Title: Anthology - a new thing from Lewis, Grundislav and Khaled - New screens 5 Oct!
Post by: Lewis on 07 Feb 2017, 15:31
Well this is very exciting, a thing I've been scurrying away on behind the scenes (I'd like to say since Richard & Alice / Sepulchre but actually since about October). Anyway, in conjunction with the always-wonderful Grundislav and exquisite non-AGS-forumite Khaled Makhshoush, I now present...

Teaser Trailer! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3iMBdUY8j0) || Website! (http://anthologygame.com) || Steam Greenlight! (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=855397700)

A collection of short adventures, on a single afternoon, in a faraway city...

Anthology is a collection of short adventure games by Lewis Denby (that's me!), the co-creator of Owl Cave's critically acclaimed Richard & Alice and the producer of Sepulchre (The Charnel House Trilogy).

Set in a faraway city on a single afternoon, a series of point-and-click vignettes unravels the story of this strangely familiar world, its sprawling capital, and the lives of those who dwell within it.

Thanks!

Tentatively summer. We'll see how we go. 1 game of 5 is 100% finished. Another is nearing completion. Art and animation for the rest are coming along. I'd say from inception to completion we're around 40-50% of the way through.

This looks tantalizing! I love the sepia palette. First screen reminds me of final fight :)

Looking great guys! I love the concept, I imagine each of the smaller stories will link together somehow?

OK, that's a blast from the past. Neptune was, what, a full decade ago? The project that taught me to set scope and limits in game design, and not try to make a 10-hour action-adventure epic while attempting to finish university.

Thanks! The stories do link together, in so far as they each contribute to building up a picture of the world and its wider story.

The stories link together in so far as they build up a picture of the wider world and its story - but each individual character has their own story too!

Anyway: positive news! We were Greenlit, so can confirm that this will be on Steam when it's done. More stuff to show you guys shortly...

This looks really interesting! I love the idea of all the individual stories coming together to build up a picture of the wider world.

Looks fascinating, and it's fun to see an anthology game, that's a fun and unusual take on storytelling in games! :)
