2 year anniversary, new game in the works!

Game is 1$ starting tomorrow. Feb 16, 2016.

It's hard to believe that it has been 2 years since I released Spate. Unfortunately, while the reviews for Spate were amazing, in the end, it was not the global sales hit that i'd hoped it would be. That's ok though. Spate was a 4 year passion project of mine that taught me many things. While not perfect by any stretch, I still believe it is a wonderful game, and one that I am very proud of. The goal for Spate now is to simply get it into as many peoples hands as I can. With that said, the game will be on sale soon for just a buck. Give it a try!

New game....
I am happy to say, that after a few years of developing new ideas, I finally have one that I am moving forward with. I don't have a great elevator pitch yet, but for those curious, it's a lot like a mix of Hohokum and The Unfinished Swan. I can't wait for you all to see where that is heading!

Sincerely,
-Eric Provan

关于这款游戏

Spate is a surreal experience set in a world that seeks to draw the player into its reality. Spate is a dark, brooding, and beautifully crafted emotional journey that is seen through the eyes of a struggling addict. Created by former Disney & Jim Henson artist Eric Provan, this artistic game is a story about one man's struggle and descent into madness. Fueled by absinthe hallucinations and haunting memories, Spate delivers a deliciously eerie adventure as the main character deals with the tragic loss and grim reality of the death of his daughter.

Spate is story driven, which means there will be stretches in the game that you will have minimal interaction other than running and occasionally jumping, while the story is being narrated. And the narration is done very well, it reminds me of old black and white detective movies from the 40's.

Although I did die several times. the gameplay is not hard, nor did it reach a frustrating level.

The visuals were awesome IMO

Grab it on sale, set your expectations low, and be pleasantly surprised!

A beautiful descent into the madness of alcoholism. Short, atmospheric and emersive. Not so much a game as a short experience but definitely worth going through.

If I had to describe what this game was about in 3 words I'd say Alcohol, Family, and Depression.

I got this game after seeing it on Steams store page and decided to buy it after being impressed with It's artwork, voice acting, and story in the trailers.

This game is DARK! The nature of the game, and the overall story is really surreal, and distorted. Spate is a side scrolling story telling game where you pretty much do nothing except scroll to the side and listen to the history of the character you play.
I was really impressed by Spate. The story is outstanding, the voice acting deserves an award, and the visuals altogether are brilliant.

Even though this game only lasted 2 hours I can honestly say this was an experience like no other. I was fascinated by this game. It's not usually a game I would buy, but this has made me consider buying more side scrolling story telling games.

Spate tells the story of an alcoholic detective who cannot get over the loss of his daughter, and collapse of his marriage. When he gets a contract to look for a missing business man on the same Island his daughter went missing the story begins to unravel...

This game leaves you with two endings. It leaves you with a choice. Which one will you decide?

The story seems interesting enough. I didn't make it very far because it feels a little choppy to me, and it got frustrating to play. Someone else suggested using a controller, so maybe that would have helped but I'm on my laptop.

In the beginning you come to a robot who says "press ACTION button to continue." I have no idea what that means. Which button is the action button? It ended up being the left ALT key on my laptop, but why? There are so many other keys on my laptop, why map it there?

网上查了下,这游戏叫雨一直下。(张宇听多了?)
其实spate就是暴雨的意思,游戏开场也是下着大暴雨。

写评测时居然没好友玩过……
有点limbo的味道,但颜色更丰富,画面精美,2.5D的画面由作者的一些巧妙设计带来许多惊喜。

游戏操作就是跑跑跳跳,方向、ctrl、alt、空格……上手很简单,在游戏中那些场景细节让我眼前一亮。场景里的风吹草动、水体反光、闪电、烟雾、各种奇特的植物、雕塑,还有人物角色的画风,这些细节都刻画的蛮不错。环境的声音很有融入感,还有偶尔的吟唱、悲凉的小提琴乐段给整个游戏世界衬托出一股悬疑、神秘的气氛。有些时候解迷需要喝上一口,整个世界变得扭曲,可以跳得更远,甚至停止物体摆动,这个设计也很有创意。

推荐一玩!

这是我玩过的最诡异的独立游戏之一了。可是游戏玩下去并没有期待的独特剧情和神奇玩法,全程真是无聊至及,互动少得可怜。只有旁白时有时无地讲述主角的故事,主角喝酒导致妻离子散,仅次而已还bb了一遍又一遍。 我忍着只为看结局,结果没有任何挑战地解决邪恶博士,剧情缘由啥也没讲就结束了。 整个游戏就1小时的流程却让人感觉忍受了好几小时的时间得到个烂尾。 唯一收获是截了几个好图,是免费都不值得玩的作品。

A fantastic 2.5D jump and run game
Played in a black surreal world, somehow the visuals remind me of American McGee's Alice.
You will follow a story that the narrator, which is the player, will tell you while playing.
There are obstacles but no enemies, except for your faulty jumps and falls.
The music, the colors, the narrator, the rain, everything adds to the atmosphere.
It's not about achieving a big boss goal by fighting your way to this point through loads of enemies (no spoilers here), but about enjoying the story and the surroundings.
You will meet robots, strange creatures, talk to them, come to strange places and you will be seeing stuff that could have been drawn by Dali.
The game is far to fast over if you sit in there and are an avid jump and run player, but just to remind you, you will miss a lot if you just rush through.

Fun fact: absinthe doesn't actually cause hallucinations.

