As they begin to rebuild their lives in this new home and meet the townsfolk of Haven, they quickly discover that not everything is what it appears to be.

Thanks for the post, Ana!

I don’t want to waste everyone’s time with a ton of self-promotion on this site; because I’d rather just chat about adventure games themselves, so I’ll do this one thread and periodically update with big news from time to time but I’ll keep most of that to our blog, newsletter, and social media feeds.

Anyway, “Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars” is a point & click built in Unity3D with the Adventure Creator system and it’s based off of a short story that I was plunking around with over 10 years ago. I would work on it for awhile, realize that I didn’t really know how to tell that narrative, and put it away.

It was in 2012 when I was playing through a bunch of old Sierra games that it finally clicked. I COULD tell the story the way I wanted to in an adventure game setting. I gave my brother a ring, I hashed out the story outline and the design doc in a couple of months and began prototyping.

I had a bunch of my own systems in place but they were all rudimentary and…to be frank…not all that great. Once Adventure Creator was released, all bets were off. I’ve been in active production on this thing in my off-hours for a couple of years. This involved building out locations, creating levels, tweaking systems, building shaders, texturing, modeling, animating, etc, etc, etc…

While I still have a long way to go, I’m at a point now that I feel comfortable showing it off and talking about it a bit more.

Thanks for the read! smile

I must be missing it but I don't see any info on whether this is a First Person or Third Person game. Maybe I have over looked it somewhere.

Hey GreyFuss!

It's Third Person. Some puzzles take a first person perspective, but it's primarily fixed camera with the player moving around in scene. Once you hit the scene's edge, it'll either shift to a new camera perspective or track the player's movement.

I actually just updated the game info on the page to make sure people knew that it's Third Person. Thanks for that! smile

*snorts awake*

AHHH!!

So...Um...I've been quiet lately...a little *too* quiet, if you ask me.

Just wanted to ping everyone about Arkhangel. It's still going strong and we are looking to (hopefully) release at the end of this year. I'm past alpha and pretty much at a "beta" stage. I'm working with the composer now to finalize musicians and recording sessions, doing some finalizing tweaks to puzzles and gameflow (although, you can play the game all the way through now), starting work on cinematics (eesh...that's going to be the time consuming one at this point), and crushing bugs.

We recently overhauled our webpage:
www.winternightgames.com

We also released the official artwork for the game:
http://static1.squarespace.com/static/59...Art_Full_v2.png

We're getting there! smile

Hey all!

I put together a quick gameplay teaser for Arkhangel. Check it out if you get the chance!

This is already using some old footage but I got to the point where I was updating things so rapidly, that I needed to say "ENOUGH" and go through what I had and put something together. Plus, it was just good to take a step back from development and do something linear. smile

Gameplay Teaser - https://vimeo.com/226576976

Hope you all are doing well!

Hi! It's a Unity game, so it should work fine on Win7. Looking at the min specs for Unity 2018 (which is a newer version than what Arkhangel is built on) and it can go all the way back to Vista. It might not perform as well, but it should run. I'll do some testing!

OK, just wanted to ask the question since some of us have not gone to Win 10 yet, although we'll be forced to soon I guess.
