Scott Gambino is not the brightest crayon in the box. He's somehow managed to fail all his classes with a negative number, he's never gotten a girlfriend, and he still can't match up his heroic older brother, Lucas. He's a good-for-nothing idiot of a nerd who freaks out at the mere mention of magic--courtesy of his little sisters.
His life only takes a turn for a worser fate once he steals a doll from a mysterious store for his sister's birthday. Everywhere he goes, the doll somehow ends up in his possession--be it in his locker or even in his own arms.
If that isn't strange enough, Scott soon finds out that the doll is actually a trapped girl by the name of Pandora. It's suddenly up to him and a quiet girl named Renee (or at least, according to Merlin and his apprentice, Sierra), to find Pandora's box and return what has been lost before it's too late.
The idiotic and unlikely hero of his story. He's part of a large family where he gets hardly any recognition, which prompts him to always strive to do his best, even though it might not really be the best. After having stolen Pandora from a mysterious store, he became marked as a Chosen and learned of the world of Arcadia. He's been recruited by Merlin to conserve the peace of the real world and Arcadia with Renee, as well as to find Pandora's missing box on the side. He's an 8th grader at St. Olympic Middle School and enjoys playing hockey.
A fiery redhead with a chilling personality, Renee's the heroine of her story. She's at the top of her class and is considered to be the dangerous and demon-possessed rebel of her school, even though she wouldn't agree to it. She met Scott at the mysterious store and was also marked as a Chosen. She's been recruited by Merlin to conserve the peace of the real world and Arcadia with Scott, as well as to find Pandora's missing box on the side--though she isn't particularly fond of this task. She's an 8th grader at Blessed Trinity Middle School.
Pandora is a doll that was stolen from a mysterious store to be given to Jenna Gambino as a birthday present. She marked Renee and Scott as Chosen, hoping they'd be able to help her find her missing box. She tends to prefer Scott's company--anyone else who's in possession of her becomes cursed until they give her up. She's incapable of speaking as a doll. Nothing else is known about her.

I figured I might as well announce it while it's fresh. This idea has been swimming in my mind since the beginning of summer 2011, and I've decided it's about time to make it happen.
The pre-production stuff has yet to be completed. I'm hoping to have at least the first chapter done by the end of 2012, but at the same time, I'm not rushing this project too much. Quality comes first, after all.
Currently, the character designs and OST are underway, as well as the script for the first chapter. I'll be releasing this VN as chapters rather than altogether, to prevent my staff (and myself) from getting overwhelmed.
This visual novel will be fully voice-acted. You have no idea how anxious I've been to go scout VAs and set up a cast for this already. But, I know scouting ahead of time will bite me in the behind later, so I'm...mostly withdrawing from it. Pre-production comes first.
Despite that setback, however, I'm looking forward to scouting for this project. I already have some VAs in mind for some characters, so hopefully, this whole process will go smoothly. <3
Look forward to more updates!
