Bug list.

Lenin is an albino lion, the only one of his kind, and because of this he feels insecure and constantly discouraged. In fact, Lenin caters to all the symptoms of depression. Worse, his mother does not understand why his son was born that way, and the whole village despises him and treats him cruelly. At school, he suffers bullying and can not concentrate on class.

Now, hopeless about life, certain situations seem to awaken in Lenin something that is not of everyone’s reality, but only of his. Something he will discover to be part of something else.

In this place, Lenin will find other species of animals, which may help him to understand himself.

Lenin will have to face his inner fears and enemies - and often, the outer ones as well.


Lenin and his mother.

Lenin is the main character of the game and the only one playable.
His mother is an erased figure and without many good thoughts. Constantly sad, she doesn't understand her son's situation and can only feel sorry for herself. Her interactions with Lenin are always very dry and fast, as if they were strangers.​


Each choice in Lenin - The Lion sets a bit on a path to be followed. Each one of them! Even an informal conversation with an NPC has a second sense and a proposal with the options. Think well before making a decision and see your results at the end of each section of the game. Of course, notice the changes your choices made in Lenin’s life.


Lenin’s backpack is your menu. Only with it can you access your items and read information about them. Make sure you always keep it with you. If you lose it… well, no menu! Better go back before someone finds it!


There is always at least one more way to do something. If you want to go through a gated area, talk to someone who can give you the way out of there, or perhaps go through a puzzle that will allow you that. Sometimes all you need is an item and a good chat (or a bad chat)!


That’s right: don’t even think about finding an enemy and start a fight. Lenin missed out on karate classes and did not want to fight too much. But make no mistake: it isn’t because Lenin doesn’t fight that he doesn’t get into fights… It’s better to find a way to get rid of conflict situations. Hey, you better give him a little help, huh?


What else?
World replete with references to depression, its effects and treatments.
Choices determine the different endings of the game (there are 3 in the demo).
Original art / soundtrack.
Anthropomorphized world.
A cute and unique main character ♥

Thank you so much, Meaka! You're one of the most dedicated fans (I can call you a fan, huh?). I've already become a fan of you being a fan of the game (lol I'll stop with the fan stuff).
OMG I was so happy to see this game show up in rmn dude. I followed you on tumblr and this page looks awesome too! I'm really excited to see the progress of this game, as depression is pretty personal for myself too, so it's really cool to see a game that dives right into that realm. Literally. Lol but yeah great concept great art great choices great characters and guh I just like this okay I'll stop rambling.

Hahaha Thank you Miremira! I'm so glad that this project touched your feelings (really!). I hope to not disappoint with the gameplay too.

If you follow the Tumblr, try to participate to the little "event" that I'm doing. Not many people are participating yet, so it may be a good thing for you! :)
I just commented on your TIGSource devlog, but I forgot to mention that I like the characters, especially the design and walking animation of the elephant one! :)

I just saw your comment on TIGSource and I answered it! Ty for the tips :)
I'm glad that you like teh design, it's something that I put a lot of effort.
Hope you follow the project.

For the others, a screenshot for the last post in Tumblr:


This seems very promising.
What about let's players who'll edit this to add their own little bit of self into the game? I'm asking for my friend Rain, since he's rather shy, even on the internet.

What exactly do you mean by "What about let's players who'll edit this to add their own little bit of self into the game?"?
In the game there is no personalization of the character or anything, but rather choices of the path to be followed by Lenin. Is that what you asked? Sorry if I got it wrong!

By the way, I also uploaded the official poster of the game! So take a look :)

My bad, english isn't my strong language, I meant:
"Some let's players edit footage of the game, I don't mean in game personalisation, I mean: They record the audio, and them playing, and then they edit certain features, -like in Sony Vegas-, like, for example, I'm not even sure if this pertains to you: "Oh, this area has really repetitive bad music, I should change it a bit. 'Edits the song: 'The Red Coronation' during really epic game story climax'"."
There. Not to the point of changing your vision of Lenin completely, this is mostly for personal taste, I'm not dissing your choices, but some game developers don't exactly have a taste in music that includes more than 1 song. That doesn't necessarily apply to you, but if I were you, I would rather know it someone was about to play my game, and was then probably going to edit something.
P.s. I checked out the official poster, and Lenin's super cute~

Oh, I guess I understood. It's like to get opinions from players and other devs? Or I'm still getting it wrong? If that is the case: of course. I'm completely open for opinions about the songs, gameplay (when available) and even the script itself (I mean, if someone wants to say "this part needs a improvement" or something like that, there's no problem at all. Also, if who plays wants to record the game, talk about it, etc, its completely cool too!

I hope I've answered you!

Changing the focus a bit, I edited the main topic to put the Lenin's Theme, that is the song below:

Hope you guys enjoy it!
Hello guys!
I'm here today just to show the Preview of the Official Trailer that will be release next month before the demo :)
(Just a few seconds, but I hope you enjoy it!)

Hello people!
I've uploaded a new version of the demo and as well its bug list.
Hope you guys enjoy!
Any more urgent questions send me by facebook or Tumblr. Hugs :)
I wrote a review for the game but I think for some reason I will have to resubmit it. Anyway, I really enjoyed the game and hope to see it complete soon!
I seriously can't wait for the full game release. Even for just a demo, this had me in tears, I love the relative situations that a lot of people go through. The themes, the graphics, the music, everything.
OMG I LOVE IT !!!!!
I love your characters so much, they are so unique <3

Hello, where can I submit some screenshots with bugs?
And do you plan to have DASH implemented? I feel like Lenin's movement speed is a little bellow average haha
I loved playing as Lenin, he is a character that doesn't start off with childlike naivety or a dark personality, he is just himself. Neutral. I think that is really important for a game that has a main character grow especially since there are more than two options are popping up when its time to make a choice.

It was very fun to play and so far safe enough to show to children because there is nothing gory or too mature in it, just a few spooky things. The psychological aspect is what would make it seem a little unnerving like how some characters treat Lenin and how they treat each other.

Great job! I can't wait to buy the full game! :)

That was my intention from the beginning: a game that anyone could play. A person who has never had depression can understand a little more about their evils - more directly and more subliminally - and anyone who has ever had it can play the game without feeling bad and have several bad triggers fired, but with empathy by Lenin.
Thanks for the comment!
