Play Dear Devere

 

Reviews

“All in all, Dear Devere is a delightfully enchanting story, masterfully written and executed. I don’t say this often, but, this game is absolutely perfect from start to finish, and I highly recommend playing it when you have the chance. Get caught up in Angela and Devere’s story, and uncover a little bit of magic.”

“There are so many things about “Dear Devere” I want to praise, which makes it hard for me to start this article. Do I start with applauding the strong worldbuilding and dialogue writing skills of Jasmine Osler? Or should I rather point out the congenial voice acting for the two lead characters, realized by Chintarmanya Vivian as Angela Bard and Mike Young as Mr. Devere? Perhaps I could pass one or two compliments to Paul Robins, the creator of the beautiful soundtrack? Or wait, maybe I could begin by swooning over the well-crafted illustrations for each envelope, that either act as visual, synoptic symbols for the actual scene or as mystical foreshadowings for upcoming events? I am unsure.”
Game Curator

“This game was so enjoyable and unique. The writing is done really well, and you WILL feel attached to Angela and Devere. Their romance is adorable, and the letter correspondence really fleshed out their characters in ways that I’m not sure showing actual sprites would have done.”

About This Game

Dear Devere is a visual novel told through letters.

"I suppose I should start with a short summary of my life. I don't really feel like doing that, so I shall skip to the present."

The year is 1935. It all started with a single letter. But from that point on, nothing would remain the same for Angela Bard--a quiet, solitary woman living in the Scottish isles.

Much to her surprise, she receives a mysterious and strangely esoteric reply from an unexpected source...

Who is Devere? And how can he be sending letters from the forest at the edge of Angela's town?

Read through their illustrated correspondence, and watch their story unfold.
