Taarradhin is a visual novel released by Cyanide Tea for Nanoreno, an event held by the visual novel community in which you create a visual novel in the month of March.

A seven-year drought plagues the entire region surrounding the country of Nishtif, leading people to wonder if their goddess Scheknt has abandoned them. In contrast, young noblewoman Neqtia has lived a comfortable life insulated from hardship and suffering. One of the poorer surrounding countries, Djedi, sends their usual tribute of natural resources and livestock to Nishtif in exchange for the larger country's aid and protection. Rumors that two attractive slaves are among the cargo intrigue Neqtia. What lies in store for her after the slaves are brought to live at her family estate...?

Taarradhin is a Ren'Py visual novel. As such, it is available for Windows, Mac (requires 64-bit Intel Macintosh running OS X 10.6 or later), and Linux.

You don't need a credit card to download the game. We decided to use Gumroad again mostly for the nice feature of being able to contact people who downloaded the game (for updates, bug fixes, etc). As with Nachtigal, however, you can download the game for free. All you have to do is put in your email address (Gumroad sends you a link to the game as well so you don't lose it), enter in a $0 amount, and then press Give. This will take you straight to the next page where you can press Download. If you would like to donate some money, any amount would be much appreciated.

Please also consider updating your graphic card drivers before playing Taarradhin. If you're having display problems, please check out this help page in the Ren'Py documentation.

If you play the game, please use the #taarradhin Twitter hashtag or Taarradhin Tumblr tag if you can!

Taarradhin is a visual novel done by Cyanide Tea for NaNoRenO 2014. As usual, all writing/programming was done by Lorelei while all of the art and UI design was done by Auro-Cyanide. Auro also came up with the story and characters this time around. The music is all stock music by Pierrot Lunaire. Special thanks to Kitty for beta testing!

Also, please consider subscribing to the Cyanide Tea newsletter!
