The Endless Forest was our first release. A multiplayer online game where everyone plays a magical deer in an idyllic forest. With its peaceful atmosphere, lack of chat or game goals, freedom to play and interact, The Endless Forest set the tone for all our productions to follow (the forest in The Path is based on that in The Endless Forest, by the way).
We are celebrating its tenth anniversary with an attempt to remake the technology that drives The Endless Forest. Because we want to be able to continue expanding the game and give it as lively a second decade as its first.
Being a completely free game, development of The Endless Forest relies entirely on non-commercial funding. To be able to remake the game, we are currently collecting contributions via IndieGogo.
If you care about free games where people can experience a beautiful harmonious magical and often hilariously funny community, please consider helping out! https://igg.me/at/theendlessforest
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!
Like The Path it is a very narrative game. But this time the story is inspired by real world politics and romance, even though the setting is a fictional Latin American country in 1972. You play Angela Burnes, a US citizen who ends up working as a housekeeper in the penthouse of the wealthy Gabriel Ortega in the capital of San Bavón. As you go about your business washing dishes and ironing shirts, a revolution breaks out in the city below. Slowly but surely you get entangled in a web of revolutionary intrigue and, possibly, romance as the Anchurian people rise up against the notorious generalísimo Ricardo Miraflores.
As of now, you can pre-order our new game Sunset from the game's web page: http://tale-of-tales.com/Sunset. Pre-ordering gives you a Steam key on launch day, at a discount, and also a non-DRM version of the game for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Plus you are helping the creative team get through the last stretch of development. Thanks!
We've been working hard to get this update out to you! This version fixes compatibility issues with OSX 10.9 Marvericks. But also issues with graphics bugs and sound issues. So if you are playing on Mac and still have trouble please let us know.
It's our 10 year anniversary today and we're celebrating with a bundle of experiments and prototypes. You can pay what you wish for it (with a minimum of $5 USD) until Christmas. Among many other exclusive items, the bundle contains two early prototypes of The Path (in one of which you can play as Charming Wolf and see how he runs on all fours!).
