So what is Student Union anyways?
Student Union is a choice-driven, full-length visual novel that blends anime styling with western writing— downloadable for Windows, Mac, Linux, and (soon!) Android. Set in modern times, this story contains suspense, romance, and mystery. Your choices guide Lane Fox through major branching paths as shifting pressures form, strain, and shatter strong bonds. You’ll found a student government, recruit members, and struggle to maintain them in the face of unexpected challenges and danger.
Lane is in trouble and needs work, ASAP. At the kick-off of his final year of high school, he turns to asking the faculty for help. The assistant principal Mr. Underwood recommends a unique solution: form and lead a student organization dedicated to the support and maintenance of the institution. However, Lane must convince at least four other students to join the group before the end of the week.
Beneath this pretext he quickly learns the school administration is more sinister than it seems, that great danger lies within the school walls, and that the group he’s forming may be more necessary than he realized.
