A fresh start. A bold leap into the unknown.

Have you ever wanted to just run away from it all? To escape from a familiar misery and plunge head-first into a brighter future?

Sileo: Tales of a New Dawn is a gay furry visual novel that was first unveiled to the world in June 2020 and has since ballooned into something far bigger than any of us could have ever anticipated! We're ecstatic with the progress we've made so far, but really, we've barely even gotten started! Sileo features several novel-length routes already with several more planned for the future! In addition, we have an almost endless supply of ideas on what we'd like to do after those routes are released!

Sileo is presently available on Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Android (via Sideload). For information on other platforms and storefronts, please see the FAQ linked above.

New builds of Sileo are released with our supporters on Patreon getting the first look at our brand new content before the same content is made available here on Itch.io! We make Sileo available for free as we want as many people to be able to enjoy it as possible, but making a visual novel is incredibly hard work! We appreciate everybody who lends us a hand, be it by supporting us on Patreon, tipping us here on Itch.io, engaging in our Discord Community, or even just retweeting us over on Twitter!

There is plenty more Sileo yet to come! Don't touch that dial, and be sure to
support us on Patreon to get the first look at what is to come in addition to high-resolution artwork downloads, the opportunity to have your name in the credits, and even the chance to peer behind the veil and see just what goes into creating a project like Sileo?

Is there any Chinese?

There is a fan translation you can find here: Telegram / Discord


Hey ! Is it normal that if i choose Axel or Dom route, i always end up with Russel the shark and then game over ?


Yes, that's an early preview of Day 5 without any of the branching paths implemented yet. Those will be arriving in the next update.

So that's why it took so long. Our twinky boys are next!
I would like to thank you in advance for the good food you'll be serving us.



Diego's route was such a nice read!  Really liked the sweet ending and how much love the MC and him shared.  Honestly really hated Kyrex... what a freaking tool.  

Got pretty far in Tai's route and for a bit I thought I was going to really enjoy that one too but I personally didn't like the Logan thing.  That's just not my cup of tea and I didn't end up finishing it.  Not to say others won't enjoy it though!  I just didn't much.  

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with Lukas's route though.  He's such a hunk.  

Great job all around and I'm really looking forward to future updates :)

OMG Tai ilove him so much, his story make my heart beark and im cry in my work time...the music help me feel much more how he pain

I love Adrian, he is so hotty husky. I want to hug his fur too. Plus this game is so incredible 馃槏馃槏

Can't believe it's been 3 months. January felt like yesterday

I want Lukas and Russel Routes 

Hey xevvy any drawing tips?

As a non-artist: No, not really.


I need axellll


(and his dad)

(and Dom)


I'm trying so hard to not bang axel's dad



This visual novel is really great, both the emotion and the description of the plot make me addicted, but I am really curious, Axel and dom line will definitely be together with the shark four people, not to say that the shark is bad, just want to know if there are three people together or with one of the possibilities


I want a Poly VN soo much


really loving this visual novel so far completed diego's route and was amazing i love the closure and the love, will defiantly try tai's route at some point also looking forward to the progression of the polymerous route Alex and dom are my favourite characters and really looking forward to that story


Hi Xev, I must say this game is really amazing..
I did Diego's Route first, and then reluctantly Tried Tai's Route.
Although I feel sad about Diego, But Tai's Route is definitely my favorite. He's very charming and i can see Logan a lot in this route.
The way he speaks, and his worrywart personality is very charming, what a handsome Tiger indeed

Thankyou for creating him




Xevvy, I love this story so friggin much! Tai's route was my first and I like it so much I needed to take a little break before I start reading another route because I felt wrong just redoing things without Tai lol. Is there any possibility of some kind of like Epilogue? Where we see how things are going for MC and their romantic interest(s) later on and how they're doing? I'm excited for Lukas' path at some point too!


It's not out of the question, but I want to focus on completing the main routes first so it won't be for a long while at least.

Oh definitely! I'm glad it's an idea you'd consider regardless. Thanks for the reply!

