Dusk and Dawn release this weekend!

The continuation of the story begun in Crimson Gray will be releasing very soon! Follow the page here if you want to know as soon as it's available:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/894460/Crimson_Gray_Dusk_and_Dawn/

I've added achievements and completed the last tasks required for a Steam release, so I hope that there will be no obstacles. Steam's changing policies required me to rework some things, but the plan right now is to not require any patch to play the full game.

If you are interested in Lizzie and John, please check it out when it releases! I tried to show some glimpses of their future while still giving the two of them a satisfying conclusion. If you'd like to see more, please cross your fingers along with me for the launch!

Crimson Gray: Dusk and Dawn

The Steam page for the sequel is up now! Check it out here for more information:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/894460/Crimson_Gray_Dusk_and_Dawn/



This VN will be a sequel to Crimson Gray - and as you can see from the image above, you'll be playing from Lizzie's POV! I enjoyed writing from her perspective and have a few tricks that I hope will make it an interesting experience.

Please think of this as "Crimson Gray 1.5" instead of a full sequel. It will be shorter than the first game (and priced lower), basically a chance to revisit the characters and explore a little more of Lizzie and John's story and world.

If you are interested, future information until the actual release will be on the game's page. Thank you for following my work!

About This Game

John is a young man suffering from severe depression. As he loses his sense of purpose in life, he begins to see the world in unfocused gray. Just when he begins to lose all hope, John meets a girl... a very special girl.

Though Lizzie appears affectionate and devoted, it quickly becomes clear that she's so violent and unstable that a normal boy would run away from her. But when John sees her, he sees someone else suffering from a mental condition. John is willing to risk his safety for a chance to help Lizzie gain some mental stability. Lizzie is willing to murder everyone in school if she believes it would make him happy.

Your every choice will impact both characters' mental states, changing their fate. John might reject Lizzie, succumb to his depression, or die violently. Lizzie might lose control and ruin her chances, or become obsessed with shadowy conspiracies that may or may not exist. Or just maybe the two of them might be exactly what the other needs, and their story could end in happiness...

Crimson Gray is a psychological thriller, exploring the psyches of the characters and the strange circumstances that brought them together. It has a focus on subtle actions having consequences, your choices impacting the characters' mental stability in ways that could make choices down the line have very different results.
