The story centers around Lorys, a girl who is a part of an uncommon fire species and an exile from her father's southern island.
In order to avoid execution, she agreed never to step foot on the island again, and live out the rest of her days in the north. She had been battling death in the brutal odds of the north for many years, experiencing unusual changes in herself ever since she first set foot in the snow, sedating them with medicine from her homeland that she always carries with her.                                                                                                                                       

Her simple rouge life had been stirred, ever since her mother contacted her after decades to ask for help, bringing up the dark reasons behind Lorys' punishment which changed things on the island forever.
Lorys' dear childhood friend 'Neiva' had fled her home on the island for a mysterious mission in the north. She is told to return her home so she doesn't face the same damage as Lorys. 

She pushes herself to her limit and finds herself vulnerable more than ever before, but she is kept standing by her companion Rowen, a disreputable cut-throat whose motives  seem pure.

Explore a small portion of this mysterious world that holds both medieval ways of life and advanced technological artifacts of a forgotten time.

Goodness, worlds like these are my FAVORITE in fiction. The darker aesthetic is really amazing to me, and the art only serves to complement it. I had no choice but to support your work and check out the art pack. I really love art like this that has beautiful free brushstroke patterns (I don't know anything about art, that's the best way I can describe it haha!) You really created a beautiful world and atmosphere here! And I have to say I'm just a huge fan of your writing and pacing, you inspired me to write personal things myself. I really can't wait to see your future work that will include this world. Thank you for this little journey. <3 I'm not a renpy pro, but if you ever need help in the future with any part of your future projects then don't hesitate to ask! I really wouldn't mind further supporting and helping out with such a enticing world you've created.


I can't thank you enough for your kind words! 
I am beyond happy that you've taken an interest in this world I'm trying to create and expand, and knowing that my projects inspire even someone to look into doing one themselves motivates me to keep going. 
In fact I have a mini project/game that will offer a bit more information about the world coming very soon!

Thank you again for your wonderful comment and support, it helps immensely! <3 <3

So glad you're going to make more games~

Any chance we'll see Benjin and the old man again? The boy is precious.

Thank you for the game and good luck with all of your future projects <3

Thank you so much!

I would love to have characters from different stories somehow cross paths, so I guess the answer is......maybe! :)

The game is wonderful, art is to die for, story is well written and easy to read but I managed to find only 2 endings. Any walkthroughs or tips to achieves others?

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, thank you!
I've made a simple walkthrough that includes all 5 endings. It is linked here:


I really, really loved this VN! Everything from the art to the beautiful writing was really well executed. I only wished there was more because once I started playing, I couldn't stop. I look forward to your future projects. Keep up the amazing job :)

I'm really glad you enjoyed it. And thank you so much for your kind words, they truly motivate me! 

im demanding more of that ^^ 

i really like the artwork and the interesting characters.

Thank you so much! Your support means a lot to my work and to me.
The next 'big story' will probably take a while, but in the meantime I will be sure to work on some short stories since there is so much I want to write about and illustrate.

cant wait ;D
