Independent developer Volutian Design is thrilled to announce the Steam Early Access release of their debut title, the multi-season episodic visual novel Gods of the Twilight. In a dystopian future on the brink of Ragnarök, ancient magic resurfaces as the past returns to help shape an uncertain future.
What Gods of the Twilight is?
Adventuring on the city-ship of New Reykjavík and beyond, players embody dual protagonists Althea and Farkas, reincarnated deities who must navigate their own roles in the final days of the world as they know it. Utilizing their newfound abilities, each character will need to evade high-tech cultists, uncover ancient truths, and get a handle on their supernatural selves, all as Ragnarök approaches. Whether they work together or operate individually…that’s for the player to decide.
As each chapter unfolds, Althea and Farkas will discover their pivotal roles, developed by player choices, as the end of the world draws closer. Interdependent choices play off of each other and carry over between chapters, adding greater importance to every interaction with the game’s richly designed NPCs from every corner of society – including military intelligence officers, bartenders, billionaires, and the protagonists’ childhood friends. The world they know can’t last forever, but player choices determine when and how it will end – and what, if anything, will take its place.
Gods of the Twilight sees players cultivate diverse relationships through captivating narratives and thought-provoking decisions as they advance through the fully voice-acted story. Players will decide whether to build friendships, compare rivals, or even foster romantic connections, including between the main characters. Strengthened by its fully voice-acted dialogue from a roster of experienced talent, Gods of the Twilight weaves a deeply intricate narrative that will leave players wanting more each season.
