Long ago, when the world was still young and humans had only just learned how to write,

Some of these beings even possessed human characteristics, such as the centaurs or Kinara Kinari.
But there is one legend, lost and forgotten...
...for there are none alive today who remember the tale.

This is a story about birth and death, peace, war...and love.


How it all began from the gift of Blue Crystal
Both a blessing and a curse from the Goddess.
And now,
The Legend shall be unfolded by a human girl.

    1. i... honestly cannot choose. every character had something about them that i loved and adored
    2. i play quite a lot of otome/vn's to cope with the fact that the men irl disappoint me LMFAO, i decided to play Nusantara cuz of the art and the storyline (both certainly did not disappoint)
    3. i really enjoyed this game, the art is pretty, the story is interesting, the guys are beautiful (physically and mentally), my only takeaway is the few grammar mistakes that i caught (didn't bother me that much though).
    4. i don't have anything else to say, other than I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOUR NEXT WORK HEHEHE

Hi, jasmiiineteaaa!

3. Yup, grammar is my nemesis from the beginning of time o(-(
No surprises there, even my proofreaders are sometimes overwhelmed with the script ^^; we're doing our best to improve though!

4. Thank you! I also can't wait to deliver my next baby to hear your thoughts!

Hope to see you around,

1. Which guy did you like the most and why? -Reksa I am always love that kind characters he looks cold but inner he is a cinnamon roll

2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara --well ı really play a lot ı think ı choose nusantara cause ı like fantastic things and this cover picture looks really good

3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc. --ı have to say ı loved all music especially the music at the end characters is really good maybe you can improve your arts and maybe we can have some girl character to choose ı dont know what you think about it  

4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism? --thank you so much for this beautiful game ı will play it over again again  ı hope you just keep make more game (and ı am really sorry for my bad english it isnt my native language )

Hi, sora_carmel!
Congrats on finishing the game!
Thanks for taking the time to write me a review and don't worry! Your english is just fine, I understand it very well~ ^.^ 
You're not alone though, I keep stumbling on grammar and such, my proofreaders are working hard editing the script for me x_x

1. Ah, Reksa, my boy, how many hearts are you going to steal? x'D
2. You mean fantasy? Yes, me too! I'm a sucker for fantasy genre--especially the ones with magic and mystical creatures~ I just hope I did them justice >< 
3. Thank you! I'm also very happy to have found those music, which are available to use for free :'3 
And yes, I have rooms for improvement! I'm doing my best to get better and better each day!
4. You're welcome and thank YOU for giving my game a chance -^.^-

1) It's funny; I just saw the recommended play order but followed the exact same one during  my playthrough! As for my favorite guy, I'd have to say Reksa by a long shot! Adorable possessive aggressive tsunderes and all.  That aside, he was also the most visually appealing for me.  I loved his character progression and also the underlying mystery.  Then again, bad-boy tsundere appeal and all, I may just be biased.  Regardless, I was actually extremely impressed with Rama and his story,  Mitra was sweet and while I enjoyed him as well the latter two were just that much more awesome.  

2) I play quite a few otome games and visual novels and this one would have been on my playlist one way or the other.  I adore the art style and the guys are gorgeous! And I do adore strong female leads.  Everything about this game sounded great and playing it was a treat.  

3) Choosing one aspect as the best would be difficult, because a good game has a wonderful combination of everything.  The game was visually gorgeous and the guys were perfect.  The characters would have to be my favorite aspect- ALL of them were so interesting and engaging.  The individual character-traits of the guys were so unique and lovable.  The story was also interesting- and I adored seeing different sides to the same story and nothing seemed redundant.  Reksa was definitely the character to be played last though....

4)  Besides Bermuda Triangle, are there any others in progress?  I would love to try more of your games! Keep up the great work! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it!

Hi, tash777!
Congrats on finishing all the routes and thank you for taking some time to write me a review! -^.^)/

1. You're not alone lol, many people seem to like the tsundere type--heck, in Bermuda, Arya is currently the most popular one despite his foul mouth :')) I'm very happy to hear you like all of the bachelors tho! 

2 & 3. Thank you! I also loved playing otome games, still is, but due to the lack of time, I find myself only reading novels these days QuQ
I do realize that I still need to improve though. Especially in the quality-control department! I'll do my best to become better and better>:D 

4. Sadly, no. I only have those two for now >_<;
My hands are already full with Bermuda and I'm a bit slow at programming OTL
BUT! I'll definitely complete it one day! We're already halfway there! Slowly but surely, and I'm posting weekly updates at Monday so you'll know where we're at :'3

Thanks again for dropping by and I hope to see you around!

1. Which guy did you like the most and why?
Mitra~
Mitra is such a soft human being that needs to be protected <3
2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara?
Yeah, I have a ton of favorites! Including Nusantra: Legend of the Winged Ones and Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle! ^^
3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc.
Story and Art overall is amazing! maybe some minor fix here and there might fix it!
4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism?
I think i'll be just fine!

Congrats on finishing all the routes, EveningTea! And thank you for dropping by! -^.^)/

1. Now this is a pleasant surprise! Mitra didn't get picked often so I'm happy for him~
2. Oh my, you have played Bermuda's demo too? O.O I'm very glad to hear you also like it >///<
It'll take some time for me to complete it, but stay tuned with the weekly updates~
3 & 4.  Thank you! QuQ I will definitely keep improving!

Thanks again for coming and see you around!

This is a pretty solid game and I just adore everything about it. All of the characters are lovable and they all have their own motivations for their actions. I'm quite surprised that a lot of people do not like Rama because I absolutely loved him. I truly cared for him, felt for him, and I feared FOR him instead OF him. Mitra is adorable and Reksa is hot ngl but everything about Rama was just...hauntingly beautiful. I loved all of the endings, and yes even the bad ones, because they were all realistic. The go home ending was also heart-warming.

I play a lot of otome games and I can definitely say that this is a stand out and one that I'll remember. I was curious about the culture since I live in Southeast Asia myself and was delighted when I recognized the fruits and some of the traditions. The only minor thing that I had problems with were the sound effects since some tend to be loud while some were faint. Other than that, this is a really good game with beautiful art and exceptional writing! Thank you for this and I hope you continue to make more! Much love <3

Thank you for the love and congrats on finishing Winged Ones, z00na!
Rama definitely needs more love. His route is the most complicated of all three so not many people can be patient/understand his complicated psychology--but when someone does, I'm always happy to see them gaining a better understanding/knowledge about Rama and his troubles! 

And yes, I'm a little struggling with sound effect quality-control because the sound volume is different when I compare using headphone with speakers. My laptop's speaker is a bit on the low side so maybe that's why? Sometimes, things that you can only vaguely hear on speaker is loud/normal with headphones--so if I increased the volume, it'll be normal at speakers but loud with headphones ^^; honestly, I have no idea how to fix this.

This game was the first otome game i played here on itch io and it did not dissapoint! It is absolutely amazing how you can build this atmospheric indian folklore <3. I looooove Reksaa \\\>_<\\\, besides his looks, he’s got that possessive tsundere attitude not to mention I’m a sucker for forbidden romance tropes. Looking forward to play your other games <3

(1 edit)

D'aww, thank you, Mei030!
It's an honor for Winged Ones to be your first played otome game on itch.io ^///^ you'll be surprised to find many good otomes here! 

I see that Reksa's popularity is still as high as ever lol.
I'm happy to hear you enjoyed yourself and, um, the cultural reference I used is from Indonesia, not India x'D and yup! I'm working on my second one, Bermuda, as we speak! The development is a bit on the slow side though---but I update every week at Monday so I hope you'll bear with me as I slowly but surely polish it until I'm ready to present it to you!

