Make decisions, learn magic and lift the villain's curse instead of destroying her in this puzzle-adventure visual novel.
Announcement trailer out now for the Empress of Aeser.
You have the opportunity to do just that—or die trying—in this visual novel set in the 1920s-style fantasy world of Aeser. Choose love, overcome loss, or wreak vengeance from the perspectives of three different protagonists whose stories intertwine or diverge in response to your choices.
Will you stop her?
You play as Tetrine Reish in this puzzle-adventure visual novel. You were born with the rare ability to see magic, which got you killed last winter (during the events of Asher). You got better. Sort of. You're not the same as you once were.
You must find a way to lift the curse plaguing your employer's sister, the Empress' Shadow, before the Shadow succeeds in restoring the old dread empire and crowning herself the next Empress of Aeser.
You play as Tetrine Reish in this interactive story. You were born with the rare ability to read and write in the magical language called “the Nell.” Until now, your family secret was simply a strange little fact to go along with a handful of other strange little facts hidden up your family tree: for instance, that your childhood home is haunted, that your great Gran Hailie won her fortune under mysterious circumstances, and that your older brother has a bootlegging habit.
You could sweep all that under the rug until now. The cat’s out of the bag, your secret is out, and you’re about to find out that what you thought was an interesting-but-useless family trait is much, much more important than you ever suspected.
And it will probably get you killed.

In this short point-and-click game/love story, set before the events of Asher, you play from the perspective of multiple protagonists.
Tetrine Reish just wants to meet her boyfriend, avoid going stir-crazy while cooped up with her roommate, and wait out the Tarsian Flu. Not all goes according to plan. Her ‘beau’ has secrets and her roommate may have good reason for not being too fond of him.
Kalevel Venhera needs to find someone who can read and write Nell magic. She thinks she’s finally found a candidate, but she may lose him before she can make use of him—and he has already proved untrustworthy.
The ancient and immortal demon Markaius is playing at being human, but the jig, as they say, is up.
