Azurael's Circle: Chapter 5

Share Collapse

Author Comments

NOTE: This is a free demo of the full game. You'll find about a third of the game here and the full game can be bought on Steam.

Father David Wallace has spent many years trying to atone for his past misdeeds involving the demon, Azurael. Knowing that he can't run forever, he responds to a request from an old colleague, Stephen Birch, requesting his nephew be exorcised after a sudden possession. Father Wallace knows there's more to the story before arriving at Birch Manor, but he always knew that he would have to face judgement one day. Is it today?

Azurael's Circle is a horror-mystery adventure game. Navigate the manor and piece together the real reason why you're here. Combine 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 truth while meeting a few familiar faces.

This is the fifth and final act in the Azurael's Circle series.

- 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.

I've found this and played all five chapters from the start. Nice to see you bring the game to a proper (imo) conclusion. It was also a very lovable design. My only issue was the need to click on the menu items twice, which would get especially unpleasant with entering passwords. Other than that, I loved it. Hope we will see more from you in other projects and genres!

TheEnkian responds:

Thank you for taking the time to play from the first chapter all the way to the end. Yes, I definitely agree about some of the clicking aspects. If you're looking for anything else I've made, I've got a bunch of games here on NG for free and a full length RPG release called Tale of Enki: Pilgrimage.

the riddles where a bit hard, chappital letter? dea*th*? english is not my mother language

TheEnkian responds:

Yeah, some of them probably don't translate well. The riddles can be answered in all upper case or all lower case.

"My name is father David Wallace. I was born in Scotland..." Heheheh Just kidding, couldn't resist. Anyway, the game is great, bringing them all together is something we probably didn't expect, and the atmosphere is always uniquely scary.

TheEnkian responds:

Thank you! I'm glad that the atmosphere was good in this one. I feel like the third chapter put narrative over atmosphere in a few places so I wanted Chapter 4 and 5 to both go back to being more eerie by having less people about similar to Chapter 1 and 2.

Still making my way through, but I'm enjoying the puzzles and interesting shifts in perspective between the characters! I'm new to the series, so the amount of exposition I needed to go through at the start was a lot (especially without any pictures or something to help for the flashbacks), but I think I was still able to grasp everything without being completely overwhelmed, so kudos for that.

TheEnkian responds:

Thanks very much! The full first game is free and there's sizable demos of the others that would definitely help you out if you're not sure about buying the full games :)

There are a 'few' typos/spelling.
I love being able to control multiple characters at once, it has a real sense of drama akin to a TV show or mystery novel. Being able to go back in a full circle with multiple characters/main characters is AWESOME. A great finale touch!

This is a slight nitpick but..while its nice I'm getting keys to rooms, not being able to know which room is which without a Map guide with the words of rooms across as I uncover new rooms is a tiny letdown.

Also I LOVE the puzzles this time around. The backwards messages and clues. The Ancestral puzzle was Very interesting to me of all of them despite how simple it may be.

Can't wait to get the full vers!

TheEnkian responds:

I'm going to get those typos all fixed up in the next week or so in preparation for the Steam release. It's amazing how you can ready something over and over for testing yet still miss the typos, haha. Very glad you enjoyed the grand finale overall and the feedback is definitely noted! All the best :)
