Hovel is a fully-illustrated visual novel that takes place in the fantasy world of Ulnara. It's an ambitious story about culture, the cost of war, and finding a place to belong.

Kaybi is a simple villager from the Nira territory, when she stumbles upon a stranger floating in the water — Hesta. Though Kaybi doesn't know it, Hesta's arrival marks the beginning of something wonderful and terrible.


Kaybi and Hesta's dynamic is the main focus of the story, as Kaybi's empathetic, intuitive approach clashes with Hesta's apathetic, calculative approach.


The world of Hovel is inspired by ancient civilizations and cultures in Egypt, Mesoamerica, Sumer, Asia, and odd prehistoric creatures and deep sea life, but most of it is pure fantasy.

Hovel is a "fully-illustrated visual novel", creating a cinematic quality without all the work of full animation.
