Afterlight really does look beautiful, with a "2.5D" style this puzzle-adventure is one to firmly keep an eye on.
It's currently looking for funding on Kickstarter, with Linux as a planned platform for release "Our main platform is PC (Windows, Mac & Linux) via Steam" and their FAQ also makes it clear Linux is a target too. With 24 days to go, they're closing in on half of the $35K goal.
Afterlight is an introspective adventure into the mind of an isolated astronaut in Titan.
This journey is about trust and forced friendship, perception and psychological traumas -as a metaphor for toxic relationships in desperate overcomes.
Check out their trailer:
The teaser doesn't give away too much but it does the job! As a space sci-fi fan, I think it looks very interesting. Will be keeping a close eye on this one!
Features they say it will have:
- A creative interpretation of a large documentation on Titan's environment -bringing a dreamy and beautiful setting.
- An emotional insight into mental disorders, not focused on the cliché aspects, but to talk about their consequences in relationships and personal growth.
- Carefully crafted animations to tell from gestures and little details.
- Vast possibilities in puzzles by getting to control giant robots.
If you wish to pledge your support you can find the Kickstarter here. If you wish to just follow along, it has a page ready up on the Steam store. The full release isn't for a while though, with an estimated date of sometime in "Q3 2020". They've said they do plan a DRM-free release too, with GOG being directly mentioned.
