A mysterious letter invites you to Nusakana island, an island south of the continent, promising to tell you of your past. Taking advantage of your vacation allowance and thirst for an adventure, you decided to visit the island, unknowing what will you find there. A simple vacation? An answer to your mysterious past? Or something more precious? You decide yourself in Nusakana.

Nusakana is a JRPG, that is focusing on player's freedom of approach and decision while time is deciding and chasing everything, rather than a straight, linear and guided gameplay and storyline often found in JRPGs. With a cast of over 30 characters and 20 recruitable maiden party members, experience the bustling Nusakana island with its inhabitant, Discover its secret within its lush forest and tranquil waters. But beware of the danger lurking beyond its beauty!

  • Experience the Exotic Locale of Nusakana - The untainted nature-friendly life of Nusakanans will indigenously welcome you. They even struggle to learn outsiders' language (English?) to welcome you in. But surely their native language (Indonesian?) will pique your interest as well.
  • Explore and Survive - The island, though beautiful, holds many enticing secrets with the promise of riches, but beware of the dangers they hold! Plan your adventure with the proper logistics, for hunger and insomnia can ruin your adventure before it even begins.
  • Dynamic World and Time Progression - People and wild beasts all over the island will react differently based on the time and weather.
  • Relationship and Dating sim - Interact with 19 recruitable party members and date with them to learn their secrets and unlock their potential!
  • Complex Turn Based Battle System - Inspired by classic JRPG turn-based battles, mix and match your party according to the enemies you face!
  • Gather and Craft - Rich in natural resources and exotic vegetation, it is said you can craft anything with what you find in Nusakana. Gather raw resources and craft items to help you on your adventure.
  • Trade and Mercantile - Get rich by selling Nusakana's commodities and handicrafts to the traveling merchant who comes from overseas.
  • Fishing - Fishing in Nusakana is not just a minigame, it's one of the core gameplay mechanics! Experience semi-realistic fishing, and learn the environment and fish characteristics to increase your success in catching a giant, legendary fish!
  • Beautiful Soundtrack - Traverse Nusakana with a Jazz and Bossa Nova inspired soundtrack to accompany you!

Wow... The game seems to be pretty fun, but there is like so many things to do. I'm not really sure where to begin.

It says this purchase comes with a Steam key. I purchased recently, but no keys were provided to me.

Hello, we're sorry for your trouble, your purchase should have come with the steam key, have you checked this page yet: https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought

I purchased with my registered itch.io account. The download page for this order only has a direct download link, doesn't have the steam key button which is usually there if steam keys are included. I checked my email, it just directs me to the same download page. Am I missing anything?

I really like this game. It's so peaceful and relaxing, it feels like a holiday trip. And it's so full of content and ideas. The graphics are great too, very unique and well done. Wonderful creation!

Thank you! We are glad you are enjoying the game!

Hey there,

I have a small question, I am not really into magic nudity horror and demons and all and I am always on the lookout for RPG maker games without it.

Is this game contain any of it? 

Hello, the game does not contain magic nudity horror (there is a bit of nudity but not in offensive or explicit manner) nor demons.

Thanks for the response, I will defiantly buy the game once it is one sale again 🙂 

And thanks for the understanding.


Hey Studio Namaapa, This is a great game! I enjoyed it tons and spent a lot of time on it. Thank you so much for making this awesome game!

Thank you very much! We are glad that you are enjoying the game! =D

Greetings  Studio Namaapa! So um, I don't know how to say it properly. You see I finally received enough money to buy your game,(''Nusakana") but when I was trying to buy it on "PayPal", I could not choose my country on their list, and so I was unable to buy your game. So I thought that, could I buy your game through my card instead of "PayPal"?

Well, to be honest We don't know what we should do with this since the Paypal payment is being handled by itch.io. Could you maybe try in another store like Steam? The game is in discount right now until November 29th! (though we will apply the discount to in our itch.io page)

*sigh* Alright, thank you for the answer. Last question, If I will buy this game in Steam, should I be prepare to some censorships in the Steam version of the game?

Don't worry, there is no censorship at all on both version of the game.

Hey guys,

I'm a victim of a nasty bug that makes it impossible to start the game. Every time I click on Game.exe and it begins to load, a pop-up window appears with the following message:

"  Script 'Screenshot Folder' line 114: ArgumentError occurred. 

invalid byte sequence in UTF-8  "

After that it stops loading and returns to desktop. The game never starts.

I'd appreciate any help in solving this issue, please. I was looking forward to playing Nusakana, but due to this circumstance I'm unable to even try it.

Thank you for the report. We will try to solve this problem as soon as possible!

Can you give us information about your PC OS and your system language? Also, if this problem persists if you run the game from another PC/laptops.

Thank you for your swift response. My PC OS is Windows 10 and my system language is Spanish (BTW I've already tried changing the region to United States, to no avail). Unfortunately, I didn't really have the chance to test the game in other computers as I don't have any easily available, but let me try to find one tomorrow and I'll tell you how it goes.

Alright, we will wait for your report tomorrow! In the meantime, you may try changing the system language to united states, not just region/language and see if it works. The better solution might be using applocale to change system language altogether.

Hi again. I've just tested the game in a friend's laptop (Windows 7, Spanish language), and the exactly same error occurs, no difference whatsoever. Also, I've tried with Applocale, but instead of the original error I get a Protection Error window that says the following:

" Debugger detected - Please close it down and restart! "

Of course, it won't let me start the game either. Regarding the system language change, that would be a too radical solution for me, as I need my PC in Spanish for other things; I could try it, but it wouldn't be a long-term solution for me. Unfortunately, it seems that the only option left for me is to wait and hope that you can find a fix for this. In any case, I'm very grateful for your assistance and commitment to solve this issue.

It seems that the main culprit is the difference in the system language, but we are still not sure. We will try to fix this problem, but we can't guarantee if it may work, so we apologize in advance. Also, if you have discord, it will be a tremendous help for you to join our server so we may get more detailed info about the problem and try to solve it immediately, here's our discord server link: https://discord.gg/pR9vXJh

is there a demo


Oh, please use bitmap fonts in dialogues.

Any chance of a Linux version? :)

Unfortunately, Due to the limitation of the game engine we are using there will be no linux and mac version available. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I love the game so far! I like that you can more or less do what you want right off at the start. I might play more of this in the future and do more videos. I also can't believe that this was made in RPG maker. I also really like the soundtrack! Really fits the setting!

Thank you! We hope you're enjoying the game! :D
