Hey! So I was originally was planning to buy the game from Steam and I unfortunately couldn't, due to it not being available in my region, iirc? I can't buy from itch.io, mostly bc I don't want to </3

What should I do??

If you cannot buy from Steam and don't want to buy from itch.io, unfortunately there are no other options, sorry!

its fine!! I appreciate you guys taking time off your day to reply :)

Does this game have a demo? And will this be on sale again around Christmas? 🥺

Just a quick question about the steam version: Are there any differences between the steam and the itch.io version or are they exactly the same?

They're exactly the same!

Okay, thanks for the answer! :)

Quand est ce que sortira la version française ? J'ai suivis son développement et si je le trompe pas il était prévu qu'il sorte aussi en français :/

C'est une très bonne question; moi-même j'aimerais beaucoup traduire ce jeu, puisque c'est un de mes favoris! Je ne savais pas du tout qu'une version française était prévue.

AHHH i loved Leos route!!! He's so handsome OMFGJJDJSJAJ I LOVED THIS GAME SO MUCH!! I haven't done the other routes but I will do them another day!! ^^

I keep getting error An exception has occurred in all three options in one part of the game, so I can't progress further! Where can I report it?

Please send screenshots and info to: support@twoandahalfstudios.com so we can look into it!

Thank you, done! Is it safe to just press Ignore and continue the game? I just found that option on those error messages.

It should be, but reporting them is the best way to get it fixed!

The game was to come out of base also in French, can someone let me know when this is done? :(

This was a beautiful game :-) I am not generally interested in stories involving gods, but despite a lot of bickering, I loved the characters and completed a full playthrough with all routes.

Spoilery thoughts below - if you haven't played, just know that I very much recommend the game :-)


Loved: Voice acting, art, sex scenes, the characters, the humour, how each route is tailored to the chosen love interest, secondary love stories (was so incredibly invested in I + V)

Was less a fan of:
* After choosing a route, the other love interests fade into the background and are absent for a large chunk. I really liked seeing the dynamics between all four and wanted to see them keep travelling as a group, but I also understand how this would have been a lot more effort given the branching.

* What went down in Aurelia Cavella. I felt there was way too much evil going on for Aemyl to apologise and go back to being a ruler. Especially Azuros seems pretty unforgivable, as well as just murdering people without remorse (even if Lucius was encouraging it). That was probably my major problem with the game.

* Some of the bickering felt too much (especially Cyne/Leos could be unrelentingly mean) and I felt uncomfortable with scenes where Leos gets touched when he has made it clear he doesn't like that. I did enjoy how some of the earlier tensions were resolved at least in part later on.

* Despite all the explanations, Elliot's attitude never worked for me. Given there was a credible threat to all his people, backed up by someone he knew and trusted (Veras), Elliot's continuing insistence that this was a "human problem" and it was somehow safer for his people to do nothing was hard to stomach.

I still keep thinking about the characters. I loved Cyne the most though his route was harrowing at times. In my mind, he and Raen are gonna be mostly happily polyamorous (I think it's who Cyne is, and Raen hasn't grown up with societal pressure to find the "one and only").

Thank you for a wonderful game, and even if it was a ton of work, I really, really appreciated the branching story paths and beautifully varied romance and sex scenes.

If Veras were to have a nickname what would you as his creator(s?) say it would be? I’ve been thinking about this for a while and have tried to come up with one for him on my own with no luck because nothing seems to suit him in my mind. I’m very curious about what you have to say. 


Oh, what an interesting question! I think his nickname would definitely depend on who was speaking to him. In the case of people who respect him/worship him (if the world ever got back to that!) he might be called things like the Bountiful One, Guardian of the Crops, Lord of the Fields, the Blue-winged Guardian, this kind of vein of thinking.

For friends, they would probably relate either to his blue bird form or his peach colored haired. If they wanted to pick on him, they could call him birdman... but I imagine he'd get Peachy, Birdy, neither of which he would mind. He also wouldn't mind being called 'Wren', which is the type of bird he is!

However, Illran would definitely give him the most endearing nicknames. Illran usually gives bad nicknames to people, but Veras is definitely an exception. Things like 'Sunshine', 'my Everything',  though I also imagine he would call Veras some more respectful nicknames to make him a little embarrassed.

