So why Kickstarter?
Critical Bliss strives to change and increase the standards for the H-scene in the west. To do that, we need a motivated team with concise leadership. Receiving support to achieve these aspirations helps maintain inspiration and morale.
Due to the brand seeking out high-tier talent to work on our projects, we need funds to make sure everyone involved is compensated properly for their hard work on our titles. Kickstarter is just a first step in accomplishing these goals and allows us to open new doors for future, high-tier collaborators to lend us their talents.
Now let's move on to the fun stuff, shall we?
Oh, poor Selene! It seems our protagonist was a bit too rough with her ex-boyfriend following high school. After being incapable of putting up with Selene’s insatiable lust, he decided to break off their relationship. Traumatized from being dumped, Selene became afraid of herself and has chosen to keep the lustful side of her personality locked away deep within her.
Now in college and living on her own, she has been mostly successful in this endeavor despite a few strange friendships and some lonely nights. Her resolve begins to wane, however, as the woman’s calm and solitary life get turned upside down by supernatural forces. Twin demons (a succubus and an incubus), secretly parading as humans, have moved in next to her.
Once the two twins find out that their “dear neighbor” is having a bit of a personality crisis, their interest in Selene skyrockets. Elated to have a new toy to play with, the demons decide to help in the best way fiendish and mischievous neighbors can… by making her life just a little more complicated!
Will the twins succeeded in snapping Selene back to her normal self? Or will they make her even worse than she used to be?
Follow a strange and cheeky story about how the day-to-day life of a college girl turns into something straight out of a supernatural hentai manga!
- This is a nukige (a visual novel with strong focus on adult content), so expect a lot of naughty stuff while you're reading. W!?MNAD!!? has a strong focus on corruption and moral degeneration. Join our characters on their downward spiral of moral integrity.
- A smooth and sensual soundtrack compliments our crazy scenes. Taking inspiration from the 80s, Critical Bliss aims to make high quality music you would want to hear outside of the story. We hope to deliver an original "A E S T H E T I C" experience.
- W!?MNAD!!? explores a lot of fetishes and fetishistic scenarios. One can expect tons of variety, positions, and themes. The choices made in H-scenes will alter how those scenes play out. Unlock secret endings based on your decisions! (Disclaimer: This is for the final version of the game.)
- Discover secret easter eggs hidden throughout the game. Will you be able to find them all? (Even more hidden goodies if certain goals are met.)
- Critical Bliss strives to have an ear for quality and sound direction. H-scenes just don't feel complete without some naughty sounds. Please look forward to well-directed groaning, moaning, panting, and other luscious murmurs echoing in the background.
There will be even more characters joining into the fray later in the story! We have to keep some things secret don't we?
No VN (let alone any game) would be complete without art. At Critical Bliss, we have an eye for quality and try to secure as much talent as we can muster for our projects. We aim to be the best!
For W!?MNAD!!?, Lasterk takes cares of the sprite work, H-scenes, and character designs. He has a very distinct style that makes his work stand out among others. Lasterk brings his experience on past projects to our team and we are happy to have him on board!
MegaSweet provides additional artwork with emotive and quirky chibis & chibi-scenes to fill in the gaps of the story. If we are going to have chibi scenes in our VN, we want them to serve as something more than “filler” and feel like viable parts of our storytelling. He also takes care of promotional work, clean-up, and assists in character design creation.
ThaiChau is currently our only background artist. We need BGs that fit well with Lasterk’s detailed and pastel-like coloring. All of our BGs are custom-made from the ground up. We want to avoid pre-used assets as much as possible (within reason), even for a first time project. This is to show everyone that we are passionate about creating a unique experience.
Funding our project allows us to expand our team and keep our artists focused on the task at hand. Long story short, the more support we get, the more intricate we can make this experience for everyone.
Our main contributor to the W!?MNAD?!! soundtrack is Ryunocore, who has previously worked with Studio Trigger and Capcom. He won’t be the only one contributing to our sound! We plan to have others toss in tracks to make a rather large and engaging OST!

Risks and challenges
While there are always risks surrounding the development of any game, our biggest would be if we lost an artist. In the event of this unforeseen circumstance, there may be delays while we work to find a quality replacement.
This risk obviously extends to losing any other team member as well, but despite this possibility, we believe we have a very solid team. Everybody on the staff has proven reliability in their respective fields and are fully dedicated to the project. With the amount of progress we have made in development, we already have a clear vision of the final product.
We have worked very hard to ensure we have a strong foundation for our game before coming to Kickstarter for funding to help mitigate common risks.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
