Hey Req fans--

We're on Kickstarter once more for our second game, Chess of Blades! We've been live for a little over a week since our window is shorter this time. If you're interested in all in supporting us, please consider donating and/or sharing with your friends! We really appreciate your help.

New game on Greenlight, Kickstarter, Demo Available!

Hello Requiescence fans --

It's been a little while, but we're super excited to say that our new BL Visual Novel, Chess of Blades, is now on Steam Greenlight! Please visit the page and give us an upvote!

We also launched a Kickstarter with a higher goal than Requiescence, since Chess of Blades has much more art and awesome content. Check it out and pledge or share if you can!

The new game also has a demo available, if you want to see what the hype is all about. It's currently on itch.io, so download it and give it a playthrough!

If you liked Requiescence, we're confident you'll fall in love with COB! The content is much more fast-paced and full of action, and we've learned a lot of valuable lessons from developing Req that we're applying to our new game.

Any support is greatly appreciated! If you want to keep up with our development process, make sure you follow our Twitter and Tumblr for future updates.

With love,

Argent Games

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.
