 Beach☆Volley basically tells the story of 3 characters.  
We’ll be putting ourselves in Jun’s shoes – a young man who is about 17 years old – during the most important summer of his life.
Jun will spend wonderful moments with the sun, the beach, and his two no less ravishing female friends, Alice and Rin

And of course, the annual Beach-volleyball competition will be taking place!
But the tension increases and settles between the 3 friends… how will this end?

Story

Summer has begun.
The 3 characters – Jun, Alice and Rin – together with their teacher will meet for a one-week stay on the beach with one goal in mind: to win the beach-volleyball competition that will be taking place.
As the teacher slips out for some suspicious reason, the 3 youngsters find themselves alone and talk about their pasts, which have nothing in common.
Can friendship or love help them overcome those differences?

CHARACTERS

 

 "Beach☆Volley!!" is a Visual Novel with a unique, calm, funny and sometimes sad atmosphere. What we have tried to do is recreate a relationship that is as realistic as possible, paying extreme attention to details with regards to the scenario as much as the artistry and the sound. The atmosphere is created using all the details we are about to show you.

The backgrounds

In "Beach☆Volley!!", time goes by.  Morning, Evening, Night. 3 different Textboxes are also available which are adapted to every moment of the day! When you are in the menu, it will sometimes be Morning, Evening, or Night.

 The CGs

Jun is telling a joke that does not make everybody laugh.

Alice is eating really quickly and making some weird sound.

Alice is cute.

And play to win the competition!
And play to win the competition!

 And that's not all...

The sounds

"Beach☆Volley!!" has a sound atmosphere that is specific to the Visual Novel’s themes: friendship, ambition, sports, romance... and above all comedy, beach and summer!
If you want to listen to the different soundtracks, you will find them in the demo!
We're posting different sounds here that were created by our team to give you the best possible taste of its atmosphere.

When they arrive, in the bus.

 The beach, morning.

 The beach, evening.

 Under the shower.

 Other sounds like footsteps in the sand, a door knock, a door opening, or growling are available or will be in the future!

Naturally, "Beach☆Volley!!" is dubbed!
Japanese voices are there because the characters are indeed Japanese!

The gameplay!

Because it doesn’t just have a lovely atmosphere, "Beach☆Volley!!" is also a sports Visual novel.

Here is how a beach-volleyball match will occur in the game:
There will be several matches, and each match goes up to around twenty points.
The match will be played with a timer, but there will be 3 different levels of difficulty in the game (easy, normal, hard). To make it simple, in "easy" mode you'll have to click on the next action in less than 3 seconds, in "normal" mode it will be 2 seconds and for "hard" it will be only 1 second.

 

 Alternative possibility:

 But this system is still being developed. There will be different choices to make: passes, shots, as well as other useful feints.
The opponents will put up a fight, they won’t be beaten easily.

For a +10h content and ~100 Cgs!
Available in English, French and Japanese!
Disponible en anglais, français et japonais!
英語、フランス語、日本語に対応!
Japanese dubbing available!*

*The volume of the voices can be reduced in the settings if you want.

Risks and challenges

We are now a studio with 2 years of experience and "Beach☆Volley!!" has been taken seriously by the team for several months already. The rewards have been carefully thought out, so there's no risk for any additional difficulty. However, if a product must be canceled we will make our utmost to refund you directly or give you a product of equivalent value from your point of view without any additional cost.

Our challenge is to produce a Visual Novel that will give you full satisfaction with its integrated content, such as a good script, characters you like, a perfect soundtrack and the subject mastery we now have.
Additional content also, including a Book with interesting information as well as beautiful exclusive illustrations and other things. A physical version of the game that will maybe include a manual or something specific (mini-book, mini-figurine or something else) if possible. As well as a pretty sexy Dakimakura or high-quality figurine.

This Kickstarter will include several elements that might interest you:
- A very good Visual Novel
- A good quality design
- An interesting story and pleasant characters
- Phenomenal soundtrack and sound effects
- A translation available in Japanese, and with Japanese voices!

- Carefully prepared offers you should like:
- The physical versions of the game, a book, a dakimakura or a figurine, all excellent quality.
(We will make sure we provide you with the best quality possible)
- Every offer is included in the next one, the more you pay the more you receive. So the price completely matches the number of product you receive. The price/quality ratio is really important for us!

And of course, here, you can support the future of the Visual novel for which we will be sincerely grateful to you.
We need you now. Support us financially thanks to Kickstarter and share us on social media, with your friends, on Twitter, or test the demo and post it on Youtube!
