ABOUT THE GAME

This village used to be an island.
There in the distance, where the acres begin, tumultuous waves would crash up against it's sandy shores.


Abe never chose to come to Abbotsford. The village glows in a rural backwardness that fills him with a lingering dread. Soon however, things begin to look up, as he is hired as a delivery boy by Ina, the headstrong editor-in-chief for the school paper.

Before long Abe and Ina begin to uncover unsettling details about Abbotsford's past, including the mysterious evacuation of over half the island's populace. Gradually, they become caught up in an intricate web of political corruption, organized crime, and a highly secretive local church.

Deluge: Threnody of Crashing Waves is a mysterious visual novel with psychological and lovecraftian undertones.

CHARACTERS



Mei

Put your hand on these stones. Can you feel their calming warmth?

For obscure reasons Mei doesn't go to school. She can often be found wandering among the giant megaliths that where erected on the island during the late Neolithic. Recently she's been having nightmares about her little brother.




Rika

The Leviathan must be melancholy, coiling all alone through pitch black depths.

Descending from a long line of reformed preachers, Rika is well grounded both socially and spiritually. Lately, however, she has become captivated by an intense longing for the sea. Her father is the leader of the secretive Kuyper faction in the Abbotsford city council.




Ina

Scandal, crime, corruption — small town politics are a cesspool of human depravity.

Ina is strong headed and determined. Having recently taken over as chief editor of the Sunday Abbot, she is dedicated to turn the nameless tabloid into a hallmark of investigative journalism. Soon however, her inquiry into local political affairs stirs up a force that is better left untouched.