(1 edit)

That was a rollercoaster of emotions. I'm not gonna lie I'm really picky with VNs a lot of the time and I've been hesitant on starting ones from this site because of that but after completely finishing this game just... wow. I loved the ENTIRE cast which is honestly so hard for me? I usually don't like players like Rama so I did his last and got BLOWN AWAY by how loveable and complex he was. I Loved the art style, I adore how this was stylized, and I adore 'moving' CGs so I was super happy with those. I loved the world you put us in, the idea was new and refreshing and I wanted to help however I could just making all these precious children stop hurting.Your writing was amazing and gave me the kind of attachment to characters in a game that I haven't felt since Hakuoki or like... Dragon Age if we aren't sticking to just VNs. I was crying throughout the entire game bar Mitra's route(I feel like I have questions on whether or not I'm having his babies), I'm crying now that it's over. I'm gonna go stalk your other game's demo now because i love your work ;-;

(1 edit)

Congrats on finishing the routes and thank you so much for giving my VN a chance, LuminousSidhe! I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed yourself! ^///^

There's no better compliment than hearing you love the entire cast! They're my babies and while I know I still have rooms for improvement, it makes me feel warm to see people are still playing my VN and loving it <3 my only regret is that I'm slow at completing a VN so you'll need to wait a bit more before you can play Bermuda ^^; I update every week at Monday though so I hope you can walk with me step by step to completion!

Once again, thank you for dropping by and showing me your support! I hope to see you around!

I still love this game ciel XD gods dammit. 

<.< also question for yah i require help in doing backgrounds

You don't know how happy I am to hear people are still loving my game, MariaDarkchild--so thank YOU! QuQ

and, oh? Are you also making a VN? OuO
What help do you require? If you have any question about backgrounds, ask away! I'll answer as best as I can.
But if it's something else, maybe try adding me on facebook so we can chat? 
https://www.facebook.com/cecilia.s.susanto

yeeee im trying to make a visual novel based on markipliers date with markiplier videos and turn it into a game. Its mainly a fan game. I know how to code the engine its just making the sprites and CGs XD 

and mine aint that good so yee ill make a facebook account and add yah on it x3

Okay! Looking forward to it! 
Ah, for the sprites and CGs... all I can say is look for style references that you like and use them as quality-control/goal >< it took days for me to be satisfied with a sketch and even then, I still go back to polish them now and then--but that might be just me :'D
Will your facebook name have 'Maria' in it? 

i normally use Discord to chat with ppl but i havent set up a facebook yet lmao XD yeah im dumb

(+2)

1. you will be surprised, in shock even, at this most unexpected response, for the one to have won me over is... okay, it's Reksa, i surrender. what can i say, i love pissing off angry boys <3 . ahem. he's honestly such meme material,,,, every time he growled?? i was laughing so hard because all i could see was one of those really tiny, really soft and really fluffy cats/dogs with a >:( face,, AND HE'S ESPECIALLY CUTE WHEN HE GETS ALL POSSESSIVE AND CLINGY, as someone who is also clingy and loves being touchy, i am literally so weak for that. which is why thou shalt not worry, for i very much love the other guys as well!! Mitra was super nice, i'm really happy he kept his word about confessing and that he waited for Tamara to sort out her feelings, i was: 🥺🥺. he is most definitely a big teddy bear and i am most certainly soft for it. and Rama... i love him too but he's a huge idiot and i wanted to choke him on more than one occasion, but as my friend said, he probably would have liked that; so i resorted to rooting for Tamara whenever she scolded him ! hell yeah!! and did i mention i love pissing off angry boys? sure, it... would've gotten me killed, probably, maybe, but it's worth it if i can smack some sense into that boy.

2. uhh Nusantara marks my 140th otome thus far, so i'd say yes, yes i play a lot of otome. am i obsessed? perhaps. we shall never know. and to answer the second part of the question, well, i've noticed the game whenever i scrolled through the otome tag and wanted to try it someday buuut kept putting it off because i?? am really lazy???? why was i scrolling through the tag for new games if i wasn't planning to play any, you say? i . don't know???? why does my answer have more question marks than the question?? ANYWAY, i found myself having some free time these days (like... most other people... stay safe btw!!) and a friend (the one i mentioned earlier, in fact) highly recommended it, so i decided to finally play it. which i did. in one go. well ALMOST one go, because it was 2 am and i was sobbing over Reksa's route, i wasn't prepared be sad buddies with Rama. 😔

3. i really loved the characters!! all of them are unique in their own way - even the NPCs. it was super funny when the whole village (well, most people from it) was rooting for Mitra and Tamara to be a thing, lol. and i absolutely loved Asih and Yuda as side characters!! it's not often you get to see those types of characters getting their own lovers, much less with such a nice dynamic, so i was really happy to see them! i also liked the art (i am soft for the soft coloring and thicker outline style), and the fact that the game is set in Indonesia, and the music too - it may be royalty free, but i found it fit the scenes well, especially when it came to the quirky ones, hehe.

4. Tamara's dad is hot (...and i will show myself out the door)

Hi, Purrple Bun!
Congrats on finishing Winged Ones and I'm so sorry for this late reply! >< 

1. Ah, Reksa, my boy. How many girl's hearts you need to steal until you're satisfied? 
And you're not alone, my dear. I also love to piss off angry boys--otherwise, why would I create Arya for Bermuda? //runs away

*cough*

I agree that Mitra is a big teddy bear, but lol, I laughed so much when you mentioned Rama x'D I imagine many people want to grab him by the collar and shake him/strangle him--but yup, you're right, he'll like that rofl.

2. I understand that too well!
I also have a long list of otome games that I haven't played yet. I found myself re-playing my favourite ones, like the House of Fata Morgana, Dandelion: Wishes brought to you... oh and don't even mention how many rom-com novels/korea drama I keep putting off ^^;; there are so many things to do but so little time! OTL

And wow... I feel flattered but somewhat concerned when you tell me you kept playing until 2 AM--you're not supposed to finish it in one day but on the other hand, I'm happy to hear Winged Ones got you hooked x'D 

Please give your friend my thanks and hugs for recommending my game!

3. Thank you! I really enjoy designing the characters!
Sometimes, a scene can change when I program it. It's like the characters are driving me to a certain direction >< this is the reason why I keep going back and forth between scenes, polishing them until nothing feels odd--I could've sworn the characters have the minds of their own x_x

4. *cough* I know :'D

Thanks again for visiting and dropping me this sweet review! I hope to see you around, Purrple Bun!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

no worries about it!! and thank you too, for making such an amazing game and replying nevertheless. :D💕

glad to hear that we managed to make you laugh and that you relate, hehe. and oho, is that so? now i'm really excited to get started on Bermuda. 👀

omggg, now that's a whole mood!! there's so many animes and k-dramas i have yet to finish or even start on top of my huge otome list aaaaaaaa,,,,, yet i keep coming back to those i've already gone through (cried for Nightshade just the other day,, again,,). and judging by the titles you mentioned, may i be as bold as to assume you like crying as well? 😳 both The House of Fata Morgana and Dandelion are SO GOOD, i enjoyed them so much (translation: i shed so many tears), i can definitely see why you can't help but want to replay them.

...i should replay them sometime...

sorry sorry, the time kind of just,, slipped,,,,,? ehehe i can be quite the marathonist when it doesn't involve actual running. Winged Ones got me hooked and it got me . real good.

thanks and hugs have been successfully given! she said, and i quote (because i do love embarrassing her) "theyre so cute i love sweetchiel" (¬‿¬ )✨

i can relate to that on a spiritual level. one second you feel like you've got everything planned, the next you find yourself changing the smallest details. 😔

you're most welcome!! i will certainly stick around. ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

    1. Which guy did you like the most and why?
    Definitely Reksa. I'm a big sucker for those aggressively overprotective cute types. I just wanted to pat Reksa on the head for being so adorable hngh. Additionally, I got to experience what it's like in the Komodo tribe, which was something the other 2 routes lacked. But I mostly liked Reksa because he had the cutest scenes with Tamara. Also the good ending with him made me bust all of my uwus. I liked Mitra second because he has that gentle and kind vibe and you feel secure just by being with him. I liked Rama's route the least because he was so unpredictable and hard to deal with, though I understand that it was kinda the point with his dark back story and all. Still, I really didn't like him that much even when Tamara started liking him and vice versa. 

