Fantasy | Royal Court | Stats Raising

Royal Alchemist is a stats raising Otome | BL RPG in a high-fantasy royal court setting.

Keep the main characters alive through the story while improving their skills and craft various items, fulfilling quests and advancing the country’s development.

The King was murdered.

The assassins have not been found. And the threat of rebellion hangs over the land.

With the succession thrown open and none of the three Royal Princes ready to take the throne, the King’s brother has assumed the Regency.

Hoping to protect the nation and its people and help the rightful heir to the throne, the Regent has sought the help from the High Council, a neutral and influential faction of powerful magicians. The delegate it has sent, however, isn’t someone the Eskian aristocracy prefers, for more reasons than it seems.

You are the scion of the ancient Rosenkreuz family, the High Council’s delegate and newly appointed Tutor to the Royal Princes. Can you navigate the maze of Eskian politics and guide the princes on the path of power? Or will you succumb to the murky intrigues of the court, and the ever-present danger of assassins?

♦ Male or female protagonist
♦ 3 dateable characters
♦ 2 stats raising systems 
♦ Time management & quest system
♦ 8 Endings
♦ ...and many deaths

I like the game so far, Haven't completed it yet, but whenever I would see an achievement unlock thing I could never find what achievement I unlocked. When looking at the achievements it only shows my death achievements...am I missing something or am I just confusing myself. I don't know but regardless I love the game so far.

I wasn't going to buy the game at first but playing the demo really got hooked so I did. Definitely worth it.

Hello and thank you so much! Glad you're enjoying the game :D 

Regarding the achievements page, there should be arrows on the right/left to switch the achievement page! We hope that clarifies it.

Thank you <3


How much is this game in MYR? Just wondering. I want to play it but I'm worry about how much it'll cost

Im not sure if online converters are accurate, but the one i used says itd be roughly 92.85MYR


Is there a walkthrough or is one not needed to get a good ending with love interests?

there are walkthroughs, but you can save frequently, and there should be a menu that has your path progress. I forget which tab has it, but you'll know if you made the right choice depending on if the progress bar next to the route your going for has gone up or down. (Imo the routes arent difficult to get right fundamentally. It's just making sure you have enough points in the right stats when need be.)

Thank you but would you by chance know any links to the walkthroughs ? I have looked and been unable to find any.

(sorry i just saw this)
i dont know of any walkthroughs that cover every ending aside from the official one. but if I find any, ill let you know


Thank You very much !


If you haven't played this yet wtf are you doing with your life?

i played this for the first time in December

i come back to it religiously

If i stay away from it for too long, the sound effects are better than therapy

this is what i get when i play a phenomenal VN not long after coming out to my family i suppose


Out of curiousity, are some of the BG art purchased from asset stores? That office/room in the schedule screenshot is the exact same BG I once saw in some Japanese game, and I imagine that they must have bought it from the same store.

Some of the BG art assets are from a royalty free store, yes.

(1 edit)

Oh, do you mind if I ask what's the store? I've been looking to get/buy BG assets, but I've not been finding very many of them... 



Any plans for android and consoles?



While our team is looking into mobile ports at the moment, we don't have an exact schedule for that yet and will post a public announcement once we do. Thank you for your interest!

this game is really incredible. BUT YOU MUST PERSEVERE!!! I died so much that it was funny XD So bad that I can't find the music on spotify or something like that. Especially the one with the piano. So beautiful

I only did Aurelius route so far but it was gorgeous.

Can't wait Alchemist order

Thank you so much <3 Glad you enjoyed it!


I just wanted to add my 2 cents about how amazing this game was! As someone who often looks for more inclusivity in otome/rpg games, I think the way you were able to choose the MC's pronouns was amazing. The game was spectacular and phenomenal as expected, and I can't wait for the release of the Royal Order. Keep up the great work, I'll be sure to support Nifty Visuals in the future!


