Horror Visual Novel ‘Historia’ Gets Free Demo for PC and Development Update

Lucid A96 released a demo for their doujin horror visual novel Historia, in development for PC.

The demo, titled “Scene 1”, gives players a preview of the game’s setting and characters. Although short, the demo sets up a nice cliffhanger for what’s to come when the game launches. At this time, the developer is aiming to launch “Act 1” of the game in August around Summer Comiket.

In a blog post, Lucid A96 lets visual novel fans know that the development of Historia is entirely volunteer ran, and no one on staff is working on the game full time. Furthermore, the game is self-funded and only asks for donations; however, the demo is free. Historia will launch as a paid game.

Historia is set in the town of Penrith, Australia. Evidently, the small town that everyone is trying to leave has awoken a monster, and it’s up to a group of students to try and put a stop to it.

Historia’s demo is available now for PC, Linux, and Mac. Clicking the link will begin downloading the game.

Author’s take: I enjoy finding these small visual novel teams who are putting loads of time into creating something that they enjoy. I can’t wait to see the final product.
