Countless individuals have vanished inside the Bermuda Triangle. By this day and age, many have written these disappearances off as myths. Edward and his friends, however, will learn that the triangle is in fact quite real.

Bermuda is a six episode visual novel that explores the values of trust and deceit. The game is fully voiced and will run for around an hour or two in length. I aim to be succinct with my narratives and this one will be no different. Thank you for your understanding.

Here's Bermuda's website:


Here's a post from Siliconera about the game:


Please be sure to vote for Bermuda on Steam Greenlight:


Music: Matt Hamm (Brainfed.net)

Here are the characters you will meet in Bermuda:

Edward: The story’s protagonist. Edward has been devoted to God since childhood. This inspires him to have trust in others. Fortunately, his friends do their best to fend off those who wish to abuse his faith. Now trapped inside the Mothership, only time will tell if he can stay true to who he is.

Voice: Miguel Moran (Rival Threads, Project Nimbus)

Paul: A friend of Edward’s. It is miraculous how two people so different could be getting along. Paul sees himself as a tough older brother. Edward in turn keeps Paul’s short temper in check.

Voice: Kyle Hebert (Attack on Titan, Dragonball)

Joanna: Edward’s friend from childhood. Though timid by appearance, Joanna seems to have an aggressive side that she tries to hide. Paul is currently in a relationship with her.

Voice: Xanthe Huynh (Atelier Meruru, Sword Art Online)

Finyomu: The Mothership’s acting commander. Finyomu yearns for peace between the surfacers and her people. She does her best to carry the burden of being a commander on her small shoulders.

Voice: Kira Buckland (Blue Exorcist, Rinne no Lagrange)

Mukan: The Mothership’s second in command. On duty, Mukan serves as Finyomu’s most trusted enforcer. Off duty, the two are the best of friends. Mukan will never think twice about drawing blood if anyone dares harm her commander. 

Voice: Cristina Vee (K-On, Madoka Magica)

Mother: The Mothership’s true commander. Communicating from offsite, she only takes over during critical situations. Let’s hope our heroes never have to cross paths with her.

Voice: Skyler Davenport (Dormant Sky, Tokyo Hosto)

Here is a video with greetings from the voice actors:



- The story will be fully voiced, including narration.
- Features the voices of veteran actors like Kyle Hebert and Cristina Vee.
- An open ended stealth mission in each of the six episodes.
- Optional conversations for players to know the cast better.
- At least one new anime / manga styled artwork per episode.

Here is a sample video of the in-game narrative. This scene is recorded from the opening sequence:

Next, we have a sample bonus conversation between Edward and Finyomu. These relaxing chats are available before each chapter:

Last is a look at the stealth gameplay:

Risks and challenges

I have funded my own projects in the past. Though I am ready to do so again for Bermuda, I am hoping to boost my game development support through Kickstarter. The potential to reach more people through this platform is admittedly a big draw. Thank you for your consideration.
