I remember when this first came out on Lemmasoft, it has since remained one of my favorite visual novels of all time. I love how simple the story is, yet there's a strange mystique about it. Myra is a mysterious character, and whilst nothing fantastical happens as per the game's (Lemmasoft) description, it feels fantastical and it also all wraps up pretty nicely. I also enjoyed the game's comedic aspects as well, with the MC's sister and best friend being otakus trying to rope him into their world lol.

A VN I highly recommend, and I can't wait to try the Reprise edition. I plan to purchase it as soon as I can. :)

Thank you for the kind words! Lemmasoft sure brings back memories.

Is ST Reprise Edition 100% completed or is there more stuff to be implemented?

It's completed! I'm just sending out review keys to Steam curators and stuff like that before making the release date public.

I see.  Thank you for answering.

Hello, are you still on itch.io?

Hey, yes sort of. Profile is probably out of date though. What's up?

The Song At The End Was SOOOO GOOD


Hi Eternal! Finally found you again so many years after reading your blog! Looking forward to more of your works

Thank you! Blogging might be behind me now, but yep, I'm alive.  New project will be announced... this year probably!

The game has a slow start but is really fun & enjoyable. The art style is very unique, & there are tons of cool references for video game fans. I look forward to your future work. :)
