Herald: An Interactive Period Drama – Book I & II is out for PC, Mac & Linux!

Herald is a choice-driven adventure set during colonial times. Board the HLV Herald and uncover its dark secrets in an intriguing tale about tyranny and servitude.

You are Devan Rensburg, a man of mixed heritage living in an alternate 19th century. You were born in the Eastern Colonies – but raised in the West, in the Protectorate’s capital.

In search of your roots, you booked passage on board of the HLV Herald, a ‘Protectorian’ ship set for your country of birth.
During your voyage, news of colonial unrest created tensions between the diverse crew and passengers.

Months later you alone are dragged ashore. No ship, no crew. All that remains is you, your journal and a captain’s coat you were wearing. A mysterious woman is holding you captive and demands you to tell her what happened to ‘your’ ship. What you tell her, is your choice.

Decide Herald’s story before it releases!

Based on the most voted outcome of the first vignette, we have continued Herald’s story in Vignette #2: Louis Morton!

Due to Herald’s release on Thursday the 16th, we have delayed the next video and also allowed people to vote through a poll in the video itself! 😀

Voting ends on Monday the 20th, 11:00 AM GMT.
On Thursday the 23rd we will release a new vignette which will be a direct continuation of the choice with the most votes in total!
