In 20XX, an enormous earthquake shook the world and caused a triangular crater to suddenly appear in the middle of Bermuda Triangle. The world was aghast with this discovery and it became even more concerning when scout teams came across a mysterious force, preventing people from getting too close. Those who went to examine it said that the force was like an invisible wall and there was no way around it, therefore, making further investigation difficult.
Spiritual events and sightings have also dramatically increased since then. It got to the point where people began to hold festivals to honor the dead and the mythical creatures. It wasn't long until it became a new worldwide sensation and there was not a single day where spiritual events weren't on the news
Our heroine, Maya (19), was busy earning her living so this kind of event was of little importance aside from adding an exciting spice into her life. But then her world crumbled when a Goddess came and announced that her family would die in a car accident in the near future.
The Goddess offered Maya a deal: She would alter her family’s fate in exchange for closing the Bermuda Crater. In order to do so, Maya would have to go to a place called The Forgotten Isles, find what caused it, and look for a solution.
If she agreed, three men would accompany her, acting as bodyguards. Apparently, they each have their own circumstances and a wish to be granted.
Hi guys! My new project is finally here! Now before you ask; "Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle" is not a sequel of "Nusantara: Legend of The Winged Ones". This is an entirely new story but set on the same universe. It covers a wider horizon of Nusantara's archipelago. Bermuda's story will be much longer, packed with content, and has lots more visual assets than Winged Ones... I dunno whether to be happy or cry about that :')) Because of this, I decided to make this project a commercial one.
Features: - 4 Love interests (The last bachelor will be unlocked once you finished with all 3 main bachelors routes) - 9 Endings - 1 Constant Minigame - Casual Status Raising - Regular & Time-Limited Choices - Translation/Definition Notes (Click on the Orange Text!) - Mini Encyclopedia - CG Gallery - lots of CGs & BGs (I haven't calculate the exact number yet) - Depending on IndieGoGo's success, the bachelors & MC may have partial voice acting.
i just finished the whole demo a few hours ago (only writing now since i fell asleep just after playing it) anyhow, i liked it so much since the plot and the characters were so established - given that this was only a demo. despite that, it still gave us a good amount of content that could further pique the players interest - knowing mc's reasons to why they have to do this.
not all demos really give you a good gist of the story and only teases the actual beginning of it, but seeing one of these makes me happy as it's just amazing :D
i also really liked the way indonesia's language was integrated as it was based from that place - as someone from a neighboring country, i really wanna see more as
anyways here are some funny stuff from the game which i absolutely wheezed at during 3am:
kahlil: why won't we hold hands and jump right in!! :D guntur: yea and sing fuckin' humbaya while we're at it.
Hi, jojowear! Thank you for downloading and giving my game a chance! This is a first though o.o the demo package should've included all 3 versions, mac included. Once you opened it, you only need to click on 'NusantaraBermuda' app (not the .exe one) and the game should run by itself. Maybe your mac automatically blocked it due to it being a new app? I'm not sure >_<; all I can say is; try use a computer (windows) or try with another laptop? Maybe your friend's? I'm sorry that I'm unable to give you more help Q_Q
Right click on the mac app icon, select Show Package Contents, then in the Contents folder, click on the MacOS folder - there will be something called NusantaraBermuda in it - double click that to run the app through terminal.
Hello, Chiel! Hereby is my review of the demo after one (or two) years of putting it off. I always make sure to write my reviews in detail because I think it is more helpful >.< I divide this review into art, writing, and characters because those are the topics I understand the best (not an expert tho, at all). I hope this doesn't sound obnoxious or excessive or overwhelming or something because this is too LONG (mostly because I have many thoughts about the characters teehee)! And so I have to put this into Docs -_- I'm so sorry I have written this much. And whatever I have written, I’m so sorry if something offends you T_T Not my intention at all. It’s just that I’m pretty honest with reviews.
By the way, if you are curious, the review has 5 pages, but don’t quick scroll it just yet to scan this long-ass review because I prepared a surprise at the end.
