is it still being made?

Is what still being made? The game? Of course! I’ve just been taking a break to work on another project since Chapter 3 was finished. 

good game, played the third chapter a while ago and now I'm here again because I thought about a question

is there a way to receive notifications or something when the game gets a new update? :v 

Thank you for playing! Hmm I think if you follow me on itch it should show up in your feed? Otherwise I usually post about it on Twitter! And for Golden users I can send an email through itch. 

I'm gonna follow you here then, but I have no twitter account (or money) :v 

anyways, thanks :v

I played the first two chapters about four months ago, and am just now getting around to starting Chapter 3. But when I load my game to the ending of Chapter 2, it says that 3 is coming soon, and then takes me back to the main menu. I just updated and thought all games were updated automatically when that happened, but I guess not. How do I get Chapter 3?

You have to re-download Arena Circus directly to get the update! Let me know if after doing that it’s still doesn’t work. ^^

I uninstalled it, but when I try to reinstall it it says the game isn't compatible with my platform or itch. I'm not sure what to do. :/

Are you sure you downloaded the correct version? There are three, one for Windows, one for Mac, and one for Linux. 

(Edited 1 time)

It's not even asking me which version I want. I click the "Install" button that's on the right side of the screen, underneath the game icon, and it gives me the message about not being compatible. It worked fine the first time I installed it months ago. Oh well. It's probably just a problem with my laptop. I'll keep trying to figure it out.

Hmm, I'm not sure what screen you're on, but if you scroll down from this link:

You should get the options to download the right files!

omg i fell in love right away when i saw this game's poster. Something kept pulling me in and i'm glad i followed my heart because now im addicted! ! This is all i can ever ask for. Never such game can make me nervous as when battles happen or when things trouble Aldrich. However as i got into chapter 2(i started 2 hours ago and i got so hooked haha), i ran across a problem. Im currently at the scene where lilie picks up a necklace(?) that dropped from the drawer she was cleaning. A servant calls her out then an error page pops up. May i know what do i do after this? Thank you so much! 

Thank you so much for playing! I'm so happy you enjoy it. I found the bug you were talking about and think I've fixed it! Please re download the game and let me know if you have any further trouble. ^^

Thank you so much for fixing it! I did as told and am now excitedly waiting for your next update. Btw it scared me so much during that particular night at that creepy mansion. You played with powerlessness so well that I couldnt stop thinking about it even when i was already in bed. You got your message across really clearly so i just wanted to say great job! For real though ! ! <3 <3

Hiii! I just finished my first play through, thought I'd let you know of some bugs I've come across. 

Arena Circus (regular) keeps telling me the Golden password is wrong. I restarted and put it in several times, being extra careful with capitalization and ! placement. For every time I had put the password in, it duplicated the Harlequin Boots and Shirt.

I moved to Arena Circus Golden instead, and besides some typos in the beginning portion, every thing went fine until the very end (Aldrich talking about the resistance, which I guess is the end of chapter 3 but I don't think there is a way of checking what chapter I am on?).  The scene from the inn where the group talks about getting a futon starts to play repeatedly, with L&A dressed for bed from the chapter end scene lol. After skipping forward, the main menu finally comes up... and that's when I realize I hadn't saved until before the duel! x( (A saving point after chapters might be a luxury, but a good idea!)

Anyway, I love this game regardless and cannot wait for more!! You are doing an amazing job! The story is captivating and all the characters are fun. I enjoy the interactions between the characters and I LOVE the random drama/events that occur around town! I will definitely be playing this game over and over. :)

I'll get on those bugs as soon as I can so you can get those Golden benefits on your regular game. Thanks for your support! And thank you for your kind comments ;u; They made me really happy to read.

Finally got a chance to sit down and check this out! May I ask when you downloaded the game/what version you have? (4.1/4.2, etc)


1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

I did! I play, probably to many ;D, Visual novels and this has been a wonderful story so far! I adore VNs that add extra interaction (without it being tedious.) and choices seem to matter which is always great. I even got a friend interested in it after talking it up in our discord server anime channel.

2. What was your favorite part?

Every scene with Natalia? ;D Not sure I have an overall favourite? I enjoyed the creepy STAY AT MY HOUSE MUAHAHAHA part, mostly trying to work out what was happening cause there was something off (and it still caught me off guard even with the foreshadowing talk earlier with the wifes master.). I also loved the dance! The ghost of the bookstore! Awkward boob touching after knocking future wife down.... Oh i can't really choose lol. It's been a nice time throughout.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I found it fine, at least personally I had no problem with how it was set.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Natalia ;D Though that is also partly serious. I adore her and I love it when there are scenes with her. Lets talk about that great romance brewing by talking about characters in a book that are literally us ;D. A+. Would recommend.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

Well no surprises here lol. Obviously I romanced Aldrich Natalia. I didn't find it difficult though I do have a tendency to save constantly and explore as much as possible so perhaps I just got lucky with hitting her right options and meeting her randomly.

At least it seems alright. Her Master was asking me about her whilst we danced and giving me his approval so I assume I'm on the right track =p

Either way I am looking forward to the next bit! Can't wait to see the wife again and read some fanfic about ourselves in book form.

