In The Silent Column, you play as Tashen a short time after a terrible event referred to as "the fall", which caused the people of Liberare – the only known city – to go insane, kill themselves, and kill others. Now, however, those events feel like a dream: the fall ended as suddenly as it started, sinking the blood and bodies into the ground and mainly returning everything to normal. Now, after the fall, those who remain find themselves wrapped in something larger than the terrible event as they gradually grow closer to one another.
The writing for the demo for The Silent Column is here! Feel free to read it if you'd like!
(It was long, so I had to split it into two uploads.)

Characters with Routes
Kina struggles with nervous fits related to her mistaking the identity of her brother, Tashen, with another person who she seems to have made up. She tends to be snarky but is sensitive, adventurous, and interested in objects and mysteries that strike her imagination and sense of adventure.
Josephine continues to take care of an orphaned boy named Keith after the fall. She and Keith live with Tashen and Kina, where Josephine likes cooking for and taking care of those she lives with. Quiet and sentimental, Josephine has passive interests but mainly seems to enjoy being the heart of her make-shift family's home.
Nithi lives with Serra and is aware of her apparent abilities. Nithi seems to have difficulty expressing herself with words and, unfortunately, Tashen knows little about her.
Thidria seems to be very nervous of other people. However, after Tashen caught a glimpse of her in her window and started speaking to her through her door, the two of them became very close friends.
