Due to limited time and un-compatible voices (I'm looking for Indonesian voice actors unfortunately u.u) I decided to not include voices in any of my games. At most, there would be only chuckles/laughs/sighs.

lol no problem at all ivyThesaurus x'D thanks for dropping by and ask!
That is just Tamara and her awful sense of rhyme. Really :")) she thought 'no strength to figHT because of an empty stomaCH" those two sounds similar in a forced way lol.
No at all!
I also have a complicated feeling about this x'D imagine my surprise when I saw him pop out as 1st lol ah well, in the end it's all fair game ~ in another perspective, my boys won 1st and 2nd! Sadly, no one draw Reksa. I guess its too hard to draw this darling ><
Hi Violette! Yep, you're going to get 2 keys x'D
Mouratille, right? The first time you pledge was at 11th July 2017 and I will send the keys to your email in the future when it's finished ~
I will also send you a wallpaper as a bonus x'D you remind me of myself -I also forgot easily and have a goldfish memory!
Hi triquester! Thanks for visiting & giving me constructive suggestions!
I'm really happy to hear you like the demo *SPOILER ALERT* -especially when I heard about how similar Philipine is with Indonesia x'D I've been to Penang with my friends once for an anime event (um, like AFAID but smaller?) And I did notice the pigeons! I didn't know you have a similar game like Congklak though so this is really interesting!
I also like your suggestions about leaving a note or two about the hidden footnote (colored text). I think I will put it at the start of the game as a reminder or when the first colored text appeared.
Oh, and don't worry about the casual status raising ~ it won't be used for a whole year, I predict it would be used only until you reach the village in Autumn Area (4 or 5 months at most I think. The script is still at Summer area so this could still change ><)
After that, you will enter a bachelor's route. A lot of things will happen in the meantime. I just hope the programming will go smoothly x'D if anything changes, I will surely tell you through the weekly updates~
Lastly, lol, yes I noticed that Arya felt similar to Reksa, but eh, you'll see :'p meanwhile, Guntur seemed to get most of the votes this time! And thank you for giving Kahlil a chance too <3
You're always welcome to leave some comments below -I love reading them but forgive me if sometimes it took awhile before I reply ><
See you again!
Hi Sora Album!
First of all, let me apologize for this very late reply Q_Q I often forgot to take a look at my itch.io notification. However, I'm really thankful for you to show me the bugs in Winged Ones!
I will definitely fix Asih's sprite + Rama's final CG -it's really intriguing o.o I thought I already reset the CG album but I guess I missed one!
1. Aww thank you! Believe me, I was trying to be as fair as possible & not bias to my babies x'D gotta say that Mitra's route IS the most light-hearted and sweet though. I was experimenting a little you see; Rama's route is complex/hardest, Reksa's is medium, while Mitra is the easy/light-hearted one. I was trying to see which one people likes more :'3 and if my story telling is good enough for all 3 types.
I'm also happy to hear you feel connected to Rama & motivated by his development! *hugs & kisses to you hun, for pulling through that phase!* He definitely needs more love and I was trying to potray depression; to make other people understand how it feels/looks like.
and lol, Yuda sure is more popular than I thought x'D sadly, Asih is already beside him </3 *slapped by Asih along with you*cough*
2. Amen! I also hope to bring more Indonesian culture in the future x'D
3. Aww now you're making me blush >////< I still have lots to learn & improve, but I'll do my best so you won't be disappointed!
4. Yup, noted! I will fix & re-upload the files once my internet stops PMS-ing. I swear it's getting worse when rainy season arrives u.u;
5. No problem at all! I have received your love and thoughts -which is already precious enough to me :'3 good luck with college! stay strong and do things one by one & you'll be surely finished with final project!
See you again in the future!
Waaah, so sorry for this late reply ><;
Hi CuriousCat and Planet Bekasi! *high five*
I'm so excited to see fellow Indonesian creator! -and yes, you have no idea how much I worried about how people will receive my story x'D After all, there is little to no visual novels that implements Indonesian cultures. But thankfully, the people here have big hearts and the warm welcome astounds me! Be confident with your own story and just do it! x'D yes, people will give you critiques/comments, but as long as it's interesting & you did your best, there will be no regrets!
And lol, Yuda is certainly a good name x'D I spent quite a lot of time browsing javanese names + asking my friends lol
As for Wayang... sadly, I haven't had the chance to watch Wayang so I have no idea what it is about :')) if I do and find something good, I might try and implement it lol -but of course, we must find a good way to tell the readers!
