Reviews

“Ori Mees did a superb job with Blake: The Visual Novel. The story is compelling, the choices feel real, and the consequences will have you trying the game again once it’s done.”
Metacritic Score: 100 – Digital Chumps

“Overall, Blake left me wanting more and hoping we do. If that is not a good sign of a good story and good game, I don’t know what is.”
Metacritic Score: 90 – GameSpace

“A story about mental health, violence, and destructive behavior — this game is creator Ori Mees’ creative debut and is a fantastically crafted one at that. Featuring surprising twists and revelations you won’t believe, this is a compelling choice-based psychological thriller of a game.”
Metacritic Score: 80 – Hey Poor Player

About This Game

Developer's Note: Please be aware that the game was originally intended to be episodic.
Sadly, I'm not able to continue the story as planned, because of this, the game's narrative has open ends and unresolved mysteries that I'd hoped to reveal later down the line. Although the story is incomplete, I hope you enjoy the first and only episode! Blake: The Visual Novel was my passion project as a solo dev and an amazing experience for me to create, it's something I will cherish forever and means a lot to me to share with you as a free experience for all! :) Thank you, Ori
