White Violin - Gothic Yuri Visual Novel
Step in the shoes of a young violinist as she unravels the mysteries inside an old gothic castle.
The Academy sent us to this castle to learn from an alumnus practicing there. We sat in the carriage for countless hours. I brought a sandwich to survive the long journey. And when I asked if she wanted one, she turned and looked at me with disgust. That meant no.
I began to dwell in ontological questions as I looked at myself in the mirror. The clothes the maid gave me didn't quite fit. I panted as sweat collected on my forehead. The person in the mirror wasn't me.
By accident I found a basement full of dolls. They flashed with a dazzling blue aura in their eyes, clinging to their past lives by rewinding past rewards and regrets like an old patient rewriting his autobiography.

The white violin. An instrument that hasn't been finished with a soul. A device that only resonates with certain beings. Join Luna as she finds out the mystery behind the white violin, the people in the castle, and her own self.

Risks and challenges
The approach of this visual novel is very different from our last one (Vision of Aurora Borealis) both in art and in writing. Since there are very few of this kind out there to reference from, players may not know what to expect from this game. We will do our best to deliver a fun and fulfilling experience.
Our last project Vision of Aurora Borealis was delayed because of an artist issue, but we have quickly found another artist and the game is already completed. We have also shipped the rewards as promised in the last campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
