Leviathan is a truly great adventure game/visual novel. With a wealth of reading - both to flesh out the world, and bring the characters and plot to life, it's one of my favourite VNs of all time after playing it. The storyline should really be played fully without any spoilers - with branching events, side quests that are optional, multiple endings, and a in-built morality system that is both a part of and seperate from meaningful choices (your choices can have weight regardless of getting you 'bad points' or subtracting from them) - it's a real treat of choose-your-own-adventure writing.

The art style grew on me quickly, is quite charming, well-done, and lends itself well to the atmosphere - not just for the characters either. The gorgeous and gritty backgrounds and locations are splendidly well illustrated (and animated, in some cases!) and it engaged my imagination in the way some of my favourite authors have, like Michael Moorcock or Raymond E Feist. The first person narrative itself is reminiscient of a protagonist like Shiki Tohno from Tsukihime, a mixture of youth and bravado with a certain reserved nature and observant attitude. Easily relateable while being his own character, Oliver was a great protagonist for the game.

The music is indeed, amazing despite being a relatively small track. Peaceful, intriguing, or thrilling, it nails the feeling of each scene everytime. There is no voice acting, but I feel like it was not truly required - I am quite used to my visual novels being read, not read to me, and those that do have voice acting have been few and far between for me.

All in all, this game's developers really pushed it to get an english from russian translation, and I am so glad they did. Two kickstarters for it failed quite badly - and publicity for this wonderful game is quite low. It was a real diamond in the rough, a bit of a chance buy when I grabbed it, but I was more entertained than I ever thought I could be. A definite high quality purchase.

Interesting world, nice graphics, feels like old-school point-and-click adventure mixed with Japanese interactive novel. However, the story is very unclear, lots of plotholes, pretty dumb main character (even if he is a teenager) and pointless small side-quests. When you finish the game, almost nothing is explained, characters completely change their behavior. The strength of these types of games is the immersion, which this game tries to build up, but completely misses.

A narrative/visual novel adventure game that I'm very happy to see finally released on Steam--a fact I'm hoping will give it some much-needed exposure.

The script is very well-written, the characters are deep, the choices made throughout the story have significant consequences, the art style is incredible and the story itself is surprisingly complex and full of ethical quandaries.

This is one of those rare indie gems where you can see a metric F-ton of love was put into it by its developers.

If you're a fence-sitter, the first chapter/episode is available on its official website. Give it a try, get hooked and fall in love with a very unqiue setting.

I honestly can't recommend this game enough.

Here's hoping the developers go on to do great things and that this universe will continue to exist in future games.

Leviathan is an extremely unique visual novel, with a detailed story and deep world building.

The visuals are very well done, with detailed scenery, charming pop outs and animated transitions, and animated story board elements. Even the menu design builds on the world in the story.

The music and audio feels bang on. Right at the opening credits, the music builds a dark but comic atmosphere.

One minor complaint I have is that wayfinding would be very hard without toggling on the hot point overlay. Fortunately you can toggle this one and off very easily without leaving the scene.

If you enjoy visual novels, I highly recommend checking this out!

This is one of the best adventure games I have had the privelage of playing in quite some time. Its spit into five chapters similar to any of the telltale games with three of the chapters currently released in english. Its worth noting that the first chapter is relativley short when compared to chapters two and three and acts as a long intro.

Its a story driven game heavy on text (so put on your reading glasses), the art style is fantastic (similar to Cinders or much of the Darkeye stuff) and the setting is wondefully eclectic. The cast of characters are all well crafted and by the end of chapter three all were very well fleshed out. I wont spoil the story but to say its an investigation based thriller with plenty of character interaction and dialogue.

The experience contains some light puzzle elements and some side quests which I find unusual for this style of game, seperating it from the linear visual novels also found in this genre. I also felt the decisions I made had consequences and was suprised to discover death or failure was in fact possible. The illusion of choice and "magicians choices" are often a problem for me in these types of games, but I genuinley felt that I was having an impact on the world and its characters. Incidentally the game does have a morality system which I wont go into but rest assured your actions do indeed have "consequences".

I highly recommend this game to anyone interested in adventure and or visual novels and considering the amount of garbage that comes out of greenlight its good to see something awesome for a change. The one criticism that I can make is the grammar and typos in the english translation of the game, certainly not enough to dissuade me from recommending it but they are obvious. I personally can overlook such problems and did not find them frequently enough to cause me frustration.

I truly hope this game is a commercial success for the devs and receives the attention it deserves I would love to see more from this studio in the future and eagerly await the release of the next chapter.

What a pleasant surprise that game was! Really enjoyed the story, setting and unique art. Dont be fooled by screenshots may which remind you any generic "hidden object" game. This game is pure visual novel! Okay, not pure since there are point&click-anventure elements, but this makes game even better. Oh and 18+ rating is not just for show. Your dialogue choices matters and define the ending you'll get. Story, however, is not fully "completed", ending does not feel completly satisfying. and there's a lot room to explore both in story and in the world. Definetly looking forward for sequel which, hopefully, will be released soon, in february.

A genuine Dark Theme Visual Novel with a combination of point and click adventure.
The story takes place in a world different from us.

