Why is there no skip option?!? It means slowmoding when you want to skip text or you accidentally make choices.

creators probs dead ngl

Hi i want to ask when we can play more i really love this game and wish for the next chapter. :)

(1 edit)

hey chief seems like frequent updates are not your thing ( not being rude) but can you at least listen to a bug i keep running into right after i beat the living sentience kobold ( side note kobolds are the best nice job adding them in ) i get the whole " blah blah blah almost done training hard " then i immediately get a game over there a fix or nah?  

i think he's dead 

Hi! Can i ask you if the game will be released on Steam?

I am starting the game and I found an error in certain parts of the map the screen does not follow the player. match the map with a game that is youtube and the map is not complete someone else has this error?

This is amazing! I love it so much! Ah! I'm so excited to see this finished and I hope I'd be able to support you somehow seeing as you're doing my poor student ass a miracle foe making such a professional looking game free. And it really does look and feel like a professional indie game, the fact you're a one man army amazes me! Good luck, I'm cheering you on!

Holy heck it has been eight months since I last commented! Time sure does fly by fast. A lot has happened since then especially in the past couple of months. I hope you are doing well and are still working hard despite the near apocalypse that is outside. I look forward to seeing how this game evolves, keep up your incredible work and stay healthy and safe man! 

Game looks great.  However it crashes every 10-15 minutes. Any recommendations?   The debug txt file was "[0617/222804.423:ERROR:http_transport_win.cc(175)] WinHttpCrackUrl: The URL does not use a recognized protocol (0x2ee6)"



So far i've been enjoying your game. I'm only up to the second quest right now, but I've noticed a few glitches that I thought I should mention. First off there is the girl with the black and white hair, her spirit seems to distort every few seonds, I'm not sure if that was intentional on account of her possesion, but felt I should mention it in case it wasn't. I have experienced a fair number of crashes at random times but I'm not sure what the cause for that is. Twice I got some sort of error message when it occured, but didn't think to get a screen shot at those times. I try to the next time it comes up. Finially I get stuck in a loop if I talk to Kuro in the church in potter city. As soon as I try to end the conversation it starts back up again, even if I hit the cancel button only. The only way I can get out of it is to restart the game

hi there first of all love the game and great job theres this bug that when im coming back from getting the herbs for a sick woman at the start of the game that when i go into the academy it just restarts the ceremony all over again just wanted to let you peeps know

Theres a bug where after U turn in ur first quest and go to the church and talk to kuro ur stuck in an infintie loop of talking and u get trapped forever(until u leave the game)


well that's shitty, I've had this bug back before I finished the game and that was months ago. I think the creator is working on not only fixing that bug, among many others reported about 89 days ago, but also adding to the chapter for us.

bottom line, it shouldn't be an issue in the next patch :D

It keeps on crashing every 10 minutes :{ 

I found a bug. During the part of the game where you conduct an investigation and try to get alibis from the characters. There are two characters upstairs with rooms next to each other and both names I forgot.If you walk into either of their rooms and immediately walk backwards, you will be able to get out of the map.

Hey, sorry but i believe that there are a few bugs that really troubled me ; u ; During the first few days after the Academy entrance, I talked to Kuro and tried to walk away but no matter what I tried there seems to be an error the scene repeat endlessly. And during the crime scene investigation quest, I happened to find the rune and investigate the crime scene before talking to Myrana so I had to repeat the entire section again. Anyway, I had a blast playing this game, it's rare to come across an RPG game with this much dedication :D Keep working hard and good luck!

hey chief could you add the ability to use the wasd key?

Prince Kyrios is so fkin annoyin! If i end up having to help him oh i am SO going to find something to use against him… Both Prince Kyrios and Princess Katelyn are not fit to rule. The princess is too sweet, too trusting, and too naive. The prince is too impulsive, rebellious, and self serving.

I’m really hope to become allies with Princess Lily and then have her rise to power, Hopefully she’ll be better fit to rule, Otherwise everything is about to go to shit. 😂

I have a feeling that if you don’t kill August she’s goin to escape somehow and like we gon fight again.