    2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara? 
    Yep! I have an unhealthy obsession with visual novels lol. At first glance, Nusantara seemed to have great art which is why I was drawn to it. Upon finding out that it also had fantasy themes, I was sold. Not to mention it also features half-naked bishounens.
    3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc. 
    For me, the characters would be the best element. I really love how fleshed out they are. Each of them has their own quirks which made me fall in love with them. I could even relate to Tamara when she said that the people she met felt like her actual family, because I got attached to the characters just like she did. Second best would be a tie between the story and art. I loved the special art scenes!! I also loved the backgrounds which made me even more engrossed in the well-written story. Also, the characters' dialogues fit so perfectly with their personality. I even laughed several times because of how adorable some of the exchanges/conversations between the characters are. My favorite dialogue would be this just because I giggled so much when I read through this part. '
    4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism?
    I guess one thing in the story that put me off would be the confrontation scene between Rama and Tamara in Rama's route. Rama was having an episode and Tamara started to get angry and yelled at him, telling him how lucky he is to have people around him who love him. While I understand that she was only frustrated because she cared so much for Rama, something about being angry at someone who's in a dire condition doesn't sit right with me. It kinda felt off that she started to rant about her own life problems. I know it wasn't your intention, but it came across like she was trying to tell Rama that his problems doesn't compare with hers or he has it easier than her. Again, this was just how it came across for me, and others might have a different understanding/perception of that scene.

1. Ah, Reksa, our champ. I'm not surprised anymore you picked him and that's why I recommend to do his route last x'D Congrats on finishing all three routes and thank you for giving them all a chance <3 and I understand~ Rama is not everyone's cup a tea but I'm still happy you read through his story to the end!

2. All hail half-naked bishounens! I mean, we need more otome games with fantasy elements! >< I'm glad that my VN caught your eyes~ at first, I was not sure whether people will like my game or not, because it's rare to have novels with Indonesian cuclture in it--not to mention the addition of animal characteristics but I'm glad I took the risk! ^.^

3. Thank you! I try my best to make all characters unique. Even the NPCs, so I'm glad to hear you can relate to the characters :'3 

and lol, Reksa's route was so much fun to write x'D I have so many fave moments there and that's one of them!

There's still room for me to improve though... I'll do my best!

4. Ah, I'm glad you bring it up, my friend! And that's exactly what I wanted to potray. Tamara is not an adult, not mature, and not perfect--just like any of us--and in my opinion, most people in the world starts like that. We have our weaknesses, we are selfish, and we would rather 'talk' than 'listen'. We think our lives are not as fortunate as others, but the truth is each of us have our own problems to tackle.

*SPOILER ALERT*

And that's why Tamara needs to learn about 'tolerance' and 'patience'. In Rama's route, I make a lot of options where the correct answer would often result in Tamara having to wait upon Rama. What I wanted to say/the lesson I'm trying to teach is... if you truly want to understand about someone or if you want someone to open up to you, we need time and patience. 

You don't need to talk, just stay by his side. In Rama's case, you need to put in extra effort because he is mentally weak and he's at his limit, at the end of a 'cliff' if I must say. Just a slight push and... you know the rest >< 

Um... I'm not sure what else I can explain @@ it's a bit hard for me because I've already half forgotten about the events' timeline and order, but in any case! Tamara's efforts after the outburst contributes in a way. At least Rama knows that she's being sincere ^.^ it's one step at a time~ life is all about learning and with time, we'll become wise... this is what I call character development!

I hope I answered your question o.o; I'm sorry about the text wall though ><;; Hope to see you around! 

xoxo,

SweetChiel

I'm so happy you took the time to reply!! About the Indonesian culture bit, I forgot to mention but I was actually pleasantly surprised that the game was set in Indonesia! I'm always interested in learning about other cultures, especially those of fellow southeast asian countries (hi from the Philippines lol). And about Tamara's personality, it does make a lot of sense now that you've explained it. Often, we do make the mistake of 'talking' rather than 'listening,' and it's so refreshing for that to be shown in the main character of an otome. I can see the amount of effort you've made into creating a well-balanced game, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy it! Again, thank you so much! I'm looking forward to more of your works <3 

can i just say that i laughed so hard when i got rama's good ending because i got the bad ending thrice before finally getting the good ending and then it turns out that the title of the ending is "finally!" lol really made my day

Hi, miminana and lol, I know that feeling!
Rama's route is the most tricky compared to the others so it's not a surprise that the good end is hard to get (...it's kinda intentional, don't hurt me x'D) 

Congrats on getting his good end! I hope you had a good time <3

yay thank you! i just finished all of the endings and wrote my answers for the questions hehe thank you for letting us experience such a great game!! <3

(1 edit)

I played this game a while back ago and thought to revisit it for the feels <3

1. Reksa for the win; I usually go for the flirty type, but Reksa is so adorable to tease/ poke with all his growling. Made me all fluster-fied with his possessiveness and I loved it when he hid his embarrasment with his gruff exterior. >_< Second best, Rama cuz of his playful; yet, completely off-kilter nature. There was never a dull moment with him lol. His also happened to be the most emotional. Not to be outdone, Mitra happened to have the cutest route with the shyness, bear personality, and helpfulness despite what route you chose. On another note, Puspa was so adorable in Mas Mitra's route and the women flocking him while he had no idea how to deal with them, amusing. He's not necessarily "my type" compared to a combination of the other two though :P

2. I play otome games too often for my heart. Stupid heart palpitations! Some think me obsessed. Not true. I just love the squiggly feels I get when reading romance, makes me feel like soul mates exist somewhere far, far away xD I initially chose Nusantara mostly for the demi-humans (the shirtless guys on the cover helped, kidding). Plus, I have really always liked the "dropped into another world" storyline. My recent fave being all the new reincarnated into a villainess mangas/ anime. 

3.The best characterists of the game are how emotional some of the harder themes are such as death, war, rape, suicide etc.. It can be really hard to write those scenes and you managed to convey such potent emotions behind them. I'm a writer myself and as one I've found it hard to go dark without being overly dramatic and to balance/ write realistically certain emotions. The graphics looked really stunning, as well. As far as what I would like more of would be romance/ more courting/ passion, but I am a romance addict ^_^;

4. I've heard about Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle, so the demo is definitely on my play next list. Thank you for all your hard work and wishing you luck on all future endeavors, cheering you on :3

Hi, castonovia44!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write me your review ^.^~

1. Congrats on finishing all three routes! Ah, Reksa is our reigning champion as usual~
I'm also pleasantly surprised you enjoyed Rama's route! He is the most complex character in the story and people tend to be impatient with him so I'm very glad when you said 'there's never a dull moment with him' x'D

2. Me too! I've always been a lover to romance/fantasy novels so imagine my happiness when I discovered otome games lol *highfive* 

And yes! Recently, I've been reading chinese/korea novel translations about villainess, for example; the Abandoned Empress, Transmigrator vs Reincarnator, Doomed to be Cannon Fodder, etc--*cough* I recommend to give them a try, especially when you have a lot of time in hand ^.^

3. I try my best >< those dark themes are certainly not easy to write so I often find myself going back and forth, editing the script again and again until I'm satisfied. You can do it! The secret is to read more manga/novels and screenshot or take notes of the lines that you like >:3

Of course, I'd rather avoid reading angst stories if I can Q_Q they always make me cry but heck, sometimes they're so good, I think I'm turning into a masochist OTL

4. Thank you and feel free to take your time! Bermuda still has quite a long way to go before it's completed! Let's work hard together! ^.^)/

Alrighty! Now that I have finished playing, I am going to be happy to answer these questions. 

