Summary

Summary: 
A Croatian company, active in the field of game development, is looking for partners under a financial agreement to support development of their new game

Description

Description: 

A Croatian company, active in the gaming industry, was established in 2008 as a online shop for video games. In 2015 they’ve started an indie game development studio and entered the world of game creating.

Companies vision is to become a game development studio specialized in story-driven games and to develop high quality gaming experiences with a strong focus on engaging narratives, fun gameplay and immersive worlds.

They are currently developing a 2.5D point and click adventure game for Windows, Mac and Linux. The game merges psychological horror and classically inspired point and click adventure gameplay with switchable characters. At the moment, the free demo is available which enables playing the beginning of the game and shows the vision for the full game.

The final version of the game will have hefty number of locations the players will be able to visit, some of which are shown in the demo. The company is also preparing a themed comic book which will cover part of the game's background story.

The full scenario for the game is still being worked on. The company wants to finalize the construction of a reasonable and compelling narrative around characters and they are using Articy Draft for this part of the work - a software which permits creation of the game's scenario and gameplay itself, logic and puzzles included.

Next, the company will complete the integration of the game into Unity engine, which serves as a technical background for implementation of their work in Articy Draft. Afterwards, they’ll be able to evaluate and review how all of its elements behave together.

The company is looking for partners under a financial agreement, who will invest in the game and support its development. Potential partners should have experience in the gaming industry.
