What is Caged?

Caged is a kinetic visual novel that is being developed in Ren'Py by so far one person. Might eventually have puzzles or minigames. It touches upon sensitive subjects, so proceed with caution if you'd like to follow the development. It also is going very slowly, unfortunately, and the release date is unknown, if there will ever be one.
