Side Story for the Fantasy-Romance Visual Novel, Alaris

Set in the world of the Visual Novel Alaris, the new season, winter, is upon us. Each season's arrival is an important time of year for the townspeople, given their respect and connection to nature.

As a healer, you typically find yourself inundated by waves of new patients - winter often bringing harsher conditions that leave people vulnerable to sickness. However, this winter, you find yourself with some free time, now that you're working with Central.

With time on your hands, you consider how - or rather, who - to spend your first Season's Greetings off in a while. How will you decide to greet the season, and what surprises might be in store for you? Find out in this sweet, casual winter side story: Season's Greetings

*DLC set between Chapter 1 and the upcoming Chapter 2

Alaris: Season's Greetings is an exclusive side story DLC that builds off our current fantasy-romance visual novel under development. Estimated word count is around 15k. 

The Game Features:

  • A variety of choices and options for a personal and immersive experience,
  • Free Time, where you can go on a date with *your choice of love interest,
  • Six potential routes for each of our love interests, who will celebrate the season with you in mysterious, unique, and potentially heart-warming ways.
  • Six Total CGs to unlock, one for each route,
  • An Extras Menu, where you can rewatch certain scenes, CGs you've unlocked, and keep track of the endings you've achieved!

*The last two love interests, Kuna'a and Aisa, will only be available after unlocking the first four LIs' endings to preserve the mystery surrounding these characters

Our main game of Alaris is still in development, but feel free to come and explore the world and greater story with each new chapter release! You do not need to download the main game to play the DLC, and DLC is not required to continue with the main game.

Great fun to read. One cause for confusion... It says "so-and-so's ending unlocked" and I have no idea if that's available yet, since I can't seem to find a way to read said unlocked endings.

Hello! So glad you’ve enjoyed the game.! The “unlocked endings” notification is just meant to help players keep track of which LIs they’ve finished since you need to unlock four of them to access Kuna’a and Aisa’s dates :) There’s no additional content as an “ending” - it’s just meant to help notify players you’ve finished their route - apologize if there was confusion regarding that!

Omg! I have to say this game is so wonderful!! gosh it’s so cozy and soft I really wanted to give it a try on Alaris before this DLC, but since I saw you would work on it, I prefer to wait so I could see who character I would like more! 

So I have to play all the routes!! and dahduasidshf Kuna'a is already my favorite jgdhDdajfajfj I love everything about his route :'D and gosh I need more!

the song choice is so good! fit so well with the moment and I love the snow falling it was so adorable!
