Something lurks in the Umbral Forest, its wicked tendrils snaking out to reshape the very woods themselves. Is this the beast Israh Almasi seeks to hunt and slay for the sake of his dying son? Or something even darker and more sinister than he ever could have imagined?

Meanwhile, a mysterious man has made himself at home at Israh’s campsite. He calls himself Nameless… and he only comes at night.

Follow the red star to the Umbral Forest and unravel the mysteries within.

Nameless: The Departed Cycle is a dark fantasy/horror visual novel with LGBTQ+ elements. Make choices to determine Israh's fate, and strive to survive -- perhaps even slay -- the monster stalking the Umbral Forest.

This game incorporates mature themes including physical violence, emotional manipulation, suggestive sexual content, and visual and written depictions of gore. Suggested for players 16 and up.

Such a heartwarming (or heartbreaking) story with mesmerizing artwork! Looking forward to any future updates and projects!


Thank you, Sunbeam!

We definitely have a few updates planned for Nameless, but in the meantime we're gearing up for Winter Jam with more Up All Night content. Definitely keep your eyes open. Glad you enjoyed! ;)


A fantastic story that pulled me in. I felt emotionally invested and was near tears at times. First VN I've ever played, and absolutely the best.
