A downloadable game

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

Dead Wishes embarks on a journey of human emotion, empathy, and horrific romance. Take the time to unravel each character's backstory while using their experiences to examine your own moral code. 

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. This page will be updated periodically as features are added.

  • 12 character routes 
  • 200,000+ words of in-game text
  • Partial character voicing

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!
