A Dungeon Crawler - Visual Novel - Capitalism hybrid where you play as 1 of the 4 young and beautiful girls who recently died but is brought back to life by a devil (who also happens to be a young and beautiful girl). Though, instead of claiming your ever so cliche human soul, the devil demands a huge sum of money for payment. You also learn of the dreadful fact that you will die again if the payment is not in time. Can you make enough money in time to save your life? Does that sound a bit too dark? You would be pleasantly surprised (or disappointed) that the game is actually very light-hearted for the most part.

It is a novel about two young transfer students with a troubled but hopefully interesting past,trying to turn a new leaf in their lives. I prefer visual novels with lot's of choices, so there will be routes. The first branching will happen when you will pick with which main character you want to play, the guy or the gal.However after that I hope to have a computer club route, a library route, a HEMA fencing route(pretty unique if you ask me), a form your own club route and a hidden mystery route. Burn the bridges:chapter 1 is a visual novel...my first one kind of complete. It is a novel about two young transfer students with a troubled but hopefully interesting past,trying to turn a new leaf in their lives. I prefer visual novels with lot's of choices, so there will be routes. The first branching will happen when you will pick with which main character you want to play, the guy or the gal.However after that I hope to have a computer club route, a library route, a HEMA fencing route(pretty unique if you ask me), a form your own club route and a hidden mystery route. Personally my favourites so far are the fencing and mystery routes, so that is why so far those are the most fleshed out ones in my head. Most of the choices however will be hiding a hidden skill system. Also one of the skills unlocks all routes, while the others unlock only one route. This choice is however useless later in the game(unless I decide otherwise). I am only sorry that I forgot to at least display the skills at the end since right now they don't do anything... As for the romantic relationships, I plan to make it like this depending on the routes and their subroutes, some routes will have several romantic interests: -boy pursues girl -girl pursues boy -girl pursues girl So far in the first chapter I have done this: -the introduction of the settings,main characters(also the choice of which one of them you will play) -the introduction of the homeroom teacher,however his character design is a placeholder.

Serafina's Crown is a fantastical, dramatic visual novel with branching storylines, a stat-based strategy game, and dating-sim elements. In the game -- which takes place in the same world as Woodsy Studio's first release, Serafina's Saga -- you play as Odell Perin, an inexperienced young woman who must navigate political intrigue, romantic confusion, and an ongoing murder mystery while serving as Regent of Darzia. The branching storylines depend on your decisions: forming romantic relationships with other characters, finding Queen Belatrix's killer, and determining the next monarch. The game also features a dynamic debate system that allows Odell to argue certain points in court based on her accumulated stats. Key Features --Branching Narrative: --Debate Mini-Game --Girl x Boy / Girl x Girl Romances --Voice Acting: Serafina’s Crown features a cast of talented voice actors that bring the story to life. Story & Gameplay The sequel takes place seven years after the end of Serafina’s Saga. Grand Prince Robil Feldren dies of an illness -- and a few weeks later, Queen Belatrix Grandil dies in in the midst of a “hunting accident.” Serafina Elborn and her husband Reuben Jeridar are poised to take the throne, except for one big problem: Many nobles suspect that Reuben Jeridar arranged the assassination of Belatrix Grandil. Players take on the role of Odell Perin, who is unwittingly thrust into a position of power. Due to her neutral stance, Odell Perin is elected to serve as Regent long enough to settle the ongoing disputes -- and thus determine who will become the next King or Queen of Darzia. Serafina’s Crown is a visual novel with elements of fantasy, adventure and romance. Every decision Odell makes as Regent of Darzia will change the story arc to favor the different Gods. These decisions will allow Odell to get closer to solving the murder, but they can also make things more complicated for the inexperienced ruler. . . . The game also features a debate system that allows Odell to argue points in court based on the stats she has earned throughout the game. Winning debates further Odell’s quest in finding Belatrix’s killer and choosing the next monarch of Darzia.
