Description

Are you curious about what it's like to be a disobedient squid ANN 2.35f with four tentacles controlling a whole train? Ridiculous? No! DARK TRAIN is a 2D atmospheric hardcore adventure (no hints, no text, no help!) in an oppressive setting full of handmade papercut visuals, logical puzzles and mysteries about famous inventor D. W. Tagrezbung. As a player your task is simple. Leave the gates of Border City.

History

Paperash Studio was formed in 2013 by a group of friends who earlier met at studies in the Czech Republic and cooperated on parallel works or short film projects. Now our main goal is to develop video games that offer different experience and gameplay. To achieve this, we combine various types of art and technology such as hand-made illustrations, paper creations, writings and also high-quality audiovisual digital post-production.

Features

  • story - strong narrative with dynamic action gameplay
  • exploration - non-casual exploratory game feel
  • atmosphere - dark oppressive setting
  • narration - non-textual, situational
  • audiovisuals - paper-made art-style, music & sounds
  • no hints, no help - there is always a way to solve it
