A friendly and mysterious stranger guides you on a night out in Kawami. It's your first time in the big city. Make it count. 

One Night in Kawami, an updated remake of Out of Phase Synchronicity, is a short taste of a longer story Brand New Whatever aims to develop. You might like this if you're into:

  • urban fiction & fantasy
  • fun nights out in the city
  • meeting new friends
  • distorted guitars
  • dunking on annoying wannabes
  • questioning reality

If you like this game, tell your friends! If you don't, tell the ones you don't like! 

Every donation I get here helps me reach closer to developing a full version in the future. This story isn't over yet!

Hey this was cool! Felt really short, but that's of course a good thing :) I hope you get to make the full game!

Hey Arto! Thanks for the kind words, glad you liked the game - and I'm certain this isn't the last you'll hear of Kawami. <3


Looks cool. Any mac version on the way ?

Hey there Norman! Thanks. I've uploaded a Mac build for v1.01, though I don't have the means to test it. I mean, I've tried it once on a work computer that isn't mine, which isn't ideal. Can you download it and give it a try?


It works perfectly ! Well done that's great :-)

Phew, that's a relief! Thank you for testing it out - and I hope you enjoy the ride. :)


Yeah that was really cool ! Characters are really well written and the story is original. Bravo :-)


nice novel

Thank you! Glad you liked it. :)
