[Notice] Cheru leaving Playism

Hi All

This is a general notice to all Playism titles.
From June 14th onwards, I (Cheru) will no longer be Playism's community manager. After over 4 years of working passionately in Playism, I have decided to leave and change direction. I am sad that I won't be working and playing with you all as a member of Playism anymore, however, I will still be around on Steam.

Thank you everyone for the amazing communities you have built around Playism games and I hope that you will all continue to enjoy their games for years to come.

- Cheru

About This Game



Welcome to Overture – The capital city of a great empire that has discovered and uses magic in its daily life. Dive into this unique visual novel where you explore the workings of this magical and fantastic city.

But, in a world where magic defines your status, rumors of a revolution are stirring, and the city is uneasy. Already there is unrest and talks of a rogue faction, determined to bring order and equality to the classes.

Follow Elise, Franz and Frederic, all from different walks of life, working towards their different goals, but brought together by one aspect: A broken piano.

In Overture, it's well known that healing magic can’t be used on inanimate objects. So when Elise seeks to do the impossible, a journey of faith, compassion, courage, willpower and intelligence thrusts everyone down an unexpected path.

Is this the beginning of a new magic? Will they reach their goal? And will everyone survive the hidden turmoil of the brewing revolution?

Open yourself to the world of Overture and explore the captivating tale of 120,000 words and 6 different endings. Follow your heart, believe in the strength of hope, and unlock the one true ending.