Honestly, I’m just really hoping for a lot more character customization where you can choose more aspects of their looks and personality and whatever. I’m kinda hopin for some polyamorous romances too.

I need to stop typing this is too much- 😂

I’m way too excited about this- I’m ranting- I’ll just go now 😅😊

You can complete side quests for perk books! also you will get some via the Main Story. However there's only 3 other perk books in the demo atm D:

i have a problem 

hey there! the demo is currently in pre-alpha so bugs are everywhere like flies in a horse stable T_T restarting should fix most of these including crashes. the game autosaves a lot so it should keep ur progress :)

Well, I'm sorry for answering late and the bug started as soon as I started playing it, just press start and the bug came out. I haven't done any process, thanks for reply

I LOVE THIS GAME! Its a piece of artf...

So are you going to make the sister romance able ?

Your game sounded too exciting to pass up (being an avid fan of all the games mentioned above). I thought, "Hey, I'm just gonna check this out real quick," and then ended up not being able to quit, even after some of the crashing issues. Both story, special effects, and graphics were interesting, but what caught my attention the most was the well-drawn out, extremely likable characters that make up this game. Everyone was so strikingly different from each other and I do declare I have my eyes on a certain flirty elf <3 Can't wait for the final product to commence!

Big stuff coming up soon! 🥰


I came across this from a recommended list from another game. Kinda glad it popped up because it is fun.


The game goes funky for me after lily shows up the game flickers randomly at times. Then just closes about every 3 minutes or so.

I think the demo is about an hour and a half long I got to the part with Tyran and couldnt find where to turn the quest in. But its a good demo cant wait for the full version.

Though it needs a bit of tweaking because it kept claiming I had frugal when I didnt. I think in the stats page it should list your combat and non combat perks. Which would help if you played more than one game at a time so you could remember better or at least make it so you cant buy the same perk twice.

The game doesnt tell you which you bought. I tested it to see if you could buy the same perk twice and it does. Without letting you know owned or bought at the side.

Hope to see the full game in the near future.


So randomly discovered this game on itch just a few days ago and having just finished the demo, gotta say I am a fan. I don't play a extreme amount of RPG maker games but I have played a few and most of them are not this good for a number of reasons, not as good isn't right, more like, don't have the potential this one has. This has amazing potential, it has an interesting plot with nonsensical politics and unique characters, the romance system while simple is fun and the variety of choices due to the perk system makes the game very interesting. 

-I did run into a stump when I took the health regaining perk a second time (can't remember its proper name) and I still regained health as if I only had taken the perk once so I essentially wasted that perk, the game mentions non-combat perks can be wasted if taken twice but that doesn't mention combat perks. I would prefer if the game simply blocked off taking perks that would be useless or redundant as it already dose this with class exclusive abilities so I it would be nice if that extended to stopping redundant perk choices given how important and rare the perk books are.

-The only other real problem I ran into with my run was crashes, I probably crashed 5-7 and was slightly tempted to give up, though luckily the autosaves were pretty on point and even when you walked into a shop and the game crashed on the loading screen, you would reload standing in the shop, so good job there.

-The art is decent to great quality at times and while I am no professional critic, I really enjoy the frequency of the art in this game, most rpg maker games with full art like this include it very sparingly where this game has it all over the place and that is a breath of fresh air so even if it isn't top tier it really is far better to have 10 nice pieces of art in a game compared to having 3 fantastic pieces of art in a game.

-Overall I really liked this, it has really fun characters and dialogue and the option paths really make me want to go and replay it just to see the different options, some choices I have seen particularly the medicine quest for Icarus's friend early on can give good karma but yield to a tragic result and I really hope that the trade the player can make there comes back to them either in a positive or negative way.

9/10 (lets be real, nothings perfect and she is a demo for a reason but she is a fine demo at that, so no 10/10 just yet.) Would play again and am super excited to see this game progress in whatever way the creator takes it.

Thank you so much! I’m rebuilding the game from scratch so the perk system will definitely be updated properly this time around! No more wasted perk options 😎 the crashes are also gonna hopefully be taken care of as well! I really apologize for that 😭😭 I’m so happy you had a wonderful time playing the demo! Stay tuned for the rest! It’s gonna be a helluva ride!!

