Azurael's Circle Series on Steam!

The police ruled that the suicide of Helen Lancaster, where she gutted herself with a kitchen knife, was due to the grief of losing her husband. Her son, Clint Lancaster, doesn't believe a woman as deeply religious as her mother would do such a thing. Clint takes it upon himself to visit his family farm and see if he can piece together the truth. What could have caused his mother to do such a thing? Was it even her? If not, what's waiting for him at Lancaster Farm?

Azurael's Circle is a horror-mystery adventure game. Navigate the house and find clues as to what happened to Helen Lancaster. Piece together items you find in your inventory to get into locked areas of the house and find other useful tools that can help you uncover the mystery.

This is the first act in a planned series of stories following the events surrounding Azurael.

- Z is Interact
- X is Open Menu/Back
- Arrow Keys is Movement

There is a mouse control option, however, due to the engine the interactive objects will be located on the closest wall boundary.

The game should run completely fine on Chrome and Firefox. You may experience audio issues with Edge and from my own testing, Internet Explorer and Brave aren't compatible. My recommendation would be to play the free downloadable version on Itch.io. Another good thing about that version is that you should experience minimal loading.

there are a few issues with using the mouse to interact but overall this is great

TheEnkian responds:

I just finished testing the final version of Chapter 4 today. Every chapter so far has had an "let's get out of here!" ending and this one is no exception.
