about

My name is Aster, you can also call me An. I run a tiny game development lab with many little experiments on making story-focused games known as An's Orbit.

I have loved interactive fiction and dating sims from a young age, so as soon as I picked up creative skills, it became my aspiration to craft a story of my own in those format.

My main inspiration came from old dating sims and soft aesthetic.


Notes


“How sweet. That rain. How something that lives only to fall can be nothing but sweet.” ― Ocean Vuong.

★ I actually don't read much romance despite writing romantic stories.
★ My current interests are games by Miwashiba and Your Turn to Die.
★ Within the next few years, I hope to have games with original music.
