Premise & Plot

Paige lived a sheltered life in the spotlight, and came out the other side worse for it all. She can't even sing anymore, something she made millions for only a few years ago. It's a shame all that money remained with the record company, and somehow she still owes them a few million more. While writing lyrics for the new wave of pop stars is okay, Paige can't help but feel like there's more out there for her than lyrics. 

  But what? 

CAST

✧・゚:* VERSION 1.0 *:・゚✧

As of the 12th of March 2019, I've released a prototype of the game as it currently exists. The main route is Anna, with most assets developed in her path. I became too ambitious and the project grew way bigger than expected... But it's a start!? Anyway! Let me know what you think in the comments below. If any issues stand out to you, or any paths stand out to you that you'd be interested in, I'm happy to take on the feedback!

honestly it was very... atmospheric? hell yes!

I fell for Anna, but that's beside the point!

I'm in love with the  a e s t h e t i c s  !  From the Backgrounds to the UI to the character art i just wish i could wear it somehow.

The Story setup was great.  You have this cast of characters that all have history with each other and you kinda have to piece it all together but it happens organically, no "let's all pause to reminisce" and everything gets foreshadowed at least a bit so you're not out of your depth.

Really like the journal, breezed through it and felt way more attached to the protagonist than at the start.

Overall a standout title and can't wait for further updates

This comment warmed my heart immensely! I love this project to pieces, so I'm glad to hear it was an enjoyable experience. It has a lot to go, and more to be done, but I cannot thank you enough for the kind words!
