It’s time we start looking at stories from other perspectives, let’s look at Henchman Story. Time after time, we see these stories where civilization is under threat and a young hero rises to the occasion. If I’m honest, it gets rather boring after a while. In fact, more often than not, I always wonder what a story from the other side would be like. Furthermore, what if I wasn’t even an “important” character. The beautiful project from Silken Sail Entertainment does just that. A story that details the struggles of “lowly” henchmen and how they’re getting by with every paycheck. If the story isn’t enough, they absolutely nail the comic book aesthetic with their UI and character designs too! It’s the other side of the coin that you never looked at.

So, really, what is Henchman Story about?
Henchman Story is a visual novel where you play as a beleaguered henchman working for a bumbling supervillain.
It’s thankless work. Week in and week out, you put on your purple spandex and get the crap beaten out of you by much stronger, much cooler people wearing much fancier spandex. But the checks clear, and Lord Bedlam offers healthcare, so a job’s a job, right?
Even henchmen have bills to pay, and sometimes, even henchmen can make choices that change everything.
Don’t just take my word for it. Play the demo, and let the developers know how you feel about the game. Feedback is immensely appreciated! Good luck Silken Sail Entertainment, Operation Rainfall stands with you.
