IT IS TIME.

LADIES, GENTLEMEN, AND THE REST; dischan media is releasing its first visual novel: Juniper’s Knot!

Screenshots

Here it is.
Also here.
Oh, and here’s the soundtrack too.

Obviously, they are both free! You may give us your money if you so desire, however. People were asking if they could, and now that we actually have a product out, we feel that we may accept your contributions. You may use the “Like the game? Support us!” link on the Juniper’s Knot page to do so.And sorry for the wait. We do hope you enjoy it, fellows. For those of you who haven’t been following us lately: Juniper’s Knot is a short, fantasy, kinetic novel (meaning there are no choices) that tells the story of a boy’s encounter with a demon in an abandoned village. As it is tiny, saying any more may just ruin it for you. I’ll say one other thing, though: our new programmer, Anton (Guy-kun) Prydatko, is in the process of porting the novel for iOS with his own engine. Gasp! Holy expletive! Look forward to it- I know that I am.

The artwork looks fantastic. Can't wait to try it out. Why is this 'obviously' free? I say charge us gamers even if it's a buck or two.

It was written for "NaNoReNo" which is the "visual novel" equivalent of "NaNoWriMo" where you write out a novel in one month. The tradition is for these visual novels to be free, sooo...

You can spend money if you want here: Junipersknot.dischan.org
and we'd love you for it, but you certainly don't have to.

What software did you use to write the book? I find this interesting, but the software I tried (years ago) was a pain. Artworks do look good, though I'm not a fan of anime characters.

The artwork is just fantastic. Are you using any Python in this? also, lovely menus.

In a sense. Renpy is built with python.

Yes, why obviously ? If you put a lot of work on it, you should charge something, or alteast make a "pay what you want" model

Just re-iterating that since it was for some specific "event", in the spirit of it we didn't charge. Also, it's free so you can see what sort of things we have in store (this is our first release)! You can still pay us, and we'd be totes thankful, but it isn't at all necessary.
