The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste

Isobel Salvie seems to have everything; youth, beauty, wealth... unfortunately, none of that matters much when you're dead, poisoned by an unknown person for equally unknown reasons. Arriving in Heaven, Isobel is greeted by God herself. All seems well, because as it turns out, Paradise is wonderful.
However, the pleasures of the afterlife don't come for free...
Poetry in Purgatory is a unique, ever-evolving story about what it means to live, love and make peace with things you can't run away from... even when you may desperately want to.
Experience the prologue, full first act and the entire Bliss Alwes character route in version 0.1 of the game. And then be sure to check back regularly as the game receives frequent updates, adding new routes, story content and more for free!

Planned Features

  • Fleshed out world: Purgatory grows each day! Frequent, smaller updates will bring new interactions, side quests and artwork to existing characters and their routes.
  • Major story updates: Expect 3 full story acts loaded with twists and turns, as well as a monumental epilogue where your choices will be put to the ultimate test.
  • Major route updates: Bliss Alwes's route will be joined by 7 others for a grand total of 8 characters that you may romance... or choose to stay friends with. Romancing several characters at once is also a possibility!
  • Godly missions: Undertake optional content that will reward you with special scenes which are otherwise unattainable.
  • Achievements: Show off your Purgatorian efforts to your fellow Dwellers and Denizens. Coming very soon (and more will be added over time)!
