Can love bloom on the debate stage? You are Mori America, a Japanese transfer student entering Grand Old Academy, a prestigious private high school in the United States. You arrive just in time to watch the first round of the debate club championship, the most anticipated and important event of the school year. As you start to befriend seven of the debaters, you realize that there may be more to them than what they show on the stage… and that they’re all eligible bachelors. As the field of competitors narrows, the tension rises and conflicts begin to boil over. Loyalties will be tested, friendships shattered, and alliances dissolved. But throughout the chaos, one thing remains steadfast as a constant beacon of hope: teen romance. Grand Old Academy is a Japanese-style visual novel/dating sim inspired by contemporary American politics. Its tone is satirical, but lighthearted: it is a story about romance, friendship, and competition, not actual political issues. The only major difference from other dating sims is that all of the actors in this story happen to be politicians. Think “Hatoful Boyfriend,” but instead of pigeons, it’s Republicans.

Anyone familiar with Seventh Sanctum's generators will recognize the "list generated" style immediately. Basically, you click a button and a story happens. What's different about mine isn't merely the the way the words actually fit together to make a coherent story, but the sheer magnitude of the content --over 50 items per list, and each story generates from eight lists. Though I'll warn you now, there are only a few PG-16 images and they're only suggestive, not graphic. However it does use Adult language!!! Feel free to borrow any idea generated to use in your own work. In fact, that's exactly why I made it, to help erotic writers come up with plot-based Adult story ideas. After all, it's not what you Have, (or where you got it,) it's what you Do with it that counts!

"A person's heart's warmth. The very spirit that keeps them alive and strong, especially in cursed frozen tundra. Some say you can sell it to gain power, while others believe it is it's own power. Either way, it did not change the fact that Ágirni sold her heart's warmth to a demon for the use of magick." Synopsis Simple as Snow is a kinetic visual novel about a caster named Lysa who is caught up in the middle of a sorceress scheme to steal the heart of a young king. If only it were about love and not the sorceress' sick plot to literally take his heart. Simple as Snow is a kinetic novel, meaning it's strongly story based. All the backgrounds in the game were beautifully hand painted. This novella is over 14,000 words and has about an hour of game play. There are choices that give insight to the story if you choose to take the time to read them. Originally made for NaNoReno in 2016 with a team of one, but was released late because of life events. Working on this made me want to continue the story and though it might not be everything I wished for. I am happy. Please be aware there is some mild bloodshed and gore and thank you for taking the time to read this. This was an interesting journey and I hope that you enjoy the game.
