Description

Arcadia Fallen is a lighthearted Roleplaying experience with bright anime-aesthetics that doesn't pull its punches when it comes to matters of the heart or live and death. It features a dramatic yet optimistic story wherein everyone is flawed, but no one is defined by their flaws.

When a young alchemist apprentice is unwillingly bound to an illegal spirit, they suddenly find themselves drawn into a war between humanity and magic, and must join a group of unlikely heroes to escape their own doom, hopefully saving the world along the way.

Experience a Modern Fantasy Visual Novel, where your choices shape the personality of your character. Will you be shy, bold, or the one forever making jokes?

History

The world of Arcadia Fallen was originally conceived by Mette, who combined gorgeous Japanese-inspired anime aesthetics with enchanting Scandinavian storytelling. Accompanied by Daniel and Jesper, she sought to create a game that was about people rather than characters; where you are encouraged to be who you want to be, instead of who you need to be, in order to "win" the game.
