Jester / King - A new visual novel from the creator of Demonheart!

About

You play the amnesiac jester Madion who woke up next to the king's lifeless body. A curse has fallen upon the kingdom, annihilating almost everyone, and driving the survivors to madness. Madion is torn between seeking the truth, helping the others, and a desire to escape.

From the author of Demonheart comes a new visual novel in a similarly dark setting, dealing with themes of murder, love, trust, and deceit.

Characters


You play as Madion, the jester who has lost his memories. Having been forced into a life of chaos, uncertainty and deceit, Madion starts off in a pretty bad shape, feeling conflicted, jealous and spiteful. He needs to let go of his dark thoughts and redeem himself. You can make choices for him, affecting his relationships with the other characters.

Lady Lucille was forced to live in the king's palace while he waged war on her homeland. Quiet and cunning, she adapted quickly. Lucille believes she understands Madion, and is always there to support him.

An orphan of common origins, Calix received a favorable place in the palace thanks to his good looks and charisma. Some believed he was involved with the king, but Calix's eyes were set elsewhere.

As the king's alchemist, Edwina used to follow His Majesty's every command. She is strict and slightly paranoid, with a cold exterior, but Madion sees a different side of her.

Zeno seems like a straightforward smuggler. He even warns Madion not to trust him. But when the curse strikes the kingdom, he is more reliable than most.
