Help us reach Full VA Stretch Goal in Love Esquire's Kickstarter!

In case you're not aware, our second game, Love Esquire is currently on Kickstarter. Our campaign is ending in 5 days, and we're now chasing after one of our highly coveted stretch goals: Full English Voice Acting.

Some of Love Esquire's VA were also from The Letter, such as Amanda Lee (who voiced Isabella Santos), Steven Kelly (who voiced Johannes Schrocken), and Jason Marnocha (who voiced Father Norman, Chief Inspector Lee and Bartender G). Meanwhile, Amber Lee Connors (who voiced Hannah Wright) is our VO director.

The rest of our cast have also been in high-profile projects, including “My Hero Academia,” “Dragon Ball Z,” “One Piece,” “Street Fighter V,” “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” and “Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy.”

Our Full VA goal sits at $60k USD. As of writing, we're $13k USD away from it, and with just 5 days left, we need all the help we can get.

You can find more information about Love Esquire in our Kickstarter page. You can get a copy of the game for $14.99 USD (compared to its retail price of $19.99 USD). If this is your cup of tea, please consider supporting us!

“I do not hand out a review score of ten lightly. I've only ever given one, and this will be the second. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with The Letter, and I am certain it is not over just yet.”
10/10 – Rely on Horror

“The Letter is a terrifying labor of love, and I’m incredibly grateful that I backed it.”

“Did you ever get one of those chain text messages? During my high school years, they became so pervasive that they were more annoying than scary. Horror visual novel The Letter changes all that.”

About This Game


This game deals with mature themes. It shows scenes that some may find disturbing, unethical and triggering. It also contains offensive language, racial slurs, sexual themes, gore and violence. Player discretion is advised.


The Letter is an interactive, horror/drama visual novel inspired by classic Asian horror films, Ju-ON: The Grudge and The Ring. Told through an immersive branching narrative, the game puts the players into the shoes of seven characters as they find themselves falling prey to a vicious curse plaguing the Ermengarde Mansion for centuries.

In this game, your choices will shape and drive the story forward: will you mend a relationship on the verge of collapse, or will you let it fall apart? Will you risk saving them, despite the consequences, or leave them to die a gruesome death? The fate of all the characters is in your hands.


  • This is a hardcore visual novel. Expect a lot of reading!

  • Non-chronological storytelling with seven chapters, spanning over 700,000 words across all routes.
  • Seven playable characters with varying personality and approach to difficult situations.
  • Countless butterfly effects; your choices heavily affect the story.
