Arisen: Chronicles of Var'Nagal is a narrative role playing game containing hand-drawn aesthetics in which you will have to take on the role of a slave who will embark on an adventure to seek liberty.

Set on the island of Maccialatt, Arisen: Chronicles of Var'Nagal allows you to shape the personality of your character using the “Emotion” cards (Fear, Sorrow, Disgust, Anger, Joy) as you speak with different kinds of people. Your choices will impact the world around you while you unlock new cards.

You have been torn away from your peaceful life by foreign soldiers, then chained in a hold… And now you’ve been sold into slavery on the island of Maccialatt. Thanks to your willpower, your adaptability or your physical strength, you will embark on a quest for freedom..

During your journey, you will cross paths with many people of different races, ages and genders. People whose very lives you may be able to change. Some of them will feel immediately likeable, while others, could surprise you… Will you make friends, have a lover? Or would you rather have enemies, or even a nemesis?...

Indie studio Maratus Games has launched its Arisen: Chronicles of Var'Nagal kickstarter campaign, looking to raise $35,666, which will help the developers get more funds to cover the costs related to the production and development.
