About This Game

From the minds of brand new Indie developers Daisy Lock and Tallewellyn Comics

Fort Valen is a short murder mystery story completed as part of a university project in which you play as a young adult Vishara Vakricustos attempting to solve the sudden killings of the guards around the fort she calls home. The main problem? Her mother: The Matron of Fort Valen.

After being injured at a young age Vishara has been kept within the walls of the fort which makes searching for evidence a considerable amount more difficult. Doing what young adults do best, and with the help of a spiritual companion who has been in her family for generations, Vishara must sneak from the fort to find some inkling of who is killing the guards before they can get to her mother... maybe then she might let you leave the fort.

The game is a Visual Novel spanning around 2-5 hours depending on reading speed and choices. Your choices within the game can lead to a variety of bad ends and one canonical ending! Collect clues and build character relationships throughout the game, working towards that final accusation.
