Newsletter #10 — December 2018



Hello everyone!
Here comes the last newsletter of 2018. This month, we had a party, we did an interview, and the holiday season sales are in full swing.

We adopted a piano
So, last week, Studio Black Flag, Manufacture 43 and Nova-box held a party in our shared office of the 21 rue des Retaillons, with a double purpose. One was to hold the monthly after work meetup of the "Bordeaux Games" society that we all are part of, and another was to properly welcome an old German-made upright piano to our workplace.

We did this on an initiative from our friend Charly Martin (who you may remember from the music credits of Along the Edge and Echoes), who created a society called "Autour du Piano" ("Around the Piano"). One of its missions is to salvage forgotten pianos from mouldy basements and give them a second life in public or semi-public places.

So, we jammed and we chatted into the wee hours of the night. We would like to warmly thank everyone who came, we had such a great time in your company. Here below, some snapshots from the evening.



We talked in front of a camera
Right before the Animasia convention in October, Quentin, AKA "Soy Indies" had a chat with Nico and I (Geoffroy) about Seers Isle's release and our thoughts about narrative games in general.

You can watch it on Youtube, however, I'm afraid the whole interview is in French (and I apologize to our international friends for that). You can also follow Soy Indies on Twitter (@soyindies) and on Twitch (http://twitch.tv/soyindies).

What have we been up to?
Well, I must admit that December has been quite slow. 2018 was a rich and frantic year, and the team is looking forward to some well deserved rest (I'm currently battling a nasty cold as I'm writing these lines). We're still working on our next top secret (for now) project, and it's coming along nicely, so stay tuned for a great year in 2019!

See you next month!

Newsletter #9 — November 2018



Hello everyone!

This month, we welcomed a new housemate (again). Also, we wanted to tell you about Black Friday sales and share some tidbits about our next game.

 
Manufacture 43 moved in with us
So, a couple of weeks ago, we welcomed yet another indie game dev to our urban "commune" of the "21st Cobblestone Street" (well, to be honest, it's "21, rue des Retaillons", but it sounds way more like a "secret hideout" translated in English, don't you think?).

Daniel from Manufacture 43 has been working on his "Ikaruga meets rock-paper-scissors" shoot'em up Pawarumi for a couple of years, and he's in the midst of porting the game to console systems.

As you may already know, I'm personally not very good at this kind of demanding gameplay, but let me tell you that I've heard nothing but good words and praise for his title. It is a visually stunning piece of work set in a very original "Neo-Aztec" future. So, if you're into shooting at everything that moves from the pilot seat of your spaceship, you might want to check this one out.

Here's a link to Pawarumi's website if you want to learn more: http://pawarumi.com.
And, of course, you can get the game on Steam:

Black Friday Steam Sale
So, the time of the year when people lose all sense of sanity and restraint over crazy deals on the internet is upon us.

To uphold the tradition, our games will be on sale at their usual discount on Steam (and other digital retailers) during the Autumn Sales, running until next Tuesday (November 27th):
— Buy Seers Isle on Steam with 10% off,
— Buy Along the Edge on Steam with 30% off.

What have we been up to?
We're making good progress on our next project. I (Geoffroy) have written the story outline while Nico has been painting some concept art to pin down the visual style of the game. Meanwhile, Raphaël has been going quite deep under the hood, and if all goes according to plan, we might have a brand new game engine soon, opening up a whole new universe of possibilities, the sky being the limit and all (more on that later).

We're not ready to go into too much detail about the game, but we can safely say that we'll be visiting some familiar grounds, as you can witness for yourself in the concept art here below:

Reviews

“Along the Edge is one of those rare stories that blur the lines so deeply you don’t quite know you’ve made a mistake until it’s too late”
8/10 – Emily Sowden, Gamespew

“In a sea of visual novels adhering all too closely to dull tropes and uninteresting conventions, Along the Edge is part of a new breed of interactive fiction rethinking what can be done with the genre”
Nate Kiernan, Kritiqal

“Along the Edge Is An Exquisite-Looking Visual Novel”
Brittany Vincent, Rock Paper Shotgun

About This Game

Along the Edge is a visual novel set in the European countryside, where your choices impact the main character's personality and appearance.

Story


Daphné is at a dead-end. She's unsatisfied by her personal and professional life. So, when she inherits an old family house in a remote part of the country, she jumps at the opportunity to start anew.

Does she decide to embrace her legacy or does she hang on to her old way of life?

Features


  • An adult and slightly occult universe painted with the vibrant colors of the European countryside.

  • Each of your choices impact the main character personality, mood and appearance.

  • A huge amount of content, enough to fill a two years compendium of a comic-book series:
    — Over 450 hand-made full-screen illustrations and 20 characters with over 400 different variants and attitudes (including 38 possible appearance evolutions of the main character, Daphné),
    — 80.000 words in English and in French (which would translate into a 400 pages novel).

  • 60 different endings, 28 achievements to unlock. Throughout the story, your choices will impact:
    — how the plot ends (6 possibilities),
    — the destiny of the main character (4 possibilities),
    — the romantic relationships of the main character (3 possibilities),
    — several smaller plot points (such as the life or death of some supporting characters).
