The final version of Chasing the Stars is available!

Hello, guys!

Our new BL Visual Novel, Chasing the Stars, was published ten days ago, but I didn't want to advertise it here until it got the final touches, hehe!

There's still an update planned... but after some bug fixing, text editing and all features put in place, I think the time has arrived!

Chasing the Stars is a BL fully uncensored Visual Novel, featuring amazing NSFW CGs by Kurosilver, a protagonist with dubious morals and a deep story plot of 120k words.

You have the option of seeing all the sexy stuff, censoring it all, seeing only +15 scenes or decide on each scene. You have also top or bottom options in each adult scene and two threesomes to enjoy! :steamhappy:

About This Game

A Hand in the Darkness is a visual novel set in a British boarding school in 1910. If you enjoy reading school stories, you will certainly love following the four main characters while they bond, struggle to pass their exams, fall in love, dream about their future, cope with their parents' expectations... You will find lots of friendship, tons of "first-time-falling-in-love" romance and a thrilling investigation when the boys find out Alex' life is being targeted.

Will they find out who is behind Alex' murder attempts? Will Alex manage to live up to his family expectations and succeed in entering Cambridge or Oxford? Or will he be too distracted by his love affair to think about his future?


- 100.000 words long story (around 10 hours of gameplay)

- Three routes with nine different endings!

- Suggestive CGs (no nudity)

- Love scenes written in detail (adult content warning)

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

This game contains explicit sex scenes between underage characters, although they are over the age of consent (16-17) and no adult is involved with them.

The art is suggestive but not fully explicit, but the text descriptions are long and detailed.

There're some mentions of alcohol, smoking and gambling.
