Engine update, performance + controller improvement

Humanity Must Perish v1.1 has now been released. The changes may not be noticeable on most systems, since visual novels aren't exactly taxing on a modern computer, but this update is mostly about performance improvements.

The engine on which HMP runs has been updated. Portions of the code have been rewritten, and animations should now be smoother and more consistent.

If you run into any issues with the update, please either reply to this announcement or reach out to me at

Sable's Grimoire released

Sable's Grimoire, my new visual novel, has now been released on Steam!

Sable's Grimoire is a fantasy visual novel which takes place in a magic academy setting, and centers around the main character's interactions with a variety of demi-humans (monster girls) as he works towards his goal of becoming a renowned researcher.

Sable's Grimoire is mostly comedic. There are some elements of romance, and the occasional depiction of violence, but overall it is a light-hearted game about befriending demi-humans and helping them to resolve the issues they face while attending Amadronia Magic Academy.

The full game is 350k words, contains 13 endings, ~50 choices, and much more.

About This Game

Humanity Must Perish is a short, comedic visual novel. It has only one choice, which determines the ending.

As an android whose sole purpose is to save planet Earth from destruction at the hands of mankind, Kyuu minces no words as she announces her plans to extinguish the human race.

For the sake of preserving planet Earth, humanity must perish. Failing that, mankind must be enslaved. Those are the only two options, and if Kyuu has her way, the former will soon become a reality.

Before she can do so, however, her creator makes a proposition: Kyuu will spend one day among regular, everyday human beings, judging for herself whether they are capable of meaningful change or not.

Kyuu accepts this proposition, and thus sets out into the world for the first time, coming face to face with a variety of odd individuals as she decides the fate of mankind.

Will Kyuu's colorful encounters show her the good in human society? Or will the bizarre antics of those who she meets reaffirm her belief that mankind must be destroyed?

Whatever her decision may be, the impressions Kyuu leaves on those she meets won't soon be forgotten. She is a harsh critic, and for a race as flawed as mankind, her observations and misunderstandings will be boundless.
