“This is a love poem. I wrote it with a scalpel.”

Beyond the Veil is a text-based narrative horror game, with a focus on character-driven storytelling.
Kara, an unemployed college dropout, has no choice but to move in with her Dad when he decides to relocate to New Orleans.
Kara has no discernible skills, and no direction. It's her exploration of this city, and the friendships she makes there, that will mold her into the woman she will become.
These choices are yours. So step up to the threshold- from here, there is no turning back.
Beyond The Veil is developed by the team at Sun's Shadow Studios. This production was made possible with support from Film Victoria.
