Recently, she's been having strange dreams about the moon that orbits this planet... But, it's probably nothing, right?

original art and music,
incredibly light sci-fi worldbuilding,
40+ CGs of varying quality,
3 entire colors,
and a story about loneliness and what we will do to avoid it.

this is pretty good! Much like someone elses I like the limited colors, and how enjoying the vn is, and it's theme. Is it fine to post a playthrough/readthrough of this? I think my only main problem, would be censoring, since, welp yt and the likes and the stuff, even if it's just partial nudity. Again I'm sorry to talk something like this. Still overall, I enjoyed it! Hope to play more of your games later on!

Hi, thank you so much! I’m happy you enjoyed it.

Posting playthroughs is fine with me! I figured the doll-nudity the novel features would be fine for something like YT, but I don’t have any deep knowledge on that. You’re free to censor those parts if you feel like it’s necessary.


was very happy in the ways which this made me nervous. high compliments

Short, sweet, and ultra-cute.  A simply stellar VN, heheheh~


thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed it<3

When I first saw this browsing the submitters for vncup, I got really excited and hoped I would like it. This vn was surprising for its subversion of a few usual story conventions. The limited colour usage was such a great choice for this space-story, I really liked the details found in the backgrounds of scenes, and the character design was cute. To not spoil something I thought was done really well (yet still comment on it), the ending featured what was hinted at throughout in multiple forms, but remained a shock when it actually hit. The pacing of the several days of her work made it easy to follow her rhythm and take in her complicated dreams and visions. The music was neat and charming to fit with the space colony slice of life themes. Their feelings of being trapped in their life were easy to relate to, and made me hope there was a bright ending full of clarity for them...

a bit of a late reply, but thank you so much! you hit a lot of nails right on the head for what i was hoping would get across in this very short story, so i'm glad i was able to accomplish that in one way or another. Especially in regards to the 'rhythm' of Saturn's worklife being a way to put more emphasis on her dreams. thanks for reading! 💙

so good you get it
