Still in early alpha stage, NOWHERE aims to be a holistic first person experience set within a mystic cosmos, focusing on emergent player-driven storytelling, strong social AI and high replayability through the use of procedural content, combining gameplay elements of exploration, survival, strategy, communication and adventure.
Our story arc aims to explore human topics such as family, science, religion, politics, culture and history as well as shed light on existential themes such as fate, choice and free will, seen through the unfamiliar lens of individuals in a post humanist, post singularian alien society.
NOWHERE was born out of a personal desire to make sense of the human condition through the pursuit of new experiences. We believe that games can relate wisdom; we are convinced that playing games can lead to new perspectives and better life decisions in a fun way. With NOWHERE we aim to contribute to this line of thought.
This is the day. The day that our love child NOWHERE goes into official crowd-funding to allow us to work full time on the game that we always wanted to play.
The NOWHERE site has been completely rebooted and now features the concept trailer that we have put everything into within the past week. Until now I was very hesitant to give the big picture away, but as we depend on your support, this is the last ace that I had in my sleeve.
Much love also goes out to the great folks from Humble Store who are shouldering the payment process for us. Buying NOWHERE will now add the alpha to your existing humble account. If you already have an account with us, you'll still receive new Alphas this way, with an option to migrate NOWHERE to your Humble account if you like, and the ability to upgrade your tier.
We hope that you'll love what we're doing and ask you to tell everyone you know about NOWHERE. The internet is a noisy place, so let's be the loudest, if only for half an hour. Our success is your success.

@byakuichi as managing a forum is pretty demanding, we were kind of hoping the community would eventually pick that one up.
