Well it's been half a decade or something - seems like about time for us to produce another point and click!

Strangeland

A man awakes in an otherworldly carnival and watches a gold-haired woman hurl herself down a bottomless well for his sake. He seeks empty answers from mocking ravens, an eyeless scribe, a living furnace, a mismade mermaid, and many more who dwell within the park. All the while, something awful screeches from the top of a towering roller-coaster, and he knows that until he destroys this Dark Thing, the woman will keep jumping, falling, and dying, over and over again ....

TRAILER

Games with this much brown aren't usually good looking games, you broke the mould! Intriguing universe.

Take a look at Primordia.

Looks A LOT like a darker version of the dream sequence in Shardlight (save for the screenshot with the big face). I'm sold.

True, I bought that as well, but like most pc games I haven't got around to playing any for some time. Anyway, I was trying to say something positive believe it or not, ha.

Great news! I loved Primordia. This is looking really good as well, definitely looking forward to it ;-D

This looks absolutely gorgeous and I'm curious to see if the world in the screenshots are from a dream sequence or another dimension.
Either way this looks great! ;-D

Thanks so much for the comments y'all!

I'll try to keep an eye on/update this thread with more details when time permits - so yeah watch this space.

I like the palette comments and comparisons to Shardlight - hehehe very kind. :)

@blondebraid All shall soon be revealed in the waxing of the moon... Or posted here as screenshots, one of the two!

Day 1 purchaser! Full marks for art, concept, and trailer. Primordia converted me to AGS, and I think that Strangeland may keep me in AGS a bit longer!

Ooo...This looks exciting. Can't wait to see a bit more.

Hello Pinback,
Is it Miranda Gauvin's voice in the trailer? Is she playing a role in the game (voice or something)?
Graphics look so great & remember the same Sanitarium's spooky head of clown circus & amazing so dark mood :D
Can't wait, folks & remember: keep up the good work!

Yes! Indeed it is Miranda Gauvin and yes, we're hoping to have her as part of the voice cast for Strangeland - I won't say to what extent yet because I don't want to spoil anything.

Sanitarium has indeed been a fairly big inspiration (at least on the art/atmosphere) side of things.

Thanks @SilverSpook & @Two Tales!

Little update; testing is underway but we're doing some major retooling alongside - part of this process will be adding vision sequences, and here's a taste of that;
