Palinurus is a Kinetic Visual Novel that was created in two weeks for the 2015 NaNoRenO Visual Novel Jam. One year after the initial release, we are proud to announce the Palinurus Anniversary Edition, which features new sprites, backgrounds, music, a completely redone UI, bug fixes, and more.

A drifting traveler boards a one-man space shuttle destined for Alpha Centauri. This shuttle is piloted by Budapest, an artificial intelligence program designed to serve humanity. She is a hardworking, diligent program, just a little naïve to the ways of the universe, and intensely dedicated to her directive. But when disaster unexpectedly befalls their ship, the two of them are sent careening through uncharted space, left with dire prospects for rescue.

Stuck in a floating cockpit drifting through the empty ocean of stars, they have only each other to rely on. Between interesting discoveries both old and new, Budapest quickly develops new traits and quirks beyond her programming. As she attempts to navigate her own troubled seas, the passenger discovers that there is more to this program than previously expected.

Watercress is an international, internet-based group of volunteer developers who work together to have fun and create interesting stories along the way.

TL;DR: Greenlight campaign for Fare Thee Well on Steam, heavily remastered, please vote on them, be it positive or negative!

Heya everyone! It's been awhile since many of you've seen us, the last time probably being either the VN;Conference in which Watercress gave a speech on team management, or in our last successful Greenlight campaign for the Palinurus Remastered Edition just a couple months ago. Well, it's that time of the year again, and my God have we been busy.

I'm here to announce our next Greenlight campaign! We would've liked to have more time to work on the campaigns themselves, but due to the looming threat of Steam Direct, we decided to hurry up the process (let's not spend potentially thousands of dollars on a free game before we have to). Anyways, I'm officially announcing Fare Thee Well (Remastered)!

It is receiving a similar treatment to that which Palinurus had under its own remaster, except this time around we are doing a helluva lot more.

Fare Thee Well (developed in two weeks for NaNoRenO2016), has/will have updated/replaced music, updated/replaced sprites, a cleaner UI, and most importantly - a nearly completely rewritten Act 2, given the feedback we had gotten on the part (trust us, we saw the issues as well and we worked really hard to make it flow faster than molasses, not to mention the script is no longer riddled with the typos you'd expect in a rushed NaNo game).

So, please be sure to vote on the game, be it a negative vote or a positive one! Be true to yourself and what you want to see on Steam, we wish to earn our spot on Steam like we did last time, so be honest! Thanks to everyone who's a part of our wonderful community. See you all soon!

Be sure to stop by and talk to us on our discord!
