How Far is Far Enough?
STILL THERE is a story-driven psychological adventure game about lingering grief, technical puzzles, wacky AIs and dark humour. Evade the past, welcome oblivion, make the perfect Italian coffee.
After receiving an emergency radio transmission, the routines of an isolated space-lighthouse keeper and his AI companion are broken forever. Confront, console and confess through dialogues with rich and compelling characters. A classic, humane, sci-fi mystery.
You’ll earn a living as Karl Hamba, sole operator of The Bento; monitoring and repairing its core systems alongside Gorky, your on-board artificial intelligence. Study your environment to understand the complex functions of the station, report back to your inept employers and discover your true purpose.
In between your daily tasks you’ll find plenty to occupy yourself with. Challenge Gorky to a game of chess, nurture a pet tuatara and recycle your own urine into another “delicious” meal. The Bento is brimming with detail and interesting ways to interact with everything you see.
The 2020 edition of the digital convention LudoNarraCon, which celebrates narrative video games is now live. Running from the 24th to the 27th of April, the online event hosted through Steam showcases some of the most interesting and innovative upcoming and already released narrative games.
Experience much of you'd expect from a normal convention, with over 40 games being exhibited, several panels from members of the industry to watch, sales for over 50 games and dozens of playable demos during the event to play.
There is a wide variety of panels to check out and topics to learn about throughout the event, including the evolution of game narrative, storytelling in games without dialogue and how to develop branching narratives (check out the full list in the image above!).
While there are dozens of games being showcased as part of the event from a variety of developers from around the world, including Chinatown Detective Agency, Eliza, Heaven's Vault, Mutazione, Yes, Your Grace, Beholder 2 and plenty more.
LudoNarraCon is an initiative from indie game publishing label Fellow Traveller, which aims to create a platform to spotlight and bring more attention to the many unique and upcoming narrative games being created around the world, all in a digital event format.