I'm really interested to hear your thoughts so l'lll wait patiently until you finish all the routes :'3
See you again!
Hi vnlover! Thanks for your enthusiasm x'D I see Reksa strikes again hahah
I still have a lot to learn and improve but I'm very happy to hear you like my art & story QuQ
Take your time finishing it & I hope you enjoy it thoroughly until the end!
Hope to see you again,
Hi triquester! Thanks for visiting and telling me your thought!
I'm really happy to hear you finished all routes & enjoyed yourself ^///^ I was quite worried since I'm still learning how to mix Indonesian cultures with Fantasy, but gosh, I was so relieved by your warm welcome!
My next project (Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle) also have Indonesian cultures, but this one will be more complex since I'm assimilating it with fantasy AND another culture. If you're still interested in the future, please give it a try and tell me if I'm doing good or not.
Thanks again and hope to see you again!
Thanks for the enthusiasm Emmaeow <3 I'm really flattered to hear you love it enough to play the demo 3 times >////<
If nothing goes wrong & my muse cooperates, I think it will be finished around June 2018. Hopefully, you're willing to wait patiently :'3
Hi! It really depends on your reading speed >< It's definitely longer than Winged Ones though; the total of Bermuda's demo word count is 48k+ words while Winged Ones' demo is only around 19.5k+ words. So just double the amount of time you use to read WInged Ones' demo x')
You're welcome komaekabane!
I'm so happy to hear you remembered about WInged Ones even though you played it a long time ago!
Reksa's route is pretty quiet when you first meet him so I understand your 'frustration' about not interacting enough with him & wanting to talk to him more than to the other characters x'D
Again, you're welcome & I'm so very happy to see people still coming & dropping a few comments here and there giving me your support & warm encouragements! It's what pushing me to go forward :'3
Hi & thanks, SoraAlbum! X'D
I'm so happy to see you back and give Bermuda a try! There's nothing that makes me more happier than to see old players <3
This one is still a long way to go before completion so take your time ~
Ah I almost forgot *SPOILER ALERT*
As for why the Goddess chose Tamara... hmm... this actually will be explained later in my 2nd project; Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle, but I'll do my best to explain while keeping it spoiler-less as much as I could.
It has something to do with her personality, traits -everything that defines her and most importantly, She chose her because she is an outsider -someone who doesn't have a real link to Her 'world'; who can change the future posibilities & fix the problem the Goddess created Herself. No one is able to touch the Pink Crystal besides Tamara and her chosen one remember? Because She cannot directly interfere with fate and that's why She needs some help from 'outside'.
Um... do I explain well? I sometimes have a hard time with how to explain this particular element ^^;; as I said, more information will be explained in my 2nd project; Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle. It will explain the whole island's history & I think you will understand better after you play it in the future. I'm in the middle of making it now ~
Thanks for visiting and giving me your honest comment! I'm really happy when I read it ^.^- now, I will do my best to answer your questions -*SPOILER ALERT*-
1. I'm always glad to hear people giving their effort & time to read all the routes, so thank you -and WOW, just 24 hours? O.o you read fast! Did you skip sleep? Take care of your health! ><
2. Hahahah, glad to hear Mitra grew on you, dear <3 his omoed-omoedan event is also one of my favourites! It was so much fun writing it ^^- and yes, in Reksa's route we are encouraged to break some rules since the circumstance is the Komodos are the Avians' enemy and Tamara couldn't afford to tell anyone that she is helping the said enemy >< and yep, Rama's story managed to shock the majority of readers *happy dance*
As for the slim proportion, I'm sad to say that I haven't seen any real-life Indonesian guy who is buff/at least lithe with enough muscles to use as references... OTL a lot of the guys over here is skinny so it might affect my art even though I have photos references by my side.
I'm flattered to hear you think my writing-style is good >\\\< I still have a lot to learn though since I still have loopholes here and there -which you pointed out some x'D I will definitely work hard to improve it!
3. And thank you for liking Asih's design! She is one of the first designs I finished. As for Tamara's I was trying to make her pop up with her blue hair *cough* but I learned my lesson since some of my friends also said she looked unnatural ><
As for her dream, it was a dream sent by Ayu. She was illsutrating Rama's past mentality, where he was suffering & in his mind, people were laughing & ridiculibg him. In the last sequence where there is a loud CRACK, it was the time where he attempted his last suicide. Yep, I got a lot of questions about this & I took notes that I need to be more clear about this ><
Ah and of course, the timeline issue where some event about another bachelor pop out when you're inside another bachelor's route. I'm still trying to figure this out to be honest. I sometimes mixed them ><;; I thought it would be okay to get people read more about Rama since; Tamara basically lived in the village, so she would spend some time with him. At least, she would feel the need to try and help Rama out when he suddenly 'caged' himself and not eating. Welp, at least that was what I thought but then again, yeah, if might be weird to do that if you're not close to him. So this is an error from me maybe? Hmm... I will be more careful next time!
