About This Game

"I still haven't earned the right to speak your names..."

A prequel to the visual novel Muv-Luv Alternative Total Eclipse, which follows Takamura Yui and her friends during their time as surface pilot cadets.

Originally a novel written as a special bonus for buyers of the full set of DVD/Blu-rays of the "Total Eclipse" anime, it was later adapted into a game, which we're now making available on Steam! Follow the past of Takamura Yui, and see what made her into the woman she is at the time of Total Eclipse...


Kyoto, 1997. The capital of the Japanese Empire.

As the cherry blossoms fall in spring, Takamura Yui enters Yamayuri Girls' Surface Pilot Academy as a new cadet.
With the pride of a surface pilot in her heart, Yui trains daily with her fellow students.
But there's one student in particular that stands out to her above the rest... Yamashiro Kazusa.
Kazusa seems like everything that Yui wants to be, and Yui feels a mixture of sympathy and envy towards her.

And then, in 1998, the fateful day comes...
The BETA finally land on the Japanese mainland, advancing eastward with unstoppable force and eventually reaching the outskirts of Kyoto.
Yui and her companions are called to the battlefield.
What fate awaits these newly commissioned officers?


The story of a decades-long struggle to save mankind from destruction...

Beings of Extra-Terrestrial Origin and Adversaries of the Human Race. Unknown life forms first discovered on Mars in 1958. First contact with them was made on the moon in 1967, and by 2001, their unstoppable invasion of Earth had pushed humanity to the brink of extinction.

The world's nations attempted to fight back, each developing their own tactical surface fighters according to their own unique combat doctrine. But the BETA advance drove mankind from the Eurasian continent, and while the invasion is contained, for now, our attempts at containment are reaching their limits.
Can humanity escape from total and utter destruction?

The Tactical Surface Fighters (TSFs):
Humanoid weapons first used against the BETA in 1974.
Scientific advance has given mankind new ways to fight the BETA, and new TSFs are constantly being developed. As of 2001, the newest TSFs are the 3rd Generation Models.
