Sun Labyrinth is currently working on the commercial visual novel Tell A Demon
a fantasy story with elements of horror set in the 1920s style city-state of Asher.
It is executed with hand-painted textures and digital painting.
The story has three points of view (Julius, Kalevel, and Tell), each with their own story that intertwines with the other characters' depending on player choices. Some romantic options are available. However, Tell a Demon
is not a dating sim. The player guides plot and character development that might include romance, depending on the character, rather than choosing a romantic route.
Characters updated when I get to a point in development in which I have non-spoilery screenshots of them. Markaius, the Empress's Shadow, Tetrine and a few other characters from Asher
will also make their appearances. Although Tell a Demon
is a standalone story (you won't have to read the previous story to understand what's going on), it chronologically takes place about six months after the events of Asher
. (All of which is fortunate because Asher
needs to be remade. ;)
1) If you saw the old demo and art, what do you think of the new look?
2) Which character(s) are you most interested in playing and why?
3) Is there anything you're unclear about with regards to the story, or that you would like to learn more about before playing a demo?
Some more screenshots below. Text and images in screenshots may not be final. Dream sequences and similar types of scenes shift in art style.
