Our new game Sunset is now available for all. Right here on Steam:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/287600

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.

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.

Bundle bundle bundlenews! Indie Royale have launched their latest, hoping to soak up the cash for another collection of out-turned pocketed developers. This time it’s the Evolved Bundle, because, um, they’ve called it that. And it’s a good-un. In there you’ve got the utterly splendid puzzler Unmechanical from Talawa Games (check out our review), Tale Of Tales’ super-creepy The Path, Fatshark’s latest, Krater, Turtle Cream’s Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory, and physics puzzler OIO from Uncanny Games. Which I’d say is the best pack they’ve had in a while.

Now that the holiday season has run its course, the Indie Royale bundles are a little less festive and a little more abstract. Such is the case with the "Evolved" bundle, which seems to be a thin excuse to use adorable turtle hatchlings as its banner. But it still packages together five indie games and some soundtracks, so no complaints.

The bundle includes Unmechanical, The Path, Krater, Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory, and OIO, along with soundtracks for The Path, Krater, and Sugar Cube. The current minimum is hovering around the $5 range, but paying more than $8 will also net you the album Slipstream by Cold Storage.

If you loved The Path...
Bientôt l’été is available for Mac and PC.

You can get it here:
http://conte-des-contes.com/bientotlete

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.

Please spread the word if you like Bientôt l'été.


Warm wishes,

Michael & Auriea.
