A UsefulNotes/RenPy-based VisualNovel released in English by Creator/HanakoGames in 2010. Take a sprinkling of OtomeGame, a dash of SpeculativeFiction, a lot of sneaky references to a [[TheRockyHorrorPictureShow certain movie]] - and serve over a bed of plot twists that make it hard to describe anything much about the story without giving too much away.

* RedEyesTakeWarning - Mostly averted with Bradley. Although he seems like he plays this trope straight at first because upon entering the mansion, he [[spoiler: threatens everyone with a gun]] since he thinks they all did something to his [[spoiler: sister.]] The aversion occurs because after he's neutralized, he never does anything else wrong and that [[spoiler: gun]] pays off in one of the endings.

* AlternateUniverse - Janet discovers that she and Bradley are in an alternate universe where UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution never happened, and the country is called Atlanta. [[spoiler:However, it isn't quite that simple.]]

* [[spoiler:HalfIdenticalTwins - Alben and Bianca, who [[PolarOppositeTwins couldn't be more different]].]]
* HeroicSacrifice - [[spoiler:Rafael in one of the endings.]] This does ''not'' lead to a happy ending for everyone else. The theme of what's worth sacrificing comes up multiple times.

* InsufferableGenius - Janet used to be one of these, and it came very close to screwing her over. In the backstory we learn at the start of the game, Janet's classmates previously bullied her because of her Genius. Because of that, Janet wouldn't join any extracurricular activities with the girls, which is understandable. The "Insufferable" part came into play because Janet ended up not joining any extracurricular activities with ''anyone'', and she forgot that the college she was applying to strongly ''prefers'' girls with lots of social experience on their applications, so Janet almost didn't make it into college as a result.

* OptionalSexualEncounter - [[spoiler: With Linds. With the other boys, it doesn't really go beyond kissing.]]
* PanUpToTheSkyEnding - The true ending.
* ParentalAbandonment - A rare ''justified'' example! [[spoiler: Rafael's]] parents abandoned him...but only so he could have better access to health care than his parents were capable of providing. In fact, when Janet criticizes [[spoiler: Rafael's]] parents' abandonment, [[spoiler: Rafael]] responds in bitterness, but unlike usual examples of this trope the bitterness is ''in their defense'', saying he's sorry they weren't perfect.

*** WordOfGod is that the writer didn't intend for this to be seen as an indictment against having sex. It's just that sleeping with Linds makes Janet too distracted with romantic drama to focus on what's happening.
