I hope you’ve had a great start to the new year!
Thank you all for your patience in waiting for the very first details about our brand-new game. Today we will share this information with you, and we hope that you like our plans for the new game.
New Game’s Name:
The name of our new game is “Sunshine Love”, or “SL” as we’ve been calling it. 😉
How we came up with the title for our new VN is due to where the visual novel is going to mainly be set – a place we’ve named Sunshine Bay, (which some of you may have noticed was also the name of the first track on Melody’s debut album!)
For those of you who have played our first game, Sunshine bay is the town next to Seaside and they’re both resort towns. So expect beaches, parties, sun, and girls in bikinis! 😊
Type of Game
It is indeed another Romance VN (with a smattering of other genres to feature throughout), and we’re already looking at including new and different features compared to what has been used in our first two games.
The Main Plot has been mapped out already for the story of Sunshine Love, and the write-up for this will be posted in my Patreon “My Membership” section once it’s ready.
What I can tell you now is that this new game will be more similar to our first game than to Melody. In other words, the plot will be simpler and more generalist than Melody’s was. We’re not going to focus on a specific theme like music or anything like that.
New characters introduced each week until the release date
What we will be doing each week over the course of the next two months is unveiling a different character that will feature at some point in Sunshine Love, maybe as early as the first release!
We’re well underway with our opening scene scripts and created plenty of renders and some animated scenes for the very first release.
With each post between now and then, we will reveal more and more details about the storyline, the characters, the menu setup and the overall objective of the game, just to name a few things…
As this is our very first post about SL, we thought that it would be best to share with you previews of our two main leads straight up!
So here they are:

She doesn’t have a specific name. You’ll be able to name her just like the lead-female in our first game.
We call her s… I mean, best friend or roommate. You know what we mean 😉

He will be the protagonist of the story. You’ll be able to name him as well of course. He’ll be the female lead’s b… best friend 😉
The game will also include more roommates and of course, a landlady. Because you can’t have a good game without a landlady right? 😉
As aforementioned above, we have some new features for this VN, one of them being that you will be able to see what the MC looks like in full (the guy in the previews), which we already see as a huge advantage over the previous two games.
It will greatly expand our options, especially when it comes to those “special” scenes within the game. The game will still have the classic POV feature but mixed with third view shots as well.
Please leave us your thoughts, feedback and constructive criticism about our two main lead character previews in the comments section below.
Thanks to all you guys (and girls) that have posted up messages and suggestions on our various pages over the past few weeks.
We’re still going through them all and we’ll do our very best to include these ideas into this new VN wherever we can.
And if we don’t, then we will consider them for our other current game or any VN’s that we create in the future 😉
SL v0.1 will be released in late-March, with an exact release date to be posted up soon.
Be sure to check back with us next week for our third character preview, as well as more details about the release of Sunshine Love!
Have a great day!
