"A person's heart's warmth. The very spirit that keeps them alive and strong, especially in cursed frozen tundra. Some say you can sell it to gain power, while others believe it is it's own power. Either way, it did not change the fact that Ágirni sold her heart's warmth to a demon for the use of magick."

Simple as Snow is a kinetic visual novel about a caster named Lysa who is caught up in the middle of a sorceress scheme to steal the heart of a young king. If only it were about love and not the sorceress' sick plot to literally take his heart.

Simple as Snow is a kinetic novel, meaning it's strongly story based. All the backgrounds in the game were beautifully hand painted. This novella is over 14,000 words and has about an hour of game play. There are choices that give insight to the story if you choose to take the time to read them. Originally made for NaNoReno in 2016 with a team of one, but was released late because of life events.

Working on this made me want to continue the story and though it might not be everything I wished for. I am happy. Please be aware there is some mild bloodshed and gore and thank you for taking the time to read this. This was an interesting journey and I hope that you enjoy the game.

As not a game, but purely a visual novel, I think this was perfect.

There were some minor spelling and grammatical mistakes, but other than that, Simple as Snow is very good and unique.

If you ever decide to make an upgraded version of Simple as Snow or make a sequel for it, I'd suggest giving the player/reader some more details on the connection between the main characters(Lysa and Cyris).

I think the foundation of this VN is pretty good and I think it'll be really interesting if you upgrade this into a "choose your own story" kinetic visual novel.

Thank you for the feedback. :) I'm glad you commented. I think that there's more to the story that can be developed and more to learn about these characters. There's nothing planned for a sequel, however I have thought about it. We'll see. Thanks for giving it a shot.

I'll be looking forward to your games, be it related to Simple as Snow or not ^^

Haven't played it yet, but it still looks good. I'm downloading it now ^^
