Somnova Studios was founded shortly after the release of Katawa Shoujo, an Original English Language Visual Novel (OELVN) featuring girls with physical disabilities. On the game's forums, several members talked about psychological disorders and how it would be interesting in exploring that in a visual novel. From there, our team and first project, Missing Stars, was born. After seven years of writing and revising, we finally released Act One of Missing Stars on December 29th, 2019.
We've worked on several other projects for short game jams, including Arcadia (which also happens to be our first Steam release), Surkea (a horror VN that we made in about two weeks), and A Field of Flowers and Stars (our first collaborative work with our sister studio, Watercress). We're still continuing work on the full version of Missing Stars, and we hope to release the full version in a few years.
