Sexy trailer! The trailer is adequately dark and it also previews a few mystery characters too, which has got me more intrigued.

To echo Potouto, I'm really feeling this VN rn. Can't wait until it's out~!

I've been following this topic since the very first post. First it didn't trigger my interests since I thought it would be a small game. Later I started to get interested in the character creation and the choice making.
THen I started to play the demo. I must say, I was in love. I loved the game and I was engrossed into it. The choices, the backgrounds, music and the characters. Everything was just perfect. It is not a slow story like most otome/visual novel games. I truly enjoyed the demo ! <3

Goodluck with this project! It's going to be a succes. Especially for the Demonheart-lovers like me :D

Thank you as well, CatyCats, I'm really happy to hear it surpassed your expectations. It will very likely be a larger game (estimating around 100k words, but it may vary quite a bit). Demonheart is quite cool in terms of having lots of choices as well, so hopefully we'll share some fans!

Some fun announcements:

We're over 50% funded after a couple of days! We'll be posting stretch goals soon, so in the meantime, keep spreading the word!

If you're curious what Vampire House from RE:H you'd belong in, take our quiz to find out!

Markus has started a series of weekly Twitter interviews with RE:H characters called "From the Top of Hollywood." Yesterday he featured Randal, but if you want to submit questions for next week's interview with Heath, make sure to Tweet him @like_a_heretic and tag #killhollywood!

As of this post, we're 119% funded--not far from reaching our first stretch goal! There's still plenty of time to support the project if you're interested!

Image

In case you missed it, Markus also recently did an interview with Heath. All the questions are fan-submitted.

He'll be interviewing Saorise next week, so if you have any questions for the Red Queen, make sure to tweet at him!

24 hours left in our Kickstarter campaign for RE:H!

We're less than $200 away from our $15k stretch goal of more character customization options, so if you want to see them in the final game and grab some bonus rewards while you're at it, consider pledging~

Thank you for the kind words! <3 Total immersion is definitely a key goal, so I'm happy to hear that you found it immersive!

In other news, Markus took over the Argent Games Twitter yesterday--you can read some of his "controlled chaos" Tweets by scrolling down a bit.

He'll also be doing an interview (with a possible plus one) today on our Discord, so join us if you want to ask questions!

12/7 Update

Music Teaser

Today, we’d like to share with you another peek of RE:H’s OST, composed by the very talented Murcielo.

This particular track is for reflective or solemn moments, intended to evoke the loneliness of a vampire in Hollywood.



Script Update

The RE:H script continues its progress! Dovah is working simultaneously on the common route and Randal’s path, dabbling in Heath’s and Markus’ when inspiration arises.

There are many unexpected twists, turns, and long stretches of dark highways forming as the script develops…

Image

Live Q&A

A couple of weeks ago, we had a live Discord Q&A with the cast of RE:H. Markus, Heath, Randal, and Saorise were all present to take your questions, with Dovah as the mediator. Furniture was thrown and threats were made, and it was really just an all-around fun time.

But if you weren’t there to witness it, don’t worry! Thanks to a kind soul on our Discord, you can read all of their replies here!

We’ll be doing another event like this before the release of RE:H, so stay tuned!