How to get the rest or the illustration 

  • Meet with Kyrex twice between day 4 and day 6 on Diego's Route, then again on Day 7, then continue the main story.
  • Play the Intro Remake from the Tales from Woodcrest menu on the main menu.

ok but when I launched the intro remake what do I do afterwards to obtain the last two illustrations

They can't be missed. Just play it through.

thanks you 


Waiting since the release for the Axel / Dom route. I can't wait for it to come out!

what is the last scene, i need it

Isn't it with the shark dude you meet at the bar at the beginning of poly route? When you choose to lock either dom or axel's route


Correct. Choose Axel or Dom on the Day 5 route select. When the next update releases you'll need to make a few choices to unlock that scene, but in the current public version it's a straight shot - you can't miss it.



I'm in the middle of playing it but its really irritating me that MC keep acting like he was in the wrong for breaking up with Tai when he heard Tai confessing his love for somebody else and he was keeping secrets, yes it was for a good reason but MC is acting like hes a terrible person for not wanting to be with somebody who was telling somebody else "I'll always love you". The breakup is fresh but even then hearing someone you're dating say that to someone you didn't even know they dated is grounds for a break up.


Also, having them meet when Tai was 6 is........

(1 edit) (+1)

And he was watching over him since that day??? So he watched him grow up? And still dated him after? That's so weird on his part. Like this being framed as an epic and deep love story is......

He could live long enough to see the kind of person he grew into and made a decision when Tai was well into adulthood to date him. It's not like Tai was ever setup to fall for the guy. 


I know but the idea of being a grown adult and watching someone grow up then proceeding to date them makes my skin crawl. It just felt like a completely unnecessary addition to their story when they could have just met when Tai was a grown man and everything storywise would have been the exact same.

But it's also not an ordinary situation. Spencer isn't just some old man. He's no doubt seen many others from youth till death.  Don't base a fantasy entirely on standards of the mundane because it doesn't work.

All the more reason you should keep reading ;)

the game is great no doubt about it only problem i  don't know how to avoid threesome in TAI route call me shellfish I was so pissed when i saw him with snowball(polar bear)  i wanted TAI to be  exclusively mine and TAI and MC scene are mostly TAI being a bottom if there's a way if TAI can be a top that's just sweet.

Keep up the good work !

At this stage there isn't a way to avoid that sequence. With the benefit of hindsight, I'd like to go back and make the content with Logan optional, but it's woven into the latter part of the story and would be a fair bit of work to remove. It might be something we invest time into at some later stage, but for now our time is better spent creating new content instead of reworking the stuff we've already done.

well I'm totally agree with you creating a new content I'm waiting for Lukas route my fingers are crossed i hope it is going to be what's i imagine the bull with his long and thi...i...i...i  mean it's to my liking and i appreciate you for  taking your time to reply keep up the good work.

Heyy Xevvy, just asking if Roux will be in the polyamorous route or he will get his own route? 

Roux (and Roo) do make a few appearances in the Poly route. To get the most from it, I'd recommend spending plenty of time with Russell when you have the opportunity.

Ohh ok, just to be sure when will i expect the update to be out?

Containing the new content for Roux? That's still a way off yet. Later this year at the earliest.

Ohh ok! Thanks for the info!

I really should've expected that comment when I chose sausage and meatball pizza. Also, FUCK, this game gets dark

kinda gay, bro

T minus?

First half of April at this stage.

So I played this quite a while ago and had a rather negative experience with it. But I've been informed (admittedly from a somewhat unreliable source) that it has received quite a few changes since then, so I decided to read through a bunch of the comments and decide if I want to try it again.

And I think I discovered part of the reason my prior experience was so negative -- it seems I may have entered a route without realizing it somehow? Based on some of these comments, the bad ending with Kyrex is technically on the Diego route. Is this correct? If so, I,  uh... did not know I was on Diego's route. At all. I had no clue. That's why it was so incredibly weird to me that pissing off Diego was considered a bad ending, because I was in no way trying to get with Diego. And that's also why I thought Diego was so horrifically toxic, because he just declared that we were dating when, from my perspective, we most definitely were not. I haven't tried replaying it again yet -- maybe it's more obvious now when you're on a route -- but if not, it prooobably should be.

You've always needed to select your route on Day 5 and the scene in question happens on Day 7, so not entirely certain how you wouldn't have known what route you were on. Since that scene released, we've made it more obvious what is going to happen though the outcome is still the same if you do it on Diego's route. 

