Developed by Omar AlShaiji and published by Omar AlShaiji


The story is focused on the humans bloodline to the mythologies that

existed 1000 years ago. An experiment occurred in the modern times where

Humans would gain supernatural powers because of their connections to those

mythologies that existed. Julia's journey is to discover the creator of this

experiment and the origins of those mythologies, however she is confronted by

Anubis like character "Inpu The Jackal".

In the game the player can choose to play one of the two characters and playthe same story mode but in different time and order. Each character has his own perspectives and goalsin the same story.In Julia's story, the player has to rely on engagement to progress with the story.While the Nightwolf's story rely on exploration and stealth to progress with the story.Both characters shares a common enemy which is "Inpu The Jackal", he currently hasan unknown background and its up to the player to discover who he is and what is histrue objective. Are you up for the challenge?!The Game's main idea is to let the player feel like he is engaging, feeling andrelating to the characters not just playing them. Engage, Explore, CONNECTand mostly... have FUN!

Finsterwald video game Developed by PolyReality and published by PolyReality

Developed by PolyReality and published by PolyReality

Wandering through the deep forest, the tired wayfarer decides to arrange a night camp in a small glade hidden among the tall pines. After cutting young fragrant pine branches and resting for a while near the lightning fire, he suddenly feels a vague anxiety caused by the weirdness of the surrounding forest - not a single sound, not a single gust of wind...

The deeper the advancing darkness becomes, the deeper and more inevitable is the feeling of the growing danger of blurry forest shadows and glittering red eyes, flashing among the trees.

Only the bright campfire stands between the wayfarer and the strange outlines of the forthcoming tall figure

Finsterwald is a survival horror with elements of adventure VR game (and EVENTUALLY a 3D game - depending on Kickatarter campaign results), based on Dark Ages period German fabulas about Ancient Guardian of the Forests Waldschrat. Vigilantly observing the behavior of all visitors, he watches over the peace and safety of trees, birds, animals and other fosterlings on the entrusted territory.

As today old narratives are almost forgotten, the careless wayfarers often do not possess the rules of behavior and dont have knowledge about ways to tame the ancient power, still hidden in the heart of the forest

State-of-the-art 3D immersive audio technology and modern visual design deliver the most immersive gaming experience ever. Dive into the thrilling atmosphere of old Germanic fabulas and try to cope, having only burning branches of the fire and a desperate desire to survive. Goodwilled Protector of Nature or an Evil Spirit? - Its your turn to decide!

I Want to Pursue the Mean Side Character!is my very first visual novel! I hope you enjoy it!

Beatrix is used to being misunderstood by her fellow peers.With her sharp eyes, tall height, and ringlets, she looks like the mean villain straight from a novel.Thus, she decided that if she was forever going to be seen as the mean bully, she might as well reside herself to the role.However, things change when she becomes fast friends with the new commoner transfer student, to everyones surprise including her own.And more weirdly, how this new transfer student can seem to understand her better than anyone else and can see her for her true self rather than the part she had been reluctantly forced to play!Beatrix Clermont, our easily misunderstood narrator. Has only one friend. Current concern is her height.LilyAbbot, Beatrix's best and only friend. Says weird things sometimes like "tsundere" and "moe." Current concern is how to stop running into males randomly.----Content Advisory: Recommended Ages 16 (Strong Language and Slight Mention of Death)Play Time: 30 minutes???CREDITS:StoryCodeArt by Tsun-AngeliqueLogo, UI by m.Sound Effects by ObseydianXMusic by maodamashii and Kevin MacleodCastilian Spanish Translation by Julia ContothanassisFrench Translation byApollinePortuguese Translation by VignettSpecial Thanks to NiAsobu, foleso, ingthing, Artic Fox, WoLoLoiK and many others on DevTalk!You can follow Tsundere Studio's other projects here:https:discord.ggzZe4QPaRg8https:twitter.comStudioTsundere
