indie games by Whiona
This site is a WIP!
Opal Starlight is a one-woman indie game studio that produces narrative-driven romances in fantastical settings.
My goal is to create memorable characters, bold and colourful original artwork, and atmospheric worlds that feel real. My games are also LGBTQ-inclusive, because every player deserves to feel those warm fuzzies! Right now, I am mainly focusing on Visual Novels and Adventure Games.

Q: When will [game] be released?
A: If there’s no release date listed either here or on itch.io, then I haven’t decided yet. I can give you my best guess, but those have a history of being wrong, so we’ll just say…TBD!
Q: Do you have any updates on [game]?
A: To get updates on my games, you can follow my Twitter or join my Discord server!
Q: Can I translate your game into another language?
A: Absolutely! Please let me know if you do – I would love to share the translation with my players!
Q: Who is doing the art for the game? / Did you make the tiles? / Any other question about whether or not I made an asset.
A: Some assets are by me (character artwork always is), but others are not. Please consult the each game’s credits for a full list of who made what. You’re welcome to ask me who made a specific asset, but if you’re just wondering whether I handled a certain category of the assets myself, then the answer should be there for you in the credits!
Four Eyes FAQ
Q: Will you make a Mac compatible version of Four Eyes?
Unfortunately, no. RPG Maker VX Ace projects are not Mac compatible, and I’ve chosen not to switch to RPG Maker MV yet for a variety of reasons.
The good news is that there are workarounds out there to get VX Ace games to run on Mac. Maybe this tutorial will work, but as I’m a Windows user, I haven’t personally tested it. If it doesn’t, it seems like there are other solutions if you Google around.
Q: What’s the solution to this puzzle/how do I get the secret ending?
A: On itch.io, there is a PDF walkthrough available for download with all the answers. :)
Q: Can I port Four Eyes to RPG Maker MV for you?
No. I don’t want anyone porting my games to other engines without my direct oversight and involvement, and I’d rather spend all that time and energy on my new projects instead!
