A World at Peace:

Perhaps you are used to fairy tales and legends of heroes who journey to far off lands to defeat a great evil who threatens the peace of the world. But what you will quickly find in this story is no such thing. For you see the world is already very much at peace. There may be a few bandits lying in wait on the high roads, thieves who break into homes in the dead of knight, and pick pockets and extortionists prowling the city streets; But there are no wars, very few famines, and certainly no evil sorcerers to stop . It couldn't be a more perfect time to be alive, especially for our young prince, who is about to come of age and soon be rightfully chosen to lead his nation. He has suffered from few plights, and rides on the coattails of his father's success. But all good things must come to an end. Underneath this peaceful world there is a bubbling mire of conspiracy that seeks to drown our prince. With the assistance of those known as Kingsguard, selected individuals to serve as the bodyguards of the royal family, the prince who soon be forced to flee his home to escape those who would wish to end his life,  to travel this unknown world that he has only ever read about in books. His journey will be long and perilous This is no dream come true nor an adventure anyone would wish for. But it is one that he has no choice but to see it through to the end.

What can you expect?

Kingsguard is considered a non-linear visual novel so your choices will bring about changes to the story, open up new dialogue, and even affect the ending. To fully understand the story and piece together the mysteries the characters will face, you must play each of the three character paths that will take you to a different corner of Torvair. The choices you make will have consequences and effect the story in various ways. 

Kudos:

The current sprite artist is TheBigSlick, who has supplied my with some amazing sprites for the three main characters and will be making more as I continue to work on the game. He has both a twitter and a furaffinity page where you can check out his work.

I also have a cg artist, SunShtein who is helping supply art at various significant moments in the game. He has a furaffinity where you can take a look as his gallery.

Lastly RULER has been kind to supply me with some temporary sprites as placeholders until TheBigSlick creates the official ones. You can check him out here at his twitter.

Updates:

This game still has much work to be done, and updates to the game happen every few months, but regardless I pour my heart into every build, hoping to make this story one of a kind. With your support I will be able to provide you with a compelling story, memorable characters, great artwork, and hopefully a dark yet thrilling experience. 

Currently, the most recent update is available on my Patreon for supporters. The most recent build will be available for download in 2 weeks time. Subsequent updates will then be only available for Patreons until enough updates have passed.

I am just in love with every aspect of this game.  From the storytelling and mystery, to the characters, to the slow burn of building your relationships, to having a bit of control over how the story plays out.  The humor in this game is certainly compelling; being hilarious when called for, but not during serious moments.  The world itself is so big and intricate, it's actually fun to learn its history and discover new things!

So far I'm completely in love with Koshiro, every moment with him feels warm, happy, and full of romantic and sexual tension.  But I can't bring myself to not run away with him, so I guess I'll have to put him on hold for the time being.  At least I get to play the other routes!

I have to admit, a big part of me wishes for a romance option with Hyosuke.  I just get so excited every time I see him, there's something unbelievably alluring about that jerk.  I'm very interested to see how his character develops, at least.

I'll likely comment more as I play the other routes, but I am very much loving this game!

Just to remind myself that i miss Leandros, Wish you are alright in another(fictional) world.

This game is amazing i hope it's still going

how many sex scene out there is it 1 per each character?

Outside of the patreon build yes. 1 per character.

(+2)

I absolutely love Leandros, he is without any doubts my favorite. He is so nice, caring, loyal and handsome

(+1)(-8)

I would like to see some watersports piss scenes here

(+2)

In short, this is a great game.

Art: Art is unique, it's detailed, but not the typical Anime/Bara furry type. Though there is a lot of empty sprites. The CG is off in Leon route compared to the other 2? I'm not sure if it's change of art style or sth. I was not fond of the art initially cause I got used to typical Bara style, but it grows on me as I developped feeling towards the characters.

Story: Story was amazing. Plot is deep. 3 different playable date, and they all have different path. Though, I'm not sure how the other 2 playout if you choose one path. Like will you just ignore the other 2 and the only character you are playing with will determine the outcome? I hope not as it will damage the "universe logic". Say for example, the best scenario with Ramos route is to recruit an army. Then at the end of other route, say Leon, we should be safe to assume that he accomplished that task as well. Like they all should unite and they have contribute to the success of their ultimate plan. But that is just my opinion.

Characters: They are all interesting and have quite a good background. Though, I am hoping to see more on Ramos, he was introduced with little connection to the MC. And currently, I still didn't feel the connection between them. It was more of Ramos took care of MC. MC needs to do something to earn Ramos's love. Though, personally, I love the kinks in his route the most (oh well, personal reason haha). All other 2 characters have also interesting story as well.


