Far-off Daydream Games has been working on an indie adventure game inspired by traditional adventure titles like Broken Sword.
Here are some links and more details about our game:
The game blends together the Point & Click Adventure and Visual Novel genres into an engaging experience that gives you a combination of player-directed interactivity and immersive narrative characterization as you navigate between paths of light and darkness.
Far-off Daydream just launched a KickStarter Campaign for their dark humorous adventure game A Near Dawn. It is greatly inspired by traditional adventures like Broken Sword, Blackwell, and Ace Attorney, as well as darker stories like Steins;Gate and even Twin Peaks. We have a Prologue you can download and play on Windows / Mac / Linux / Android from: Itch.io, Steam, and Google Play.
A Near Dawn is a charmingly devastating psychological thriller with laughs, gut-wrenching crashes, and mature themes – produced by Far-off Daydream Games. The story is one part darkness and two parts humor!
When Seattle-based attorney, Sam Nichols – a character that seems to be suffering some disturbing psychological difficulties – takes on an important new case, he finds himself exposed to progressively dire circumstances that threaten to unravel his reality and destroy those closest to him. With his mentor’s firm on the brink of collapse, Sam will have to take on a ruthless multinational corporation defended by some of the vilest people imaginable. The odds already seem out of favor, but you will soon learn that things were never as they appeared – as an even deeper conspiracy begins to emerge. Where will you find yourself if you keep untangling the threads to this mystery? You must be brave to uncover the truth! Our Prologue introduces some of the key characters, the setting (Downtown, Seattle), and hints at the challenges coming ahead. The case seems typical. It is not. One of the concepts for this project was to start from the present day, reality as we know it, and progress down a deep well of psychological, even supernatural mysteries.
- Gorgeous artwork rendered in 1080HD
