Whispers of a Machine
« on: 16 May 2016, 08:49 »


AI was embedded everywhere. In our cars, in our homes. In the clothes we wore. For some of us, even inside our own bodies.

Dreading the Singularity, mankind abruptly put an end to AI. The result was a worldwide technological collapse.



Generations later, Vera, a federal homicide detective is sent to rural outpost Nordsund to investigate a string of murders.

Vera soon finds herself pulled into an invisible war about technology and religion. While some want to awaken the Singularity, seen as a last deity in a godless world, others are vehement technophobes.












Whispers of a Machine will feature handpainted 640x360 graphics, an exciting story with existential twists, and multiple endings.


The team
Petter Ljungqvist (The Samaritan Paradox), Writing, Art
Joel Staaf Hästö (Kathy Rain), Writing, Programming
Jacob Lincke, Music and Sound Effects
Pontus Lund, aka StillInThe90s (Camp 1), Assistant Animation

Congratz on official kick off!!! Looks awesome :-D

Have you been inspired by Simon Stalenhags art for the visual style/setting of the game?

Really looking forward to following the progress of this game :)

Such stunning artwork, it's almost understated in a way but the detail is sublime - love the concrete base rising out of the forest.

Just looking at that last screenshot - like true Bluesmen do we get to squeeze that lemon? And what is that thing on top of the chest of drawers.

Anyway, it looks and sounds fantastic.

Looks beautiful. And considering your music taste in The Samaritan Paradox - it will sound beautiful too.
