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.

July 19th, 2018 – Seattle, WA

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).

3D point & click adventure game created with Unity3D
Deep narrative with abundant lore to discover and absorb
Gorgeous environments in a moody and atmospheric world to explore
Large cast of characters to interact with
Cinematic musical score by Chad Seiter (ReCore, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, Super Lucky's Tale)
Direct tie-in to the tabletop game, The Great Nameless
Windows & Mac OSX

PC - Windows 10 (Windows 7 SP1+ compatible but unsupported); i3 Core @ 2.9 GHz; 4 GB RAM; Graphics card with DX10 (shader model 4.0) capabilities; 5.2 GB available space.

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):

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.

Here's the default controller layout for the upcoming patch for "Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars". You'll be able to modify it to your liking. The game controller is quickly becoming our preferred way of playing the game!

We're getting closer and closer to wrapping this patch up. It's been a big one! laugh

I watched a video playthrough of this game, and I am not thrilled about the absence of voices as opposed to just text. but I'm still considering it as long as I can find a good text walkthrough.

Check out screen here.

Hey all!

We are very excited to announce that the long-overdue update for Arkhangel is now available with a limited time special promotion sale at 33% off list price!

So, what all is included with this update? Let's get to it, shall we?

---

UPDATES:
+ Added full game controller support. This was a full replacement of the Unity Input System! Yowza!
+ Significant overhaul to Player navigation settings and speed.
+ Added a "Run" option to allow the player to explore at a faster rate.
+ Restructured menus to allow for easier controller navigation.
+ Inventory has been significantly overhauled. It is now opened/closed by an input key rather than a mouse over. Interaction methodology and presentation has also changed. This has had cascading effects on multiple other systems that required adjustments.
+ Visual Quality settings, Screen Resolution settings, and Controller Customization are now all handled with in-game menu interactions.
+ Updated multiple camera transitions in the game to be fades rather than movement based.
+ Updated camera positions and control perspective in the Library and Saloon.
+ A ton of small tweaks and adjustments!

KNOWN ISSUES:
+ Use previous saved games at your own risk! With the sheer amount of changes to the underlying systems of Arkhangel, we cannot 100% guarantee that loading into old save games before this update will be completely reliable. By all means, give it a shot, but know that there very well could be significant issues with player animation, controls, and menus.
+ We recommend using D-PAD when navigating through menus with a game controller.

---

This update took significantly longer than we expected. Being the only Unity developer on our team, I (Zack) vastly underestimated the number of hurdles and cascading effects that such an update was going to introduce. That being said, we've had a lot of great feedback on this update. Friend of Winter Night Games and game industry veteran, James Goddard gave us some incredibly valuable advice regarding player speed, animation settings, and controller feel. When the guy that worked on Street Fighter II gives pointers, you LISTEN!

Thanks James! :-D

As always, continue to give us feedback. Your thoughts and insights have been incredibly valuable and are the main reason why we pushed so hard on this update. We knew that the controls needed some love and your guidance made us really want to focus on it with a microscope! Y'all help us grow!

Okay, with that being said, the update is now live! If you've already played the game, we'd love for you to check out the new control scheme and some of the other bells and whistles. If you've been waiting for this update to take the plunge, the limited time sale at 33% off is a great way to dive in! :-)

I thought this was a point & click game. Can you still play it with a mouse? Is it mouse & keyboard? I saw the sale because this is on my Steam wishlist but I don't have Windows 10 so won't be purchasing the game until I do, but I'm starting to think I will not like the controls.

It's mouse and keyboard by default but you use keyboard keys to navigate (WASD or arrow). You can also use a game controller.
