Akash: Path of the Five {PS4}

Website

Akash has been a neat project for us in two different ways.  One, it's awesome to get to do some Ghibli-inspired orchestral/piano music. Two, it's an otome visual novel, which we haven't done in the past, despite being familiar with the genre. Souha and Maher at Truant Pixel have been a pleasure to work with, and with their guidance we've devised a way to create variety within the different musical themes by way of slicing each song up into layers that can then dynamically enter and exit scenes. We're very excited to see this game come together with the wealth of talent that are part of the project.

Akash: Path of the Five is a visual novel in the otome style.


Players will assume the role of Aurora, a 20 year old elemental. For nearly a millenia, the number of elemental girls born has dwindled over the generations, forcing them to interbreed with humans to save their race from extinction.

As the first elemental girl the village of Akash has seen in over 200 years, all eyes are on Aurora while she prepares for her Coming of Age Ceremony. Tensions between her home village and a neighboring village of humans boil over, threatening an all-out war. Players will have the opportunity to cultivate a romance with one of her five classmates, navigate the conflict between the two races, and plan the greatest Coming of Age Ceremony the village of Akash has seen in two centuries.
