ParaNichi Magical Romance is a visual novel, available on Android devices, targeted at those who enjoy romance featuring a female protagonist.
While the story initially focuses on classic slice-of-life elements and takes place in a city like any other, it also features themes more typical of the Western Young Adult and New Adult genres, including trauma, urban fantasy, the supernatural, and horror.
Each route features over 100,000 words of story content. Two routes are available at launch, with a third in the works. The game also features unlockable fully-voiced scenes with the love interests!
The protagonist Violet Clarke is a young woman desperate to get away from her oppressive parents and pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
She comes across a fantastic deal for a room in a share house and decides to take the plunge. The rooms are fully-furnished, the neighborhood is great, and the roommates seem nice… But Violet soon discovers the catch is that the house is haunted! Not only that, but one of her roommates is a witch…?!
As she grows closer to each of her peculiar roommates, she comes to realize that everyone harbors a secret. The question is whether it’s dangerous to her… or them.
