Newsletter #11 — January 2019



Hello everyone!
We wish you all a happy new year!
This month, we will talk about San Francisco and New York with two events coming up for Nova-box.

Animation First Festival in New-York this weekend
If you happen to be in New York this weekend, you'll have the chance to try out Seers Isle at the Animation First Festival, organized by the French Institute / Alliance Française (FIAF), as our game made it into the official selection along with other video games from Bordeaux, France.

It takes place on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th, and you can get all the information you may need directly on their website, over here.



Seers Isle got a nomination for the IGF Awards!
We're very proud to announce that Seers Isle has been nominated for the Independent Game Festival Award, for the category "Excellence in Narrative. It was chosen as one of the six finalists in a panel of over 500 entries. We're very proud and grateful for this distinction.

The consequence of that is that Nico and I (Geoffroy) will be in San Francisco from March 18th to March 22th to attend the awards ceremony that takes place during the Game Developer Conference. We will also have a kiosk on the expo floor, so don't hesitate to come meet us and try our games if you're going to this event.

Once again, you'll find all the information you need on the Game Developer Conference website.

We also answered some questions from Joel Couture for GamaSutra as a part of the "Road to the IGF 2019" series on GamaSutra:

What have we been up to?
Well, January is always a month with a lot of administrative stuff to work through, and this year was no different. So it's been "paperwork, paperwork, and more paperwork" for me (Geoffroy). I'm putting the final touches to the funding files for our next game that are due by the end of the month, and I've also turned into a small travel agency to get ready to come over to the USA for the Game Developer Conference in March.

In spite of all that, Nico, Raph and I found the time to build a first prototype of the next game, and it's coming along quite nicely. Julien and Camille (our musicians) will begin recording some music next month, and we're all eager to see what they will come up with impatiently, music being one of the main themes of this next project.

Speaking of this, here's an image of Alice with the headphones on for your viewing pleasure:

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!

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).
