Pleas Note: This is a FREE visual novel. Go to the  link above to get it. ^-^

So glad to finally have this thing mostly complete. I started it back in March of 2014 for NaNoRenO but didn't manage to finish in time because of various reasons. Put it on hiatus for a year but thankfully managed to get one route done this year. Which is pretty surprising considering I took part in another group for NaNoRenO on top of tackling my own game. Big thanks to thyprincess.deviantart.com/ for helping out with writing! She's also doing the majority of the male route so please wish her luck.

The female route is just about finished, but is missing some finished CGs, which are just sketches for now. The male route is still a WIP so it's not worth playing just yet. Please let me know if anything's weird/glitchy. Honestly haven't had anyone bug test the final version and I'm sure I missed some things. I plan to go back and tighten things up so please excuse my dust.>_<

This is my first Ren'Py release but I really want to improve and go on to make better games. Questions and comments are welcome! I've put a few feedback questions below that'll help me as well.

1. Did you feel like the choices given were enough to shape Cyn into the character you wanted him to be?
2. Which character felt the most believable? The least?
3. What do you think could be improved upon game wise?
4. What would you like to see implemented in further releases?

SYNOPSIS:
Cyn has always lead a pretty solitary lifestyle, never tending to worry much about anything, unless Sorren manages to get him wrapped up in some type of scheme. But when he's strapped for stones and in need of some fast cash, a seemingly easy retrieval job becomes much more than he bargained for. Now he's saddled with an insufferable mer who's only wish is to go home and get as far away from him as possible. The only way he's going to solve his problems is by selling the mer to the highest bidder. But can he really doom another soul to a fate he's been fighting against his whole life? Or will he finally give in and live up to his Noct heritage?

FEATURES:
-Female and Male Route
-9 different endings per character
-A morality meter that tracks the decisions you make

I really like your game! The characters are all interesting and the story is very good! Do you think it will ever be finished to completion? I'd love to check out the other route and see the finished cgs.

Has anything changed since you wrote the description? Thought it would be good to know before I start playing.

The male route is still not finished but the female one is. I think there's like one or two CGs that are still sketches for her route but it's playable.

It is. The male route is done writing wise and I just have to finish  the endings for his route. Then finalizes his CGs and that's it.

You're welcome ~ 

I wonder, if I may ask, if there is a chance for the game to be finsihed someday? I'd love to see more of the boy route :3 I don't mean to rush anyhow.

I certainly hope so. I haven't heard from the writer in quite some time so looks like I'll have to finish the rest of the writing myself, along with the art and programming for the boy's route.

Oh yeah, it's definitely alot to take on. If anything making this game  taught me that it's way better to work in a group for something like this. Thanks, it's comments like yours that make it worth it!
