Our Lovely Escape - Bishoujo Visual Novel

The demo is also available on Steam!

Your life is a peaceful one. Each day, you work alongside your (otherwise?) all-female workforce in the pursuit of creating otome games.

Will you complete your life with a cute girlfriend, or will you be doomed to a life of normalcy?

Rather than our regular fare here at Reine Works, we've decided to give all OELVN lovers the experience they've always craved—an original English visual novel chock full of Japanese tropes and style! 

Haha, just kidding. We have, however, contracted a few Japanese artists to help us create a gorgeous, familiar game experience that will surely surprise you by the end. Overall, we're aiming to create an entertaining experience for OELVN and JVN fans alike.

Look at this gorgeous, totally normal illustration. Doesn't it make you want to weep?

OLE is developed by Reine Works & published by Top Hat Studios, Inc.!

The game's minimum viable product is already funded and near completion, including a finished script of around 70,000 words. However, we would like to add various improvements to the game to ensure we provide the most polished experience possible.

Risks and challenges

All of the game's musical tracks, sprites, CGs, backgrounds, and scripts are finished. Editing and programming are both around 25% complete.

The game will be completed regardless of Kickstarter funding, and the bare product is scheduled to be finished and released sometime around January 2019. If we manage to reach the goal for voices or the extra character route, however, we will need to push that date back to accommodate for the extra development time.
