Watercress, founded in August of 2014 on the Katawa Shoujo subreddit, was initially inspired by the emotional narrative of Katawa Shoujo. Shortly after conception, we set out to create our own visual novel, Avitus. Seven years and more than a dozen releases later, we're still creating VNs that we love, with a heavy focus on character-driven narratives. Our games are often in the genres of 'nakige' or 'utsuge', and many of them don't have the happiest of endings. With a team of over fifty hardened and experienced individuals, we're finally setting our sights once again on our end goal: Avitus.
