A stranger arrives at Utrecht's Dusk, a remote and almost deserted outpost of the once powerful and wise Knights of Utrecht.

He says he has been accused of a crime he did not commit, and requests their help.

But the Knights are not what they once were. Utrecht, god of Justice and their patron deity, has been missing for ten years, and can no longer lend them magic or guidance.

Crocket, an unexperienced young squire, steps forward...



Hierofanía

And of course, have a download link :)

Like I said, this is my first game. It took me a long time to complete it, and I worked very hard!
Even now I'm very afraid of posting it.
I really, really look forward to your opinions on it. Please, tell me what you thought of the story!!.

If you're going to get technical, keep in mind I'm a newbie, and I have never programmed anything before.
This doesn't mean "Don't critique me." It means, "Critique me in a way that I can understand!"
If you get too technical, I might have no idea of what you said, and your advice will go to waste. XD


Thank you so much for giving my game a chance. :)

Yes you did, and I remain absolutely thankful to you for it :)
It looks a bit nicer, I hope, but the endings are the endings you've already seen.
Thank you so much again, Azure. :)

Just would like to say this is the kind of project I hope to achieve one day, and you already did it with your first game. A singular artistic vision.

Congrats on the release!

Oh my gosh, that's such a huge compliment.
Um, still, I'll wait for your opinion on the game itself!
I mean, imagine if you play it and hate it! That would be so awkward, wouldn't it?
What I really want to say is thank you so much for encouraging me. :)

I played the beta, not much changed since then, right? (I mean the writing)

What I meant to say was very few people attempt to build entire worlds for their game. You were able to almost achieve that 'singular vision'. The only things which were pushing it were
zombies and vampire

This. Well, I don't live there but this sounds really funny seeing as Utrecht's a province/city in Holland. Nonetheless, this seems interesting. Will check it out.

If you played the Beta, then no, the writing is mostly the same. Hopefully some spelling errors were fixed. The most "new" work is on the "visual" aspect of it. Like fixing the dialogue boxes and stuff. I've really tried my best with this.
Thank you for giving it a chance! (again! :D)

Heehehe, now isn't it fun? I live in Argentina, so your cities sound so epic to my ears. I wonder, are people in your province particularly just? :D
Please tell me if you liked the game, will you :)

After being raised on rpgs that used Domremy and Alexandria (also real cities) as fantastic places, I can't say I feel very guilty about using Utrecht's name. To my ear it sounds so awesome. Besides, it can't be said I insulted people living on that part of Holland! Utrecht is a God of Justice, and the main characters in the game care about him very much :D

I hope that if you try this game, you'll like it! Please tell me if you enjoyed the story! :)

I remember playing the beta during the visual novel festival as a judge. This game is still, without a doubt, my personal favorite from the contest. This most definitely is making it into my busy schedule. ^_^

Been playing this a bit. Just finished my first playthrough (ending 6--whoops!), and I'm very much enjoying it. The whole look of the world really sells it; your art and especially backgrounds really set the feel of the world. This is pretty awesome. I'll probably have some more impressions when I have time to play a few more routes and see a bit more of the game.

No, no, just kidding. :D
Thank you so much for supporting me then and now! :)

What you say about the backgrounds is very much appreciated. Although I still think I'm quite terrible at them, you should have seen what bgs I drew BEFORE hierofanìa. I have hopes to improve quite a bit in time for Hierofanìa 2!! :D
I hope you continue to enjoy the next playthroughs! Thank you so much for playing! :)

Wow, no, it's just a fantasy story, it's not meant to be taken like that at all! I hope you like it once you try it! :)