(For fellow players, you can totally read this too!)
Of course, since this is long and you recently got a health diagnosis, you can read and reply whenever.
Edit1: After I have people messing with it, I changed the link to only people allowed can access it -_- Guys, I give you access not for you to try to be my editor for whatever reason. This is a review for god's sake. Now people who want access, especially Chiel or people who often comment on Chiel's weekly update posts (like @Sesame Seed, I miss you gurl, where are you? Hope you are okay), can tell me directly that they want to access in the replies. I allowed Chiel basically anything, but the rest I only allowed you people to read or comment on it. Don't suggest things please.
Don't worry. I check my phone frequently.
Edit2: Because Chiel has read and commented, I provide you with pdf version instead. Well, just in case. You can only view tho.
Jesus--5 pages of review, this is a first lol I've sent the request and I'd like to thank you for the love you've poured for my sake! >///<
I'm not sure why people are messing with it but I guess it shows that a lot of people cares x'D you've outdone yourself!
I'll take my time reading it, and maybe... how about you add me on discord so I can reciprocate your love? ;) that is, if you don't mind some spamming x'D I might reply to your review in a loooooonggg paragraph!
My Discord: SweetChiel#6894
Last but not least, I'm really sorry for this late reply--I've been busy exercising and dying from it :')) xoxo,
OMG, how--itch.io, why didn't you notify me of these comments until a month have passed by without my knowledge?! Q_Q
MariaDarkChild, sorry and thank you for playing! No worries tho! Take your time and play the demo when you're really free ^.^)/ I'm currently still busy fixing my lifestyle--or more accurately, I'm dying right now from all the exercise (my body is so weak because my work involves sitting in front of a computer all day T^T)
Hopefully you're doing better than me and stay healthy! xoxo,
I am well friendo been offline for a bit because InRL i intend to graduate college or university as its called in some cases. I hope you are well and by the by. I loved your Demo. Its amazing story writing and creativity as always keep it up and stay healthy and well.
BlinxTheRabbat, thank you and I'm really sorry for this late reply--itch.io, why--how could you do this to me? QAQ where is the notification?? this comment is 2 months old for goodness' sake!
Nevertheless, I'd like to thank you again for the warm support! I'm really happy to hear you like the demo and hopefully, you're still around waiting for the completion of Bermuda :'D
And I know! Lots of people asked me about Purba lol, but I don't think I'll return to Winged Ones because to me, that book is finished and I look fondly upon it as my first 'child' with all its strengths and weaknesses. Still, thank you for the love and I hope you're having a great day! Take care and stay hydrated! ^.^ xoxo,
I'm so excited for the release of this one. Do you have any future game plans after this one, or are you solely focused on this one for now? I just want to check because I know I'll be lining up like the rest for any games you make! :D
Hi, PurpleMysteria! Yup, I definitely have new ideas in mind -^.^- I'm not planning to stop making VNs anytime soon~ However, I don't think I'd write long stories like Bermuda again ><; it takes too much time and energy while there are bills to pay and I need to save for the future QuQ
Wow, really? It is actually super popular. Some people release routes right after they are finished, while others start releasing them after they are confident that they are far enough along with the process to ensure that there won't be too much time in between each route.
The pricing is usually based on the final price of the game. For example, if you were planning to release a game with five bachelors for $20, each route will be $4. If the person decides to buy each individual route, they are often given a code to access the unified game of they want it.
This method usually keeps people engaged long-term, keeps a constant flow of money coming in for the creator, and it allows the players to give feedback on what is available so that the creator can use it to improve other routes. I never mentioned it to you because I thought it was common knowledge amongst creators. LOL
This method may allow you to take on some of the ambitious ideas your have, but put off due to the required time commitment and lack of incoming cash.
I see... Can you give me a few links/game titles as reference? OuO I still find it a little hard to imagine how it'll turn out--like, there's a file for demo but the routes will be separated? If there are 3 bachelors, there would be 3 more files?
