Dizzy Hearts is a mature visual novel. With some parts romance, comedy and drama. A story of royalty, and social status, with themes of duty, and gender, and a coming of age. 

Set in a world split between eternal day, and eternal night. The naive but energetic Seriva sets out on a journey of adulthood in the tradition of her peoples, the subterranean 'Assard'. venturing to the lands of eternal night, where she discovers the city of Lungarde. 

In the kingdom of elves, she has learned that travelers are not that rare in this region. Although they know of foreigners, Seriva is ignorant to their culture, to the cycle of royal lineage, and the Fiore (or an elf with both sets of genitals, is given the title of Fiore, a title that carries both religious, and cultural obligations) rare and considered mysterious by outsiders. Rumor has it that Queen Llend has chosen her successor among the four fiore princesses, and is soon to abdicate, it turns out Seriva may have just stumbled right into the middle of everything!

In 2013 we launched our Kickstarter for Dizzy Hearts, which was amazingly successful, however we ran into complications that delayed the project. We have since corrected the issues we had and invested $16k of our studio's own money into the project, doubling it's budget and reigniting development, while massively updating the art. We are now on track to finish the main story by the summer, and begin our editing/alpha/beta phases.

This crowdfunding campaign is to raise funds to add voice acting to our previously successfully funded Dizzy Hearts campaign. Through development over the years since that campaign, we have resisted the ever present temptation of feature creep but following numerous requests to add voice acting to the game, we have decided to hold a second crowdfunding campaign in order to add voice acting. The game will be made regardless of whether this campaign is successful or not. This campaign is to give those who want to add voice acting and/or those who missed out on the first crowdfunding campaign the chance to get exclusive rewards alongside allowing us to bring our vision fully to life.

We at Lupiesoft are a small studio that started 5 years ago, and have been growing at a massive rate every year. Our first foray into releasing Visual Novels on Steam was The Reject Demon: Toko ch0 highly rated both among fans and critically, followed by The Stargazers, and Mutiny!! our largest most successful title yet.

Lupiesoft has been an LGBT+ studio making games that are not only for everybody, but push the envelope in terms of style and substance. We've taken risks both in spearheading mature content, and making games others find too niche, and too risky. In all obstacles we have thrived, and grown tremendously since first Kickstarting Dizzy Hearts 5 years ago.

Our focus at Lupiesoft is on creating meaningful playable stories and experiences. We proudly specialize in delivering large worlds, despite operating with scarce resources. While we have stumbled in the past, we have never halted or shied away from challenge, we have only gotten better and pushed the bar higher on what stories people can tell.

We are seeking investment solely through Kickstarter, and after completion Dizzy Hearts will appear on Steam and on MangaGamer. MangaGamer is a trusted partner of Studio Lupiesoft and will be providing marketing, quality assurance, playtesting, and consultation for the distribution of the game we create.

We are partnering with Sound Cadence Studios to provide Dizzy Hearts with voice direction, engineering, who handled many projects including the recent seasons of RWBY seasons 4 & 5, Rio: Rainbow Gate and more. We're working closely with the fine folks at Sound Cadence Studios to achieve a standard of high quality audio performances from our great and talented actresses from games and shows you love like Nier: Automata, RWBY, Rio: Rainbow Gate, and Little Witch Academia!

 

 

 

Our previous titles have been developed together with our community, with frequent discussion and incorporating community feedback in every possible way. As with previous projects, we want to give backers the ability to provide feedback, play the game early and assist in it's development! We offer our backers several levels of involvement with the project’s development:

Risks and challenges

When you are about to embark on any project there will always be a certain amount of anxiety. You can list all of the potential risks until you’re blue in the face. There is road ahead of us to final release but we hope it’s not too long a road. It would be foolish to assume no problems would crop up but we are confident we can handle any issues which might come up during development. We are experienced developers, having successfully steered multiple projects right before this one, so we feel confident we will know how to manage the unexpected.

Finally, to reiterate the main project description, this game will be completed regardless of the outcome of funding. This is purely to add some extra polish and we're confident that we can do that. Should you feel that we are not living up to the promises made in this campaign, then please contact us.
