Unavowed
« on: 21 Mar 2016, 18:28 »
Wadjet Eye Games is extraordinarily proud to announce our next upcoming project: Unavowed!

Story
For six months, you were possessed by a demon. For six months, you unwillingly tore a trail of bloodshed through New York City. Now, finally, you are rescued by the Unavowed - an ancient society dedicated to stopping evil.

You are free, but your world is in tatters. You have no home, no friends, and you are wanted by the police. You can not return to your old life, but perhaps you can start a new one. Join the Unavowed, and learn to fight against the oncoming darkness.

Coming in 2017!

Written & Programmed by: Dave Gilbert (story co-designed with Jennifer Hepler)
Backgrounds and sprites: Ben Chandler
Music: Thomas Regin
Portraits (not pictured yet): Ivan Ulyanov

Features:
   -Choose a male or female protagonist
   -Choose one of three playable origin stories
   -branching storyline
   -A total of five companion characters to choose from. Each with their own talents and abilities.
   -Double the resolution of a typical Wadjet Eye Game!
   -All the usual guff - voice acting, commentary, original music, etc

This is the first original game I have written in two years, and my first ORIGINAL IP since Blackwell Legacy in 2006. It's super exciting to be working on this. More news as it comes.

Screenshots:

Everything a modern day mage could want.


This probably isn't good.

Looks just gorgeous! Love the color balance in the first pic especially (and Ben with a sword!). And it's going to be interesting having a choice of characters. Curious to see how and to what extent that'll affect the story/gameplay.

Please update your first post to make sure it follows the rules or I have to lock...

Just kidding.

Looks great!  Good to see you "behind the wheel" again.

Best of luck with the production!

Several others have already said it, but it looks beautiful and the higher resolution is really neat. I'm also curious if the male/female protagonist option will be two different characters or a gender-swapped version of one character. :)

Looks fantastic!  Really like the character design of that twisty blue-purple dude.  Kind of looks like a piece of wire-art came to life!

Looking gorgeous!
I love the step up in resolution. Hope it will pay back in the end as well for Wadjet Eye - but if it can work for Daedalic - then why not :)

Going hi-res I see!

Well, now, since you're a professional company and all, and have more time for R&D (haha), then how about you develop a process to add a very light antialisaing on the outline of character sprites? (intrested suggestion) ;)

That's gorgeous art.

The plot sounds like the kind of urban fantasy my students love to read - is this a way to reach out to the young adult bracket?

Mostly a way to reach my personal love of the "Dresden Files." :)

Very intriguing. I'll be keeping an eye on progress as it develops.

If you play one character, do you intend for the player to encounter the other as an NPC during the game?