Pros :
+ Wonderful Artstyle
+ Fantastic Story
+ Nice Puzzle
+ Atmospheric world and setting

Normal :
+- English translation a bit clunky (for me it's really good as English is not my native language)

Con :
- Not all episodes are out for now (still 4 of 5 eps)

For everyone who loves adventure point & click or Visual Novel with Dark Theme you should try this game. Early in game (when you're a kid) feels kinda boring, but later after you grow up, things become very interesting and engaging.

Can't wait for the 5th episode.

Excellent game!

I am not a fan of 'visual novels', but 'Leviathan' has much more in common with story-rich adventures than with 'anime-styled' novels that give you walls of texts to read and little to none interactivity.

The visuals are quite good, and the deep story is even better - the world of the game is unique and intriguing and all the characters leave memorable impressions. Yes, you have to click a lot to read and proceed, but there is fully functional inventory, and even some notions of non-linearity, including side-quests.

Probably, the only drawback is that the game is actually in 'early access' for now - the last chapter that promises to answer all the questions and to tie all ends, is still not available... I can't wait!

And even in its current state the game could still be fun and should definitely be recommended.

9.2/10 - I Bought a Visual Novel; I Got So Much More!

I'm glad I found this one; it’s easily one of the best visual novels I’ve ever played. The story is quite good and the campaign will last you anywhere from 9-15 hours! This game brilliantly utilizes choices matter in conjunction with some point and click and exploration elements.

This psychological thriller isn't for kids; it's a complex, dirty and riveting detective game that unfolds in front of your eyes. You are Oliver, a boy who for the last 10 years has been piecing together clues to track down his mother's murderer; the events that follow will captivate you until the very final chapter.

There are very little videos or help guides online so make sure to take your time with things, and save every so often. This isn't your typical visual novel and you can stray off course and hit a dead end if you aren't careful! This really makes it fun though, you have to become the detective and investigate everything.

It's worth the full $15 for sure! I see on sale and in bundles often though!

5 small chapters with a few secrets (look achievements) and some little changing story text ways to read, that all end up a bit to linear (dead or forward). Sad but the story is good and unique, sure its not epic, but play it yourself. For the game length could be longer (i play chapter 1-5 2 times) for 15 euros its a bit to much. Get a discount, but for visual novel fans that look for story and not graphic, this game is worth to buy it with a high discount (=>70%). I give for truth visual novel fans 73 % (i like it even more 84 % personally). Thx 4 reading.

Visual novel with casual point&click element and rich story.

I don't even like visual novels and this was really addictive, which means it's a really good visual novel.

A game that had a lot of potential, but falls short in almost every way and leaves for a rather disappointing experience on reflection.


The game starts off incredibly well and has a good opening sequence that leaves you wondering how the game will develop. Unfortunately, it all mostly goes down hill from there. The game introduces far too many interesting background elements that are left in the dust and ultimately never explored. Even its main plot lines are not satisfactory concluded and the ending in particular is a short disappointment. If you get the 'best' ending, absolutely none of the plot lines were resolved, great huh?

It feels as if the game tried to do much, and fails to intergrate the background elements it introduces with the main plot in almost any way. Despite being called 'The Last Day of the Decade', the Decade itself is just a background element with almost no relevance to the plot. And what's disappointing is that all of these were very interesting and exciting elements if they were incorporated. They just weren't.


They're okay. Darina and Julia are fairly good characters, but everybody else is chronically underdeveloped. Oliver (the protagonist) struggles from the writers trying to tell you how you should think about certain situations. Is the point of a visual novel not supposed to be that you figure this out for yourself?


It's playable, but it clearly wasn't proofread or edited. There are clearly lines that make absolute zero sense in English, and it feels like subtext is lost from the poor translation and it can be a struggle to figure out the relevance of some of the conversations you end up having.


Cute, but it doesn't really get any points here. It's a visual novel though, so it's not like it's bad.



A below average visual novel, and the only reason I rate it that highly is because of the potential the game had. I enjoyed the time I spent on it, but I got it for 90% off, and I would absolutely not recommend it for the price it is.

I was torn between negative and positive. But after some thought, i cannot recommend the game before it gets some better translations: At certain points it gets really confusing. And in a game that doesn't have much but the story, is not a good thing.

This game reminded me of Tormentum - Dark Sorrow and not in a good way. I even checked to see if it was the same developers but apparently not. Tormentum and Leviathan share some art styles as well as a very preachy narrative.
I can't say I really enjoyed it but I did play through it three times just trying to make sense out of everything.
The game seems decent enough as you get started but the morality of the game consistently baffles me. You discover the your guardian murdered your mother, bought you, and molested you as a child but the game implies you simply forgive them. Your best friend confesses to a murder you comitted and then blames you for putting him in jail. However as far as I can tell you have no options at all to make different choices. Your friend just confesses and there seems nothing you can do about it. These events just happen and the game tries to make you feel responsible for them which is confusing and baffling to me. The game is extremely preachy and it feels like most of the decisions you make don't matter in the grand scheme of things. The game frequently stops in its tracks to TELL you how you're supposed to feel about certain people and events. The translation is pretty bad and the writing in general feels pretty poor. The game gets kind of soft core pervy in a few places but it seems more awkward than sexy. Lots of things are introduced but few are developed and after playing through the game twice, I got only a slight variation on the ending.
This game was quite literally baffling to me and at the end I found myself wondering what exactly I'd accomplished.