Thank you for spreading the Arena Circus love! Ahhh another Natalia fan! I’m so glad ;u; Haha that boob touch CG was the best to draw xD Thanks so much for playing and all the lovely comments. I hope you enjoy chapter 4! I’m also happy to hear that you roam around a lot, I’m never sure how many of the free roam scenes people actually find. I always feel like they’re so easy to get and then I’m like well... I programmed it xD 

i began playing this game in about april and was so excited for this chapter! i loved the moment with leslie and mc and him getting flustered then startled when he realized who it was hehe!!! it was so cute and funny. the art is so captivating because it captures each moment fantastically. also, i've really wanted to be able to have leslie and aldrich together so it's awesome that we can get them together even though we can't currently play as aldrich!!!!!! (though i still really want to romance him too! i'll just have to do two playthroughs haha) i love love love the music and i just can't imagine how much work goes into this with all the branching and such!!!!!! such kudos to you for such an innovative and original concept and game. i love this and cannot wait to see what's next!!!!!!

Deleted post

Hello! I've responded to you on twitter. ^^ I'll try to fix this issue as soon as possible!

How do you move your files from the "original" game to the Golden version? I see that you've updated it so you can, but am unsure where to find out how to do it. :)

If you start a new game on your regular Arena Circus, there will be a prompt to input a password. After you input it, all of the Golden extras will be unlocked! I'm realizing I didn't send out the password, so I'll do it now! 

Hey, so i really wanted to thank you for this amazing game, and for it to be completely free, im so into the story!, i've already played like five times, waiting for chapter 4, im really going for the romance with Natalia she's so hot, and i would appreciated if you put more romantic scenes with her and Lilié, but other than that i'm so amazed with this game, the fight scenes, the ambience, the characters it's just so awesome , Thank you :D (im from South America, so, sorry if i get some mistakes in my english)

I'm so glad to hear you like Natalia! I haven't heard much from the Natalia romance side so that makes me happy. >w< Your English is perfect, no worries! Thank you so much for playing!


This game has been... 

absolutely amazing. 

To be honest, I wasn't looking for bugs or anything while I played the game, mostly because I just wanted to bask in it's glory and enjoy it. I will for sure be buying Arena Circus Golden sometime soon. And just to make sure, I will get updates is I buy it now, right? 

1.) THE SOUNDTRACK. MY EARS HAVE BEEN BLESSED. So many VNs I've come across have hideous, overused, or annoying soundtracks, but this soundtrack is fun. It's new and different, in a great way. It really gives you a feel for them game before you start to play it. 

2.) The story line is fantastic. There's also a lot of content, which is amazing. It's a great game. There's always something happening but it never feels rushed. The story feels fresh. I know the whole idea of magic users and humans partnered isn't knew, but this VN takes it into a whole new level. Very enjoyable. 

3.) The characters are actually enjoyable. Their personalities weren't exaggerated. They seemed real. They had thoughts and emotions. Most importantly, they had personalities. 

I'm in love with this game and can't wait for more. Is it possible for you to make the soundtrack available, even if it needs to be purchased like a normal song would? I'd love to listen to this music while working :) 

Oh man, thank you so much! Reading this really made my day. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I really love these characters and it makes me so happy to hear that their personalities are coming through. ;u; I hope you continue to enjoy the story! 

I'm also glad to hear you like the soundtrack! I'm not a composer so I wouldn't dream of charging anything for the songs I put together, but I did upload them on to soundcloud for you!

Ahh! Thank you so much! Now I can listen to all of the wonderful music. Thanks again :) 

Hi again!

So, after fighting a lot with my own derps and with the bugs, I've managed to finish chapter 3! (thank you again for helping me by the way)

I'll answer your questions as always, and then make some more spoilery comments at the end. The usual thing XD

Though, since I'll be talking about the new chapter in the questions, I'll go ahead and put a
-------------SPOILER ALERT-------------

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 
Yes, a lot! I got frustrated with the bug, but other than that, I enjoy this game more and more, so nothing new here!

2. What was your favorite part?
I still love the ribbon chase and Basil's questline, and all the part in the manor in chapter 2 was sooo awesome. I believe I've already told that before, but it was so unsettling and weird and creepy and I LOVED it! Now, I also really really love the ball part overall. The one part that killed me was when dancing with Siegfried after dancing with Aldrich. Him being so "you make such a cute couple" and Lilie nearly having a heart attack while denying wildly was so fun and cute at the same time. I love how she doesn't see how obvious it is XD. On a side note, the battle in chapter 3 was AWESOME! I had so much fun with it!

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?
Still fine with that - as always, I like how you deal with very dramatic moments and very funny ones, and how they alternate, no problems here.

