A heavily branching visual novel, featuring love, friendship and life-sim elements in a future destroyed by the sun.

Ashlynn leaves life on the surface for a comfortable safe place inside Camden, an underground city. You can find a job, make friends, and maybe even find love.

Things should be great, but then everything starts to fall apart.

A storm destroys the town on the surface, which splits the community. Protests turn into riots, and paranoia about outside forces may not be misplaced. Deal with sabotage, fights, and everyone has an opinion about it.

Make choices and deal with the consequences.

We have all the amenities you could ever dream of: a gym for your fitness, a library for your mind, and a bar for socializing. Our community center is a hub of activity.

Never worry about fatal power outages again. We use an advanced Geothermal energy system that is as safe as it is efficient. Our impressive security and medical departments keep us protected and healthy.

You play as Ashlynn Phillips. Ashlynn is suspicious, but desperate to make this new life work. Her life on the surface was hard. She spent most of it fighting for everything and going without. Now she’s safe. Her mother is safe. They have food, water, and shelter. Nothing will get in the way of that ever again, if she has anything to say about it. Or will she change her mind when she sees just what living in Camden can mean?

Camila Phillips – Your mother, despite her airy optimistic nature you know she’s seen some very dark times. You can hear her whimper in her sleep, though she’ll vehemently deny it. Shes content to read romantic stories and daydream until reality catches her attention.

Mayor Rick Davidson – The man in charge. Will do whatever it takes to ensure Camden’s future success and prosperity. Many of the residents are enamored with the charming mayor, but he seems to have finally taken a personal interest in the doe-eyed Camila Phillips.
