Ace in Space is finally here!
It’s been 1 year, 8 months, and 22 days since we decided to make Jon’s (unfinished) short story “Leaving Earth” into a visual novel/dating sim. At times it honestly felt like we’d never get to this point, but somehow here we are!
We’re incredibly grateful for all of the support we’ve received from family, friends, and the lovely folks on the internet! We hope you all will be just as enthusiastic about our future projects as you have been with this one!
We have plans to add a few accessibility features as well as some additional content (free!), so stay tuned for more information on that and other projects. In the meantime, we look forward to hearing what you all think of the game!
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out!

To celebrate, we’ve launched our Ace in Space discord server! Feel free to join and chat with us! https://discord.gg/R3fj7bE
We’ve officially teamed up with an incredible local composer who is going to be doing the soundtrack for Ace in Space! Because of this, our plan for an October release isn’t viable anymore.
So, we’ve decided that Valentine’s Day would be perfect and will also give our composer plenty of time to create some amazing tracks for the game!
So sorry for any inconvenience, but it’s going to be 100% worth the extra few months! 💜
We are going to be at Tsukino Con (Feb 22-24) to advertise Ace in Space! We'll have prints and other goodies to check out, so please come and say hi!
Before anyone asks about it, we are aware that our Instagram has been disabled for some reason. We are working to get it back online!
