Isolation - this time literally
April 3, 2020
Coming to Kickstarter soon!
Waking up with superpowers and no memory, five strangers find themselves in a struggle for survival and a search for answers. Pursued relentlessly, will their hardships bring them closer together or turn them against each other? And will everyone make it to the end?
As Subject 5, you will have to make decisions that affect the entire group. Choosing your every line of dialogue, you will - directly or indirectly down the line - determine their ultimate fates.
Everything you say and do will impact your companions' feelings towards you, each other, and themselves. Any two characters may be rivals in one playthrough and friends in the next, leading to different conflicts and group dynamics every time.
Regardless of Subject 5's gender and orientation, you will have the option to pursue a romance with other characters. Whether sexual or emotional in nature, these relationships will feature prominently in the game.
Think fast and find clever ways to use your powers on the environment to defeat your enemies.
Alright, last update aged like milk. Correction: life is doing the opposite of going back to normal.
In February, I wrote about feeling isolated as a small indie studio until meeting others on the same path. Complaining about isolation in a figurative sense, now seems spoiled and trivial in the time of literal isolation and social distancing.
But with all the bad, it also feels as though we are all coming together, finding ways to brighten each others' day. Emotional distance has gone the opposite way of physical.
We are lucky. Since my husband and I are normally working from our shared home, getting additional game assets digitally, not much has changed and we are still able to continue making Super/Human Identity. Escapism is important right now. Both being able to play games and, in our case, making them will do a lot for our mental wellbeing in the time to come.
We are looking forward to finishing and sharing our demo soon. Until then, stay safe and take care!
