The Story

"Chasing Sunsets" follows the rapprochement of estranged step-siblings after the untimely deaths of their parents.   The player will navigate relationships and work to gradually uncover deeper events that link the sub-plots together.

The game is intended to be released in 10 total installments, including the Prologue.  Development is at approximately the 50% point as Chapter 4 (ver 0.5) released on Dec 19 2021.

The Game 

Stone Fox Studios has taken a story-forward approach with high render density with higher-than-usual production values to deliver among the most cinematic experiences in the visual novel genre.   In addition to quality art, we have integrated over 80 songs and hundreds of sound effects to round out the player experience.

We have included a number of premium features, such as over 100 in-game achievements, a scene gallery, image gallery, phone system, and soundtrack player.

The consequences of the choices you make will be reflected in a real-time point tracker, and summarized at the end of each chapter with an update on how you did and how it has impacted the people around you.

The Development Team

While this is Kentyrr and Stoya's first creative effort, Chasing Sunsets has been incredibly well-received by the adult game community.   Their focus on delivering quality and focusing on creating more realistic and organic relationships between primary characters has become their trademark style.

So not a good start. Unfortunately, when trying to extract the folder to my HD, it's failing a CRC check. Tried redownloading, but no good. File issue?

(1 edit)

Sorry to hear that.   This is the first complaint of that nature we've received.   I will test the link on my PC, and potentially reupload another binary zipped with another program.

Can you confirm this is the PC version we're talking about here?

**Update**  I'm unable to replicate this behavior.   Did you end up running into a quote issue with Mega?   Please send an email to "support@stonefoxstudios.net" referencing this post, and I'll send you an alternative download link.

Thanks!

Ok!! I'm sorry for posting yet again, but you devs are really something else!

You lure me in with an awesome story, and more than my money's worth in content, and still has more coming. And now I was just about to play through a third time. And this is the main menu screen I'm greeted with.

A Witcher3 reference! I fucking LOVE you guys! hahaha.

Skirting the ragged edge of the "Parody" clause on Copyright law.

I know this isn't how things work, but for what it's worth, if I was part of CDPR, I'd be honored with that reference!

I really can't wait to get on Discord with y'all. But alas, I have a few things currently preventing me from making that leap. Just gota deal with a few other things before really indulging. Looking forward to getting to know the community. 

;)

A surprisingly captivating story, even though you don't get to make many choices in the beginning, I found myself immersed in the story almost instantly. That 'ski lodge' bit, kinda hit close to home, only in my case, brought back long lost memories of summer camp. Eh!

My only 'suggestion' I'd ask for would be an option to skip the lewd scenes. Specially once you've seen them, being forced through 'em all over again exploring the story for different outcomes, kinda gets "meh-ish" and unnecessary in many cases where there's no meaningful dialogs in those scenes. Just a thought. But it would be appreciated if such an option would get included in the next chapter release.

That said, I'll see this story through to it's end regardless. Great work! Interesting story, so far, interesting character arcs, and the story twists are welcomed even though I can somewhat anticipate what will come next.

I'm curious if there's someplace where ppl can discuss "spoilers" or perhaps even entertain speculations as to what might come next. Can you tell I've been drawn in?  lol

Great work. I await the next chapter with GREAT anticipation. I have too many expectations as to what is about to happen next, I CANT WAIT!

Glad to hear it resonated with you, and we take all feedback onboard.

There is lots of spoiler discussion and speculation on our Discord, and we both interact daily with our fans:   https://discord.gg/stonefoxstudios

It is a type of review and

What i get from this avn,

Spoiler will be there for sure


I absolutely adore and love this mc,only few avn has such good looking, Manly, knows his shit and ain't a perv teenager type.

He has billions of dollars but still humble and treats everyone good and does simple jobs for living,a man with character who even doesn't leave a one night fling girl on road when she needs him.

But i don't like li jaye at all,hear me out,

Don't think i hate Jaye, she's good looking but else nothing good about her,she dates with a gay(i mean sure she can be wierdo but not more than that,right?),who tries to rape her,i mean what do u expect after dating a weirdo,off course he will take what he wants,you should be stupid to think that he will not do anything,but mc stopped him from doing so.

