Zodiac•Axis is a visual novel that blends suspense, romance, and Asian-inspired fantasy elements using charming characters and a lush worldlore.

You play as Alison Hart, a fresh-out-of-college journalism graduate who is shortly employed at an infamous online tabloid. At first, you're not worried—even when you're assigned to investigate six people who are rumored to carry the Spirits of the Zodiacs. It's just a nonsensical tabloid job. Right?
