Definitely one of the RPGMs I've enjoyed the most last year, and probably this year as well. Easy and enjoyable experience, sweet extra missions, amazing dialogues... The Prince of Tennis influences do really show and that's lovely!

I really liked the concept and the way this felt like a very personal project for your characters and you. I wish there were some more hints pointing to the whole thing earlier, but that makes things even more unexpected. The way you used some in-game strategies to make the experience even more original and immersive is just... chef kiss

Mucho texto, tldr; Thank you lots, Tonina, it was an amazing ride. Take care of your original characters, they deserve lots of love. I hope we can see more of your amazing projects soon! After all, this is not a goodbye but a see you soon, right? (/`v´)/

Thank you so much!! I'm so glad you liked it ^^ I'll make sure that the upcoming sequel meets your expectations!

This looks really great! Is there a Mac version? :o

Hi! I will be releasing the sixth chapter later today, so I'll try to add a MacOS version too when I upload the update. Thanks for asking!

Starting out nice and cute, it takes a bit to catch up to the horror segments which makes it even more effective to the player. The eerieness of the dark sea makes a great atmosphere for horror enthusiast everywhere.

Can't wait to see what the next chapters will discover us... But I'm a bit sad to learn that there's only two left... Everyone should give it a chance, before it ends!

Amazing game. Making a full gameplay on my channel, and was previously streamed on Twitch. Can't wait to see what else you have in store!

I'm absolutely loving everything this DEMO has to offer at the moment! Not only there's a super engaging linear story with interesting mysteries, but the subquests with the dolphin training and the collectible sea creatures are so FUN.

The character designs are so creative and pretty, and the whole underwater sceneary is just beautiful. It really feels like a submarine adventure exploring new areas not touched in years by humans.

I love the way you can manage to combine both comedy and angst so easily, it feels so natural. One second you're laughing and the next you're filled with dread. And then you're laughing again. 

The horror aspects are good too, I could feel myself on the edge of my seat, even if I knew the jumpscares were coming.

After that cliffhanger I really need to know more about what will happen to the poor MC, Comi and the rest of the gang. And how did he get into this situation to begin with.

It was funny though, in one of the flashbacks I think I saw someone who looked familiar 🤔 Weird.


10/10. Can't wait for more!!
