It's too late to participate in KS but they are funded and raised for extra content and PC customisation, not for full English voice though.

"Los Angeles, California, 1996. A young newcomer is turned into a vampire and thrust into the dark underbelly of society, forced to sink or swim. You are that newcomer.



Choose your appearance, pick your vampire House, and make hundreds of choices that determine not only your future—but the future of Los Angeles. Will you side with L.A.'s vampire ruler, join the rebellion, seize power for yourself... or something else entirely? The choice is yours.

† Genre: Drama, dark comedy, twisted romance (G/B/NB x B)
† Rating: R-17 (optional adult content)
† Routes: 3 (3 male love interests)
ENDINGS: 21
† Platforms: Steam, Google Play, Itch.io

EVERY DIALOGUE RESPONSE IS A CHOICE
† Customizable MC (name, gender pronouns, skin color, hair color, eye color, bust, jaw)
† Your custom MC is shown in CGs
† Choose your own vampire House (~Toreador-Ventrue, ~Gangrels-Brujah, ~Malkavians)
† Have your very own (optional) human blood pet/slave, male or female
† NPCs remember how you treat them

RE:H contains “romance,” but it is not a dating sim. It’s a story about you, your power, and your role in the world. The love interests are a part of your story—you don't have to just be a part of theirs.

Through the world of vampires, RE:H explores themes such as addiction, consumerism, mob psychology, and the portrayal of sex/romance in media. There are many references to dark, real-world events and problems. However, our goal is to ask the player questions, not give them answers.

Another one of RE:H’s most important features is its dialogue system. Some dialogue choices are locked to a certain house, personality type, or only show up if you have a certain relationship with a character. As a result, you'll see many different options with each playthrough.

These options aren't just for show, either. Almost every choice will affect a character's opinion of you, your personality, and/or your reputation in Los Angeles. Just remember that, in a world as dangerous as Hollywood, allies are important. Choose your friends and enemies wisely, because the future of L.A. vampires may rest on your shoulders…

Ending Branches

The way endings work in RE:H is somewhat unusual. Rather than a separate set of ending paths for each love interest, they’re instead tied to the overarching story.

What this means is: regardless of whose route you’re on, you can still achieve a particular story ending/outcome. Of course, your love interests will react very differently depending on your chosen ending—two of them may be perfectly content, but the third one might hate you for it.

Why did we do it this way? Because RE:H’s story is about you. You are the independent main character, and your fate (as well as the fate of L.A.) doesn’t need to revolve around your love interest. That’s your decision and yours alone.

Note: However, there will also be a “special” unlockable ending path for each route…"

Cool!  I bought it on Steam!  The game sounds interesting, and I like to play Visual Novels too.  The graphics are pretty too, a nice plus.
