The Tavern uses a new approach to role-playing. You play as mercenary named Nalia - a single mother who tries to earn enough coins to survive the winter. Your children need you to come back, but how are you going to act seeing the cruelty and rottenness of the outside world? After all, the monsters, dark magic and barbarians from Southern Tribes are nothing in comparison with the human iniquity.

No fillers, no grinding, only your decisions and the story - complex as a visual novel, interactive as an RPG. All this takes place in a grim, dangerous fantasy world where the main goal of entire civilizations is survival.

  • Immersive, complex dialogues filled with player's decisions;
  • Narrative battle system;
  • Multiple endings;
  • Unique, personal story;
  • Non-linear, elastic plot;
  • Estimated playtime - between 1.5 and 3 hours.

Hello, fellow gamers!

I'm happy to announce that in a couple of hours after writing this post The Tavern, an RPG-Visual Novel hybrid, is going to be available on Steam at a price of 4.99 USD!

The game has a lot of text and is focused on plot and immersive dialogues. During the playthrough you make dozens of minor and major choices shaping the story and various details. We tried to make an RPG without grinding, XP-farming, fetch quests, boring walking and generic plots.

In our game you play as mercenary named Nalia - a single mother who tries to earn enough coins to survive the winter.

Your children need you to come back, but how are you going to act seeing the cruelty and rottenness of the outside world? After all, the monsters, dark magic and barbarians from Southern Tribes are nothing in comparison with the human iniquity.

Your story begins when you approach a weird, isolated tavern…

Please notice that even though the game does not contain any sort of erotic/pornographic content, please notice that it is still an R rated title - it contains some strong language, grim and mature topics and the overall feel is quite grim.

Here you can find our free to play demo!

If you would like to see more details, visit our website!

And if you don’t like Steam we are also available on itch.io!

Let us know what you think! : )

"The Tavern" is ready and we're looking for reviewers!

It's great to see rpg's like yours are beginning to look past the typical tropes that have defined the genre in recent years.

Having been raised by a young single mother in a very poor environment myself I would really like to thank you for creating someone as unique and complex as Nalia as your main character.

So far you have captured a struggle that many of us are still facing daily superbly, some aspects could use a little polish but I doubt I could have asked for anything more.

Cheers, and good luck with all future development. I look forward to seeing more from you guys.

I'm so happy to see your comment, Beenjammin. We'll try to provide even better and more polished game (and characters!) in the future.

I'm sure the best days of video game stories are still ahead of us.
