About the Story

Afterlife consists in a great field of yellow flowers, green mountains and a beautiful purple sky adorned with millions of stars. All these sights, however, don't impress Paulo, a deceased knight that wanders eternity.
He waits for the death of his best friend, Oddie, so they can pass through a magic door and reincarnate together. But while he waits, he starts to wonder if his comrade will remember him after living a full life...

- A very dead and lonely knight...
- Much longing and platonic love and a bit of poetry (if you even care)...
- One BEAUTIFUL background that i animated (you're welcome)
- A DRAMATIC soundrack (made by a brazilian... mostra pra eles baden powell!!!)
- An emotional performance by two VERY TALENTED voice actors!! (thanks again, guys!!)
- A kinect novel with no branches!
- Exactly 406 words (~10 min of gameplay)

Patiently longing for a friend, May 11, 2024
by manonamora

Come back soon, Oddie is a short linear Visual Novel, formatted mainly as a monologue from an unnamed soul, waiting for their friend, Oddie. The soul, shown as a shadow in a field of yellow flower (symbolising friendship), awaits the death of his friend, so they can be once more reunited - though he still wishes for Oddie to live a long and happy life until then.

Aside from its gorgeous interface and calming music, this game also includes voices, narrating the text with an emotional tone, balancing longing and grief. It is quite touching, the way the words are said aloud. It was really lovely.

I also didn’t expect Oddie’s actual name…
