X-note Demo


X-note is a blend between Visual Novel and Dating Sim. Follow the story of Essi as she pursues the truth of her mother's death. The game spans 30 days, of which you can train Essi's psychic abilities, explore the school, collect notes, and make choices to determine her fate.


Ten years ago, Essi's mother died in a strange accident. She left a USB flash drive with a locked folder called "X-note". Unable to understand the purpose of it, Essi continued living her life as a normal junior high school student. However, Essi is hardly normal, for she possesses power beyond normal humans.

Essi's quiet life was interrupted by a sudden visit by a young man named Yuon. He asked her to investigate a murder case and a mysterious disappearance in the Xen Institute, a school deeply connected to Essi's mother. Tempted by the possibility of unlocking "X-note" and solving her mother's mysterious death, Essi decided to take his request. However, what awaited her there was a lot more than what she could possibly imagine…

Awesome mystery vibe and emotional story, and loved all the passwords and codes, and the figuring out the relation with mini-games and endings, overall a ton of fun!
And always love your stories, art and characters, and how nice the interface looks, hard to see any VNs with a nice clean interface as your games, always a pleasure to look at!

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I also like clean and simplistic interface. Lots people seem to prefer a more complicated one ^^;

When Yuon first came onto the screen, I was like, "the fuck, did that bitch just blink?" then Essi blinked, and I was just, "Holy fuck, they both blinked!!"
It took me by surprise.

I know, many people said the same even though the story has nothing to do with it. XD

Hey Zeiva I want to ask something. When you finish the game and go to the Soundtrack Gallery and play "Dreaming", on the neosounds website it does not show up but the "Dreaming" that shows up is like the one in X-Note where something bad happens. Is this an error?
zeiva's avatar
All the name of the tracks in X-note are different from the one in Neosounds.

I see. That would explain it. I loved "Dreaming" in the game. Thanks :)
