- Will there be NSFW in this game? : It has nudity so far, but yes, there will be more explicit NSFW content in the future.

- When will we receive an update? : Right now, we have a bi-monthly update, wich means, a new update each 2 months, being one month to premier on patreon, and the next month on public, and so on! we do have a patreon goal to go back to being a monthly update, with your help it can be possible!

- A reason why saves don't work properly once there's a new update?: First of all, remember above all things that this project is still a work in progress , and we often find ourselves going back and forth what we've done so far, fixing typos, animations, scenes, sprites, backgrounds, dialogues, etc... so , if you saved around any of those dialogues that have a major change in any of the above, your save might be compromised , ultimately throwing an error, we apologize for the inconveniences in advance and ask for your understanding! However, with our new implemented Chapter Selector, you can easily go back and forth throughout the vn, once you've read through those parts and unlocked them(if you haven't, a (????) name will show instead, until you've finished reading through that chapter's respective part.)

- I don't like the characters genitals, can you change them? : First of all, this question, or commenting about this makes us really uncomfortable, so we kindly ask for you to refrain from adressing this. As for now, we currently have a SFW filter that changes the genitals of our characters to fluffynes, making them more sfw-ish for those uncomfortable with NSFW, however, I have plans on making and adding genitals options, so you can choose wichever you prefer! but that won't be until a far future, so as for now the sprites stay as they are, because this is NOT by any means a sexual preference , but rather their characters and what they have gone through in their lives, so please try to understand and be patient about it.

I fell in love with this novel...


I love Mothoc


"The scent of fresh coffee fills you with determination."

Thought this little reference was cute, whether is was intentional or not :]



(1 edit) (+4)

- spoilers-



I'm... What the actual fuck is hapenning right now ? 

I mean, I loved the story, so many questions, a very mysterious story, a boyfriend that don't tell everything... A child, a mother, an abusive father. But monsters and magic powers AND MOTHOC??? Come on. This is too perfect :D

Even if i admit that i did not really understood the transition between "normal" and "paranormal shit", i loved it (I knew that there was going to be a paranormal side of the story, since the hand projection, it seemed obvious, but not that way, you understand ? I literally got terrified by the sound of the monsters, sended shivers down my spine :D).

 The characters arer VERY endearing, and i spent a really good time getting to know them. Especially Jenny, she's so funny i love her. Well, that aside, the story is catching. I wanna see the end but... I feel as confused as the protagonist. And that's a good thing, since i'm supposed to see the world through the protagonist's eyes, but this is one of the only -if not the only one- VN in which i couldn't anticipate the events, i can't see the beggining of what the end will look like, and that's rare. It's a compliment ! 

I also really liked the effort put in the music and the background, i also loved the "drawed scene" ? I don't know the exact term, but you see what i mean. 

Thank you, to all the team, for making such a great job at emerging people into your world. You did it very well, and i'll look forward the updates ! 

Thanks for reading :) 

Losh ~ 

I haven't finished reading the public build yet (so far, probably a rising star in FVN's), but I feel compelled to tell you that Wizards of the Coast is writing up a new Open Game License that MAY impact your revenue. 

thank you, I'm glad you're enjoying it! and thanks for the heads up, we'll look into it!


I did not expect things to go down like that...


Love the game but could you guys add a "most recent update" option for the chapter select? For convenience.


love the new cgs

Does it run well on the build 9 PC?

When I start, this screen pops up and I can't proceed.


Hey! It does work, but we are currently trying to fix this error page you've just sent, you can also just press "ignore" right there, and it should work just fine, but its not the idea that this error pops up so we'll fix it asap! please report these patreon build errors in our discord server on the patreon section, or in our patreon comments!

Bruh..... I swear the cliffhangers is going to kill me one of these days


I'm sorryyyyyyyyyyyy , it will happen again ;____;


HZE has some of the best sprite variations amongst furry VN's and xou're making them even better xD!? I applaude xour moxie~! :p I love how the story is developing and am eager to see how xou'll play this all out~ UwU Congratulations on hitting the 1ne year mark! \>_</


and even more to come ;D and thank you!!


Oh my god that cliffhanger at the end...... WHAT DA HELL HAPPENED I WANNA KNOW it's driving me crazyyyyyyyy !!!

That was to say the update was awesome and i can't wait for more !
This VN is soo good and only getting better and better !


Oh god I just noticed everyone in the page got birthday hats that's so fucking funny


Has been a year since I last played this game on its first day

Really happy that this game got an attention it needed

The art and story potential is pretty nice

Hope to see this game grow even bigger


thanks for playing our game! <3


Hmm new sprites :D looking good


A of the best VN I ever played


I forgot to put: Happy Pride month everyone!! 馃槂馃槂馃槂


i can actually relate a bit to thony' and kathy's life, when i was younger- 
(spoilies be warned)

me and my mother had to make do with what we had without my father, he isn't as physical as thony's dad but he was just as bad manipulatively. 

great vn so far hmhm, can't wait to see it all shine 


Yoo I'm sorry you had to go through that :C I hope everything got better! also care to send me a DM? telegram, twitter or discord, anything's fine! 


it's oki hmhm not your fault he was an ass, and i'm on your discord if you're wanting to dm me hmhm


I love how Chad's facial hair grows a bit as time passes, such a fun little detail!  


SPOILER (kind of ?)

I feel like Sentinel was a second father to Chad during those 10 years he can't seem to remember. After what happend when Chad and Fred got searated, maybe Sentinel took care of Chad for some time ? He's definitely connected to Chad since he seems to know him.

The last scene got me the impression that Terry (Chad's dad) was beating him...... I may be wrong but i could see some sings that maybe it was the case... If Chad has PTSD when he sees a metal bar on an empty hand then that's a solid clue for me. Along with Terry's demeanor during the flash back.

Anyway, lots of mysteries and unanswered questions, i loved this update and am looking foward for the next one !


New update was amazing, so much content, loved it 


Contender for best update I feel.


Pants-less Fridays!!! 馃槂馃槂馃槂

So, i only discovered HZE yesterday (dunno why i've never seen it before. I might be blind 馃槄). I went through a roller coaster of emotions while reading it and i can't wait for more to be revealed after that cliffhanger. This VN is a masterpiece.


I'm trying to get other people to play this, It deserves more attention. 馃槂馃槂馃槂
