ASYLUM: Progress update!



Things are looking up with the development of our colossal horror adventure! We’re happy to report ASYLUM is nearly feature complete and we did a little video to show you:

https://youtu.be/9m9zIbjGh9Q

"Feature complete" is a crucial milestone meaning all the systems intervening in the game (exploration, inventory, dialogues, menu, etc.) are ready. A quick lowdown of the stuff we did and improved since our latest gameplay video include:
  • Revised cursors and hotspots. The hands are smaller and detecting spots is now ultra smooth and sexy. No more annoying red outline (we listened to you).
  • Incredibly awesome menu system and very die... diaie... diegait... DIEGETIC. Wait till you see how our achievements work — completing them will be super fun for Steam users!
  • We’re finally able to have a proper conversation with the denizens of the asylum. And it looks good! And feels good! Our context-based dialogue system is unlike anything you have experienced in adventure games.
  • 3D inventory and journal, including 3D pencil. So immersive, so fancy. Much 3D.
  • Too many visual effects and tweaks to mention here.
  • Surely many other things we’re forgetting. And obviously a huge deal of playable content!
Talk to the hand... err, about the hand
We had many users complaining about the hand icons and saying they ruin the immersion. On the other hand (see what we did there?), just as well many users prefer their "classic" feel. Please, let us know your thoughts based on what you're seeing on this video, either in the comments or our discussion forums, as we're studying alternatives: https://steamcommunity.com/app/230210/discussions

In other news, we have one of those fancy creator pages now in which we review and recommend adventures with a focus on horror: https://store.steampowered.com/developer/Senscape

Make a wish!
Finally, remember to add ASYLUM to your Steam wishlist in case you haven't, and why not follow the game as well for more news?

About This Game

How long has it been? A man sits in a distant getaway cabin waiting for his wife Serena. Where is she? Things in the cabin evoke memories, and the husband comes to a disturbing realization...

This short point-and-click adventure is the result of a massive collaborative effort between dozens of fans and designers of adventure games. Rallying to support the venerable genre and its passionate community, these developers have brought together a grim and highly detailed horror story in what is the largest, possibly even the first, game project of its kind. Talents include crew from renowned indie companies Senscape, CBE Software, Infamous Quests, Digital Media Workshop, Guys from Andromeda, and many more.

Features

  • A (twisted) love letter to the adventure game community
  • Over 40 contributors provided their wit and talents
  • Extremely depressive mood, and a bit of fear here and there
  • A haunting story that will challenge your intellect (and temerity)
  • Amazing voice acting by legendary adventure game designer Josh Mandel
  • More awesome acting by popular video producer Pushing Up Roses
  • Yet another overwhelmingly astonishing surprise cameo by an ex-designer from Sierra!
  • Did we mention the gut-wrenching atmosphere?
