Publisher MangaGamer has announced that the Novectacle-developed visual novel Seventh Lair will launch on PC-via Steam and MangaGamer on March 31, 2022.
This visual novel was developed by Novectacle, the same people behind The House in Fata Morgana. The narrative is a sort of spin-off sharing characters, but with a much lighter tone.
Going with a metanarrative spin, Seventh Lair tells a story about the online interactions between an indie game developer and its fans. Michel is a 27-year-old developer who goes by the username Dark†Knight and shares his works on a small website called Royaume Heven. Unfortunately, fan interaction has been filled with trolls and insults, but some people really want to see his next work.
Michel decides to strive for an April Fool’s release, but something weird happens. Suddenly he and the fans end up in the fantasy world of his game and the game is a buggy mess. Together they’ll have to fight and look for a way back, but fans will also show frustration and the raw emotions of their experiences in a much more personal experience than usual. This potential danger might lead them to show their true selves.