Gameplay: Typical gameplay for VN. 

Music: Good choice of music and sound effect. 

UI: Very good UI, totally one of the best looking UI

I love everything about this game so far. 

(+2)

THX for the praise of the UI - I worked only for webdesign-UIs so far, it is my first one for a game. x3

(+2)

Look at me, making an account just so I could gush about how great this game is. That should tell you how much I love this game. I'm not even generally into furry stuff(Though I've been swayed before by Morenatsu ).

Love, love, love the plot. The world building, the characters, the development and ESPECIALLY the intrigue and mystery. All of it is so good. It's easy to tell that there was genuine effort, thought and passion put into it and that it's not just another fap and forget material. I love that . I feel like this is how a romantic game should be, where every character isn't there just because MC is horny. The romantic partners are not just walking cut-outs, they have personality, strengths, flaws and purpose. Makes pursuing them just that much more worth it. Instead of the sex being the end goal, they take a back seat and the mystery and the LIs  sit in the front.

Loved all the paths for varying reasons. Personally, I felt that Koshiro's path was the most romantic one because of the history. Leandros is the second, his path felt so organic, like it's the natural next step in their relationship. Ramos grated on my nerves but I can't deny that his path was pretty funny(even though it borders on abuse), looking forward to the pay off for this path, it's just gonna be amazing I can feel it. 

Only really have one gripe, hated the MC in Koshiro route. He was royalty but I felt like he was just so rude to the Shaman and the "Elder", like a spirit took most of his tact in certain moments. There was blunt animosity towards another religion(even though he's shown to be more open minded to them before) and a stubborn denial of a spiritual event(even though the shaman has more than proven to be legitimate) and a venomous reaction to an opposing idea(even though there is only a suspicion) that felt really different from how he approached it in other moments. or maybe it just grated on my nerves how tactless or hot headed he is despite his noble background. idk maybe it's just a me problem.

Is there future content regarding Hyosuke? I feel like there is something behind all of our interactions lol like a separate(bad ending?) path or does it end in the current last chapter for Koshiro?

Really good job on this, looking forward to your updates/future projects!! I will be following this one for sure.

(+1)

Leandros is love, Leandros is life. i love him so much

I absolutely love this game. From plot to characters to even the small characters, everyone interacted so nicely and I enjoyed every moment. I really wish I could support it to get the updated build (when the game's done I'll definitely try to look into buying it.) I have a question though; if you were to update to build 1.02 per say, would you make the 1.01 build public? or is the 1.00 build the only build you'll make public until the game is done?  I'd be a bit sad if it's just 1.00 but I'd completely understand, but I was just curious.

I do plan on updating the public builds but they will not be directly after the Patreon builds. For example, 1.01 will likely not be released as public until I’ve made a 1.05 build. Of course time might play into effect here but I’m still unsure when to update it. The public build will still get fixes as new art is added to the chapters that it has but for the most part I want there to be a bit more of a separation between the two builds.

Ah I see, makes sense; the separation thing, its only fair for your Patreon. Well then I hope things and updates go by smoothly with the time needed, can't wait to play the newest build when it comes out! Good luck and great job on his visual novel!

Is there a page where you can see a changelog of previous builds so you can see if there might be a piece of content you might be missing as you go along a story arc?

Are you referring to a guide of of the chapters and choices or what has been updated through each build? If it’s the prior then no, I have not personally made a guide. If it’s the later, the current public build 1.00 goes up to Chapter 7 for each character route and 1.01 goes up to Chapter 8 Koshiro

(2 edits) (+2)

This story is amazing and I really love Koshiro's character. I just can't force myself to not run away with him. So I have stopped playing his story line lol. I love this story so much, Thank you!!!!!

Is it possible to run away with Koshiro? Before update you were able to run away with him but now I can't do ıt. Can someone explain,pls?

(+2)

Quote from Hiddenwall himself:

That choice now leads to a separate path that isn’t yet finished so I have blocked it off for now. It will be available again in the future. 

Oh,ı see. Thx 

(+2)

Wah, I got sooo into it, especially Koshiro path, love the story! Wanted to buy the Patreon version but EU regulations don't let me due to my localisation or sth blah blah >>

Anyway, please keep up the good work Hiddenwall!

(+1)

I love this story so much Hiddenwall! Thank you for making this!!!

(+1)

Thank you for playing! Glad you are enjoying it 😁

Whats the major differences for 1.0, 1.01, and 1.4? Unless im deeply confused, 1.01 you have to pay for but 1.4 is open and public on patreon it seems.

But 1.4 is months old and 1.01 was just updated?


Whats actually newer or the more up to date one?

1.00 is 1.04, renamed. These are free public builds. Use 1.00 as it contains additional content.

