Dawn Chorus is a free visual novel set in the cold, snowy landscape of Norway. It’s been developed for smartphones with Android version five or newer. In the game, you’ve enrolled in a science camp where you'll meet a variety of colourful furry characters.
In this nonlinear story, you'll navigate new relationships and rekindle existing ones. The story’s path depends on the decisions that you make. All the characters are animals that look like humans. The artist has cleverly conveyed the characteristics of each animal so each character is unique. For a visual novel that's based on the real world, you can try BTS World.
Romance in the arctic air
Although Dawn Chorus is set in a small guest house above the Arctic Circle, it doesn't preclude heated encounters between some of the more forward characters. You may not immediately get along with some of them; at the same time, you can start a romance with one of the characters.
The developers have done an excellent job of implementing multiple-input control options for players. Whether you're playing on an Android phone or tablet, you can choose the method that’s the most comfortable for you. For control methods, you can pick between touch screen, mouse, keyboard and gamepad.
Supporting the developer
Although this game is free, you can support the developer with donations. If you support Dawn Chorus, you’ll receive bonuses such as access to updates on the day of release and exclusive concept art.
Dawn Chorus has a nonlinear storyline where you decide the fate of the game. This makes the story more interesting and gives it greater replayability.
The artwork for this game is quirky: the hybrid characters that are represented as animals with human characteristics have a surreal appearance. Even so, they’re still relatable. This is due to the clever writing of the characters that complement the graphics. The result is an entertaining role-playing game that's well worth checking out.