Don't take me as pyscho but that would have been good,not because rape is good from any pov but because she throws shit at mc,instead of her rapist and even tried to defend his gay bf action,like wow great you deserved it bitch.

Then mc left her for her doing all this nonsense and she still doesn't do a damn thing and when he returned acted like a jealous bitch,like seriously? Was he supposed to be your loyal pet or something? You treats him like shit and he left as a real man,but you still blames him?

Even in story at no point we can blame Jaye for all this, but only can accept her shit lies and ridiculous stupid execuses for doing all that shit, instead of putting that bitch into her place.

That's all what she do with only good mc,rarest in avn,but she is more ridiculous that this,she is a lesbian and using her innocent friend for pleasure who also puts up with her shit as friend,and ain't a lesbian like jaye.

She doesn't work or anything and just live off on money of MCs mom,like seriously bitch you can steep more low?

And now she wants to run the company,like what she did for it?she wants all the money,yeah take it,mc is humble enough to leave all the money for a slut like you,why put mc into your shit?

She treats people like her slave,like with her gay bf,she brought him to ship from airport just to humiliate him,he asked for forgiveness but she brought him to be beaten down by mc,getting similar vibes, yup that's happened in past too,she just uses everyone around her,and when things go South she blames other.

I don't see any reason that she's a good li type,she is more of ridiculous bitch who's is nothing more than a slut,who just loves herself and nobody else.

Her friend is 1000000 times better than her if i would want to marry between them i would always choose her friend.

I think you completely misread Jaye, Christian was *never* Jaye's Boyfriend.

I think you need to replay those scenes and actually read the dialogs a little more closely. Because she very clearly mentions that she felt sorry for Christian after having met him in the school's infirmary with injuries from being mistreated by his father for being gay (recall when she points out 'cigarette burns'). And getting thrown out of his home for it. Then Jaye mentions that she felt sorry for him and invited him to her home to give him a chance to vent about his problems, and then that's when things got 'dicey'. 

As for her attitude, I think the story writer really did his homework on the psychological behaviors of people and how some deal with rejection and sexual/emotional tensions. I've personally witnessed similar events before, just not between actual siblings (not that Jaye and MC are actual siblings, I'm not sure how siblings with ZERO blood relations are considered as actual siblings. But for the sake of the story I'll let it slide hehe). And I think she is very well depicted. And her behavior checks-out. 

Also, about her relationship with Tara (her best friend), Tara is not gay and neither is Jaye. Again, I strongly urge you to go through the story once more and actually pay closer attention to the dialog details.

as for Jaye being lazy and not working, you really missed alot of text haven't you? because again she points out she worked as a barmaid. I don't know how you can even remotely conclude that she leaches off her parents for money, but that strangely sounds like work to me....

If you play the game constantly skipping ahead by mashing the "CTRL" button, I can understand how you ended up in china using a map for Australia!  Just sayin'.

(2 edits)

hey dear good sir you have some solid points,and maybe it's either I missed to type other errors or they are true so you didn't had an explanation for those,it's good since i can't take Jaye shit at all,it feels nice that i was right about her.

My point still stands,you don't love someone and just goes completely mad at them for reading your dairy,maybe when it's personal some could but off course she will throw shit and overreact at age of 8, something you can understand kids thing,but it lasted for 10 years? Yeah comedy right.

About bf part i think here you are the one at the wrong end,it was already mentioned by mc that she was dating that dude Christian and definitely didn't brought him out of sympathy she clearly also mentioned that Christian wasnt sure with his sexuality so he tried to force himself on her for that,and mc saved her,let's say you're a completely bloke head and the guy who saved you is your enemy but still who will you support your savior or your rapist?

Here this bitch just lost any empathy or explanation that could be given in in future to have a reasonable relationship with her from my side, taking her shit,trying to adjust with her.

So she basically sided with her rapist to throw her shit at mc,whom she loved? I guess nowadays love is joke or something,since love meaning is changed to throw your partner in the pit,i guess?

And it's not like she was never nice to others too,like when that Christian met Jaye at airport to appologize for it,she basically brought him on ship to be thrown out by mc,to get him humiliated and not dirty her own hands,good move bitch.

