“I really did love my experience with Bad Faith. Was it enjoyable? It was like watching someone get ready pull out my teeth individually. But like, I liked watching them get ready to do it! Let's not unpack that.”

“[Bad Faith] is such a raw, sincere and striking story... It felt so honest in its depiction of what close to complete ostracization can bring people to do.”

“Bad Faith is definitely in my top ten visual novels!... I don't regret playing it. I will be coming back to play this over and over because of how good the execution was.”

About This Game

In a world filled with insanity, the Haven is a sanctuary.

I'm fortunate to be born and raised here.

This is a privilege few have.

I'm happy that I have it.

In the middle of a lake, on an isolated island, lies the Haven.

Made up of several young women and their sole, elderly leader, the Haven is a community that shelters those who are pure of heart and mind.

In order to protect the Haven from the corruption outside of the island, the community hosts Apologia Assemblies: mandatory gatherings where misdeeds are discussed - and given appropriate punishments.

One member, Magda, has complicated feelings about the Haven. She loves living there, but hates its punishments. And so, after one particularly stressful Assembly, Magda wanders through the nearby woods to clear her mind.

Then, she discovers a mysterious building, and her curiosity stirs...

The protagonist of Bad Faith. Magda is a perceptive yet timid young woman who works within the Haven's Art Sect. Because of past events, she tries her best to follow the Haven's strict rules.

A prominent member of the Haven's Writing Sect. Cerise and her stories are highly-regarded, but she acts hostile towards Magda.

The prodigious head of the Haven's Research Sect. Eve is a calm and collected individual whose papers are praised for their promotion of Haven values.