4. Who is your favorite character?
Well, you already know all about my love for Siegfried, but I think at this point I like Santana even more. I don't know why I love him SO much, but well, I love him more and more with each chapter haha. Also, when I was looking at the event list and seeing all the "dance" ones, I was laughing a lot at the "Why Would Anyone Dance With Santana", and then, upon reaching that point, I did laugh even more when I saw that Lilie basically thought that herself XD

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?
Well, you already know it's Aldrich. As for the difficulty, all bugs aside, well, I still think it's not difficult to get on tracks for the romance, but it's actually easier than I thought to miss events or make a bad choice or two and fail with the romance. So I'll say it's easy to start a romance, but harder to keep it?
Now again, I've derped sooo badly with it. While I did the first chapter correctly the last time I've played, this time for some reason I focused so much on the best battle strategy that I forgot about the choices needed for Aldrich's APs, and I didn't realize I was missing things until reaching chapter 3... And the funniest thing is that because of the bug, I wouldn't have been able to get the right events anyway haha. 

On a side note, I think a great addition would be a veeery short description of the events in the Library. Even something as simple as "Aldrich and Lilie eat at the Spice Rack" - it wouldn't reveal anything big, but it would help a little bit people to either locate some of the events or simply know wich ones are relevant to their playthrough. It could be something that unlocks once you finish the chapter even, so there would be no real spoilers at all.

Man, now I want to draw Santana haha!

Anyway, that was really cool! Can't wait for the next chapters! 

Santana always cracks me up because of his music, it starts playing and I just lose it xD (oh god I'm rhyming)

Thanks so much for all your comments, I always love hearing feedback, and of course the bug fixes were very helpful too! I'll consider making the library a bit easier to navigate as well. Some of the scene titles can be misleading! 

Sorry you had to play through such a buggy version of the game xD

And if you draw Santana I'd love to see!

Of course I'll show you!

And you actually talked about something I forgot to say. I have the same thing with his music - it's my favorite from the characters' themes. I also really like how it goes well with Lucy's music. While the tracks are very similar, Santana's is wild and quite dissonnant, while Lucy's more noble and harmonious. It's so perfect for them since they make a great pair but are so very different one from another

(Edited 3 times)

I feel like this could be turned into an anime. It has an interesting story. Can't wait for more routes. When will it be finished?

Haaaa I would love seeing this animated xD I can't really say when it will be finished... so far it's consistently taken me a year to finish one chapter, so in theory it'll be another three years at the least, but I'm really hoping I can get it done sooner than that. 

(Edited 2 times)

Aaah I've been waiting for the new chapter so eagerly and playing for two days right now - since I replay from the very beginning each time, so it's starting to be quite long now haha!

I was planning to make a huge comment with all of my opinions, bug reports and so on, as always, but unfortunately I got utterly stuck in the game. I mean, not stuck per se, but I can't seem to make it to the last romance flag in chapter 2, and I don't want to play chapter 3 without getting the romance right, so in the end I'd really love to ask you for a hint, if that's not too much to ask...

--------------- SPOILER ALERT!!! ---------------

I feel really frustrated about that I must admit since I don't usually get stuck in VNs but oh well, it means the game is really tricky  at some points I guess - or I'm really derping haha (it may be possible since I already derped with the game, but I'll expand on that when I'll be able to write the proper review).

So yeah, if you don't remember my previous comments, I'm trying Aldrich's route. I've managed to get all of his scenes in the first chapter - well, at least the romance / AP ones. But then, I've got a problem with chapter two. All along the first part of the chapter, at the manor, I'm getting the "romantic version" of events, but then I can't seem to get the event called "In the Nick of Time" in the library. I'm utterly confused at what it is and if it's related or not to the romance, but since I was still getting the romantic versions of events after being done with that part of the game anyway, I thought it'll be fine. 

I get the romantic vibes all along until the end of chapter 2 in various events, like the one with the fake date, but then I don't seem to get the "romantic chapter-end event" - I had one in chapter 1, and I assume chapter 2 has one too since you have the "The Yuri Portion of the Program" for Natalia, wich I got in another playthrough. I assume "Love Circus" is for Aldrich, but I can't seem to be able to unlock it, and I'm at loss at what to do. I've tried to advance to chapter 3 anyway, but since Aldrich says he promised he'd dance with Leslie, I guess I failed to achieve the romance requisites of chapter 2.

I also thought the "A Date Gone Well" event may be somehow related since I didn't get it either and it didn't seem to have any relation with the fake date job, but I don't know...

So yeah, I'd really love to get some kind of hints about these events or how to achieve the romance requistes in chapter 2 so the bal part can unfold as I'd like it to in chapter 3.

And also, I know the guide you did could help me, but unfortunately I'm in such a tight life situation and so poor I barely manage to pay for the web, wich I need since it's my only money income, and even less for my food, so paying even 5 bucks for a game guide is something I can't afford now, but this game really makes me feel better, and I don't want to be forced to wait maybe for months to be able to buy the guide or try again and again and start to be really frustrated at the game since I really have no clue about what to do... I'm very sorry if I bother you with that, and if you really don't want to give any hints or solutions, then I'll keep trying, but I'd be really grateful even for some small things. If you don't want to reveal it here, I can also give you an email adress for that or something.

Still, thank you for the great game, even if I'm a bit frustrated right now!

Thank you so much for playing! I have no problems giving you a hint, I'd hate for you to feel frustrated! The lack of romance options in chapter 3 could just as easily be a bug on my part too, so I'll check that out. If you shoot me an e-mail or someplace else I can contact you, I'll help!

Sure, you can email me on

Thank you so much!

