A New Innovative Take On The Visual Novel Genre With Dark Renaissance

Dark Renaissance

THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS IN “DARK RENAISSANCE,” A BLOODY NEW HISTORICAL EPIC FROM FORWARD-THINKING ITALIAN PUBLISHER VLG AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR MATTEO STRUKUL

UP-AND-COMING PUBLISHER AND AWARD-NOMINATED DEVELOPER, STUDIO V, UNVEIL THEIR LATEST INNOVATIVE TAKE ON THE VISUAL NOVEL GENRE

 

Penned by acclaimed international bestselling author Matteo Strukul - the Italian Master of Historical Fiction - and scored by award-winning composer David Logan, the title blends RPGs, period pieces and graphic novels together to depict the adventures of a Venetian mercenary who must uncover the shocking secrets hidden behind the scientific, artistic and cultural achievements of the 15th century Renaissance. The game is set to release in 2021.

“Studio V is hard at work weaving an intricate web of political conspiracies and moral dilemmas for visual novel fans to sink their teeth into next year,” says Daniele Falcone, General Manager at VLG. “From what we’ve seen so far, DARK RENAISSANCE is set to reshape our definition of interactive storytelling through its unique portrayal of historically accurate events, many of which continue to inspire dark fantasy authors around the world today.”

DARK RENAISSANCE is set in a world where traces of the Middle Ages can still be found in an age of beauty and enlightenment. As protagonist Marco Badoer, a legendary warmonger whose life was shaped by the bloody battlefields of Transylvania, players must protect the economic interests of Lorenzo de’ Medici as his reign is threatened by the mystical Orphic Hymns in iconic cities like Venice and Florence.

Through deep lore, dynamic quick time events, strategic duels, skill and upgrade systems, side quests, historically accurate mini-games and encounters with illustrious figures like Marsilio Ficino and Leonardo da Vinci, players will learn a lot more about the grittier side of the Italian Renaissance. That’s not to mention that the game will include multiple endings for visual novel fans to explore.


Game Features:

  • The darkest and grittiest Renaissance epic ever built in a game
  • A massive historical tale set across the war-torn landscapes of Italy
  • Explore world-famous landmarks such as Venice, Florence and the mysterious swamps of Northern Italy
  • Meet the rockstars of the Renaissance: Leonardo, the Medici’s Family and many other icons of European history
  • Hundreds of opportunities for character development, romance and social linking
  • Unique staged combat sequences blending opera and brutal RPG action
  • A deep housing system to enjoy luxury, drugs, gambling and the notorious Italian lifestyle
  • An original symphonic score mixing and matching ancient and modern styles
