A castle, nestled deep in the forests of Stiria. A lonely girl living with her father. Laura longs for the company of someone her age; and then, a sudden crash in the night brings a new and mysterious friend in their house. Beautiful, fascinating Carmilla.
The two girls bond quickly and easily, but a dark shadow looms heavily in the apparently peaceful valleys of Stiria: an unknown sickness drags young boys and girls to an early death. In the meanwhile, Laura experiences strange and disturbing dreams and episodes of precognition, while Carmilla wavers between moments of extreme excitement and days of apathy.
In a struggle between rationalism and magic, between ancient lore and science, the enemy is never where you would expect and apparently wields superhuman powers...
Follow how the story unfolds, track events on the ancient map, listen to the music and share illustrations with your friends!
The Carmilla experience is available in English, Chinese and Italian.
