Leap of Faith Game Synopsis


Faith is a do-good college student with a crusader's heart. She loves her hometown, a small village in upstate New York, and is working hard to preserve a special old house on the outskirts of town. One evening, Faith’s preservation efforts and a burst of magic mysteriously collide, and she is pulled back in time to the American Revolutionary War. Working in the past, Faith teams up with the original occupants of her favorite house to help save their home and their village from British invasion. Together they play a pivotal role in the Burning of the Valleys military campaign, and help lead the American Patriots to victory.

Leap of Faith is an Otome visual novel video game with five romance routes.
