So good. The art is really lovely and those short stories "with a morale" always had a good impact on me. Took me 3 times to get to the "true" end. It was very satisfying.

Tho it's not really an otome-ish, I guess?


Edit: AHHHH, it's you guys! I remember playing and absolutely loving Days of the Divine. Now I know why the art-style felt so familiar.

Thank you for the lovely comment! It was written more as a deconstruction of otome and playing with its common tropes :D

And yeah we were! It's so nice to hear you read Days of the Divine too! It's still on our list to re-release in the new enging and I'll upload it here once we finish that.

Makes sense. There was this disturbing lull of getting you to lower your guard and just completely give yourself up and/or trust this attractive being. DotD also was a good game with a theme and a moral. Having 3 very different LIs broadened the lens and aspects of the overall theme.

And yeah we were! It's so nice to hear you read Days of the Divine too! It's still on our list to re-release in the new enging and I'll upload it here once we finish that.

Ohh, that sounds great. Right now the only way to download DotD is through your Lemmasoft forum thread. If you post it on itch.io and give it the appropriate tags I think many more newcomers to this type of genre or format will be able to find it.

OKAY SO. I FINISHED IT!!!! 


OMG. WHen I was playing it I got this feel like "Hmm, i wonder if [spoiler thing]." and then as I kept playing it I was like "Oh?" "OH????" "OH???????????????????????????????????"


AND I WAS RIGHT. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Omg I loved the slow build up and the reveal of [spoiler thing] and I was able to get the good ending on my first try!

The art is absolutely gorgeous (I kept staring at Seleos' little pec-window hahahaha XD), and the lighting on everything has a nice touch. I also liked how flashbacks are in the brown tones, a nice contrast!

A fun read!! I take it we might see more of the characters in Under The Red Moon? :D :D :D IM SO EXCITED!!!

Wow Heiden, thanks so much for already playing it! Your entry is on my to-play-with-dev-friends this weekend too :D! I'll leave you a review when I get to it.

GOOD JOB getting it first try, that's really cool!
Hahaha, I was joking with Kiki to make this the itch thumbnail:

As for these characters, perhaps in a future project, but Under the Red Moon will only have returning characters from Path of Dreamers . We made these guys purely for nanoreno, although it is set within rules, magic and the world of our other projects :)

Thank you for the lovely comment!

OMG I LOVE THIS THUMBNAIL PSDIOFJDS:OFIJSD:OFJISD:FOSJDI:FOEJWIFOSJ


And oohh!!! Okay! Well still looking forward to your next project, regardless! :D :D
