A downloadable game for Windows

It's Hayley Nakamura's last day on set as the star of the magical girl anime Astro-Navigator Nebula and Hayley finds herself trapped INSIDE her own show! 

Puppeted by a mysterious villainess trying to force Hayley to act like her sweet, positive counterpart Elara, Hayley is decidedly NOT feeling sweet OR positive about being trapped in this Truman Show-esque gauntlet! But hey - having actual magical powers is a little fun. ;) 

Play as Hayley and fight your way out of this twisted set with the help of your companion Lime Hawk and your galaxy-themed powers! 

But don't forget to… Smile for the cameras!

The worldview is very elaborate and I love it! I also really liked how the characters were sculpted and the fluttery parts of their multi-layered dresses were beautifully rendered in 3D rather than textured! The magic effects were also nice and sparkling, but on my PC (GTX1660) it was quite heavy and I couldn't play to the end.

But it was really good and I will support your future productions!