    1. Which guy did you like the most and why?: Reksa. I like his route the most because I felt I had the most information about both sides of the war. Plus, I found it to have the most romance while also giving both points of view. My second favorite was Mitra since he was just a marshmellow and such a treat to talk to. Rama is my least favorite simply because he was just a jerk and his personality switches were a bit scary (though his route does make sense and was still fun to play).
    2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara? I do play a bunch of otome/visual novels. I play them frequently becase I like the interactiveness of it. I decided to play Nusantara because of the unique themes, plus I had never seen a "lizard man" interest before. I also greatly enjoyed the art style. All the guys also felt like they had personalities beyond sterotypes which is always refreshing. 
    3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc.: I would say the best are the art, characters, and music. These aspects had a great harmony and the world was also built very well (thank you for the map graphic!). I think the only thing that needs work is fleshing out Rama's route. His route had a lot of overlap with Mitra's so it felt that he was a little forgotten. Overall though, I found this to be a pleasant experience and the play time was perfect.
    4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism?: Keep up the good work! I love finding new developers and seeing them flourish and I think you are doing a great job. Now I have to go find Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle to play it as well! :D

Hi, MermaidVictory!
Thank you for dropping by and answering my questions! -^.^-

1. Congrats on finishing all three routes! Thank you for giving them all a chance and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed yourself~ I see that Reksa is still our number 1 bachelor x'D and yes, his route gives you a lot more information compared to the other ones, which is why I recommend to play his route last~
And I agree with your opinion about Mitra and Rama! Rama's route turned out to be darker than I expected--and oh, if you're planning to play Bermuda next, fair warning; the bad endings darker than Winged Ones >< 

2. Thank you! I try my best to make my boys unique--if you ask me, we need more otome games with demi human bachelors! I'm planning to stick around with fantasy genre. 
Hopefully, I will be able to make lighthearted stories with a fairy tale quality in the future~

3. Thank you! I'm really happy to hear you like my art!
I still have space for improvement though, especially in the quality control department ><; 

4. I will! Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions!
I'll look forward to hear your thoughts about Bermuda ^.^)/

SweetChiel

Hello SweetChiel!

I appreciate the heads up and I will most definitely keep your warning in mind for Bermuda. I did finish the demo the other day and was genuinely sad when the demo ended. I wanted more!

OH! Speaking of Bermuda, while I was playing I noticed that if you rename the character and then look at the status in the menu, it still shows the default character name (Maya).

Looking forward to the next Bermuda update - and if there is somewhere better to bring up these things, please let me know!

Have a good day,

MermaidVictory

Aah! I didn't notice! O.O 
Thanks for telling me, Mermaid Victory! I'll change it ASAP to 'Your Status' ^.^

You can keep telling me about these via comment or go to my facebook and chat with me~

I really appreciate the help and I'm very happy to hear you like Bermuda's demo!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

I had a sudden thought as I was replaying this game today that Chop Suey by System of a Down is practically Rama's theme song xD

(1 edit)

Lol, hi, GayTree!
I mostly use royalty free background musics, so yup, you might find those musics used by other game devs~

However, in my 2nd game, Bermuda, I do my best not to use the same musics as Winged Ones and with what little budget I have, I donated to a talented composer(alcaknight) to use her song and I also commissioned someone for a few original BGMs like the one I used for the trailer so look forward to it! ^.^

You are doing great work and I know that many of us apperciate it! Thank you for doing what you do. 

You're welcome and thank you for dropping by, MermaidVictory! -^.^-
You guys are awesome--your support is what keeping me going~

Hello there! :)

I just basically spent the whole day playing the game and I can really recommend it :3 

I had some issues though, I could not finish the route of Reksa's as the option never appeared to me even though I (in desperation) followed the walk-through :( However, I am able to reply to your questions!

1. Which guy did you like the most and why? 

Well, I totally love Reksa (even though  I could not finish the route :( ) I tend to like the characters that are a little bit grumpy and difficult to approach in the beginning. The fact that little by little you get his trust and the feeling of accomplishment  like "Oh, he is being more open to me" is really nice. Besides that, he is always trying to be a better person and even though he does not like something he still checks something before deciding. He is also pretty much forward, what I really appreciate in a relationship as I know where I am standing :3 He is also playful and cares a lot about the people he loves :3 Totally my type! Also I laughed the most in his route :D
BUT, believe it or not was the most difficult route of the three of them. I do not like lying nor stealing, even for a good cause- I would have tried fishing the fish in the waterfall than stealing them... so it was kinda harder for me to get all the cute moments :3 (Even though I still haven't finished his route due to the bug ;____;) 
Mitra's story was kind of like- whatever you do, you will end with him and Rama's story is basically the same story I have with my boyfriend, so it was really easy as I have already passed through it once in real life ;p 

2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara?

I used to play more like 4 years ago, but due to some personal circumstances I had to stop doing things that makes me REALLY happy or are fictional. Now that for a while I've been doing great I came back to my nerdy-otome self and I am checking the list I did before the long pause in otome games. Nusantara was one of them, so I tried it yesterday and it was a good choice. I love it! :) I used to played in phones, in PC and that's all :D it really varies and I tend to choose all kinds of VN. I actually prefer the most otome, but I also like some criminals ones, or warm heart stories (not necessarily partner love)...I even have tried some eroge games, so you can say I really like VN :D

3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc.

PROS
- The characters were loving, all of them really, even Purba at the very end had this honor or how can I say it... some values that nowadays are not frequently seen.
- The world was also really lovely and beautiful, and even though there was war in there, I found it a really peaceful place to be :D
- The idea of the characters (that they were birds, komodos) was also nice. How each of them had some characteristics was cool.
- The humor of Yuda and Reksa made my day... I was laughing a lot!
- The battles- some of them were really exciting. I really enjoyed them.
- All of the men were gorgeous and even Asih was really pretty :3

CONS
- Mitra story was kinda boring to be honest. It was like whatever I would have chosen, he would still have loved me, what kinda make it more like "my fate" instead of like "playing the game" (do you understand what I mean? I am bad at explaining myself ;__;)
- The sounds were sometimes too loud in comparison to the background music. I had to lower the music when there were battles for example.

4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism? 

Can you please help me finishing the route of Reksa with a happy ending? I really try doing the walk-trough and I still only got one choice. I even tried clicking everywhere just in case :(

Overall I really enjoyed the game :) Worth paying for it (will do so soon) :)

Hi Bea! Thank you for playing and I'm sorry to hear you're havung difficulties with Reksa's route! o.o; That's quite a rare case--I mean, people usually come to me when they can't finish Rama's route, not Reksa x'D

Well now, let's see...

#SPOILER ALERT!

1.For Reksa's route, the first thing you need to do is to 'save him' then 'lie to him' because otherwise, you'll be locked out of his route. After stealing some fish, you need to pick choices that increases his affection points. He is similar with Rama, you need to focus on him and not other bachelors ><

After you raised Reksa's affection, you'll go to his village automatically at some point. If you get this, congrats! You're halfway through his route! Lastly, to get his good ending, you need to 'give him the pink crystal', not the explosives. 

I hope this helps! If it still fails, try click on 'new game' maybe? As far as I know, Reksa's route shouldn't have any bugs >_<  my official walkthrough is at lemmasoft or you can follow another one made by someone at steam forum~

2. I see! I also love to play otome the most--I'm a romantic person who can't get enoyhh romcom x'D but lately, I've been exploring other genres and gotta say I enjoy almost everything now--but I tend to avoid angst and sad endings Q_Q 

Oh! If you like mystery/criminals, I recommend you to take a look at Phoenix Wright! It's a game from japan with mindblowing plots! Their characters are interesting and sometimes, they serve us wih with simple but hilarious 2D animations x'D

3. I agree with your list lol x'D

Mitra's route is the easiest of them all and I get with what you mean by 'more like my fate'. 

Hmm... how do I say this... 

You can still choose to go back instead of ending with him, but when I created Winged Ones, I want to make Mitra as the guy we'd love to end up irl :'3 I mean, he courted you like a champ lol--and it's hard not to be flattered unless you have another guy in mind~ and... I was really soft hearted back then, which is why I didn't make any bad end for him @@ 

4. Of course! How far are you with Reksa? o.o Did you enter his village? Did you get the 'give explosive' or 'give the pink crystal' options? You should get his good end by picking 'give the pink crystal' >< but if the option doesn't appear after you follow the walkthrough, maybe try a 'new game' and try fast forwarding? There's often a case where we missed a choice and the option will be locked out. Unlike Rama, Reksa's route shouldn't be locked out as long as you saved him.

