About
Love Mythos: Sanctuary Island is an all-inclusive, one of a kind Visual Novel and Puzzle game for PC, Mac, and Linux. This venture features a balance of immersive story, as well as a a mini game to progress both relationships and dialogue. But Love Mythos isn’t just pure titillation (not that there’s anything wrong with that, amirite?). As the main character, you can help guide your fellow wounded companions through rehabilitation, or let them slip into bitterness and revenge. Your decisions, your words, your actions shape the entire world and who these fey will come to be.


Story
You, an independent selkie just enjoying life in the Ocean, have been captured by the strange creatures called humans. Kept in darkness without your precious skin, you’re sure it’s the end when suddenly a team of rescuers sweep in and take you away.

They whisk you off to a hidden island; but not just any island. You find yourself at a rehabilitation center for fey who have been hurt by humans. And while you are not grievously wounded, the rescuers couldn’t recover your skin. You are now stranded on land, with no way to ever get home.

From there you meet the inhabitants of the island, and can choose to interact with them, or not. There is a large degree of freedom in this game for you to shape the world how you want. You can pursue a character’s entire story line, unlock an ending, then go back and play another. Or you can take turns engaging multiple characters, learning about their past and what brought them to Sanctuary Island. The world is your oyster.

Not a fan of "Taurren" or "Talon"'s names.

I was pretty confused by 0:26 Buriko's alternate image. I thought it was either a different character, a gender-swapped image of her, or like a re-color. It definitely could use a more monochrome change, like "Faki"'s is at 0:30, which looks great.

I'd recommend shuffling the 1st screenshot (the one with the colored balls minigame) deeper into the media reel, so it's not the first one people see. After all, this game is about the characters first and foremost, not this minigame, right?

Hey @rafidev ! Thanks for your kind words and question! You can, in fact, get to know every single character on a single playthrough. You only need to start a new playthrough if you want to unlock the alternate endings for the characters whose storylines you've finished.

I think this looks SUPER fun and right up my alley. I love cute monsters, I'm super queer, and I'm really enthused about the chance to try different endings and make choices that really impact the characters! I'm especially excited about how guiding them through recovery and getting to know the characters would work, and am absolutely voting for this to be greenlit and taking a long look at the kickstarter for when I can contribute.

One thing I'm wondering- can you only get with one character on each play through, or can you get to know and date all of them? I'm just curious on how it will be formatted. Very excited about this.

@Kimchi! Thank you so much for giving us the chance to explain.

And yeah, we're super passionate (maybe slightly insane) around here! We'll be doing streams of our NanoReno on Twitch during the 2nd, 7th, 9th and 14th 9-midnight if you want to swing by! I'll be making the announcement now with links and what not.

We really want a game where everyone can find someone who looks like them, so thank you so much for your feedback to help us improve. <3

Thanks for the clarification! You're obviously really passionate about this project. Looking forward to seeing a sample of your work in your NaNoRenO game.

But again, I really, really appreciate your input and your passion for those of us who don't have nearly as much representation as we should. I hope together we can make Love Mythos an amazing game for everyone!

5/5

PS! We all talked about our concern that Sampala is not coming across as the luscious dream girl that she is, so the artist is going to edit her assets so her fat is more apparent. Thank you for coming with us on this journey!