1.01 is the up to date Patreon build which has the additional Chapter 8 for Koshiros path.

(1 edit)

Thanks!

Hey, not to throw shade on you being a literature god or anything, but do you also do some form of straight up fiction writing on the side, outside of being a game on FA or fanficiton, etc?

I only ask since game development is generally slow and if you're an ideas man, it would be super cool to have a side writing project you can pump out on slow dev days. Maybe like a prequel story for the game characters, childhood and origin stories and such.

I mean, I doubt you could glean all life information from that stone wall of a fox, Koshiro, in game at least.

(+2)

Sadly I don’t write much else other than besides this game. If I did it would make the development times even longer as I’m a one man team who does the planning, coding, and writing. The only thing I don’t do for the game is the character art.

As for prequel and origin stories, stick around long enough and you might just see more about the other characters backgrounds like I did with Koshiro in this latest chapter 😉

Is there a walkthrough??

Ones that I have made no. If there is any out there that someone has made I’m not really sure to be honest. Possibly.

please help out!! i keep extracting the file but it keeps having an error extracting file "archive" and idk why but no matter how many times i re tries, it still had the same error. and also when i skip the file it opens up a window they says a ren py game or something but it goes away too fast for me to screenshot it.then this window in the image pops up. Please help me here! im gonna try to re download though, for the third time.

If you're still having this issue. Please name all the steps you do for this to occur.

i download the file, extract it, but it gets an error when its extracting near the end at about 98-99 percent, says it can't extract the file "archive" (image)  and if i keep retrying, it keeps getting that error, so i just chose to skip the file but then it does that when i try to open the game. 

It's most likely the way you're extracting it. I recognize that error. 

Extract it by going into the zip file, right clicking and press "Extract all" and just let it extract wherever, then it should extract everything. If you want to move it you can do it after you've extracted it that way.

alrighty thx. i'll try

soooooo it didn't work....the past two times I've retried... re download, re try, etc... dunno why this keeps happening

(1 edit)

ive tried extracting it in a new folder by itself, extracting it where it was on the desktop,where it appears in the download folder and just.on my desktop like normal, but im still getting the same error where it cant extract the archive folder and i cant play it if i skip that folderand no matter how many times i re try to extract it, re download and wait an hour, its still not working... at this point im debating if i should really put in the effort in trying to fix this or just wait for the new build which honestly, i really dont wanna have to do,so if you or anyone else that actually reads this can help,please help me out on this. thx

a new update, say less

Is this android build the most recent?

(+1)

I do enjoy this game a lot, Koshiro is my favorite.


My only issues are that in the Android build the words in the intro run together, and when playing the game the words run off the dialogue box. 

I took screenshots if needed, but I don't wanna bog down your comment section with pictures if I can help it.

Hi, I already know about the intro scene but unfortunately I can't do  very much to fix it or any other issues that you come across with the android build. I programmed the game for pc and mac first with android as an afterthought. The other issue is that I also can't test it myself as I don't own an android phone and the only other option I can use is a built in mode for renpy to play the game as a phone build but that doesn't really work well. =(

Fair enough. I just try not to play graphic nsfw games on my computer. I'm an adult, but I do live with my parents (who know what I play but would rather not see it) . That can get awkward as you can imagine.


If you're interested in fixing the Android build (no pressure since it's an afterthought), there are emulators for both PC and Mac. https://www.androidauthority.com/best-android-emulators-for-pc-655308/

I have tried those ones actually, I don't normally test the android builds when I run it on memu it seems to work without any problems. 

Okay. No biggie. It's not game breaking or anything.

Why are there 2 android download link?

One of them didn't seem to work for others so I uploaded another build. I just didn't take down the old one.

(+2)

Help me please!

I played the new version at least a good ten hours between yesterday and now and I have a hard time when it comes to choosing between "runaway with koshiro" and "stay in the village" because the leak is barred no matter the choices that I do in the way of Koshiro.
It's normal? Because in the previous version I had a choice.
If it is a walkthrough question tell me which one for those who have to find for the ignorant that I am please.

(+1)

That choice now leads to a separate path that isn’t yet finished so I have blocked it off for now. It will be available again in the future.

Android build won't install

Edit 1.00 universal works.

Same here too. Did you guys find some solutions?

New version works

RAMOS IS MY FAVORITE

What happened to Android build

i have a question when will be the next update?

Wrote this on another site about your game and wanted to give my opinions here.

