For Valerie’s senior project, she wants to make a composition that touches the heart of everyone who listens to it. However, no matter how hard the gifted musician tries, the notes just don’t sound right. There’s something missing and with time ticking, she goes searching for the missing piece to her composition.
As Valerie wanders the halls, she becomes overwhelmed by a beautiful melody playing from a nearby classroom. Not knowing what to expect, she comes across Cadence, the most talented pianist she’s ever heard. Valerie knows immediately, Cadence is the missing piece.Steam

Cadence is a talented pianist but has lost her love for playing the piano. After numerous competitions and performances, she’s forgotten what drove her to start playing.
Valerie is studying music composition and wants to create a beautiful piece that expresses sorrow, heartbreak, and pain. Finding the right performer to channel the emotions is what she needs to not only pass her senior year but to make a piece that everyone in attendance will remember.
While Cadence and Valerie are the main duet, Opal, Quinley, and Xavier are there to support their love and music aspirations.
Opal is a recent grad who enjoys tormenting her brother Xavier.
Xavier is Opal’s brother and is somehow still able to afford college despite supporting 20 waifus in a gacha mobile game.
Quinley is a college dropout who is literally too cool for school.
