Patch 1.8 for Wait - Extended is online

Greetings, we just released a new patch for Wait.

Change notes v1.8:

- Fixed a major exploit in the fifth night of the 2nd invocation. Luckily no one noticed it yet (or maybe someone has, but didn't tell us. Shame on you!)

- Fixed a few minor bugs in general.

- Added more interaction variety in Emilys Sidestory. We felt like too many objects had the same text throughout her story. Now there's a greater variety of texts during her first night and second day.

Our next game "The Quest Giver" is live on Kickstarter

Greetings,
our next game "The Quest Giver", which is a management simulation set in a fantasy world, has gone live on Kickstarter. If you enjoyed Wait and are maybe also a fan of different genres, feel free to check it out, as we put as much love and detail into it, as we did in Wait.

About This Game

"Wait" is a mystery horror game, inspired by the works of H.P Lovecraft and the Silent Hill series.
The gameplay is put together by elements of exploration and riddle solving.
We want to offer a different kind of horror. A horror without jump scares or fighting monsters, but with the fear of the unknown and unimaginable.

What is "Wait"?


The game is all about atmosphere and we wanted to support that by giving the player the opportunity to interact with almost every object at different times during the game.
It's about exploration and discovering what is happening around you.
Everything in "Wait" is experienced by a young man, the player knows nothing about. And it's intended to be that way.
You are literally thrown into another mans life and you can find out more about who that man is, by exploring.
His behaviour, his characteristics are slowly revealed through interacting with objects or continuing with the story.

"Wait" may be inspired by the Cthulhu mythos created by Howard Phillips Lovecraft, but doesn't actually take place in it.
There are some references here and there, but what was most important to us was the feeling and the atmosphere Lovecraft created in his stories - the fear of the unimaginable.

About the project


We originally created "Wait" for the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest. It was a contest in which you had 4 weeks to create a game, using any official engine. Since the contest was hosted by the RPG Maker Team we decided to go with their engine.
Although the engine was made for roleplaying games, we saw potential for an adventurous horror game.
During development we grew fond of our little project and once the contest was over we didn't want to let go.
There was still so much we wanted to implement, but due to the time limit of 4 weeks we could only do about half of it.
That's when we decided to do an extended version to "really" finish the game, add more details, enhance some visuals, erase plot holes and add some more story content.
But that's all just supplementary. "Wait - Extended" has the following features:

Features:


  • Atmospheric exploration gameplay
  • Alternative endings
  • Dynamic replayability (Successive playthroughs will not be same)
  • Achievement system
  • Hidden storylines

We hope you will have as much fun with "Wait", as we have working on it. Every feedback is much appreciated.
