LUNARiA - Virtualized Moonchild 2

A self-proclaimed learning companion AI that was supposed to be the mascot of the lunar solar power project “Project Serene” …….
She lives alone in “Lunar World,” a corner of the lunar server.
She has an energetic and vivacious personality, but she is not very good at grasping a sense of distance from others and is strangely familiar with them.
Since she has been alone for a long time, she is very curious about everything.
Her hobby is watching live video games.

Key/Visual Arts is a team that needs no introduction: they are industry veterans with 20 years of experience responsible for many beloved works such as Kanon and CLANNAD. Originally released in 2021, Lunaria is one of their more recent projects. Lunaria is a kinetic novel, that is, it does not feature branching paths, focused around a virtual reality world, with characters alternating between a ‘Virtual’ (in-game avatar) self and a ‘Real’ self (flesh and blood).
