The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass is a mystery/thriller visual novel, currently in its last days of a very successful Kickstarter.

Created by Trinitite Team, the adventure game features an interesting storyline that delves deep into a thrilling mystery.

The discovery of a rare gemstone draws people to an exhibit held in Ashiya Tower. Just as the event begins, the tower is flooded with smoke and the emergency shutters activate, trapping 8 people in the tower for the next 12 hours.

The Sekimeiya

With no clear facts about the events occurring inside the building, the public and police can only speculate. Why can’t the shutters be opened? Is anyone behind this, and if so, who? Are the people inside even still alive?

These questions can’t be answered until the time is up. Even then, describing the events that transpired might prove to be a challenge. Prepare for twists and questions that will keep you theorizing, second-guessing, and searching for the ultimate truth.

The Sekimeiya: Spun Glass features an expansive library of 50 different songs, combined with great graphics, and a broad character base.

  • 40+ hours of thrilling, intricate mystery
  • Search text and jump to any point in the story
  • Summaries and player notes system
  • Extensive soundtrack featuring an array of artists including Clayfacer, mistwin, Primate, and more

Check it out at the Kickstarter!

Episode 5 Update

Andromeda Six » Devlog

“Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your support with ‘Tea Time With Oppo’ and the love surrounding it, we had so much fun creating that DLC! We really wanted to take the chance to do something fun and fluffy while we could, as when we head into Episode 5 we will be delving into some darker, more hard-hitting topics.

We don’t  give out dates for the Episodes until we know for sure when we can release them, so all we can say so far is that our plans are for a November release. We will give a fixed date as soon as we can, and update you if this plan changes at all. This Episode is gearing up to be the biggest one yet, with 4 new backgrounds, new sprites and variations, and a huge NINE new CGs.

Every member of our dev team has either a day job or other projects/work that also require our attention, so while we wish we could work on A6 full-time, it’s simply not feasible, and this accounts for the irregular releases. We do, however, put as much work into the game as we can, and we will try to keep you more updated on progress for the coming Episode, as we can see you enjoy that!

You can also visit us on Patreon, where we have started sharing sneak peeks and insights into Episode 5, and will continue to do so until release.

Thanks again to all of our players! And we’ll see you soon with some more news and updates :)”

Once an impoverished boy, Ecout Kanovos lands a job as a recruit for the authoritative force of the city of Enonoia: the Master Order Trained Hire. However, Ecout soon realizes that this work exceeds his expectations of delivering any sort of justice.

Amidst the chaos of sudden abductions and riots, an otherworldly atmosphere looms just beyond the recesses of the city’s society. From a dubious state prison, Ecout frees Otis: a peculiar young man with a beastly visage who promises to return the favor with an ability to grant any wish.

Could this power repair Ecout’s life before it crumbles along with the city, or will the events that follow mark his undoing? What awaits you in the end is yet to be found.

—Features—

Ovine Replica is an adventure-style visual novel: a text-based game with emphasis on a story—featuring illustrations and a soundtrack—which readers can enjoy at their own pace.

•Multiple endings to a tale of suspense and intrigue shed new light on what could be and what could have been. Choices made will lead to different outcomes in unexpected ways as your true intentions become evident. Decide for yourself if the city of Enonoia is a utopia or dystopia in need of your own ambition.

•Event CGs (dynamic illustrated scenes) are spread throughout the story, complementing a number of key scenes with fresh art from Aiyuu as much as each new track from composers Matthew L. and Strung.

•With a blend of inspiration taken from other tense, terrifying visual novels like Chaos;Head and atmospheric, moody role-playing games like Shin Megami Tensei™, dread may loom over the reader alongside enchantment. In an already-foreign world, the true mysteries have yet to be solved, and the biggest surprises have yet to be discovered.

This is the complete version of Ovine Replica, featuring the full story and the ability to either start from the beginning or continue from the point at which the demo version ends. The demo version of Ovine Replica only covers the introduction of the story, but may be downloaded from this page for the sake of preservation.

In the course of the war, the King of Ng, HéLǘ, sustained fatal injuries as he passed the throne to the new king “FuChai”, a girl.
To fulfil the secret and long-standing wish of their ancestors of breaking their sacred vow with the Dragon God, she is forced to live a lie. Faced with countless bloody battles to seal the Dragon God, there suddenly appears a reprieve…

GRAY’S CLOSING THOUGHTS CORNER

giphy (3)

Did you see any games that caught your eye? I’m stoked about the release of My Forged Wedding onto Switch! Only reason being is my all time favorite husbando is on that game, Yuta Kajima, and I do recommend that you check it out. I’m glad they released the game for Switch and I can now have a digital purchase of the game that isn’t ‘leased’ to me until they decide to pull it off their mobile gaming shelves. 

We are only a few days until October and the spooks are about to be a bit more rampant on the blog, and hopefully we see new releases of Halloween themed visual novels. Until then, I’ll keep you posted as I keep researching and looking for the newest content, spookiest stories, and very bad gaming advice on the blog. 

As always, thanks for stopping by in my corner of the blogosphere, and see you on the gaming side!
