About

Stay up-to-date with the development of GRAND!! by following our Twitter or Facebook page.

 

Elijah “Lili” Grand or simply “Lili” as his two best friends call him just started his first year of college and he’s about to experience “real” life for the very first time.

But there’s one BIG problem, he can’t stop seeing himself as his AVATAR!!

 

Now it’s up to his best friends Lucien and Sebastian to get him up and out of his room and into the world!

AND the only way for them to do that is!? A makeover!! So que the 90s montage music, because Elijah is about to have the ride of his life!!

But will this help him or hurt him?

Let’s find out!

 

College is a place where you learn so much about yourself. You have a lot of things that become your firsts; first love, first heartbreak, and your first taste of the “real world.”

GRAND!!” is an interactive BL Visual Romance Novel with Kinetic and NVL elements, which basically means we are mixing the standard visual novel format with a narration heavy kinetic format. Oh yeah and it has 18+ CG’s!!

After all "You can’t take on the world without getting a little dirty" as Lucien would say.

Watch Elijah as he stumbles his way through his first year of college and help him decide on which “firsts” he should try. Is it going to be the kind, sincere, and romantic “Gio” or the overly sexual, snobby, but secretly nerdy “Kai”?

Join Elijah as he attempts to find out exactly what it is he likes in life and men, all while taking on the big bad world, in this first chapter of GRAND!!

Follow the development of GRAND!! Chapter One, more closely on Twitter, or Facebook!

You can also watch the trailer in HD over on the GRAND!! YouTube Channel!!

Risks and challenges

Much like Elijah "Lili" GRAND, we’re college students and of course that means dealing with the challenges of being a student, namely that being passionate but poor. We’ve dedicated so much time and effort into creating the perfect team that can make this graphic novel come to life. We have fallen in love with the characters, have started planning for the future, and continue to make edits and reedits to the first chapter. We would be ever grateful for your help, and will promise to keep in contact with updates and news as we approach our milestones.

We also understand that things happen and/or change during the process of making a game and therefore are open to adapting, including that of player feedback. Challenges will be met, and we will be open with addressing them as quickly as we can. We understand that this is a two way partnership and we would keep you in mind each step of the way. After all, Grand’s story isn’t just his, or even ours, it’s all of ours.
