Announcement: Sunrider Academy

logo back

Love in Space is proud to announce SUNRIDER ACADEMY, a spin off game to Sunrider.


You are Kayto Shields, an ordinary man thrown into an extraordinary adventure. It was only his first day as the vice president of the Sunrider Academy student council when the unreasonable class president appointed him to be the school club manager. “These clubs cause nothing but trouble,” she said. “I’m appointing you to take charge and fix them up by the end of the year!”

Add to that another completely unreasonable bet with his little sister that he’ll get a girlfriend by the end of the year, and Kayto’s school life already seems hectic! But that’s not even the worst of it! Kayto soon learns that the captains of each of the clubs he’s supposed to manage have serious issues of their own. Surrounded by girls lacking any common sense, his whacky days at Sunrider Academy begin!

You will take control of Kayto as he carefully manages both his student life, and his responsibilities as club manager.

Study hard, bring glory to Sunrider Academy, and get a girlfriend!

Piece of cake, right?


avaAva Crescentia

The president of the Sunrider Academy student council and your long time childhood friend.

She is a high performing individual with some empathy issues. The only enjoyment she gets out of life seems to be mentally outmaneuvering lesser minds, namely Kayto. Hardly ever smiles. Honestly, nobody knows why they’re friends, but Kayto always remains doggedly loyal to her.

She appoints Kayto to be the club manager on the first day of school, setting into motion the chain of events which lead to Kayto’s current predicament.


The captain of the kendo club. May have a few screws loose in her head. Hyperactive and prone to overdoing everything.

The kendo club ended up on the list of problem clubs when it failed to pay any dues for the past three years. Now the club has racked up a substantial debt, owing over 600 space credits to the student council. “B-b-but that’s almost enough creds to buy a nuclear warhead!” Protested Asaga. Unfortunately, her pleas were not heard, and management over her club was given to Kayto.

Will he manage to lead the kendo club to victory in the galactic championships? Or is this the end of the line for Asaga?


She is the captain of the science club, but the problem is that she thinks it’s a baking club!

All she wanted was to join the baking club. Unfortunately, a group of seniors kidnapped her during her second year and made her join the science club instead. They even let her use the matter replicator to make pastries as long as she did some research for them from time to time.

Now, a year has passed and all the seniors have graduated, leaving Chigara as the only member of the science club. And if she doesn’t find four more members by the end of the week, her club will be disbanded!

Can Kayto save the science club? Or is this going to end in a big bang?


The soft spoken and mysterious captain of the swim team.

She lacks all common sense and does not seem to understand much of modern technology. Her club came to the student council’s attention because Sola never submitted any of the club forms. It turned out she didn’t know how to use a holo to fill the forms out. Hardly ever speaks and generally communicates to Kayto through body gestures. Somehow, he seems able to understand exactly what she means though.

She also works as a shrine maiden at the Ryuvian Shrine.

A girl of many mysteries…

marayMaray Shields

Kayto’s younger sister. Cheerful and precocious, she’s always goading Kayto into doing stupid things to impress her.

Due to a rather foolish bet with her that he will get a girlfriend by the end of the year, Kayto now finds himself in a dire predicament. With nearly no experience with romance, he must somehow win the heart of a girl by the year’s end! Clearly, he has his plate full!

Kayto and Maray’s pet dog.

He is a very high ranking officer of the Cera Space Force, outranking even commissioned star ship captains.

However, he seems content to live his life one stroll through the park at a time.






You have full control over Kayto’s actions throughout the day! Carefully balance raising his stats and spending enough time overseeing the various clubs under his management.

Maybe you should spend time at the gym to raise Kayto’s fitness. Or the time can be spent reading at the library to raise his intelligence. As the vice president of the student council, Kayto must maintain good grades or else be forced to resign. On top of that, he must bring prestige to Sunrider Academy by winning kendo competitions, science exhibitions, and swim meets, or else the school will shut down the problem clubs! And if that wasn’t enough, thanks to that stupid bet with his sister, he must also get into a relationship by the end of the year, or else he will have to bare his little sister’s disappointed face! No, anything but the disappointed little sister face!

When you’re not busy with school, Kayto can also explore Cera City. He can get a part time job to earn money to purchase items at the shopping district. Or he could try getting a charm at the Ryuvian shrine to increase his luck. He can unwind at the arcade and the park.

  1. And of course, we know who will be Swim Club captain after all, right? :D

    This is look veeeryyy interesting! even it’s a 99.99$ DLC for Sunrider, I will still buy it.

  2. “Developed at 1080p native resolution, Sunrider Academy will deliver crisp visuals for modern monitors!”

    You mean the default window size is going to be big, right? If yes then I hope there is a way to change it, because my monitor can’t handle anything bigger than 1152 x 864.

  3. Ava might be the captain, but surely the ace on the “Swinging swords around” kendo team would be Icari — well, if they can get her to join.

  4. Ahahahaha i cant wait!! this all sounds like so much fun i gonna die laughing. No but seariusly thats a great chance, its a good way to short the waiting time for Chapter 3 also.

  5. Please, we want to play this game without steam client.
    For all tree operating systems.

    “Mask of Arcadius” delayed because of some bugs. I hope you’ll not have many problems on this game.

  6. I should ask, would I be able to play this without playing the two main games…? I want to wait for the third game to play the main series, but a chance to get to know the characters beforehand would be welcome…

  7. I love the idea of this kind of game, though I wish it would be more historically accurate, so no Chigara or Asaga, since Kayto met them later on his life, and more new characters. But, that’s just me.
