Newsletter #8 — October 2018



Hello everyone!
This month, we received an award, welcomed new housemates, and made Seers Isle available in a bookstore.

Studio Black Flag moved in with us

That's the cycle of life. The bad news is that our friends from Shinypix moved out of the 21 rue des Retaillons (Nova-box's batcave, where the magic happens) to rise up to new challenges and opportunities. We wish Fabrice, Ludo, Julien and Olivier all the best, happiness and success in their future endeavors. We will miss having them with us.

The good news is, our friends Adrien and Maxime from Studio Black Flag quickly filled in the vacant desks, moving in with us at the start of the month.

You may have heard about them and their incredible upcoming game, Orphan Age, in past issues of this column. If you haven't, I strongly suggest you take a look at it. In fact, we love their game so much we wrote a small interactive novella named Orphan Age: Diaries to go along with it. I can safely say that it's not the last you're hearing about them. Stay tuned.

Here's a link to their website if you want to learn more: http://studioblackflag.com

Indie Game Factory and the Animasia convention

Last weekend, the team attended the "Indie Game Factory", a professional meetup of the French game industry, followed by the Animasia convention where we showed our games to visitors.

Seers Isle's music composers, Camille and Julien, gave a speech about music and video games while I (Geoffroy) participated in a panel about narrative design and writing for video games, sharing the stage with Sybil Collas and FibreTigre.

We're also very proud to announce that we received the "Best Game of 2018" award during the convention. Our friends from Howly Games got the "Best Art Direction" award for their upcoming platformer Unspoken Chronicles: Nora (they're doing a kickstarter campaign right now, go check it out) and Tako Studio received the "heart crush of the jury" award for their puzzle game Minimal Move.

Here's a couple of snapshots from the weekend.

Seers Isle Steam keys are available at "Krazy Kat", a comic book store in Bordeaux

We're thrilled to announce that you can buy Seers Isle Steam keys in a real brick and mortar shop. Our friends from Krazy Kat, a comic book store located 10 rue de la Merci in Bordeaux have a limited run of keys nestled in a nice and exclusive leaflet.

If you're in the Bordeaux area, we strongly suggest you go pay them a visit. Matthieu and his team give great advice, are very friendly, and they even have a bar where you can drink a beer or a coffee in the shop.



Here's some directions to get there:

And if you're not in Bordeaux, you can still get the game here, on Steam :

What have we been up to?
Well, this month has been quite hectic with post-launch frenzy following the release of Seers Isle. However, we found some time to start the pre-production of our next project. Everything is still under the seal of secrecy, of course, but since we love you best, here's a concept art picture, exclusive to you, newsletter subscribers.

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).