And basically what i make up of it,that bitch for sure wanted property of her parents all alone,reason why she did all this nonsense to get mc out of house,wtf she did to try to bring him back? And yeah just act as angry on mc for every fucking reason so why not here,she just acted like she's angry at him so even if he return(which she never wanted off course,in reality) but then either mc out up with her shit and apologize for Jaye mistakes to her,so she feels superior or she shows her true colours.

Now you will argue with nonsense like he bloked her no. Or something,but for sure that ain't the case,like when she phoned him to inform about parents death,how the fuck she called him? That's either mistake or just shit reasoning later for Jaye never calling,and what about her not coming with parents to meet him?so she was angry for shouting at someone for no reason and siding with her own rapist,rather than with her savior,and brother,and than making him ran away from house and instead of feeling for him and having any guilt to make him leave, she's just doing her bitchy thing of acting as innocent, it's either she's having bad acting skills or superior class.

About her sweet friend,Tara,only character i absolutely adore in this avn other than mc,i never said she's gay,i said how much innocent she is who not only put up with Jaye shit but also keep smiling after being used by her as sex toy,why not Jaye become a prostitute? Rather than using sweet Tara?why not earn with helping yourself at same time? That's where her ego come and her nonsense personality to think she is superior to others.

Basically whole point of avn is either we put up with her bitchness things and subside it and accept her with 1000000 flaws or she become our first enemy if we don't appologize everytime for no reason,well that's situation with your lover,but most of them aren't even half like jaye,she's extremely too dull if you look inside the context and beautiful if you just see her outside beauty.

This avn is wierd but only good aspect is mc,but when you make someone good you have to make him half beta(for no fucking reason) he's too good sometimes for his own good,like letting that girl just live off in his house,i don't recall names much but the girl he fucks in starting if avn,so he's just too innocent and we were made to believe it's Jaye, but she ain't good for anything,you justified her something,but it's just one big error which takes your whole life good credit and here she didn't had any already so she's basically off the list.

Why this much hate? No I am not spreading any and like i said i love this avn,but if main li isn't good and she's only one available WTF i coan do? Rather than asking for some justification of her character,in the end i didn't liked her personality at all,Tara is million times better than her and no not because she already slept with mc or has some real feelings for mc not fake like jaye one which switches on and off every time,but because she's sacrificing all that for someone like Jaye,still keep smiling after being used by her,and if someone keep up with shits like jaye that's for sure a greater person than i could ever be.

Thx for at least taking the time to read my comment. And I could spend alot of time picking at what I think you're wrong about, but I don't think that would be productive as we're all allowed to interpret the story line and character arcs as we wish. So Instead of pointing out more obvious misreads, I'll be perfectly happy with "agreeing to disagree" with you. 

I respect that you yield the results that are most logical for you. Either way, I'm sure we'll still find plenty to enjoy out of it regardless.  I just hope you're still able to enjoy the rest of the story. 

As for me, I just love Jaye, and all other chars. I even love to hate Christian even if I suspect his role will be pivotal and actually change MC's opinion of him in the next chapter. just a suspicion I have. The writers are crafty buggers.  ;)

In any case, thanks for the exchange of opinions. 

peace.

;)

Is there a way to put up a alternative Download source beside mega? I tried to download two days in a row, and run into the quota at 98% :(

Oh.. awesome game btw. One of the best regarding story and characters.. good work!

(1 edit)

Thanks for bringing that to our attention.

I've added a WeTransfer option now.   Hopefully that will avoid any transfer quotas people may be experiencing.

Awesome! Can´t wait to play :)

I can usually just move my vpn to another IP address

 and it picks right back up.

downloaded and yet 6 didnt load and started from scratch.  what did i do wrong?

Hmmm...Starting from scratch, did 6 play?

If your save doesn't work, always try the last autosave on Page 9.   Chapter 5 should have autosaved to Page 9/Slot 6 for example.

If neither of those worked, I'm not sure.   I haven't heard this issue reported from others yet.

Yeah, I think I simply don't know how to download the new content and then pick up from where I left off.  When downloading new content, should it be saved within the folder for the old version, or simply on its own in its separate folder?

Anywho, I can think of worse fates than to re-play your novel all the way through.  I look forward to having the time to continue the adventure.  Cheers!

