STORY

You play as Alison Hart, a fresh-out-of-college journalism graduate who is shortly employed at an infamous online tabloid. At first, you're not worried—even when you're assigned to investigate six people who are rumored to carry the Spirits of the Zodiacs. It's just a nonsensical tabloid job. Right?


FEATURES
  • 50+ hours of game content. The game holds various branches, bad-ends, and more for replayability.
  • A carefully crafted narrative. As Zodiac•Axis is a story-rich game, the brunt of development effort is focused on crafting the narrative. We're prepared to bring you a riveting, immersive, and heartfelt tale, penned by the lead writer of Lucid9: Inciting Incident.
  • Choices for interactive play. You'll encounter a wide variety of choices. Some affect her articles. Some deepen friendships and relationships. And others keep her from getting killed, which might be kind of important.
  • Gorgeous hand-painted backgrounds, sprites, and CGs. Be immersed in Zodiac•Axis's original worldlore with beautifully rendered artwork at every turn.
  • Lush music. Based on orchestral, jazz, and acoustic preferences, the original soundtrack is specially scored to enhance the atmosphere of each scene.
  • Seamless experience. The UI and complementary graphics are crafted for a minimalistic, intuitive experience.
  • Romance five guys! Not simultaneously.

The demo convinced me to support their campaign! Too bad the cat isn't romanceable but then again there is like a number of romance routes. I really like the concept and characterisations.
