Story:
You find yourself in a world where magic is a common sight, dragons are rare but exist, spirits roam the lands and people's souls hold a lot more potential than one might expect.

The player follows the predicament of Mariko Blairnot, a young woman who finds herself trapped in an eerie mansion with five other people who claim to have no recollection of their past. Mariko herself can only remember scattered bits and pieces of an event that supposedly happened years ago, involving the death of her mother and the appearance of a mysterious stranger who offered his help to her and her closest dragon companion, Isshin. With both of them nowhere to be seen inside of the mansion, Mariko and the rest of the cast investigate their surroundings, only to find more questions with no answers.

When someone comes up with a way that could help in getting their memories back, Mariko is presented with the option to pair up with someone for the experiment.

Who will you trust?


Estimated release date for the full version of the game: Q4 2016

It's finally December~

I had to create this account just to tell you that I look forward to whenever the game gets released. The game looks very well made from what I've seen in the demo. I can't wait to find out more about the story too.

Good luck and thank you for your efforts! ^^

Time flies so fast! But yes, we'll be doing our best to release it before holidays come, so please look forward to it. :) I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the demo, thank you for playing! And thank you for going through the effort, we appreciate it! ^^ It's always great to hear what the players think!

just finished the demo, it definitely grabs your attention and the way it ends and the story it's telling really makes you wanna play more, i like the characters and the potential they all have, looking forward to december or whenever its release is. Glad to have come across this VN :)

The game looks amazing! I played the demo and I can't wait for the full version. btw when is the full version coming out? Can't wait for it.

Thank you for playing, I'm glad you liked it! ^^

We're currently finishing the game and getting the necessary paperwork done. We're planning to release it around the end of November/early December.

And the last video, finishing out the demo, Can;t wait for the full game!



Thank you for playing!

Here's the second video from the playthrough! Loving the story and mystery. Also, sorry for the dumb name I gave her. Lol.



Thank you for playing, I'm glad you're enjoying the demo so far! Miss Ponytale McGee will stay forever in our hearts! ;)

Just finished playing this demo, and I must say I love it! The art is gorgeous and even if it isn't original, the music suits the mood very well. And of course... the story! The concept is so awesome! I just can't wait to know more about it!

I'm wondering if the last romance option to be revealed will be Isshin somehow - it would be great!

To be honest, the ending of the demo was a bit frustrating. I understand you'd end it there, since I guess the branching begins at that point, but still... I'm genuinely curious about how the card thing plays itself. Do you always get the best result and choose first, or do you actually pick any card and can be chosen by whoever likes you most for example. I'm almost more curious about the mechanics of this part than anything else right now haha!

As for now, I think Isshin is my favorite character, even with such a short screen time (if I can even call that "screen" time since you can't actually see him on screen!). As for the revealed romance options, I like Marco the most.

Thank you for playing! I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the demo! ^^

Sadly, I can't say anything about the 7th romance option nor about the card drawing sequence since both of those things are spoiler territory. The full version of the game will hold an answer those questions.

I'm also happy to hear that Isshin and Marco got to your liking! ^^ I put a lot of thought into the story and the characters themselves, so I'm always flattered to hear such kind words regarding either.

- Nayru

Haha, don't worry, even if I say I'd love to know about the cards or the last romance, I don't want to be spoiled either - the wait will make the the moment I'll discover it even sweeter, once the game will be out!

In the meantime, I'll probably replay the demo and try other answers!
