Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne is an action adventure video game developed and published by Rain Games.


Action, rrrrrromance (pronounced like “provence”) and mad science!

Discover the award winning, gaslamp fantasy world of Girl Genius! Experience Agatha Heterodyne’s story, as she navigates the hostile hallways, catacombs and kitchens of her ancestral home, Castle Heterodyne.

As the Lost Heir to a mad family, she must return the ancient fortress to its former glory and ascend the throne as a “True Heterodyne.” Only then can she stand up to the might of the Wulfenbach Empire and other power hungry usurpers. But first, she has to contend with a corrupted and insane AI controlling the castle, its spiky death traps, and bottomless doom-pits. Not to mention the painfully pink cherry on top, Zola Heterodyne. Another lost child? Or just another villain here to steal your thunder.

Time to find out.
