Working under the auspices of a video game business known as “Whale Team”, I am currently working to create a game called Anastasiya.

The game is a text adventure / visual novel that takes place in cyberspace. Naturally, the servers of this cyberspace are located on a deep-space satellite. The story begins with an investigation regarding the death of the satellite’s creator, and further develops into a much grander mystery. It has puzzle aspects. It has characters. A thrilling story. It’s small. It’s swell. We really hope you enjoy this. I mean… really… we do.

Progress Update: 63% Complete
Story Length: 20,938 words

Act 5 Completed

1 year ago News 1 comment

So. We completed the fifth act today, which is very much the largest act of the game, and contains an impressive amount of story telling. The act is a split act (user can choose 2 different routes through the story), and thus required double the effort. We're now on to Act 6, which will likely be completed much sooner.

Admittedly, Act 5 took a long time. But I didn't want to sacrifice quality for time. Here are some screens.

Yeah :) It is also similar to a visual novel, or a puzzle game - like Myst.

We are building an adventure game that revolves around a forgotten cyberspace satellite known as Anastasiya. The game will be much like a visual novel, but we currently intend to place a much higher emphasis on puzzle and RPG elements.
