About The Game

Book of Zhu: Legacy is a (completely free) visual novel starring Aya, princess, martial artist, and future empress of the Zhu empire, who will find herself faced with the reality of what the future holds for her. The world depicted in-game is inspired by Wuxia films, as well as anime such as Fist of the North Star, Kenichi, and Katanagatari, and is being painstakingly brought to life by my team and I for this Visual Novel and beyond. Over the course of the game you will experience firsthand the upper class of society within the country of Zhu, glimpses of the larger world, and of course many martial arts battles.

Here is a short demo showing the main character and what she will be like at the start of the game/her relationship with her mother and her bodyguard. Download[]

The game will follow a central storyline focusing on Aya and how her life starts to change over the course of about a year, with differing choices available that change the details presented during the story and what aspects of the world come into focus. It will focus on her life as she begins to take more responsibility and has to deal with the various friends and foes inherited from the current Empress. Along with the political struggles is the fact that as heir to the family fighting style, a whole different side of trouble seeks her out just as they did her predecessor. Meeting many new friends and facing new rivals she partakes in a journey of self-discovery as she tries to find out how to balance the need to become the woman she wants to be while still honoring the ones who came before her.

In addition to the central storyline there are several side paths focusing on specific characters that are mostly determined by who you spend the most time with and whose story you progress the most during the early parts of the game, though some alternate versions of paths are triggered by hidden flags and events. Some of these will be romantic in focus, but others will allow you to see different sides of various characters, experience different aspects of the world, as well as different fight sequences.

Help Aya grow into both a martial arts master and a proper empress.
