About This Game

Something lurks in the Umbral Forest, its wicked tendrils snaking out to reshape the very woods themselves. Is this the beast Israh Almasi seeks to hunt and slay for the sake of his dying son? Or something even darker and more sinister than he ever could have imagined?

Meanwhile, a mysterious man has made himself at home at Israh’s campsite. He calls himself Nameless… and he only comes at night.

Follow the red star to the Umbral Forest and unravel the mysteries within.

Nameless: The Departed Cycle is a dark fantasy/horror visual novel featuring a prominent male/male romance. Make choices to determine Israh's fate, and strive to survive -- perhaps even slay -- the monster stalking the Umbral Forest.

A magical dark fantasy narrative comprised of over 20,000+ words. Make choices to determine the fates of Israh and Nameless, and unlock five unique endings -- four bad, and one 'true.'

Wholly original artwork including six backgrounds, three unlockable in-game illustrations, and five unique character sprites with multiple variations.

A rich audio experience, including an original soundtrack which sets the tone with multiple haunting and fantastical scores, plus partial and key line voice acting for the leading characters.

Gay men.
