A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

GRAND!! Chapter One Is an English BL Visual Romance Novel that is being developed by JKUStudio. We are currently running a Kickstarter campaign and have just released our first Demo! So check it out and let us know what you think!

Have fun!

Elijah Grand has just started his first year of college and he’s about to experience “real” life for the very first time. But there’s one big problem, he can’t stop seeing himself as his avatar! Now it’s up to his two best friends Lucien and Sebastian to get him up and out of his room and into the world!

And the only way for them to do that is? A makeover! So que the 90s montage music, because Elijah is about to have the ride of his life!!

But will this help him or hurt him?

Let’s find out!

College is a place where you learn so much about yourself. You have a lot of things that become your firsts; first love, first heartbreak, and your first taste of the “real world.”

Help Elijah as he stumbles his way through his first year of college and help him decide on which “firsts” he should try. Is it going to be the kind, sincere and romantic “Gio” or the overly sexual, snobby, but secretly nerdy “Kai”?

Join Elijah as he attempts to find out exactly what it is he likes in life and in men, all while taking on the big bad world!

I noticed that your kickstarter campaign failed, since the "due" date was July 15.... are you guys still working on it or...?

I really enjoyed playing this and I really hope to see more from the development of this game!