It still feels a little strange to me but I'm willing to give it a try~
Hi, juls! Overall, Arya seems to be the most popular character but... he'll be testing your patience in the beginning >_< a lot. I'll look forward to hear your thoughts later when Bermuda is finished! ^.^)/
Thank you so much for the support, OmegaJoestar! Every penny/thoughts counts! -^.^)/
And yes, while Bermuda is not a sequel of Winged Ones's, they're connected and there are even cameos of the past characters ;) this will be the last of the 'series', I'm planning to make a shorter story for my next project ><
Hehe, been waiting for this game ever since June of 2019!! I'm still very excited and I was wondering if you think the game will be finished this year? :^) Anyways, amazing job SweetChiel - working on a VN/Otome game for this long already is very commendable! I'll support you to the end.
Hi Steph :)! Yes I do believe so--I mean, we're at the last chapter for the 3 main routes. The last secret route is not as long as the main route so Bermuda gotta be finished this year! >_<; I'm also planning to do a beta test for my Patreon patrons once the 3 main routes are finished so look forward to it! ^\\\\^
Ahh, you flatter me--for me, I think you guys are more amazing for constantly supporting me all these years >\\\< thank you very much Steph <3 we're almost there! *Happy dance
hope like gameplay it very fun ! and i know I SAW POSTER with nusantara Legend of The Winged Ones POSTER I SAW IT but anyway i really enjoyed the game cant wait till i get to chapter 1 part 2 of the game !
May I ask what are the perks for the Early Birds tier? Are they different from the The Game tier ones (price aside)? I can't see what the Early Birds pack includes 'cause it's been sold out in Indiegogo.
I'm really looking forward to playing Bermuda Triangle!
Nope, you're not too late, lopmon_24! The release date is supposed to be last year ^^; but I'm slower than I thought, so... here we are. Chapter 5, Winter Arc programming done, Spring Arc left for the climax + Programming bonus Antagonist route!
I'm horrible at predicting release dates though, so I can only offer you constant weekly update and I hope you can bear with me as we walk step by step to completion QuQ
But if you're still interested to pledge, there's a big PayPal button on Bermuda's game page! Click it and you'll be directed to my wixsite where you can pick a pledge and I'll take note of it ^.^)/
Hi, HorsesAreTooCute! I'm very glad to hear you like the demo~
Sadly, Bermuda won't be free >< the word count is at least triple Bermuda and well, I gotta pay my bills somehow x'D you can buy the Early Bird pack if you click the pledge with paypal button tho! It's only $10~
Hi! I don't think you remember me commenting on this thread (given that you try your best to reply to everyone which is adorable :3) Well, as I said, I finished playing your previous game, Nusantara: The Legend of the Winged Ones and I loved it to the core so I was more than ecstatic when I saw that you're currently working on a new game and the demo was out for a while now. I'm also done playing the demo of Nusantara: Bermuda tho and saying that I enjoyed it is an understatement. I was just wondering if you could let me know how much the full version would cost once it's done? So that I could save up some money! Thank you and have a nice day, Sweet Chiel! <3
If you can afford it right now and have PayPal, there's a yellow button at the bottom of this page saying "Pledge with PayPal". "Early Bird" is 10$, "The Game" - 15$, so I suppose this will be the final price.
D'aww, I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed Winged Ones and Bermuda's demo!
Um, while it's unfortunate for me to not remember you--I have a goldfish memory syndrome QuQ--I'm very fortunate to have your support! Thank you!
And yup, as tekkonkinkreet said, there's a button at the game page and if you click it, it'll direct you to my wixsite! You can pledge for an Early Bird package $10 or buy it with the original price of $15 <3
Hello! I just wanted to say I really enjoyed your last game and have been watching your progress on this one. This is the first time I have ever felt complled to post. You have been so possitive and dilligent. It always makes me smile everytime I check in. I think you are doing amazing work and I love your art!
