A world where people with grave sin in their heart can turn into demons.
What would the future of such a world look like? Will demons with their inhumane powers be the future rulers of this world? Is there a way for humanity to stop them?
Or will they both put their hatred aside to form a brighter future?

Withered Blade is an action romance Visual Novel and our first big project as “Petit Pinion”.
The game has been in development for years, starting as a small side project we’d only work on in our free time. Now it has reached a stage where we are confident in it and plan on getting serious.
Currently about 50% of the art is done. The script is still being worked on and about 30-40% finished. That being said, the first act of the game stands fairly good on its own and we feel it is in a very presentable state. That's why we'd like to get it out there now to see what people might think.
This is our first time really trying to make a good game, so we want to make sure we're on the right path. That's why we're actively looking for opinions. We really hope you provide feedback in this topic.
