cool visual novel! props for having VA (esp. for a jam VN) when most visual novels, even premium ones, don't. the VAs did very well. i had a few nitpicks with the writing and such, but overall very enjoyable. it had a neat twist at the end, and i'd be interested in seeing where the story goes.

Tallara had never set foot on the ground, until he enlisted in the Spirelands Kingdom's Navy. Dispatched aboard the Airship Erebus, he hoped to drop in, throw some wind magic around, and return home to a life of luxury, a war hero. Instead, he's assigned to Flanker Section 33 where he's made to sweep the floors of the flanker berth, among other equally unheroic assignments.
On the frozen continent below, the Strikers of the Illanian Guard push back against a powerful invading army known as the Shuvur. With their brutal ice magic, the enemy has made significant advances into Illanian territory, devastating everything in their path.
Week after week, Tallara is left behind, deemed unready for combat. But strange events begin to unfold aboard the Erebus and his luck takes a turn when he, and two other misfits, Laverna and Magnus, are called to duty under a mysterious new squad leader, a beautiful Striker named Iris. Together, the four of them will dive from safety of the airship into the frozen world below on a special mission to end the war and reclaim their lost world.
Chapters one and two introduce the characters and give brief introduction to the world.
Kinetic VN of 11k words. 7 Sprited characters, 3 CGs, 10 original songs, full VO for most characters.

Thanks so much for playing the game, and doubly so for taking the time to make a video commentary! As a small team we don't get a ton of feedback, so it really means a lot to us to see the kinds of things people notice as they play through the game. I watched the whole thing tonight and I've shared it with the rest of the dev team so they can see too
We hope to be working on a patch for this soon and we'll definitely be fixing some of the things you guys mentioned. I know for sure that sprite placement for when and where the characters appear on the screen will be revisited. Portraits for off screen characters are a really good idea!
Thanks again! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the game. Be sure to check out our other VNs too if you get the chance! We'd love to hear from you.
thanks for checking out the vid! a lot of the nitpicks we had were mistakes we made in our first VN, so im glad the ramblings will help in some way lol! good to hear you're committed to supporting the game after release. speaking of, i forgot to mention in the vid, but a credit crawl at the end would be nicer than instantly going back to the title screen.
and indie hunters is always looking to play more cool VNs, so dont be surprised if we check out sugawara chronicle sometime. until then, godspeed with OLWBTS and sugawara's developments!
Promising. The game truly is promising on all aspects. I do thank you for this (little) journey into "Out Lost World Beneath The Skies". It was a real pleasure!
