A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

A conversion of all Plato's Dialogues to a Kinetic Visual Novel for the Sega Mega Drive (aka Sega Genesis) and Android, Windows and HTML5.

The "game" was made with VNMD (based on VNDS), SGDK for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive. 

And with Godot for Android, Windows and Linux (all builds are debug builds), Windows and HTML.

Versions with talkie in the name are around 1.6gb.

All art was generated with Stable Diffusion, then altered with Aseprite and Gimp.

Voices were generated with TorToiSe-tts with sample from LibriVox

All translations are by Benjamin Jowett or George Burges.

The order of the books is based on the Dramatic Dating found in this site:


The source of the game in the VNDS format is also released here.
