Gods of the Twilight is an episodic cyberpunk visual novel where old Norse magic returns to a world of tech. Play as two reincarnated gods facing an apocalypse. Decide who to trust and how to handle supernatural and human groups that each have their own agendas, while ancient truths about you and your companions start to resurface.

This is a world where magic has mostly been forgotten, but with Ragnarök approaching, strange events are taking shape... especially in the lives of Althea and Farkas, a young woman and man living on the city-ship of New Reykjavík. You control both of them as they face mysterious assassins, their own emerging abilities, and hints of the roles they may choose to play in world-shaking events to come. They can become friends, rivals, or even lovers with a variety of companions—including each other—as they navigate a web of potential allies and enemies... including gods, monsters, governments, corporations, and criminals.

Intended for audiences 17+ due to language, violence, and sexual themes.


  • Fully voiced dialog!
  • Choose how the world ends (hundreds of variables shape your story)!
  • Choose which characters become your allies, enemies, friends, rivals, or lovers.
  • An episodic story released over time, where choices carry over between chapters and seasons.
  • Over 100k words in the demo and first installment of episodic chapters.


The two player characters encounter companions who can share their journey toward the apocalypse. It's up to you how these relationships develop, and whether either player character may change alliegences entirely.



Althea Mishra - A scholarly but sheltered daughter of two high-achieving parents, she’s an intellectual who nonetheless loves dirty jokes.


Farkas Hekluson - Under the hardened exterior of a guy who survived rough streets growing up, he’s a scarred introvert deeply protective of those he cares about.



Sara Grímsdóttir - Sensitivity and strength combined, this mostly soft-spoken girl is just as full of bravery as she is compassion for anyone she encounters.


Hektor Koskinen - A shameless dork, he’s involuntarily wealthy thanks to his CEO father, but nonetheless straightforward and honest to a fault.


Lieutenant Cebisa Komani - A duty-driven Icelandic special forces police officer, she’s now an operative for the highly classified international operation dealing with recent supernatural occurrences.

Mikael Pulkkinen - Hector’s valet, who has become more like an older brother to him through the years they’ve spent together. Easily sees through bullshit and has zero tolerance for it.

Jóhannes Stefánsson - A personal assistant to Althea's parents, he likes to keep things strictly professional and not reveal much about himself, but the recent strange occurrences will test the limits of this mask.

...and more as the story unfolds!

First of all I just wanted to say I love the game!  Question though... are we unable to romance Mikael while playing as Farkas?  Just curious if I haven't made the right choices or if it just isn't an option.

Glad you liked it! To answer your question, in the 5 chapters released so far, there are some characters who have romance scenes and others who don't yet, even though they will in the coming chapters. There are also some who initially only have romance scenes with one player character but not the other, but that doesn't mean the other player character will never have that option. It's just that each combination of characters is unique, and each connection develops in its own way and at its own pace. Things change as the characters get to know each other, and as different plot points play out.

For Mikael specifically, you can interact with him and change your affection score with him, but his romance scenes are all after Chapter 5.  And as Mikael warns you, it's rare for him to feel anything for masculine-leaning people, so the possibility for Althea is easier and sooner than for Farkas. After all, the NPCs vary in terms of how frequently they're interested in different genders.

Also, you won't be locked out of a future romance by an unintentional choice. Instead, either the character won't be open to it yet because you don't have enough affection points, or it will be clear that you're about to lose a character as an ally if you betray them or side with a faction they oppose. These faction choices and betrayal options start to appear later in Season 1.

Hello there!

I played the first five chapters these last couple of days, experimenting with different choices, getting my flirt on with some of the cast, and enjoying the story to this.

I'll start with saying that the writing in this is of a pretty good, consistent quality. The world building is quite interesting and is quite a unique combination of Norse mythology and sci-fi that works surprisingly well together. It stands out from everything else and feels really fresh in the VN genre. The plot and world is interesting and fleshed out too. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into how this combination would work. I won't say too much about characters yet as this story is still in progress.

The general artwork is also quite polished and looks quite nice to the eyes. With character designs having a distinct look from one another, to the typically high quality CG's and backgrounds. It is a good looking VN overall.

The music is fine and gets the job done. It didn't particularly stand out to me but what did was the voice acting. I was skeptical of it being fully voiced but it ranged from decent to really good with nothing I'd call outright bad. Is there a way to see who plays who? I would love to credit a couple actors in particular who I thought did awesome in their roles.

Overall, a fairly enjoyable start to this. If I were to score it it'd land around a 7.5-8/10 as of right now. It is early but I don't feel like my choices have a big impact yet and it feels like illusion of choice right no but maybe I just need to play around some more. I won't factor it too much right now as there is still a whopping fifteen chapters to go.

Still, really enjoyed the about the ten hours I spent with this. Will be looking on in anticipation for whenever the next batch of chapters drop.

Good luck with the rest of development and have a good day!

You can find the actors on the Credits page within the game menu, under Extras!

The demo was great.  I found the world intriguing and the story had depth.  I enjoyed the humorous points and thought the music was quite nice too.

 When will the final game released ?

We're recording voice now for chapters 1-5, to release later this year. But this will only be the first part of season 1--we have two more installments of chapters planned after that!

Very good yes

(+1)(-1)

I find the demo is pretty intriguing, Farkas somehow reminds me of my MC lol. When will the final game released and at what price?

Thanks! The game is episodic, so we're aiming to have the first volume out in late 2021, but there'll be a (free) extended demo before that, hopefully in the next couple months! Final price depends a bit on how we work out things like "pay per episode" versus "season pass" in collaboration with any publisher we end up working with.

I take a look of the script inside the game folder and dissappointed that I can't cheat by knowing the story in advance 😂 anyway good luck with the VN!

Yeah, gotta keep at least *some* secrets :P Thanks again!

yoo good luck!

There is some similar vibe to my visual novel, ALLBLACK, if you look at my profile. Do check it out if you're interested

I'll check it out! Thanks again for reaching out!

Love the demo and looking forward to the full release! Already added to my wishlist. :)

Thank you! I'm very happy to hear it! We're planning an extended free demo before the full release so keep your eyes open for that too! 

I just finished the demo, this looks interesting so far! When the full game is released, I think I'll have Farkas romance Sara, and Althea romance Cebisa, as I like Sara and Cebisa's characters so far.

Glad to hear it! Keep your eyes out for an extended demo coming up in the meantime as well.

Interesting Visual Novel concept, I really enjoyed the world building that really makes you feel like you are in this devastated yet futuristic world, my only "but" would be that it takes too long to take off, I understand this is a long work but making the beginning dynamic in future works may be good.

Regardless, from what I played on the video (And a few hours off screen) I can say this is a good, enjoyable and interesting VN that becomes more and more interesting as you advance trough the story and everyone that reads this should give it a try.

Thank you very much for playing our game, and I'm glad you've enjoyed the story and the world building! 

Played your game and the art style, music and story come together nicely. I’ll be finishing it off record to see what happens next. Good job. 

Thank you very much, I'm very happy you've enjoyed our game!

You’re welcome, you did a good job.