Hope to hear good news from you soon!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

Hello SweetChiel!

Thank you for your quick reply! :)

1. I managed to finish the route (finally :')) but I do not know why, when I tried doing it in my laptop it did not work. I had to play in my boyfriend's laptop and then it appeared (weird thing, but my computer has many issues and many times breaks games :D ). Anyway, I really like that Reksa is really possesive and sweet....I'm loving him <3

2. Oh, will search for the game and give it a try! Thank you for the recommendation ^^ I also do not like that much drama nor sad endings. I tend to become really attached to the characters, so any kind of really sad and dramatic games tend to kill me in many emotional and existencial ways ;p 


3. Well, I also really like Mitra and I even called him Mr. Perfect, but as you said- I wanted to have Reksa no matter what, so it might have been why I was not that much into him :) Anyway, to be honest a love all the guys and the stories in each of them <3

4. As mentioned above, I managed! :3  Eaeaea.... My laptop just wants me to be miserable, so I can only enjoy Reksa's Happy Ending in another laptop ;p 

Thank you very much for your help and for making the game!  I really enjoy it a lot! <3 
Right now my plan is to play your second game "Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle". So you will be hearing from me pretty soon once again :D 

One more question though, if I want to help you as to buy the games or something like that, does the option here in itch,  is okay or you'd rather I send it in a different way? I really want to help you as a thank you! :)

Looking forward your reply! ^3^)/

Ah, I'm relieved to hear your problem is solved x'D congrats on finishing the game! *throws confetti

And you're welcome! Um, actually, Thank YOU for giving my game a chance and for loving it ^.^-  Reksa gained another fan and today, he's still our number 1 boy <3

I look forward to hear your thoughts about Bermuda--it's still in progress and I've been working on it slowly but surely >< but if you want to show your support by buying the game, there's a paypal icon on the game page~ just click on it and you'll be directed to buy with paypal, or maybe donate directly through itch.io when you're downloading the demo and buy the game later? It's up to you! OuO

Thanks again for coming!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

Finally i finished the game and i'm pretty excited to the next one. I can tell that you're working harder on Bermuda Triangle. Tbh, i think Mitra's route was a little boring, i'm not against the shy ones but he was waaaay too shy. Rama kind of scares me but i still love him and Reksa... well, not much to say except GODDAMN HOW HOT CAN HE BE? My favorite route is definitely his.

(+1)

Hi, Lossy!
Thanks for playing and for dropping by! ^///^

Yup, in terms of difficulty, Mitra's route is the easiest and most easy going one while Rama's would be the hardest and testing your patience + endurance. On the other hand, Reksa's route prevails once more lol x'D I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed yourself to the fullest by completing all the routes!

Congratulations and stay tuned for Bermuda! There will be a cameo of Mitra, Rama, and Reksa appearing on the Autumn Village ;)
xoxo,

SweetChiel

(1 edit)

I replay the game again because it brings me nostalgia. I did answer the questions on DeviantArt but that was 3 years ago. I guess let's freshen up a bit and have bigger wall of text!

    1. Which guy did you like the most and why?

It's between Mitra and Reksa. But my pick is Reksa and with Mitra, very close behind. If he's real, I would choose Mitra, he's a husband material. But in the game, I really love Reksa and his route so much. His route shows how the Komodos lives and more about them. In Rama's route, he warned the MC about the attack and it shows that he cares about her and how her actions affected him. I love him, not just by design-wise but also his personality. His type of character is usually my type in VN games. I like that the MC have to earn his trust to get his ending.

I don't have any issues with Rama at all. I'm neutral on him. His behavior is very PSM-ing though. I like his behavior towards the kids and it's just fun to see. It's kinda sad that in other routes, you can't save him. I wish there were. It felt hurt that to properly save him is to play his route and that's it. 

But overall, the characters, I like them, they have very diverse traits that make them lovable. Mitra with him being a big softie, Reksa being the bad boy, Tsundere-ish personality and Rama being emotionally engaging(and relatablity) and sweet on his own way.

    2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara? 

I don't play a lot of VNs as of right now, I'm very picky, in fact the only game I'm waiting to come out is Cinderella Phenomenon Fan Disk, Magical Paws 2 and of course, your current project, Bermuda Triangle but 13 year old me is thristy for some actions and played anything romantic VN related. What makes me play the game is the title, one VERY specific word. Nusantara. That word pique my interest, it's very Malay sounding word and I never saw any words like that in a game title.

It made me download the game. I'm from Malaysia and it's very rare to see a VN that has Southeast asia, specifically Indonesia culture into it. (I have an Indonesian mother but she doesn't really talk about the tradition and history behind them.) Usually, they would have East Asia and Western culture. Not that it's wrong, it's just the usual. So seeing something SO different is interesting and make me excited. The only games that I know that was released in Malaysia are Sara is Missing and The Simulacra.

    3. Which element of the game would you say was the best and which ones would you say need work? Consider story, art, characters, music etc.

The best elements are the characters both in design department and personalities. They are so lovable! Asih, Yuda, the triplets, Granny Sukma, and the bachelors are great! The story is also interesting and engaging! 

As for the cons, at the time when you released the game, some of the CG art pieces are iffy. Like Tamara seeing Rama(?) getting shot by arrows that wasn't a good piece not gonna lie but the majority of it are fine, same goes for the background, the Herb forest, it doesn't feel the same as other locations, that's that. But seeing the Bermuda Triangle sneak peak, you definitely improved from those!

    4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism? 

I don't have a question for the game, I feel like I understand them but maybe a little criticism on the story. There is a text cut scene where Rama said something along the lines of "it's her fault, why does she needs to involve herself in my personal business" It doesn't sit quite right on Mitra and Reksa's route but on his route it would make sense. Because the MC is literally involve with his personal business but the MC isn't up and involve herself in his personal business when she is on other routes, especially Reksa. I don't think there is one time where she goes to check on Rama, at least not on my playthrough.

I feel like it wasn't needed when the player isn't paying attention to him. That sounds so mean but you know what I mean. Another thing is that the endings, the good ones, feel so short. I don't know if they are shorter than the bad endings but they feel short.


I think that's all...? I just can't wait for Bermuda Triangle, aahh! I'm gonna snatch them up once they are on Steam! I want to see the antagonist and know more about the bachelors. Speaking of antagonist, I see that some people want this game to have Purba route, which I'm not gonna lie, I lowkey kinda want that too.

My reaction when Bermuda Triangle comes out

Hi, Mishira!
And wow, it's been a while since I received such a passionate and detailed review QuQ thank you very much!

1. Here, I'm very happy to say that you've caught the essence of every bachelor ^.^- thank you for giving all three of them a chance and congratulations on finishing the game! 

I agree, Rama's route is the most complicated of all three and it tested your endurance and patience. You either love him, hate him, or sad... but that's what I wanted to convey. In life, sometimes, you can't save everyone. Rama's psychology won't allow it. He's at the end of his wits and sadly, you won't be able to save him if you don't give him all of your attention :')

Reksa's route might be the one that have most changes though. When I programmed in his script, his lines often changes, especially when he fight. I didn't expect it to be so popular o.o; but yeah, it almost as if he had his own mind so I'm glad to see him well loved ^.^

And yup! I agree. If there's someone like Mitra in real world, I'll choose him in a heart beat lol. He's such a sweetheart and well-rounded in every aspect... *cough* >///<

2. I can recommend you some VNs to play if you want to? OuO
One of them is a korean visual novel called Dandelion: Wishes brought to you, it has full voice acting and fluffy but deep stories! Another one is my all time favourite; The House in Fata Morgana. If you want to have an idea how long Bermuda will be, play it x'D its semi-realism style is unique, but again, it grows on you! I love their music and each and every sentence is written with so much care, it seeps into your heart.

