Another continuation of my itch.io finds! Termed as a supernatural romance visual novel, The Crossroads is a lovely end product of Seraphinite’s NaNoReno 2017!
From their itch.io page,
When Tiana finds herself house-sitting a mansion, she thinks her life is taking a turn for the better.
Little does she know the house is not what it seems… and neither are the two occupants who both wish to lay claim to her heart.
Contested ownership barely covers what’s happening at The Crossroads.
Like the game’s title, Tiana is at a crossroads. She lost her job, apartment and basically everything that she has and was at a loss until a letter arrived, asking her to house-sit a mansion.
She meets the two people who are maintaining the house in question, Tristan and Lucan. Tristan is the more easy-going of the pair while Lucan is more mature but drops innuendo in a lot of the interactions with Tiana. While I usually prefer one guy over the rest but I can’t help but appreciate how well-crafted the male characters are. ❤
Seraphinite did a great job in developing the story. It really draws you in, and even though the ending felt a wee bit flat, I think that’s just a lack of time on the creator’s part. The game IS completed in a month after all.
Now, you can also customise the protagonist’s looks in terms of skin tone, eye and hair colours and freckles. However, the CG gallery will only have the protagonist’s default skin tone.
I really enjoyed this game and look forward to Seraphinite’s games in the future! She also has a game set in the Regency era called The Lady’s Choice.
