A weekly web visual novel title “Grimm & Tonic: Last Call” from a Jamaican Game developer, that follows the residents of the fictional city of New Eden. New scenes released every Friday.
A Visual Novel is unlike its written counterpart. It takes you on an interactive journey using cool graphics (Photos/video) and sounds to enhance the storytelling experience.
What is Grim & Tonic?
Episode one is already out and titled “on the rocks”. I won’t be the one to spoil the intro hence all that I can tell is it starts in the Fictional city of New Eden and takes you through the experience of an unknown character who has a soulless existence only to be confronted by death with a proposition which places him on a journey.
What’s “Last Call“?
You wake up one evening to find Death drinking tea while sitting on your sofa. Broke, friendless and apparently soul-less, He offers you a temporary job at the premiere, local, shady hole-in-the-wall, DEAD-END.
Maintaining a healthy Work-Life balance is pretty tricky on a good day but it’s damn near impossible when your boss threatens foreclosure on your mortal existence. As the new bartender at DEAD-END, you’ll make new friends, mix weird drinks, all while navigating Life, Death and everything in between.
Visual Novels much like their text counterparts are available in the genres of Fantasy, Action, Romance, Horror and Satire just to name a few.
You can find thousands of Visual novels on both steam and Indie Developer Platform, itch.io. Steam has a wide cross selection of over a thousand visual novels while Itch.io has a much wider collection over 2,763 entries.
So what are you waiting for?
I personally look forward to the proceeding Episode of Grimm & Tonic: Last Call and wonder how far this tale will take us.
