March 9, 2017- Coral Spring, Fl- Broken Bunny Studios is proud to announce that their game “Dark Hope” has been placed on Steam Greenlight for public review.

You wake up in a small room with a massive headache in a strange facility seemingly devoid of life. You find on a table next to you a photo of a child and a medical chart with a bleak outlook. Who is this child? Who are you? Where are you and why? What was that strange noise?

Inspired by classic puzzle adventure games like Myst , Dark Hope is a puzzle adventure game set in a steampunk world where electricity started and ended its existence with the light bulb. The vast majority of the puzzle are environmental mechanical puzzles and discovering clues as to the nature of this strange facility. Dark Hope will tell you the story of your own past and the story of the crimes that have occurred by discovering small story elements that you must piece together while playing.

We wanted to make a game that challenged people mentally, one where you carry the story and the puzzles with you all day until you get home to see if you found the solution. If you have ever experienced one of those moments where you solve a puzzle because it finally makes sense and not because you just lucked out that is the best feeling in the world. ”- Chris lead developer.


While the game is still in early development A small alpha demo is being made available to press and publishers for review. This alpha does not contain any story elements to avoid publishing spoilers and is intended to show off the puzzles to be found within the game.

Dark Hope has found its way onto Greenlight and being the niche game that it is needs the support of the community in order to pass. Every vote Dark Hope receives is one vote closer to being able to release onto the largest gaming market known to man.


Happy Gaming!

Not a good start. The Alpha Demo isn't working for me. Can't do anything, I think I am in a room but the sound makes me think I am in a train boxcar. No controls work, can't move or interact.

Edit:
I deleted the game and re-Unzipped the Demo and it seems to be working now. Thanks

The 3/9 build has a now known bug with the final puzzle that will be correct on the 3/10 build.

Todays 3/9 has a bug, Greyfuss. The build he will create tomorrow is 3/10. You have to have 3/9.

Latest build we start player out close to the lasted puzzle.

If you wish to enjoy the entire demo game. Simply walk around to the elevator and jump down and you will be right back to the normal start location

Hi Broken Bunny

Are you planning on changing the Interact (E) key with a Left Mouse click in your final build or at least try it with a Beta Build? I find using the E Key very clumsy.

Re: Dark Hope Alpha Demo and Greenlight - 03/10/17 10:01 AM

Yes I do. It is just that the clicks interfere with my software when it's inside the editor. So for now it is stuck on e so I can work without the mouse doing crazy things.


I hate E as well
