Two modern "blasts from the past" aim to reinvent interactive fiction

Check out oldmariners review here.

Quote:
Shady Brook, a Twin Peaks-inspired mystery text adventure by indie studio Unimatrix Productions, is now available on Steam!

In Shady Brook, players take on the roles of author Jake Torrent, who moves to a small country town with a dark secret. The game fuses classic room-based explorative text game mechanics with an early 1990s-era graphical interface and can be described as a combination of interactive fiction, point-and-click adventures, visual novels, and gamebooks.

To coincide with the release of Shady Brook, another text game by the same studio has launched on Steam Greenlight: The Filmmaker, a cheesy puzzle-filled tribute to the classic Hollywood B-Movie that is set for release in November.

In The Filmmaker, players take on the role of Brianna Auberon, a young cinephile who recently suffered the loss of her father. Over the course of the game, players will guide her as she explores a haunted theater and finally comes to terms with his death.

Fans of interactive fiction are encouraged to vote for The Filmmaker on Steam Greenlight to help support the growth of text-based gaming.

Both games are part of an ongoing series that aims to reinvent interactive fiction by combining the best elements of classic text adventures, gamebooks, and visual novels. Those interested can read all about the series at its official website, Storycentric Worlds.

Happy Gaming!

According to an itch.io question and answer page:

Quote:
Does itch.io impose any DRM (Digital Rights Management)?

No. itch.io lets users download the games exactly as you uploaded them. No modifications are made to the files you upload.

It was available first on itch.io and is now available on Steam. I have it from itch.io and received an email about the steam key but haven't figured out yet how to get it.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for your interest in Shady Brook! I can confirm that the game is 100% DRM free if you buy it from itch.io. You will get a free Steam key, but you will also get direct access to download the game itself outside of Steam. smile

oldbroad - If you log into your itch.io account, you should be able to go to the Shady Brook download page and get your key from there. Let me know if you need help with this, and I can PM you. smile
