Welcome to Anthos City.



For a time, it was just a simple town like any other.
With (formerly) nine districts, that despite its noticeable flaws, worked quite well in harmony.
Then, something changed.
A strange disease called The Silence came to the city, attaching itself to all its citizens.
The disease slowly kills its victims and sometimes transforms them into horrible abominations.
Alongside it, a strange figure arrived with it.
Some people of Anthos have perished from the disease. Others started to praise the strange figure like some sort of god, saying that is a messiah that came to bring the end of everything.
And there are those who got even more miserable fates.

Some time has passed after that, and the city became radio-silent.
The surrounding communities sent people to investigate, but, for some reason, they never returned.
That's where you come in.

You are The Listener.
Taking a train to Anthos by demand of your superiors at The Department, you are now tasked to investigate what happened.
The city notices your arrival, however.
Now, it won't let you leave.

Promptly, it's up to you to make the best of your situation.
Try and save the city? Maybe escape from it?

You choose.

All there is to know is that Anthos had seen better days.

New People Onboard!

Hello.

I'm happy to announce that I have two new people working on the game with me right now.
One of them is creating a new, fresh soundtrack for the game (maybe we can retire the "SOME original soundtrack" part soon), and the other one is doing concept arts, battle illustrations, and character portraits.
Maybe in the foreseeable future, we will have some really nice news on the progress of the game. Maybe.

I welcome Victoren, the audio designer and Marcel Takeshi, the character concept artist and illustrator.


Thank you for your patience. If you want to get more information about the game's development, you can always enter the game's discord server.

Cheers.

Below the four screenshots, there are the game details (developer, engine, genre...), right? If in between the game details and screenshots aren't the words Hiatus or Cancelled, then you know that the game is probably still in production.
