Any updates on the progress?
A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
In the far future, the world has been overrun by unknowable entities known simple as the I.C.O. Civilization has all but abandoned the surface and now hides away in structures known as Craters. While both are locked in a violent standstill, the Craters have produced one weapon to combat the I.C.O. threat: the Ferals.
Judah Bishop is a young sea otter who just recently joined the Feral branch of the military and is now plunged into a whole new world of battles, strategy, and danger. He must work with his squadron against any threat that comes his way lest he falls to the I.C.O.
I.C.O. is heavily inspired by anime such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Attack on Titan, and Gurren Lagan which have greatly shaped the design and story being told. I do hope however that I.C.O. is able to carve out its own identity and hopefully be something fresh and new in the furry VN medium.
The project is intended to be SFW with some mild fanservice thrown in for spice.
I.C.O. requires a lot of art assets and time to make and by supporting me, I can have people make the VN even better and allow me to focus on writing the story I want to write!
Art direction and coloring of backgrounds and characters done by the lovely Cody Opulos! Check his twitter out here.

Yis. I haven't posted yet but I did hire a new art director and we're working through the whole thing. It has been a process but he's very good I can't wait to show off what he's done.
The mechina lutris rework is awesome so far! i can't wait to see what else comes of this rewrite compared to the previous version!
Wish we could claim this besides download only
hey man thank for this VN mannnn i love this and highly recommended.......
The game force close when I press start :(
Que no es la trama de Gurren Laggan y Evangelion?
This VN is SO GOOD! The writing....the character development....the suspense! This is such great work, you must be so proud of it. Def gonna be donating to your patreon, I can't wait to see more.
Tried to download on Android and was met with "App not installed." Can't figure out what the issue is here.
That's strange. My artist is also having issues downloading for Mac. I'm trying to solve it atm but I'm not sure what's going on.
Have you tried checking your storage space? Or maybe you have and old update?
In the old update try deleting the app then download it again
On the storage you know what to do, free up space
If you still can't download It then idk, I hope this helps in some way
So game is great but as soon as i heard felix's last name it threw me for a loop, because im northern irish and the Capital of northern ireland is called belfast and for a moment there i was like "hold on a minute did someone say belfast?" The fucks going in? Then i realized, im an idiot and that's his second bloody name! So well done mate you are the first game in years to confuse me. Awesome game though loving it so far
hey, there's a bit of mistype when the dingo and otter were using the simulation on first part of episode 3 or chapter 3, it should be transformed into mode-b but the dialogue are Mode-A. Your welcome
I'll take that into consideration. Thank you! Going to change the Mode names because it's honestly way too confusing lmao.
to clarify, will there be nsfw scenes?, asking before downloading
It's intended to be a SFW VN. I should probably put that in the description but thanks for asking!
squadron use the feral.like to see shay feral.
Hmmm… I don’t know if it’s a problem on my end, but it seems like only the android version is available for download.
This update didn't disappoint
I have a question : Which characters are romance-able ? I plan on playing this VN as soon as I have some free time, since the plot seems really intriguing to me.
Also, I know there won't be NSFW material, but would there be atleast some intimate moments between the MC and the potential love interests ? Nothing too explicit of course, but something more than just a simple "kiss on the cheek" would be nice ^-^
Hmm... Thinking about having to answer this.
Romance won't exactly be the primary focus but I do plan on featuring intimacy in some capacity though that's for the future and the groundwork isn't exactly finalized ATM if that answers your question.
I have a question! Do you have a discord server?
no. not at the moment. i am active on the general furry visual novel server though so you can find me there.
Can't wait for the update 😊
Yas, nice to see your coming back
I.C.O. probably won't feature NSFW content. I considered it at first but I didn't deem it necessary later down the line. There is some fanservice though but nothing explicit.
Sorry, I wanted to give a donation but the paypal thing doesn't seem to be working =(
Looking forward to the time you continue the vn until then I hope you are well and doing good at this moment in time. 😉
Thank you. I think by the end of May, I'll be ready to continue. ^^
Do you get to make choices that change who you romance with. 😥😥 kinda worried iv heard you cant.
My apologies but my plan for I.C.O. is a kinetic, linear kind of VN.
Oh. Ok no problem. 😚. Nothing wrong with that. So far it seen good. Keep it up👋😋👌
Thank you ^^
gil and hugo is my favorite character in lc. o
gil seems to be the fan favorite but hugos a classy option too. :> im very excited to write more about him soon.
donner is a merry?
I'm not sure what you mean by assigned. Do you not have one of the OSs listed?
It says the build is undefined, I think the launcher needs these for it to download? If you can't figure it out I'll just download it from like chrome or something then.
Interesting because I've never had this happen before and I know of plenty of people who have the build anyways. I guess just getting it off of Chrome is the best way then?
gil yell say hi and scared judah.
