A downloadable game

In this chaotic world, you must adapt - either to forgive or survive. 

Dead Wishes embarks on a journey of humanity and horrific romance. We build each other up. We tear each other down. Give and take. How much will you endure? At what point will you declare it enough?


After the death of your parents, you move cities to begin a new life. However, the burden of their deaths weighs you down, and you find yourself holed up in your dingy apartment, sluggish, apathetic, and on the verge of eviction. 

Dead Wishes features various subplots that are woven between character routes. In order to experience all of what the game has to offer, the player must read through every route and piece the stories together. 


This game is still in development, though we have a free demo available. 

  • 12 character routes: 6 men and 6 women
  • 210,000+ words of in-game text
  • Partial character voicing
  • They/them player pronouns
  • 350+ Choices and 35+ Endings

Hello VIOLET, any there any restrictions of people being able to perform a let's play/playthrough of Dead Wishes? ^o^

Hi! We don't mind let's plays of the game! We welcome your reactions :)

The only thing we have reservations about are straight walkthroughs of the game (showing players all the right answers). We'd rather that people didn't give away all the fun. ; )

Hello! Will the mc be customizable? Can I create female mc?

Hi! Right now the player character's pronouns are they/them, but we are trying to add pick-your-pronouns as a feature. There are not sprites for the player character. Hope that answers your question!
