Wadjet Eye Games will release this urban fantasy adventure for Windows in 2018.

Watch the trailer here.

Check out the Official website here.

Quote:
With dark forces hell-bent on destroying New York City, it's always been up to the Unavowed to keep the evil in check. For centuries this supernatural squad has quietly protected humanity by driving hungry demons back into the shadows. But something has changed. Their age-old methods are no longer working. New blood is required to protect the mundane world from a threat stronger than any these crime fighters have faced -- and that's where you come in.

Taking inspiration from story-heavy RPGs like Dragon Age while staying true to Wadjet Eye's point-and-click roots, Unavowed is an ambitious evolution for the developer of the Blackwell mystery series and publisher of Gemini Rue, Technobabylon, and other acclaimed indie adventures. We'll have a lot more to say leading up to launch, but here are a few choice tidbits to get you excited:

• Make decisions about the player character's gender and background that influence the storyline.
• Build a party from four secondary characters whose unique skills change puzzle solutions.
• Feast your eyes on gorgeously gritty pixel art graphics with double the pixels of any previous Wadjet Eye game. (That's right, we're talking 640x360 resolution! The future is now!)



Happy Gaming!

Hurrah for Wadjet Eye, which usually comes closer to my idea of perfect synergy between game play and story than most developers, indie or otherwise.

I wonder how and why the decision to double the resolution got made.

8dognight, I read that it's because it allows for more detailed pixel art. In the past, the resolution used was decided upon based on creative and budgetary decisions. This is what I have gathered based on reading forums where Dave Gilbert has posted.

For this game he decided to go with a different resolution - nothing too drastic, but allowing for more detail.

I just interviewed Dave Gilbert on Unavowed, the Blackwell Series, the other Wadjet Eye Games, and on game development generally. smile

Wow, it looks FABULOUS! I also enjoyed their after-clip video recounting the history of their games and development strategies. I would love to play a game like this, but sadly, I can't take the stress of fighting anymore.

I could be wrong, Reenie, but I don't think there's going to be any "fighting" in this game. If it was that kind of game, this thread would not have been put in Adventure Game Discussions. smile

Thanks, Marion. I watched the video and saw the characters flashing swords and shooting in several scenes. So, what you are saying is that this is very minor in the game play? I get chest pain now if stressed. Have had to quit several games because of this.

I think it's going to be minor, yes. I will be really surprised if it isn't. smile

I've done some research and have been following the project. There won't be any combat at all. It's all puzzle solving, and it's choice based as well, similar to the Life is Strange games. I would imagine the puzzles are probably a bit more challenging than they are in those games, however. smile
