It's a mature narrative game, set in the European countryside, where your choices impact the main character's personality and appearance.
Daphné is at a dead-end. She's unsatisfied by her personal and professional life. So, when she inherits an old family house in a remote part of the country, she jumps at the opportunity to start anew.
Does she decide to embrace her legacy or does she hang on to her old way of life?
• An adult and slightly occult universe painted with the vibrant colors of the European countryside.
• Your choices change the main character personality, mood and look. (Each time you make this kind of choice, an intuitive feedback system lights up the symbol(s) of the corresponding personality archetype on the top of the screen).
• A huge amount of content, enough to fill a two years compendium of a comic-book series:
— Over 450 hand-made fullscreen illustrations and 20 characters with over 400 different variants and attitudes (including 38 possible appearance evolutions of the main character, Daphné),
— 80.000 words in English, French and Simplified Chinese (which would translate into a 400 pages novel).
• High replayability: 60 different endings, 28 achievements to unlock. Throughout the story, your choices will impact:
— how the plot ends (6 possibilities),
— the destiny of the main character (4 possibilities),
— the romantic relationships of the main character (3 possibilities),
— several smaller plot points (such as the life or death of some supporting characters).
