the aberrant aren't like humans. they don't form relationships. they don't follow rules. and once they've found you, they don't let you live.

you'll be different of course. you'll be the first to make peaceful contact and show the world that a little love and understanding is all that's needed for humans and aberrant to coexist peacefully.

but can you stomach the true nature of the aberrant you seek to woo? or the answer to what became of your dad?

Developed for Spooktober VN Jam 2022


this game contains both depictions and descriptions of body horror, visual gore, dismemberment, psychological distress, murder, and character death. This imagery may offend some viewers. Discretion is strongly advised.


The Game

With Bodies They Walk is a horror-driven visual novel with dating sim elements.

Having just been declared as the most active aberrant site in Canada, you travel back to Gutson, Ontario to make contact, and find yourself wondering if you bit off more than you could chew when you meet 3 aberrant living in your childhood home.

Luckily, the aberrant don't seem intent on killing you... yet. But this is the chance you need. If you can show them love, and listen to their plight, maybe... just maybe, it could save innocent humans and aberrant across the world. Coexistence would be right... around... the corner.
