About Forsythia Productions

About Us

Forsythia Productions is a small indie dev team led by ingthing and akaparalian. We’re dedicated to putting positive storytelling, queer narratives, and a little bit of extra whimsy into the world!

While our current focus is a visual novel, we look forward to creating a variety of narrative experiences in the future. We're currently hard at work on our debut project, Of Sense and Soul.

Of Sense and Soul

Of Sense and Soul
is a slice of life historical gay romance visual novel set in 1875 London. The story is driven by the character development of our two protagonists — Hugo Brooks, an editorialist, and Seamus Charkham, a gentleman of leisure. Through the incalculable impact they have on one another’s lives, and through the blossoming romance that brings them ever closer together, each of them is able to grow and change in ways they never would have thought possible…

Facts & Questions

Why Patreon?

Our dreams for our projects are fairly ambitious and given that most of our team isn't doing this full time, a month by month production schedule is the best way for us to make sustained progress towards completion. With your help, we'll know exactly how many background and music assets we can commission in a month and plan accordingly!
If we can attain our optimal monthly funding and produce assets consistently, we’ll be able to do even more—check our current goals for more!

Please note that our Patreon is set to charge up front--see the header "How will I be charged?" below for more information.

What do you offer?

As most of our efforts will be concentrated on producing Of Sense and Soul, our tier rewards are focused on dev updates, previews of in-progress art, music, and writing, and community input on game elements via polls. We also host weekly Studio streams where you can chat with the devs and see art in progress.

You can see our most up-to-date Patreon Calendar here.

Bouquet, Wreath, and Centrepiece tier patrons have access to special customisable rewards with poem names, easter eggs, and background characters to be featured in Of Sense and SoulSee our customisable reward guidelines here.

How will I be charged?

Our Patreon is set to charge up front, so you will be charged upon joining and then again at the beginning of the next month.

You will have access to all our previous posts (unless they're time sensitive, such as expired special offers) upon joining, but we'd encourage you to join at the beginning of the month rather than at the end of it so that you can benefit from your first month's worth of rewards when they come out.

I would love to help but can't afford a recurring payment. How else can I contribute?

There's lots you can do to help us out! You can follow OSAS on TwitterInstagramFacebookTumblr, or, or share our work with your friends, or join our Discord server, or read our blog posts on our website... The list goes on!

If you would like to make a one time donation to us, you can either send Ingrid a Ko-fi donation which will go straight into the production of our demo, or send us a donation via our

Thank you for your interest in supporting us and our game!
