Why should I care about Herald?
Herald is a character driven story centered around the theme of 19th century colonialism. Instead of focusing on the exploration and conquest aspect like most other games set in this time period do, Herald is about identity and personal conflict in a time divided by race, class and religion.
With Herald, we set out to tell a story that has not often been touched upon by games. We aim to give players the opportunity to think about their own position in these conflicts through a choice driven narrative, and perhaps reflect upon their own position in society today.
Herald is a two-part interactive period drama for PC, Mac and Linux that plays as a mix between a visual novel and a 3D point and click adventure game. You are Devan Rensburg, a man of mixed heritage, assigned to work as a steward aboard the merchant ship HLV Herald.
A branching narrative that changes depending on how you choose to play.
A gripping tale about finding your identity in a world divided by race, class and religion.
A beautiful hand-painted art style mixing 2D animated portraits with 3D environments.
A world inspired by historical events that takes place in the final days of the Age of Sail.
A 19th century trading ship full of secrets and mysteries to uncover while you explore.
An interactive period drama with a heavy emphasis on character development.
A story within a story that switches between Devan’s present and his past.
