Waking the Glares - Chapters I and II is out!
Steam implementation has started!
Waking the Glares is a first person adventure, compatible with Oculus Rift, that tells the story of Dawnfall, a wanderer who finds himself lost in a universe where time and space are twisted because of a book.
In this journey the player will follow a voice through seven different worlds, each one with a unique atmosphere, a unique personality and with a slightly different gameplay accordingly to the place where he finds himself.

Only through the full understanding of the secrets and meanings behind the book Dawnfall, and so the player, will find the way back home.

Key features:
- Exploration-based gameplay that will require an attention to the environment from a visual and acoustic point of view
- A various setting (seven different worlds)
- Great story with no plot holes, where every single element in the game has a reason to be
- Three different levels of narration: the game, the mysterious book and... the third one the player will find out
- Oculus Rift compatibility

Take a look at our screenshots, watch our video and play our demo... and let us know what you think!


The Story

The main character is Dawnfall, a lost wanderer who travels in a fragmented universe where time and space are twisted. Until he meets a mysterious voice that guides him in a journey that will bring him to fabulous places, meeting challenges that he never thought he could face and that will allow him to find the way back home.


Waking the Glares is made by seven chapters (all included in the game; not split in different releases) and each chapter will have a different atmosphere, different challenges and, therefore, a different gameplay in every stage of the game.

The exploration-based gameplay will require the player to pay attention to the environment from a visual and acoustic point of view. This will imply the alternation of intense research phases and moments where the player is called for fast thinking and crucial decision taking within a very short time span.

The gameplay of each chapter has been thought coherently with the environment and with the story the place tells, in order to create the higher level of immersivity since what has allowed the player to pass through a chapter could be not that useful in the next. We are confident that we will deliver a game that never gets boring but that never stops to be a first person adventure (no action fptrs here!).

Virtual Reality

The idea to create a visionary and fascinating adventure comes from the great experience we had with the Oculus Rift.

Waking the Glares will fully support those devices that offer the Virtual Reality experience.

Moreover, the new born Virtual Reality has given us an ambitious objective: to create a game that was pleasing without the using of new devices and that the VR could enhance in its immersivity side. So, do not worry, we are creating Waking the Glares keeping in mind a classical PC station so that everyone can enjoy what we are doing.

Unreal Engine 4

We are creating Waking the Glares giving our best in every aspect of the experience. We are very focused on the narration, but this doesn't mean that we won't aim to a great graphic that enhances the players' experience!
