A Story Beside coming early 2019

Hello everyone!
I wanted to post a quick update about the status of A Story Beside and when you can expect to play. After a lengthy internal struggle I've decided to push the release date back into early 2019. I know this will come as a disappointment, so I'm truly sorry and ask for your patience approaching this final stretch.



Rest assured this was not an easy decision to make! My goal has always been to complete and release the game in 2018, and at this point I'm operating on a shoe-string budget... but ultimately I believe the delay will lead to a richer story and a more polished end product. I've been working on A Story Beside for several years now — this project is incredibly close to my heart and one I'm extremely proud of. I wouldn't want to compromise it by rushing things at the end.

Thank you for all your continued encouragement. I am eternally grateful to this humble community and hope you can hold on just a little while longer.

More news to come!



All my very best,
David Grund

About This Game

Imagine that for every epic adventure, there was A Story Beside.


A Story Beside is a narrative-driven fantasy adventure game experienced through the eyes of an ordinary girl. Step into the shoes of Lyric, the humble innkeeper in a quiet mountain village, as she reflects upon a lifetime of poignant memories, heartwarming friendships, and bittersweet choices — proving along the way that you don't have to slay dragons to be the hero of your own story.

Expect gameplay full of meaningful choices, charming characters, sweeping romance, and emotional storytelling inspired by games like Life is Strange and To the Moon.


  • A LIFETIME OF CHOICES

    Shape your story over the course of Lyric's lifetime, making decisions that will impact everything from modest details in her appearance and personality to lasting friendships and romantic endeavors. As the years go by, the fate of her village and the people who live there will change based on your choices.

  • A QUIET VILLAGE

    Spend decades getting to know the town of Pyreside in all its cozy charm. The quaint apothecary shop next door, the creaky old windmill on the hill, the cottage beyond the wooded path... these are the humble but cherished places that are dear to Lyric's heart.

  • A NEW PERSPECTIVE

    Build friendships and seek romance among the farmers, smiths, and shopkeepers who call Pyreside home. In the epic hero tales, these ordinary folk are the ones living on the fringes of the story, watching self-absorbed adventurers drop by the local inn looking for a warm meal and a soft bed.
