About This Game

“This is a love poem. I wrote it with a scalpel.”

- Graffiti outside the former home of Marie Laveau, The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans.


Beyond the Veil is a text-based narrative horror game, with a focus on character-driven storytelling.

Kara, an unemployed college dropout, has no choice but to move in with her Dad when he decides to relocate to New Orleans.

Kara has no discernible skills, and no direction. It's her exploration of this city, and the friendships she makes there, that will mold her into the woman she will become.

These choices are yours. So step up to the threshold- from here, there is no turning back.

  • Experience stories based on the rich history of New Orleans, from the spirituality of Louisiana Voodoo and the ghosts of Jackson Square, to the myths of the Casket Girl Vampires and the heinous acts of Madame LaLaurie.
  • Choose one of three companions to guide you through New Orleans: Tye, the gutter-punk musician, Al, the happy-go-lucky walking tour guide, and Esther, the creole vodouisant.
  • Choose a path that will allow you to experience up to three entirely separate horror stories, with thousands of pathways and over 18 different endings. Explore all three to unlock the fourth and final story.
  • Explore a branching narrative, where every choice you make alters both the story, and Kara's personality. Choose how Kara responds to the world around her, from dialogue and exploration options, to 'sliding doors' choices that will determine how the story unfolds.
  • The choices you make will have an effect on one of Kara's personality traits: Empathy, Jealousy, Honesty, Belief and Happiness. By making choices that increase or reduce the level of Kara's traits, you will craft a personality for Kara which is unique to your experience.
