A Welcome for Humble Monthly Bundle recipients

To all the new players who got The Norwood Suite from this month's Humble Monthly Bundle and are like... What is This?

Thank you for taking The Norwood Suite out for a spin. I'm assuming you probably weren't expecting or even asking for this game in your bundle. Perhaps you've decided to play it on a whim. Perhaps you're thinking it's going to play like *insert adventure game of choice here*. Perhaps not...

For maximum enjoyment of this game, I'd recommend turning the lights down, grabbing your favorite beverage, and letting the whole experience wash over you. This game can be played in one evening (90-120 minutes).

It's not a puzzle game, but it wants you to explore it, open it up at your own pace. It emphasizes flowing through the hotel and uncovering its secrets. It gives you space to ruminate on its themes and ideas. It's meant to be interpreted freely. I encourage you to just roll with it.

Also, the Soundtrack can be listened to on its own here:

FYI, this game is a sequel of sorts to my last game, Off-Peak, which can be played for free (~20 minutes playtime) here:

What's going on here?

The Norwood Suite is featured in the February Humble Monthly bundle.

Not only is the game itself on sale on Steam, but if you get it in the bundle, you get access to a ton of other great games. Really strong stuff.

Since there's going to be a continued influx of new players from the Bundle this month, some of them have called an issue to my attention that I'll probably patch in soon - a volume slider. [Update - I patched it in: ]

Beyond that, I'm moving ahead with new projects and ideas. Some of which I've already revealed.

stay tuned and thanks for your support

A Glance at What's Next

A Glance at What's Next


I wanted to pull back the curtain on some very preliminary screens of a next game. My goal for this year is to find support for this vision and build on what I was able to achieve with The Norwood Suite.

In this new game, players are turned loose on a city block, reminiscent the neighborhood I've called home over the past few years. You'll converse with people using the dialog system I had going on in The Norwood Suite. Exploration, discovery and interweaving narratives will persist. At least one new layer of gameplay will be implemented.

That's all I'll say for now. In the meantime, enjoy these preliminary screens.

About This Game

From Cosmo D, the creator of the freeware hit Off-Peak, comes a game that is both its spiritual and direct sequel.

In 1983, Peter Norwood, one of the world's most celebrated pianists and composers, mysteriously vanished. His private mansion was turned into the Hotel Norwood, which, over the years, accumulated its own share of notoriety. But the mystery of what really went on during Norwood's time never truly got uncovered... until now.

The Norwood Suite is a first-person adventure game that takes players to the secluded Hotel Norwood on a simple friendly errand that quickly unfolds into something much more involved. Filled with bizarre characters and curiosities, this mysterious resort is a dense, open-ended world teeming with hidden passages and secrets to discover.

Peer into the lives of the hotel’s guests and staff, explore and interact with surprises behind every door, and piece together a jigsaw narrative that rewards your curiosity. The Norwood Suite features surreal art design, as well as an original atmospheric musical score, composed by Cosmo D, that integrates itself directly into the game world.
