A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"It all started five years ago..."

On the same fateful night, King Lio of Rosaria and Queen Corette of Cepher disappeared. King Lio supposedly fled his country, afraid of the civil war it was fighting and afraid of getting caught in the middle. On the other hand, Queen Corette was murdered, leaving her husband King Arden and the rest of Cepher to search for the elusive culprit.

Lucetta, the main character, is a girl of noble birth from Rosaria. Very much like her king, she unwillingly fled her country in order to escape the war and now stays under Cepher's protection. Over the years she has devoted her free time to looking into both incidents, especially anything regarding the disappearance of her king. After five years of staying in the foreign kingdom, she has decided that she must return home to investigate King Lio's case. With all of the other preparations in order, the last thing she needs to do is come in contact with King Arden and get his approval to move out of Cepher.

There is one problem, however: he plans to accuse her of killing his queen.


Corvus: The lieutenant of Cepher's army, famous for his eyepatch exceptional skill as a swordsman and ardent devotion for his king. For some reason, he hates Volos to a severe degree.

Volos: The leader of Serpens, the thieves guild of Cepher. Easygoing and a bit foolish, he was one of Lucetta's first friends upon her arrival to Cepher. Allegedly, he stole something from Corvus, resulting in the other's contempt towards him.

Juna: A member of the Tigris Guild, responsible for foreign affairs. Soft spoken and tends to hide things. He is one of Corvus' acquaintances.

Arlo: A Rosarian knight who serves as Lucetta's personal guard. Not much else is known about him.

Arden: The King of Cepher. He has been looking into Corette's murder for the past five years. He knows Lucetta from when he would visit Rosaria.

Install instructions

If the MediaFire file doesn't download right away, it's most likely because Chrome sees it as malicious and blocks it as a pop-up. Make sure you allow pop-ups from this site for the link to work.

Any updates? :)

Hello! Any updates for the game will be on its devlog or on my tumblr. Thank you!

It's not downloading for some reason?? Can you please help?

Is there an error message like "sorry you can't download this" or is it just that nothing happens when you click the download button?

If nothing's happening, then google chrome thinks that it's a popup and will try to block it. If there's an error message, then please tell me what it says so I can see what's going on

It just doesn't download, how can I fix it??

Does clicking the download button do anything? As in, does it say the "thank you for downloading" message when nothing happened? Because the download button is a link to the mediafire download, it should open a new tab in mediafire. If that isn't happening when you click it, your web browser is most likely trying to block that, treating it as a pop-up.

If you can access mediafire but it won't download the file, there should be a "Repair your download" option on the page.

I'll provide the mediafire link in this reply so that you can copy and paste it into your web browser if it's just the pop-up stuff that's preventing you from downloading it: http://www.mediafire.com/file/vvzb0omseagmxnu/MOLR-1.1-all.zip

Thank you!!!

i love the art! (squeals) omg im already attached to it ;-;


aaaa it makes me really happy that someone likes the game and the artttt

i hope that you'll get even more attached to it once the full game is released ohoho

wieee :3

Oh it looks so cool! Yet for some reason I can't download it..

Is there an error message that appears when you try to download it? Chrome will see it as a popup and probably try to block it, I'm guessing that's what happened. If you're using Chrome, something like "popup blocked" will show at the right side of the search bar. Click on it to change popup settings for the page so you can get to the mediafire download. I'm guessing that you would have to do the same if you were using another browser, but anyway...

If it's a different error message about downloading it, please tell me!

Hello! When full version could be expected? :)

Hello hello! There's no set date for completion yet, but I do hope to finish it within the next year or so. Thank you for your patience!

Please contact me when it would be finished - I'll be waiting for news :)
