Echoes of the Fey: The Fox's Trail - Woodsy Studio
The day has come; you can now continue the adventures of Sofya and Heremon in the next episode, Echoes of the Fey: The Last Sacrament!

In The Last Sacrament, Sofya’s loyalty grows divided when she is hired for one job and blackmailed into another. Sofya’s childhood love and the Emperor’s daughter, Katerina, seeks her protection from threats near the border. Meanwhile, Katerina’s rival Nikolai--a ruthless local politician--blackmails Sofya into stealing a dangerous drug stolen from the powerful Krovakyn Church. Inevitably, Katerina and Nikolai clash over control over the city—and Sofya’s heart.

This is our first full game developed with Unreal Engine 4. We've used the power of the UE4 engine to add 3D camera views and other cinematic effects to the traditional visual novel elements. There's also a mini-game called RiftRealms in which you can play an in-world tabletop RPG with other characters.

Get it here!

The soundtrack is also available as DLC, and both of them will be 10% off the first week of release. We sincerely hope you enjoy this game, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Eager to find out what happens next to Sofya and Heremon? Check out our Kickstarter campaign for the next episode, Echoes of the Fey: The Last Sacrament!

The Last Sacrament will be bigger in scope than anything we’ve made yet. We’re building the game using Unreal Engine 4. This might seem like an unusual choice for a visual novel. But UE4 allows us to create complex 3D environments and multiple camera angles for each scene, resulting in a more cinematic experience.

We’re also adding a unique gameplay element in the form of a mini-game called RiftRealms. This is a tabletop game that exists in the world of Echoes of the Fey, and as Sofya you can play with other characters. We thought this would be an interesting way to showcase each character’s personality based on how they treat you as a Dungeon master. It also explores the question: what do people fantasize about in a fantasy world?

You also have several romance options in The Last Sacrament. If you proceed carefully, you can develop a romantic relationship with Katerina, Arkady, Nikolai, or Heremon.

On February 7, Episode 0: The Immolation releases free here on Steam! Play through the backstory of Sofya's powers and her relationship with Heremon as it all unfolds. To honor its release, we've put Episode 1 on sale this week, and we're also patching it with a few updates!

Update changes:
- The game now fully supports Xbox Controller. The interface and prompts will change automatically depending on whether you're using mouse, keyboard, or controller
- The game HUD can now be completely hidden at all times (from Options menu)
- "Skip" function is now on the left Shift key. This is to ensure the controls match Episode 0, and to prevent anyone from skipping accidentally when pressing Ctrl+PrtScn

Thanks everyone for playing, and let us know if you have any issues!

We've just pushed an update with a slight alteration to the controls so they are a bit more comfortable for people accustomed to VNs made with Ren'py.

"S" key --> Now takes a screenshot of the game that gets placed in your local save directory
"Ctrl" key --> Now skips through text (read or unread)
"Space bar" will no longer select a choice; press Enter to do that instead

The log feature previously mapped to "L" has been removed; this was never meant to be a supported feature. You can use the mouse wheel to rollback through text in the game, back to the latest choice point (you can't redo choices, which is a significant but intentional change from Ren'py).
