I want to thank everyone who added my game to wishlist and are waiting for it! Also thanks to all my Twitter subscribers following the development process. I am so happy that someone is interested in my work :) Thank you so much!
On to the news. Unfortunately, I realized that I’ll need a few more weeks to get the game all finished and ready to go. So the release will be in December, not in November, as planned earlier. But no more postponements after that! I’m working on my game every day in order to release it as soon as possible and not have you wait any longer.
Now about the first chapter. It will take you 30 min to an hour in real time to complete. It will introduce you to the main characters and the beginning of our story.
My game is not focused on puzzle solving. The main thing you can get from the dialogues and the environment is information. The more attention you pay to the details, the better understanding of the story you will get. For instance, this girl must be holding something back from you, and that guy definitely has some secrets. Not all characters are essential so finding a wolf in sheep's clothing will be quite a challenge.
I should also mention that my game is based on H. P. Lovecraft’s universe. Of course, I’m putting my own twist on it, but this universe will be the core of the game. And to those who are familiar with H. P. Lovecraft’s works, the gameplay will be even more exciting. Especially after you realize where you are :)
Also, each chapter will have a hidden secret (the button hinting at it will be right on the menu screen). If you succeed in solving it, the storyline will expand. Not for the main characters, just for you :)
A few things about me. I’m creating this game on my own and this whole process is new to me. I’ve never created games, drawn or done animation before. I’ve also never written scripts or dialogues (except for those weird stories I wrote in my teens years ago :D, but this doesn’t count). The whole game is a quintessence of my ideas, inspirations and trying myself in the directions I want to progress in. So I’m welcoming any constructive feedback and advice on how certain aspects of the game can be improved.
And finally, some dull numbers. The final release date will most likely be announced just a few days before the release. The first chapter will cost $2.99. To celebrate the release, there will be a 10% discount for the first week.
If you are interested in the project and would like to help me with it, I would be happy if you could join the game testing (just to add some variety to our wonderful tester team that includes my friends and my cat :D). In return, your name/nickname will be mentioned in the credits and you will get a free copy of the first chapter.
If you are an influencer or a Steam curator and you would like to make a video/review etc., you are welcome to reach out to me on Keymailer, Steam or via any of my contacts.
And I just created the Discord server, join us!
That’s all from me. Thank you for your time, enjoy great mysterious and dark games! :)
