Perceptions of the Dead 2 - new game release

Hey all~
Our little indie studio, Ithaqua Labs, just released a new game to Steam!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/817860/Perceptions_of_the_Dead_2/

It's a goofy, spooky story that follows a live-streamer in her search for a ghost hunter.

It features a few familiar voices from the Book of Gray Magic series that you may recognize, as well as lovely music from Johnathan Johnson.

With this game release, we hope to spend some time going back to Brilliant Shadows and Pale Spectrum and doing a bit of maintenance in the coming months, so stay tuned!

About This Game

Brilliant Shadows is a visual novel that follows the story of Veronica Ashmar, a new graduate of the Mountain and a necromancer. Tradition dictates that upon graduation, necromancers and paladins are to perform the pairing ritual. Binding together one of each type of mage, entwining their lives and powers with another and sealing their fates together with a matching mark upon their primary hands.

Those that succeed and become paired go on as full mages, those that do not are considered nothing more than hedge mages. There are no exceptions and the ritual has never failed…

Until the day Ash receives a mark and no fellow graduate to match it.

Now she must discover the origin of her mark and attempt to solve the greatest magical mystery that the Mountain has ever known.



Brilliant Shadows – Part 1 of the Book of Gray Magic is 57,023 words long, estimated at 3-6 hours of game play depending on read speed.

There are 3 different endings depending on your choices, as well as a few larger branch options within the story.

Plus, the main character is a lesbian necromancer who specializes in undead plants!

All spoken lines are fully voice acted, and the game features an extensive original soundtrack with 25 awesome songs.
