have a mouse scroll wheel, maybe accidentally scrolling backward? In any case, I will definitely make sure to keep an eye out for that when we test before releasing the full game. 

2. That same issue is probably what misled you during that choice of how to convince the dragon not to kill you. All of those choices were possible, and none should have led you back to the list of options. I'm guessing it was simply a case of the game going back by mistake... but again, something I will watch out for when testing.

3. And yes, there WILL be multiple endings. Your choices will absolutely affect the outcome of Marius and Tashka's story. I'm in the process of drafting the rest of the game now! With any luck, it will be out a little later this year. :)

In the meantime, you may want to check out our other games, too! Odd Lazdo has a free demo of her game, Saucy Suitors, on itch, and my text-only interactive fiction game, The Harbinger's Head, was published by Hosted Games last year and is available on multiple platforms, including mobile, for just a few bucks. That one also has multiple endings. :)

Anywho, thank you again! I'm so glad you enjoyed our demo, and I hope the full game lives up to your expectations. :D
