About Triptych

Triptych is crafted within the embraces of Gnosticism, Occultism and Sumerian Mythology. Legend has it that an ancient civilization summoned the Demiurge down from the heavens eons ago and paid the ultimate price, but live on as a Necromantic cult that the Brothers Caulm accidentally discovered in their time. Triptych will direct a sinister narrative of the underbelly of philosophy and lost theological ideas in a subtle and insidious story of familial betrayal and Lovecraftian horror.

Written and developed by the Dark Craft Studios Banner, Triptych will be the swan song of our Cryengine 2 development coming Q1 2017.

Happy 2017 to everyone following Triptych development. In order to fully articulate all the things we accomplished in the last four months; 60% of Triptych could be shipped tomorrow, as it is done. The entire script has long been completed with all voice acting lines, too, coming to a recent end. Music is currently on standby but we have an expert composer articulating the OST and soundstage for some key moments in Triptych. I will not continue to give deadlines and then punish myself for missing them, but we will be done soon. Very soon. There are only a few elements left that need to be tied together for the story to conclude.

This brings me to the central focus of this news post, and it is that I need some volunteers to test the first 1/3rd of Triptych and provide feedback for polishing purposes. If you would like to experience Triptych before anyone else, provide feedback for myself, and maybe even make a lets play or video? You have the opportunity here.

All you need to do is post on here or PM me first and I'll provide you with some instructions on what I'm looking for and a private Dropbox link. Here is a timeline for those anxious to know our plan and currently don't follow our Trello blog.

1: Push Chapter 2 through final quality filters, tie it together. Not hard.
2: Move Chapter 3 from Beta to Stable, which will require a level makeover and some new particle engine tweaks. Moderately time consuming.
3: Hopefully by now the music will be done, so prepare for release with a trailer. Not hard.
4: Release soon. Feb-March, latest.

I should make a meme picture for these kind of mods saying „I don’t always vote 10/10 for a mod, but when I do, it’s better then a commercial game”...

Triptych is alive and well. I'm ironing out an infinite amount of polish and level design directives in order to further the experience to my vision. The trailer has been delayed because the music from the composer has also been; without music, not much of a trailer, is there? A pre-release media post will follow when that trailer is done. Stay tuned for more in the next two weeks.

I am hoping to have a final update and the full story trailer to be done December 1st. Keep posted for a slew of media updates until then. An Episodic Release is being considered; I'd love your feedback on the previously denied idea.

The fan teaser is currently the interim before the real thing, due out in a week or two. We're currently mixing the music and tidying up the visuals for it to be specific to our needs. It'll be worth it!

We're still on track for the end of this year. No holdups! Moddb added an October release date for some reason because we put in Q4 2016, sorry about the confusion/false excitement!
