Made Marion has released in Early Access. For our first release, the following content is available:
The Prologue, which happens before the content you experienced in our demo, both Sherwood and Nottingham Common Routes, and Robin's Route.
We will be releasing the other routes as they are completed, and welcome everyone to jump into Early Access whenever they like!
It's been a long and bumpy journey developing through the pandemic years, but we're very excited to start introducing you to our world and its lovable characters.
Made Marion Early Access Release: November 17
Made Marion will be officially entering Early Access on October 17!
Our first EA release is Robin Hood's route, which is available from start to finish. Choose your ending in chapters 1-3 and experience one of two different chapter 4s based on whether you played Marion as more straightforward and blunt or clever and diplomatic. After reaching an ending, check the Extras menu to see which Robin point-of-view scenes you've unlocked!
Made Marion will continue releasing routes in Early Access as they are completed. Players are welcome to jump into Early Access whenever they like and will have access to all released content from that point forward.
We're very excited to welcome you to the world of Avalon. Fight for freedom and fall in love!
Get Medieval at the Steam VN Fest
The Steam VN Fest starts today. Are you feelin' Medieval? Make sure to wishlist Made Marion if you haven't already, and also take a moment to check out the lovely Imperial Grace!
If you're a fan of Made Marion, you probably enjoy a kickass Medieval woman and some politically-charged romance. You should also check out Imperial Grace, which shares a lead artist with Made Marion. Play as a powerful empress, guide your empire to prosperity or ruin, and perhaps find love along the way! Check out the demo, it's a lot of fun! Personally, I have a weakness for the grumpy Theodore and the charming Asha, but fans of devoted knights will also love the handsome Alexander!
The Made Marion community has overwhelmingly encouraged us to release Early Access so that readers can enjoy each route as it is completed. We will start our Early Access release this fall with Robin Hood's route.
Routes will only be released once they are fully complete, so this isn't an episodic schedule and there will be no cliffhangers! Players who purchase the game in Early Access will have access to all routes as they are released, up through the game's full release with the completion of Lord Geoffrey and Gui's route.
Thanks so much to all our fans for your patience during our pandemic-related development delays. We're very excited to be able to start sharing Made Marion with you this fall!
Who else would go first in our Robin Hood-themed romance game but Robin Hood himself? Is there more to this charming scoundrel than meets the eye?

Made Marion Demo Available
Made Marion, the romantic Robin Hood visual novel, now has a demo available on Steam!
Check out both our Sherwood Forest and Nottingham paths - Marion's story is completely different depending on which one you pick. Meet all seven of our love interests and get an idea of the role-playing choices you'll be making on their routes.
Can you find the secret kiss scene in Sherwood (hint: It's not with one of the main game's love interests) and the unfortunate early bad end in Nottingham?
If you enjoy our demo, we hope you'll join us on Kickstarter. Our campaign launches Feb 16, 2021!
