Hmm… It’s kind of hard to explain all the details, but I was forced to start at this new school. It wasn’t by choice; my parents practically pushed me into it. A workaholic mother and a creepy father—my family is far from ordinary. But let’s not get sidetracked. In this school, all I wanted was to make a few friends, but… Well, you know how that turned out. Did you manage to contact my advocate? I have a feeling I’m going to need one.


Departed Away is the first visual novel released by Turkish developer Alperen Torun, also known as Nooarth. The game features a simple story about making friends in a new school and the difficulties that come with it. The development for the game started back in June 2023 with an initial goal of a September release. However, due to various issues, the release date was repeatedly set back.

The game also released a demo back in September 2023 and was featured in Steam’s Next Fest last October.
