What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access to Steam can help us expand the player community and bring more fun to our players with more content. We plan to keep in touch with the community to create an interesting game. For us, the opinion of the players and early access is important as a place where players can influence the game.
For the game "The Niflhel Day” we have assembled a new AADEA Team, at the early access stage the game will be published by Dnovel studio.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“From three months to one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In the final version of the game, in addition to the full English version, translations into other languages will be added, as well as animation of all scenes!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Now the game version is available in two languages - Russian and English.

The Russian version of the story is presented in full — all possible scenarios and endings, all available art and music - all of this are available in Russian right now!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to raise the price when the full version of the game is released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Early access is important for us as a place where players can influence the game. At the moment, a preliminary version with one story is available.

About This Game

"The Niflhel Day" is a visual novel in which you will have a night walk through the forest. It would seem that what can go wrong? Unless, of course, you are going on a journey on a summer northern night, when the border between the real world and navya, the world of the dead, is as thin as ever. Who can you believe when it seems that you are lost and you will never get out of the forest of your own doubts? But even more importantly – is it worth believing yourself in this situation? Take a closer look at your feet, decide who your friends are, make a choice and, perhaps, you will see the dawn.

In this fascinating and mysterious adventure, you are waiting for:
  • seven different endings
  • atmospheric illustrations that immerse you in the heart of the night misty forest
  • the plot is based on Slavic folk folklore
  • ... and a cat!
