Yesterday I finished a cute visual novel about a female knight and her dragon buddies. It's supposed to be about a hour long (it took me 3 hours, but I normally play visual novels very slowly to take in all the details), and it can be downloaded for free here:
The world of Ishtera is populated by two races: dragonkind, who have lived there for eons, and the heavenkind, who have recently appeared.
Auralee, an aspiring knight from the farming town of Berri, stumbles upon something unexpected during one of her patrols. After a rather inelegant introduction, Kerr states he's really an Earth Dragon - one of the mystical beasts that inhabit their world, Ishtera. Whether he likes it or not, Auralee is now involved in his mission to regain his dragon form. Along with some help by a fellow dragonkind named Ilmari, their journey begins...
A simple VN about friendship, growth and understanding, we hope it's as warm and comforting as apple cider ^_^
Frankly, it's not even close to being the best vn I ever played. It's too short, the characters and plot aren't explored enough (the plot in particular is more hinted than actually developed), you get very few choices and only 3 almost identical endings (and they are very open-ended to boot).
It is, however, warm and comforting as they say. The characters are very likeable and the story is heartening. The game also looks fantastic, with extremely cute graphics and animations, and an appropriate soundtrack (I especially like the ending song). I would suggest at least giving it a try :)
EDIT: I'm going to add a few screenshots to let you see what the game looks like :)