And yes, we don't have many Asian game titles out there, right? For me, I think it's fun to show that we have many interesting cultures and in Bermuda, I'll also show some of our most interesting/daring food~ *hint*hint 

Overall, I'm so happy that our culture is well received ^///^

3. Once again, I agree! I still have some difficulty maintaining CG quality control Q_Q even in Bermuda, you'll notice some CGs are better than the other... I hope it won't affect your immersion too much ><; I'm working on improving and polishing them!

However, I'm still glad to hear you like the characters ^///^ They're like my children~

4. Aaah, yes, I know what you mean O-O; some scenes will look strange when you're on other bachelor's routes and yup, I learned from my mistakes! ><; It's a bit too late to fix them now though, so... m(_ _)m *bows I hope you'll excuse me, but currently, my stance is to keep Winged Ones as it is--to remind me where I started and to improve from there.

As for how the good endings feels shorter than bad endings... you might be right? o.o; 
Personally, I don't like to read/write bad endings, but once I get into them, it's hard to stop x_x; Rama's bad end is one of my personal fave though. It turned out better than I expected, but thanks for the heads up! I'll make sure Bermuda's good ends will have some extra 'oof' to it! >:D

As for Purba... lol, I didn't have any plan to make a route for him before, but now, I can see why we want the antagonist's route x'D 

It's not easy to write them tho! Especially the early scenes, but I'll work hard on Bermuda and hopefully, it'll turn out alright for my first antagonist route ><

Lastly but not least, thanks again for dropping by and giving me your support, Mishira ^.^-
I hope to see you around!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

Thank you for the recommendations! I will probably buy them when they are on sale, a bit expensive for my usual budget for games. But when they are, I probably buy Dandelion: Wishes brought to you first since it is made by Cheritz, the same developer that made Mystic Messenger. I enjoy playing that game. Couldn't finish all of the route because it's very time sensitive and I can't help but wanted to get all of the days chatroom to 100%  but I very much enjoy YooSung and Zen's routes.

The House In Fata Morgana seems interesting. I don't know if I will buy it. Usually I went for really cute and romantic VN, very rarely stepping out of that cute genre. So, the game will be a first for me. Thank you again for the recommendations!

No problem at all! You played Nystic Messenger too? Man, it messed up my sleeping schedule but it's awesome x'D I really like their idea of making it look like we're chatting on phone! Their characters are all interesting too ~ especially Zen and 707.

Take a look at this video, I hope it brings you a smile and joy for the day x'D

And yep, when I first saw House in Fata Morgana, I never thought I'll like it as much as I do now ><

Yep! Sadly I couldn't play the rest because it kinda stop sending me chat room notifications. So I ended up missing a lot of them. I was going to go on Jaehee's route when that happened and I was on a vacation in Indonesia and I couldn't spend time on her route, so I postponed it until I get home and realize that happened. That often happens to me when I don't use certain apps for a certain time.

Mystic Messenger is a pretty good game, great story lines, characters and overall stuff. It isn't pay to win. Unlike other games, *cough* *cough* Shall We Date?: recent games *cough* *cough* The only thing you have to pay is DLCs which is optional and if you want to get a 100% on every day, Hourglass cost some money but again optional.

Mystic Messenger is like once in a lifetime type of game, at least on mobile. It's very hard to find Otome games that are free to play and not forcing you to pay to win. I remember calculating how much does it cost for me to win one of the characters route with all premium pictures and outfits on Shall We Date?: game, it was around 80 ringgit. Imagine being an American and pay 80 dollars for ONE character. Their earliest games aren't even that expensive, at most around 20 ringgit and get everything.

Got side tracked there. I'm very passionate when it comes to Otome games on mobile because that's where I play a lot of the Otome games. I watched the video and GOD! It brings so much memories! I watch those type of videos when I was very early on the fandom. It's just amazing to watch.

It bothers me that Rama dies in every route except his own

(+1)

Me too, but his psychology wont let me write another way :')

(+1)

Honestly it's not fair that Purba is so hot like damn.

I know x'D 

(1 edit)

Like I know my heart is going Reksa, Mitra or Rama, but damn my hormones. It's like this little voice in the back of my head going "you could lick those defined abs right up." 

Edit: I just finished Reksa's route and no matter how lickable Purba's abs are he's a first class a-hole.

Actually, I have half the mind to make Purba's route when I've finished the 3 bachelors routes... but I think I'm kinda lazy to make/write one because I'm really late from the planned release date x_x;

and lol! congrats on finishing Reksa's route! x'D

So i'm here to replay since i'm dying for Nusantara : bermuda triangle lol. I must say I haven't tried the demo for the second game, since I feel like it'd make me even more impatient haha! Anyways I really loved this game when I played it years ago and it's excellent quality for an indie game (and i'm a picky person with otome! I usually just play the good japanese otoge lol) also thanks for giving the characters some melanin haha as an arab girl I must say I prefer tan men or dark skinned men! hahaha 

Good luck for the second game, and thanks for the first one :) 

Hi, mimi777!

Thank you for dropping by, giving me your support, and for patiently waiting for Bermuda >\\\< I'm really flattered and happy to hear you still remember Winged Ones even as the years go by ^///^ 

And yes! You're welcome! We need more games with dark skinned men x'D you'll get a surprise when you arrived at the winter area though. It has something to do with Guntur's animal trait *hint*hint...*cough*

I'll look forward to the day I deliver Bermuda's completed game to you and hearing your thoughts! 

xoxo,

SweetChiel

Hey,

You're welcome, I'm glad to be encouraging. As I'm replaying I've been wondering : is the game based on an actual real-life ethnicity or culture? If so, is it indonesian? I'm not sure if I can ask but is the game based on your own background? I'm very curious, as I know absolutely no indonesian lol. What I can say for sure is I love the design for the characters with their clothes and the beautiful earthly colors.  I love learning about cultures and countries so I'd be happy to know more about how you created the word in this game!

That's right ^.^ the events in the game often based on indonesian culture! Omoed-omoed exists! You can read the details in the mini encyclopedia~ of course, some things are adjusted. *SPOILER ALERT* Like how Mitra showed off his wings--it doesn't apply to the real Omoed-omoed lol.

We also have a lot of version for Batik. Every province has their own Batik patterns so it's a bit complicated but I'm glad to see people are enjoying this tid bits ^///^

(1 edit)

SPOILER ALERT DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED AT LEAST ONE ROUTE THAT IS NOT RAMA'S


Is there a way where Rama survives while I follow the other routes? He's so important to Mitra and gaaaahhhhh. Also how did Rama's wings get injured?  love this game btw. 

Mitra is a straight daddy. Husband material right here. Where can I find one?

(1 edit)

Look at all these people coming back to replay! You know your game is good when people replay it after years and years ^^ Also played it some years ago, and I just thought of it out of the blue today. Can't wait to replay it myself in a few days. Wanted to leave my regards and thanks!

(+1)

Hi, midichats!
And yes, Winged Ones is very lucky to have people replay it over the years QuQ
I can't say enough about how grateful I am to you guys for your continuous support <3 *gives a bear hug

(+1)

I'm glad to see others are around replaying the same game. ^.^ I hope you enjoy your play, I'm getting back to Nusantara as well. *w* Chiel did such a great job on everything.