Veras, to me, seems like the kind of character who probably wouldn't have a nickname he was particuarly attached to or used himself, but wouldn't at all mind being called different nicknames by different people. He would value it as a sign of friendship-he'd like it a lot!

Veras is the one I’ve grown attached to most, after him is Fawn. But Veras specifically is the one that has a special place in my heart. If you couldn’t tell. We even have a fictive based on him in our system because the attachment is just that strong. You answering is very very very much appreciated and really means a lot to me. I mean this in the most sincere genuine way humanly possible, thank you. 

Hello! I'm very interested in checking out the game, but sadly, my country doesn't offer your game on steam. I was therefore wondering if you'd apply the sale price on itch.io as well, given how it comes with the steam key? If not, I still want to thank you for reaching out!!! 

The game will be on sale tomorrow for the one year anniversary! <3

Thank you so much!!! I immediately bought the game. I might be a little out of line here, but do you intend to add steam deck support anytime soon? Anything regarding loading or save functions seems pretty much incomptabile (i.e. error codes, game crashes, impossible to play) but then again, I don't know much about how coding works and whether this is even fixable.. Thank you for releasing such a great game either way!! 

Question! I have downloaded the game in the beginning when not all the voice acting was out (didn't notice untill playing the game till a route). I saw that now all the voice acting has been added to the game. Is there a way to add that to my already existing game + save files?

You'll have to redownload the full game for the rest of the voices (since some other changes have been made to the game since to accommodate for them!) but you shouldn't lose your save files!

Ah, okii so there is no voice patch? Cause when switching laptops I lost a lot of my online accounts, as well as my Itch.io account.

Yeah, it's not just a patch per say - it was a full game update (which included some extra CGs and other fixes!)

Ah okay got it, thanks anyways!

When I bought the game, never have I imagined it to be this amazing! Apart from the beautiful art and soundtrack and the great voice actors, the story is so well thought through and elaborate, I'm so impressed! I just finished playing the Fawn route and to be honest, their first sex scene was probably the most beautiful and intimate NSFW scene I have ever seen in a game or a visual novel. Thank you for your amazing work!

If I buy it here am I going to get a steam key? I prefer having all my games on steam and playing there, but it's banned in Germany :/

Yes, you will get a Steam key with purchase!

Hello! Are you able to choose your position regarding the nsfw scenes or is it already determined? :) 


It's predetermined! The MC bottoms in the Leos route, tops in the Cyne route, and is a switch in the Fawn route. In the Leos DLC (available on our Patreon) there are two scenes you get to pick from (aka you don't have to play both!) where you can pick the positions! Thank you :D <3

Thank you for replying!


This game is absolutely FANTASTIC. The writing, the characters, the art all phenomenal! 10/10 in my opinion and I do not say this lightly. (It's also one of the longest VN's I've played - I usually breeze through even the longer ones in 8-9 hours, but it took me at least 12 to complete ONE romantic route.)

However, I almost skipped over it, as the description was not very compelling. I would recommend updating it a bit, as it does no justice to how wonderful this really is, and I wouldn't want it to be missed for such a silly reason. 

For anyone on the fence, here is my attempt to convince you! (No spoilers) 

You play as Raen, a naïve, innocent protagonist ousted from his home under false - possibly nefarious - pretenses. As you journey to find out why this has happened to you and find out what the strange markings on your arm that suddenly appeared mean, you make new friends in Fawn, Leos and Cyne - all outcasts in their own way -  along with an incredibly varied and fun cast of characters who may help - or harm - as you make your way through a journey of mystery, magic and secrets. 

For anyone on the fence about purchasing, please do it so the dev team can continue projects like this! <3 


I definitely agree! And yes, it’s a large game but has a lot of depth and more than one story to explore<3


I agree wholeheartedly! :) The length wasn't a complaint, I was honestly super impressed! It gave me time to really learn about and love the characters. :)


Yeah, I didn’t mean to imply you said it was a bad thing I was just adding on to what you were saying!

You convinced me to buy it on Steam. Thank you! :D

I'm so glad! I hope you love it! :D

Hey! I just bought the game and am looking forward to playing it, but can't seem to download it! I use the itch.io app, and when I try to download the dropdown menu "Install" where you choose the build has no options. When I try anyways it produces the message "While queuing download: TypeError: Cannot read property 'build' of undefined". Not sure if this is due to the new update that seems to have released. 

