Content Warning:
Patriah contains depictions of physical and sexual violence against women.

It's your eighteenth birthday, and you are now a woman. 

You descend the stairs of the manor that you've never left, and look at the four men who may be your husband. You have four days to spend with them before choosing who will own you for the rest of your life.

Be careful, because if they think they can, they will take what they want for free.

Be kind, or else you might not survive to your wedding day.

Who will you choose?

Patriah is about navigating situations outside of your control, and maintaining a balance when interacting with predators. Learn about each of your potential suitors to anticipate their anxieties, their shortcomings, and survive untainted and unmaimed to your wedding day. 

This demo contains the route for Joshua - The Man in Glasses. He's patient, driven, and rich. He will do his best to win you over, as long as you follow the rules.

Hello. I had and an error in a dialog when I  tried to say "yes" I like astronomy/science in the library.  

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

While running game code:
  File "game/joshua_dates.rpy", line 530, in script
    $science_self = true
  File "game/joshua_dates.rpy", line 530, in <module>
    $science_self = true
NameError: name 'true' is not defined

Please continue your work and good luck. 

I can't wait for more of this game. It's dark but addictive. c':
