This is a Visual Novel story game and is a remake and or reboot of a one-shot RPG game The Future Is Now and a prototype Visual Novel adaption titled The Past Is The Past.  A number of the original characters were removed from this remake. Some of the origins of this game can be seen here on YouTube at 27:51. The video explains pretty much everything in detail. About what inspired the creation and the drama surrounding it. 


Mouse: Navigate, Spacebar: Forward, Return: A.


Below are some questions that people often ask with the answers included.

"Who exactly is the main character?"

People are probably unaware, but Mira Saffron is the main protagonist of the story. She is a character that at first seems well, but in reality she is more of a character that lacks confidence, and has low self-esteem. 

"Where is the game set?"

The game is set Azealia. It is a world and or country that was inspired by the the medieval period. It is a mixture of the "Middle Ages" with fantasy and the magical boy, magical girl genre and RPG styles intertwined.

"Where are the castle guards?"

The castle guards are only featured in older releases of the game. They have or were accidentally forgotten or removed from the update. Sorry...

"Why does Prince Pancake have pink hair and look girly?"

It's just one of those anime tropes where the characters emulate cuteness. The character does not promote anything. He's supposed to be a pancake, he's technically a "sweet" say like the Gingerbread man. In the original concept "Pancake" was a girl not a boy, and his redesign was based on my original sailor boy concepts, which I later used for other creations. And yes, Teen Titans the animated series did "indirectly" mock the character "Pancake" with a quick "Boop-Boop-Be-Doop" in one episode for anyone that missed it, and for anyone that doesn't know about my original concepts and how Pancake came into fruition. Bullying people for having pink hair or wearing a sailor costume is probably a form of hate. So that being said, don't bully people based on the color of their hair or skin or what they wear. 

And for those unaware yes, I do rally the "Boop" fandom.


"Why does the character wear a sailor costume?"


The story is set in a "fictional" vintage era. During the 1800s, children, especially royalty used to wear sailor costumes. The sailor costume is to say he is regal. The costumes were popular in Europe for both boys and girls. Even the great Queen Victoria once commissioned a sailor suit for her son in 1846, which was called "Sailor Chic" at the time. 

The costumes are also trademarks of famous characters such as Disney's Donald Duck, Three Little Pigs and Popeye the Sailorman.

The costumes are very popular uniforms for kids in Asia for example, North Korea, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan.

It took a lot of inspiration to actually try to develop this character. Looking back now, it was possibly a bad idea. I later did use Pancake's design for my character Mint, probably better known as Peppermint. A lot of my character ideas have kind of been "coined" by other creators. For example, Lemon, Pepper, Ginger. These ideas and concepts I created have inspired many. 

"Who are Gigi and Lemon?"

Gigi and Lemon are two of my old blogging mascots. You can find them featured in my other Visual Novel games on my profile here. The mascots were put into the game for a novelty purpose, and to promote them. Which looking back was probably a bad idea...
