I like the Trailer very much. It´s a shame theres no Update for so long.

Hi there!
I am creating a collection of fully blind accessible games, and your game is listed under the "blind support tag".  The word "blind" means different things to different people, and within that wide spectrum their are various levels of expertise with visual UI's.  but as a fully blind gamer, I am wondering what features this game provides for those who can not see the screen at all.  Do you have "screen reader" or "text to speech" support?  Is your game fully playable with a keyboard or controller, rather than having to point the mouse at buttons on the interface? If the answer to those questions is no, it would still be great to know what options are provided for those with less severe visual impairments, so that I might make them aware of your game's usability for them.  Thank you for any information you can provide, it's very much appreciated! :)

This game is so British it turned my coffee into tea!

I can not wait for this game to be fully released! I know it’s on hiatus at the moment but I hope that doesn’t mean it will never come out. I know it’ll be amazing and I’m so excited to play it when it’s finished. The art btw is GORGEOUS, I can’t get enough of it!

is it finished ?


No, I hope is it not abandoned.

beause you like it


The Hiatus is a shame. The Demo is a masterpiece

Is anyone else having troubles opening the game on a Mac? I've downloaded the folder but the game keeps closing itself.     :((((((


Hey is this game still being worked on? Their tumblr and Instagram haven't been active since August 2020 and the game itself hasn't been updated since April 2021.


Hello, thank you for your interest in Forbidden.
The Game is currently on Hiatus.
Thank you for playing ! 


What a mean cliffhanger!

I like the game so far! Alexander is a very interested character!


Thank you for playing Forbidden ! We're glad you loved Alexander :3


is the full game out yet?


no, I talked to one of the persons and they are currently on break, I think it was the writer that is on break.


Hello, thank you for your interest, as the person above said, the game is currently on hiatus. 


I'm in love with this game! The artstyle, BG music, art and everything is great. The story actually pulled me in and I was so disappointed when the demo ended. The characters are very interesting(the LIs as well as the side characters) and I can't wait to get to know them better. Alexander is my favorite though(loved his CGs).

 There are a few grammatical and writing errors but I didn't notice them until my second playthrough coz I was so immersed in the story. I like the MC too, she seemed to be trying to make the best out of what she can while staying strong. I just wanted to ask, Will the whole game be free or commercial? And any estimates as to when the game will be released?

Great art! Can't wait for more!

Thank you so much ! <3


I've really enjoyed your game! The character art and backgrounds are incredibly well done, and the atmosphere is perfect. The only complaint I have is that the grammar could use a bit of work, but I'm sure it'll get better as development goes on. I'm super excited to see where you two will take this project, the story line seems really interesting.

Also, William is an absolute angel lol

I only just started this game, but right from the start... I'm playing it at just the right time, because I AM turning 23 this year just like the protagonist lol! Makes it feel more realistic! Very excited to continue playing.

Oh my god. I've kept playing, and reaching the "two truths and a lie"-- I was also literally born on Halloween, so seeing that option totally floored me! Lmfao!!! Such completely random things in your game so far fit me to a tee! Only surprising me and making me enjoy it more so far.


Thank you for playing Forbidden and for giving us your feedback! :3
Hehe it seems you're the real Heroine of the game! We're glad you have many things in common ! 


So excited for more.


Thank you for playing Forbidden and for giving us your feedback! :3

The suspense is killing me!

Although, it's better if you take your time! I tried to program a visual novel using ren'py, and....it was hard, the coding....things could go wrong!

The experience made me more grateful to visual novel creators!

I love your art, and the storyline is fire! OwO

Alexander is too hot for my eyes!! T-T I need my safety goggles!

Thank you for playing Forbidden and for giving us your feedback! 
Ah yes we used Renpy to program it and it was pretty hard for two amateurs like us but we're happy all the efforts payed off!

Ohh An Alexander fan you're rare! Thank you for liking him! 


how do i play games???

You will have an instruction window appear when you click the download button !


Question? Do this story have a female Love Interest?

Hello ! The version available is only a demo of two chapters,  some love interests are already introduced and others will appear/become LI later on !


I LOVE the game so far! The end of part 2 really got me going, I'm excited to see when the next parts release! :)

Thank you so much for playing the game ! We're happy you enjoyed it,  we're doing our best !

Alexander has no right being as pretty as he is

Aww we're glad that you loved Alexander 💙

um, the settings are really hard to read... black text on a very dark background.


Hol' up, is this the same person who does the art/thumbnail for CDawgVA (Connor) on youtube??


It does look really similar 


Hello! Haha yes I'm the one who draws thumbainails for cdawgva !I'm glad you recognised my style!  💙

Hello! Haha yes I'm the one who draws thumbainails for cdawgva !I'm glad you recognised my style!  💙

I love this game and the art is incredible!!! I'm in love with Aiden, his personnality looks wonderful. I can't wait for the next chapters.

