Zen Studios are creating visual novels and otome games

patrons



The Zen Studios are two game dev studios dedicated to creating otome visual novels and story driven games. The studio is run, and solely populated, by me, Valhalla. 
I aim to create visual novels that have unique ideas Incorporated into the tried and tested, creating new experiences in the visual novel market.

Warning: This Patreon charges up-front for the first payment. Please read this page for more information.



Making a visual novel isn't a cheap experience, especially when you can't draw or make music to save your life, and going at it alone can sometime be daunting.
For the last couple of years I have been paying out of pocket to make the games I truely want to make. While there is nothing that will keep me from pursuing the creation of my visual novels, I also can't deny that their are times the financial strain is a source of worry for me. Yet with your help, no matter how little, that strain can be lifted slightly, and I will be able to pour more of my love and attention to making the best final products I'm able to.




[Otome][Kemonomimi][18+ Situations]
[Commercial]
As a child, Kamilla was sold by her family to House Bathos, one of the courtesan houses within the Palace of Evain. Under the guidance of the head of the house, Lady Bathos, she was trained in all the artistic and social skills a courtesan is expected to wield. Now as one of the most successful palace courtesans, Kamilla lives her days peacefully.

But the king is dying and the lords and ladies are in an uproar. Rumour and scandal run rife within the palace walls, and the threat of war from neighbouring kingdoms has everyone on edge. Within House Bathos, however, trivial concerns seem much more prevalent, as the courtesans scramble to be the top-earners and pay their way to freedom.

And Kamilla has her own troubles, not only within her house, but also at the hands of the palace staff, and even from royalty.

Selfish has five romance options, each with a good and bad end.





  • Access to patron only channels on the Zen Studios  discord channel.
Anyone can join the discord server and chat with us, but only our patrons get access to the patron only channels! I’m not saying you’ll be treated like royalty… but you will.

  • Access to devlogs exclusive to Patreon
I’ll be releasing formal progress updates on the first week of every month on  TumblrFacebook and my website, but for our patrons I’ll be doing more casual devblogs more frequently.
To receive the formal progress updates I recommend joining my mailing list from my website

I’ll add your patron username to the patron page on my website. Your name will also be added to any games that come out provided you are still a patron at the time of release. Please feel free to contact me if you would prefer not to have your name added, or if you'd like me to link to your website or work from that page.

  • First look at upcoming projects
Before I post about it anywhere else I’ll post the introduction posts for my next games here on patron at least a week before releasing to the public.



  • Exclusive previews of art and music.
You will always be the first to see any new art and listen to any new music prior to everyone else. This will include some concept sketches and bits of the design process.

  • Official and complete game walk-throughs
I will upload a walk-through of the game detailing which choices to make to get each ending, and how to get 100% completion. If you don’t want to spoil the experience, I will also include a spoiler-free tips sections to help you out if you get stuck.



  • Access to lore and world-building information
Once a month I will go into more depth regarding the world in which my games take place and talk about certain aspects of the culture, time period or pretty much anything you can think of. If there is enough interest I will combine it with the Q+A and stream to answer questions live.

  • Access to exclusive short prose.
Once every couple of months I’ll write some short prose including characters from the games I’m working on, filling in backstory or events that happen outside the timeline of the game.



  • Early access to any extended stories and fan disks.
Sometimes when a game is made and released there is still more story I want to tell. Should there come a time when I release short stories or fan disks you will receive special early access to these.

  • Final release of completed games.
For those supporting at this level at the time of a games release I will offer the completed games for free.



  • Access to the beta version of the game.
Prior to final release, while still in the beta testing stage you will be able to download the game. This will be a buggy version of the game, but you will be under no obligation to report bugs.

  • Early final release of completed games.
For those supporting at this level at the time of a games release I will offer the completed games for free a week earlier than anyone else will receive.
