“Will you stop her?”

You play as Tetrine Reish in this narrative adventure game. 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 find yourself alive again (sort of) and working for a woman named Kalevel to find a way to lift her sister's curse. Only, her sister is the Empress' Shadow and the Shadow wants you dead.

Still, you're not going to hold a thing like that against her. She can't help what she was made to be. The Shadow's curse twisted her into an automaton in service of the previous empress, after all, but it's not her fault she wants to restore an old dark empire.

If you can find a magical cure, the Empress' Shadow doesn't have to die. Your employer will be happy and you will be happy because the Shadow will stop trying to kill you. It's a win-win all around.

How hard could it be?

Work-In-Progress Shots
  • Solve puzzles and learn magic in the quest to lift the curse
  • Choices have lasting consequences and can lead to one of several endings
  • Other choices affect Tetrine's personality over time
  • Develop relationships, both friendships and romantic, and make Tetrine to grow as a person
  • Or play to Tetrine's flaws and see what happens

The Empress of Aeser takes place after the events of Tell a Demon. As with all our games, we try to make them as self-contained as possible, but players will probably also recommend you at least play Asher before you play this one.

State of Development

The Empress of Aeser is our upcoming puzzle-adventure visual novel. It's a departure from previous games in that it's has more puzzles and animation.

We have more frequent and detailed behind-the-scenes updates for patreon subscribers.
