Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk featuredA press release from Intragames today reveals that the publisher is porting Idea Factory’s Psychedlica of the Ashen Hawk title to Steam sometime this spring. Initially released in June of 2018, Ashen Hawk is an otome visual novel that has up until now been an exclusive to the PlayStation Vita. This PC port should come as no surprise though, given that Ashen Hawk’s sister title, Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly, was ported to PC back in late 2018 as well (also by Intragames). A brief description of the game (provided by the publisher) can be found below:

Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk is an adventure game with a tragic love story of a man and a woman in conflict with each other. It was well received by foreign media and is loved by otome fans.

A young woman Eiar, was born with an eye that gleams with a scarlet light. In order to avoid being persecuted as a witch, she masquerades as a boy and lives in a derelict tower on the outskirts of town. What’s interesting is that the attitudes and reactions of the people around the player are clearly different how she disguises herself in the game. The players can make decisions over and over again as the game has multi-ending system so the players can explore multiple character paths and change the course of the story. In addition, the game provides a flow chart system that helps the players to continue straight into the desired chapter of the game.

A closed beta test of the game will be conducted between February 18th and February 24th. Those who take part will receive a steam key for the game itself as well as exclusive wallpaper.
