Isis Black, your average American teenager, happens upon a part time job opening at Café Rouge. During the day, it is your normal quaint cafe and bakery. When night takes over, it is transformed into a five star restaurant theater cafe, with live stage performances and first class customers coming in the middle of the night.
As Isis delves deeper into this strange cafe, she becomes tangled in the mystery of its haunted world. Will she find friends or foe? Will she follow fate or make her own destiny? Will she find love?
That's for you to decide...


Features:
+ Complex, branching storyline
+ Change the protagonists main name
+ Original GUI
+ Original OST
+ FREE (Earn 1 point by sharing on social media PER DAY)
+ Pay $5.00 for 1000 points immediately.


Hello everybody! I'm so so excited to tell you guys that Café Rouge is coming back, on CloudNovel, as CloudNovel's first commercial game! That means it will only be available online on the web and on mobile devices, with in game purchases (there will be no download for PC or Mac). To play the full 8+ hour long game, it'll only cost $5.00 to purchase 1000 cloudnovel points OR you can earn points for free per day by sharing Cafe Rouge's official cloudnovel play page on your social media (twitter, reddit, etc)! The only thing different is the brand new character art (and slightly rewritten story to fix all plot holes, THE MYSTERY WILL BE REVEALED FINALLY)!!! The artist who is doing the art for Cafe Rouge has worked for Rejet (creator of Diabolik Lovers) and Otomate (PlayStation 4, PlayStation vita, and PC otome games company in Japan)

For those interested, or who don't know Diabolik Lovers or Otomate, they are very popular brand name otome games in Japan. I am PRETTY sure if you are an avid otome games fan, you heard of them.

So for those who don't know Cafe Rouge, it is an online flash game created back in 2012. I created it back when I was 18 years old, and it grew viral with 1.6 million plays. The video trailer with original 2012 game is below. I didn't finish telling the story because I grew bored of it back then, but now I'm ready to remake Cafe Rouge on CloudNovel, fix all the plotholes by rewriting the story (most of it will be the same) and use brand new art from artists who've worked on professional otome games from Japan. This will be CloudNovel's first commercial game with in game purchases of 1-5 points cost per choice button. What i'm going to do is make Cafe Rouge up till chapter 3 FREE as a demo, and after chapter 3 it'll cost you points to continue playing the game. Don't worry, if you can't spend money YOU CAN EARN POINTS FOR FREE. A new feature coming soon to CloudNovel is earning free points by sharing cloudnovel visual novels on social media. You will earn 1 point per day for sharing a visual novel on your twitter, reddit, etc. (That point earned can only be used as in game purchases on the visual novel you shared).
Here is my progress:

It’s final, the artist and I decided Valen is going to have pink hair. We tried blonde and brown, neither looked as good as pink.

yep Valen has pink hair, *throws Valen to mono*
