Pursue the Artisan, save your sister, and uncover the past, but remember what the stories say…Meet his face, and never wake again.


A Summary

Camera Anima is a point-and-click visual novel where you take on the role of Essie, a young woman trying to save her sister from the soul-stealing serial killer known as the Artisan.

On the Floating Isles of Awyr, citizens live in a society where their livelihoods and social status are defined by the masks or “Faces” they wear. Though attitudes are slowly changing towards the Face-system, there are rumors that those who wander the streets at night without a Face become prey to the Artisan, doomed to turn up as a stylistically arranged corpse.

His last known victim was found five years ago, but he’s never been caught. Only Essie truly knows what happened that night.

Explore through her memories to uncover the mystery of the Artisan.

The demo looks good, really interested in the world & if the masks will have a significant impact on how the story unfolds. Good luck with the Kickstarter!


Thank you so much again, Cryptic! The masks do have an impact in status in the game, that's for sure.
