This is the first chapter of the story and you can play it for free. You can find the full game here.

This is a story of two magi, Vyn and Ilar, who find themselves trapped in a collapsing tower with their only hope for salvation being a difficult ritual. Or at least that is what Ilar tells you. The thing is - you don’t remember anything, and Ilar’s story makes less and less sense the closer you are to the ritual. Are they hiding things to protect you from the bitter truth, or are they deceiving you for some more nefarious reason? 

Guide Vyn’s actions to death and beyond and uncover Ilar’s truth. Are they your colleague, lover or something completely different? Read between the lines of what they are telling you, explore your surroundings for clues and use hands-on deduction to break the vicious circle and set them free.

This Interactive fiction/visual novel hybrid is made by two people - Ze and Nim and it is our very first game! It features hand drawn illustrations, animated scenes and an original soundtrack, all working together to immerse you into the world of Tal’Dun.

The game includes descriptions of sexual themes, violence, blood, physical and mental abuse, self harm, death, and suicide. Characters are going through emotional struggle and are dealing with a life threatening situation.  If you are sensitive to some of this content please proceed  with care. Recommended to a mature audience.
