Hello, and welcome!

Barnhouse Studios is an up-and-coming, small but passionate creative team led by friends Andi Wamboldt, an illustrator and character designer, and Kevin Armstrong, an experienced writer and visual novel director. We've been close collaborators in creative projects for years, and have many stories we'd like to tell together!

We specialize in visual novels, featuring fantasy elements, warm and lovable characters, and LGBTQ+ positive narratives. Our current headliner project (although still unnamed) is a romance visual novel focusing on Mia & Celes, two girls in a steampunk-inspired, turn-of-the-century fantasy world beset by unfortunate circumstances and turned into half-"monsters". The two make an odd pair - Mia being a plucky, devil-may care, airship-obsessed tomboy who shifts back-and-forth between a bushy-tailed feline form; and Celes being a timid, fussy but tender-hearted romantic of a farmgirl, whose body has been turned into sludge and slime with shapeshifting capabilities. But the two lonely girls, both of whom have lost their past lives, homes and families, stick together to help one another through living and thriving in their new bodies, and reuniting with their loved ones - and, in the process, unexpectedly discover newfound meaning, strength and love in each other.

With support from patrons, we hope to be able to put funds into making the Mia & Celes project, among others, bigger and better than we could hope to otherwise! Subscribing to our Patreon not only helps us achieve this, but gives you access to exclusive behind-the-scenes content, early access to beta builds of our visual novels, and bonus, expanded-universe art and stories to be shown nowhere else, among a plethora of other goodies!

From all of us, thanks so much for stopping by - and thanks even moreso for deciding to support us!
