First vignette released!

August 12

Greetings, denizens of the realms of Steam and outlying lands!

You'll have noticed that we've had a few updates to the game since we launched - bug fixes (thanks to everyone who submitted bug reports), and we introduced Steam Trading Cards shortly after launch - I hope you've been enjoying the pretty artwork and fun emoticons from completing the badges!

With this update, we're excited to announce the release of the first game vignette - a small snippet of extra content that will download to your game for the fantastic sum of Free, which you can then access from the game's main menu under Vignettes. In this first installment, you'll get to play Ella as she has a conversation with Gartley.

Enjoy, and as always, let us know if you encounter any bugs and we'll get the bug spray out. :)

We just made the demo available on Steam. It lets you play through the first few scenes of the story, and should give a good overview of the game's style, flow and pacing.

You also get to experience the beauty that is the soundtrack.

Get it here.

Enjoy!

Decently well-made for just one act, thus far. The music is great, gives it that authentic noir feeling. Not much in the way of puzzles, and I can see more happening in the later acts, but it can take a second to figure out exactly what you need to do next. A nice touch, since nothing should be overly easy.

The dialogue and story can be a bit hard to follow at first, due to the nature of the protagonist, but as you start to identify with them, it picks up fairly well. No in-game volume slider, but that can usually be adjusted computer-side.

All-in-all, looking forward to seeing more of this game, and perhaps even more of the developer. I wouldn't mind seing a full series based on this game's lore, or perhaps multiple different series. :)

7,5/10

+ good production values considering it's a little indie game with probably low budget
+ really love the setting, sci-fi with some noir vibe in it
+ interesting story, although not complete in this episode, makes me waiting for the next one
+ gameplay wise it's exactly what the developers wrote in the game's description on store, a hypertext adventure, think of a text adventure with moving pictures where you can interact with point and click mechanics, talk to npcs, change direction etc
+ although few, logical puzzles

- no voice acting (really unacceptable)
- very short, could use more puzzles


in conclusion this is a unique little game that makes me want more since i love the genre and the setting, but can only recommend to point and click adventure games fans

I enjoyed this style and I look forward to the other episodes in the series.

This was just the distraction that I needed for an evening to take my mind off of the oppressive system we all live in.

This game is slick, unique and very engrossing. I don't think I've ever seen an adventure game that features a comic book style feel to it. The writing is superb and had me wondering who I was, what I was doing here... and what was going on.

One of my all time favourite games of this genre was 'Beneath A Steel Sky' back in the old glory Amiga days. This game has given me that same vibe and wonderment. Every thing about this game oozes style. The music is atmospheric and fits the game superb. The game is reasonably priced when you consider this is just the 1st part of 3 episodes.

If you're looking for something fresh, compelling and different give this a try. It will hook you and draw you into its world.

As a 1st game for this development team, you instinctly know they have a lot of talent. This is a team to watch!
Well done guys, you have my total respect and I'm excited for future episodes and games.

Took me about an hour and a half to complete. It was really straightforward. I never got stuck or spent long trying to figure out what to do at most points. I liked it, it's good.

It basically plays like a like point and click adventure game. I worked out the solutions to most situations pretty quickly. They are usually fairly obvious and there weren’t really many red herrings or that sort of thing.

I liked the aesthetics, the characters, the music. There is virtually no sound, just rain pattering down sometimes. There is no voice acting, all dialogue is written. But I really liked the it. I thought the world populated with androids was cool. The plot was interesting even though the premise was cliche, waking up with no memories. There was an interesting twist at the end.

Okay, what's available now is a pretty short. But once all the episodes and vignettes are available I think you could probably get a decent amount of game-time for your money. It's not really expensive anyway, I felt like it was already worth it. I am looking forward to episode 2 and 3.
