Tormentum - adventure / puzzle game / developed in Flash Builder / Adobe Air

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

We are OhNoo Studio from Poland, we created a campaign on IndieGoGo for our first game - Tormentum.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tormentum-dark-sorrow

More screens:
http://ohnoo.com/presspack/tormentum_indiegogo/

Tormentum is a surreal adventure game, featuring moral choices.

The action of the game is set in a dark world, veering between dreams and nightmare. The main protagonist, that the player takes control over, doesn't remember his name nor the place where he came from. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.

The dreamlike atmosphere featured in the game was inspired by the works of a Polish painter, Zdzislaw Beksinski, and a recently deceased Swiss painter, H.R.Giger, among others.

Unfortunately, bigger problems seem to arise. The flying ship lands in a big castle and the main hero is soon imprisoned in it. This is how this surreal story from the border of dream and reality begins...

Traversing different areas the hero learns the dark world in which he was imprisoned. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.

2 animated gifs showing parallax effect in our game. It takes several layered planes to get that parallax effect and it was a nightmare for us to make these backgrounds.

That art is Gorgeous!

 

Quick aside, I was ease up a bit the font of your splash screen. It is a bit hard to read (Tormentum) and you don't want anyone struggling to read this. This applies to the flame font, not the screen used in your promo video.

 

What's the gameplay like though? I've seen a lot of gorgeous art but I'm not sure all it all works.

Good use of parallax, very vibrant!
