A downloadable interactive novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Six Months is an in-development interactive novel. It is a sequel to Swan Hill, a twine story you can find here. Swan Hill takes most readers ten to fifteen minutes to play.

Six Months is slow-burning, low-key fantasy fiction in a world where magic is rare and ethically dubious. It's a murder mystery about power, family, and faking it until you make it. If you like Swan Hill, you can expect the final version of Six Months to be more of the same.

Really hope you end up finding the time to finish this one day!

I don't know if you're still planning on finishing this, but I really hope you do someday! Will be keeping an eye on this project.

I just played this + Swan Hill for the first time, then sat at my desk and cried because I was overwhelmed by how much I love it. Thanks for making this, I can't wait to play the final game and literally die of dehydration.

thank you!!!!

Ughhh I love this thing so much ♥