Hey there, I seem to be in quite a similar situation. (Then again, the fault may lie in my choices.)So, I don't get the chance to dance with Aldrich at the end of Chapter 3 (Oh, the terror ;-; ) because he prefers Leslie... It's not the only time I feel something go wrong though. I want to go along with Aldrich's route so badly, yet I can't even seem to get the chances to chat with him at times. That said, I'd prefer to be able not to go back to chapter 1 and play it all over again just so that I can romance Aldrich. And believe me, I love him so much, I'd be delighted to be able to follow through with his route! It's just that... It would be very sad to me if somehow I locked him out of romance and now I've just been going on with some unidentified route I don't even want to follow... 
I love this game so badly, same as the characters, all of them - thus it would be lovely if I could just be nice to them as well, without necessarily cutting off any possible romances. I feel like I'm such a meanie to Natalia now just so that maybe, maybe the route will somehow go back to Aldrich :c 
That's why I would be really grateful for some feedback as well - would it be okay for you to email me and help an otome-gamer in need? :3

The main issue aside, I have a problem with the gallery - I can't see it in its full size and the latest CGs are cut off, I can barely see them at all. Is there some way to scroll through the gallery? If there is, then I really can't seem to find it... 
And finally, it's just my personal opinion, but I find the music somewhat unfitting at times. Sometimes not dramatic enough, sometimes too dramatic. It gets repetitive at times as well. It stood out the most in Chapter 2. Again, it is just my opinion, but I'm sure you can manage a much better soundtrack nonetheless :P (Please don't take it the wrong way, I don't want to sound mean but I just can't find the right words to stay politically-correct ;-; )

Now that's enough with the bad stuff! 
I want to thank you
Thank you for creating such an entertaining game. At first I was a bit hesitant whether to play it or not, but now that I have, I am SO glad I downloaded it anyway! It's all I've been doing recently in my free time haha. I also love the possibilities to do this or do that and have it my way. I don't always get the feeling when playing otome games in general, but this time I definitely felt the sense of free-will. And that's one of the most important factors in role-playing games I think - giving someone a set of choices and showing them the result of their actions so that what they do matters  (in my case it's being unable to romance Aldrich apparently, yes, I can't help but be sour about it :') no no no, please don't look at me like that, I'm just joking! I love Arena Circus either way don't worry!).
What stands out the most to me in the game overall is probably the character creation and their personalities - they all seem so entertaining, with stories to tell, their flaws and quirks and their good sides too. It makes them feel alive. Even the side characters are charming! Yes, even that Santana bastard :P  And I just adore the little side stories the characters have, I mean hey, all these love triangles are so exciting ;) That Librarian though!
Anyway, I just want to get to know them more and more with each and every day that passes in-game!

To finish off, thanks again for allowing me to indulge in the game! I am so excited to see the full game once it's out! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and never stop doing what you love! I look forward to the release :) 

Hello, thank you for playing! The only way to get locked out of a romance with Aldrich is by pushing him and Leslie together, which you have to make several choices to do, so I wouldn’t worry about that. Not romancing Aldrich doesn’t mean you’re automatically romancing Natalia, either. And being mean to Natalia doesn’t affect your relationship with Aldrich one way or another xD If you give me your e-mail, I can give you some tips on Aldrich, but it might require you going back!

I’m sorry about the gallery, I’m not sure what the issue is. When I last tested it it ran fine for me, would you mind telling me what kind of computer you’re on and what OS you’re running? I’ll try to work that out. 

I’m sorry you don’t like the music, I’m not a composer so that really is the best I can do. ^^;  

I’m glad you like the game otherwise though! Thank you for your kind comments, I am also very excited for the game to be done. ;u;

Oh alright, that does definitely make it all seem just a bit sweeter, maybe I haven't messed up completely ^-^

If you have the time, my email is I appreciate it a lot! 

I'm on Windows 10 and I'm pretty sure my computer perimeters are not the issue, maybe it's got to do with the resolution but perhaps we could discuss it further using emails, so that it doesn't get messy here on As you may have already guessed, I'm not here very often so I would reply much quicker using gmail as well

If you're not a composer that's not an issue at all! I could also provide you with many online music banks if you feel like it may help you out! I'm more than willing to help! :3 

Thanks again and yay, let's be excited together, then!

keeps crashing when i wear certain clothes somewhere before ch3...

Oh no! If you could give me the names of the clothes and send screenshots of the crash screen, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’ll try to see if I can recreate the issue.

when i try to pay with pay pal it says the transaction failed for some reason? lol idk if youd know anything but im at a loss on what to do bc it only seems to be doing it to this game

I'm sorry I'm really not sure! A few other people have had this problem. I've checked my PayPal settings but haven't found anything that would prevent transactions from going through. I apologize for the inconvenience!

Me too T_T

I got the same problem...cannot pay via Paypal.

I bought another game "Blackberry Honey" right now on without problem.

Are you sure to accept International payment?

I'm not sure what else to do, I don't have it set to block international payments, and I've always allowed currencies that aren't in USD. ; ;  If you know of any other setting I should check please let me know, but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

Yes,It's weird /:

I was able to pay in February with Paypal...

