This looks fantastic!  I'm a big fan of what I've seen from Jen and Matt on Twitter.  Story looks like it should be interesting too.

Looking tremendous and it's an interesting setting - I look forward to it!

I love that flat shading, and that fun sort of twisted perspective on the first screenshot is wonderful. DoTT springs to mind of course, but Matt has put his own stamp on this.

Just finished testing a really early version of this game.  Considering the love and attention that's being poured into it, I think the end result could be something very special. ;)

This looks like a really cute game, I can’t wait to play!  About how long do you estimate it will be (as in, full-length vs. medium or short game)?

Thanks! short to medium? It's not short as something like a MAGS game, but it's short and (hopefully) sweet!

Thanks Petter! Your most recent screenshot for Whispers of a Machine was a delight. Yep, Jen and Matt have really knocked it out of the park (and there's more goodies to come!)

I lived and worked in that area for several months, a long time ago.   The pics bring back a lot of memories.  I still have a pair of hand made boots from a shop that I swear is n the vicinity of one of your scenes.  I don't like bull fighting either but had attended an event in the old Roman arena, where the bulls had ribbons or strings tied to their horns.  There were several human teams of two that took turns trying to extricate the string/ribbons for points.  The human competitors were completely unarmed  and no harm came to the bulls, except for being a little annoyed.  The humans came away bloodied and battered.  Thoroughly enjoyable experience!  (laugh).

That's cool! I've had a few people say they've been to, or are from, Arles so hopefully it's somewhat like the real thing! That sounds like a fun event. The bull fighting elements gives me an excuse for fun little bits like
