Zayo Byron is the last person you want to meet while wandering around alone at night. Well, guess what fate has brought to you~
The game features:
1. Unique Play:
Every time you play Zayay you experience only about 25% of the game's full potential. The game uses a system that makes the game unique every time you play it, allowing you to experience a different 25% of it each time. Even if you try to replicate your previous playthrough and follow the exact same steps as last time, there would be always something different about it. The game always follows the main plotline, but little details change all the time making your experience unique every time.
2. ~10 000 words of dialogue:
Zayay consists of almost 10 000 words.(9,932 to be exact) But due to it's unique nature, you get to read only a portion of that during each playthrough.
3.About an hour of gameplay time:
Depending on your reading speed and the style of playing, if you like skipping or not, if you use saves or start a new game every time, this time my vary. But getting through the whole game just once usually takes about half an hour. To discover all the secrets, you might need a bit more~
4. Five different endings:
Zayay's ending is affected by the choices you make. There are five different endings you might get depending on how you acted during the game. There is no 'true' ending, but you can get a 'happy' ending, 'bad', 'boring' 'lies' and 'truths' endings. It's for you to decide which one is which.
5.Two secret beginnings:
If you're lucky enough, you might discover the secret beginnings! They don't affect your endings or main plotline, but you might find them interesting to read~
6.An Extra chapter:
Beat the game and get all the endings to unlock an extra chapter! Find out some of Zayo's secrets and discover his true self.
Have fun! <3

Break OOC time!
This means me NOT being serious anymore, talking like I'm trying to sell my game to you guys and all that stuff-LOL! Back to being myself! So what should I say, hmmm... I BEAT FREAKING NaNoRenO!!! (Note: NaNoRenO is a challenge to create a visual novel from scratch within a month. It's held every year, during March.) I diiid it, I diiid it~ *dances around* FINALLY! After so many years! I found out about the world of visual novels and that challenge 3 years ago, and every time I'm like: I'm going to enter, I'm going to do it! And every time I did nothing...until now! On the 4th year! FFF! Took me 3 years to get around to do a VN, 3 whole years!!! I have so many projects, so many of them scrapped, failed, abandoned, not even started-lol! only one finished game, which I don't count as a VN, and now this!!! Actually, even the idea of this isn't new. I got it about a year ago after making this poll: psyalera.deviantart.com/journa… ... OTL ...Why do I feel so fail, I just beat the challenge!!! In fact, I even started late! I started working on this half way through the month! So this was made in around 2 weeks in my free time. I always wonder why this challenge isn't in April btw! I have 2 weeks of holidays now, what am I supposed to do?!
So yes, let's talk about this game. I can't believe I made a game about Zayo. It's not just about him, but everything in it is about him-lol! That "Unique play" idea came from that Zayo has many faces, he's an actor and he can pretend to be anyone he wants at any given moment. And he lies...a lot. That's just who he is. And you can never predict what he's going to do next. so YAY! Unique play, there you have it. XD I actually thought it's a pretty nice idea, might use it again in the future, hope you guys have fun with it. ;w;
Then, the player barely has any lines in the game. Why? Because Zayo never lets anyone talk-lol! He's always bla-bla-bla and never shuts up-lol!
And other small things like that, this game is just so Zayo! Pffff! *flips him* (╯░□░）╯︵ ┻━┻
Coming up with the title was hard, uhhhh! I had no idea. Then I thought YAY, I'm making a game! And I called my very first file related to it 'zayay', so I just used that in the end-LOL.
I had fun making the backgrounds move and stuff. I hope they don't make anyone's head hurt though. \(◕‿◕✿)
And I so apologize about the music, if you've heard it a million times before or something, sorry,sorry! QAQ I had a really hard time finding music so I just gave up in the end and used this. OTL Next time I'll definitely hire someone to make the music for me. This is just too painful. *dies*
And my writing, omg, I'm sorry about my writing. ;w; I'm not a writer ok??? I draw. What is writing, what is grammar?! Writing took me the longest of everything to do. a@
This writing was a lot like RP-ing actually. But do you know when was the last time I had RP-ed nicely and properly? Over half a year ago!!! So in the end I felt so desperate for RP that I RP-ed with myself, aka I wrote this visual novel-LOL. Because basically, that's what it felt like. XD Oh! Many thanks to Tear though, for writing Ele's part. ;w; Now with the new RP groups I joined I hope to recover and feel better and improve-lol! Or maybe now more people from SoC will get interested in Zayo and will want to rp with me~ *shot for dreaming too much*
And I got Dea's permission to use Deamond, oho-ho-ho~ , but because I didn't want to make him too OOC, I didn't write him much. ;w; Next time I think I should make a game featuring Zayo and Luce just trolling Deamond and stuff-LOL.
And I guess...that's it! I hope you guys play and have fun and tell me what you think.
If you come across any bugs, problems or really embarrassing typos, please tell me ASAP! lil typos are ok, because I'm lazy and that's a free game for fun, deal with it~