I ended up downloading through the itchio website, and I'm able to launch it that way but thought I'd comment abt the problem anyways.


Thank you, this should hopefully be fixed now!

Hey, so I was trying to play the game again so I can hear the Leos route VAing but my save files are broken and some options are missing. I keep looping at Oxhabor when the trio is looking for clues and with the only option to go to the fortune teller over an over in an endless loop. Does anyone have any way to fix this?

Nevermind, I found out that I just needed to delete my saves

So if anyone else has this issue I hope you found this instead of going on a large journey

(Honestly my entire day just was me trying to figure out how to fix it)

How do you delete your saves? Because I am running into the same issues.

(2 edits)

I believe someone on Steam said how, I think it’s the “delete” key but I can’t remember. Also make sure you only have one downloaded file, that also causes issues

(1 edit) (+2)

for anyone that read my cons and pros before, I just updated my feelings on voice acting. (they are all good, in fact the mc's and leos are my favorite. better than most other bl games i played in english. The people you got to voice this bl game obviously understand great voice acting.)

I have a question in the gallery between 69 pose with fawn and their first appearance of 2 empty scenes, how can I get them?


Is somewhere a walkthrough? 

https://www.yekbot.com/the-divine-speaker-guide-walkthrough-for-all-routes-cg-en... . Googled: The Devine Speaker Walkthrough and found this (don't know if it's good or not)


Our official artbook comes with a guide in it: https://twoandahalfstudios.itch.io/the-divine-speaker-official-art-and-guide-boo...


Hi ! I’ve just discovered the game and Fawn is my favorite character ! Any news on his voice patch ? I wanted to play his route first but I feel like I’ll miss out if I don’t wait for the VA so I’m waiting ! Is there a set date for his voice patch release ? 

It's out!


Estoy muy emocionada esperando la ruta de Fawn con el parche de voz! Tuve mucha suerte comprandolo en steam hace un tiempo. Su trabajo es maravilloso, muchas gracias <3


Jonah Scotts brilliant voice acting brought me here. I loved how he brought August Willenheim to live in the game 'When the Night comes' and was so happy to find another gem like it. Is there any place where I can find more of his work? Thank you for this beautiful game and all the effort you put in it! Hope to see more of the Two and a Half Studio soon.

hello! Any notice for Fawn patch voice?

I’m playing Leos route now and I’m loving every second! 


Very soon! We're waiting on a handful of actors to do their pickup lines (lines that need redoing or were missed) then we'll be ready for release!

Is this game also available on a phone? Ive seen this game in the playstore, but its only the demo. Will the full game be released on an app once all routes are voiced?

Helloo!!  I just wanted to check in.  Jast has still not updated their website yet with the voice patch and have actually told me they were not notified that there was a voice patch released.   Any recommendations on how to proceed?  Will I have to just buy the game again elsewhere that has the patch?  I don't doubt you guys have sent it to them seeing as it takes them anywhere between 15 days to a month to answer my tickets.  Thanks for your help!

Hey there, that's... disappointing. I don't advise rebuying the game, I'll contact the person who runs JAST BLUE and ask for an update directly from her. For now, send an email to support@twoandahalfstudios.com and someone will hook you up with a Steam code for the game.

 Thank you for your patience!

Thank you so much! Someone finally answered my ticket this evening and said it was uploaded, but I'm not seeing it in their patches or under the game download.  I'll try reinstalling the game off their site and see if that gets me anywhere.  Thanks so much for your help, I greatly appreciate it!

Hey can you update if the re-install worked for you? I also bought mine off of JAST and have been checking in daily to see if they update was there... 

Yes! Sorry I didn't update, life has been crazy beans lately.  It does seem to be working now that I reinstalled. 

thank you!! I'll try it myself to see once I get my pc fixed (lol) thanks for the update in the meantime!!


hello, just wanted to ask if the Fawn route voice patch will be released soon. TwT

P.S: I congratulate you for making a game as beautiful as this one, >w<

Does anyone know when Jast will be updating the game with Leo's voice patch?  I stumbled upon this game on their site and hadn't realized I could buy it here or that it would take so long for them to update the game when patches came out.  I won't be making that mistake again!


