A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Picture Archaic Greece.

A strange and ambivalent time and land. Most of the country is uncivilized, a chain of city-states, yet the isles on the other side of the sea have been colonized. Socrate's great-great-grandfather is not born yet, but art is flourishing and the Odyssey a scholar classic. Many conceptions about Ancient Greece are already true, but much more are not, for the best and the worst.

Melos is a short interactive story (around 10,000 words for 6 endings) about romance, poetry and honesty in this world at the meeting point between myth and history.

I liked this a lot! Hit me right in the feels <3 

Very good game. Maybe a bit short. And its based on choices. With multiple ending. But I like it. It's also very replayable.

But in my opinion it's weird how totally different decisions and situations sometimes leads to exacly the same ending. 

And of course I really like artstyle and music :)

I absolutely adored this game! It's beautifully written and the character design, both physically and personality-wise, is gorgeous. I loved how you included Greek poetry into the game. Very nice detail. Now there are some spelling mistakes, but they're easy enough to ignore.

All of the six endings were wonderful. Refreshingly different from what you're used to from other visual novels. I think #4 and #6 are my favourites :D

Hello! Just tried out Melos and I must say that I was interested in the plot. The only problem that I found is that I can't get the Ending #1. I got all of them except for this one. Is there some kind of problem or am I that dumb? xD

Anyway, good game. Wish it lasted longer.


Thank you for your kind comment.

Ending 1 is not easy to reach. To get it, you need to make a not really obvious series of choices: http://pastebin.com/UBs9QYf6
