I loved the demo and I cant wait for the full game. I love the art style and the story was really interesting. You have done a great job and I cant wait to see more!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
"Let me tell you a story about a university divided by ideals,
a university split into factions...
Once there were none, then there were two.
Soon, they will be gone."
Just as they enroll at University, Coral is thrown into a conflict of rivaling factions.
After an unprecedented election result, the balance on campus is already disturbed and with the emergence of an anonymous group whose sole goal is to destroy the faction system no matter the cost, a time of sudden change awaits the students of University.
Defaction is a narrative game about societal expectations and (not) fitting in.
- Take control of Coral, a first semester history student who finds themselves in midst a conflict of ideals that has been brewing for more than half a century.
- Choose a faction and stay loyal to them, or defect to a group you can better identify with.
- Use Coral's phone to interact with other characters and the world, explore the campus, and change the system into something that you can stand for.
As of now, Defaction is currently in development.
The demo you can find here is a prologue chapter to the main story.

Absolutely in love with the demo, and cannot wait until full release!!! And I think I share everyone's joy in seeing a familiar face, Snow, here as well :) One question: would it be possible to add even more customization options to the MC? For instance, more body types, eye shapes, hair styles, and perhaps even clothing? I think adding more options to customize might make even more room for relating to the MC and experiencing the world through the MC. Anyway, continue to make the beautiful work that you do, all the best!
We're happy you liked the demo!!
About the character customization options: You're absolutely right about the player's relation to the MC! We definitely want to have a bit more options for the final game, like i.e. additional hairstyles and sets of eyes. We also need to consider that the more styles there are the more work has to be done for special illustrations depicting varying MCs in the main game. But we'll try to do our best to have players enjoy the story through the eyes of their unique MC. ö-ö
Thank you very much for pointing out the importance of this! And of course playing the demo! :D
woah this was incredible!!!! I'm so excited for the full game!
The demo was so good! Beautiful graphics and a really engaging storyline; I'm excited to see how the relationship between the two factions and our MC's role progresses! It was also wonderful to see Snow from To:Do. Great job guys!
Thank you so much! We're really happy you like it :D
And including Snow again was something we're pretty excited about!
Thanks for playing <3
It took me a second to realize, but Snow's in here too! Very happy x3
where/when is demo? xD
Right now we plan to release the demo around mid-June (you can find some more infos in our devlogs).
Thanks for being interested in our game!
I already posted a comment last month (ABOUT HOW FREAKING AMAZING THIS GAME LOOKS AND HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR WORK SO MUCH DID I MENTION THAT IT'S AMAZING?) but I was just wondering how much the game is going to cost when it does come out (and also when do you see a demo or whatever going up)?
Thanks for commenting again!
We haven't fully decided on a price yet but we'll definitely announce what the game will cost once we get closer to its release.
As for the demo, there was a small delay so we currently plan to release it in June. Ideally it will only take a few more weeks so it hopefully won't be that much of a wait. We're happy you're excited for Defaction and we hope you'll like the demo!
Holy moly! This game looks AMAZING! If there was a demo, I would totally download this! I loved the game you made; TODO Today, I cannot wait for the finished version to be completed! Do you know when they would be complete? And AHH you guys are AMAZING at art! This is incredible! Thank you so much for sharing your talent! <3
Aa, your comment made us really happy! ^0^ About the releases:
We've written in a past devlog that //TODO: today would be complete by August this year. We'll continue work on it after we've released the Defaction demo this May. We're going to reveal more about the Defaction main game in the future! :>
Thanks for your interest and we hope you'll like Defaction when it's released!
I can't wait for this!!! :)
Can't wait to try this! Thank you for all your hard work <3
This looks awesome! I'm really excited to play this! The style looks fantastic and I'm so glad you considered different genders, races, bodies, etc. Story sounds intriguing too! Wishing you luck in your development process and eagerly awaiting the demo release!
Even though such character variety comes with a bunch of work we really wanted to do this! We're happy you appreciate the ideas and the look! :3 Hopefully you'll like the demo when it's released!
I honestly cant wait to play this! And I'm so glad you guys include they/them pronouns.
We're happy you're excited for Defaction! Inclusion is important for us with this project, so they/them pronouns were something we definitely wanted to include. And we hope you'll enjoy the demo when it's released!
I literally cannot wait until you guys release this. All of your other games are amazing and I love your overall style - definitely gonna be a great game!
I am already excited for this. I've played some of your previous games, and I know this one is going to be just as awesome.