I love it, and I really did not see the betrayal happening, like I'm so close to the ending but plot twist after plot twist keeps on happening


The cute little drawings when you do alchemy and missions are just too adorable. This game has so much depth and so many possible endings, it's incredible. A tad more complicated than my preference (even on easy mode), but it's still been a lot of fun. 

I never did figure out how to continue playing (with or without the bonus stats) once it takes you to the title screen after a death, so I always just ended up loading the latest safe file that'd let me live ^^

So far I've gotten 4 endings and I'm trying to collect all of the CG's. Might end up having to cheat and get the walkthrough, but we'll see.

PS: I'm in love with Aurelius.

I haven't finished a route yet, but so far I am enjoying the story and its characters! I have a question though, Will there ever be routes for other characters like Nerifiel for example?

(1 edit)

yknow... there's one thing about this game ive noticed recently, now that im giving Aurelius' route another go.

The game can't seem to decide if his fief is spelt "Zelfos" or "Zelflos"

Not an issue, i just thought it was funny

It's saying a lot that tiny details like this are the only flaws i can find, after replaying this *masterpiece* so many times


I passed the Royal Alchemist a long time ago, but I have a question. 

Alexis is the child of the head of the Rosenkreuz clan? So Alexis' father is the most important? 

I am concerned about these issues.

(1 edit)

Hi! Alexis's father is the patriarch of the clan. 

It's less that he's the most important, he's simply accepted by the clan as their leader, and can represent them at any important events and will be the one they can come to in times of troubles. We hope that answers your question! :)

Purchasing here is supposed to also give access to a steam key, correct? I can't recall how to receive it, how do i find it?

On the download page of this game (you can access it on the top of the game page or in your purchased games library), there should be a red button below all download files that states "Redeem your steam key" or a display area for the Steam key if it's already redeemed. We hope that helps!

Hello, do you perhaps have the exact titles of the songs used/the authors written somewhere? I'm looking for a specific song but going through the entire discographies of all these artists to search for one is making me bang my head against the wall, lol. Thanks.

Hi! Which track are you referring to? If you can tell us the scene, we might be able to look it up quicker than listing out the whole list XD

Ahh thank you! Most recently I recall playing...

spoiler for Serin's route

... when the MC and Serin are kissing in the MC's room just before his coronation. It starts the moment I click "spur him on" I think, Serin stays in the room and they are about to make some love and there's a CG of them kissing on the bed. The track starts with a piano, after some time I think that's cello that kicks in? It's a very mysterious, magical and whimsical tune. I love it, it gives me so many feelings.


That should be "Under the Rain" by frequentlyaskedmusic! We hope we got the right track :D


That's the one, thank you! < 3

Hello. I'm wondering if the dialogue and story ( romance and everything ) are different based on the gender you choose to play as?

Hello! No, the romance and story will be the same regardless of the gender you choose to play as :)

Just a question - is there any mature content in this game?

No, this game is suitable for all ages :)

Alright, thank you! :)


I just finished it after going in blind. I had my first ending and a lot of save slots occupied. XD I got a lot to say, so here goes:

What I love/like:

- the background sound that are sometimes subtle, sometimes apparent: crowd chatter, environment sounds and all

- the plot. I love the rollercoaster ride. 

- the loveable characters: main and side!

- the number of save slots I can peruse. (I badly need this as someone who's overly anxious about every decision)

- Nerifiel

- the world-building elements!

- headstrong and a likeable MC (regardless of the choices and approach, I find the MC to have quite a personality that is not to be undermined)

- dynamic emotions and expressions shown in characters, even in the MC!

What I am less pleased about are just a few:

1. the sprite changing from one position to another: one moment the charac is on the leftmost part, the next line, they're on the other end. It's distracting and a bit annoying. Only got used to it later, but it was something I really don't appreciate in the game

2. In the save slot sections, I wish you can sidescroll the page numbers beyond 10. Though there is an arrow button, I hardly knew it was to flip to another page if I didn't happen to randomly click about. Was this intended or a bug on my part?

