Every year, you attend the Harvest Festival thrown in the manor on the hill; this year promises to be a little different. With the help of a companion of your choice, you will navigate a gauntlet of intrigue, enemies, and flame to save yourself and the people you care about. Choose between the charismatic gang boss, the lighthearted Fleet Commander, and your mischievous childhood friend, and embark upon a mission to find out what went wrong on Manor Hill.

Due to the medium (Twine) your save games are stored by your browser.

* Valerian is the only open route, due to time constraints. Gnarl and Abeni will be added, just TBA.

* As of 22/02/2018, word count is 21,612 !! (This is counting progress I've made since the last update, but it hasn't been wildly significant)

i cannot wait for the update!!! im so excited! (p.s valerian is the love of my life thanks okay bye) 

That's so sweet !! Thank-you !! I'm glad you're liking it, and Valerian !!!

(Edited 1 time)

This was such a wonderful gem to find! You have such a strength for writing character interactions. Will definitely be looking forward to updates <3

I'm so psyched you like it !! The positivity gave me the willpower to make it through the rest of my day !!

Aw, I'm happy to hear that! I'm cheering for you!! \o/

i created an account just to tell u how much i loved this and how excited i am to see the rest, also as soon as valerian was introduced i was like "oh no hes my type" and i was instantly drawn in. im really excited to see the whole thing tho!!! abeni and gnarl are super cute and id love to see where the story goes with them!!!

Yay !!! I'm glad you like it and super flattered you made the account to tell me so !!! Thank-you !!!!

This is super cool and fun?? I'm excited for this. My twin showed me this with such enthusiasm and I have to say, well warranted. I love how you characterized your people, how different they are, and it's just really immersive. I was surprised that I got dragged into it so fast that I was almost startled when it ended. Keep up the hella good work dude, I'll be watching for this!!

I'm super excited you took the time to comment !! I wish I could update faster without real life bugging me constantly, all the time, but it really makes me happy that people are still looking at it regardless of my snail pace !! Thank-you !!

Hey, the more time you spend on it, the more you get to think of fun ideas! And I'm glad, because this is just so vivid and detailed. I can't commend your writing enough, especially for the amount of work and effort it takes to do a multi path story. It's consistently good and I hope you continue, even if life is bugging you. (We all get bothered by it. Don't worry, people will flock to quality no matter the time it takes.)

Why can't I choose Commander Abeni as my favorite? I fell in love with her instantly.

Unfortunately you can't choose her because I am only one man and can only do so much writing at once. She's next in line but I had to rework production to do one route at a time because I'm operating around working on a visual novel and a 30+ hour a week job. I'm glad you liked her though !! She's super fun to write.

Okay! I understand that it can be hard to make games do certain things.

It's a long process but she's definitely coming!

Hey, I don't want to sound like a douche, but I saw the update and was like, "Oh shit! Is Abeni finally a choice?" And I played, and she wasn't, which made me sad, and I would really like it if you added her in as a choice for the next update.

Still working a lot, friend. I was considering slowly catching the other two up to where Valerian is now but if I don't, that's entirely my call because 35+ hours a week is a lot of hours and if I'm not feeling up to writing something I'm not gunna half ass it just to have something out.

Finally got around to playing this, and I've got to say, I'm in love with Valerian. The game is great and I can't wait until you continue it! I hope you enjoy the holidays!

I'm glad you like him !! Christmas retail is kicking my ass but I'm working away !! Happy holidays to you too !!

This game rocks! I mean it hooked me from "hmm, let's see what this is" to "GOD. MY. OH. WHAT'S NEXT?!!" in a few minutes from the start. And on my way from sheer interest to countinuation hunger I laughted, counted my pulse, cried through laughing and found myself forgetting to breathe at times some gang bosses hanging over my lady...

Also, found my new line for life till the end of the year. Onward towards the drinks! xD

AH I can't believe I missed this I need to check my email preferences. Thank you so much !!

hey, just wanted to say that i'm super loving this so far!

<3 I'm glad !!
