ABOUT

The Letter is an interactive, horror/drama visual novel inspired by classic Asian horror films. 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.

Note: Only the prologue and the first character are free to try. At the moment, you can unlock the entire game at a discounted price within the first 24 hours of loading the app. So far I'm not disappointed The voice acting is done by professionals.

The amount of quality oozing from this visual novel is borderline astounding. Didn't hesitate to purchase the discounted full game within minutes but I have to report there's a rather hefty in-app download for what I presume is the rest of the content. I'd suspect the app is going to double or triple in size, but given this is basically all high res artwork and voice acting, with over 30 hours of content (based on some of the playtimes on Steam?) it makes sense.

It looks to me that if you purchase all 7 chapters the initial download after the unlock is the full game. I don't think anything else will be added in the future. I also bought the full unlock and The total install size (all 7 chapters) is about 1.6 GB on my 7 plus. Saw this game has over 200 'very positive' reviews on steam which led me to buy the full game at the discounted price. Can't wait to check this out tonight.

Yep--though I suspect the 'new additions' might be more along the lines of bug fixes as well as grammar, spelling and punctuation corrections.
