It's gay and it's Iliadic, two things I'm particularly in love with. (To be fair, the Iliad in itself is already homoerotic what with Achilles and Patroclus). I enjoyed playing it for a number of reasons.

1. It's interactive. Kinetic visual novels are great when all you want to do is read and not have to think about the many endings you could reach, but interactive VNs are still the best.

2. It's short but it doesn't really sacrifice the characterization of either characters, especially if you play through all the endings. In addition to that, the endings are all very in-character. (I've never liked, much less loved, bad endings before and disliked good endings, but hey here we are. The best endings, especially the two with Penthesilea, are still my favorites though.)

3. The characters aren't perfect. Holy shite if I don't have a thing for really flawed characters.

4. The Iliad holds a special place in my heart, it's gay, and IT'S FRIGGING SET IN SPACE THANK U VERY MUCH

I'm so glad I accidentally discovered this game (while I was supposed to be doing my papers oops).

I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

I had a lot of fun trying to write deeply flawed characters like Helena while still keeping them sympathizable, so I'm glad to see it came through. :)

AND YES THE ILIAD IS SO GAY, it made it fairly easy to turn it into a GxG scenario just by transposing the character's genders.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment and I hope you were able to finish your papers, despite the distraction~! :D

We absolutely loved playing this game! The art style was extremely gorgeous, and each storyline was worthwhile. If you're interested, part one of our ongoing Let's Play is here.

Hey! I've been really enjoying watching your play through, can't wait to see the next part! :D

does it have some kind of romance?

Hey! There's an option for Helena to end up with Penthesilea and there are a few short romance scenes between them, but the focus of the work is more-so on Helena moving on from her past failed romances. Hope that helps! :)

Got four of the six ends. It's really well made, you guys did a great job ^^