(1 edit)

You can open your new download anywhere.   The binary writes copies of your save to %appadata%/ChasingSunsets/ so it should be aware of any previous saves no matter where you stored the last update.   (As long as it's under the same username on the same PC)

(+1)

LOL!  Indeed that was the issue.  I’d originally engaged on my MAC Air, but then attempted 6 on my desktop.  All good now.  Enjoying your writing and art thoroughly.  There are 9 quality AVNs (in my humble opinion) worthy of following, which are of professional caliber, and yours is in the top 3.  Keep up that quality production!

The only element CS is temporarily missing to be THE best visual novel is... more Lisa content! <3

(+2)

The key word here is "temporarily."   ;)   The forecast for future chapters is "Tasty with a high chance of Lisa."


As for being the best VN, there is lots of great stuff out there, and we'd never claim to hold a candle to many of them, but we're grateful for the kind words and encouragement!

Hello there! I want to start off by saying that I have played complete play throughs of Being a Dick, College Kings, and now Chasing Sunsets all in a single week. Out of all those AVN’s Chasing Sunsets 💯 has the strongest and most enrapturing story. It’s amazing and I love the depths that it makes me feel from high to low, the ride is incredible. 

-The Graphics are on point and the people and places over all look amazing with the exception of the main guy. He’s mostly ok and I think I see what your going for but something about his face just looks off. It needs more details I think just to sharpen it like everyone else’s. Everyone around him has dynamic facial expressions whereas I’d say the MC had like 2-3.  

That being said I’m rather surprised and disappointed that your roughly 50% through the story. It isn’t my story of course but as a writer playing this I just naturally feel like I’m more maybe 25% through the story. I would hope if this be the case that you have a plan for a sequel because it would definitely be wanted. 

Another low note for me on this game though is that if your truly 50% done, it feels like a rollercoaster. Out off al the AVN’s I’ve played Chasing Sunsets has the shortest chapters and they really could be extended. I see that chapter 6 is taking longer than most previous chapters I believe. Hopefully that means this chapter has more to offer than it’s shorter predecessors. 

Over all 10/10 on the story but because of the shortness of length and apparent pace id say 7.5/10 on the whole game. 

(+1)

Thank you for the feedback.   The average adult paperback novel contains about 90K-120K words.   Chasing Sunsets as of Chapter 6 contains 114K words somewhere past the halfway point.  Extrapolating through the projected end of the game, we expect to land somewhere between 170-180K words.   

Nearly every single line of dialogue has a unique render with every "short" chapter including between 1400-1800 unique and individually-posed renders.   Indeed, as of this moment there are over 10000 images in the existing content.

We're sorry the pacing and amount of content falls short of your expectations at our price point, but are gratified for the kind words regarding the story. 

I think you're underselling your wordcount by comparing it to a paperback novel. A novel spends time describing the setting and actions of it's characters. You guys are going the extra-mile and animating it. Not to mention multiple scenarios and coding.

So I will wait for finished game, and will pay more than whatever the final game price is, based on comments below! :)

Hey Developers, I want to send you a big THANK YOU and well done! I'm so amazed that I created an account here just to send you my regards (and 20$).

I totally loved your story & writing - that you've even gone the extra mile for the prologue helped so much connecting with the characters. Especially with Jaye you made a fantastic job in my opinion. And the pacing: Well done! That's why I find this game so high quality: It's not about sex all the time (no worries folks, there's more then enough), but also about anticipation and suspense. Which you nailed!

This plus your beautiful renders makes this game highly recommendable. Thanks again & continue you're great work.

Cheers!

Thank you very much for the kind words!   Hopefully Chapter 6 doesn't disappoint!

What does a "few hours" mean in the average session? That could be 3 hours only to maybe up to 7 hours?

This is subjective and will vary by reading speed, comprehension, player's preferred pace.  I would say right now it takes the average player 7-9 hours to complete the available content, if they are not skipping through it, and significantly longer if one seeks all of the optional scenes and achievements on all paths.