The intention with that scene was to have an outcome which you couldn't necessarily predict and for Diego's response to it to be particularly flawed and human. The protagonist hasn't strictly done anything wrong, and from that perspective the outcome seems entirely unfair. At the same time however, it isn't wrong for Diego to feel how he does and his reaction is something entirely human. It isn't a black or white situation, rather one that is messy and complicated just like real life. It was an attempt to experiment with shades of grey in our storytelling, though in hindsight, perhaps one we weren't quite ready to tackle.

As of the current version, there is only the one bad ending in Sileo and it can only be triggered in Diego's route. Doing the same thing in Tai's Route for instance will result in some dialogue changes throughout the route but won't impact the actual events that take place. We received some pretty harsh feedback when that content was released and we've stuck to fairly linear route design ever since. The Polyamorous Route and Lukas' Route will be more complex and branching but won't feature bad endings in the vein of the one in question. 

Writing for visual novels is certainly a learning experience. I've learned a great deal, but can and will still learn a great deal more. If you decide to give Sileo another go, hopefully our later and more recent work is more to your liking.

I see. I guess I'll give it another try, and maybe this time I can avoid accidentally entering the Diego route without my knowledge. Perhaps I don't need to avoid the Diego route if I actually know I'm entering it; I think Diego just seemed ultra toxic because Diego was the only one who thought I was in an exclusive relationship with him, or even in a relationship at all. Maybe if it's more obvious now it'll be fine.

(1 edit)

Ok, so this screen absolutely did not exist when I last played. I also don't recall MC saying to Eric before that he wanted a relationship with substance... if he did, I must have skipped past that mention. I didn't realize that was a set characteristic of the MC. Given that, I guess the reason I shouldn't play this game is that I can't relate to the MC. Like, this is not a choice I know how to make. I'm not interested in pursuing anyone romantically, and also not just one person.

(1 edit)

K yeah this MC is a fucking asshole.

I'm also starting to think you are as well, since you apparently intended for Kyrex, one of the most well-adjusted characters in the entire fucking game, to be a problematic character.


Thinking that the dev is an asshole for including an asshole. Sure, go off.

You may want to consider reading posts before replying to them.

Hey Xevvy, when do you guys plan to progress Axel's route? Maybe there is something i have to do that i don't know, but when i choose him at Eric's house on day 7,  there's just the whole scene with Russel and nothing more. Is something more i have to do or is Axel's route just that for now? 

Anyways, I love what i have seen from this game so far and i hope it will stay as good and fresh with the next updates

That initial section was just a small preview we released ahead of time while finishing up Tai's Route. Now that Tai's Route is done, we're full steam ahead on content for the Poly Route/Axel, Dom and Russell. The current patreon update has an expanded version of Day 5 with multiple possible endings, this'll arrive in the next public update. The next Patreon update will contain several chapters in Day 6. 

Ok, thanks. When is the next public update? 

Either end of this month or sometime early next month is the current plan.

I have a question, in Tai's route. the mc poses a question a couple of times, what if's. I was wondering if those what if's are actual routes depending on certain answers or if they are just that, what if's. or is it more tied to the next playthrough with the poly relationship that's being made? which I guess doesn't make sence considering they fall in tai's route. not saying I'm hoping for a different ending. I love the ending I got with tai. I'm just curious I guess lol, these what if's have me overthinking lol

The choices in Tai's route only affect dialogue for the most part, the same events play out regardless.

Greetings Xevvy! I know you might be busy with the development, but i was wondering if there existed any actual recipe for the curried egg sandwich, i have been craving it for a few days now, and was wondering if you actually thought of a recipe for it, or simply mentioned it on the top

I don't, unfortunately! I'm sure there are some good recipes online for it though


Just finished Diego's route and im scared of starting Tai's. Will Diego be ok without MC? He seems lonely and I wanna hug him to make sure he's ok OwO


same... the thought of leaving him hurt me

Skoni wawa

Man wtf


Man I can't wait for Lukas's route to be updated


honestly just wow. finally finished Tai's route at whatever time it was first thing this morning, I couldn't put my phone down. such a roller-coaster of emotions. I can honestly say I was not expecting such a captivating story from Tai's route. such a different story to Diego's route, certainly alot more complex which I think is one of the reasons I love this route now. was (not gonna lie) a bit obsessed with Diego's route him being your best friend and with how sweet his story is and all but after playing tai's route. well feels like that story will be tough to top. btw whoever wrote roo! bloody legend mate 馃ぃ(as a fellow Aussie damn it was funny to see his character, just perfect)

Thanks for the good feedback! Roo will be making more appearances is future updates so stay tuned! 

omggg....i love jay so much. really enjoying this VN

French version please !!?


