Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning is NOW AVAILABLE for purchase on our online store here:[/h1]


You have learned that your grandfather - Alfred Cypress, who you never knew you had, has disappeared. He was an eccentric and brilliant man who developed and programmed Artificial Intelligence into his living and working environments which are in different locations around the world. With Alfred's disappearance, the A.I. programs have become more self-aware, protective, and possessive of the items they protect. As your journey begins on a mysterious island, using the technology and assets provided to you, find and protect your legacy as well as all the documents and needed information hidden on Cypress Island. You only have 72 hours to complete the tasks that are put before you. With this all in mind, you must use strategy, patience, stay strong and be careful to accomplish your objectives.


If you are looking for a realistic, non-tutorial, action/ adventure RPG, then look no further. Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning delivers a true-to-life, stealthy gaming experience set in multiple open worlds. As you experience our true cause and effect system while on the path to achieving your goals, the strategy you use will have consequences and those decisions will ultimately determine your success or failure. Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning will give you a unique gaming experience to enjoy. Highly recommended to read the “How to Play” instructions and to listen carefully to the voice-over in the beginning of the game in order to have clear direction.


Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning will be the First installment of a total of Three Chapters which will make up this PC Game. It will be the single largest installment with remaining Chapters to be released as follows: Chapter Two in March 2014, Chapter Three in July 2014. Each of these additional Chapters will consist of several hours of additional gameplay. The best part is that each additional Chapter will be added to Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning PC Game at NO EXTRA CHARGE and will simply be made available through the main menu of the game.


We are glad to announce that we will be implementing support for Oculus Rift in Cypress Inheritance: The Beginning PC Game. We believe it will be a great feature for our game that will add even more excitement. This feature will be added sometime in early 2014.

When will this be available for purchase through Steam? I am very interested in playing the game and providing construtive feedback and ideas.

@demonixis Not available at the moment but maybe possible in the near future.

It look like great and nice to play but what about Linux version ?

@alquaev Wanted to say, appreciate feedback and agree that having more of a look to character draws attention. Like going to a car show, cars with models draw attention. But get past that and if car doesn't have the right features, does not run well, maybe not that fun to drive, then all that really is there is the model. Really wanted the first game in series to have substance, run well and establish the story. Also in doing this, wanted the main character to be pretty but also normal in her personality, actions and how she dresses. Ultimately, let player connect to character, have cause and effect and as you said actually be able to play again without being the same. As we add two chapters to this game we will increase these and give an even better experience, as well same moving into series on next games. You are correct in can't be to good and we want the story and game to stand out, without at times is in games that is not adding anything to game. Thanks again!

I didn't say the game is bad. Moreover, I did say I like it, which means it's good ( for me, of course ). I'm considering buying it after I finish few games I'm playing right now, regardless of the availability of the game in Steam.
What I did say, is that the mentioned possibility would make the game even better ( again, from my point of view ). You can't be too good, right? :) And considering you really might want to play the game again and again because of the randomness (which is great!), an option to have different looks for the character would be nice.
Hope I'm not misunderstood by the developers :) It'd be nice to have a word on the subject from you. Cheers!
