Nova: Synthesis Creaturum
A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux
For years now, monsters have been a growing problem in Diolacov Kingdom. Their origin and behavior are a mystery, and a solution to control them has yet to be found. One day in the forest, novice magic student Merona encounters a monster while collecting plant life for study. At a crucial moment, she somehow manages to save herself by turning the monster into an innocent animal! Merona is then sent on a journey by her academy with a team of companions to travel over the forests of the kingdom to discover more about monsters and how she can transform them. What lies ahead is much more than what everyone had expected…
We are currently in the middle of development!

We're very close to releasing the full game (for real this time haha)! It'll definitely be out within this year, probably around the fall, so wait just a little bit longer. ^^ We do have monthly status updates and previews of sprites/CGs/BGs/etc. on our social media pages, so check them out if you're interested!
Seems like a nice project. Played the demo and it piqued my interest. I have a question. Who is romanceable and who isn't?
Thanks for playing! Lexan and Duran are the only two who are romanceable for the MC, and you can see their sprites on the page.
I'm kind of disappointed. Usually, an otome game has at least three pursuable characters...two is just ...
Though Nova can be categorized as an otome game, romance and pursuing a relationship isn't its main focus--the focus is mainly on the plot and character development. It's not like there's a complete absence of romance from it, so I hope you will still try out the full game and see if you like it! Our team has been working hard to deliver a great visual novel and would love for you to enjoy the story/world of Nova.
We should learn to be content and appreciate every creator's games. They take a lot of time and hard work in their hands to finish. We should be thankful rather than ask for too much-- not when the full game hasn't even been released yet. Just saying.
i lok forward to seeing this finished!
