What’s Grimm & Tonic

This is a weekly web visual novel, that follows the residents of the fictional city of New Eden.
New scenes released every Friday.


Check it out here



In this VN, you wake up one evening to find Death sitting on your sofa. Broke, friendless and apparently soul-less, He offers you a temporary job at the premiere, local, shady hole-in-the-wall, DEAD-END.
Maintaining a healthy Work-Life balance is pretty tricky on a good day but it’s damn near impossible when your boss threatens foreclosure on your mortal existence. As the new bartender at DEAD-END, you’ll make new friends, mix weird drinks, all while navigating Life, Death and everything in between.








What are the Themes?
The game will focus on the following themes:
Wishing vs. Desire vs. Action
Locus of Control
Coping Mechanisms
Personal Growth






You can expect the game to touch on topics such as suicide, alcohol abuse and depression.  This title is going to be focused towards an audience aged 16 and up.  There will be references to alcohol and adult situations.  However, there will be no explicit nudity









Open to Feedback?
Yep.  Looking forward to any comments anyone may have: Pacing. Ideas/Suggestions. Both Positive and Negative criticisms.

Revamped scene 3!  
Wasn’t satisfied with the scene from last week. After reviewing the feedback, I’ve made some changes to the scene to bring the narrative more in line with my goals.

Check it out here!

Let me know what you think!

Loving the style and premise of this game! I want to play the current iterations, but your demo links aren't working. That aside, I'm looking forward to playing.

your link below the picture is bad!

i'm not a fan of that light blue Sad

that's a really cool idea!
but it is quite a grim subject, and I'm not sure how well a short vignette VN can deal with it Shocked
good luck :D

A lot of this is exploratory.  I'm excited to see what works though!