3. I can't romance Neri (sulks in the corner). Just kidding! XD I appreciate platonic relationships in the game, and I gotta say, Neri and MC's was really pleasant!

So yeah, just two things I didn't like. XD

I understand that the difficulty of going through the whole game lies on its gameplay of stat-building rather than it just being plain difficult. Also, I know it's one factor for replayability, so I respect it. 

Still don't understand about the Daily Death Count as I never had those? Was it because I kept loading a previous saves after dying once, twice, thrice and so forth? Were they never counted if I do that? :O
Anyway, I ought to find out in my next playthroughs. Another inquiry/ies: How many endings does one LI have? I'm assuming among the 8 endings, some of them could be an ending to encounter in common route or in times when MC chooses no one (is that even possible?)

To sum it up, I love the game! It took me half a day to finish. I decided to purchase it after playing the Royal Order's demo, to satiate my craving for the full completion of that game. I wasn't disappointed! Great job with the games! :D

I literally bought the game for the same reason! The Royal Order Demo was such a fun intro to the series :)

Just wanted to know before I spend money for the full game, but how many in-game weeks are there in the full game?


Hello! The full game contains 60 in-game weeks.

J’ai acheté le jeu sur steam et j’ai adoré y jouer. Bien qu’il soit uniquement en anglais j’ai pris plaisir à finir deux des huit fins.
Chaque personnage a sa propre personnalité et les interactions du personnage principal différent de l’un à l’autre. 
On voit que les développeurs se sont beaucoup investis pour ce jeu. Je vais continuer à jouer pour découvrir les différentes fins. 

J’ai hâte de pouvoir suivre vos prochains projets. 

Is this game still getting updates? Like I checked and the steam version's latest update was a year ago. Is it on hold for steam or is it generally paused. Also I was reading on a site that said cheats were going to be added to the game or something akin to that. Could I get some information on this? Thanks.


Hello! The game is, for now, completed. We're currently working on an indirect sequel.

Depending on how things go, we might revisit some features at a later time and if major bugs are encountered, we will fix them, but the story and everything in general is completed.

So got the game on steam but I'll also post a review here...

Completely and utterly amazing!!

I have a good 50 hours invested already and it is truly a delight to play.

I wasn't sure at the beginning because i don't play stats games but oh boy am I happy? YES! It isn't difficult to raise stats and at the end i find myself just doing missions.

Aurelius route is my OTP followed by Nazir and cutie Serin, haven't seen all the endings yet.

Did I bawled my eyes out with Nazir's route at 4am? Yes, yes I did aha...

The guide is super useful and when I bought it I took the time to read the character profiles and it is so fun and cute.

Kudos for this master piece, but a question since I haven't finished and I love spoilers


Does Alexis in any of the endings choose to remove the petals? 

The guide is spoiler free so I dunno.

Thanks Ó╭╮Ò


Thank you so much for the review! We're super happy you're enjoying the game <3

As for your question...


Alexis won't ever choose to remove the petals in any of the endings, since the only way to do that requires too much sacrifice. 
In Serin's bad ending, they will accidentally remove them temporarily, but will forever lose their magical abilities afterward.

Of course, if we ever explore this world a bit more with Alexis, we're sure they'll find something that can be done~ But for now, Alexis will bravely choose to live with them :D

I don't have the heart to play Serin's bad ending yet, I am too happy with the fluff and lovey dovey stuff but maybe when I dare to play it I'll definitely check it out!! ಥ‿ಥ

Thanks for the reply!

Um I pre-ordered this game then played for a while before uninstalling it for other stuff, but now when I wanted to download it again to play, it doesn't let me? Normally itch let's you know how long you've bought this game for, but now I can't see the download link anymore and it said I have to pay 20$ again to buy the game? 

Is it possible to recover my purchase pls? I can't even see this game in the "My purchase" on itch anymore.

