I was drawn by the philosophical tone of this game, and I enjoyed the short and sweet story. The gameplay was simple, and, the different endings each gave a powerful tone shift to the story. A simple game, but very memorable!
A downloadable game for Windows
KAIMA is the story of a planet being eaten away by monsters, and a girl determined to survive. this game was made over the course of 2 months, so it's pretty short to run through--takes an hour or so to see everything. there are 5 endings (one is a secret!)
CONTENT WARNING: strong language, violence, cannibalism, and character death. occasional screen shakes and flashes during certain scenes.
you can get a higher quality version of the soundtrack with bonus tracks over on bandcamp!

I love this I got all the endings and just keep up the good work im obsessed with your games now! :)
Any chance of this lovely game being ported to Android? :D
i'm not able to port rpg maker games at the moment unfortunately, so there are no plans right now.
make it on mac plez
but I don't really get how to get the good ending.
got the indifferent ending, the bad ending.
dragging fights out longer didnt seem to provide any new options either
nevermind. not attacking does make a difference.
I had alot of fun playing this and finally got all of the endings. It took so long to find it but I did it after messing around a bit. You're very sneaky( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). but it was really fun and enjoyable.
Why does this game have LGBT tag? I don't remember this game to have any LGBT elements. Is this subtle way to imply that there will be romance between Searina and Illi?
illi was in love with ezel and wanted to be with her. but yeah it's also left open for illi and searina to develop into something after the true ending.
Wow, really? I thought that Ezel was a dear and very close friend for Illi, but not a love interest.
i guess when a girl says "i love her" everyone assumes it's friendship. sorry that it wasn't more clear, ezel devoured a bunch of demons who were in love with her so really illi was just next in line, though she thought ezel's affection was real, that's why she struggles with it so much in the true end path.
"i guess when a girl says "i love her" everyone assumes it's friendship." (FACEPALM) Oh, stupid me. It was long time ago when I played KAIMA, so probably I missed this part. =)
"ezel devoured a bunch of demons who were in love" Wait, I thought she ate her loyal followers, basically cultists (I mean there was personality cult of her. Although you could argue that they loved her, although it would be non-romantic love).
the followers thing is pretty vague yeah but it can be all kinds of love. maybe ezel had a sex cult lol
i think a lot of things in this game in particular were left a little abstract--if i rewrote it nowadays i'd probably be more explicit/add more detail to flesh things out and give a clearer picture of what was in my head haha
what name is app to make this game ?
SPOILER WARNING FOR ANYONE WHO DID NOT PLAY
So first I got True End, where SEARINA reunites with her soul. Basically a happy end? Just don't kill VIDO and ILLI then you get it.
Then I got GAME OVER, by when I started, I ran straight into the black thing-a-ma-bob and died. It's kinda cool that I'm the only one that can save KAIMA. Oh and I experimented, and if you go ANYWHERE WITHOUT ILLI, you get that ending.
Next I got Normal End, I ran straight through the path WITH ILLI, we killed VIDO, EZEL was freed, (it might be wrong bad memories :b) and yeah ILLI went with her...
Then I got Indifferent End, by listening to VIDO'S story then killing him. SEARINA said she had a bad feeling, but it ended the same like Normal End. However, it said, "Are you really going to accept this ending?" If you say Hella No, then it takes you back where you get to choose to stop ILLI from killing VIDO or not. IIf you say Yeah, it says "Suit yourself."
Last, I got Bad End. When you fight ILLI, if you kill her, you become partners with EZEL.
This is quite short, but has a deep setting into it.
I love it.
Thanks for making all these games, Nami <3
how did you not kill him?
i mean, you can make him free her, but then he will get killed by the other girl anyways.
and you'll be forced into a fight with your frined anyways.
did I miss a step?
Or should I have not side tracked and instead went straight for the boss when coming to the intersection for the first time?
Nami I luv your games <3
Really cool game, got the secret ending as my second ending ;)
Would it be possible to get a Mac version~?
rpg maker is pc only, sorry :( but if you use a program called wine, you can run the game just fine through that!
русский языкбудет ?
This game was really clever and full of energy for its short length! It reminds me of Cave Story in how there are so many different routes you can take in order to unlock different endings, and how those routes aren’t obvious at first, making it much like a puzzle in addition to a typical RPG. I especially like how the game blends together the story with the gameplay, as well.
It is short, so I don’t have too much to say about it, though I did write a silly three-star review about it. I don’t know what happened at the end of that. Try not to be afraid.
I got secret end in my second try it was pretty good
has anyone got the Secret Ending? I find it a lot more difficult to get as I am trying to figure out a way to get certain endings based on the amount of levels that both Searina and Illi have.
