Announcing Myosotis

2011-09-01 15:19:12 by ImpendingRiot

Long time no see, NG. Sort of.

So seeing as my dear friend Tomamoto mentioned me, and specifically my new game, in his latest news post, I figured now was as good as a time as any to talk a little bit about it since I've gotten a few queries about what my next project would be.

It's called Myosotis

I'm doing the art, code, and story. The amazingly talented and generous Hania is doing the music.

It's going to be a point and click game, set in the 1940s. Visually, I'm going for a very stylistic black and white look.

Don't worry, it isn't going to be LA Noire 2d. I don't want to give away any major plot points, but there's a surreal element to the game that I think will help separate it from the pack.

I hate naming release dates, but if I had to guess, I'd say it should be done by late October.

Honestly I'm really excited for it. I don't expect it to change the flash world or anything, but I'm passionate about it. Truly passionate about it. I haven't "believed" in one of my projects in a long time. In fact, it's nearly one year since I've made anything. Kind of alarming. Life happens. Anyways, the good news is that I was afraid I was going to have to rush on Myosotis in order to make a quick buck. Not trying to give a sob story, but I literally had less than $50 to my name at one point. Thanks to a few very well-needed breaks and opportunities, I'm safe for at least a few more months so I'm confident that the game I release will be a game I'm proud to release, not one I had to release.

So that's about it. I'm alive again, I'm working on Flash again, it feels good again.

Not to be mistaken with Mitosis: is the process by which a eukaryotic cell separates the chromosomes in its cell nucleus into two identical sets in two nuclei.

Can't wait :)

ImpendingRiot responds:

Science all up in this news post!

Haha thanks dude, as brief as it was I enjoyed out NG Art convo. Good times

Huh.........It might not be a horror theme'd one but in some ways it reminds me of Amnesia The Dark Descent.

Also nice connection in the title there. I think I see where this might be going but I won't be sure unless or until you bring in more about it.

That or when you release it.

Speaking of which do you think you might ever do another one kind of like Alice Is Dead? Only horror or maybe a bit more bloody? I think you'd sky rocket on that.

ImpendingRiot responds:

Yeah this one is still going to be creepy, I'm not sure if it is horror or not though.

We're strongly considering another entry into the Alice is Dead universe at this point.

Sounds lovely! I've always loved the black and white, noire look.

Glad to know that Hania is involved in this new game, too~

ImpendingRiot responds:

Yeah, she's great :)

That would be a recommendation on my part lol. Really loved that Series, in fact if you do make another part you can show someone succeding where Rabbit failed (When he got shot in the head in the elevator by the homesexual Queen).

And I know we know where that cat like creature came from but you could make it like a side mission with a few medals to return her to human form.

It was that doctor's daughter combined with that cat in the recording we heard isn't it?

ImpendingRiot responds:

Yup, that was Burr's Daughter and a test cat combined

ImpendingRiot responds:

Thanks, I appreciate it :)