Hello, hope you had a good day!! 🤗😘
May you pull through your struggles my friend, everyone here and on patreon will wait patiently for when you return. Take care of yourself buddy c:
For some reason when I read Judah I suddenly remembered "Judas" "yes God?" "betray Jesus" "okay".I don't know why I'm so weird.
Cetus i love u
Hey love your work alot! I've already written a detailed review in a sense of your feedback forum on 0.4.5, I know its not the most recent build but I think it'll help alot in the future. Otherwise not much more to say, some people won't like the fact this isn't a NSFW vn and that's completely fine! Honestly I love the gritty apocalyptic mecha feel to it, its so unique and you can tell you put alot of love into the writing. I hope this project of yours takes off in the future someday, I hope to see more work from you for this might be hands down my favorite furry vn right now if not on my top 3.
Oh, wow! Thanks! Hehe, I'm glad I'm on someone's favorite list. Yeah, as far as the NSFW stuff goes, I just don't think it's super necessary though that won't mean I won't go for some fun as you've see with shirtless Hugo. And thanks! I'm getting more support slowly so I'm growing! And you can expect the public build of 0.5. to go live very soon! My artist just has to finish the last few bits and pieces and then we're golden! Look forward to it! ^^
Yeah I won't mind the eye candy here and there hehe, and no problem my friend! I'll definitely be waiting to see what's on the horizon of this story.
Oh, by the way. I noticed your rating for the VN was a 3 star. If that's your true feelings for it I don't mind but I would like to inform you that due to how Itch.io does algorithms, anything lower than 5 stars tends to be a detriment in terms of its rankings and searchability.
Please don't feel forced to do anything but if you do feel strongly about a three star, could I ask you to withdraw your rating for the time being? Sorry if I sound like a shill but algorithms are a pain LOL. Anyways, thanks for the kind words and I hope to deliver more in the future!
Oh really? no by all means I get it! I rated it so because of how I wanted to convey to potential people how it is in its current stage not the final product, but I do want this project to succeed for sure, yeah the algorithm can be iffy I get it I shouldn't of thought like this. But in my personal opinion I'd rate it 5/5.
Rio de Janeiro, April 11st 2021
I don't think the search work. Sometimes I write the name of some novels in Itch search and I see a piece of everything but not the novel I am lucking for.
In other way they appear in to of Google when I typed it and add itch after its name.
Ps.: I don't know how this search stuff work. But sounds weird since 3 stars is a very good rate. 0 or 1 start yes is bad. 2 stars is a nice game. With 4 it catch my deepest feelings and with 5 I would sell my mecha to buy that.Heheh
gostei muito desse VN, sério, as batalhas são muito boas, pelo menos para mim, as interações entre os personagens nessas batalhas foram muito bem escritas e projetadas, estou ansioso pelas próximas atualizações. PS: Eu amo lontras fofas, e misturar isso com Darling the Franxx foi muito inteligente
Is there NSFW content/scenes in this VN?
No and I'm not sure if I will be adding explicit material in the future. However, there's still fanservice and eye candy so it won't be devoid of it.
Not to sound weird but... would you please specify what you mean by "fanservice and eye candy"?
Ah, that's mostly just I guess visually stimulating stuff. Like, there's one scene where Hugo's shirtless and they do talk about sexual things like ass or how good looking a character is. Just nothing explicit.
Far too akin to Darling in the Franxx, not my style
Took me a while to sit down and read them, but the new scenes were very enjoyable, can't wait to play more of it!
Also, do you have somewhere we can report typos and such? Found a small one at the dormitory scene.
I don't have a specific place to report typos but if you found one I guess just the comments.
This is one of my favourite visual novel
Android Version doesnt Work. My android: 10
Phone: Ausus ROG phone 2
This is really troubling because before the Android version stopped working and I thought I fixed it because other people seem to think its fixed. Hm... I'm really not sure what the issue could be. Maybe talking to one of the guys who had issues too? He should be somewhere below.
there is just one with log errors. But i have a different error. The full game isn't starting. It's just...black
That's... I don't know. Have you tried other versions of the Android build before and do they work?
Just the one before. It worked. Idk why. Perhaps android 10 not compatible ?
That... Shouldn't be the case since I uploaded the universal one hm... Could you try out other VNs and see if there's something wrong? If not, I may have to reupload the build again. I'll try bringing it up with a friend who may be able to help. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
better explained. I open the game. Then renpy gets visible and that it's loading. After a while I guess after it finished loading it gets black....nothing happens
Is there nsfw content
At the moment nothing super explicit and I'm not sure if I want to break into fully NSFW yet but I still plan on having fanservicey scenarios and they can still talk about sex all they want and maybe I'll imply it later down the road.
U have to get used to the art but it's dtill pretty good
I keep getting this same error
Hm... Okay. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will try to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. I really dunno why the Android builds don't compile right because it did this last time too.
Try it now and see if it works. Sorry.
