Dead Wishes is an upcoming dating sim visual novel by VIOLET. In the game you play as a young woman who struggles with the death of her parents, her days are quite miserable and if things couldn’t get any worse she’s about to be evicted from her apartment. I wrote a review about the game’s demo way back in December of last year, and let me tell you it was unlike any dating sim game I’ve played. A ‘good’ ending isn’t quite ‘good’, there often isn’t any promises of roses and magical undying love, the good ending is more ‘thank god I didn’t die’. Which it is quite refreshing, and intriguing! The demo featured four of the twelve routes and went into themes such as drugs, abuse and murder. As I mentioned in my review this game is not for everyone, but for those that are interested in playing it, you’ll be sure to have a great time.
The game is planned to be released in December this year and is currently looking for support through Kickstarter to make it happen. Rewards range from receiving copies fo the games to designing your own character! The Kickstarter has been live for just a few days and they’ve already hit their funding goal which is incredible! However, there are some really cool stretch goals that would be awesome to see come to fruition such as extra CGs and a brand new route! You can play the demo over here and support the Kickstarter here!
