A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows and macOS

Kickstarter Successfully Funded!

"The ocean calls to me, and I think I might answer it..." 

Dive into the 1950s and explore an eldritch-horror-infested world soaked in dark magic, mystery, and romance. Call Me Under takes place in the mysterious underwater city of Styx, a haven inhabited by humans, sirens, and a host of unknown otherworldly entities. 

Play as a choice of two different faceless protagonists from The Surface seeking to leave their past behind and start fresh in a new city, even if it is one only rumored to exist at the bottom of the ocean. They do say there's nothing like a clean slate...

But maybe not if you find yourself thrown into the middle of a brewing fight between the Shadows and the Light; two ancient, otherworldly entities embroiled in a centuries-long battle for power. 

Call Me Under is rated Mature 17+ for strong language, sexual themes, dark humor, violence, body horror/blood, and eldritch horrors.

Call Me Under will have:

- 60+ unique CGs
- Over 25 possible endings (good and bad!)
- 6 individual romances
- 2 polyamorous romances
- And MUCH more! 

Our demo is a very early example of what you will see in the final game, with many elements and features still a work in progress. We created this preview with the intent of introducing you to the characters and giving you a peek into the world of Styx, and we look forward to bringing you an incredible game when completed!  Blue is the only character that is voiced in the demo, but all seven of our main characters will be in the completed game.

This is our first non-episodic project and will be released as a full game. We are aiming for a Fall/Q4 2021 release on Steam, itch.io, and Nintendo Switch (eShop). 


Archie, The Doctor (he/him) - Voiced by Stephen Fu
Eve, The Medium (they/them) - Voiced by Farah Naz Rishi
Callie, The Songbird (she/her) - Voiced by Tracy Ifeachor 
Penny, The Private Eye (she/her) - Voiced by Allegra Clark
Blue, The Fallen (he/him) - Voiced by Robbie Daymond
Adrien, The Siren (they/he) - Voiced by Noshir Dalal

Do you guys have an estimate for when the full game/the first few chapters are coming out?

Will there be a pre-order for the full release? Asking because WTNC and EK already have my heart and it's been one of the few things that make me immensely happy at home so really, just take my money. I'm genuinely so happy for you guys and grateful for all you do :') 

Yes! We plan on adding it a little closer to release at the end of the year though :)

Yey! Thank you so much!

Beautiful demo. Can't wait for the full release!

Wow, Callie is so attractive 

Had a ton of fun checking out this demo! Can't wait for the full game.

I just finished playing both demos and I have no idea what I'm going to do with myself until the release. Guess I'll just stare at the ceiling...

Really, it looks like a good game and I'm so excited for it! 

So having just finished the demo (and being a huge fan of WTNC), I've come to the conclusion that Lunaris Games has a predilection for golden-eyed hotties with sharp teeth. And I heartily approve XD Can't wait for the full game <3

Demo was chef’s kiss can’t (totally can) wait for its release.

Can I just say, I can't believe you guys are working on a third game??? Like I've been around since chapter 3/4 of WTNC and I'm super amazed and proud of the whole team and their incredible efforts.

That's so kind of you, thank you so much!

Will this game be available for preorder?

Yes! But it’ll be a bit closer to release later this year 

Awesome, I can't wait!

I like, don't have any money right now but I hope when this comes out I get to play it fully! Currently about to play the demo of this!!

This game...WAS SO AMAZING!! Everything about both the demos was just...AAAA I CAN'T PUT IT INTO WORDS. I'm highly invested in the story after playing the first and second demo and...the characters (Which- they're all so gorgeous-) and the music- I just can't wait for this to come out completely! I hope I'll be able to get it by then.

I have to say I love both your previous games, but I made the worst decision ever... I played the demos for CMU and now I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE RELEASE! My poor heart with a tease such as this! (Blue's voice certainly sped it up too.)

I am very excited for the game to come out in full, because lets face it with EK I'm very impatient about the bimonthly chapter releases because I'm always eager for the new amazing chapters that you work so hard to develop (although it does mean that I play the game from the start each time, so I can't complain).

My only question is, will we get more information on what a Skia is? In mythology it's a shade or spirit, but I'm assuming it doesn't have the same connotation in CMU? Is there's going to be something similar to the information board in EK? Or will there be an explanation piece somewhere in the dialogues?

I can't express how much I love you work and look forward to many more games to come! <3

FINALLY I could play this! Yes yes, I know the first demo was out for a long time, but I'm just a weird person who usually follows ONE SINGLE route in games - don't worry, I find that perfectly enjoyable! And in this case, the first thing was that I wanted my character to be a skia, so I wasn't able to play until the second demo.

Aaanyway!  It was awesome! Honestly, because of the setting, I had my doubts for this one. The ambience of the story is not as much of my thing as WTNC and EK, so yeah, it was hit or miss. Fortunately, it was a hit!

So far, the story is intriguing and compelling, and I'm really glad I waited for the second demo. I like the characters - all of them - though the only one I see as a romance option is Blue. Not a bad thing considering my "one route" thing - I won't have to feel conflicted.

And man Blue is gorgeous!

The demo is a bit too short for me to give proper feedback, aside from gushing about how great it was so yeah... Good job on making another great thing, and I'll be waiting for the full game!


I DO have a small question though! I don't do poly routes in games, and well... In WTNC my chosen romance was Alkar, and that wasn't an issue since the game didn't really officially establish anything between him and Omen unless the player followed the poly route. On the other hand, I feel a bit uneasy as I progress in EK, since my chosen love interest is Raiden (Knight route), and there's already something going on between him and Lucien, so I feel a bit bad for "breaking" it, though it doesn't seem like a very deep relationship so I manage, at least for now... Without spoiling too much, how is it with Blue and Adrien? From the demo alone, I have a hard time deducing what exactly is their relationship and I don't want to find myself in a situation where my MC would break an actual couple. As I said, not asking for spoilers, just a heads up if I'm at risk of feeling unconfortable or not!

one the Poly romance is Blue and Adrien? :D >w< i can't wait more to love, and other is Callie and penny?

Yes! Correct :)

Honestly the atmosphere here is what's really selling me. All of the characters are gorgeously written (and gorgeous, period) as always, but the music! The setting! The hints of something darker dangling just out of sight! I'm hooked. You've really outdone yourselves here.

AHH!!!! I'm so excited for this game, blue has definitely stolen my heart already! 

I love all your games so much and am super excited for this one!!! it looks so good oh my goodness

(1 edit)

oooh, cant wait to hear more about the Skia or what the other option is, I loved picking half fae before

Not sure why but I get an error when I try to skip parts that I have already read.

idk why but the download isn't working for me... it just doesn't start after I click download.

That’s usually a connection error sorry! 

yeah and I dunno if in your house your fam or maybe you use VPN xD. I I am new and noticed that if I have it on, it won't let me dl it. I have to disconnect it for a few minutes to start and finihs my dl

Just played the demo - LOVE the BGM! Can't wait to romance Blue and Adrien.

This gives me such strong Bioshock vibes - I love it <3

I'm so excited to see the full game! Thank you for the hardwork Lunaris Games!

This game is awesome!!!!!!

i'm in love

will your previous games possibly have voice work as well?

I know they're working on voicing When the Night Comes.  I believe it is supposed to come out in 2021.

omg omg YES
