Last hours for Cathedral-in-the-Clouds!

The Kickstarter for our new project has not achieved its goal yet. Please help if and how you can!

Cathedral-in-the-Clouds is not a game. It's a series of virtual dioramas intended for contemplation to be distributed for free on many different platforms. To gather the dioramas, we are building a cathedral in VR.

It's a challenging project because it is explicitly inspired by medieval Christian art (the Flemish Primitives worked in our town 500 years ago) and we're actually atheists. Exploring this is very exciting to us but probably a bit difficult to stomach for the masses. Luckily we only need a small group of believers. Will you be one of them? Be quick!

Thanks you.

Michaël Samyn.

There is one rule in the game. And it needs to be broken.
There is one goal. And when you attain it, you die.

Six sisters live in an apartment in the city. One by one their mother sends them on an errand to their grandmother, who is sick and bedridden. The teenagers are instructed to go to grandmother's house deep in the forest and, by all means, to stay on the path! Wolves are hiding in the woods, just waiting for little girls to stray.
But young women are not exactly known for their obedience, are they? Will they be able to resist the temptations of the forest? Will they stay clear of danger? Can they prevent the ancient tale from being retold?
The Path is a game about growing, about changing, about making choices, about accepting the consequences of these choices. A game about playing, and failing, about embracing life, perhaps by accepting death.

Key Features:
The Path is a short horror game inspired by older versions of Little Red Riding hood, set in modern day. The Path offers an atmospheric experience of exploration, discovery and introspection through a unique form of gameplay, designed to immerse you deeply into its dark themes. Every interaction in the game expresses an aspect of the narrative. The six protagonists each have their own age and personality and allow the player to live through the tale in different ways. Most of the story, however, relies on your active imagination.
The Path is designed with accessibility in mind. There are no ticking clocks or monsters to defeat. No hard puzzles will ever halt your progress. Most activities in the game are entirely optional and voluntary. The player has all the freedom in the world to explore and experience.

While The Path does not contain any graphic violence or sexuality, it does allude to these themes. The overall melancholy mood of the game and the potentially unsettling course of events, make The Path unsuitable for children. Despite of its origins in fairy tales, The Path is decidedly a game for the mature mind.
The game features a complete realtime 3D environment that can be explored through third person navigation. The characters in this virtual world, including the player's avatars, are governed by a form of artificial intelligence that gives them some autonomy. As a result, nobody knows exactly what you will encounter on your journeys.
Next to the multi-layered stylized graphics, The Path features a continuous soundtrack composed by goth rock diva Jarboe (ex-Swans). In fact, there are hardly any sound effects in the game. Instead the music is continuously changing according to what is happening in the game. Like the behaviours of the characters, the music too is never exactly the same twice.
For a satisfying experience, it takes about 6 hours to complete the game.

*Tiny potential HINTS and SPOILERS*
This is not a 'game' in a sense of gameplay. This is a trippy look into these girl's minds as they walk into death. To really pay attention to everything around you as you avoid the fate you are destined to walk down eventually. Grandmother's house. How long will you prolong? Will you get every piece of the puzzle to solve their lives, or maybe even their deaths?

You REALLY need to stay open minded with this game, or you may end up hating it. This game, you either hate or love.

Beautiful attention to detail
Lovely soundtrack, though trippy sometimes
Well-made characters, if you ask me. They have their own quirks and stories.
Left me thinking and comtemplating a lot of it, so it's basically engraved in my life now.
The girl in white... I loved playing with her. That is, until I found out...
Creepy and stays somewhat true to the original tale of Little Red. Other than the cloth bridge and all that.
You're sort of by yourself in this forest, almost. It adds to atmostphere but can also be a hinderance at times. The isolation kind of scared me.
The noises. Oh god, the noises. They really immersed me, since I was wearing headphones. I actually got really into the game, and it kind of kept me on edge. Everytime I heard a rusty swingset, I thought the girl in white was playing in a park somewhere, and set off to find it.

THERE NEEDS TO BE AN EPILEPSY WARNING FOR THIS GAME (Nearly had a seizure at the end. Pictures flashed on screen to give you ideas of what happened, but I couldn't see most of it due to my epilepsy...)
Easy to do a loop around the forest, AKA, get hopelessly lost.
REALLY hard to find all the items, or get the wolf on first try.
If you REALLY want to get back on the path, you can't exactly do that by yourself...
Not everything is flat out explained, you actually have to think. Shocker, I know.

I give this game a 7/10. It's not the game for everyone, but it's certainly the game for me, since I am a lover of art and deep stories.

The Path is an interesting, thought-provoking game that takes a lot of pleasure in making us wonder what a 'game' is and to which extent it can blend with other genres. Playing The Path is like reading a book: there is no voice-acting, you have to read the thoughts of the six main characters to understand who they are and the nature of their desires and fears. Sometimes, it is like playing a record: the eerie, yet beautiful soundtrack plays a decisive role in setting the atmosphere of the game. The Path is not a traditional horror game: it plays with the player's sensitivity. I personally had to close the game once because I was just afraid. Afraid of the paradox that the Path presents us: if we take the safe path and go to grandmother's house unharmed, nothing happens (even though the grandmother is quite terrifying in my opinion, but this is not relevant here). To 'beat' the game, we have to encounter the wolf. Its form is always different, sometimes surprising. It completes and ends the girl's path, and helps us understand her better. I am currently replaying the game to better understand what happens and sharpen my interpretations.

The music, the graphics, plus the work on the shading, blended with the subtle characterization of Robin, Rose, Ginger, Ruby, Carmen and Scarlet, bring into being a wonderful game. One that moves deeply and definitely asks for your point of view to become whole.

This game can be frusterating (or even down right boring) if you aren't activley thinking critically & analyzing it while playing; but when you are, It's downright brilliant.
If you are looking for just a fun game to play and just provide you with entertainment, then don't buy this game. On the other hand, if you want something really interesting that flips conventional games on their heads, then you will most likely love this game.

This is the sort of game I think tried to be too much artsy and not enough substance. It's interesting, certainly, but it's almost unfair to call it a "Game" and more of a sort of window into allegories of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Even then, it's mostly told through visuals (which are beautiful, mind you) that leave you putting small pieces together of what's happening rather than telling you a full story.

It's novel, but... I can't recommend it. Very style-over-substance with nothing to hold it down and bring it to something engaging.
