A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Aureve is an android, content with a life of weaving silk tapestries alongside her master--but when he dies, his family sells her off due to her being a rogue: a self-aware android.

Thrown into a new home of refuge for rogues, the newly freed Aureve must find her place amongst them and answer the question once and for all: how does one weave a new identity when the strings to the old have been cut?

Inspired by lore from the likes of Cupid and Psyche, The Wizard of Oz, Pinocchio and other beloved tales, Belle Automata is the journey of an android reinventing herself. Join Aureve and the others as they forge their own paths dealing with love, self-acceptance, and grief for a life left behind.

For Aureve, choices were always a world unknown--but now her life is full of them. Stripped of her purpose and her past, her only choice is to face the future.

The perfect butler, Victor can do it all. Organizing, cleaning, gardening, yes. But feeling? Now that might be too much to ask...

Thank you so much!


I can tell this is going to be a masterpiece, your writing is simply amazing and the characters are so intriguing! I am dying to know more about the Nightmare Prince. ;) Good luck with your Kickstarter!


Really hope the kickstarter will be successful, this game honestly just deserves to be fully released it's already too good!! I already love the art and the voices of each character so much 


Victor seems just like the type I like to see flustered. :D The Nightmare Prince sounds mysterious too. I hope the kickstarter will be successful!


So nice!! I loved this preview and am excited for the future full release!

Such a pretty MC! You are super talented! I would love to see the world through your eyes, your artwork is so perfect!


Ah! Thank you but I'm not the artist! The artist is credited in game.  It's actually Keiran. Still, thank you for the compliments!


Good luck on the crowdfunding! At least I'm interested to see who Nightmare Prince is :D


He's a fun character to write, hehe. I'm 21k into his route and my betas like him quite a bit so far!
