A tyrant' campaign has torn the kingdoms within Shanur apart. Firalda, a blacksmith's apprentice seeks revenge for her father's death with the help a plague doctor, a saint princess and a witch, raising hell within the castle they are imprisoned in. What evil had torn their lands apart, had made them unite under one as sisters in arms.

Roses Will Rise is a strategy RPG with visual novel elements that is slowly being built bit by bit. While the game has a path to follow with different endings, the player can do side quests to understand more about the Roses, the world they are in,and unlock items that can aid them in battle.

Please check the game's community page at the bottom of the page for the changelog.

Current build (version 0.0.23):

  • Intro + Chapter 1 text
  • Graphics (WIP)
  • Interactive points with trust system among playable characters
  • Available on Android!

What to expect in future updates (Short Term):

  • Battle system
  • Animated sprites
  • Sound effects
  • Original Soundtrack
  • Full demo (version 0.1.0)

What to expect in future updates (Long term):

  • The remaining 4 chapters
  • Sidequests
  • iOS release
  • Voice talent?
  • Full Arabic Translation (with possibility of other languages)
  • More TBA

The game is planned to be and stay free even after the game exits development. I will have an option for people to name their price if they would like to support the project once game reaches the demo phase (entire first chapter complete with battle system and graphical assets).

I might include some extras for paying players (PDF of the GDD with script is one of the few things planned).

(Note: the android version is an older version because I'm facing problems with the Android SDK. Updates to Android will return once I figure out the problem)

Rating of the game is disabled until the final build is ready.

Been a while since my last update, was distracted working on my nanoreno project even after nanoreno was over. Since Game Expo is near, I decided to get back to working on Roses since I'm trying to submit my game to their competition (which I have doubts it will qualify from the incomplete state the game is in). but I managed to add a few things in this update.


  • Added portrait - Firalda Shocked
  • Entire game reformatted for Ren'Py's latest format
  • "Changelog" button in main menu replaced with "support on patreon"
  • Different "temporary" main menu until I could figure out the new GUI better
  • "missing subtitle" bug fixed, but will need realignment in later update
  • Centered dialog text

I'm not sure if the new format broke anything if you're trying to update the game (I actually doubt it will update anyway since it's a completelty different project file), but as a safety precaution I would recommend you delete the old game and install the new one in its stead. I will not be held responsible of any bugs or broken saves that will result from the update.

Game available here

Also available on the Google Play Store (older version)

Finally getting into the final art, I have animated and illustrated the first scene where Firalda's father is calling her. The animation might get a better...