1. Searina and Illi @ Level 1 -> possibly Secret End
2. Searina and Illi @ Level 2 -> Normal End
3. Searina and Illi @ Level 3 -> Indifferent End/True End
So far, I hardly tried getting the Secret Ending based on Level 1 as I either kill Vido or get killed by him whenever I keep on finding a way to get to Ezel and get killed by her on purpose. It is so annoying! I wonder if the game is being bugged or something?
*Updated* I found it but I somewhat found it a bit disappointing that Nami didn't spend a lot of time expanding that point afterwards which could lead to Illi being the main protagonist instead of Searina whilst at the same time have both of the girls fight off against each other along with Vido (and possibly even Ezel as well).
I got secret ending it's not bugged there's some secret areas on game
I got the secret ending after another user pointed it out and updated this comment straight after. I am just a bit disappointed that Nami didn't branched out that ending and made Searina the main antagonist along with Vido whilst at the same time have Illi become the new female protagonist instead.
no mac ;=;?
sorry, the program i made this game in is windows only. but you can use a program called wine to play it! i've never used it myself so i can't offer instructions on how, but i've heard a lot of people got it to work through that so i hope it's not too difficult?
How many endings are there? I had already completed three so far; Bad End, Indifferent End and True End.
there's 5! one is a secret end.
Okay Thanks! I will work hard to get the other two ending, especially the one that is kept as a secret! :)
<Updated>: I got the other two which was the Game Over and Normal. I like it overall but I think you could add more levels in to make the game a little bit longer. Oh well, I supposed you wanted to creative this game as a fun thing rather than just make it all serious as well as at the same not doing it for the sake of it.
What was this made in?
rpg maker vx ace!
Nice! Any plans of an RPG Maker MV port?
no, that would mean i would have to redraw all the assets to be the right size and i don't have time for that haha
Well I do have software that would scale up the images to MV standards. I wouldn't mind trying to see if I could port it over to MV.
this game is what got me interested in you! Your writing is so good I can't discribe! And your one of the first game developers who got me interested in Yuri/Gay games. I hope to see more games from you and hope you continue! From ReawakenedOmega
wow thank you so much!! glad to be a gateway developer(?) bringing new folks into the land of yuri games heehee. more games are always coming, slowly but surely~
Well, i think...
I send to you email, with translation.
Good afternoon. Can I transfer your game on the Ukrainian language? Translation can be somewhat, not very reproducing the intonation of the game, but I try. (Yes, I started because I was clever ass))))
yeah that would be great! email me if you need anything, have questions, etc. (my email is listed on my profile)
For some reason the health of the character stays the same, even in a new game, and i can't fight without dying
try to avoid fighting until you pick up your other party member! she can heal haha
Really beautiful game, but I have the feeling that I just played a DEMO of it. Don't get me wrong, it was great, but, I feel like it should have been longer and with more character development.
If you are going to release a "complete version", I would happily buyed it.
This was really cool <3 You used the RPG framework in really interesting ways & it was cool how many different paths were in such a short game. The writing of the soulless character was rly interesting and something I've never seen before. The art was also super pretty. Thanks for this game!
This is the fourth game i played that you created and all the games i played were so cool
I came here by a page that translate games (english-spanish) but I can't find the spanish version (I don't really know too much english </3)
if you click "download now" there is a file called "KAIMA.rar (spanish)", that's the one you want!
This game was really fun to play. The story seems really cool. I've seen this game before, so I'm glad I finally played it.
I really enjoyed the game and asked the subs to check out your patreon.
Take a look at the video if you like!
48 mins to complete this game :)
nice job nomnomnami :D
if VIDO and EZEL was be playable characters?
Excellent game. The storyline though short, is phenomenal. I like how the creator has added the RPG element to it, which fits right in and nicely.
When you spend hours and hours digging through itch.io and gamejolt, and you find little gems like these, it makes the digging worthwhile. Your game is incredibly touching for something that looks so simple, and is by far one of my favourite on itch.io! (Sorry if the punctuation makes me seem like soulless Searina)
Hey, Nami! Me and my friend thinking about making a rpg maker game about next year. So can you help me ? I just have a question.
What programs do you use for your rpg maker games? Can you tell me all programs?
Thanks a lot! And keep up the great work!
sure! i used vx ace for all the ones i released by the new one, mv, is compatible with mac and stuff so i'm switching to it for wider availability. for art i use paint tool sai and clip studio paint, and for music i use fl studio 12.
...Is it bad that I found the hard vore undertones in the game the thing that compelled me the most? <.<
How do you get the true ending???
This game made me so happy, i've never found a game where i just loved the characters, and i had a connection to them. I just wish it was longer. i look forward to playing your other games. this one was pretty amazing
