- Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.

AVA broaches issues of gender, discrimination and prejudice, the narrative was born from personal experiences of the development team. AVA aims to provide a subtle education through sharing minorities’ experiences in AVA’s narrative. It’s the kind of story you’d hear at a campfire, a fairy tale or a legend that lives in the hearts and minds of those who tell it. The player follows Ava through her highs and lows of simply being born into a landed family and its assumed expectations, her destiny decided by the player from the turn of cards in-game.
Each level of AVA features a unique, breath-taking interactive illustration waiting to be solved. Each tarot card is a detailed, hand-drawn and custom-tailored to the game’s touching narrative. These Cards of Fate are collected with each solution and, reminiscent of life experiences, can be used to help the player solve later puzzles.
Stay safe and keep on gaming!
