Can I just tell you that the writing in this game is amazing? The characters are very well rounded out for a game of it's size. Everything else is amazing, too. I can't handle how awesome this game is!

What's a visual novel?
A visual novel is a game with little traditional "gameplay." The player reads text on the screen, accompanied by visuals and audio, and follows through a set story. However, they can make choices to determine the story's route and the ending. Think of it as a choose-your-own-adventure book, except in a game (and with art and sound!).
What's a BL game?
A BL game is a boy's love game - a game that focuses on a relationship between two males.

Hi there! Which version is on Steam? The PG-13 or the R-18? Thanks! Can't wait to play. :)
Only the PG-13 version, unfortunately! Steam rules :(. But the Steam game does include an itch key so that you have access to the R-18 version!
Just finished playing, and *spoilers below*
Uh, besides that =P well done! I dig the art style; it has the feel of some older BL doujin games. The soundtrack is haunting and lovely, and really adds to the unsettling atmosphere of the cathedral.
When you said "Nitro+Chiral inspired" in the Kickstarter, I was prepared for something worse than bad end rape. That wasn't a disappointment for me (I'd say I tolerate darker content more than enjoy it), but might be for someone else.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the game! Looking forward to your future projects =)
*damn you for making me ship [certain characters in the redacted route] and then [redacted]
Sorry, my attempt at spoiler tags did not work =(
Played Damian's route first, and oh my God, I want to have his voice's babies or possibly start a new religion around it. I mean, Damian himself is ok too =P but that VA's my fave.
Possibly an odd request, but would you mind if I use some voice clips from the game to make a custom voice set mod for Baldur's Gate?
It doesn't let me save or load. What do I do??
Are the load/save buttons/menus just not there?
Finally! time to play:)