We support fan translations, but being a free project with a very small budget with nobody on the team speaking French, it's not something we can do in house. 

Really enjoying the VN thus far. Just... really hoped that there'd be a bit more choices in some scenes.

Not to spoil too much but... why are we forced to get high out of bloody nowhere?

(1 edit)

The choice not to hasn't been released on Itch yet, these things take time. It's available on Patreon already and will arrive here in the next public update.


I absolutely LOVE this vn soooo much 馃挅馃挅

My one question is whether the mc will be able to date Dom or Axel separately? Like will there be a poly route, Dom route, and Axel route, or will there only be the poly route? Regardless of the answer, thank u so much for such a great story, I would love to someday be able to write something like this! 馃挅馃挅馃挅


Yes, it will be possible to date one or the other specifically. 

[Some Minor Spoilers Ahead!]

I know that the Poly route is not finished yet, but I wanted to try it.
While I expected to get a Fuzzy Foxhole or some Chunky Cheetah Cheeks, what I got instead was a Double Serving of Shark Sushi Sausages.

Like, dude, how did Adrian get both appendages fully up his butt? It's not like he has much experience, I think?

Anyway, this isn't a ranting comment. I just wanted to say that I was kinda shocked? Also, the cg that is shown in the other routes when Russell is introduced has him designed better than his sprite, at least in my opinion. The sprite's design kinda makes him look more like a dolphin, while in the cg, it's clearer that he's a shark.

And as always, keep up the good work! You've done amazingly, and I wish you the best!


The current patreon release/next public update adds several choices and new chapters to Day 5 which make the scene in question entirely optional and allow the day to end in several different ways. There'll be a number of optional scenes like this in the completed route, though some will impact what endings are available to you. This particular one has no impact either way.

As for how Adrian pulled that off... furry buttholes are magical portals leading to a distant and very spacious realm of possibilities!

So we will be able to reject Adrian.


I think the only way to reject yourself is to stop playing.



Thank you for taking the time to answer me!
It's exciting to know what you have planned for the story. I also liked how you made each route kinda "versatile", we get to bottom, then get our final prize by topping. No one will feel left out this way.
Oh, and that introduction rework you're making is already fantastic! At first I kinda liked the original one from "The Village That Never Sleeps", but this new one is the best!

One last question, and you don't have to answer it if you don't want to or don't have the time: Will we be able to date/fool around with characters like Jay? I kinda wanted to "get my dick wet" (with somebody's maw around it) in the strip club in Tai's route.

Sincerely, your sex gourmet of a fan.


It's my hope that most characters will have a scene of their own eventually. Jay already has a scene in Tai's Route, so I'm more inclined to give other characters their chance before revisiting him, but never say never.

Thanks again for elaborating!
And yes, my bad. I haven't  finished Tai's route yet.
And again, sorry for bothering you.

how about date with jay? i mean ... uhh jay's route :3

So i'm guessing the option to pursue Axel or Dom separately will basically be denying or accepting Russell's offer?

Assuming by offer you mean what happens on Day 5, your actions there won't prevent you from pursuing any specific character or ending. It's even possible to pursue Russell without having done anything with him on Day 5.


Just finished Tai's route and my god, I loved EVERYTHING about it. The story, the illustrations, everything was amazing. I adore the type of relationship we get to have with Tai and I am absolutely in love with his personality. Can't wait for Lukas' route and more about all the other characters! 


Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! We're expecting to debut Lukas' route a little later on this year, hopefully it'll live up to your expectations!

Somehow I missed an Illustration between "Glenn vs Roo" and "A Decision Made".  Can you tell me what I may have done to miss it?  Thanks!

That one is in the Intro Remake, you can find that in the Tales from Woodcrest screen on the main menu.

Brilliant... Thank You!

One of the BEST vn i ever read:sob:, and if i can be honest i really envy tai and adrian relationship likee they're so cute together and love each other i wish i can have a relationship like that :sob::sob:


When is the Polyamorous Route most likely going to be finished?


We're only just starting and we're expecting to work on some other stuff here and there such as Lukas' Route and the Intro Remake, so it's impossible to say at this point. Definitely not this year.
