We don't have much to go on yet but the characters all seem to have unique personalities! The concept-which I will not disclose here-is very unique, at least to myself. Generally in visual novels, the protagonist is the center of attention and everything revolves around you and the character you play. What makes this one unique is that you build a world around Saffron. At the same time we are off doing something, you know that Melody is doing something somewhere else. In this visual novel life goes on even when you aren't around to see it! ;) I look forward to the full release! 

Hello, feastonthefalln, and thank you for the feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the demo so far and found the concept interesting. 

I always enjoy playing games where you can feel like you are part of a larger world, so I hope I can bring that feeling to this project  and give players a game they can become immersed in.

Thanks for playing ^_^

its very nice visual novel.

its very longs as for demo version. I've been playing here full version game shorter than this.

well about the story... i tought its gonna be another dating sim taking place in school. but im very suprised how it changed on the end of 1st day of class.
i have to admit game is a bit sad. and its had how both main characters feel after what happened this time.
the dialogs are very well wrote too.
the idea is good and very original.   
i would tell more details but I dont want to spoil it.

i like how game is based on making choices in a lot of situation.
not every visual novel do it.
and i really like when ican make choice and decide how the story will continue :)

You could make the better interface (I mean easy way to check Uni map or how good is Mel's  marks).
The artstyle is great. All the characters and background looks very nica and detailed. I also very like music

well after finishing this I'm stoned. and a bit sad. 

anyway, I hope I'll buy the final version