For now I always get a "Payment failed",cannot reach Paypal it seems?

Tested with Chrome and Firefox,in case the browser was the culprit.

Maybe the problem come from

That got me thinking! I checked my itch settings and lo and behold there was one setting I could try changing. Do you mind trying to purchase the game again and let me know if it goes through?

(Edited 1 time)

Hi i bought the gold version that i think comes with a guide for ch.1 and 2 but i only paid $3 so did the guide cost extra? How do I buy just the guide if that is so? I can't find it even after i downloaded the game on my desktop app and just to my pc help?

Hello! I recently sent out another e-mail with a link to the updated guide to everyone who previously purchased Arena Circus Golden. Please let me know if you don't receive it! Sorry about the delay!

ahh just got it my bad! thank youuu 

i love this game! Keep it up it's awesome!

No my bad, I forgot to send it out, so thank you for reminding me. I'm so glad you like it! ^^

(Edited 1 time)


Where is my Arena Circus Golden previously owned?

I can DL only the light version by now...

EDIT:Mail sent.

Sorry about that! I'll send a link to a download available to people who have previously purchased the game.

(Edited 2 times)

Okay ^^

I'll wait patiently.


Edit:If I add 10 dollars to my previous purchase,I'll be able to DL ALL the next updates?

(Edited 1 time)

Nope! Because you've already purchased it, you have access to all future updates! When the full game is finished it will be $10, but because you bought early no need to buy anything again. Thank you for your support!

I've just sent out the e-mail, so let me know if you don't receive it or have any issues!

Link received,Thanks a lot ^^

But If I want to support you because you are awesome?

I'll add some money the next week...I'm not at home and I don't like to make payment with unknown PC.

You're too kind ;u; Thank you so much!

Do you have any plans for this game to have voices for the characters? And if so, would I be able to audition?

Unfortunately, I don’t have the resources to pay for voice actors. But! Maybe one day when it’s all done I can put aside some money for that. Thank you for your interest!

Shoot I would love to voice act for the game! You wouldn't have to pay me though, I'd rather do it for fun !


Haha man if I could find volunteers for all the parts I would definitely go for it xD I'd love to hear my babies talk!

Fyi I would not mind volunteering to voice act (i also dont mind being paid in brownines haha ;)

Oh man you're too kind! Maybe once I start chapter four I'll look into finding more volunteers... I didn't think there would be any interest!

There were no streams/reviews on the demo, right? 

I’m pretty sure no one’s reviewed Arena Circus or live streamed it, yes.

(Edited 1 time)

Then not anymore! Silly russian accented girl for an unwanted rescue.

I do like the game enough to punish myself through it fully. Punish - because it's heavy on lags and crashes for me, and I am impatient.

Are you just by yourself? O.o This game looks decent enough for a team of workers.

I'm sorry the game keeps crashing for you! There are a lot of files and it seems not to run well on some computers. Thanks so much for taking the time to play. And yes, I'm by myself. There used to be a team, but they all kind of had to jump ship before doing much. They did help me with outlining the story though!

(Edited 1 time)

Since I'm going to play it completely, would you like an "in-depth review" when I'd be done? I have a somewhat skill at writing complete nonsense that somehow makes good points about games. It's just an opinion everytime though. And I guess you kind of signed up for this kind of stuff with your questionnaire.

I have no opportunity to make all the points via playthrough because there is no time for me to just sit and brag about stuff over and over again. Also it's harder for me to say stuff then write it. 

I'd love a review! I love to hear feedback so I know what to improve on in the future.

I was thinking about trying out this game, but I might wait until chapter 3 comes out. I was wondering if you thought that was a good idea, or if you're planing on pushing chapter 3's release past October?

I think it’s a fine idea! I’ve got two of three extra BGs I wanted to add sketched, and they shouldn’t take me too long to complete. I’ll take my time with testing, as I don’t want any game breaking bugs to slip through, but I’d say chapter 3 will definitely be released sometime in October. I’ll have a more concrete date after I finish up the art. Thank you for your interest!

Hi, I've been trying to pay for your file at the $3.00 USD or more and I keep getting an error.  The error is "Failed to create PayPal transaction, please try again later."  I've tried a number of times and that error keeps happening.

I've never had a problem purchasing through the paypal portal on  before.  I just tried a payment with another game on and it went through without any problems.  Not sure what's going on as it doesn't seem to be an error at my end.

I'm so sorry about that! I was having some issues with PayPal but I got them settled recently. Would you mind trying one more time and letting me know if you're still having issues?

Tried again and I'm still getting the same error message.  Perhaps it's due to only having a credit card linked to my paypal account? Maybe your paypal account can't process credit card purchases?  I'm stumped at this point as it's the first time this has happened.  All my other paypal purchases here and through steam and other vendors are working fine.

I’m sorry, I’ve been looking into this but I have no idea what the issue can be. :/ Other payments are going through on my end. I do believe someone had a similar issue before, but I’m not sure how they fixed the problem. Really sorry about this!

"I think I found the issue! I updated my PayPal email and it hadn't yet been updated here. If you attempt to purchase again please let me know if it's working!" - this was what worked last time I think! Someone else noticed a different problem, that certain cards wouldn't work or something like that??

