The Hepatica Spring—a beautiful bath hotel perched on the shoreline. 

As the hotel's owner, you keep things running smoothly with your colorful crew in a calm, peaceful life. 

The magical night of Midsummer approaches, and the king himself plans an appearance at your hotel! Before you know it, you're flooded by a sea of sparkling new guests from all over the land. An enchanting mix of fresh romance and exciting gossip fills the air, and the thrill of Midsummer's festive dance grows ever closer.

Soon, however, you realize not everything is as it seems with the king and his men. In this magical land of fairies, trolls, and glittering illusions, who can you trust to help you find the truth? 

Whether you decide to join the shy, ingenious Leif, the charming nomadic bard Vendel (and his drog Digby), or the fabulous fashionista Phyllis, you know your quiet world at The Hepatica Spring is about to turn upside down...

Hello! I wanted to try the game but I can't play it. It gets stuck at the beginning after the Radio Presenter talks, in front of (what I guess is) the bath hotel, with music playing and some sparks but nothing else happening. Previous to that, the transitions were really slow, so I tried just letting the game have time but after half an hour there was no change. I tried different resolutions and compatibility modes, but nothing worked. And if I save the game there and try to load it, there is music but the screen stays completely black and I can't access the menu.

Same thing happened to me :(



Beautiful game! I loved all of the characters and the differing story lines depending on the path chosen! Leif was probably my favorite but every route was fun and sweet!


Great job so far! This game looks very interesting can't wait to play it keep up the fantastic work!!!
