Richard and Alice are prisoners. Both their cells have a leather sofa and a state-of-the-art computer. But only Richard’s has a TV. Outside, the snow falls. It has done for some time. Elsewhere, they say, parts of the world have been rendered an inhospitable desert, the earth parched and cracked. People live in the zones now. The lucky ones, anyway. Richard and Alice have secrets. *** A mystery story about family, desperation and the weather, set to the beat of an indie adventure game.
Indie adventure game, available for just $5.99 on Desura, gets great reviews in Edge, Rock Paper Shotgun and more!

So it's two weeks since we released Richard & Alice, and everything's been going rather swimmingly. We just wanted to thank everyone who's bought the game so far - it's super-appreciated!
In case some of you are still on the fence, we thought we'd share with you some of the reviews we've been getting - so have a look below the image for those. Reading through some of these makes us incredibly proud, and excited about what we want to do next...
Thanks again to everyone who's supported us this far!