Edit: I still have it on my steam account...I just can't find it on my Itch account

Hello! Do you perhaps remember where you pre-ordered the game? We cannot find your username in our purchase history on itch. And if you pre-ordered the game on our Xsolla page, it's the Steam version only.

You can also send us an email to royal.alchemist.bugs[at]gmail.com with the email address of your account and we can attempt to find you with that. Thanks!

I enjoyed this game quite a bit. I played through on Aurelius' and reached the happy romance ending, and it was fulfilling. The personalities of the side characters were endearing, especially getting to know Cerdiwen's backstory! I will definitely play through again in the future and probably go after Serin next time. 5/5!

Thank you so much for playing! :D We're happy you enjoyed the game. And good luck on getting on Serin's route <3

This is such a fun game, well worth the price! Thank you very much for producing this lovely piece of art; kudos all around!

I have currently unlocked all the romance endings and Serin's bad ending. I'm finding the friendship endings surprisingly hard to achieve than the romances! This is likely because I'm using the romance save files, starting roughly halfway through each plot, and making choices in an attempt to get friendship-only routes. For reals, if you get only 50% of the route bar but accidentally get another cutscene, it rounds up and the romance WILL persist! Not that I have any problems reliving those wonderful scenes ^_^ Need a fan for some of the Aurelius content, phew! After this, the plan is to get the last ending aka all non-romance! I do wonder what that will  be like + if that is what is needed to unlock the final MC portrait. My notes on Serin's bad ending and villains... SPOILERS below --

How COULD you!? Not our beautiful bae! TT No, but really, for an obligatory sacrifice story route, this was truly well done. The art for distraught Alexi(s) is truly heart-wrenching. As for villains--Lady Ishbell's reasons were credible and understandable, if extremely sad. I adore the split arcs for Nazir as a result of her betrayal--gotta say, his Rosenkreuz awakening was by far my favorite twist! Him and Berringer are too adorable with their antics. In general, love how Berringer works into all the endings. Harris' and Raphael's endings are tragic, and their motives make a little less sense to me? On Aurelius' route, I enjoy getting to see how close these two are, and Raphael's devotion to Harris *does* make sense... but enough to die for him? O.o I would have loved to have seen Harris expand further upon his grief over Raphael's death/why that leads to his really rash decisions towards the end, more than the MC puzzling it out a bit at the end once he is captured.

Quick tiny note for devs--on Nazir's romance route, I noticed that his mini portrait (the one featured in the classes menu) pops up randomly on a few of the later scenes, which seems like an error since that does not occur on other routes. I believe it happens in the "working together at the tavern" scene and one or two others.

Thank you so much for playing and the detailed review!

Admittedly, it can be quite hard sometimes to get on the non-romance endings if you accidentally catch the key scenes, yes :'D We're happy you're having fun replaying though! And glad you're enjoying the characters too.

As for Nazir's mini portrait issue, thank you for reporting! We'll keep an eye out for them for a future fix.

Currently doing Nazir route (for like 2 days now but i only play during my free time) and i just wanted to say i love their interactions. 


I love how the MC starts to slowly joke around like Nazir. Their back and forths just makes me laugh so much.I swear while i was playing his route i was rolling around so much in bed squealing LOL. I paused my gameplay when Nazir planned to leave to learn more about the Rosenkurez and I decided to continue another time (when i have free time) ....I screamed into my pillow when i didnt get to tell Nazir how i felt. Ugh i love this so much! The art is amazing too! Ngl I was also so hurt when i found out Ishbell was a traitor (almost cried)...I had a feeling but like I didnt think she really was...but anyways. What a emotional ride so far, really enjoying it.

I regret not buying it earlier...silly me.

Also im curious: Is there a path where Nazir doesnt Awaken ?

currently praying theres a shirtless nazir scene

Continuation: So i lied and kept on playing...Raphael was just revealed to be a traitor and I swear to you I called it. Told myself "I hope Raphael isn't evil, especially Sala"...Honestly Im starting to realize you really just cant trust nobody in this story. never know whos aiming at you when your not looking.

