Synopsis:
Dysfunctional Systems is an episodic visual novel chronicling the life of Winter Harrison. Having long become comfortable with her utopian society, Winter is surprised to learn that there are other worlds in other planes of existence.

She is chosen to become a “mediator”, charged with the maintenance of order in these chaotic planes, and so enters a vocational school for training. Episode 1 details her second shadowing of a seasoned mediator, only a few weeks into her first year. She and her mentor enter a world seemingly much like their own, except for this issue of “poverty” with which Winter has difficulty understanding…

Every time you upload an artwork, it's even better than the previous one. You are really improving your skill, no doubt about that! :-) The details are marvelous and those red "elements"... reminds me of Mirror's Edge, somehow ;-)
Happy to hear about a new visual novel from Dischan. Looks promising :-)

Sounds cool.

Wow, I sound so apathetic ;_; but seriously, I watched the video and it looks really nice! I just can't think of words at the moment. Oh, and great illustration, I like the detail in the cityscape.
