A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Set in sort of a "Lion King" style world, Levar is a lion cub trying to make his way in the world. With his brother, he leaves his home to rejoin a pride of lions ... who happen to hate him, after an accident when first meeting the royal princes of the pride.

Levar's decisions are in your hands as you play through his life from a young cub until he is a teen. Almost all of your decisions will have some sort of impact on the final outcome with three possible endings.

This is my first visual novel game and I am learning a lot as I go. It will be 100% free, so you have nothing to lose really if you try it. I hope you enjoy it. Both the demo and the finished game are safe for all ages.*

*  (There is some cartoon blood in the finished game. If that makes you uncomfortable, it may not be the best game to play. It is not horribly graphic though; just some blood, no major injuries are shown and none of it is in great detail. The demo does not have blood in it.)


Finished game has:

11 characters you will get to meet
17 special images
3 different endings (Good, Neutral and Evil)

-- Finished game will be released Q2 2018. -- (June. 22nd UPDATE: Game is delayed a short bit. Game will be available early July.) (Update July 6th: It will be released on July 12th. Depending on where you live it could be July 13th so watch for it then.) :) Update July 12th: The full game is now out. :)
-----------------
The Demo info:

Moson's Intro: In the first part of the demo, you will be able to go through a quick tutorial for the game, a short meeting of some of the characters in the finished game, and see some stuff from the making of the game. You can also skip all of this and go right to the demo.

Game: Once starting the game, you will get to play two scenes: one from near the start of the finished game and the other from closer to the middle of the finished game, giving you almost a hint of the game itself.



Updates:

Aug. 15th 2018 - Update 1.3.0: 

* Fixed some spelling and wording issues.

July 12th 2019 - Update 1.4.0: 

* Fixed some spelling and wording issues. 
* Fixed bug that was stopping some special scenes from playing
* Added side images on one of the scenes.

This story is the prequel to my other stories and comics online.  https://timitu.deviantart.com/gallery/50432051/Moson-s-Comic

There is work being done on another game that sort of continues this one. Though as far as I know at the moment it will not have the same "choices" type style. It will be some time down the road before it comes out though. But something to keep your eye out for if you enjoyed this.

Mac users, I have not tested the mac version just yet. It is there if you do want to try it. Please let me know if you notice any problems with it so I can try to have them fixed either for this demo but especially for the full game.  Thank you.

Hello there,

I wanted to say "thank you" for this game. Was really entertaining, solid, beautiful and... graceful, can I say?

This game is pretty simple, but still got me playing it almost without a pause. And there is a problem... it is too short! When I thought that the real action has just began, I actually  finished the game already.  That was kinda disappointing and confusing to see the black screen and writing "Good End", while I found this ending... sort of disturbing, to be honest. Dark, but like a good fairytale - our hero is happy, that's all that matters.

Game reminds me kinda of interactive movie - action goes on, you just put it in motion, in right direction. I really like this, mostly becouse it's NOT exhausting for the player. Especially when story and the characters are written very well.

Anyway, game has left me with feeling of wanting more of it. That's as good as bad thing. Good - becouse it says a lot about how amazing the piece was and you still want to be the part of the story. Bad - cuz, as I said before, game is not long enough for me.

To summ it up, I really enjoyed this piece, left me kinda speechless at the end. Maybe author will give us, the fans, something more if we motivated him/her enough? To be sure, I would be ready to pay for game like this one, only bigger and harder, with more options, more endings, more consequences of our choices and actions.

Best wishes,

WMB

Thank you so much for your comment. I totally hear you. I do have some good news for you. While it is sort of the end, at least of this game itself (no real plans to extend this game itself) there is plans for a second game already in motion. It is still probably a year or two away from happening but it is going to happen. :)
When I did this one I thought only 20 people, tops, would want to play this game. I have been blown away over the past year how many people are enjoying it.

I too enjoy games that branch out in story paths more, and where your choices do effect things not only current things but future things in the game as well. Because of this I believe the next one will be much better.  There will not be only one sort of ending. There will be a "True ending", that will bridge the massive gap between "Levar's Life" and my comic I have been making.   But I also want players to branch out and discover the "what ifs" that can lead to a completely different ending that doesn't have to lead right into the comic. (One thing I kind of wished I had done with this game as not every ending had to end with the same major outcome.)

So again thank you so much for the comment. I will take it fully to heart, and keep it in mind while making the next game. Hopefully it will wow you once again. :D

No problem. If anything needed, feel free to ask.

Ok after a long wait here we go i got part 2 and my ending up :) this was a great game and i wish we had more animal visual games there so fun to play ^_^ 

Ok, since you weren't going to replay the game for the better ending I'll upload the ending I got from the very first playthrough which probably appears to be the best one (good ending). It's still not too happy, but far better than the one you got and hopefully will make you less upset about how this game ended. Now I'm interested if someone got bad ending, but I'll hardly get it myself as I kinda have moral principles of being nice, truthful etc. (same reason I'd never play Undertale for genocide ending/kill any monsters there, won't ever receive "betrayal" ending in Angels with Scaly Wings etc.).


On the games 1 year anniversary the bad ending will be posted to my YouTube. ;) I just finished recording my play though of the game and plan to start posting it to YouTube starting this Friday, June 28th. The last one will go out on the 12th of July. :) I will stop by here and reply to this one with that video if you or anyone else wishes to see the evil ending but not take the evil route in the game. It is pretty dark.

Here it is for anyone who wants to know the evil ending but doesn't want to have to though to get it. SPOILER of course. :)

They are a lot of fun. It is something different. There is something unique to it. Thank you so much for playing though the game. It was fun to watch. :D

OMG what a work of great talent this game is, seriously, I'm rather impressed. Didn't expect the good ending being like that though. You really should make more stuff like this and I'd even buy it if it gets released on steam, for example. Playing this game almost felt as good as playing Angels with Scaly Wings which was my favorite visual novel. Sure it'd be a bit of an exaggeration to compare them, but still the feelings were sometimes similar. If you're not familiar with it, definitely play it for artistic inspiration. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for this creation, it brightened my 2 sleepless nights =^^=

I am happy I could help. Thank you for your great comment. I will have to check out "Angels with Scaly Wings" sometime. :) I do plan to do more in the future and already have scripting for a sort of "sequel" to this game coming. But it will be a while before it comes out. I learned a lot making this game and my goal is to make the next game even better because of it. 

Started Playing the Game Today, got Pretty far and made 2 videos here is the first part :) i'll be putting up a whole playlist but yeah its super fun and cute :)