(1 edit) (+1)(-3)

I m glad you mentioned not skipping thing dev since you know the prologue is shittiest and stupidiest i had ever seen one,we all know bee and bird not needed to show mc mother or jaye father banging you stupid asshole,oh gosh then that stupid senseless scene of children,it was such a stupid sale,rest of story was good but reasoning for Jaye being bitch is like she is literally born by a bitch,is her mother literal female dog? She deserves to be treated like shit for her stunt but puts blame on mc,and mc has to be nice to her and listen her bullshit ti be a good guy? I know many jeks mc from avn but this is one of best guy,and he has to listen a bitch for her mistakes and appologize,my ass,i would love to kill that bitch,heree she is enjoying the money of mc mother and doing nothing worth and mc leaving for her shits and making life on his own,dang even parents were not cared much enough until last sec,you know badass route sound better,and Jaye deserve to be raped by that guy at that time,i forgot his name but it would be best for her because she deserves someone like him raping her,a bitch should know her place.

Based on your comment, and seeing it on Steam, I bought it. Hope you weren't fibbing!

(-2)

Hey dev! Buddy definitely loved your game one of fucking best avn with almost everything in perfect order and nice, best part is mc,a sweet nice looking,workaholic,who works to earn even after being a goddamn billionaire a modest and nice guy,his best part was even not hating character who were acting like a bitch towards him for no reason,and yes definitely talking about bitch Jaye,not liked her for even a fucking single thing,a thousand million flaws girl,act like a slut and hate her for her every word, but it's all okay in the end since we could just ignore and throw her from our life.



Spoiler


Wish that option on ship that to let her die would actually come true but she would be saved frustrating maybe in future when alone mc could kill her by his own hands,would love that

Does the Steam version support Mac?

Not  yet.   Soon!

When is Chapter 6 coming out? I love this story. Read Chapters 1-5 three times.

(1 edit)

Stone Fox Studios has mentioned in a previous post that it will take closer to 120 days for a new chapter.  My estimation for Chapter 6 would be 80 or so days.

Man that sucks. Thanks

Is there no way to save on the android version?

(1 edit)

Love Ch. 5 but sometimes the graphic don't load and I can tell because they don't load on the initial startup.  The screen is black for a long time then the menu will display, but nothing else.

Do you have a very old or slow PC?   Animations are larger files and can stress laptops or file systems that are in bad shape.

(1 edit) (+1)

I found the problem.  Believe it or not it was because I didn't have my headphones plugged into the PC.  I don't have speakers and I had been using my headphones for something else.

Just a reminder:   If you have paid for the game, the download links for the latest update should have been emailed to your Itch.io email address.   Please reach out to support@stonefoxstudios.com if you did not receive your entitlement.

thanks for decreasing the price by 1, i'm able to download it now 

(1 edit)

This VN is by far the best one I've played yet, so when Chapter 7 comes out, I'll happily fork out another $15 for it. The writing, grammar, plot and characters are all on point.

Also, I love the little cameo in the very last scene of chapter 6, where you see Christian reading his news paper watching the 2 officers grab that assassin. you can read on the front page of his news paper about Lexi getting engaged, from "Leap of Faith". And I noticed that same thing done from LoF about Jaye. Very cool!! actually gave me goosebumps. lol

5 out of 5 stars!

Oh, and I am working on that discord thing.. 

;)

wheres the android version?, i already paid for it too, i have to buy it again?

Android version is not complete yet.   It requires additional development time.   We will send out a mail with the link to it to previous purchasers when it is ready.

this isnt cool, its been months since ive been waiting for the android version and still nothing, yet those on pc already have the version ive been waiting for, is the android version ready or still not done, i would have gone with the pc version if i had known it would take this long

Email us at support@stonefoxstudios.net, and we will give you a link to the PC version or refund at your discretion.

Android has caused us persistent issues and we're not comfortable releasing  on that platform until it's up to par.

(1 edit)

I paid 3 to sample, then added 10 to buy chap 4, but I still can't buy the new chapter, even though it let me buy Chap. 4. ???

[EDIT: On the other hand, it let me use the link in the e-mail, so not as important a question, but still a question.]

(+1)

quick question: I bought Chapter 3. Can I download Chapter 5 or do I have do buy it again?

Thanks

Curious about this as well.