Anyway, I hope this problem can be fixed soon!

Thank you so much for the info!

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

Yeah! Seriously, it was impressive! I downloaded the game without reading too much about the structure and was pleasantly surprised to find it was episodic and plot heavy.

2. What was your favorite part?

The small bits of bonding, especially the ones showing how close and intimate Lilié and Aldrich are. Platonic or not, it's really sweet to see how much they care about each other.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

Oh no I really enjoyed the drama! I feel they meshed well, felt natural.

4. Who is your favorite character?

No clue, they're all really endearing! But also need to get to know them (the non main characters) better to choose.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

Aldrich, because of the added backstory! That's usually how I choose who to romance. Natalia was cute as heck but I feel like I need Lilié to get closer to her to want to romance her. That's also one reason I have trouble when you have to choose early who you want to romance.

I actually did find it a bit hard to romance characters, but I don't particularly mind. I kind of like it sneaking up on me, I like surprises and it feels more like a flowing story.

Looking forward to future content, and any possible future projects!

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Aldrich having known Lilié longer is definitely a romance that starts easier, you really have to dig to find Natalia's scenes so she and Lilié can bond. Thank you so much for playing, and I hope you enjoy Chapter 3!

I'm looking forward to it!

I enjoyed the Demo so much ! The story is very captivating and the characters are lovely , so I ended up getting attached to most of them ;D .When will the full game come out?

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

I really did! It was really interesting and unique and i can't wait for more.

2. What was your favorite part?

That we started bonding with the others such as Siegfried & Natalia, Leslie & Fenris
Also the roaming around.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I think it was well done.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Aldrich but I also like Leslie hes so cute.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I was a bit sad seeing we can't romance the other reavers but I went for Natalia and Aldrich after. But I really like Aldrich so I think i will stick with him :>

Leslie is my favorite! Thanks for playing, sorry about the lack of romance options xD None of the other people are really Lilié's type, unfortunately. 

(Edited 1 time)

LOL I had the funniest thought. It would be amusing if we could romance Santana.

HAHAHA oh god... that would be a love/hate relationship for sure. With a lot of emphasis on the hate part. 

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

I'm absolutely loving it!

2. What was your favorite part?

I love how interactive it is

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

i love how it jumps between the both, it works very well.

4. Who is your favorite character?

I have no particular fave, i love them all

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

i went with the GXG romance and it was a bit tricky at first untill i got into it.

I am desperate for the next chapter! i know you are busy but please soon!! i need it!

When there are more chapters i will be purchasing gold because im really loving this and you had done some amazing work.

Thank you so much for playing, I'm so glad you enjoyed! Chapter 3 will hopefully be out very soon, all the writing is done I'm just programming and getting some more art in there to say thanks to everyone for waiting. (:  I hope you like that one too!

If chapter 3 is as amazing as the first two (which I have no doubt it will be)  then I will throughly enjoy it, just as much as i did the first two.

Chapter 3's official release date is October 20th! Thank you for your support ^^

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

Yes! One of the best games I have ever played!

2. What was your favorite part?

Oh! My favorite part was when Santana got Lucy a birthday present. It was cute of him since he's only like that to Lucy.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

It was wonderfully balanced. 

4. Who is your favorite character?

Aldrich or Santana. I can't choose.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I started with Aldrich and my gosh. I did not know where to start until I looked at the guide. xD I think it's just because I have no common sense though. But when I got in the right path, no gosh! Aldrich became my favorite character besides Santana! 

Santana and Lucy are the best, I love moments with them because I didn't get to do much with them in the first chapter. It was really great to squeeze more of them in chapter 2. >w< I'm so glad to hear you like Aldrich! I can't wait to do the story from his perspective, he's one of my favorites too. thank you so much for playing and I hope you enjoy chapter 3!

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

Yes! It was simply wonderful!

2. What was your favorite part?

I liked the little moments the best- for some reason the whole thing with Basil was very memorable. He had nothing to do with the main plot and the MCs just helped him out anyway (in my game).  It helped me develop their characters in my head a lot more.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I think it was well-done- the switching didn't feel awkward or inappropriate.  The pacing of the story itself has me a bit confused, though, because at first I thought the story was going to follow Lilie and Aldrich as they progressed up to battle the king but, considering our current pace, I now wonder if we're going to end the story with them just reaching level two. Which wouldn't be a bad thing! I love the story- I'm just wondering how it can be brought to a close in four more episodes.

4. & 5. Who is your favorite character? Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

Natalie. I love duty-bound perfectionist types. Furthermore I'm excited to see what "being together" would mean in this world- considering that they are both harlequins. Homophobia doesn't seem to be an issue in this setting but can harlequins marry? How do they balance their responsibilities to their wife/husband and their Reaver? I assume if the can get married then they'd need their Reaver's permission to. So many questions I hope to find the answers to!

The little moments are my favorite! I loved writing Basil, his scenes were so much fun (and so sad) to do.  I've struggled with the pacing of this since I have a lot I want to accomplish, but I can tell you this— there will almost certainly be time skips bigger than the two a day skips I did in chapter two. Natalia and Lilié's relationship is going to be so fun to explore. Thanks so much for playing!

