A short but atmospheric VN that has beautiful writing and interesting art direction for the dark religious theme.

+ The writing style has a lyrical quality to it with descriptions that are fitting to Biblical allusions. I find this one of the strongest aspects in this VN, that the story is very enjoyable and pleasant to read.
+ Unique human character design which is Sam Arehart's trademark and always gives the work a one-of-a-kind feeling. In this game the humans resemble ancient alien angel depictions with the many eyes.

Hello, I wanted to ask if you'd be willing to have one of your games be part of a Visual Novel co-op bundle?

I'm planning to run the bundle from March 7th to 21st. Revenue would be split equally. And the bundle price would be set at $1 USD per game.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Sure! Shoot me an email to ishtar43893@gmail.com and we can talk details :)!
