A downloadable visual novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Cecily, sorceress, ex-convict, and shopkeeper extraordinaire, receives a summons delivered to her door by none other than Orson, the resident magical government representative. In a desperate attempt to avoid talking to people she doesn't like, she hatches a plan with the local pariah to keep her where she is.

Not that said local pariah is aware of this. Or that Cecily necessarily goes through with the plan.

Needless to say, things start to get complicated.

Basiliska is a short fantasy visual novel about a cursed shopkeeper and a troubled sorcerer's apprentice who try to make the most out of their unfortunate circumstances. It takes around half an hour to read, and has no choices.

I really like the story. I've played this twice I think. I hope there would be a sequel of some sorts.