I'm playing the free version for now, but will be buying the full one when I'm able to. Will downloading it make me have to start over, or will my progress from the free version be transferred over?

And now onto the questions.

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

Yes, very much. It's the most fun visual novel I've played because it isn't just reading a story and making choices every now and then. Getting to go on quests, earn money, buy clothes, and battle people makes it so much more entertaining.

2. What was your favorite part?

I know this was a very minor, unimportant moment, but I love when Aldrich helps Min with his romance problem by flirting with him. I thought it was adorable. (And I'm not gonna lie. I ship them even though they'll never end up together. Lol)

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I think every good story should have both serious and comedic moments, and they work perfectly well the way they're done in this game.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Aldrich. He's too adorable. I'm very anxious to be able to play as him and see everything from his perspective.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

Natalia. It's been very easy because I've gotten most of her scenes on the first try. I'm very excited for her and Lilie (who I renamed Sophie) to end up together in a future chapter.

Thank so much for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed! I have so much fun writing the little side quests, so I'm happy to hear one of them was your favorite part xD 

I think right now, buying Golden will make you have to start over. I'm working on a way to have data simply transfer over, so I apologize about that. 

You're very welcome. I imagine it's very fun coming up with stuff like that. ^^

Oh okay. It's not a problem. :)

1. Did you enjoy it overall? 

That would be a yes

2. What was your favorite part?

I really liked the fighting scenes, they were very well written and the timed interactive part really added to making the reader feel engaged

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I think the comedy and drama were in good proportion to each other and when it switched it did' come off as an awkward switch.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Think I'm going to have to Say Aldrich, but I really enjoyed most of the characters, even Santana.   Not so much Lucy but I feel like he's there to be hated.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I ended up going for Aldrich, but I'm disappointed not to be able to go for Fenris or the others.  I'm looking forward to the Aldrich point of View :)

Thank you so much for making this game, I love the plot and the writing so much, at first I wasn't so interested in the artwork, but it has grown on me and everything is really great.  I will try to pay for the Golden version, probably when chapter 3 comes out 

Thank you for playing! Aldrich is one of my favorites too. I also have a soft spot for Lucy, but... he pretty much is there to be hated right now xD I'm happy the art art grew on you! I was trying to give it a colorful, bold style that really screamed circus. Chapter 3's official release date is October 20th! 

Are we only allowed to play as the girl or could we play as the boy?

Eventually you'll be able to play as both- but the game's not finished yet. Right now Only Lilié's route up to chapter 2 is complete.

dv;s,dmf i was gonna donate to buy the golden circus but i dont have paypal im !! im gonna convince my brother to help me make one tho bc i lovee lilie and aldrich sm 

Oh that's so nice of you! Thank you so much ;u;

LOL I'm being so creepy. release day for chapter 3 says around end of May I check on very last day of the month. I can't wait to see cross dressed Aldrich and Lilie battle a duke on his own turf. XD

Sorry! The writer needed more time than anticipated ^^; I can't give you a confirmed date yet, but it's in production!

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

Hi! Just an update- so the other writer is no long working on the project, as she wasn't able to fit it in her schedule. Therefore, I can confirm that I am making progress on the script! I'm hoping for at least an August  release, but we'll see!

 Chapter 3's official release date is October 20th! 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!counting down the days ^_^

heya been a long time since i last checked in, any new chapters?

Not yet unfortunately! Chapter 3's writer needed a bit more time than expected.

Please tell me the next chapter is almost complete and my obsessive page stalking will soon be rewarded with adorable pointy-eared goodness! I have been behaving, promise!

xD It is almost complete art wise! Just two cgs left and some expressions for the new sprites. Someone else is writing chapter 3, and they just finished their exams, so they should be starting back up from their break again soon!

Can't wait! ♥

I'm so super sad about this but thank you for the update! I really can't wait so I wish you the best of luck! =]

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

OMG YES!! I usually don't like playing as more uptight girls like Lilie, but turns out I loved her! Also, Aldrich is precious asf.

2. What was your favorite part?

Idk why but I really liked when Lilie (SPOILER FOR ANYONE WHO HASNT PLAYED YET!) finds Aldrich about to kill himself because of the noble lady and everything that goes down from there.

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

You could tell when parts were meant to be funny and when parts where meant to be funny and it didn't come off as jumpy at all.

4. Who is your favorite character?

ALDRICHHH I love that precious lil boi but i'm also curious about Lucy and Santana

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I didn't really have anyone in mind tbh but I ended up getting with Aldrich (at least I think by the way him and Lilie acted towards each other.. It seemed like he had a lil crush on her) and I love them together !! it wasn't super hard to romance them at all and their interactions were 11/10 sweet

Ahh, I'm so glad you ended up liking Lilie! She's a lot of fun to write. I was sort of worried about that scene in chapter two, because it's definitely a tone shift, so it makes me happy to hear it's your favorite. ;u; Thank you so much for playing and I'm so glad you enjoyed! Aldrich is definitely one of my favorites too, especially in his more serious moments (although his jokes are great). I hope you like chapter 3 just as much!

heya, haven't checked in in a while, are there any new chapters?

