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... Because of this, I decided to make this project a Commercial one. The demo is free though ^.^)/
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.
Jesus Christ, I've been following your game and it's progress for 4 years (I finished your other Nusantara game 4 years ago and I absolutely loved it, I inhaled all the routes inhumanly fast) The fact that you're almost done with it fills me with an emotion I can't explain but I am so proud of you!! I haven't commented on any of the updates recently cause I have the attention span of a goldfish but I did see your update about you getting married!! Congrats! (You looked absolutely gorgeous in your wedding photos 💕)
Anyways, I'm so ecstatic to see the end result of your hard work. And I hope these past 4 years have been treating you well!! Thank you for taking me on this journey with your memorable characters and storylines, and thank you for inspiring me to make my own dating sim/visual novel <3
I'm not really sure how to word this considering i have never left a comment before even tho i have been interested in this game for almost 4 years. ( ps: i apologize I really don't know how to prove it)
But the fact that the game is almost done left me so shocked considering so many things have changed, but it feels like such a short time.
And the fact that u even got marrieddd. U genuinely are absolutely GORGEOUS and like how other people mentioned u looked like a princess!! <3
This community REALLY does feel like a huge friend group and wow just the fact of how time passed leaves me flabbergasted EVERY TIME
Anyways i really hope ur doing great and that u have a great life, week, day. ( I don't know which one to say but u get the point)
Hi, ymirhoe! Ikr? Where did the time go? I could've sworn I've just posted Bermuda's demo XD
I also love the community <3 I never thought you guys would support me for so long, let alone staying until now ^///^ Patreon also have helped me through difficult times. It helped my mother to pay the bills, feed my pups, and fix my house's roof when it caved in--honestly, you guys are the best Q_Q It feels like I have an invisible, second family & friends guarding my back and I have never felt so grateful!
...I hope it doesn't sound too corny, but that's how I really feel :'D So thank you for being here and I hope you're healthy no matter where you are <3 Please take care, rest plenty, and don't skip your meals! xoxo,
Omg, KimYuuki! Welcome back! I'm glad to see you again~ Yes, I'm doing well, still slowly but surely like the snail I am x'D
I don't know what else to say besides thank you for the patience and for the warm support \(TuT)/ Here's hoping you're also doing great over there! Please take care and wait for me just a little bit longer~
Oh gosh! Im saving my pennies, i will buy this game as soon as its available! Been a fan of yours since i played "Leyend of the winged ones". I already played the demo and I can tell this game will be amazing.
So glad to see how much progress you've made, just a bit longer now! : D and congrats on the recent wedding too! I'v been watching this project since I found Legend of the Winged Ones a few years back. That vn was one of the ones that kickstarted what may or may not be an addiction >.> either way, you did well on that game and the demo for this one. I can't wait to see what the finished product will look like! : D Best of luck in all endeavors.
Every time I pop in to see how the progress is going I'm always so impressed, Honestly you've done such a good job so far I remember finding this in early 2018 and falling in love with the playable demo then. There's not much in terms of progress left now! Enjoy some time off ^_^
Thank you, JoJo19! I'm really happy and flattered to hear you've followed me since 2018 ^///^ It's truly a blessing for me to have so many patient supporters--you guys are saints! Now that the photoshoot is done, I'll do my best to get back to work this week!
Here's hoping there won't be anymore distractions :'3 xoxo,
I haven't been keeping up with updates. I went back and read the previous updates, but an still a bit confused. Is the game available and will get an update once the antagonist is ready, or is the whole game delayed until you finish the antagonist? No rush and no worries either way; I'm just trying to figure out where you are in game development. I bought this a while back, so whenever it's ready, I'm going to jump on it!
So far, there has been a beta test for the main routes (the three bachelor) and currently, I'm developing the antagonist route :'3 and yes, you can say the whole game isn't ready until I finish the antagonist route >< it's kinda like the grand finale while also giving my proofreader time to finish checking the main routes ~
I thank you for the understanding and the patience *bows* we've come so far! >\\\<
I'm sorry for the late reply, I somehow missed this one notification OuO;
You give me too much credit though! I'm much slower than other developers so the least I can do is to write an update every week (so you'll know I'm still alive, kicking, and trying to finish my game x'D)
Here's hoping you stay around and patient enough to walk along with me to the finish line :'3
Hi, Artemis_Ameretsu! Thank you for checking up on me and I'm sorry for this late reply Q_Q I really appreciate your support and I hope you'll keep walking with me until it's finally time to release this baby QuQ
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, ardeallydead! I'm really sorry for this long overdue reply Q///Q I don't know how I missed your notification, but I really just read your comment!
I'm flattered that you like the demo a lot, but I hope I didn't mess up your sleeping schedule >///< However, it's really a relief that you think the demo is good :'D sometimes I wonder whether the story is too slow/too much info in the beginning, but seeing that most of you enjoyed it really makes me happy!
And I'm also glad to hear you like my sense of humor x'D I thought I was getting rusty lol--but yup, always happy to make you laugh!
Here's hoping you'll still visit me now and then <3 Take care and I hope you're well! xoxo,
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 ^.^)/