Hi, Bioras! Thanks for taking the time to write to me! >///<)/ I'm really happy to hear you read & like my weekly updates! It's also a relief because I often feel bad for making you wait so long ^^; All I can say is... you're welcome and thanks for having my back!
Oh my god! I just finished playing the demo of this game, and I have to say it was completely breathtaking! Usually I don't like playing demos because I feel like they just leave me with unanswered questions, but I really loved this one. I love the whole concept with the different mirror designs. I also love how the main characters are deeply fleshed out. Most of all, I love how it has the familiarity of Nusantara The Legend of the Winged Ones to it! Thank you for making such amazing games!
After playing your games, I've been encouraged to make games of my own too. There's a story that just keeps gnawing at the back of my mind to make into a game. If you can give me any sort of advice, I'd be grateful.
Hi, MaiHarashi! You're welcome and thank YOU for giving Bermuda a chance! I'm really flattered to hear you've been inspired to make your own games due to playing mine! ^///^
There are so many things to do in order to make a visual novel, but I do have some advises to share: 1. It's important to know how a story starts, the middle, and how it ends. You might want to make short notes, depicting the order of the scenes. 2. Commit to making progress each week! It doesn't matter how small, just don't stop. Little by little, polish it, give it your best so you won't leave any regrets, and you'll finish it before you know it ^.^
I've been silently watching the progress, I'm excited with how far the game has come and looking forward to seeing it in action when it's done! :D Keep up the brilliant work and also looking after yourself so you don't burn out.
Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in your game and for the regulars updates! I discovered Nusantara : legend of the Winged after seeing this game and it's one of my favorite VN! ^_^ Can't wait to play this one! (JK I can wait :P) So excited and I will happily continue to follow it's progress too :)
Hi, Sesshoumaru.lover! First of all, let me say I LOVE your nickname >///< Sesshoumaru is my first love lol, he's the one who got me started to delve into the fantasy genre ^///^
As for the release date... sadly, I'm horrible at predicting dates x_x; it's already way past the scheduled release date--thankfully, the fans and supporters are very patient with me!
We're halfway there and I'm updating every Monday every week, but yes, it'll be quite some time before Bermuda is complete ><; When it comes to progress bar, I'm slower than general but the one thing I'm good at is I'm committed to my work! (Well... I might have gone overboard/overambitious with Bermuda ^^; I never thought it'll be so long--the word count is at least triple Winged Ones, so... I'm sorry!)
I hope you'll bear with me as I slowly but surely progress Q_Q
So I didn't realize it was a demo until I saw your update - I was too excited haha, I still finished it though and I'm already in love with all of them :,) I hope the MC will actually get to touch Kahlil's ears and tail as well as pet the huge fluffy wolf :3
I'm actually pretty invested in the storyline as well but I was wondering: will the game be available on Steam when it's released? Also, do you have an estimate of how much it would cost? I've never used the remaining balance on my Steam wallet so I'm hoping I would be able to use it to purchase your game!
I'm pretty down with purchasing this 'cos I played Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones too and I liked it a lot, I'm looking forward to the full release! <3
Hi, Dan13TD! Thank you for playing and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the demo! ^///^ Yes, unfortunately, it's still a demo, but the good news is we're halfway there! I hope you don't mind 'my slowly but surely' progress--I update every Monday though! ^.^
Ah, yes I do have a plan to release on Steam but it will take a while after the official release because I need to update my Ren'Py version before I can upload it to Steam~
After quite some time, I realized I was in mood for otome games again, and the first one I got back to was Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones. Seeing the progress of this one makes me incredibly happy and I hope you finish it without any issues. Can't wait to play it!
Came by to check in and saw that the plot and script is already done and all that's left is mainly programming! So exciting!!! Can't wait for the full release cause I've been holding back from playing even the demo as to not spoil myself lol
Just dropping by to say I loved the demo. Since this game revolves around Maya making a deal to change her family's fate, I'm glad we get to spend some quality time with her family; it makes the emotions really click into place with how relatable she is. I can tell you put a lot of thought and effort into all of your characters, not just the boys.
