In the month of spooky surprises, a pleasant one appears as Starlight Shores is releasing. That’s right, the wonderful project by the newly-established Delphinium Interactive is almost ready. Furthermore, it’s coming way sooner than you think. How does the day before Halloween sound? I had the pleasure of partaking in the demo earlier in the year. In this demo, I found myself in love with the characters, whether it’s Lia’s art or their personalities, and hungry for the romantic endeavors. In fact, I was so entranced, I contacted their team for an interview which you can read here. Even for how small this project is, it’s been a real joy to follow it’s development. The release will mark a big step for the young team and I’m so eager to spread word of their efforts post-release. Please consider playing the wonderful demo in the meantime.
Starlight Shores will be launching on October 30th, 2020 💕
Although this has been our release date for some time, we only recently felt confident in solidifying the date.

So what is Starlight Shores about?
After your childhood friend Theo wins a weekend getaway to the town of Seaside, you prepare to spend your birthday in paradise. It’s been months since you last saw Theo, and she’s incredibly excited to spend the weekend together.
She invites her roommate Lena to join the group, and Theo extends an invitation to your friend Alec. After parting ways to attend different colleges, it’s just the get-together that you need to reconnect.
Everything seems to be coming together perfectly… until Alec insists on driving by himself. You arrive at the cottage before him, certain that he’s ditched the group. A short while later, he calls to announce that he’s bringing along an uninvited guest.
Although Erika may be from the same small-town as most of the group, that’s about the only thing you share in common…
Will you enjoy your night with Theo and wish on a star?