(2 edits)

I can't wait to play this game again, Chiel. I still remember my favorite guy ^.^ I hope you're doing well! See you around. :)

Hi, Anh!
OMG, I can't believe I missed your comment for 2 months! D:
I'm really sorry--I must've missed the notification Q_Q 

As always thank you so much for your support, Anh! You've been with me for a long time now! >////< *hugg

My pleasure, Chiel! ^.^

I just so admire your talent and patience, watching your progresses makes me super happy. And I can't wait to support NUSANTARA when it comes out. ^O^/

Keep being YOU and much love,

Anh

D'aww thank you! >\\\<

You give me too much credit--I mean, I can go so far only because there are people like you supporting me from behind QuQ *and also because there are supporters lurking/hiding behind the bushes, watching me with silent support lol*

I'll definitely keep working hard! I look forward to hear your thoughts once Bermuda is completed and distributed ^///^

(+1)

I played this game a few years ago and remember being absolutely in love with it. I came across it again while looking through itch.io cause I was feeling pretty bored (I should be doing my midterm essays but lmao) and I got really excited! I'm so ready and happy to play this game again; I remember I played it during my high school years and I was feeling pretty lowly, and found happiness playing this! It's definitely going to bring back some good nostalgic feelings. Thank you for making this game, and keep up the amazing work <3

Aww, thank you ct_amy! *hugg
I'm really glad to hear Winged Ones helped you to smile when you were on the low side QuQ 
You too, thank YOU for playing and loving Winged Ones! I couldn't ask for a better compliment! 
Good luck with your midterm essays! 
xoxo,

SweetChiel

i've already played this like, years back, but i'm about it play it again, i really loved it (and i'm totally gonna choose the same dude again but whatever!) also gonna see the updates on bermuda as well

Aww thank you for your love, Boo!*hugg
I'm really happy to hear people are still playing Winged Ones ^///^

It's my favorite game out of all the visual novels i've seen on this website. I just love Reska.

>.< I feel like I'm WAY too addicted to this game. XD I love the story so much that I've played through it several times. I can't wait for your next game too! The Demo for the Bermuda Triangle is looking good! I hope you keep up the awesome games! 

Aww, thank you PurpleMysteria QuQ *hugg*
I just woke up and you made my day! I'll definitely do my best for Bermuda and I assure you it's gonna be worth it, considering its word count is double--no, triple Winged Ones ^.^~

O.O You just made me so excited!!! I can hardly contain myself! :D

How i can get Rama's good ending? I try to many ways i i cant still do good ending, (if it written somewhere i can't see it 7w7, and sorry for my english)

Hint: focus on only Rama, he gets jealous easily and don't lie.
Have you tried the walkthrough on lemmasoft? OuO

I love Rama so much!! He's really an interesting character with such a realistic backstory that I feel makes him seem so lifelike and complex. 

And while I haven't played the Reksa storyline yet, I think I can say that Mitra is my least favorite. Not at all because he's a flawed character,  he's very much a huge sweetheart.. I just feel like his storyline is so PG; I kept wanting more to happen between him and the MC. more passion, yaknow? it just felt very children's storybook-esque, which.. I guess isn't bad but it isn't necessarily the most compelling thing to read. 

I really love this otome, tho!! Major props, it's so well made and the art is amazing!

Hi, Rina!
I'm so glad to see Rama getting lots of love these days! 
*cough* yup, Mitra's route is the easiest and PG-rated x'D if you want more passion, I recommend Reksa's route! I'm still a bit too shy to write anything too passionate though >///< I usually stick with cuddling/kissing *cough*

I still have a lot to learn but I'll always do my best to improve! >:D

Thank you so much for playing! And I hope you had a great time!

Now that I've played all three routes I shall answer the questions. hehe

1) I LOVED RAMA. Which is why it breaks my heart when I saw his bad ending or anything bad happening to him. Why do I love him so much? Well, he has a lot of similarities with me. It is sad but I can understand his pain so perfectly. T_T Yes he is a tough rock to crack but once you crack that rock, you'll find the purest diamond inside. That is Rama <3 He deserves nothing but love. I'd literally kill for him. I'd do anything to protect him. He's perfect.

Mitra would be second. He is like an angel. I love his positivity and innocent nature. He seems like the type of guy mothers eveywhere would want their daughters to marry. lol but I do not think he would understand the the darkness in my soul. O_O

Reksa is awesome. His story was really nice. He has a great personality and evrything but the depth of Rama's character and the way you get to see his soul opened out to you like that, that overshadows everyone else. Rama's route was the only route that made my heart beat go irregular irl. <3

2) I play a lot of otome games. I chose this one because it seemed so interesting. I love the tribal concept of it. The art was very beautiful and different from other novels. The story was fantastic. 

3) The best element would be the writing. The art needs a bit of touch up but its still very very good! I would love more flirty scenes with the characters but the story is still brilliant without too many of those, so dont worry about it. I am a huge fan of your work now. 

4) I do have one suggestion. Can you do some more Rama drawings? <3 If not, that is fine but my heart longs for them. lol. ^_^

Hi, PrincessSaoriel!
First of all, I'm sorry for the late reply--the notification got buried by other things and I've only noticed it today @@

Still, I'm so happy to see Rama get some good loving! >///< congrats on finishing all the routes!

1. Thank you for your love, Saoriel! Q_Q I'm so relieved and glad--I've been worried about you since the day you told me to put up more warnings and to hear you ended up loving his route so much, I've never been so elated before! Not everyone is able to understand Rama like you do and it means a lot for me to see you able to relate with him :')

and lol, I see Mitra's and Reksa's routes doesn't even compare to Rama in your heart x'D nevertheless, thank you for giving them a try!

2 &3. Thank you! I have a fondness for fantasy genre and yes, I still have rooms for improvement! I'll do my best to level up and make more interesting stories for you to read ^.^)/ I'm really slow at writing though. Have you seen Bermuda? o.o  

lol, lots of people want more flirty scenes, but I'm too shy to write more x'D 

4. Yup! Actually, I have more drawings of Rama in my dA & tumblr (my tumblr is a bit dusty though):

This game should come with a WARNING! 

If you are suffering from DEPRESSION or are SUICIDAL there are triggers in this game. 

I wish there were more warnings so I would have known before downloading it and playing it. The shock of what happened during certain parts of the story, really messed me up and spiraled me right back into a place I did not want to be. 

Please, to the game creator, YOU HAVE TO PUT MORE WARNINGS UP!

Hi, PrincessSaoriel! First of all, thank you for playing and I'm sorry if Winged Ones made you remember things you didn't want to remember Q_Q

I did put on warnings on the game page + ingame warning screen, but I suppose they are a bit too brief and vague (I thought it would be counted as spoilers, but you've made me realize I'm gravely mistaken x_x). 

I assume you're playing Rama's route? I hope you find his good ending as a good closure Q_Q if not, I apologize once again *bows*

I've put on more warnings and this time, they all start with capitals + bolds!

xoxo,

Thank you so much! I really am a huge fan of the game. I appreciate you taking the time to put more warnings up. I wish you the best in the future. Keep up the good work. :)

Which guy did you like the most and why

REKSA IS MY HUSBANDO THANK YOU VERY MUCH


By the way, if you got any drawings/sketches of Reksa, I would really like to buy them just so I can make him as a desktop wallpaper. I really like his art in particular. Take all my uwus. <3

(1 edit)

Hi, I'mYourSenpai! 
Congrats on finishing the game and thank you for playing!

Lol, as expected, Reksa is still number 1 x'D
I'm not sure with what you can by buying O.O There's a bonus illustration of Reksa in my dA: https://www.deviantart.com/sweetchiel/art/Reksa-Bonus-Picture-608510533

Here's the one without watermark: https://www.facebook.com/SweetChielVNs/photos/a.1473020446272456/221197427237706...

You can use it for your desktop wallpaper ;) you're welcome!

I made an account just to leave a comment. i'm very picky about stories and art when it comes to finding otome games that I can play until the early hours of the morning but i've heard nothing but great praise about Nusantara. I had always scrolled past it on the Lemma Soft Forums because I just couldn't get used to the art. With that being said, I had just quit halfway through another otome because the story was horrendously boring and I desperately needed a heartfelt story to fill the void that was the deprivation of a good story. I had a special gut feeling that Nusantara was just what I was looking for. 1 Day and 1 route later I can truly say that I LOVE Nusantara. The art isn't your usual commercial visual novel game art but that's exactly what I love about the entire game. The characters fit so well into their dialogue and the art perfectly portrays their personalities. The story is heartwarming though I am greedy and wish that there were more romance scenes. Every single character just made the story all the more easier to be cherished and wow i'm just lost for words. The constant theme of family was fantastically executed and the more I think about it the more I realise how brilliant this game is.

