You have been chained to a stranger, a boy foolish—or brave—enough to flee the gilded cage where magi are kept docile and pliant.
The curse will kill you both unless you find a way to break it. Anyone else would already be dead, but not you—for you hear the ancient voice of the Abyss, and have been blessed—or cursed—with powers dark and terrible.

Shadow Bonds is a self-contained experience that serves to introduce the characters and setting of Sigh of the Abyss.
Gorgeous hand-painted visuals breathe life into its world of dark fantasy and romance, inspired by the sun-drenched Mediterranean lands.

▪ An introduction to the characters and setting of the upcoming Sigh of the Abyss
▪ A customizable female protagonist: pick her name, influence her romantic preferences, determine her strengths and her personality through your choices
▪ A branching narrative with hard choices and terrible consequences
▪ Three unique endings with several variations each
▪ Optional romance scenes with two female love interests and two male love interests
▪ A rich setting detailed through codex entries
