Beautiful game! It really resonated with me and I'm so thankful that this exists. <3
Fiora: Full Bloom
A downloadable game for Windows
"You can do anything, my friend;
you're a flower from rainless earth."
Fiora: Full Bloom is a turn-based RPG where you play as a single character surviving the Droughtlands, where instead of equipping armor and weapons, you equip Identities that completely change your stats and skills.
You wake up each morning needing to fight to get to water, but at the start of the story you lack what you need to defeat the shadows that roam the Droughtlands, so you will just have to submit to them.
This game's story is wrapped in metaphor, inspired by symbolic stories like Revolutionary Girl Utena, and uses RPG gameplay as part of that metaphor. While some parts of the game may come off as inscrutable or confusing, ultimately your experience of those mechanics is the real game, and where the game has something concrete to say, it says it plainly.

I love this character ^^
Fiora: Full Bloom is just wonderful. Playing this made me feel... I guess validated maybe? I could have that wrong, words are hard, but it is what I have got right now. I really haven't seen many games that actually address gender identity, and this does it so well. I was a bit confused at first, since the game does not start out with a tutorial or anything, but figuring it out and being given the tools to figure it out felt right and worked really well. Also, the tilesets, character art, and music are wonderful.
I really enjoyed this and would absolutely recommend it, if you're considering trying it. I hope to see more from FallingStar Games in the future, everything I have seen from them and from the people in them is really good.
Thanks for making this.
A beautiful game that weaves mechanics and storyline together to tell a touching story about struggles with identity and the oppressive feeling of discovering one's true self.
This game can't be played like a traditional RPG. You can't overcome every enemy, you can't grind EXP (for the most part, some enemies DO give it but its rare), and it's not about winning every encounter.
Instead, it uses RPG mechanics to tell its story. Much is unexplained, and in the beginning its a little confusing, but if you keep going with it, I feel like its a really rewarding experience.
High marks all around! I really enjoyed this and there is so much custom and well made assets and content here! I found this so inspiring and while I would have loved the longer experience described in the post-game, I know how hard that is and I'm super happy to have Fiora how it is here and now!
Thanks again for making this game, this is a jewel and you should all be proud! I'll be looking forward to whatever you make in the future!!! :DDD
