Developed by the British developer Tayanna Studios, a "one-man" outfit from West Yorkshire. This is their second full game to be commercially released. Being a movie / adventure hybrid this time around there's obviously more than just Darren Hall of Tayanna Studios involved with a varied cast of characters.

"I am excited to share the amazing work of our fantastic team and the opportunity to tell this deep story which will allow players to feel as if they are living out the adventure themselves that captures the essence of what FMV and interactive story-telling is all about." — Darren Hall of Tayanna Studios.

You can buy it on Steam.

There is no Dark Side in the Moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark.

It's a damn good album though.

Ah, you made my day!
I was deliberately cryptic with this obscure reference, curious to see who (if any) gets it.
And I know it was rather off topic, but it was impossible for me to resist.

If you're referring to the Pink Floyd album, "obscure" ain't the word you're looking for. It's one of the most well known and most highly regarded albums of all times.

Game looks cool as well, great trailer!

Yeah the album is anything but obscure, but he probably thought his Roger Waters quote was a bit less well known. In any case, it brightened my workday, reading his comment with "Time" playing in the background.

I live near a small town called Marwayne (population: 521). I initially read Marywine as Marwayne and thought what an obscure location to place this story!

Thank you, now I've got "and if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the darkside of the moon" in my head for the last 20 minutes

No, the specific quote I posted is arguably obscure, is just after the final piece of the album and at a somewhat lower volume, not impossible to miss. Heck, the whole album is riddled with things like this. It took me a good while to discover all (?) of them. Some of them are just barely audible. And if you listen to the quadraphonic version you'll find some more (not present on the stereo version).

Now if they wanted to be cryptic, they'd say "It looks good, but not as good as several species of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a Pict."

First bit of Pink Floyd I ever heard.
