Alcyone: The Last City is a sci-fi interactive novel taking place in the last city in existence after a catastrophic apocalypse has destroyed the rest of the universe. Players have strong agency and narrative control over the game's story as their choices influence the direction the plot plays out, and have the capacity to help the City's rulers, spark revolution, or destroy everything entirely. In addition to hundreds of thousands of words in content, the game also features a full, original soundtrack with over an hour of music and hand-painted digital artwork to accompany the text.
