DYSCOURSE Survival Game To Get Well Known Indie Developers As Characters

Posted by , 20 November 2013 at 12:24 pm UTC / 3308 views
Dyscourse, the new psychological survival adventure game from Owlchemy Labs (Snuggle Truck, Jack Lumber), will ship with an additional bonus scenario titled “Indie Plane Crash,” containing cameos by ten  independent game developers. The game, which tasks players to survive on a mysterious island in the aftermath of a freak plane crash, will now also explore the resulting antics of a group of highly regarded game industry professionals who are “technically talented, but utterly useless in survival situations”.

Sounds interesting, just wait until you see the line-up!

 - Tim Schafer (Psychonauts, Broken Age / Double Fine)
 - Edmund McMillen (Super Meat Boy / Team Meat)
 - Phil Tibitoski (Octodad / Young Horses)
 - Alexander Bruce (Antichamber / Independent)
 - Ron Carmel (World of Goo / 2D Boy)
 - Robin Hunicke (Journey, thatgamecompany / Funomena)
 - Ichiro Lambe (Aaaaa! / Dejobaan Games)
 - Adam Saltsman (Canabalt, Hundreds / Semi Secret Software)
 - Will Stallwood (Auditorium / Cipher Prime)
 - Rami Ismail (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing / Vlambeer)
 
Not bad at all, some big names there you get to play as, will be interesting to see if this boosts their campaign.

Dyscourse, slated to launch in 2014 for Windows/Mac/Linux is currently being funded on Kickstarter with 16 days remaining in the campaign.

Tom Reigsecker (Basilisk Games), Dave Gilbert (Wadjet Eye) are two I'd like to see added. Maybe?
