(Please read if you plan to download or play soon: I've decided I am going to change all of the art throughout the demo after all and for every future update to the game. Because the new art allows me to give every character facial expressions, I believe that it massively improves the game and therefore just wanted to warn you that you're probably better off waiting to download the demo until I've uploaded the updated version with the new art! I don't know exactly how long it'll take me, I've already done almost all of the student route, hopefully it should be under a week.)
Hey everyone, welcome to my page for my free otome visual novel, Solipsism Reigns.
This project was almost abandoned because I just didn't have the time or inspiration to work on it... however, thanks to an appropriately themed Tyranobuilder Jam, the project is alive once again!
In the game, you play as the heroine (she's nameable) and must travel through many different worlds with your yandere spirit companion Kuro, in order to seek the truth of your situation.
Kuro is fully voiced in English by Timothy Smith. My aim is to have every character voiced fully in the final release. You can romance Kuro, but beware, he has yandere and yangire tendencies. He's perfectly capable of being kind and loving, he's protective but also lets you fight your own battles; however, his jealousy can be a serious problem, once that switch is flipped he becomes murderously possessive.
There are many bad endings, but they don't mean game over; in fact, the more endings you view, the more of the truth you will uncover! While this demo contains no 18 rated material or overly sexual content; it does include graphic descriptions of violence and some scenes of non consensual kissing, so please don't play this if that sort of thing upsets you.
There are multiple choices in each of the routes but the game is designed to be fairly easy to play, without the need for a complicated walk through. In this demo there is a hidden scene which you will only unlock after meeting certain conditions, if you can't find it, feel free to ask me for a hint!
The final version is a long way off because this is a solo project that I'm working on in my free time (I'm a full time carer.) It's made almost entirely of free to use assets licensed under various creative commons attribution and non commercial. However, I plan to sink my own money into it in the future in order to fund voice acting and the hiring of artists to draw CGs etc. I'm determined to finish it this time, it'll be slow but steady!
Thank you to all the artists out there who let people like me use their assets for free projects, this game wouldn't be possible without you all! <3
In the future after the final regular version of this is released, I plan to make alternate versions, a non gender one and one where you play as a male hero, romancing a female Kuro, so it will eventually be a regular visual novel, instead of just an otome.
For those of you who played the old original demo many months ago, the most notable changes are:
- Kuro is now fully voiced (aside from in prologues)
- Full 'Mage' route has been added (longer than 'Student' route)
- Heroine now has facial expressions throughout the game (instead of static body art.)
- Opening movie added
- Hidden scene dependent on certain conditions added

I've tried my very best to keep a list and make sure I include credits for everyone who's assets I used... however, because of the sheer amount, I'm bound to have left someone out by accident :( if that's the case, please get in touch with me: email@example.com so that I can add you to the credits!
I'm aware that some of the choice buttons are kinda wonky/misaligned, I was going to go through and correct that but unfortunately I ran out of time as I wanted to get it submitted for the TyranoJam. I will fix it before the next release though :3
Here are direct links to download from MEGA and Google (because for some reason they never seem to work for me when I add them as external T_T and file size exceeds the 500mb limit so I have to upload it in parts directly to here.) I will be releasing a MAC version soon too, I just don't have the time atm to export and upload it.