As for the women condition... in Indonesian past tradition (still is actually depending on which area where you live), women tend to be a housewife where the one who work and has a career is the husband. Despite Tamara's heritage(half British, half Indonesian), she grew and live in Indonesia since birth so she already knew about this and thought it is normal since she doesn't really have any ambition besides getting away from her uncle. This past about her and her uncle's family is not pretty, hence she grabbed at the first chance she got to move away. At Mitra & Rama's routes, the circumstances & mood affect her to tell them about it. In Reksa's route, she simply locked the memory deep within her heart & moved on because she felt like she doesn't need to tell him about it since she has decided to stay. She was also too busy helping him, keeping him a secret, following him to the village, war, etc so I think it's logical to say the thought never occured to her? X'D hahahh at least that was what I think.
Ah and about the story too 'cuty' despite the mature theme... *cough* Indonesian tradition is about keeping your virtue until wedding night so.... yup, not gonna go too far from kissing x'D hahahah (I'm also too embarassed to write them *cough*)
5. Thank you for your support!
I hope my answers satisfy you? >\\\< I really enjoyed reading your comment & replying them -sorry for the text wall though O.O;
This will greatly help me to revise & polish my 2nd project! timeline & managing the small events are my deepest concern besides the programming, but I will do my best to improve!
Hope to see you again,
Nope, I only saw Dream Daddy briefly in youtube by ManlyBadassHero, so I don't know the specifics yet ><
It's another new VN that came out this year, but I won't tell you which~ maybe it has something to do with my tastes
Hi Rinaria! Glad to hear you like the demo & all the guys >\\\\<
the final version will be $15, unless you want to buy a early bird pack($10) via my paypal shop (go to my indiegogo page & click on the paypal button below info. There is still some left ~)
Thanks, KimYuki <3
The campaign had also ended not long ago x'D good to see you back though!
It will be quite far in the future until this little one is finished due to the planned script is very long, but stay tuned!
Ah, you mean the fade in & fade out effect? O.O;
I didn't know that background flashes are bad for epilepsy or other neurological conditions >< I'm very sorry for the discomfort you experienced u.u; sadly, I haven't learned how to make a button to turn it of yet.
My tip is that maybe you can click it fast when the background started to flash? It will skip it immediately and if you miss something, you can roll back with your mouse >< that's the best I can say for now, sorry Yukiko!
I'm glad to hear you like both of my babies! X'D and yes! I've been watching musicals for awhile now and couldn't stop myself from quoting some :")) they're so fun! I wish I can find more of them with good english subtitle :'D
Hope to see you around!
I have just added a link to my paypal shop in the game info so feel free to pre-order via paypal :"3
Currently, I'm not sure how much a pre-order should cost and how it works here in itch.io >< will it record your data automatically or not? Should I make a list to send you the itch.io keys later or what? Since I'm not sure, I will hold it off for now...
Pssst, there are still early bird packs left in my paypal shop ^.^-
Hahahah, I was a gamer but I somehow managed to hold them off x'D now, I'm addicted to reading and it relapsed once I found a good novel lol!
And no worries! You're already helping by letting me know how much you care :"3
Hi CazCatra! Thanks for visiting and telling me your thoughts! ^.^- I'm very happy to hear you like ny writing & art-style -and yes! I already started my 2nd project called; Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle. It's a brand new story but set in the same world, albeit with a wider horizon. Fair warning, this one has darker theme than Winged Ones >< It's also going to be A LOT longer so I decided it to be commercial.
The campaign has ended but you can still pre-order via my paypal shop :"3 (see game page for more info ~)
As for your other question:
At first, I use Novelty, it's a great software for beginner programmer because it's more like drag and click rather than typing the program, but sadly, it's still in beta version and I think the creator dropped it u.u
Next, I use Ren'Py and although it's more difficult, it's free and it's like a magic item once you understand its functions x')
And take your time buying it if you want to ~ the completion of Bermuda is still far in the future :"D until then, maybe keep up with the weekly update!