Aww thank you so much for playing and for appreciating Aiden ! 


Loved this, can't wait until you guys upload more! I really enjoyed the characters and the backgrounds, all the art honestly. My only critique is the grammar needs some work-definitely get someone to give it some polish and punctuation and this could be truly stellar!

Thank you so much for the feedback and for playing the game! It honestly means a lot to us, we'll work to improve it !


this game is SUPER INTRESTING!!!! would wait for the full version<3 anyway thank you for making this prettily written game

Thank you so much for your feedback and for playing Forbidden ! We'll be doing our best ! Thank you for your support ! 


Hello! I really enjoyed the short story that is the 1st act I suppose (??).

Anyway I just wanted to ask if you would carry on with the story since the ending was SO intriguing!! I have so many questions which I hope won't be left hanging! The art was marvelous as well, the quality, the colours and style....!!  And the teachers are SO dreamy!! So yeah I really hope you guys will keep up the amazing work! I'm sure you're still working on the spelling part since I've seen the game updates but anyway, sending my cheers and encouraging to carry on!<3v<3v<3

Hello! Thank you for your interest and for playing Forbidden ! We're happy you liked it ! Your feed back means a lot to us ! 

For now the project is on Hiatus since the writer is taking a break , but we'd like to continue it ! 
Thank you so much for appreciating the art and the visuals, we're pleased to know that the characters spoke to your heart at well ! 

Thank you so much for your support! ;)


Would you be able to adapt this game for mobile, specifically Android? My PC broke so now I can't play all of the VNs I wanted to try out...

We're trying to find a way to make it into android and iOS ! Thank you for your interest !


i love Aiden :> i want to go to the end of his route :> looking foward for act 12 come and sequel too...please do not stop this game . The arts is very beautiful


Aww a fan of Aiden, it's so rare ! Thank you for playing the game *^* 

We're happy you enjoy it! Although we're a small team of two but we did your best and hope to continue it in the near future !

Thank you for playing! 



Really enjoyed the game so far! All characters are interesting to watch and their interactions with all those little jokes and sarcastic remarks are so much fun. 

Oh, and the end of second act!! 

Also, visual artist did such a great job, everything and everyone in the game look amazing!

 Thank you for your work, looking forward to see more of the game~


Thank you so much for your feedback ! We're happy you like the characters, we did out best to twist clichés and make them stad out ^^ Which character did you like the most ?

And as the artist I'm very happy you liked the art, so thank you dear !

We're just a small team of two but we hope to continue this project in the near future! 

Thank you for playing it !


I really liked the game. I like the pacing, illustrations and plot (at least what we got to see till now). Most importantly all the characters felt like people with depth instead of two dimensional characters. 

Thank you for making an amazing game!!!

Oh thank you so much  for giving Forbidden a chance !  We're happy you liked it , it brings us so much joy to know that the character felt more real and has depth , you could tell that much from the demo , you're amazing ! 


I love this! The illustrations, the characters, the plot, and the dialogue are excellent!! I will be here, waiting for more! <3

Thank you so much for playing  the game!  We're happy you liked it ^^ 

Thank you for your support ! 


I couldn't stop reading. Lovely story, art and characters. The translation (?) seems fine despite the many typos. Good job!


Thank you for playing Forbidden ! 

The typos and errors are under revisions ! 

Thank you for your support! ^^

Hey there! Was wondering if this game is a complete game? The descriptions say that it's Act 1 and 2; will there be more acts in the future or is it complete? And if so, how many more acts do you plan to release? Any time frame?

Thank you! This game looks amazing so far, with both graphics and story! :)


Hello !  Thank you for your interest on the game ! 

Yes for this version you have the Act 1 and 2 !  We're hoping to continue making the sequels of course, the final may be around 12 acts aprox! So for now we're waiting for a positive feedback to see if we shoud continue the project or not , since we're only a small team of two ^-^ 

We hope you'lle like the game! Don't hesitate to tell us what you think if you played it !  W're happy happy you like the graphics and story ! 


I have not finished the game yet but I will say, YES PLEASE CONTINUE THE STORY! xD Other comments and reviews have covered some issues already, so I'll just say that the story and mystery are so intiguing and well thought out. I'm honestly so impressed with the story and art, I'd really love for you to continue it so much! I NEED it. xD

If you guys need any testers in the future, I don't really have any experience with beta testing but I'd be willing to help with the English text editing! I do have like an extremely low level of python knowledge from working in renpy myself, so correcting the script even in a .rpy/python format would not be an issue for me. Just an offer if you ever need it!

Thanks again for the amazing game so far! Excited to see what may happen next!
