Imagine that for every epic adventure, there was A Story Beside.
A Story Beside is a narrative-driven fantasy adventure game experienced through the eyes of an ordinary girl. Step into the shoes of Lyric, the humble innkeeper in a quiet mountain village, as she reflects upon a lifetime of poignant memories, heartwarming friendships, and bittersweet choices — proving along the way that you don't have to slay dragons to be the hero of your own story.
Expect gameplay full of meaningful choices, charming characters, sweeping romance, and emotional storytelling inspired by games like
Life is Strange
To the Moon
A LIFETIME OF CHOICES
Shape your story over the course of Lyric's lifetime, making decisions that will impact everything from modest details in her appearance and personality to lasting friendships and romantic endeavors. As the years go by, the fate of her village and the people who live there will change based on your choices.
A QUIET VILLAGE
Spend decades getting to know the town of Pyreside in all its cozy charm. The quaint apothecary shop next door, the creaky old windmill on the hill, the cottage beyond the wooded path... these are the humble but cherished places that are dear to Lyric's heart.
A NEW PERSPECTIVE
Build friendships and seek romance among the farmers, smiths, and shopkeepers who call Pyreside home. In the epic hero tales, these ordinary folk are the ones living on the fringes of the story, watching self-absorbed adventurers drop by the local inn looking for a warm meal and a soft bed.
