Description [fr]

Un pointer-et-cliquer mettant en scène un passionné d'épée et un personnage sorti d'une réalité parallèle, par la Duael Team (Shaynn Haugen aka Mole-chan) & others.
Il utilise le moteur Ren'Py.

Duael est un pointer-et-cliquer incorporant des scènes de combats / un visual novel mettant en scène un adolescent passionné d'épée et un personnage sorti d'une réalité parallèle.

Walter est un adolescent qui adore pratiquer un jeu de combat populaire : l'escrime à l'épée. Un autre personnage, très particulier, un épéiste dénommé Cadfael, est nettement plus habile que lui. Il note même qu'il ressent une certaine connexion avec ce personnage, exercant sur lui une ascendance naturelle.

Toutefois, il ne sait pas que Cadfael, et bien d'autres, existent réellement dans leur propre réalité, qui a rapidement sombré dans le chaos. Plusieurs ont réussi à forger un lien avec «notre» monde, étant contrôlés par un «partenaire» bénéficiant d'une connaissance et d'une perspective, dont ils ne font pas usage, afin de tirer parti de l'avantage dont ils ont besoin pour survivre.

Mais Cadfael devient las et désespéré de tenter de vaincre le mal au lieu de simplement se battre pour sa vie, et il essaie de contacter Walter. Il y parvient, et une véritable forme de lien s'établit entre eux.

A présent que Walter est en mesure de contrôler Cadfael dans la bataille et que leurs vies sont devenues profondément liées, Walter se retrouve impliqué dans un combat pour sauver ce monde secret.

Et c'est là que leur aventure commence.

Nota : le jeu contient des scènes optionnelles comportant un contenu réservé aux adultes.

Description [en]

DUÆL is a Visual Novel with RPG (role playing game) elements.

A visual novel is a type of text-oriented, story driven game most popular in Japan, where the plot is advanced by presenting the user with choices that affect the outcome of the game.

DUÆL utilizes the story-driven nature of the visual novel and combines it with RPG conventions such as Turn-Based combat, character stats, and levels, to present its story in an exciting and interactive way.

The player takes the role of Walter, a teenage boy who finds himself in control of a fictional swordsman who turns out to not be so fictional. In this way, the player can experience the story from a vantage point very similar to the protagonist, deepening their immersion in the story.

The game will be very heavily story-based, with 3 possible endings. An average run of the game takes 6 hours.

The final build of the game has been released on 7/2/2013.



Walter is a teenage boy who enjoys a popular fighting game. There is one particular character, a swordsman named Cadfael, who he is most skilled with. He even notes he feels a certain connection to the character, as controlling him has become so natural.

However, he does not know that Cadfael, and many others, actually exist in their own reality, which is quickly descending into chaos. Several have somehow managed to forge a connection with "our" world, being controlled by a "partner" who has a knowledge and perspective they don't, in order to get the advantage they need to survive.

But Cadfael is becoming weary and desperate to overthrow the evil instead of simply fighting for his life, and tries to contact Walter. He succeeds, and forms a much more literal connection between them.

Now with Walter able to control Cadfael in battle, their lives have become deeply entangled, and Walter finds himself involved in a fight to save this secret world.

This is where their adventure begins.
