Norse Mythology and Cyberpunk Collide in Gods of the Twilight, Out Today

Gods of the Twilight

Available from today on PC, Gods of the Twilight is a visual novel that sees Nordic legend crash into a modern, cyberpunk world. It’s a world where magic has all but been forgotten, but with the end times looming, strange things are starting to happen.

We’ve got to say, the premise of Gods of the Twilight has us intrigued. Available today in Early Access, this is an episodic experience that’s set to take us well into 2025. Currently, the first five chapters are available, but developer Volutian Design has 20 planned for the first season. Following those 20 episodes, plans for a second series are already in place.

For fans of narrative experiences, then, Gods of the Twilight promises a whole lot of content. This visual novel will introduce you to Althea and Farkas, two young adults living in the city of New Reykjavik. Over the course of the game, you’ll take control of each of them, shaping their newfound abilities as the world-ending events start to reveal their ugly faces.

As Althea and Farkas, you’ll meet a wealth of characters and the choices you make will shape those relationships. Will you become rivals, friends or lovers? All are options here, depending on how you play.

What’s particularly exciting here is that all characters are fully voiced, elevating this experience from basic visual novel territory and making it a more immersive experience.
