Summit of the Wolf Launches Spring 2020

Summit of the Wolf is a poignant point-and-click adventure by Unimatrix Productions, the creators of the indie "whodunnit" Stonewall Penitentiary. It features both fantasy and real-world segments and is presented in the visual style of graphic novels.

After falling asleep in her warm bed one night, twelve-year-old Ophelia wakes up in an ethereal garden with no memory of how she got there. After speaking with a mysterious goddess named Adena, Ophelia sets out on a personal journey to find the fabled Summit of the Wolf, whereupon she must uncover the tragic real-world events that led to her arrival in this fantasy realm. Will Ophelia complete her quest, or will she succumb to the many dangers she must face along the way?

“This is a must play if you are a fan of the genre”
8.3/10 – Mediaman Reviews

“At its heart, Shady Brook is a story that is experienced as an interactive adventure. It is infinitely more engaging than pure reading and includes all the elements of a good novel: an interesting plot, characters you can empathize with, and a series of twists and turns that lead to an unexpected ending.”
B+ – Just Adventure

“The story is extremely well written with some completely unexpected twists and turns. The music suits the virtual environment very well and the limited graphics are very pretty as well as perfectly balanced without taking the attention away from the storyline and text based engine of Shady Brook.”
Lloyd of Gamebooks

À propos de ce jeu

Relive the days of classic gaming with Shady Brook, a dark mystery text adventure inspired by the television series Twin Peaks in which players take on the role of author Jake Torrent in his search of a small town's twisted secrets.

Gameplay


Shady Brook combines the best elements of interactive fiction, visual novels, and gamebooks with a graphic user interface that emulates the look of early 1990s text adventures. It features beautiful artwork and cinematic music. In place of a text parser is a context-specific multiple choice menu. A compass allows you to travel from room to room, and separate inventory, map, journal, and character screens are available at the push of a button.

Shady Brook plays like an interactive novel. You make a series of choices that determine what happens next in the story. But unlike traditional gamebooks and choose-your-own adventures, Shady Brook also features more advanced adventure game mechanics, including locations to explore, items to collect and use, characters to meet and interact with, and puzzles to solve.

Story


Author Jake Torrent, alongside his blind father Wayne, moves to the small, peaceful country town of Shady Brook. At first, everything seems idyllic. His neighbor, Tim, is always willing to lend a hand, and the Ekan family invites him to dinner.

But soon, Jake learns that his home's previous occupant committed suicide, and mysterious things begin to occur. When another resident also commits suicide, Jake starts to suspect foul play. Could this town take part in a conspiracy to cover up a murder?

As Jake investigates, he gets more than he bargained for: a town secret so terrifying that there is no turning back...
