Not all the great stories have to be long and Starlight Shores is here to prove itself. The new visual novel from Delphinium Interactive is officially out on Itch! To clarify, you may have heard of this game before, it’s because we previously talked to the studio’s lead here. To say that I am excited for this game’s release is an understatement. The amount of love that you can find within the game’s art, music and writing are phenomenal. Furthermore, that’s all in the demo. Now we look at the full game which you can obtain for as little as $4.00. I took the time this weekend to marathon through Starlight Shores and a full review is pending. However, I can say this is one story that you do not want to miss. Grab it today, and let your friends know of this diamond of a game.
Starlight Shores is an island-themed romance game, and we officially launched just minutes ago on @itchio! ☄️

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?