(1 edit)

i beleve you should be able to!! 

or atleest within the price you bought it for 

Edit: you should be able to install every version thats within $10.99 or what ever you payed thats from that current minimum amount!

(+1)

I think because I paid $10 previously, it is still locked due to it being $10.99 now, but adding $1 to it doesn't allow access... so I dunno lol

So, if the price increase each Chapter by 1Dollar, I have to buy each Chapter at full price. Or I buy it now at 50 Dollar, so I'm hopefully safe???

(+1)

nice update!

Hey I love this game, that's why I'm bugging you about the estimated time before the release of Chapter 5 of this game.  Do you guys have an idea about when that is?

Finalizing the beta now.

Will be soon.   Two weeks or less.

Game is great i love the cross over with Lexi its the little details like that , which truly makes this a masterpiece.

Hey bro just want to know what is the release date of chapter 5 because I am very excited to see what will happen in chapter 5. Just keep it up bro you're doing great.

(1 edit)

Guys I just wanted to say what an amazing job you have done with this. Its just the most beautiful story. I think we all know why we play these erotic games ;) but this is just soooo much more than that. I haven't been this emotionally into a story since "Game of Thrones." Its that powerful. You can really feel that love (Jaye and the MC) have for each other and their frustration that comes with not being together romantically. I'm rooting for them and I cant wait to see where it goes next. Again, well done. I loved every minute of it.

Glad to hear you are enjoying it.   We're certainly having a blast making it!

Chapter 5 soon!

i decided to purchase Chasing sunsets on steam to support, as many have said, you truly have a great game in the making already. its so awesome to see developers who go all in on their games. i hope you will include more animated scenes sexual or otherwise in future updates, it would be the cherry on top to make this game incredible!

Thank you for the encouragement!     Fan feedback is what keeps us on target.

I have a quick question about patreon.  When you buy patreon do you have access to chapter 5 or is it available when it comes out on steam?

Ch5 is in final development now.   It will post to Itch, Steam, and Patreon at the same time.

We are considering halting sales on Itch, however, and simply sending  links to future updates to previous purchasers.

Itch has proven difficult to work with.   Their customer support and willingness to transfer sales to developers is questionable.

Great noval all around but I have a question, where they always step sibilings?

I played the first 3 chapters and loved it so much that I bought Ch. 4. There's a certain depth to the interactions between the MC and some characters that I appreciate that other games in the genre simply lack. I can't even describe how powerful the scene paired with Two Years was. Hauntingly beautiful *chef's kiss*. Looking forward to more~

Thanks for the encouragement!   Really appreciate you taking the time to let us know it resonated with you.

(+1)

I just want to say, I found this game after meeting Jaye just before she got her favorite selfie. Gave me an interesting perspective on the possibilities during the prologue. Also put me on pins and needles until we got to the boat.

Two of the best AVN stories I've every had the pleasure to enjoy. Waiting impatiently for Ch. 5.

Thank you for the kind words!   

(1 edit)

Is there a wat to get the ch3 in android.. Why is android only at CH4? I'd really like to play it, because the visuals and story looks promising. 

Sadly, we ported the game to Android in Chapter 4.   If we find time between chapter 5-6, I'll try to make the public version available on Android too.

i felt in love with mallory and then when the test came out and said she is sarah cambell, bruhhhhhhhh i was like hell naw hell to the naw

This is a fantastic novel. The visuals are great and the story is one of the best I've read so far. Keep up the good work.

Hands down one of my favorites!  Love the story line.  Never thought about these styles of games, but you got me hooked.  Already been through the game twice to see what happens when I change answers.  Eagerly anticipating Chapter 5 on steam.  Thank you for the great work!

(1 edit)

Played 1-4 in one day and I can't wait for #5! The writing for this is crazy good!! I laughed out loud several times relating to situations that I had also experienced with my wonderful encounters with beautiful women. Thanks for making me remember and please hurry with #5. Any idea when?

Glad you liked it!   Working hard on Ch5.   I'll post a devlog update this weekend.

Never been more disturbed I wish i could been told better before paying how it be I don't I have ever been so upset I will say certainly there love and effort put into but I wish the I known that story could so not my cup of tea o win lose some I guess

If you contact us at support@stonefoxstudios.net I can try to find a way to refund you.

