In visual novel Eldet, players assume the role of Kunal, a 20-something, gay man of colour. Enrolled in a college of mages and with his family also being famous mages themselves, Kunal starts to fear that he doesn’t have any magical powers. But, when a “tomb raider” hires Kunal, the student leaves the college and ends up discovering that despite his concerns, he may actually be blessed with the gift of magic.
In addition to magical adventuring and mystery, the visual novel also promises a variety of male love interests of various body types and ethnic backgrounds. One of the “primary philosophies” of the title is that “diversity matters” and developer Marccus has just concluded a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign to make Eldet a reality.