So one pet peeve of mine in visual novels is romance is never romance but they fall short to become a replacement for XXX fap material. This game is amazing in that 90% of it isn't about the finish but the build up (No pun intended) From the slow start you meet the characters to the farthest currently possible It reels you in with a story as old as time but allows such flexibility in how you present yourself you really do feel the emotions your character brings to the table. From escaping thieves/assassins to having a small casual conversation with characters that while choices may be limited never cease to amaze me in how important they feel. This game is a representation to what it means to be anything from a game designer to the romance reader who wants to feel the swirling emotion of heartache, heartbreak, and heart filling. Minor Spoilers below so I recommend playing it first at least the first chapter.

The introduction really captivated me as I felt I identified with the character immediately. A child escaping an overbearing parent to do things they deem dangerous but are important to develop who you are while also trying to force a blend with those he has no interest in his well-being. You see the dangers of royalty as well as the care others who are like family went through to protect and how much they will sacrifice to protect him. You can see immediately a character that most could be attracted to without making some weird stereotype. From the brutish rhino who is quite honest in his morals and doesn't worry about what others think, to those who see duty honor and justice as the only factor in the heart that matters, to a mysterious fox forced to hide himself for the greater good never realizing who he really is. IF you don't mind some scenes of the variety of XXX I recommend this game as so far I've seen only 3 replaying the game 3x with 10 hours of game-play each but love a good romance novel that can capture those feelings they want you to feel. 1000% this game is definitely worth at least a try.

Why is  Every character blacked out

Love it Keep up the great and amazing work! Leandros is the best!!!

(+2)

What can I say?!?!? This game is a pure masterpiece! Not only the visuals which are so catching but also the plot and the background of every single character are so we'll arranged that I can't stop playing :3

(+3)

Just finished two of the three routes lets just say its a very suspenseful novel very emotional too! Leondros had me flustered, Koshiro (my favorite personally) had me squealing like a high school fan girl or something he's so sweet like i cant wait for more of him. The mysterious side of him is pretty damn hot if i may say so myself but what a journey so far. I love VNs like this that has a story and makes you feel like your on an adventure yourself with the MC's. To the author and artist wherever you are absolutely awesome work I really do we get to see more soon after your done dealing with real life issues.

(+2)

Ive just created an account to say that this is amazing vn!

I really enjoyed playing it and looking forward to future updates❤️❤️❤️

Since a few people seem to have commented im just going to post the last patreon post here, anyone can look at it for free on hiddenwalls patreon.

Status Update

Alright, so I’ve been seeing a lot of comments floating around about the status of the project and wanted to clear some things up so not to leave you all in suspense waiting and wondering when the next build will be. For reasons I will not go to in depth about, this has been a bit of a hectic year. Some of it financially, some of it mentally, some of it simply based on how much time I even have to dedicate working on the game. This becomes especially true for me with the start of the holiday season around the end of October  as I work in retail. What this means is that I pretty much haven’t touched the game since around the end of October. It’s a thing that just happens during this time of year where I become busy and even more tired and unmotivated to write or work thus leading to procrastination and lethargy.

Now there is no need to get too worried. I’m not going anywhere, I’m not canceling the game but I am taking a short break from it. If anything it’s more like a hiatus though one that In actuality started all the way back in October. For those looking forward to the next update I’m sorry to keep you all waiting for so long. I plan to continue working on the game here and there in my spare time of course but as for really focusing on getting this next build out there, I won’t be dedicating my free time until at least February and hopefully from there getting the build out by March. If things change I might get it out sooner or hopefully not later but for now there is a time to expect an update.

I thank you all for your support and comments. once I’ve gotten into a more stable position I’ll be right back to getting updates back out there. I can assure this next one will be completely different from the others I haven’t written thus far.

I want more.

But take your time and rest if you need it, I wait.

Please fix the MC dream CG sex scene with Leon's Route, kinda dissapoint about the art kinda different

(+1)(-2)

Did this project get ditched? Did I miss the memo or....

(+2)

He said that he's been having IRL issues recently, however the project is NOT being canceled or ditched, he said that he will work on it during his spare time so as of now it will take a lot longer than before; for the newest update to be released.

Thanks! :D Wasn't sure what was going on, I really love this VN, and was hoping more would come from it, I understand that life kinda... throws a wrench in things though, but it's good to hear that it's still going through :D

Would be nice if it was possible to hide the textbooks if one wanted a full screen to admire the artwork.

'H' key to hide the hud in renpy games, so you can admire them

(+1)

I'm on android and keyboard is hidden until it have to be used. Like with MC name. So I don't think it's possible on Android cellphone, unless a physical keyboard is connected, but I don't have any.  

Thanks anyway 👍

Soon I'll get a Windows Surface or a 2 in 1 pc. I want to read / play on sofa or in bed. That's not practical with a large desktop 😜

Is the android version of the game up to date?