If going insult people can u please to people who deserve it that comment Abt Calvin was uncalled for I may be loins but damn u at least used player name that actually was a dirty player js

Hi, this game is one of my favorites, great story, gorgeous graphics and nice choices. Keeping you totally hooked.

But unfortunately, I can't download chapter 4 anymore. I purchased it on the first of January for 9 $, but now I can only see chapter 3, which I already bought 164 days ago.
And as I am in Germany, I can't wishlist it on Steam :-(

Just loved his heroic dive....

OK, false alarm, it shows chapter 3 in the purchase view, but when I download it, the file is ChasingSunsets-0.4a-pc .zip.

Calimachus, when the Chapter 4 (0.5) update came out, all previous purchasers should have gotten an email with the new links.   If you did not receive one, email me at support@stonefoxstudios.net and I'll get you an updated link.   I cannot DM you on Itch.

Hi, found the mail, received it 10 days before I bought it again in January. As I can't support you on Patreon, for me the second time is an additional support via Itch for your fantastic VN now.

will you release this for android? I typically like to do visual novels in bed with my phone :P

Yes...I've added an Android port above.   Some of the UI functionality is somewhat different by necessity, so please report any bugs you come across here, and we'll get to them right away.

Just finished Ch. 4 and I have to say I'm hooked and will be awaiting the next release on pins and needles.  I'm not much for writing, so my reviews are generally short.  With that said I'll say hands down this is the best game of it's type I've ever played.  You folks are doing an excellent job with this so far and I truly believe this will end up as a game all others are judged against.

I came here for the H-Scenes but I stayed for the Story.

Now, to review this a little bit.
The game uses my favourite type of narrator: the nigh-omniscient first-person narrator. That puts the player at ease because the beginning of the game from the Players perspective is also the end of the story from the Protagonists perspective. The game does tell you that there's very few game-overs (if any) but that particular choice of narration is "show, don't tell" (which works a lot better imho)

What also stands out is how multi-dimensional the characters are and the fact that there's actual character development that respects the player's choices. The angry bitch won't remain the angry bitch for all eternity if you make the right choices - and the game shows (rather than tells) why the characters are the way they are, why they did what they did and why (in those moments) they couldn't help but be themselves - or whoever the player chose for them to be. Unexpectedly thoughtful and self-reflective for an Adult-Game.

The game pulls your heartstrings... in the best and worst ways. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh, it will make you angry, it will make you cringe and it will... excite you. It will find a way into your heart and remind you of itself even after you put it down (due to having reached the end of the currently available content). And while the game starts slow - with lots of exposition in the prologue - I would strongly recommend to stick with it and not skip anything as the later episodes revisit and expose more about a previous plot.

The last (and best) thing that stands out for me (and partially why I started playing it in the first place) is how sex and intimacy is done. The game is certainly ADULT... but it is far more than sex. The game does intimacy, sensuality and the full range from soft to hard intercourse in a way that I haven't seen in any other game.

The renders are beautiful to look at and while they may be slighly stylized, they are close enough to "realistic" to make you forget that they are rendered.


There's only one thing that annoys me. The game isn't available on Steam in my home-country due to the particular laws regarding adult games in my country... so I can't buy it over there.

Thank you for taking the time to write some thoughtful feedback.   This  isn't something a lot of people take the time to do on this platform, so when it happens we're grateful!

We're happy that you see the story-first approach we've taken for what it is.   An unfortunate reality is that all adult games tend to get lumped together and our aim from the start was to do something a little different.   We hope we continue to reward your investment in us with the upcoming chapters!

I agree.  How one must wade through some pretty unintelligible garbage in other VNs, which really are just oure jolly fests, to finally come upon this (and a few others—notably Artemis, Being a DIK, Leap of Faith, College Kings, for example) entertaining AVN. Actually fun and mentally stimulating.

I note that you actually give each character their own voice, so each doesn’t sound like all the others.  You spend time with character development, so good on you!

And re the intimacy: you allow build up, and you seem to take your time.  Other developers could learn a thing or two about storytelling from you (assuming they would even care).

I will continue to look forward to your offerings, especially this story as it continues.

👍
