The Pirate Mermaid
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
~ Be the hero or villain of your own fairytale in this fantasy otome visual novel. ~
Ever since your father died searching for the mermaids' treasure, you've sworn to find it yourself. Becoming a pirate was the best way of accomplishing that goal...until your crew dumped you overboard during a huge storm.
Miraculously, you are saved and find a sorcerer who will make you a magical contract - with a catch. He'll transform you into a mermaid to grab the treasure, if you bring him a red vial from the mermaids. If you fail, you'll be turned into a lobster.
Now, you have six days before the spell ends. Will you become rich beyond your wildest dreams? Fail the contract and become lobster bisque? Perhaps you'll fall in love with a mermaid prince or sorcerer...or corrupt them with your evil pirate ways.
"The Pirate Mermaid" is an otome visual novel with many different choices and possibilities. You could become a legendary pirate, mermaid queen, sorceress, or (heaven forbid) lobster dinner. Your actions may make the other characters into your friends or lovers...or perhaps victims and slaves.
