Requiescence Anniversary (Goodies, SALE!)

Happy Birthday, Req!

Exactly one year ago today, we released our first visual novel into the world – Requiescence! It’s pretty hard to believe; we’ve come a long way since then and learned so much during development that Requiescence seems like a distant memory. Now, as we prepare to release our second game within the next couple of months, the two of us at Argent Games wanted to celebrate Req’s birthday with a few goodies.

For one day only, Requiescence is available at 50% off on Itch.io! If you’ve wanted to give it a try but never had a chance to purchase the game, here’s your golden opportunity! (There is also a Steam Key included, so you can get in your library here as well!)

We’ve also released the character backstories for the very first time. In the game itself, the love interests discuss their own histories to a limited extent, so if you’ve ever been curious about Kaul and Carrault’s spicy past or Damian’s inner turmoil, you can download the free PDF on our Itch page!

Finally, the Requiescence artbook – formerly only attainable through Kickstarter – is now also available on Itch! It contains some sketches and WIPs, along with a few lore tidbits and fun behind-the-scenes snippets.

A giant thank-you to everyone who supported us during Req’s development back in 2016. Without you, we wouldn’t have been able to make Chess of Blades – a project with much more art, voice acting, and higher production quality all around! Req lifted Argent Games off the ground, and we plan to keep improving the quality of our projects with each new release.

About This Game


It's been a year of hard travel, but finally, the young mage Kymil arrives at his destination.

He's a Cyromancer - a spellcaster who wields the power of ice to smite down his enemies. Kymil learned how to harness his power thanks to his uncle, a well-renowned adventurer who hunted down treasure on every corner of the continent.

But his uncle was murdered in his home by an unknown assailant, and Kymil is driven to uncover the mystery behind his death. The only clue he has is an unfinished entry in his uncle's notes about a mysterious cathedral in the middle of the sprawling Dead Plains...

When he arrives at the cathedral, Kymil has no idea what he's searching for or where to go. But something in him presses him forward, and he's determined to figure out the cathedral's secrets, no matter how dire the cost.


  • 125,000 word novel -- 10-15 hours of gameplay!
  • Unique hybrid of Western and Anime-style art -- 17 CGs and 13 Characters with unique expressions!
  • Interactivity -- 3 different romance routes with 6 total endings!
  • Partial English voice acting!
  • Full original soundtrack -- 13 tracks total


Requiescence is a visual novel - a 2D narrative-based game that presents the user with important choices to alter the story's path. Primarily a story of action and adventure, Requiescence features three prominent romance routes that significantly change the later portions of the game.

The game is also a BL (boy's love) game, which means both the main character and the love interests are male.

If you're familiar with Nitro+CHiRAL games (Togainu no Chi, Lamento, DRAMAtical Murder, Sweet Pool), then you know how amazing a story can become when you mingle an epic adventure with intricate character relationships. Requiescence is heavily inspired by these games and aims for a similar style, while still putting a fresh twist on the BL genre.
