Two years ago, six heroes were tasked with saving the world.
So they did.
However, once again the world is under threat from an evil force,
and once again, these six heroes are called on by their Kingdom to stand up against it.

This is their story.
A story of action. A story of romance.
A story of a handful of idiots dawdling around and somehow managing to save the world.
Again.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Meet May, a young girl who wants nothing more than to become an adventurer. Nothing in life is free, however, and she's working her first job as a Barmaid in one of Castle City's many pubs. Imagine her shock when five of her customers are Legendary World-Class Heroes who had saved the world from destruction a couple of years ago!

Not only that, they seem to have taken an interest in her.

Guide May through five unique plotlines centred around five unique people in their journey to save the world, clear up the past, and maybe- just maybe-

Make out.

Some quick stats:
  • 56,000 words
  • 200+ busts
  • 68 CGs
  • 18 backgrounds
  • 11 endings

And this started as a joke project that was going to have terribad voice acting, rushed ultra deformed artwork, and not an ounce of seriousness... haha... ha.

So I am first to comment about this game's beauty, eh.. I love the look of it *thumbs up* Subscribed~
I am slightly intrigued by this.
:D Glad you like the look of it~

Something tells me that the title is a big hint towards when this game is going to be released hmhmhmmmmmmm~ (though it's hardly the joke it was originally intended to be anymore)
Pink trim with black, effeminate male support character!

EDIT: OMG just noticed the kingdom hearts esq logo. Beautiful.

I don't consider it a spoiler to say that Gunn is a punk rock loving priest who lives in his parent's basement and draws magical girl comics in his spare time. (don't touch his black marker!!!)

You're magical to me.

Right having a little trouble with the description. 2 years ago, six heroes saved the world. Cool. Now they are being called on to do it again, really cool. The we have May who is a barmaid, therefore not one of the original heroes, and she's blown away by 5 of the 6 turning up in her bar, the implication being that she becomes the 6th for the second round of world saving? What happened to the other 6th person? Or am I missing something and May lost her memory of being the 6th and became a...barmaid? Or some sort of wibbly wobbly ball of stuff going on?

Actually that would also be really cool.

Also, why can't you date the dragon? They have feelings and needs too you know.

I'll wait until the dev's get back to me on that one, Cap.
April is indeed the missing 6th person of the group, and she was indeed a fool!

Why she is unable to travel with the original group is explained really early in the game, so I don't really count that part as a spoiler... Still, I left it out of the summary of the game because I didn't want to type it there. :3c

So for anyone who is mighty curious where April is and why May is stuck travelling with the rest of these idiots, here's some handy dandy--Spoiler Boxs!

Where is April? (information given to player 9 lines into the introduction of the game)
April was eaten by the Dragon. I won't go into to much more detail here.

Rach points out to me that, well - http://rpgmaker.net/games/7504/images/55877/
But we've not said anywhere that April was the 6th Hero specifically. haha


Why is May with them? (hinted at 8 lines in, confirmed around 20 lines in)
May is April's doppelganger, basically. The King who has asked them to save the world is a babbling, senile, old man and none of them have the heart to tell him what happened to April. When they see May at the bar they ask her to pretend to be April, if only for a short while, to trick the King.
Things spiral out of control from there.


I wonder if I should try to include that information in the summary. Or at least drop better hints that April isn't around anymore. mmmm

Anyway, thank you @Ebeth - Thank you! I'm glad you like the character designs~~

PS: you can't date the dragon because spoiler box number one

PSS: Anyone who read that before I edited the post, I'm sorry I got the names all backwards. 3 hours of sleep can do that to a person. heh
The dragon also has a special someone they are already devoted to back home. You wouldn't want come between them, would you?

And yes, 54k is indeed a lot of words. Probably part of why the writing that was supposed to take a month took over two. It's okay though, because we had allotted over a month's time for "sitting around waiting for the release date."

Could I venture a guess to say that this was inspired by a hilariously voice acted and Misao-nominated game that gained somewhat of a cult following? Or am I wrong?

54,000 words? I'm guessing we're not going to get the terrible voice acting then. Aw. I was looking forward to it. Oh well.

The portraits and visual novel style reminds me of Antagonist. You got a new sub.

The original inspiration is Dot.Kareshi 8-bit Lovers. Because I loved the idea of a typical RPG setting, but then I felt betrayed by that game because all the guys were total jerkwards and I was so DONE with all of them D< Rach and I wanted to do something in a similar sort of setting (cliche RPGland), and I suggested making a joke game. We did then play the hilariously voice acted game you've mentioned and we intended to have ourselves do bad voice acting for the game but---

As I started writing the storyline the game quickly became less of a joke and so the idea for bad voice acting was quickly cut. (be thankful for what you were all just spared from!)

Thanks for the sub!
Subbed! Sounds awesome, and 54k script now gives me a new high to strive towards to! :)
This has definitely caught my interest. I like the idea of dating sims and adding fantasy into the equation (including RPG fantasy) is definitely a bonus in my opinion! I look forward to dating all these peeps with bated breath~
Okay but I really wanna know: why can't I date the dragon, huh? Maybe she's beautiful and maybe I wanna be in lesbians with a dragon. >BT

...but in all seriousness: this looks cute as hell! Best of luck in makin' it, I love the art~ <3
