Idols are the most popular thing in the media right now, and the rising idol company Lyriq has a convention to run this weekend. One catch–the virtual idol, Aiko, is malfunctioning. Only one thing can fix Aiko–finding the person who programmed her. But it isn’t easy for a sapient computer program to find her creator–that is, without help. That’s where superfan Hana and a ragtag team of convention attendees come in to save the day.

About this project


Idols are the most popular thing in the media and the rising idol production company Lyriq has a convention to run this weekend. There is only one catch: the virtual idol named Aiko is malfunctioning. Only one thing can fix Aiko, and that is finding the person who programmed her. But it isn’t easy for a sapient computer program to find her creator–that is, without help. That’s where superfan Hana and a ragtag team of convention attendees come in to save the day.

AIdol: Artificial Intelligence Idol is a visual novel that is programmed in Unity. Features include light character animations, panning backgrounds, and an interactive story involving a virtual idol, a PR team, and a pack of misfit convention attendees.

Featuring relaxing, upbeat music as well as cute art, we hope this will be a visual novel to enjoy.

AIdol: Artificial Intelligence Idol features a relaxing and cute original soundtrack, which you can listen to a preview of here.

Please vote for us on Steam Greenlight! We hope our project captures your interest!

Don't have a Kickstarter account? That's okay! Feel free to send a pledge through our Paypal and we will fulfill that pledge alongside the Kickstarter pledges. You can order the different pledges on our site!

AIdol is a visual novel that features a large cast. Let's meet the characters now! Melow has done a wonderful job creating cute designs and illustrations that fit the theme of AIdol perfectly.

You may sample a small introduction to the story. We hope it holds your interest and gives you an idea of how the game operates. The demo can be found on our itch.io page!

Available on the following platforms:

The full game will be approximately five hours long, depending on the individual player's reading speed.


We chose Kickstarter to help bring us extra funding to our game so that we may bring AIdol to its maximum potential and completion. Anything beyond that will go towards further polishing the project and adding fun bonuses. By absorbing most of the costs ourselves, we hope to minimize the amount of funds needed in order to reduce risk for our backers.

We are asking for $6000 USD. In the following pie chart, you can see where that money will be going.

We have made decent headway into completing the game. You can see our estimated progress on the following chart.
