Here we are, Hyuga fans! Three years after the release of Book 4, I’m here with the demo of Book 5. A heck of a lot has happened in the world since then, and a whole lot has changed, but I hope your enjoyment of the Samurai of Hyuga series remains!
We catch up with our favorite ronin after a…hellish experience, to put it mildly. With a broken mind, body, and heart (for some, at least!), will you be able to survive against an old friend and new enemy? Are you going to be a half-decent bodyguard (for the first time in the series) or will you go batshit crazy, first?
You’ll have to read to find out! Before you do, though, I want to make a couple things clear. This is a sequel, and the recap section at the start of the game is made so that even the person who hasn’t touched the series in three years will gain a very good understanding of what’s going on. As in, there’s a TON of spoilers for the previous books.
I know this is something that should go without saying, but I also know there are choicegame
addictsaficionados who will read anything and everything on this forum, and I just want to give them a heads up.
I also want to give a content warning for what’s ahead. To be honest, there’s not as much controversy to be had in Book 5 vs Book 4. A lot of the more contentious elements are actually front-loaded (given the situation and mental state MC is in), so you’ll experience much of it in the demo.
Content Warning: This story contains mature themes, along with scenes of an explicit nature. This includes references to drugs, alcohol, bodily fluids, sexual violence, abuse, and rape. Reader discretion is advised.
Last and certainly coolest of all: we’ve got (optional) character protraits for MC! This is a feature I’ve been wanting to implement for some time, and thanks to my patrons over on Patreon, it’s a reality! I hope they make your stat screens look even prettier. Now, without further ado!
(By the way, the official release date is September 1st!)
