A fusion of card-based RPGs and adventure games, Black Book is a haunting tale of a young sorceress, who gave her life to serve the dark forces. Dive into the cold, yet alluring world of Slavic folktales—and uncover the secrets that hide in the darkness.

A young girl named Vasilisa, destined to become a witch, decides to throw her fate away and marry her beloved—but that dream is shattered when her betrothed dies under mysterious circumstances.

Aching for her lost love, Vasilisa seeks out the Black Book—a demonic artifact, said to be powerful enough to grant any wish to the one who uncovers all seven of its seals. Join Vasilisa in her adventures across the rural countryside, as she solves the woes of common folk by confronting demons and performing exorcisms.