Now my head is hurting...I can't tell who's mind controlled and whos actually doing this without being mind controlled...Im just like..what is going on.

The King is truly Handsome.

Finished the route. Amazing story ,art,etc...my relief went away at the "Ending 2". I still have a long way ahead but Im definitely in love with this vn and im definitely buying your next one!

Thank you so much for the kind words! So happy you're enjoying the game  and thanks for the support :D

(No matter which path you take, what happens to Nazir on his route will still happen. There is no way around it v_v )

Before meeting the king I honestly thought it happened because he kissed the MC wound in the bar.

(1 edit)

how many cgs in total and playtime?

(1 edit)

The game has roughly 30 CGs (not counting variations) and depending on your reading speed, 8 - 12 hours per route with 3 routes in total :D

(2 edits) (+2)

I bought the Royal Alchemist - Anniversary SALE yesterday and played for 3 hours straight! The price is cheaper in steam but I, unfortunately, bought it here already before I checked steam. LMAO

Very nice game! The backgrounds are gorgeous and the CGs are stunning. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants to play an otome game. The gameplay is also good. It's difficult, to be honest, so I started checking the guide(from the bundle) and switched to Story Mode. hahaha

Good job on your release! I love your game! More games to come, please!


so i've pre-ordered the game in 2019 and got it in 2020, but got to it only recently, because of life. i have to say it was the best spent money in my life! i have only completed one ending (i've spent on it 25h in total! with a guide!!! oh, i love this game), but i can't wait to complete other endings. i honestly love mechanics, the nerd inside me sees them and squeals. i also adore writing, i found myself liking all the characters and finding them fairly realistic. the plot twists were foreshadowed in the best way: when plot twist happens i think "oooh, it makes perfect sense, why haven't i thought about it" (tho i predicted some of the lesser plot twists). also, this game has so many of them that i even wrote to my friends "me, the fool, thinking that it was the last plot twist in royal alchemist". the art and music were also great. the art was really pleasing to the eye and i really enjoyed it. i mean, the games i decide to play usually have to be visually pleasing, so the fact i first played the demo, then paid for the pre-order and played the full game, AND that i have the wallpaper from this game on my laptop, means something. going back to the music: i usually play without it, listening to the songs i like, but it was very enjoyable and suitable to mood, so i played fully listening to it, great job. all in all, this is probably one of my favourite visual novels of all time. thank you for reading my word vomit.


Hello! Thank you so much for preordering the game and leaving us your thoughts :D 

We are glad you got to it and enjoyed it and the plot twist got you! Good luck on the other routes and endings too, once you get to them :D


Really, you guys nailed everything I want from an otome game! The music (which I very much love. It's relaxing and tense when the situations called. Not many VN games are good at that!), the CGs and background arts (some of the gorgeous ones have only 15 sec appearance and i was gaping on the resources the team pour into the arts), and the MC! I LOVE the way they had slight changes in each route, but at the core they're gentle yet firm to not back-out from the responsibilities and take fate into their own hands. They know their position and stand firmly on it. The stat raising was challenging, but I believe it's one of the charms of this game. Every character has their own charmed and I enjoy every interaction we get with them. Neri is such a big bro ready to stand by the mc and I'd hope in the next game there will be a character like him again(if not the LIXD )

My fav was Serin, as I went on his route firstXD His demeanor and his first appearance just swoop my mc away. He's such a cinnamon roll who suffers from my mc endless teasingXD His route is that soft blazing sunlight you'd enjoy while cuddling on your bed.


Hello, Developers. I'm here to give you the review as I have promised like months and months ago. I have typed all this after I finished playing, but for some reason procrastinated to post this ._. I don't want to keep procrastinating, so here it is! This is what I wrote right after I got all three romance endings, enjoy? XD


I’m back to review, Devs! I did say I will review after I finished all endings, but I don’t want to overplay in one sitting, so I’m back after I finished all three romance endings.

