Soundtrack available and patch plans,

We've released the soundtrack for Walkerman in high-quality .flac files for those interested in supporting our musician, Walker Peterson. All proceeds from soundtrack purchases go to him entirely.

We are also working on a content patch. This content patch before Act 3 is going to expand the Act 2 combat/investigation segment similar to the 1.25 patch for Act 1. This is the final content patch for Act 2, but not the final bugfixing patch.

Patch 2.10

Patch 2.10 fixes numerous bugs and grammatical errors, and adds the option to hide Jorgen's side sprite.

In Patch 2.25 we will be expanding and revamping the combat section for Act 2, which will include more paths through the encounter, as well as making the existing phases of the encounter more varied and interesting.

“Scalemail has set everything up for a compellingly creepy, complex visual novel series that could wind up being a hit”

About This Game

Walkerman is a Visual Novel about hunting supernatural creatures. Each creature obeys a unique set of rules which must be exploited in order to defeat them, in a fashion similar to the old folk tales about vampires and garlic, or werewolves and silver bullets. Each act of Walkerman centers on a creature and the process of investigating it. Players will study the monster in order to ascertain its weaknesses, gather the necessary items, and then confront it in battle. Combat takes place on an isometric, pseudo-board game in which the player selects actions from a list of options. These battle sequences have multiple solutions, depending on the player's collected items and their knowledge of the monster. Players also steer the protagonist through his personal life in a similar fashion: deciding who to trust, where to borrow money, etc which alters how the story progresses.

Prologue: The Thing in the Weald
Jorgen, a nineteen year-old serf, has just embarked upon a peculiar career: monster hunting. As a walkerman, he will tour the streets and alleyways at night, battling supernatural creatures that emerge when the sun goes down. But before he can reach the city-state of Midgard, a chance encounter will send him spiraling headlong into a world beyond light and reason...
Out Now

Act 1: Welcome to Midgard
Jorgen's arrival in Midgard is marked by suspicious characters, perilous nights, and the all-pervading smell of a civilization in decay. Both ostracized and incensed by his countrymen, he raises his standard in the world's loneliest revolution...
Out Now

Act 2: Herdchaser-girl
Jorgen has survived his first contract, but now finds himself trapped between the circumstances of his family, religion, and trade. Hounded by their demands—and another more sinister offer—the young walkerman soon finds assistance in the most unlikely of allies...
Out Now

Act 3: Theories
Surfeited by his surroundings and disillusioned with his trade, Jorgen seeks a new path forward for himself and Midgard. The city-state hosts a few theory-peddlers ready to provide just that, but their medicine might prove worse than the sickness...