Sorry, we don't know when - JAST controls uploads and we can't do anything to speed it up. It's been sent to them, so hopefully not long!

No worries, I created a ticket with them to try and get an update, but they have yet to answer and it's been at least 13 days.  Is there anywhere else I can get the patch or am I just out of luck until Jast updates their site?

Wow, I happened upon this literally the same day the Leos route voice patch came out, what fortuitous timing! This whole story is lovely, from the VA, the art, the music—phenomenal. It’s so clear that all the artists involved put so much time, love, and magic into this. Fawn is my fav, I’m so excited for that last patch to come out. Saving the best for last!

Deleted 1 year ago


The game is still being updated on JAST :)


Uwaaa, Leo's VA is out <3 played it in steam and it was truly magnificent

Hello! Thank you so much for this beautiful game, i was just waiting the voice patch to download, but i have a question, after this voice patch, will be another voice patch or they all voiced now?

Just Fawn's route to go, a little later this month :)


I am so hyped to reinstall and play Leos fully voiced route!! He is the best boy for me....I do have a thing for red heads so, he is perfect!!!!! Downloading right now and cannot wait to get started all over again!

I have a question would I have to purchase the game again in order to obtain Leos and Fawn's Voice patch? Or would I have to delete my current one and download it again?

Just delete and redownload :)

Great. Thanks! P.S. Best game ever!

Thank you so much!!! <3

* update*

I forgot to actually update, I judged the mc voice actor to harshly in my first play through, it's actually very very good. Please disregard anything i said about the Mc's voice.

great game.


Art was probably the best thing about the game. I would even say better art than some of Nitrol+Chiral games and they are very successful developer.

Story was really good. I loved the story, fantasy is always my cup of tea. The pacing was excellent too, nothing felt rushed or dragged down.

Romance was excellent. Some games make mistake by not actually building up a believable romance, but this game does a great job at actually taking you through how a romance would naturally be built up and of course in different ways based on the character you go for. The romance also always present throughout the story, so you never feel that all of sudden the characters forget they like each other.

Side characters have story. It's actually amazing to see a game not just use the side characters as plot movers but actually give them a story and focus a little on their romance.

Voice acting is actually decent. Unfortunately i didn't feel MC voice fit his character, so i had to mute that one... however everyone else's completely fit. Also there was actually emotion... like thank goodness, too many BL games kept using this one infamous voice actor that i swear never understood the "act" part of actor and read everything very monotone.

Cons *not many*: 

Writing could be better. This is naturally going to be a thing since writing is hard to get right and can take a long while to actually perfect. The writing in this story started off very strong but started to fall flat in 2nd half of game. The reason I say this because in the 2nd half some of the bigger plot points started to get explained through a single dialogue scene. I do make me wonder if this was truly just a fault of the writing or because lack of budget. Since I imagine if the developer actually explained some of these bigger plots throughout the story it would make the game longer.

Music is ok. The soundtrack wasn't anything amazing, in fact kind of forgettable, but at least you can tell effort was really put in there. I do feel bad saying that since there was an actual singer used, it just at least to me didn't really seem that great.

This last part isn't really a con just my on personal preference. I wish there could have been one more top besides Leos. I always like it when romance options are a bit more even in that way. However, if doing that would just end up causing the story and writing to suffer than it's better to not do that at all.


Hai, I bought this game for a few months now and I wanted to know when is Leo's voice patch coming out? its a really great game tho <3

(1 edit)

hi sorry for this but I have a problem I downloded the game and it wont open. what should I do?

Hi! Thanks for the great game! I did notice a couple of bugs while playing it, though. 

Firstly, while trying to access the Codex at one point (I believe in the gods' village), I got this error message:

IOError: Couldn't find file 'gui/codex/entries/places/encsv.jpg'.

Secondly, after the final fight, Leos and Cyne returned (I was playing Fawn's route). The dialogue repeated to an extent, with Leos saying goodbye twice, and Cyne initially agreeing to come with Raen, before then saying he couldn't. It feels as though some of this dialogue might have been from Cyne's route instead of Fawn's.

Thirdly, there wasn't any music during the end credits, and it said "Extended Demo" at the top, although I am pretty certain I was playing the full game.

Sorry if these have been pointed out before. Thanks for the game!



All of those problems were fixed a couple of months ago - I suggest a complete reinstall :)

Thank you!