I really adore stat-rising games. It is challenging and frustrating, but I really enjoy it. My strategy basically is just to make my own walkthrough. I’ve never used so many save slots in my VN-playing career lol But don’t worry, I will not share it with anyone even if they beg themselves to their knees! This is my hard work for almost 27 hours, so buy or make one yourself! x.x





I played Aurelius’ Route first. Dang, it is so hard. I’m constantly being reminded of my poor etiquette hehe My favorite scene of his is when Alexis and Aurelius are playing chess. I’m amazed by the dialogues. It sounds… really inspiring. When Harris turns out to be a traitor, I feel my heart breaks with his. It must hurt cuz he is closer to Harris than his own parents. But when he kisses Alexis in front of his father, his uncle, his brother, and his mother figure asdfghjkl I’m not a fan of PDA, Aurelius, Your Highness!

If Aurelius’ route feels intense (maybe because I died countless times in his route lmao), Nazir feels like... a breath of fresh air. In his route, I have my self-made guide for one route already, so it’s easier. So I found myself indulging the story more. I’m smiling all the time, because he is just a ball of sunshine! To my surprise, his route is the purest of all lol My favorite scene is when he comes into Alexis’ chamber whenever he pleases. And when he turns into a Rosenkreuz, I truly feel the impact of what has been happening in his life. If I were him tho, I would resent my Rosenkreuz's blood. I have so much potential but this blood restrained me. Thank God he has Alexis at least.

If Nazir is a breath of fresh air (he is air alright), the Crown Prince is a cinnamon roll. He is too cute and pure!! ….Or so I thought. He makes me squeal out of his cuteness, but in the end my face just turns redder and redder… I feel like I intrude on something… You know what I’m talking about, Devs XD I’m so embarrassed omg They should get a room!!! But it dawned on me that they did get a room. I should have been the one to excuse myself asdfghjkl (I have seen “wilder” scenes, but… because it’s pure at first, I guess it makes me even more flustered. I didn't expect it.) My favorite scene of him… ironically… is when he hurts his eye. The CG is gorgeous!! And when he is crowned a king!! In fact, I was truly happy when I saw the scene for the first time in Aurelius' route. After experiencing a lot of deaths, the scene feels really REALLY rewarding.

My favorite character is… Beringer!! AAAA cute boy!! Please tell me you will explore his story in the future! If yes, I’m ded. Dang it, he’s too cute…

And about the MC, she is so bold. The LIs are all princes. If it were me, I would think this is SO not proper. (A mere tutor and royals!!! What an impropriety!!) But it just shows how MC is so honest with her feelings and so straight-forward. I think she’s a wonderful MC. She is not empty and she is her own person. Good job. I rarely insert myself to MCs, empty or not, so here I found myself cheering for her and for love. I’m like an invisible stalker who followed them all the time. And I don't mind hehe

I had hoped the Alchemy Requests are different for each route though. And I was hoping the route is less structured. But I understand, coding a game is hard haha And this game is time linear anyway, right?

Thank you for making such a great VN. I will definitely replay to find another ending.

To be honest, I'm more inclined to the idea that Alexis and the princes become friends instead. That's really rare. I don't really know why, but I think... as much as I LOVE stat-rising games, the downside is my immersion often breaks. I'm not too bonded to the characters, and as you can see my favorite characters are Beringer instead, not even one of the princes. But I won't think that is a bad thing! I'm happy with my feelings! I still love stat-rising games even with all the downsides. And there are so many events and scenes I like in the game. I like this game. Once again, that's just what matters. So, don't really mind this :D

Okay, that's all ^^ I'm looking forward to future updates or projects! Bye!


I just wanted to say this review is so cute haha! No like button so I decided to comment :3


Thank... you? XD XD XD

Hi! As promised, coming at you with feedback!

