'A Short Tale of Solitude' Gameplay Trailer
Release date: Q2 2015
A Short Tale of Solitude is a game of the border adventure, survival horror and slaher convention made in black and white. This title tackles an era and themes not often seen in the video game medium. Set in northern France during World War I, players are thrust into the role of Sebasten, a 10-year old boy living in an abandoned orphanage. Inspired in part by literary works such as Lord of the Flies, the orphanage’s power structure has given way from adults to warring groups of children. Sebasten, lonely and distraught, must find his place amongst the adolescent society as the story takes an otherworldly turn.

Key Features:
  • Monochrome visuals, children giggling, sharp tools swinging, awkward movements...
  • “Non template” models and textures.
  • A huge, explorable orphanage with multiple floors and buildings (about 180 locations).
  • Your decisions on the main quest can have long-lasting impacts on the rest of the game.
  • Sanity meter mechanic.
  • A lot of random characters and situations.
