Ever After Academy is a Romance Game Visual Novel by Voltage Entertainment USA, released through their Lovestruck app for iOS and Android devices. It debuted as a pilot in June 2020 with two available routes, and another in July 2020.
The story takes place in seaside Whitethorn Academy in Connecticut. The male protagonist is a recent law school dropout who is returning to his hometown and reuniting with his younger sister, the female protagonist, a free-spirited young woman who loves fairy-tales.
One night, their lives are changed forever when they find a hidden door to a secret, magical library, where fairy tale characters spring to life from their books. The protagonists help their new friends craft undercover identities as fellow students of Whitethorn and fit into the new, non-magical world they've found themselves in.
