Who Are We?


Hello! We're Argent Games, an indie game studio in the USA currently developing BL/Yaoi games!

The English visual novel market is expanding, but where are all the BL/Yaoi games? Unfortunately, mostly still in Japanese! That's why we wanted to start making our own BL games, which focus on story and romance while drawing inspiration from classics like Nitro+Chiral games (Dramatical Murder, Togainu no Chi, etc.).

We first began using the visual novel style because of the freedom given to the player in using their imagination during gameplay. Gorgeous art, compelling story, and tantalizing music and voice acting all play an important role in immersion, but the player's imagination is key in tying the whole experience together. 

The stories we wish to tell contain a host of diverse characters, and we tell them to an audience with all sorts of backgrounds.

Why Patreon?


As our team is only comprised of a writer (Dovah) and a manager/editor (Gamma), we have to hire outside contractors for art, music, voiceovers, etc. Our biggest challenge is securing funding for commissioning these assets. We set a high bar and refuse to settle for anything less, but this results in delays as we work elsewhere in order to secure funds.
 
Patreon provides us with a more dependable source of funds, thus allowing us to shorten the development cycle while still maintaining and exceeding our ambitions.

He's a Cyromancer - a spellcaster who wields the power of ice to smite down his enemies. Kymil learned how to harness his power thanks to his uncle, a well-renowned adventurer who hunted down treasure on every corner of the continent.

But his uncle was murdered in his home by an unknown assailant, and Kymil is driven to uncover the mystery behind his death. The only clue he has is an unfinished entry in his uncle's notes about a mysterious cathedral in the middle of the sprawling Dead Plains...

When he arrives at the cathedral, Kymil has no idea what he's searching for or where to go. But something in him presses him forward, and he's determined to figure out the cathedral's secrets, no matter how dire the cost.
