Hand of Horzasha is a visual novel set in a town of monsters. Forge bonds with the townsfolk as you solve local mysteries and face off in high-stakes disputes. As you unravel the secrets of the Gibal Valley, your choices will reflect the public's opinion of your actions. Once per month, you have a chance to stay in town free of charge or be evicted and left to survive in a perilous wilderness. Hand of Horzasha places you in the shoes of Diala Joulsae, an explorer sent by the human world to map out uncharted lands. Upon arriving, she is beset by local wildlife when a race of people called the Meire come to her rescue. Sheltering Diala in their idyllic village, the Meire show her their way of life and offer her refuge in exchange for labor. Stranded for the time being, Diala agrees. But after meeting Aurelia, an unattended orphan who is ignored by all, Diala finds a new reason to put her journey on hold. What happens next will change her life irreversibly. Players will discover a cast of unusual characters, almost none of whom are human. In order to keep staying in the village and unraveling its mysteries, Diala will need to be on good terms with the seven powerful families who rule Randall Village. They will vote at the end of each month on whether to continue sheltering or to evict their refugee residents, whom they call "Lessers." With the help of others in her position, Diala will endure many hardships in order to uncover the truth, including the dreaded trial spoken of only in whispers: "Obosolph."
