On August 20th, in Helsinki, Salmon Snake is happy to announce that the revenge-themed visual novel Vengeful Heart will be out on August 28th on Steam and Itch.io platforms for 9.99$.
Set long after humanity has polluted this planet, groundwater has become undrinkable and seeing a living plant is considered a luxury. Most people live in megacities that rely on the labor of poor masses to sustain a modern standard of living for the few at the top. With most of the earth scorched, water is regarded as liquid gold and the control of it is the truest form of power. Forced to cope with a permanent water shortage, ordinary people persist and toil on the hope that if they work hard enough, they too can someday swim every morning in the refreshing pools of the Gardens.
We follow the story of Josephine Lace, a young hydraulic engineer eager to climb the corporate ladder and claim a spot at the top. Until the day when that promising future is ripped away from her, leaving her half-dead and homeless, she becomes hellbent on taking down the system that ruined her and left her without a heart. Along the way she meets a diverse group of people sympathetic to her cause, every one with secrets of their own. With their help, she seeks redemption, love and most of all vengeance.
Experience the retro futuristic world of Vengeful Heart and unleash your revenge with style in this tale of capitalism, companionship and cyberpunk!
