A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Eighty people, either dead or missing. Rumours of monsters that stalk their human prey in the mist-clad forest. Moonlight is a gold mining town in trouble, and only The Falconers can help.

The Falconers: Moonlight is a supernatural thriller visual novel set in the 19th Century West Coast of New Zealand. Falconer, Cassandra Winter, is on her first solo mission. Can she save the people of Moonlight from their plight? Or will she disappear into the mist like so many others before her?

The Falconers is an IP that mixes historical fact with supernatural thriller and fantasy fiction. Its stories are based in the 19 th Century colonies of the European empires...Britain, Spain, Portugal, France, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, Holland, Germany and Russia.

The Falconers are an international organisation of 'monster hunters' devoted to protecting European colonists from the entities that would thwart the spread of 'civilisation' into the wild frontiers. These creatures are 'The Cullers'.

And it all starts in New Zealand, the most far-flung frontier of them all.

A Visual Novel is like a Choose Your Own Adventure book. It is text-heavy but features images, sounds and music that help you become immersed in the story.

  • Additional choices and dialogues have been added to the first chapter of the story seen in Preview Demo.
  • GUI has been redesign.
  • We are currently working on branching paths.

Check out our latest blog post on our website for more detail on the update:

are there any new updates? been forever since i checked in

Hi Sandpixie. Thanks for your interests. We have done a whole improvement on the GUI design, character sprites, and a whole route one is completed. There are some arts still being done, and other routes still being working on. There would be a blog update on the progress soon. Cheers! :D

awesome!! so is it included in a demo update or is it all in the final project

It is for the final product. But along the way when all the demo part that have been changed are finalized, it is possible to make a snip and turn it into another version of demo. However, due to a very tight schedule we have, it's might ended up come out after the final product itself.

I love this game so much! Great graphics and a great game too! <3

I like this Demo it has good art, and you even have a menu to turn down the sound and make the settings you want. I also like the text bar since you can't see it and the texts look like HD, and it's not blurry like I see in a lot of novella games. The music is lovely I just don't like to have it too high, and I like there is sound effect in the game too. The only real problem I had with this game is I feel like it a little too hard to read for people like me that are not that good at English, but besides that I would say this is an excellent game.

And the final video for the demo. This ending makes me want the full game all the more sooner. Can't wait for it to come out!

When is the full game gonna have its release? And is it going to be available on Steam? :3

Hi kyuurika. We plan to releases the full version early 2017, and yes we will push The Falconers: Moonlight to Steam Greenlight soon.
