One of the ways we designed this visual novel to feature a lot of skin, and make it make sense (which is important to us), is by setting the story within an island climate that is so hot, people have no choice but to wear very little. If you’ve ever spent time in an island town you know it’s very normal for women to walk around in their bikinis and sandals. Imagine that sort of vibe, where everyone is glistening with sweat, and because it’s an island city, like Hong Kong, they’re wearing much more street-driven styles and high heels.

By the way, this is Honey. She’s not in the story as a major character. She’s just watching videos on her phone in her plastic dress, while waiting for the tram to take her home, after a sweaty night of dancing at Ehko’s hottest club, Chocha.
