A downloadable game

It was supposed to be a vacation like any other...

The Farthest View is a story driven, mostly linear interactive visual novel combined with explorative mechanics, presented in a hand-drawn 2D graphic style.
This game contains mature themes and is targeted at an adult audience.

The Story

Ecologists who have lost trust in their profession. An elusive golden butterfly. Visions of a horrifying entity stalking the island. A stranger that brings trouble into a quiet town. And a young man with a mysterious past...

At the invitation of their common friend and classmate Jules, Thomas and his best friend Aaron follow him on a trip to Nightfall, a remote island somewhere in the Northern Atlantic, to celebrate their recent graduation. Soon upon arrival the trio discovers that there's more to the island than its rough landscape and equally rough inhabitants than meets the eye, and the lack of internet reception will soon be their least concern. As one after the other begins to experience inexplicable blackouts and start seeing things they can't logically explain, the local stories of strange apparitions and haunted places suddenly don't feel that far out anymore.

What starts out as a harmless summer adventure soon turns into a perilous quest for the truth as Thomas and his friends set out to uncover the island's best kept secret - a secret that might impact all life on the island, and maybe beyond...

Update May 2024:

I apologize for the delay.
