A Piano Tale is a visual novel with musical challenges.

Posted by on

The story takes place in the 1980's between Vienna, Austria and St Petersburg, Russia (USSR actually). The central character is an elderly lady that discovers her father, Boris, a fictional Russian music composer, wrote a secret piano concerto during the Stalinist reign. Secret, as this was a period when artists weren’t free to compose their music of choice, given the threat of the regime. She is choked, because her father was very strict during her childhood, forcing her to train extensively on the piano. She discovers the concerto was dedicated to her, including her own compositional work. Finding the entirety of the concerto is her challenge, complicated by her battle against Alzheimer's which leads to flashbacks to the 20's, 30's and 40’s. The finale will decide if she pardons her father and finds all the parts of the piano concerto. 3 endings are possible.

The story mode will last around 2 hours, including 17 piano scenes. Each piano scenes will be playable in arcade mode, once they have been unlocked by completing them in story mode.
