Great Cascade is now Thousand Threads
Why change the title?

Shortly after adding Great Cascade to Steam Greenlight, I learned of a game with a similar title. It had a trademark. And mine didn’t. Super frustrating. It meant I’d have to change the title, and get a trademark of my own.

Why Thousand Threads?

I went through a lot of titles before deciding on Great Cascade—something that, for me, touched on the cascading consequences in the game and evoked feelings of being in nature.

The second round of potential titles ended up longer than the first. Names felt too strong or weak, too playful or odd. Some were real contenders but faltered in more practical ways, like being easily misspelled, or just being used by another game. Nothing seemed as good as Great Cascade.

While I was digging through a mountain of quotes I found something, mistakenly attributed to Herman Melville, that summed up a lot of what I feel my game is about, in kind of a beautiful way:

“Ye cannot live for yourselves; a thousand fibres connect you with your fellow-men, and along those fibres, as along sympathetic threads, run your actions as causes, and return to you as effects."
— Henry Melvill

So that’s it. Thousand Threads. I think it’s great, and I hope you do too.

Description
Overview

Thousand Threads is an open world game where characters remember and react to the things you do — where your actions matter.

Maybe you deliver an item for a guy. He gives you a reward and likes you a little more. Or maybe instead of delivering the item, you sell it to the highest bidder. Now the guy hates you. He tells his friends and they hate you. You're rich, but on the run.

It's not a morality system. It's not a scripted story with branching paths. It's a system of cause and effect. Characters have unique personality traits, memories, and goals, so they act and react differently. Your actions build your story.

Give, take, save, kill, inform, hide, be loyal, betray. Do what you want, and deal with the consequences.

Features
  • Open world, open story, single-player.
  • Characters remember and react to the actions you and other characters take.
  • With every new game, the characters' traits and relationships are randomized, so you always get a new experience.
  • Beautiful landscapes to explore.
