A game by Archeia, rhyme, Marimo, Caz and thernz!
 ​
Across the crystal floor he laid down with a smile on his face. ​
The peaceful serenity baffled her and the burning conviction she once had crumbled. ​
 ​
Everything about this child confused her. An abnormality. ​
Nothing like she had ever experienced before. ​
 ​
It disgusted her knowing that the child realized something that she couldn't. ​
She longed for an answer herself and she couldn't even ask him the conclusion he came to. ​
 ​
The anger overflowed in her and the pent up emotions she held for so long burst. ​
 ​
Questions overwhelmed her more than answers. ​
What were they fighting for in the first place? ​
 ​
How is he able to smile until the very end? 
 ​
 
Characters



Reyna Clementel
She's described as the warmth and sunshine of the Village of Cederia.
She has the ability to bring things to life.
Gameplay Style: Stances and Life Drain
 


Cider
Reyna's favorite pet raven. 
She calls him, 'The Black Steel.'
Gameplay Style: Buffer and Physical Attacks
 

Truffles
Reyna's favorite pet dove. 
She calls him, 'The Platinum Avenger.'
Gameplay Style: Buffer and Magical Attacks
 

Dominic
Mysterious boy that appeared when it snowed. He's always seen alone.
At least he has his crown and good looks to keep him company. 
Gameplay Style: Being Cool
 

Bill
Dominic's favorite crown. Named because of his extreme loneliness and persistence to do things alone.
Gameplay Style: Extra Step. Can move more than once but does absolutely nothing but sparkle
 
Features
  • Play two different viewpoints! Each having their own unique story arc.
    We guarantee that the two routes are nothing alike, bar aside the times they meet each other. We hope you will enjoy seeing the differences of ambitions and motives between Reyna and Dominic!
     
  • Traverse through the Wiccan and Miocene-era inspired setting with small puzzles.
    We hope that you will enjoy the custom assets that we made for this game~ Such as the famous Dragon's Blood and the Stonehenge! There will be puzzles here and there.
     
  • Battle-centric Gameplay
    The game features a battle system with a graphical look inspired by 7th Dragon DS and 7th Dragon 2020~
    Each PoV has a different playstyle. Reyna focuses on stances and the power of friendship. In contrast, Dominic as the lone wolf and the hero that gotham the game deserves.
     
  • No GameOvers
    Death returns you to 1 HP when battle ends. You don't receive any EXP because of this.
     
  • AP Skill Learning
    You get AP which you can spend on skills to learn.
     
  • Awesome story!
    That is so full of hope that we guarantee you'd raise your eyebrows due to how happy and dumb it is!
     
  • Dating Sim
    Choose one of your beloved birds to be your lover!
     
  • Snows and Blizzards
    That's totally a feature.

Oooooh! This looks gorgeous! :D Fantastic use of DS resources too. I love those sprites!

Loving the sound of everything so far. Crows are awesome, so I'm already a fan, simply for that reason alone~ Also, the No GameOver thing is a nice touch. Looking forward to a demo/release :D

I have not stopped being so excited for this!!! *pokes Dominic's pretty face some more*


That Stonehenge is fantastic, by the way. I've already enthused about the art and character designs for our leading pair before, but! That portrait art for Cider~ Ah~ what a nicely drawn bird.

Indrah, how can you look into Truffles eyes and not want to date that suave little bird? That half lowered lid and tight frown form the glorious expression of "You know you want me." Those soft, well kept feathers brushed upwards into that cute little tuft in the back demonstate just how much class one bird can hold.


The prince talks to his crown.


I rest my case.

I've actually never played that game. Its birds were not drawn by Marimo though, so I doubt they are half the charmer the Platinum Avenger is.


((Let's be honest here though, I've already made clear my love for Dominic when I first laid eye on his references haha Especially...his shading colours. Which sounds redic, but it's true. Drawing him was a pleasure.))

I love the little ice furniture and Stonehenge.  This is fantastic.  The portraits are absolutely beautiful!  Wait they are birds? Oo

Well I am the last person who could judge.

I am feeling better about my update schedule, I feel like I am actually getting consistent work done even if it isn’t big updates.
It's a joy to work on a well-made map. I am not regretting this commission in the least!
