Sorority Rites Visual Novel
‘Sorority Rites Visual Novel’ takes place 3 years before the events of ‘The Last Yandere’ and the award-winning horror game ‘Dere Exe’.
Players get to enjoy a retro arcade game and aim for the highest score at the start of the game, then follow the journey of the main character soon after.
This kinetic visual novel game / arcade game hybrid centers around new school transfer Myles, an 18-year old nobody, and her attempts to succeed at a mysterious initiation ritual. She encounters Venice, the most popular girl on campus, and is forced to stay at a supposedly haunted mansion in order to pass the local sorority’s initiation rites. However, things take a darker turn.
Every time the ball touches the geometric figure, the position and the number of spikes changes. Rotate the figure and don’t let your ball be broken by a spike!
Geometry and minimalism
Each level of the game opens a new geometric shape, inside which the ball will bounce: a square, a hexagon, octagon and more complex polygons. Catch bonuses, that will help to survive or on the contrary will make it a really hard game. Collect points by helping the ball to bounce through spikes, open up new levels and balls.

Squirix is a minimalistic logic puzzle game with handmade challenges where you have to colorize all hexagons to complete each puzzle.
A simple tap colorizes or decolorizes any hexagon. Sounds too easy?
What if all hexagons which are side-by-side to the one you tapped also toggle it’s state? Still sounds too easy?
More gameplay elements are added as the game goes on. It’s one of those games which is simple to play but hard to master.
Completing the challenges in fewer moves lets you earn more stars which could add you to the top of the gamecenter highscore list.