The story of this game is very good!!!
how can I talk to the developer? I have some considerations to do :D

Hello! Feel free to just comment your thoughts or join our official discord!

I gotta say. This game feels really solid. It has a interesting storyline and I haven't played anything like it in a while. I look forward to seeing the progess on this. Definitely something to keep an eye on

Thank you so much! There’s a lot more crazy stuff coming soon 😉

Just joined your Patreon! Hoping to see more soon! :)

Thank you so much!!! I’m glad you enjoyed the demo!

Is there somewhere a part two? It is very good and i want more. :)

Coming soon!! 😉😉

Im sad to say there was a bug that I came across when I tried to go into the girls dorm for the first time...and I'm not able to take screenshots to show and I didn't think to grab my phone. I do remember though one of the things I read was a YEP file... probably not going to help much but it's better than nothing? 

Anyways, the other thing I found was if you find Kuro (I think that's "gloomy"'s name) for the second time, you know in the church in the town with the academy you go to in act 2, and you go to talk to him, it creates an endless loop that you can't get out of where you talk to him and go to end the conversation, the dialog happens but it pulls you right back into talking to him. 

My final thing to say is, incredible game, I love it so much, I dunno if your doing this or not but there should be the ability to romance more than one person, and depending on how far along the relationship you get with them you can get buffs, either from trinkets or stat boosts if your in a battle with them in your party. But yeah, final suggestion which I think you mentioned that your working on is adding settings to lower the visual quality so that weaker computers like mine can play smoothly and not have a battle of over stepping. Anyways, rock on, epic game, exactly what I was looking for and expect cash from me in the future =^w^=

Thank you so much! I’m  working tirelessly on getting the bugs fixed 😅 there’s still ways to go but I did handle the endless loop so thank you for the feedback! I’m happy you enjoyed the demo! There’s sort of the ability to romance multiple people depending on who they are, some might be more open to the idea while some might want you solely for themselves! 

That's so cool! I found a bug and I took a pic this time! Do you have an email I can send it to, the file is to large to send here😭

Sephngd@gmail.com and thank you so much!

Now you're just spoiling us with so many choices!!! >w<

Even nabbing extra sweets from the cookie jar!!! Not just one cute cookie but an extra one too!!!

Going...to have...a sugar overload!!! Whooo hoooo~!!

Hehehehe the reactions of the pairings is making it all the more intriguing. Such drama such romance such mystery wooo!!! >///<

How is this not made into a show!?! The really feels like this could come off as something I'd watch on tv!!!

Aww thank you! I really hope it will be made into a show one of these days!

It's a good really caught my attention in the first few minutes of playing unfortunately it does seem to crash often other then that a good game.

Thank you for playing! Unfortunately still working on the kinks of the crash but I have determined it only crashes at one point and once u power thru that area it’s gonna be fine. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello, just a quick question, is there a way to play in something other than fullscreen mode? I want to record but I can't see OBS lol

Yes! If you press F4 after launch it will make the game go on windowed mode :)

Feel free to link me to the gameplay video!

I encountered a bug and it asked me to report it, here it is:

Uh oh. I’ll get right on it! Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

(1 edit)

Yeah, no problem

Found the same bug, right after the second "Lily Interlude". I think it is also the same problem that caused my copy of the game three crashes before I was able to get to the end of said interlude...

(3 edits)

Dig the game! But I have some issues with crashes. It just outright closes the game. I guess it's a memory leak of some kind, it can be caused by un-updated/old plugins.

I kept monitoring my RAM, one time it crashed at 5 gig of usage, and another time at 3 gigs. Not sure whats going on, it usually crashes after 10 to 20 minutes.

^The crashes was something on my part which I managed to fix lmao.

There was a typo in the prologue, but can't remember where, I mean it said "And so And so" in the second section of the prologue. At the area where there's lots of graves before the academy, at the end of this map two or three tiles down from the exit is a passable hedgetile but none of the other ones was, so I can step into the grave section of that map.

Thanks for letting me know! I’ll get right on it!
