Project Introduction

As Emmett, a young video game fan and aspiring artist, dive into this fictional video game era, where the Kinmoku Shark gaming system and its online social network Videoverse were still popular. Strengthen Emmett’s friendships, share fan art of his favourite game, Feudal Fantasy, and browse the Videoverse communities. Make decisions that will change how Emmett grows, his approach to Videoverse and, ultimately, the final outcome!

Will your actions help Videoverse thrive, or will you get caught up in teenage drama, video game fandoms and corporate conspiracies?

Relive the Days of Retro Gaming:
VIDEOVERSE has been inspired by old school social networks (MSN Messenger, Miiverse, message boards), early 00’s technology and video game magazines. The chill soundscape of the Kinmoku Shark, composed by Clark Aboud (Slay the Spire, Kind Words), will uncover memories of your favourite retro gaming consoles.

Browse Videoverse:
Meet a huge cast of characters, unlock multiple side stories, enjoy the pixel doodles, help or report others in the communities, and seek out the truth behind the troubled social gaming network! Personalise your Videoverse experience by choosing your avatar, personal quote and favourite theme.

Join Feudal Fantasy Fans:
Accompany Emmett as he plays the Kinmoku’s Shark’s most popular JRPG, Feudal Fantasy. Swap theories and discover tips from other FF fans in its exclusive Videoverse community, and find out whether or not Hanzo will be able to stop the evil Nobunaga!
