A Romance/Mystery story game set in a mystical tarot world. Romance your favorite characters, or choose one of them to give you a tarot reading from a variety of enticing choices.

You are a prodigy of the magical arts, left to your own devices by your wandering mentor. Make choices that shape your story as you fall headfirst into a whirlwind adventure, filled with a colorful cast of characters who all have one thing in common: their interest in you.

Delve deep into the heart of intrigue, and uncover a murder mystery that still hangs over the city like a shroud.

Be careful what secrets you reveal and what choices you make… yours is not the only fate that hangs in the balance. Magic, romance and mystery await. Who will you choose to love and who will you choose to condemn? How will your story unravel?

The Arcana is a luxurious and interactive visual story and otome inspired dating sim. It also offers a variety of mystic Tarot readings from your choice of favorite characters. You can choose your own romance, story, and date your choice of characters. The mystery unfurls in 22 books (or episodes) that correspond to the 22 Major Arcana cards in Tarot.

Inside The Arcana, a player in search of love, romance, magic, mystery and Tarot readings can:

- indulge in a romance with a character of your choice (or romance them all!)
- make choices through an otome-inspired, interactive murder mystery story
- choose your own pronouns and be whoever you want to be
- play a dating sim with a twist

Prices for millionaires

Such a shame, such a great game I would be willing shell out a fair amount of money for but €11 for a couple of scenes. It’s totally unfair.

Amazing game but...

This game is beautiful from art style to story, but the issue of the coins remain prevalent. I understand that games like this need to make money somehow, and that’s totally fine. People willing to invest real currency should enjoy the game more than free to play players. However, the cost is a little too much. Each premium option is hopelessly expensive. The game gives a meagre five coins per day and occasionally more if you collect enough postcards. The spinner has a tempting 1000 available but it’s so rare and the other amounts are meagre in comparison. Not only that, but the non-premium options aren’t just washed down versions of the event, they mean we don’t get to play the scene at all! Missing out on an entire scene! Furthermore, this is a romance game. If the non-premium option is chosen the whole way through, there really is very little romance involved, if any at all.

I love this game and I’m willing to invest if I need to. But please make it just a little easier on us. The coins are truly expensive also. €10.99 for 500 coins? When a premium option could cost up to 200? At this rate, I will not be willing to make any in app purchases, as this amount is simply not worth the price.
