About

A giant dome called the Vault of Heaven covers the earth, separating it from the vast ocean of the heavens. In this world, sea nymphs care for the stars in the sky, dedicating their lives to it. However, magic is fading, the stars are dying, and no one knows why. No one even speaks of it, carrying on like they have for tens of thousands of years, as if nothing has changed. In these circumstances, three sea nymphs and the living embodiment of a star struggle to find meaning in their lives and their fading world.

The Waters Above: Prelude reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Water above us: Prelude-Kinetic (without elections) Yuri-novella (Lesbianism, as it is now fashionable), in which there are 4, very short stories, essentially introducing us to the characters, the underwater kingdom, rather than revealing the story. If before reading the novel, pass the demo, another of their works-Heart of the Woods Demo, will be available extra-mode, with a chibi-character from the demo, a little complementary to the story. Plot. The Underwater world, where the nymphs live in the inhabited ocean, and above it, is the cosmic ocean, with the stars supporting life, this world. But the stars are not eternal either. However, all this, we will probably learn in the sequel, in the novel, there are 4 brief stories, literally for 15-20 minutes of reading, in which we learn the main actors, and a brief history of the world. Well, plus, quite a bit hint on the "pink" relationship. While The plot is not very strong. Graphics and sounds. The Artists have to pay tribute, the picture came to fame. The Characters are painted nicely, in a ALA anime style. Zadnikov is not enough, though they are also qualitative. The Most impressive is the minimalist "star" Hall. The Music is pleasant and well suited to the atmosphere of the novel. As a result. In General, it turned out a nice novella, on the "pink" theme, under the water. The Plot in the prologue, the special elaboration does not shine, because it is more than the story. However, it is quite possible to read. 6 stars out of 10 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.

The Waters Above: Prelude Visual Novel Fan. Even if this is just a Prehistory here, it has quite good Entertainment value. You should definitely get a taste of it here. Since it is very short, I do not say what it is about, because you spoil the Value of looking at it. In any Case, there are a few Conversations, but also no Choices. It's supposed to be like a Demo, which is what you'll expect. I find the Settings between "graphic novel" or "adventure novel" particularly nice. So something for everyone, as you can at least also choose Font, Font size and 2 Colors for Texts. You don't know what else, of course, but you don't look into the Mouth of a gifted Gaul. Pro: + free Demo + very lovely Characters + good Graphics + Music is varied (even if ... "xyz") Contra:-unfortunately as with many Visual Novels, the "auto Function" is too slow-(... xyz) they partly annoyed-the Pictures in the Gallery are not adjusted Conclusion: I found this VN very reassuring, in any Case you can stay here as An Anime fan or as a VN Fan for a few Minutes. It is not a finished UN, but it is due to be launched by the very End of the year at the latest. There will be no 18 Or more versions, which I think is quite good at all =). Even if there is not much to talk about, as it is relatively short, I still give my Thumbs up, because I am curious to see how this UN DEVELOPS. Finally, I quote a Response from one of the Developers, who has already answered a few Questions in the Discussions. Originally posted by Josh (Raithfyre): We're hoping to release the full game within the next months few, almost definitely by the end of the year. It will be kinetic, yes. No 18 +, although there might be partial, non-sexual nudity More reviews of me Subscribe here and at pleasure also like to join my Group.