Speaking of the guys, Kah'lil is so fluffing adorable, makes ya wanna give him some headpats while Guntur and Arya are such interesting characters, making for a trio full of dynamics and shenanigans. I also really like Dio in contrast to the Goddess, he has a certain flare for the dramatic that's completely charming. Excited for the mysterious fourth love interest, though I think I can guess who it will be, maybe ;) Well... it's between two people.
I'm gonna stop rambling/ gushing now. Thanks again! Stay healthy and keep up the good work ^-^
Thank you, castonovia44! I'm a bit worried that people might get impatient with the prologue--I thought they might want to get on with it and get into the juicy parts, but I'm very glad to see you like the introduction about Maya's family! ^///^
And yup! The idea is a mismatched group lol. It's so much fun writing about them and I hope you'll enjoy them too once this game is finished <3
Hehe, I won't spoiler but here's a hint: the 4th love interest has not make an appearance in the demo ><
Thank you, Yami Meian! I'm really sorry for the late reply ><;
I'm really happy to hear you love my characters ^.^- sadly, I don't have a planned/predicted date for Bermuda's completion... but some of my backers from Indiegogo and patrons on Patreon will have a one month early access to it once it's completed!
so... after pretty much falling in love with Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones, which I'm really glad I found and played first, because I LOVE finding all the little upnods to it through the story; I decided to see what else SweetChiel has done, or in the midst of doing. Delighted to say this one is another one to fall for!
So, Thanks for the wonderful game/visualnovels! Keep up the amazing work!
(PS. the "kill you with a mug" line in Arya's profile card made me giggle! I loved "Chronicles of Riddick" and that line really jumped out at me!)
First off, I want to
say that SweetChiel's art is already improved from Nusantara: Legend of the
Winged Ones (though I personally think it was already stellar so colour me
impressed). Once again, SweetChiel has successfully created unique characters
and is keeping up with the theme of them being demi humans!
I will admit when I
saw Kah'lil, I was worried since I've seen his style of character in other
games. Usually with Kah'lil's character style, I end up having mixed feelings
about them where I either love them and think they are well executed OR they
end up being the bane of my play through one way or another. xP All that being
said about Kah'lil, I have not yet seen this happen and when I first met his
character I was pleasantly surprised. As I've only read what the demo has to
offer as of April 5, 2020, I'm hoping it stays that way.
Gunter and Arya are
fun to watch interact! For Gunter, I am finding that he is just marshmallow on
the inside with that tough exterior. Gunter also has a lot of my favorite
aesthetics and character traits that I enjoy reading, so he is in the lead for
being my favorite. I state that because of his take charge attitude while also
still being considerate of this rag-tag group's needs. I hope to see more of
his character develop as the story progresses.
Arya, hard a** that he
is, keeps me on my toes. I do want to know what brand his laptop is though
since he can still use it with no outlets about to keep it charged. Currently
running on the theory that the Goddess did some magic or something to keep it running;
or that it is part of his… quirkiness? I don't know but he is amazing. His
character design is probably my favorite because it is a style I have not seen
with hints of familiarity. I do have the same question as Maya as to how he
gets stuff for half price (teach me your ways good sir!).
If you had to ask me
who my number one favorite was, I am hard pressed to answer. They all are
making me laugh and seem to all care (in their own ways of course) about Maya.
With what the demo has shown me, I am leaning towards Gunter as my favorite but
the other two are not far behind!
-- I do want to let
you, SweetChiel, know that while I was playing, the status page in the menu
still shows Maya's name as the default. Even when you change it. I mentioned
this in a reply on Legend of the Winged Ones and wanted to make sure you caught
it for when you continue polishing! --
Looking forward to
your next update SweetChiel! Take care of yourself and stay safe.
