And we've passed $500! Thank you for those that have backed us!

One comment we caught through one of our postings that we'd like to address is whether or not this is a "dating sim".

While Dust and Air shares a romantic sub plot where you can determine the outcome of the relationship, it is a different beast. The story and world takes a bit more focus. You aren't managing stats or figuring out correct answers.

The primary goal of the main protagonist isn't to hook up. In Dust and Air it is more to survive in the world of Guns of Icarus. The story leads, the romantic sub plot flows within, you decide the ending.

Katawa Shoujo, If My Heart Had Wings, Clannad...there's quite a few fantastic VNs with a similar style. They were, in fact, great inspirations to us. However, the one major difference being, the overall scope.

Dust and Air encompasses 6 nation factions + independent cities, those other VNs stick more to a local school or city. Not that they are bad for doing that, in fact we're big fans of those VNs (Hanako Forever!). Just we considered the Guns world and figured, settling with just one city is rather boring isn't it? Given airships and some of the rich factions to see. There was too much potential that would be untapped and lost if we settled with one.

Hope that clears that up.
