Pitstop in Purgatory is a visual novel which borrows heavily from the world of adventure games, particularly the all but extinct realm of point and click titles, to create something unique and entertaining for fans of both camps to enjoy.
Originally created for Otome Jam 2022 (an event which tasked participants to create a visual novel with a female lead, and love interests to pursue, in just two months), the project proved very popular. As a result, the developers decided to expand upon their ideas in order to give the game a proper, wider release.
As a game in the otome subgenre of visual novels, romance is a key aspect of the story, but far from the only one. You can expect dramatic twists and turns, overarching mysteries, laugh-out-loud funny moments and bizarre popular culture references (both old and new) to heighten the experience and leave a lasting impression as you solve puzzles and navigate rich dialogue trees.
Currently boasting over 4000 downloads on the prevalent indie game platform itch.io, as well as a week-long stint spent as the #1 most popular visual novel on that same site, it is clear that this expanded version of the game is anticipated by many.
Pitstop in Purgatory officially debuts on Steam October 14th, 2022, preceded by a demo (out now) which consists of the full first act of the game.
