A Kickstarter campaign for ARISEN: Chronicles of Var'Nagal is set to begin on September 15 to fund their new mature-themed story-driven RPG.

If you’re interested in checking it out, you can actually download the prologue now on Steam. Coming to PC as of right now, ARISEN: Chronicles of Var'Nagal is a narrative role playing game containing hand-drawn aesthetics in which you will have to take on the role of a slave who will embark on an adventure to seek liberty.

Set on the island of Maccialatt, the game allows you to shape the personality of your character using the “Emotion” cards (Fear, Sorrow, Disgust, Anger, Joy) as you speak with different kinds of people. The purpose of the Kickstarter is to help the developers at Maratus Games achieve more funds to cover the costs related to the production and development.

Key features include:

  • Take decisions that will impact the world around you in a more and more dire way, the further you progress in the story.
  • Shape the personality of your character choice after choice with “Emotion” cards (Fear, Sorrow, Disgust, Anger, Joy).
  • Replay and try to obtain every existing ending.
  • Enjoy a captivating original soundtrack.