I'm loving the game and the guide is being soo much useful, I got all the good endings and enjoyed them thoroughly.~ Yet to hunt for friendship ends and allll the deaths. 

I went for Serin first, because he's such a charming gentleman from the first moment~ He was sweet through and through, as expected, and fun to tease, although not much surprises. But week 55! That was cruel. :( 

I played Aurelius next. He made a bad first impression on me because of Week 2 :D But he was loyal to Serin and started to pick my interest. Getting to know him was a very positive surprise! I think the build-up of his romance route was my favorite. Loved week 39 ;) Also with the extra hints in his route... I see why you guys recommend to play him first, maybe I could have had a guess on the villain. Oh well. 

With Nazir, his plot twist genuinely blew my mind. Glad I played his route last because once that scene started, I recognized the signs! Two days later, I'm still thinking on it. Would have enjoyed an epilogue where they visit Alexis's father and get more answers on how his father makes him a special case! And, tbh, his confession seemed very sudden to me, for most of the time I felt like they were just becoming close friends (okay, except week 37, unless I messed up and missed more action), and I even questioned if Nazir likes Ishbell (at week 42). 

I'm having one problem/question: I cannot unlock the scene for Aurelius's second CG. I figured from the artbook that there should be a CG scene between week 2 and week 25, and I'm positive I've been following the guide correctly. Definitely passed the stat checks, but I didn't manage to get that scene on my second try either. :(
EDIT: nevermind, I realized the guide never said to craft an item for week 11, which I did... I think I got lots of exploring to do with how things can go right and wrong that week! 

(2 edits)

There's a lot of good things about this visual novel! I love the stat-raising aspects, the lore is unique, the art is beautiful, and the cast is full of colourful characters.

Unfortunately, I seem to have run into a glitch in the Mac version? When I tried to replay Aurelius' route to get all the CGs with the more masculine portrait, the truth serum didn't unlock after week 11. I tried to see if it was a glitch with the portrait by replaying up to that point with the more feminine portrait, but the item stayed locked. I then tried to see if playing Nazir's route instead would help, but the truth serum still stayed locked. I'm not exactly sure how to deal with this, and I'm pretty sure the truth serum is very important, so... help? Please?

EDIT: I reloaded some of my old saves for Aurelius' route and found that even with those files, the truth serum doesn't unlock?

EDIT 2: Sorry! It turns out that I might have just forgotten that the truth serum only unlocks in week 14, so there's no glitch here!

Hello! Thank you for playing :D And we're glad that the question got resolved. 

To clarify, yes, the Serum unlocks in Week 14 if your Intelligence stats are right!


This is one of those games that I can't believe I haven't seen people gush about all over the place because it really does everything it sets out to do extremely well. The visuals are clean and beautiful, the writing is wonderful (I've spotted a few minor typos here and there, but for the most part the script seems well-combed over and the actual writing itself is wonderful and regal without being overly mired in Monarchy Jargon), the characters are compelling, the romance slowburn is INCREDIBLY satisfying, the stat raising mechanics are perhaps the most fun I've ever encountered in a visual novel... This team just really knocked it out of the park! If I had to say something negative, I guess it'd be that a game of this caliber ought to have an original soundtrack rather than stock music. But really, I can't speak highly enough of it. I haven't even finished the game yet, but I'm like maybe 3/4ths of the way through an Aurelius route (assuming I don't die LMAO, I've been abusing save states on easy mode) and I've been 100% sucked in the entire time. Thank you for this wonderful game experience!

Awesome game! I've been playing for hours and hours and hours and still only finished Aurelius (I LOVE HIM SO MUCH) like there is so much gameplay, I love it! I can't wait to do Serin next~

Thank you! :D Glad you enjoy it.

Maybe it's too early to ask, but do you have any plans regarding the sequel? The game is absolutely wonderful, I simply cannot get enough of it.
