Art Update for Tombeaux
Tombeaux is a first-person exploration game set in a historically accurate 3D environment. Currently being developed as a solo art, design, and research project by Dave Beck, this interactive historical experience investigates the convergence between cultures and the environment across a few hundred years of midwestern American history. The game takes place on a small section of the St. Croix River (which acts as a border river between Minnesota and Wisconsin). Through exploration, the player discovers various unique objects, environments, and narratives, all of which cause reflection upon our history and our future.

Unique points about the game:

- Realistic exploratory world
- Historically researched and presented narrative and events
- Environment transforms in reaction to progress in game
- Game Audience: All ages, including non-gamers and gamers
- Focus Issues: The human nature to desire control, environmental awareness, and historical consequence
- The game is meant to be an artistic experience & concept for the player
- Tombeaux is being developed in Unity and planned for release in 2016
- Solo Project by Dave Beck

If it's just a concept, maybe don't need a lot of screenshots and don't need a video... But I think that at least the description should be much more complete. I think nobody can judge the concept with this little information you gave.

An exploration game with an historical ambiance... Ok, sound fine to start but...what else?... For example (and just the begining): which is the goal of that exploration? Have the player to achieve something? It's another sandbox mode experiment? Ho will do you reflect or use that historical ambiance... Seems that you want talk more about Cultural Anthropology that any other thing. That sounds interesting...And for that people who don't know St. Croix nor the north american midwestern what can you explain us about this scene? What makes it special or interesting for your game?...

PS: Sorry for my poor english.

You need more screenshots and videos before anyone can make a decent choice.

It looks good and all, but we don't get a whole lot of info between all 2 screenshots and the description.