Working on Chapter 3 now! There are two out of five/six cg's done, new outfits for each sprite, and all the backgrounds have been finished. I'm hoping to have it done by the end of april, and to code and test it to have it released in May!

Hah hah, the best laid plans... I don't think I'll get it completely done by the end of may, but I've put another project on hiatus to focus more exclusively on this one, so the art should be finished at least! I have another writer helping me with the next two chapters, so really it's the art slowing me down this time.

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

Yes! I am so excited for the following chapters!

2. What was your favorite part?

The beginning when Aldrich kept on surprising me with ridiculous nicknames.

Although beating Lucy and Santana came in as a close second. :D

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

The transitions were fine, realistic in my opinion.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Aldrich! He is so optimistic and easygoing yet clever when it comes to battling and manners.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I am attempting to get Aldrich but I feel like I am scoring higher with Natalia based on how much our relationship has been mentioned by others. I think both are pretty easy to romance though.

Final Notes: I absolutely love your soundtrack! The music never fails to get me pumped up for the game play.

Oh my god, seeing you say you liked the soundtrack made me so happy ;u; I'm not a composer and really it was just me fiddling around in GarageBand trying to find something that worked... thank you so much!

I'm glad you liked Aldrich! In the demo, everyone mentioned that Natalia seemed very difficult to get closer to, but I think I've gotten a good balance between both romances. Of course, you can't have your cake and eat it to, so if Aldrich starts drawing away from you, that might be an indicator that you're on Natalia's path!

Thank you for playing, and I hope you enjoy the next chapter!

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

Holy cow! That was "messing around in GarageBand"?! DANG! Absolutely loved the story and soundtrack, both had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I did notice a few issues just in spelling and using the incorrect word tense, but very easy to overlook. If you don't have someone already proofreading the game script, I'd be ecstatic to offer my help. I've only recently started with renpy, but I'm learning the interface quickly, and the engine is well designed to be receptive to fast changes.

Getting back to gushing, however...
ASHFJSKLAOMFLADGMA SO GOOD. The writing is intense and really draws the reader in, the music sets the scene perfectly, the interactions between characters are smooth and enjoyable, the dialouge choices are clear and provide interesting differences. Pardon the run-on sentences, but I just - gah! - this game is sooo good. I was cracking up a few times at the comedy gold in some of these scenes. Looking forward to more.

Nooo you're gonna make me cry ; ; Thank you so much for your kind comments, they really made my day. I'd love to know what parts you laughed at! I do have some people who help me test, but not anyone who really seriously goes through and proofreads. For chapter 3 and 4 though, I have someone else writing, so that should help narrow down the errors with us both checking it out. But thank you though, I'm not gonna turn down extra help if you're up for it!

I really liked the soundtrack too. My favorite is the battle theme music during duels. It reminds me of a Pokemon gym battle for some reason but I love it.

Haha wow, I love the pokemon music so I'm honored you think so! xD

I loved this game! Very intriguing and interesting!! Cannot wait for more!

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

Ohmygod, YES! Is that even a question?

2. What was your favorite part?

The mansion was definitely intriguing but I did like the battles the most. Especially the training ones with Natalia and Siegfried!

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I loved the comedy, drama, romance, all of it together! It fit well and I don't think it could've been done better.

4. Who is your favorite character?

Mari, was her name? She was so quiet and nice, I loved her

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

Natalia, obviously. No, I didn't find it difficult. It was put together quite well. ^-^

Haha 'obviously' xD I'm glad you liked Natalia! She's a sort of different character for me to write, so it's always interesting seeing what she says next xD I'm also happy to hear you like Mari! I don't hear much about her, but she is a sweetie. Thank you for playing, and I hope you like chapter 3!

Hi there! I just want to say keep up the good work

1. Did you enjoy it overall?

I am obsessed and can't wait for the next chapters. But no rush!

2. What was your favorite part?

When Lilie goes looking for the ghost in the library….there was an actual ghost

FREE ROAM in the mansion! I had no qualms about stealing clothes from a dead person XD

3. There are a lot of comedic moments, but was the drama included in a way that was able to put the comedy aside, or did it just seem an odd jump from comedy?

I like the funny parts there were jumps not odd ones. I like the patches of serious my favorite is "my life is not a mess"

4. Who is your favorite character?

First let me just say the character designs are on point! I love them. I don't know why but I love the fabulous Lucy and Sanata the violent kleptomaniac pair. Min is so adorable I want to see more of him.

5. Who did you start to romance? Did you find it difficult romancing the person you wanted?

I was too busy trying to figure out just what kind of world I was dealing with and I unintentionally romanced Natalia. LOL. On my second run through I romanced Aldrich. It wasn't difficult, and I love his heart-to-heart scenes.

Thank you, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! The next chapter will be out very soon. ^^

The ghost scene was really fun to write, all of the free roam scenes are really, it gives me a chance to kind of unwind from the plot and just go crazy xD I'm glad to see some love for Lucy and Santana, Lucy is so fabulous his outfits are my favorite haha.

Aldrich's scenes are probably some of my favorites, because he generally acts so carefree, it's a lot of fun for me to write him in those moments when he's being more genuine.

I hope you like the next chapter just as much!
