Don't hesitate to share your thoughts on the demo. :D 






Silver:Line is fantasy visual novel created by our small development team at Codev Productions. Unlike most stories where you play as the main hero, here, you are part of the supporting cast in everyone else’s stories. Your choices will lead you through their lives, and your decisions will have a great impact on how their stories unfold.

Recruited as an imperial scholar serving the crown of Lucarene, you lead a peaceful life at the castle, responsible for researching, tracking, and recording everything there is to know about the royal city. Living a life you once thought you could only ever dream of, you wouldn’t change anything for the world. But as fate would have it, you’re thrown into a turmoil of events where you’re pinned as a scapegoat and forced to flee the country, running for your very life. You set off on a journey, featuring a colourful cast and new horizons.

Follow us on Twitter for daily development updates! @Codev__P

 The demo is available for Windows and MacOS [32bit and 64bit]

 Silver:Line is rich in story and the player's choice is vital. But here comes the twist, unlike the traditional story, your character isn't the star of the show, but instead, they support the cast and join them on their adventures. 

 The fantasy premise will draw you into a world of possibilities.

Such a great game I wasn't expecting the 3d-ness but it worked well!!

Anticipating Gilbert's route, liked him from the very beginning :3

 Excited to see where this game is going; but the settings related to Speed and Sound doesn't work. Have tried to reinstall the game, no dice...

Hey there, drag it across from the very end :) not clicking it.

Hi, do you  plan to implement voices for protagonists male and female ?

This is a great work thanks

I'm afraid not. TwT Most players will enjoy giving their own headcanon voices to their MC.

there is a Silver:line game  in kickstarter and take your time to make a game?

I liked what little I could play of it; but it kept freezing at every scene transition, and I'd often get stuck on menus where the buttons wouldn't do anything. I really wanted to play more, but it was getting near impossible to continue...

Hey there!  Oh no!  So sorry to hear about the freezes. Do you think you can provide us with more info?  What build were you on?  And what specs are your PC? 

I was on the build 1.8.7, as for my PC's specs, I'm afraid I don't know. I'm not really a tech-savvy person. but I did try again and was able to get through it this time, it was very good!

Art, CG and the voice acting was A class. Usually I cringe when I hear voice actors on VN that are not Japanese, because they sound pretty awkward and unprofessional (cant blame them), but here it sounds very fitting. Granted it's no Japanese professionally train VA, but it's pretty goddamn well made for a game that popped outta nowhere.

The moving animation was just purely amazingly. I noticed the animation tried to match with the voice of the actors initially as well. Not just that the game also have a range of expression for the main characters as well and each was placed appropriately depend on the scenario.  

The CG and transition between character dialogues are smooth. The CG itself is so very well made and I noticed one particular transition in the beginning when it turned from day to night. That was very fluid and I almost felt like I was watching an anime for a second.

Gender definitely plays a big role in how the characters react to you and it's not just a generic switching of pronouns so big kudo to that.  The choices you make also create different situation. I can definitely feel a change in my MC when I pick certain choices that trigger her emotions like anger or creating conflicts so they aren't kidding when they say your choices make your story.

Overall this is definitely the best VN I've played. Not sure plot wise but the amount of effort that was made into the game CG, voice actors and animation is definitely top class.

I do have a complaint regarding the key setting. I wish I can hide the textbox to look at the CG sometime and since this dont look like it was made with RenPy some of the normal key button is not the same. Such as the save function, quick save, load and quick load arent as accessible because there are no hotkey or when you press esc it doesnt exactly pop out the menu UI for you. This is especially inconvenient because you cant scroll with your mouse wheel and remake your choices (because once again this is not your normal 2D VN they have animations and VA).  So once you make them it's permanent unless you load your save. Keep in mind there's also no auto save so you have to remember to save whenever you think you played long enough. So far that's my only complaint. The game mechanic itself, but definitely would pay 40 dollars or more for this VN if I get to play the full game and it has interesting plot. 

Thank you for writing a such a long message to us! This put such a big smile on us and we can't wait to show you even more stuff we have in store for you.

This game is so cool the characters there like amazing and the desine ate so cute i like lucas and the ch charCter that we name

this novel is pretty much a  masterpiece!, expressible characters, beautiful visual, gorgous characters and hooking story make me hungry for even more, I can't wait to play the full game keep up the good work, this is probably one of the best novel I have played so far.

I honestly appreciate that choosing your gender actually creates dialouge differences and isn't there just to be a cosmetic. Very cool. I'm definitly going to replay routes see these changes.

The game looks fun and the art is quite nice, so I'm honestly pretty eager to play this in its entirety. 

On another note, does the game lag in places sometimes for anyone else?

Gotta say I love the fact that the characters aren't static images. With most VN's you're lucky if they move their mouth or blink, and I utterly adore the fact that the characters move as much as they do, very cool.  Great art, like the story so far, looking forward to seeing more.

The art is really beautiful and the story is intriguing, but there were some "anime" tropes that made me really uncomfortable, for example like every merchant in town assumes you're a couple, if you decide to help a character with opposite gender and we are suddenly brothers and not a couple when we are both male?The bath scene was a big nope for me xD like our F!MC screeches pervert, when we are walked in on them? Or our M!MC suddeny activates creepy mode or how you can't calmly explain it was an accident. Other than that i would definitely enjoy learning more about these characters. Best of luck and inspiration to you! <3

i felt this as well! i love tropes but these ones kind of killed it for me :/ excited for the game though!

I adore this! Having the mc be a supporting character is actually really fun, makes them more relatable than some other kinds of mcs. The graphics are super cool, I've never seen a vn with anything like them, and I love all the characters (Lucas is the best boi). 

Loved this demo!! Excited to see where this dev team takes this game!! So much potential, and super excited to see the final product!!

I didn't  finish the demo yet, but I  have to say so far it looks amazing! I usually start playing novels to try them out and drop them soon after because I don't like the "rythm" but this story and writing style kept me totally hoocked! 

Thank you for the high praises c: it really encourages us to keep working hard on it

A-ma-zing. Honestly hooked on the story and I'm never really too much of a fan of visual novel type games, but I was blown away by both graphics and said story. Can't wait for more - I need that Lucas ending stat!! :)

Super talented team you got, amazing work.
