You were in a situation that many post-graduates found themselves in, degree on wall, parent's house, everywhere seem to think your degree is just as useless as you do. The uniquely disparaging Quarter Life Crisis has came to you in full force, and you have been left with nothing to do..

And when university has set us up for unreal expectations of the future, there's only one thing left to do..

Grad School.

Through insane luck or divine magic, you've received your acceptance letter to Vanaheim
Home of the Vanaheim Institute of Magic and Technology

There's only one problem, you're distinctly lacking in the magic department. In fact, this is the first time you've become aware of magic's existence.


The internet as a whole was a huge inspiration for this game, We tried to set out to do something new that hasn’t been done in visual novels before by giving people an open world and focusing on character types and personalities that people really see in the modern day, instead of typical archetypes.

We aren’t afraid to talk about issues like mental health, toxic masculinity, issues of self-identity and discovery, and the more complicated nuances of relationships. The candid and straightforward nature of the game is part of the reason I decided to reach out to you.

The people who play the game really connect with it, and I want to have more people take a look and hopefully get the same impact from the game that the game and the community around it had on us.


  • 300,000 word+ Story (Across Two Volumes)
  • A true open world with free travel, leading to a different play through every time.
  • Complete soundtrack with over 30 unique compositions
  • Over 100 unique illustrations.

Well, the 100% off special let me know that I definitely would have been disappointed if I spent a single dime on this.

If no one minds me asking is there an android version

i couldent download could anyone help m

Any errors?

no it just didnt wor

Could this run on window 6

Really interesting story, and characters have a lot of depth, I just feel like it shouldn't be sold as an adult game. At least, that shouldn't be the selling point. There's only one adult scene, it looks like the rest were removed or moved to later chapters, according to how the story flows. It does have some freedom for choosing your own path, but, as tradition for a multi-part CYOA, it ends the exact same way each time. That's not a negative, as a writer I understand why it's like that. I can't access the discord, otherwise I'd love to talk about this game more. 

looks interesting. cant wait to play it.

Could this work with joiplay

Will there be a android version

I'm sure you get this a lot but... is it coming to windows 32 bits?

how do you get nil to say he feels like you understand him i did all the choices that involved him that would take a while but never saw it

i truthly like it but i cant find who is the one who draw all characters , like i feel like i search everywere

I think the artist is Gillpanda.

Hi! Sorry to bother you with this, but... Can I ask something? Is there any NSFW scene in this game? Because it's kinda my cup of tea...

Yes, but it's only in some especific moments of the game, it's not all the time

(+1)

ive played through the first and second chapters, this is definitely not the game to go if you want lots of sexy times

(+3)

fraype best boi

awww the game wont run for me god dammit i think i have a junky computer

(+3)(-1)

I'm confused, is Po male or female?

i cant seem to access the "TRUE END"

in the main menu there is an option called novel mode that helps you get to the true ending

i clicked on it multiple times

I love this game. from the start of the game i thought " oh another NSFW harem game labeled as a 'dating-sim' where your choices mean nothing" but getting deeper into the game i found that i didn't come for the sex scenes (which in and of themselves aren't the best but i digress) but for the story which leaves you itching for more. first time playing i went for a po route because i though " haha funny kangaroo dog cat thing " but i found out his story was so much deeper after finishing his route ( in one night i may add ) i turned off my pc and went to sleep, next day i went to go and look for the second chapter and found out it cost money, which i didnt mind spending because the devs made a amazing game i do a play through that maybe last 4 ish hours but instead i do kaj route ( because he is best boy of course ) and it seems as if the 2nd chapter felt shorter than the first and i was more or less disappointed story was ok but felt rushed but the next day i get back on and decide im going to get my money worth and get EVERY SINGLE ENDING... best choice i made while playing this game because after doing po route after kaj i felt like the dialogue changed for (imma put reacted because i dont wanna spoil) so i went to test this by doing tsitsi route which confirmed my suspicions so in that day i got 4 out of 7 of the character routes and the next day finished it and the ending ( while a bit confusing and fast paste ) was amazing but after finishing the game a white screen poped up which ( i dont remember what it said i think it just said 'familiar travels' ) made me kinda cry because i knew there was not going to be another installment which was sad. the only game that made me feel the way i did after playing this was undertale. but its sad knowing more isnt coming as if your in the discord everything is quiet. so yes the game for chapter 2 cost but its a great ivest ment i think you should buy and thank you devs for the amazing game

-chaos

TLDR; good game u should buy amazing story, yes

(+1)

When I interact with Tsitsi in the Dorm on Day Seven, I return to my room and the same event is still in her dorm.  Shouldn't this advance time?

(+3)

I feel like iv been blue balled because I loved the story but when I found out the 2nd chapter costed 10 bucks I felt so disappointed. 

ok this game is the best game i've seen thats 2d. its fun and memorable, and changed is only slightly better then it

(+1)

p

I tried this game out yesterday, and boy do I love the soundtracks in it! The story was excellent!

Whats the protagonist species?

Human as far as I know

wonder how long this 'loading tyrano script' will take...

(+5)

The game isn't what I expected it to be. I love the idea but it feels like I am not part of the experience which for me is the main point of a game like this. I also wished it would have more personal  custom character traits like being a furry or not and a gender choice as well. Those might be peeves but it will make it harder for future builds of the game if there is much customizing for the player. the NSFW stuff is kinda sad as well. From everything I said already would fix a good amount of the problem but it also should have more. I am ace and the NSFW in this game is more dry then my sex life XD (joking since I don't have one). Over all for anyone interested in this game please read other comments as well and know that this game doesn't have much to offer for most things it's trying to target. 

To be honest, the game presents itself as more than it actually is, is not really an open world and is not as deep as it says it is. The game is still enjoyable nonetheless.

dowloaded to try it out and dont even see the game to play. theres this tyrano thing but that does absolutely nothing (Mac) 

Might just be me but.. I downloaded the game, and I am trying to launch it but its just stuck on the "loading TyranoScript" and nothing else is happenin

The same thing is happening for me. Im trying to look for a fix.

can you make a chapter 3 and more please

There are some very big issues with this game on a technical standpoint. I love the story and a few of the characters have become favorites of mine, but the "open world" aspect has some major issues. For example, I went to spend a day with Fraype but he started talking as if I was with them the night before, when I was with Tsitsi. I love the idea of the game being open world, but you don't seem to get many options. Most nights I would only have the choice of spending a day with 1 or 2 people/groups. Not only is the whole selling point flawed, but the game itself is very buggy and feels unfinished. I have yet to try out the Novel Mode but the idea of bad endings being removed there is annoying. It no longer feels like there are stakes. I'm very critical on the issues because I believe the story is fantastic and that its being hindered by the major issues the game has. The characters are all appealing and fleshed out from what I've played, and I've commonly ignored a lot of the bugs because I wanted to keep reading. It might just be from focusing on like 3 different characters at once, but my playthrough has some major plot holes. I'd recommend playing this game, but probably do it in Novel Mode and give the normal game a shot after.

how many sex scenes are there

I tried to play this on joiplay on my android phone but it won't play the animations and I'm stuck on day three.

(+1)

it says its incompatible with the.. third-party website or something. it also said i "own" the game for some reason.? did i do something bad?

You did nothing bad, when you claim/purchase a game here (itch.io), it just like that, says to you own the game

(1 edit)
