Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 06/25/18 08:24 PM

Yeli Orog will be releasing Jul 13, 2018.

You can check it out here.

Quote:
Yeli Orog is an FMV adventure game about an immense archaeological discovery: A bizarre stone tablet written in the Celtiberian language found buried underneath an ancient dolmen in northern Spain. The inscription written on the tablet tells a ghoulish tale believed to be the Celtiberian origin myth.

You play the role of Johnny Robin, an archaeologist sent to Asturias, Spain to assist in the recovery of Celtiberian remains. Upon arrival to Asturias you find yourself unexpectedly transported to an alien world, experiencing first-hand the terrifying story written on the ancient tablet.

If you are a fan of Myst-like games, interactive stories with puzzle elements, and FMV games, you will appreciate Yeli Orog.


Happy Gaming!

If anyone has a question about the game or how it was made, feel free to ask me, i'll watch this thread.

I had been envisioning an entirely FMV Myst-like adventure game for years, and i'm very excited to finally be releasing a finished project.

I'm no Myst expert.
[I've attempted several and totally completed "ONE" redface]

But I certainly DO like FMV games. Yahoo !!

Thanks very much grin

I struggled with the Myst games as well. But the core game mechanics of Myst (the interactive slide show setup) inspired me a lot, for years I was envisioning a fully FMV version of Myst. Yeli Orog uses similar game mechanics but with videos and 3D sound, and it is more story focused than puzzle heavy.

Hi YeliOrog,
I noticed in the trailer a couple of scenes were it was dark and you had to search around with a flashlight, are there many scenes like this? Just curious because I am not very good using a flashlight to spot things.

Thanks in advance

Those who like Myst have fun with this but wandering around alone is not my cup of tea.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 06/28/18 09:40 PM

Hello,
There are two scenes with a flashlight, in one part you have to find something, and in the other you have to shoot some monsters (like in the trailer). In general the game is not too hard (definitely much easier than Myst for example), but if you have trouble with flashlights you might find the shooting part to be difficult.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 06/29/18 01:11 AM

Thank you YeliOrog for the quick response, so only 2 scenes with the Flashlight, well that is acceptable, although one scene you hold a flashlight and shoot, hmm! if I ever get to that part I will bring my own Floodlight idea to the scene.

At the moment I am only releasing it on Steam, but I would like to release it on more places soon.

Please consider http://fireflowergames.com/
if GOG doesn't accept the game.

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind. I heard that itch.io is also a good option.

I don't do Steam. I will be waiting for a non-Steam DRM-free version.

There is no DRM included with Yeli Orog, it can be downloaded and played without the Steam client. However I do hope to have an additional place to sell it setup soon.

YeliOrog, congratulations on the release!
But is it true that 'Windows 10' is actually a requirement, as listed on Steam page?
Won't it run on Windows 7? That's a sad thing actually.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/14/18 10:18 PM


I was under the impression that all Steam games could only be downloaded using the Steam client. Am I wrong in this? Is there another way?

I put windows 10 because I haven't had the opportunity to test it properly on a computer running Windows 7. I tried it on a very old laptop running Windows 7 and it worked, but it was a bit less responsive then with the other computers I tried. I'm not sure if it was because of Windows 7 or the laptop itself.

The games are all downloaded through Steam, yes, but not all games require Steam to actually run the game. In the case of Yeli Orog, you can go to the Steam folder containing the game files and load the game from there. Or you can move the game files to wherever you want.

I will definitely be trying the Non-Steam version on my Win7 machine as soon as possible thumbsup

Hi YeliOrog,

I read on a Steam review that you cannot save your game and that you need to play the game in one sitting. Just curious if this is true.

Thanks for your help.
Posted by: YeliOrog

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/16/18 06:57 PM

Hello,
Yes, that is true. The game is meant to be played in a single sitting.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/16/18 10:40 PM

Thank you for your quick response. I love what your game is all about so I will plan my time wisely.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/16/18 11:01 PM

Yeli, is there any way for you to patch the game and create a save feature? I for one, can't tell you the last time I had a real chunk of time to play a game and I'm thrilled to get a half hour without interruptions. I know a lot of others who are in the same predicament as me.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/17/18 10:55 AM

Hi YeliOrog..

I too am anxious to get your game but I too will wait for GOG to offer it DRM free ! No Steam for me either.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/17/18 11:11 AM

I had to tell Yeli, I am also unable to play the game and I just don't have a 2 or 3 hour span of time to play a game at once. After I had to start from the beginning twice, I had to give it up. I really would like to finish playing it though!

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/17/18 12:48 PM

I don't plan to add a save feature, sorry.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/25/18 07:31 PM

Yeli Orog is now available on Itch.io for anyone wanting a non-Steam version:

That's too bad, no save, takes it off my list...

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/25/18 09:04 PM

It still uses Steam though. That doesn't bother me but does not help the people who don't want to use Steam. Or is that just an extra that you can use or not use?

I think it's the regular download and a Steam key is offered in addition.

Re: Announcing Yeli Orog - A FMV Adventure - 07/25/18 09:36 PM

What Marian said is correct, you get the game files plus an optional Steam key.

Okay, thanks Marian and YeliOrog. I couldn't tell for sure.

You can't Save? Yup, count me out also, too bad, looked like a very good game otherwise.
