CALENDULA Release
Calendula has been Greenlit. There is no way back.
Description
Release date: Early 2016
How to play a game that doesn't want to be played?

What is Calendula?
Calendula is an experience. Calendula is a mystery. Calendula is a glass full of blood. Calendula is an experiment. Calendula is an atmospheric game. Calendula is a flower. Calendula is your deepest secret...



About Calendula
  • Calendula begins as a usual game... until it is not anymore.
  • The player's goal will be to unveil the mystery behind an apparently broken game, but it won't be easy.
  • Calendula's mechanics are entirely focused on the struggle of trying to start a game, exploring the limits of the 4th wall and breaking with conventions.
  • Calendula's aesthetics follows an increasing obscure atmosphere, plunging the player into a disturbing, thrilling experience.
  • The narrative is built within a labyrinth of metaphors and abstractions, ready to be unraveled.
  • Unlike other games, the player will feel as if things didn't work the way they should, similar to Twin Peaks' Red Room (David Lynch).
  • The player's journey goes from simple to complex, from bright to somber, from real to dreamlike.
  • To follow Calendula's path, the player will have to use his wit and think outside the box. In this case, a tiny oppressive box.

Please, remember this: It is not your fault...

Originally posted by Nathan Grayson, Kotaku Steamed:
"If you ask me, the scariest things are the ones that feel a little too real. Meta as f*ck? You betcha."
Originally posted by Alice O'Connor, Rock, Paper, Shotgun:

"Calendula is due to blow your mind. Calendula aims to break classic video game conventions and the fourth wall in one weird blow."
Originally posted by Twinsen, NivelOculto:
"I can say without fear of contradiction that is the most stimulating game that I've had in my hands in a long time."
Originally posted by Zelinkavo, ElBotonSelect:
"Calendula is everything you've never seen or even considered in a video game. It is a game genre itself. Likely to become a reference for many indie developers in the future."

¿Vais a poner el castellano en el juego? Porque para ser un juego nacido en tierras españolas, no veo el español como idioma añadido. Seria un gran varapalo, no tener disponible el español. Así que por favor, metedle el español. :steamsalty:
