Narcissu is a free visual novel by stage-nana, following a twenty year-old diagnosed with a terminal illness.


Released for PC, Mac, and Linux on August 1, 2005, Narcissu is a visual novel by Stage-Nana. The game follows an unnamed protagonist who has been diagnosed with a terminal lung cancer. While in the hospital, he meets a woman being treated for an unidentified terminal illness, and the two agree to run away together.