Spate is, despite it's erroneous science, immensely beautiful. The surrealistic backdrops and bright colors are truly wonderful. The constant storms, the overlay of winds that manipulate the lighting does add to the chaos of our assigned absinthe addicts mind. It adds to the madness. It's a 2D game in a 3D plane, which gives way to a plethora of amazing art-decisions. There are houses, cliffs, rubble, just floating around, sometimes in front of our screen - this can be incredibly annoying while doing some of the more precise platforming since it obfuscates our path, but it could be intentional to make an otherwise easy game a bit harder(bad way of doing that though). But the 3D and the more modern graphics - if you compare it to other indiegames - is a nice change in the way of storyfocused 2D platformers. Spate always give you something to look at, you will never be bored, visually.

The gameplay is bog standard, but for the most part it's well done, relatively fun and doesn't bring too much frustration to the overall beauteous atmosphere. Parts of the gameplay are not really enjoyable, and doesn't really partake in the physics that the game otherwise upholds. It didn't make sense and it felt contrived. I am mostly referring to the parts where you used a cannon. Especially when you use a cannon to shoot balls into a basket that at the same time moves up and down, it felt out of place and I also fps-dropped in these parts of the game, which made it even worse.These were however short enough to not ruin the experience, but annoying nonetheless. These stops in movement made the game stagnate a bit, it ruined the flow and atmosphere in a way, for me. It felt really gamey, it snapped you out of the game and into a world where you are playing a game, trying to time a frustrating, fps-dropping ball into a bowl which seemingly made nothing happen. It didn't really give you the feedback you needed either to understand that you progressed. Or maybe I was just not paying attention in my boredom. Otherwise the gameplay is okay, but perhaps not the main draw of the game.

The story was interesting. But in a way that reminded me of Contrast, it didn't get it across in the best way possible. The end seemed rushed, lackluster in a way, the death of his daughter didn't really seem to have been absolved. That could just be the ending I chose, the mindless optimist that I am. Which some people may enjoy being there, but it seemed out of character and trivialized the daughters death.
There was also some weird writing, where the robot calls attention to the protagonists alcohol problem and he answer in anger, just after he himself have admitted to it being a problem. It felt like it was forced to give way for a dialogue later on. A dialogue infected by cliché.
The narrator is this deep voiced guy: Jack Bair, sort of sounds like Morgan Freeman and he really makes the narration a joy to listen to. It's a third person telling of what you're doing in the way of Bastion, only it's the protagonist talking from his point of view. And apart from some trite observations, or "ruining" - perhaps confirming - the symbolism you yourself get from the background, the narrator does really add to the game. It's simply great.

So Spate has its moments. It can be hilarious at times, it can be depressing at others. It does illustrate the delirium of an absinthe drinker. It's worthwhile for everything that it is. And for everything that it tries to be. It's intelligent, quirky, surreal, humorous, pretty, colorful. It has spirit.Hehe

If you played through Limbo and thought to yourself, "Boy, I could really do without the quality level design, evocative story, and intelligent puzzles", then Spate is the game for you. It's a 2D platformer that seems to try and emulate better games but only does so at a superficial level, leaving it completely devoid of any substance at all. The level design is bland, the platforming is unsatisfying, and the game offers little to no challenge at all. The gameplay itself is almost non-existent at times; one level in particular is pretty much a Flappy Bird clone, while another has you sliding down slippery slopes and jumping over gaps for about 2 minutes straight. There are instances where you're doing nothing but moving to the right while admiring the scenery and listening to the narrator go on about regret and how alcohol has consumed his life. It's just all too repetitive and boring.

On the positive side, the game is quite the treat visually and musically. I really enjoyed the art style, in particular the impressive backdrops of each level. The orchestral composition was probably the high-point of the experience. It did a great job of creating atmosphere and was one of the main reasons I continued playing for as long as I did.

All in all, Spate is a game that looks better than it plays. It builds up a strong ambiance, but unfortunately everything beneath that feels empty and shallow.

A short, mild/slow platformer with good graphics and a basic story. This game is mostly about visuals and atmosphere. I don't think there is enough or difficult enough platforming to recommend it to someone who is mainly looking for a platformer and I don't think there is enough of a story to recommend it to someone looking for something closer to a visual novel, RPG, or adventure game. Also, there are no puzzles or problem solving in Spate.

If you are looking for an atmospheric game with good visuals and a very basic story, then I would reccomend it.

Spate is a fantastic experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

The game takes a very original approach to gameplay story telling and it pays off wonderfully. A deep and insightful story told through a man's journey in an unfamiliar environment.
You'll laugh, you'll feel alone in the world, you'll cry and you'll do all that as you navigate the most amazing landscapes. The graphics, sound and narration combine to make a surreal and irresistable setting. I found myself unable to stop playing it right through to the end as I wanted to see what was coming next. I won't spoil the game by giving any part of the story away as you really need to play through it to appreciate its originality.

I highly recommend this game.

I greatly enjoy artsy, story-driven "walking simulators", and this seemed right up my alley. It definitely got the artsy walking simulator part down, but the story is really... boring. It's essentially "gosh, absinthe/alcoholism sure did ruin my life, but now it's the only thing keeping me going. Also I'm sad that I lost my wife and child." repeated about 30 times with different wordings. The ending bashes you in the face with symbolism that would make an English teacher proud. "Climbing this tower represents his struggle with alcoholism. The boss at the end sustains his life by feeding off the souls of those around him, just like the main character destroys those around him with his alcoholism."

The platforming bits are alright, but nothing particularly special. And though it might seem petty, I really didn't like the narrator's 1920's New Yorker accent - just didn't seem to fit the character at all. I like these kinds of games for their interesting stories, and this one's just too shallow and unengaging.
