The Letter is an interactive, horror visual novel inspired by classic Asian horror films, Ju-ON: The Grudge and The Ring. Told through an immersive branching narrative, the game puts the players into the shoes of seven characters as they find themselves falling prey to a vicious curse plaguing the Ermengarde Mansion for centuries.

In this game, your choices will shape and drive the story forward: will you mend a relationship on the verge of collapse, or will you let it fall apart? Will you risk saving them, despite the consequences, or leave them to die a gruesome death? The fate of all the characters is in your hands.


The Letter was conceptualized last August 2015. At the time, we noticed that there are only few horror-themed visual novels out there (the really good ones, at least), and as fans of both genres, we wanted to contribute somehow. Using J-Horror as an inspiration, we slowly built the premise of the game. Once we had a solid demo, we placed the game on Kickstarter, where it successfully raised more than $30k USD.
