Strangeland
« on: 27 Mar 2018, 23:44 »
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

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.

This looks absolutely gorgeous and I'm curious to see if the world in the screenshots are from a dream sequence or another dimension.

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!

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;

Very eerie and atmospheric and while I'm not 100% sure I fully understand what's going on in this scene, it's still extremely captivating.
