INDIE CORNER: Support the Romance Game “Birds of Paradise” on Kickstarter

The Kickstarter for the romance game, “Birds of Paradise” is currently ongoing and needs your support!

Birds of Paradise is a romantic comedy visual novel with dating sim elements and a diverse LGBT+ cast. The game incorporates suggestive themes, and makes reference to sexual activity between the main character (Robin) and much of the rest of the cast.

STORY/SYNOPSIS

New city, new job, new apartment, new life!

Fresh out of college, Robin thinks she’s hit the jackpot after landing a position as assistant manager to the Birds of Paradise; an upcoming boy band with dreams of making it big. Robin is thrilled to be working with such high-profile clients… though not everything is as glamorous as it first seems.

Disastrously, Robin is left high and dry when her boss unexpectedly quits, leaving the fresh-faced recent grad fully in charge of the band. Robin soon finds herself overwhelmed by the boys’ flamboyant personalities.

Left to fend for herself and help the band find success, Robin must navigate constant aggravation as the band members vie for her attention. Still, she can’t help but find them endearing…

To make matters all the more complicated, rival femme fatale rock band the Birds of Prey are constantly trying to steal the boys’ spotlight.

Not only must Robin navigate her relationships with the Birds of Paradise and the Birds of Prey, but she must ensure both she and the band succeed… in life, love, and in the limelight!