Hope to see you around~

WARNINGS: swearing, blood, death, psychological, and a little gore Rating: 16+
In 20XX, an enormous earthquake shook the world and caused a triangular crater to suddenly appear in the middle of Bermuda Triangle. The world was aghast with this discovery; even more so when scout teams discovered an ‘invisible wall’ around it, preventing further investigation. As if it wasn’t enough, spiritual events also increased all over the world after this phenomenon occurred.
Our heroine, Maya (19), was a young adult who was busy earning her living so this kind of event was of little importance aside from adding an exciting spice into her life. But then her world crumbled when a Goddess came and announced that her family would die in a car accident in the near future.
The Goddess offered Maya a deal: She would alter her family’s fate in exchange for closing the Bermuda Crater. To do that, Maya would have to go to a place called Forgotten Isles, find what caused it, and look for a solution.
If she agreed, three men will accompany her, acting as bodyguards. Apparently, they each have their own circumstances and a wish to be granted.
Here's our rename-able Heroine -And many more! x'D
Background & GUI Samples:
The warm welcome I received for Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones pushed me to make more visual novels with Indonesian elements in it. Please take note that Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle is NOT a sequel of Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones. It is set in the same world, but it will be in a wider horizon and a brand new story.
I really didn't expect myself to jump head first into becoming a visual novel developer since I didn't know a thing about programming 3 years ago, but who knew! After a trial of errors and tears, I feel that Ren'Py now is like a magic item which allows me to create a whole new world!

Questions for you:
1. Which character caught your attention the most?
2. What do you expect to see in Bermuda?
3. Will you guys be happy if I add a route to romance the antagonist? xD
4. Feel free to give suggestion/critiques :'3
I will update once every Monday in lemmasoft forum/facebook fanpage/tumblr/itch.io <3
Oh, I also opened a Patreon: there will be more sneak peeks, step by step WIPs of my backgrounds, behind the scenes, and even a spot for beta-testing without strings attached if you want!
I hope to see you around!
Thanks for playing and telling me your thoughts! Whoa, you're a fast reader O_O finished them all in one day! I hope you didn't sacrifice your sleep hours >< of course, I'm very happy to hear you love my work, but don't push yourself too hard, ok? X'D
Bermuda is not really a sequel, but yup, there are tid bits of Winged Ones in it lol.
Have fun and don't forget to take a rest! X'D
I'm really happy to hear I inspire you to make your own visual novel! >\\\< I believe that anyone can do ot given the time & effort.
And yes! Feel free to ask me anything ^.^- I suggest to try and experiment with Renpy first though. It's a lot more convenient & efficient since I can't be there to show you directly.
At first, try simple things like; changing title screen's background, how to insert your own sprites in game, and customize the textbox/GUI!
Ren'py is really famous in lemmasoft forum so you can find lots of tutorials there! You can google 'lemmasoft how to customize GUI' and it will pop out x'D I spend a lot of time here trying things through errors & trials.
It's also OK if you want to ask me about what art assets needed to make a VN ^_^)b
Hi, Sydsterino !
And I feel you there x'D I also personally don't like to play games that is not completed yet -but I hope you stay tuned with the updates! It will be finished before you know it :'3
See you in the future!
Wow, I can't believe you make youtube video for Bermuda :'D I mean, already? and you're a guy! *criesinhappiness* -no offence but not many guys play my VNs since they're otome :'D thank you so much for giving your effort into this video! *hugs*
dan makasiih! sy masi blm seberapa & msi bnyk yg bs d improve tp sy psti akn trus berjuang biar bs lbh bgus lg >< stay tuned sm update"ny d Indiegogo & hope to see you again!
Thanks & welcome back jordanyak! x'D
And yes, Winged Ones was made with my old laptop -the color balance in my old laptop is different with my current laptop so I guess it alters my art a little >< This is also the first time I try a status raising system -but I'm glad to hear you still love it though!
Meanwhile, Guntur is gaining more fans lol. As for Kahlil & Arya... hmm, I've just realized this recently, but does Arya fit into the stereotype of grumpy werewolf? x'D lol but don't worry, I have things planned for them *evil laugh*cough*
And YAY! Thanks for supporting!
Stay tuned with the weekly updates & it will be finished before we know it!
P.S. lol, the tid bits about Winged Ones is a bonus for my old fans x'D glad you like them!
P.P.S. Ahh, I forgot to remove that screenshot x_x; that feature is from the old version of Winged Ones. It used Novelty, not Ren'Py and I have only just learned how to do that with Ren'Py now ><
