"Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars" Release Date Announced! - 07/20/18 07:23 PM

A NOTE FROM THE DEVELOPER:
While there isn't overt gore or on-screen violence in Arkhangel, there is subject matter and imagery that some might find disturbing. This is a mature game experience.

Winter Night Games, LLC has announced that its first game, Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars, will be released on Steam for Windows and Mac platforms on Friday, July 27th, 2018.

Michael, Lily, and Gabrielle have recently moved to the frigid town of Haven under tragic circumstances. 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. Michael struggles with dreams of dark waters and an unknown ancient evil resting beneath the cold waves. Are these simply dreams or are they a premonition of things to come?

Inspired by the classic point & click adventure games of yesteryear, Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars is a story told through the eyes of a family that has recently moved to an isolated town in the frozen wilderness. Explore, unearth dark mysteries, solve puzzles, engross yourself with deep lore, and interact with a large cast of characters in this rich and layered narrative beautifully underscored by a thematic and emotional musical soundtrack by composer and conductor Chad Seiter (ReCore, Super Lucky's Tale, Star Trek, FRINGE, Lego Jurassic World, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses).

Hey all!

Just wanted to let you know that Arkhangel is available now on Steam!

I recommend picking up the bundle because it comes with the beautiful soundtrack by composer Chad Seiter. If you get the bundle you get both the game and the soundtrack at a 15% discount: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/7391/Arkhangel_The_House_of_the_Seven_Stars__Game__Soundtrack/

Thank you!! We will more than likely release on GOG in the near future. It's basically been all about completing development and getting it out into the wild before looking into additional marketplaces. Keep an eye on our social media feeds or subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop on that (although, I will also try to post in various forums when that happens).

It looks like my kind of game but I still am using Windows 7 extended home edition. It says on their site windows 10. Might need to upgrade in the fall...Not sure what it means when saying windows 7 unsupported...I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to all the computer language. I looked to see it there was a demo for this game but couldn't find one. Often I will download the demo to try the game before buying.

So, I've been seeing some reports online about a handful of issues in Windows 7 with Arkhangel. Since we are a tiny studio, we can't dive into a huge myriad of different home configurations and OS versions out there, so I would say while previous versions of Windows might technically run, it's not supported by us at this time...so play Arkhangel on versions of Windows prior to 10 at your own risk! smile

The game is on my wish list but it will probably wait until I have Windows 10 then.
Thanks and Congrats Zack!

Likewise, if you'd like to listen to the soundtrack on Spotify, take a listen here (although I do recommend buying it since it's higher quality on Steam/iTunes/Amazon, etc...plus it gives our composer Chad Seiter a little more cash):

Enjoy!

Just a heads up that we’ve been tweaking player control settings, adding game controller support, and an option to let the player run. An update will be coming in a couple of weeks.

Hi Zack,
Thanks for your updates. I went to Steam for a look, and really liked what I saw. It has now been released, but I will need a good text walkthrough before making my purchase. At my age (87). I'll need all the help I can get LOL. Lots of luck on your new venture.
