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!).

Come back, remember, take a walk on The Path. This time something new guides your journey... we've added Steam Trading Cards, emotions, backgrounds and badges for you. Hope they creep you out and add a vivid dimension to your conversations here on Steam! ;)
Also, an update has been released for the Mac version. Please let us know in the Forums if it's working for you now.
It's been 3 years since our previous release. So we're pretty excited about this one. Especially because it takes yet another step further away from conventional game ideas and towards embracing the medium of videogames as a mature and capable platform for artistic expression. We feel we have made a lot of progress with this one.
Bientôt l'été was inspired by French novelist and filmmaker Marguerite Duras. It's about love and loss, deception and desire, coyness and cruelty. You play a man or a woman, you walk along the beach, pensive. And then you go inside, to meet another player for a strange game of chess.
The music was composed by Walter Hus and the animations were made by Laura Raines Smith, who has animated all of our characters so far. The text is spoken in French and subtitled in many languages which you can choose from. Currently: English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Polish and Russian. And we hope to add more.
