The Arcana - A Mystic Romance
Simulation (Games)

Make choices through an epic romance/mystery game. Romance your favorite characters, or choose one of them to give you a tarot reading from a variety of enticing choices.

You are a prodigy of the magical arts, left to your own devices by your wandering mentor. Make choices that shape your story as you fall headfirst into a whirlwind adventure, filled with a colorful cast of characters who all have one thing in common: their interest in you.

Delve deep into the heart of intrigue, and uncover a murder mystery that still hangs over the city like a shroud.

Be careful what secrets you reveal and what choices you make… yours is not the only fate that hangs in the balance. Magic, romance and mystery await. Who will you choose to love and who will you choose to condemn? How will your story unravel?

The Arcana is a luxurious and interactive visual story and otome inspired dating sim. It also offers a variety of mystic Tarot readings from your choice of favorite characters. You can choose your own romance, story, and date your choice of characters. The mystery unfurls in 22 books (or episodes) that correspond to the 22 Major Arcana cards in Tarot.

Inside The Arcana, a player in search of love, romance, magic, mystery and Tarot readings can:

- indulge in a romance with a character of your choice (or romance them all!)
- make choices through an otome-inspired, interactive murder mystery story
- choose your own pronouns and be whoever you want to be
- play a dating sim with a twist
- enjoy your choice of mystic Tarot readings (general life, love, career and happiness): choose your cards and learn what mysteries they reveal
- fall in love...
