Room: ONYX (Lincoln, Upper) Rated: Everyone


Produced By: Pixels and Pins Studio

Speaking: Ashe Thurman

With access to newer tools and resources for indie game developers, a new generation of visual novels is on the rise that takes inspiration from but delightfully departs from its Japanese forebears.
