Exit Veil is a 3D turn-based dark-psychedelic JRPG which combines the essence of classics JRPGs with mystical themes of tarot and the occult. Innovative, healer-focused combat pushes players to think more about survival than damage. Combined with a real life tarot deck featuring art by Imazato, players can explore a beautiful but decaying world and unlock the mysteries of the realms.
Cherrymochi began work on Exit Veil in 2019, and was working on pre-production through the pandemic. It launched on Kickstarter, and raised ¥14.4m in August 2022. Cherrymochi debuted a demo of the game at Tokyo Game Show 2023.

Tarot card system which is not just decorative —it's a meaningful part of the gameplay and the game’s world.
