A downloadable otome visual novel

Work in progress!

The moon above shines red each night, which Esta considers completely normal. Contrary to that, she finds herself anything but normal. To change her fate, she makes a deal with a secretive goddess.

This is a story about a magical little desert town with a permanent red moon.


  • 3 male love interests, 3 routes
  • Combines the playfulness of an otome game with a serious fantasy story
  • Current estimated playtime is 10-12 hours in total, although this might change during development
  • Will contain multiple endings, including dead ends
  • Accounts for differences in playstyle. Do you want to drown yourself in cuddly fun with your chosen love interests? Go on optional dates and experience special lovey-dovey choices with them. Are you more of a story buff? Go ahead and skip the fluff!
  • Partly inspired by the characters of our first VN Firefly. As we improved over the years, we felt they deserved a better story to star in. Say hi to the new and improved Esta!

This is a commercial project but we haven't decided on the price yet, so it's displayed as "free" on itch  for now (it really depends on the end result).

More to follow soon!
