After three months of arduous development, I am happy to announce that Triptych - Chapter I is released to the public! This release is the first of three entries in a horror/mystery series set in the early 1900's and late 1800's. In this Chapter, you play as Jeremiah Stone, a man fleeing from his home in pursuit of an amorphous, rolling creature which has hunted him for three decades. Jeremiah's past is reflected upon, and he confronts his fear once and for all.
Chapter I is around 25-35 minutes in length and is the first part of three in a planned Lovecraftian mystery series. Triptych uses a unique retrospective narrative, and this release is canonically the last of the chapters, but released first, for context. Chapter II takes place decades earlier, and Chapter III will be even farther back, explaining why he was cursed in Chapter I. All of Triptych is an experimental, artistic mod series and less of a conventional horror story than Worry of Newport was, and more of a polished and unique story-first experience, complete with a light usage of puzzles, levers, lanterns and keys--all things previously unseen in Cryengine 2.
Upon playing we implore you to leave your thoughts, requests, and feedback in review form upon completion of Chapter I. This is a canonical series, so your feedback is essential to perfecting the mythology as we continue.
Triptych is developed and written by myself, and is in association/published by Dark Craft Studios. But this is a one man show development wise; I am the only one working on it physically. I will be supporting all three Chapters extensively with patches if they need them, and when all Chapters are released and finalized, they will be bundled as a single continuous playthrough.
