So Demonheart is a first-person visual novel in a dark fantasy setting for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. While #gameplay consists of 5 chapters, these will be released throughout 2017. Hence the dark theme, this could be an interesting release.
Bright is a young woman from a small, peaceful town. Dark times have come for her family, but luckily, she has the favor of the famous healer-witch Orchid. Benevolent, calm and beloved by all, Orchid hides dark secrets that Bright begins to uncover.
So Bright gets drawn into a world of darkness and treachery. It seems she can never be alone again – for a powerful demonic presence has taken an interest in her activities, and his voice enters her mind at the most inappropriate times.
There are also others who play a significant role in Bright’s new life… Ari, a young apprentice witch seduced by bad influences. She tries to be friendly, even though she knows Bright is meant to be her enemy… or is she? And Sir Brash, a notorious evil knight who develops a soft spot for Bright, but has a rather special way of showing affection.
