Herald is an interactive period drama set during the 19th century. It plays as a mix between an adventure game and a visual novel. You are Devan Rensburg, a steward of mixed-heritage working on board of the HLV Herald, a ship sailing for your land of birth, the Eastern Colonies.
As steward it's your job to take care of all the passengers, be they rich or poor, important or downtrodden. Set during a time of great inequality and injustice, players are given the choice how to deal with various dilemmas resulting from 19th century colonialism.
