What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hello, dear players,
I'm Lucy, the only developer of this game.
Just let you know that this game currently doesn't support English.

As I'm the only person that is working on this game, it definately isn't as good as other commercial otome games, and it certainly does not represent the average level of Chinese visual novel games.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Because the developer has a full-time job which isn't related to this game, she could only work on this game on weekends. The estimation time of completion is not known....
Life has been really hard on me. I can't promise when I could finish making the English version. I'm very SORRY!
But in the same time, I would recommend Visual Novel Maker, a game development tool by Degica. It is because of this tool that I could create this visual novel completely on my own, while I don't have any coding experiences.
Also, I want to thank -INO and 苍亖(their sina microblog name),two artists who have drawn these character pictures. Thank you very much!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The complete version will have more story lines than the current version.
However, because each character's story is individual, therefore players won't have trouble such as having to wait for the ending of a specific character's story. Currently all 12 stories are completed(but without English translation).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?


Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

The Game of The Playful is a visual novel created by one person (characters are drew by outsourced artists). The engine used by this game is Visual Novel Maker.
In this visual novel, you'll play as the Heroine and experience twelve individual stories. In each story, you will establish either friendship or romantic relationships with a man. All twelve stories are independent from each other, so you'll be dating with only one person in one story.
