Wow! So impressed with every aspect of this (demo) game. Can hardly believe this was made with Renpy as every part of the game's interface  has been customized. The art style, the presentation, the storytelling feel light years beyond your typical Visual Novel. More like a playable comic. It's so refreshing to see someone push what is possible in this genre and really create something new and fresh. The character of Karah is hilarious, expressive and just the best!

Can't wait for the final game release!!





HIIIIIIIIIIIIII, thanks for the cool game!


hell yeah super into this concept


So this was hilarious. I REALLY don't know what else to say but that. Hilarious, and with an adorable art style to boot. Karah is a firecracker, and I wanna see more of her adventures soon.

I'm glad you liked it!  I gave the video a watch and a like!

Funny and a little disturbing, looking forward to the full release. The haunted house family is... something else. :)


Thanks!  I watched and liked the vid, and I'm going through the rest of your channel now too.  FYI, your "weenis" is the flap of skin on your elbow, but it's a word that sounds like something more obscene, so kids love saying it once they learn it, until they're old enough to do adult swears.

Ah, thanks for explaining, live and learn. :) And thank you for checking out my channel.. there are many many hours to spend there. :)


I can't say enough positive things about this. From the title to the nuances in the animation and text, it's hilarious from start to finish.  It feels very cinematic, with perfect composed scenes and an engaging story.  It was well worth my time and I really can't wait to see more.

Thanks, Dude!


I loved your demo! Can't wait for the full release :))

Thank you!
