A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

✧✧✧✧✧

In this barren world of endless deserts, almost all live their lives upon large fractions of land floating above the surface.

Here there are two types of people: Normals and Abnormals.

Buffalo Seer is an eccentric Abnormal who wants nothing more than to use the magic ability within them; future seeing. However, even within their society where everyone has a special power, future seeing is considered dangerous and advised against.

Unable to be swayed, Seer finally gains permission to look into their own future, only to receive an unbelievable revelation. Not only have they left Abnormal society, they're married to someone they've never met before.

With visions of happiness in their mind, Seer leaves everything behind and ventures to the part of the land fraction where those without magic live; Normal society.

Seer is going to convince this stranger that they are meant to be together no matter what it takes, even if it means tagging along on an adventure.

In only a few days Seer will learn just how far away that pleasant future is.


Features:

-30,000 word script

-3 future spouse options (one male, one female, one agender)

-Choose pronouns (he, she, or they) and a 'Normal' name for Buffalo Seer

-Lite animation effects

-A fun alternate outfit mode (in the full version this feature will be an optional addition to the game rather than included by default)



This demo was updated on 11/29/2016 to include the alt outfit mode and some sound effects. If you had a previous version of the demo old save files will likely not work.

To use the alternate outfit mode select the 'Extras' button from the main menu, on the new screen that appears click the 'Outfit Select' button, there you can toggle which of the three future spouse options where which outfit. You can change what they wear at any point along the story.

Using the alternate outfit mode will not change CG images or any part of the script. It is a neat extra for the player, rather than something that's actually happening in-universe.

looooved it, do you have an estimated eta for the release? :) <3

That's great. We're glad you enjoyed it ^^. We're aiming to release the game in January 2017!

I've played Piper's intro, and I'm in the process of playing January's, and I must say I already adore this game! I really love January, but Kea is lovely too. Piper isn't that much of my type, but she's still very cool! I really can't wait for the full release! Do you have a release date in mind?

I'm very curious about one thing, and I hope you don't mind me asking. If you don't want to, that's okay. While playing Piper's intro, January and Seer were spending most of their time together because of the circumstances, and even if the game tells you that visions are never wrong, I feel like it wouldn't be that challenging of a game if you meet your future spouse at the beginning and that's it. Could it be possible that you may actually end up with someone else than the person from Seer's vision. In Piper's intro it felt like both Piper and January were possible candidates!

Thanks very much :D! We hope to release it around January 2017.

As for your other question, A Foretold Affair is just about doing things for fun rather than having any kind of challenge. We wanted to make a game where people could still choose the romantic interest for the MC, but the choices didn't revolve around making sure you got the person you wanted/getting a good ending with the person. So, in AFA who you pick at the start is who you'll end up. The rest of the game is about freely choosing whatever feels right and seeing what comes of it.

We understands that style of VN isn't for everyone though.

Oh, it's more surprising than not to my tastes, I'd say. Sure, it'll be easier that way, but it's a very unique approach, and it's interesting! I've played lots of VN, but I think this is my first time with that kind of thing!

I'm very curious about how the story will evolve - I'll be waiting for the full release. Thank you for your answers!

I'm glad you feel that way! And thanks again :].

I loved the demo! January is my favorite so far, and I love the Seer's personality and design. The game is really beautifully drawn and I can't wait for the full game to come out! Definitely plan on supporting the game on kickstarter too. :)

Wow, thank you so much ^^. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the art and the characters!

The demo looked really good! Looking forward for the full game^^

Thank you very much :D.

You're using Ren'Py, right? Could you please upload a Linux build? Thanks! :)

(+1)

Yep, we're using Ren'Py. For some reason though we can't make a Linux build, it always gives an error. I've never had this problem with Ren'Py before, but we're definitely still trying to get past it. We're really sorry for the inconvenience.

i am loving this!! piper and january are my favorites right now and i can't wait to play their full routes!! i love the art style and how funny seer is!!

Haha, thank you :3. We really wanted to make the MC entertaining, so we're glad you enjoyed Seer.

I just finished the demo and I have to say I really love the characters! Buffalo Seer especially is a great MC, lots of fun to play as. Can't wait for the main game, I'm super looking forward to romancing Piper and Kea! (Nothing against January he's just not my type, haha.)

(+1)

Thank you very much :D. It's always so great to hear someone enjoyed it. We'll do our best to get the full game out relatively soon!

Very beautiful.Takes it time with the "what's your name?" question :)

Even trying to get married before that.


Thank you very much ^^!
