Posted on June 25, 2023 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop


Athanasy is making the jump to Switch and will release on June 29, 2023, according to an eShop listing. Valkyrie Interactive will publisher the Wirion-made title.

Athanasy is ultimately a visual novel, but a few other terms describe it as well. It’s said to offer biopunk, ADV, sci-fi, horror, bio-horror, body-horror, and adventure elements.

Additional information is included in the following eShop description:

Deep beneath the surface of the dead Earth, “the City”, the last refuge of humanity, hides. Engineering genius and efforts of all mankind; a giant structure of steel, concrete, and biopolymers.

It doesn’t have a name. The locals simply call it “the City”. Lilies do not bloom here and the sun does not shine. There is no fresh breeze blowing here and you can’t hear the birds singing.

Josiah Kaviani, a young mathematician and statistician, starts his journey in this underground maze of cramped streets. He is talented and intelligent, but he has one terrible drawback – he is unbearably alone.
But soon, Josiah will have a fateful encounter that will turn his whole life and make him break the shell he used to live in. A meeting with someone or, perhaps, something that is hidden in such depths that even the horrific City cannot reach them. Something so secret that the very knowledge of it can be deadly. Something truly monstrous.

Key Features

• A well-written world that you’ve never met before.
• A dark and frightening science fiction story based on real study.
• Complex, adult characters, each with their own motives, aspirations, and skeletons in the closet.
• A variety of difficult choices that might lead the story to an unexpected end at any time.
• A full range of endings – from bad to awful.
• An atmospheric soundtrack specially written for the game – it is blood music.
• Special art gallery where the player can check their progress.
• Some of the author’s ideas were censored as to be found too dark and cruel…
• …but most of them remained.
