Azurael's Circle: Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 coming to 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.

I enjoyed this but there was a little trouble having to click on things repeatedly to trigger them- ex: the wall safe next to parent's room. Otherwise, it wasn't too bad. I hope to see more!

Chapter 2 is coming to Steam (along with Chapter 1) next month. Keep an eye out ;)

The followings are the secret items and hidden endings I have found so far (In order not to be a spoiler, I will not specify them or how to obtain them)

1. The "cursed" thing
2. The "tasty" thing
3. Three "evil" things


1. Normal ending
2. Coward ending
3. Hellish ending (You end up in a place like hell...)

Do I miss out anything? I guess those three "evil" things might come in handy, but I haven't figure out how, any hint on this?

(By the way I deducted 0.5 star for the time I spent finding all these and, most importantly, for my finger that got so sore after hundreds of clicks!!! )
Just joking :p Very nice little horror game though. Keep up the good work and hope to see chapter 2 soon!

TheEnkian responds:

The three "evil" things are what let you get that third ending. Well done finding all of that! Must have taken a while, haha.

i need a walkthough is there one

TheEnkian responds:

There are a couple on YouTube that I've seen. You can also PM me where you're stuck and I can help.

I seriously adore and love this game! The music, graphics, story, feeling, I love it all, 10 out of 10. The feeling of dread, what is going to be though the next door is amazing! Will be waiting for the next chapter!!

TheEnkian responds:

Thanks for such high praise! Chapter 2 will be coming before the end of summer. I'm trying to best work out my release model, but it'll definitely be coming to Steam and Itch.io with Chapter 1 also coming to Steam (still free) at the same time.

Such a masterpiece! The game is very immersive and it gets the atmosphere just right with the soundtrack, sound effects and the little details; like the painting changing. I also like that the game has multiple endings, they make the player want to go back and play it again (Like I did). The graphics are detailed, fitting and they look really good for this style of game.

Overall an excellent game, though a bit short. I cannot wait for the second chapter!

TheEnkian responds:

Planning on making about 5 endings for Chapter 2. An obviously canonical one like right here, but 4 branching paths at various stages too. Hopefully that gives extra replayability once again ;)
