“This is one time where a budget game is a better use of money than buying Steam market items. Go ahead and see what awaits at the true ending of the game.”

“If you love stories that start out meh but then gradually evolve into weirdville; which is probably its true name... Then this is one for the ages”
9/10 – DaRevieweD

“The story is amazing and the twist of an ending is entirely worth seeing.”

About This Game

Karisvale is a narrative-driven top-down mystery game where you assume the role of Shaymus O’Malley, a seasoned detective who has been summoned by the mayor of Karisvale to find a missing citizen. You must explore the town of Karisvale, question its citizens, and piece together what exactly is going on in this uncanny game.

A Plethora of Interesting Characters, Each with Unique Motives

Every citizen features branching dialogue paths that allow you to form your own conclusions in this gripping, cryptic narrative. Karisvale tells a non-linear story and it is up to you to piece it together.

Unravel the Lore Through Collectibles

Exploring Karisvale will net you hidden Dead Flowers that contain information on the history of where they were found. Find Dead Flowers in hidden rooms, through puzzles, and by talking to the townsfolk. I wonder what might happen if you collect them all...