From the one route that I have played (Mitra) (SPOILERS?MAYBE?) the buildup between Tamara and Mitra was so well done but i would have killed for an epilogue. KOMONO tribe just take my crystals and give me all the time in the world with this precious guy. 

SweetChiel, I beg you, I NEED TO SEE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE AND SEE THESE LOVEBIRDS WITH THEIR KIDS!

Before I just about lose it, I just want to say that I can't wait to play Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle.

I have a folder on my laptop just for my all-time favourite otome games and you can be sure that this is staying there until the day I die.

Hi, nilinx!
First of all, thank you for playing and congratulations on finishing Mitra's route!

I'm very happy and flattered that you love Winged Ones so much until you decide to keep it in your personal folder! >///<

You even made an account just to leave a comment! The more I read it, the more I feel refreshed as if all my fatigue is washed away ^////^ I mean, I know that my art still have a long way to go compared to the big guns--but I'm always happy to hear people say my story is interesting after giving it a try and they had fun reading it! 

As for more epilogue... *cough*

Currently, I've closed the book for Winged Ones >_< I don't want to add or change something because Winged Ones is like my cornerstone; though imperfect, it's a reminder where I started.

However! It opens a chance for people to be creative with their imagination!
If you're finished playing, I can recommend you fanfics ^.^

This IS AN AMAZING GAME. LOVE IT!

Thanks, lulu rose! I can feel your enthusiasm and I'm very happy you like my work! x'D

:D


First, let me say that I truly adore this game. I've played through it entirely 3-4 times since I first played it years ago, and done a single route on its own many times. I've played many visual novels, but this one always manages to stand out as a favorite.

While the character art isn't perfect, the music, sound effects, and backgrounds more than make up for it. The attention to detail is amazing. I do wish the routes were longer,though. Time goes by so quickly in the game, it feels like we don't spend enough time with the love interests. 

Concerning the story itself, I am a huge fan of the way it is played out. While the writing seemed a bit funny at certain spots, the overall idea and story line is wonderful. A completely new spin on a classic "thrown back in time" scenario. One thing I particularly like about the story is the difference in routes. Games with double the love interests than in this game sometimes have less diversity. Mitra and Rama have a few similarities, but their individual scenes are completely different. Reksa's route gives you a nice picture of what's happening on the other side, so that once you've played all the routes, you can clearly see the full story. 

Overall, I can confidently recommend this game. The shorter playtime and number of love interests makes this a great starter visual novel, but seasoned players can enjoy it just the same! I eagerly await the release of Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle 


Now, to answer the questions above.

    1. Which guy did you like the most and why?

Reksa was no contest my favorite. I feel like his route was the most fleshed out, and given the most love. Plus, I'm a sucker for his type of character. Mitra is a close second, though. I personally was not a fan of Rama the character, but I loved his heartbreaking route, and I believe he had the best "Crystal Scene" .

    2. Do you play a lot of otome/visual novels? What made you choose to play Nusantara?
    I have played a ton of visual novels and am always on the lookout for games made by the people rather than companies. I first played Nusantara many years ago when I was browsing these types of games. The story was an attention grabber for sure!

    4. Do you have any other questions, comments or constructive criticism? 
    See everything above :) 


Hi, ticcitaylorr! Thanks for playing and remembering Nusantara for years! QuQ

I'm so happy to hear Winged Ones have a lasting impression on you --it's my first baby and we've come so far until we're finally able to release it on steam!

I agree that I still have many rooms to improve in the art department. If not for my proofreaders, my grammar also won't be as good ><

That's why I'm doing my best to progress step by step and polish my abilities little by little until, hopefully, I reach the big guns' high quality, like otomate for example. I just hope you'll have the patience to wait since my scriptwriting progress is really slow @@ please walk along with me by reading the weekly updates!

and wow, you think Winged Ones is a bit short? o.o then I think you'll like my 2nd project, Bermuda, it's twice as long if not more x'D

and yes, I'm quite picky regarsing music sfx/BGMs. They play a big part in breathing life into my story after all -^.^-

1. I see Reksa is still as popular as ever! I'm so proud of this boy of mine >\\\< thanks again and congrats on finishing all the routes!

2. aww thank you! I was a bit worried when I first started--because the story and the cultures I'm introducing are unusual--but I'm glad that I took that risk now ^///^ 

Bermuda is another risky choice I made by combining west and east elements. In the future, after you've played it, please tell me your thoughts! ><

Nice to meet you and hope to see you again!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

I can already see the improvements in the character art for Bermuda triangle, and I am very excited! Please, take your time with the script writing. I am definitely following along with the updates! Absolutely wonderful to be shown progress so often.  I will be sure to give you my thoughts when it is released! Until then, do your best! 

Yes! Thanks again, ticcitaylorr!

Currently, I'm being hammered by my proofreaders :")) but I'll do my best and polish Bermuda until we're satisfied with it before delivering it to you!

The weekly update is the least I could do, seeing how I'm so slow >< I'm also happy if it means I can make you feel involved & reassured with the slowly but surely progress! 

See you at tomorrow's update!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

As a mythology buff I had a lot of fun playing something based on a culture's mythology I've never heard before. Thanks for this well-made game.

You're welcome, Wings1075! Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself and thank you for playing! ^.^-

I've got to say this is one of the most expressive VNs I've ever played (and boy I have played A LOT)? Not necessarily in the art itself, but how you chose to use them! In the one route I've played so far most of the CGs had one or two more frams, the portraits moved around a lot, and the liberal use of sound made the world come alive more strongly than other games of his genre. I was honestly enthralled the whole time playing, nice work!

Hi GaHoolianGirl! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it! 

My scriptwriting is arduous, but I love breathing life into it through sounds, BGMs, and simple animations ^.^-

Good luck completing all the routes and thanks again for dropping me this warm comment >\\\< *hugs

Hopefully, I'll see you again when my 2nd game, Bermuda, is completed!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

great novel.
3 route really good and really different.

Hi idrillkalean! Congrats on finishing all the routes! *throws confetti

I have to say, I thought this was great, while I have only played one of the routes(Mitra), my heart is already filled with joy and aching for more, so I want to say thank you for creating this great visual novel, and thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to explore this world and make my fantasy go wild with possible stories and scenarios. Truly an amazing piece of work. 

You're welcome, casinocas!
I feel great and flattered to know people are still playing Winged Ones >///<
so please, enjoy yourself thoroughly and I hope you have a great time!

I'll do my best to keep improving myself and make more VNs in the future!
See you around,
xoxo,

SweetChiel

I'm cRyInGGG... Not actually but my heart is. 

 I played all three routes, but Rama's route just didn't sit right with me. Mitra was adorable, and his route was very innocent. (In my opinion) Reksa's route... was so good! Absolutely my favorite, and I'm in love with their relationship. I only wish I could play to see she and Reksa get married :(

Tamara is one of the best protagonists I've ever had the pleasure of playing as. She's hilarious, and strong. I feel like you don't see that enough in female main characters I love the humor in this game. There was romance, but in my opinion, more spice would've been fun. However, I can see why there wasn't. Different strokes for different folks I guess :)

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to playing your next game! 

Aww *hands a box of tissues to you

Thank you for playing and for boarding on my ship, whiteAugust007! QuQ Congratulations on finishing all the routes!

I understand too well about how you feel >< Rama's route is either good or not your cup your tea--a character with a complicated background is hard to flesh out but I'll do my best and keep trying to become a better creator and author! >:)

I see that Reksa is still our number 1 boy! So proud of him! And glad to hear you like Tamara and Mitra too <3 

I always want to make people smile when they read my stories, so you'll always see humor in my VNs x'D

I also look forward to hear your thoughts when Bermuda is completed! Until then, I hope you don't mind walking with me and read the weekly updates until we reach the goal line! >\\\<

xoxo,

SweetChiel
